They Care About the Children: Striking NYC School Bus Drivers Slash Tires on Buses

Posted by on Jan 24, 2013 at 7:43 am

These thugs have been running scare tactic commercials claiming “the children” are less safe on buses driven by so-called scabs. Well, they’ll really be in trouble riding on buses with slashed and deflated tires.

But this is how the union thugs roll in Obama’s America.

Saboteurs stabbed holes in tires of two school buses and deflated tires on 10 others idled by school bus drivers’ strike, authorities and bus company employees said today.

In all, 18 tires were flattened on a dozen buses, said employees of Reliant Transportation’s lot in Greenpoint, Brooklyn.

Police are trying to determine if the vandalism reported this morning is related to the strike by Local 1181 of the Amalgamated Transit Union, which has forced 152,000 children and their parents to find other ways to get to school.

“Some buses had one flat tire some had multiple. One bus had all four,” said Leon Hasting, a Reliant employee who makes sure the buses are in compliance with safety laws and the company’s contracts.

The punctures on four tires mounted on two buses were no accident.

“They looked like they were stabbed with an ice pick or something … These were stabbed on the side,” Hastings said.

No wonder union membership is at an all-time low. Who wants to be associated with these miscreants?

    Doesn’t have to be the union. We had a couple high school senior here locally who broke into the bus barn one night and removed a bunch of the valve stem cores from the buses. It was basically just a senior prank that went way over the top.

    So it doesn’t have to be the union who did this.
    But it probably was.

    Unions in the NorthEast are notoriously bent on damage and sabatoge.
    Phone workers on strike a couple years ago caused major damage.
    It was union vandalism, they think it is their “right”
    Eff them
    Eating more taxpayer dollars to replace tires
    Should be a felony count but no cop there would bust them for it and no district attorney would prosecute it; why? well because that’s why !
    Look ! Squirrel !
