Oh, for Chrissake
Several investigations are under way into allegations that an off-duty Chicago police officer beat a CTA bus driver aboard his downtown bus Saturday.
The officer accused the driver of cutting him off in traffic as he rode a bicycle on a Loop street, officials said.
Officials from the driver's union said they have viewed a videotape from the bus camera that recorded the beating. "This guy, without any provocation that we can see on tape, assaulted our bus driver," said Darrell Jefferson, president of Amalgamated Transit Union Local 241, who did not see the tape but was briefed about it. "He punched him several times. Then he got off the bus, came back on the bus and punched him a couple more times."
