City Bus Drivers Refusing to Stop in Crime Ridden Neighborhood in Washington D.C.

Crime is so bad in a certain Washington D.C. neighborhood that city bus drivers are simply refusing to stop in them.

The D.C. bus service and its union has decided to skip the area because it is just too dangerous…

Washington D.C.’s Metro service announced Monday night that it would no longer operate a bus route through one Southeast D.C. neighborhood, citing a recent incident in which someone shot at the bus.

Friday night at around 10:30 p.m., a man riding the bus was struck by a bullet, NBC Washington reports. Metro believes the shooter was targeting the bus specifically.

The victim, who authorities do not believe was the intended target of the attack, ran from the bus to a nearby apartment complex. He later was taken to a hospital where he was treated for non-life threatening injuries.

The decision to close down three stops on the bus line running along Elvans Road SE came at the behest of the Amalgamated Transit Union, which represents Metro bus drivers.

So, can black bus drivers be “racist” for not wanting to stop in this crime ridden area?
