Just in case you think it is only Americans: Bus driver left brain dead, attacked over masks

France
~~~~~~
Bus driver left brain dead after being 'attacked over face masks'

The driver in Bayonne had refused to allow several people - who had no tickets and were not wearing masks - to board the bus on Sunday night, a police source told AFP news agency.

The man, who is in his 50s, sustained serious head injuries after being punched.

Five people have been arrested.

Face masks are mandatory on public transport in France.

Union sources told France Bleu's local radio station that the driver had attempted to prevent the group from bringing a dog on board the bus. The mayor of Bayonne condemned the "barbaric act", the station added.

Regional bus services have been severely disrupted as drivers refuse to work following the incident.

1. Sad.

After he was punched. This is why I don't like to see anyone condoning punches to the head. People have died from a single punch to the head.

2. The *only* exception I make to that is fascists. Nazis getting punched in the face is ok. Always.

5. Yes. There's a good documentary on people that have killed others due to "one punch"...

7. Putin has his gangs committing violence everywhere. Wouldn't be surprised

if this was another instance exploiting the pandemic.
