Deadly attack on bus drivers: some of the most heinous, unspeakable act

In France, reigns horror at the deadly attack on a bus driver. It was an "absolutely vile, unspeakable act," said interior Minister Gérald Darmanin on Saturday evening with a visit to the city of Bayonne. There, the bus driver had been attacked about a week ago – a dispute over the protection of masks was gone. The Endfünfziger died on Friday. Politicians are now calling for harsh penalties for the perpetrators of France's new Prime Minister promises to resolve.

Darmanin met in the afternoon with Bayonnes mayor Jean-René Etchegaray – a Meeting with the security forces and bus drivers on the agenda. He made a picture of the safety on site. He did not know that bus drivers, inspectors, or U-Bahn drivers would often be afraid. "We are here to reassure you." This unprovoked violence should never be a habit. French Prime Minister Jean Castex had previously assured them that the justice "the perpetrators of this despicable is crime punish".

according to Reports, the driver had asked on last Sunday, near the border to Spain and nearby Bayonne, a group of three men in his Trambus to wear a mask. At the same time, a fourth man rose, whose Ticket he wanted to control. The men insulted thus, finally, the bus driver and attacked him; he was violently beaten on the head. At the beginning of the week, he was declared brain dead.

The bus driver, Philippe M. was on the verge of retiring and the father of three children. "I feel like in a nightmare," said his wife, Véronique, the French press. "You can't do that yet because of the bus tickets. To kill but not just like that.“ She called for a tough, deterrent punishment for the perpetrators. "We need to strike with the fist on the table, so something like this never happens again, she said. "It is barbaric, not normal."
