seriously?! three days after a horrific crash killing 3 kids and their grandfather this asshat DRT driver would drive drunk on the job with a bigger weapon than the suv muzzo was driving......

I can't even begin to understand the stupidity behind this. Here's hoping that DRT doesn't allow her back to work after a little substance abuse counseling and a slap on the wrist. She needs to lose her job and realize that you HAVE hit rock bottom when you are drinking while driving a bus and endangering innocent lives.

Seems to be happening more and more often.
Unfortunately they keep their jobs. Thanks to the Unions.
It'll be too late when they kill an innocent bystander.

Put ANYONE "in charge" and, automatically, they seem to be unconditionally exonerated of all the normal everyday expectations and responsibilities it seems.
