First, the good news. Michael Cubie, the suspect in the racist sucker punch attack on a 54-year-old city bus driver in Kansas City, Missouri, has been charged with serious “Assault with Intent to Commit Bus Hijacking and third degree assault,” and he was identified by the fare beaters who had boarded the bus with him. The decency they showed tells me that they are not race warriors.

Cubie confessed to police that he had gone on the bus without paying, and planning to assault the white driver. He reportedly told them he “was having a bad day.” Actually, he was having a great day. Farebeating, sucker punching an older white man? Racist punks like Cubie have no idea what a “bad day” is.

The bad news? Cubie wasn’t charged with a hate crime, and the Kansas City Star protected him, by refusing to name him, or publish his mug shot.

A word to all of the blogs that re-posted the video of the attack: after I had viewed the video, it took me over 30 minutes of additional sleuthing, just to track down the city where the crime had been committed. If you want to be considered a legitimate alternative to the MSM, then act like one. If you’re too lazy or indifferent to be bothered to identify the city, then don’t expect anyone to take you seriously as a news source. It was the MSM’s penchant for withholding essential information that drove news-hungry citizens to the Web, in the first place.

Police make arrest in bus driver assault caught on video

Kansas City police on Friday arrested a man suspected of punching a bus driver in the face earlier this week after the driver ordered him and his friends off the bus, Police Chief Darryl Forté said on Twitter.

Details of where or how the arrest occurred were not released. However, Forté wrote, the case file is expected to be presented Saturday to the Jackson County prosecutor’s office, which will determine if criminal charges will be filed.

The assault, which was captured on surveillance video that has been broadcast locally and nationally, occurred as the assailant and his friends were exiting the bus after not paying their fares at 39th Street and Indiana Avenue.

The punch nearly knocked the 54-year-old driver unconscious while he was behind the wheel of the bus, which was carrying other passengers, police said.

The blow left the driver confused. In the video, the driver sits stunned after the punch, then repeatedly touches his face and reaches into the air.

The driver tried to continue on his route after the assault. The bus rolled forward and knocked over some orange cones before riders convinced the driver to stop the bus, police said.

Earlier, the attacker and his friends had boarded the bus, one by one, with each passenger saying the next person would “pick up” the fare. But the final passenger didn’t have enough cash for everyone. That’s when the driver told them to exit the bus, police said earlier this week.

In a statement Friday, the Kansas City Area Transportation Authority said it was pleased that an arrest has been made and that the bus operator is doing well and has returned to work.

The statement added: “Thank you to everyone who took the time to send well wishes to the operator; it is heartening to hear support from near and far for the men and women who are on the roads every day.”

Suspect told police he was “having a bad day”

By 41 Action News Staff October 6, 2012 Last updated: 8 hours and 31 minutes ago [N.S.: Accessed Sunday, October 7, 2012, at circa 4:30 a.m.] KSHB News [NBC affiliate] KANSAS CITY, Mo. - A Kansas City, Mo., man has been charged with assaulting a Metro bus driver.

According to law enforcement officials, the driver was punched in the face around 9 p.m. on Monday at 39th and Indiana in Kansas City, Mo. He sustained serious injuries from the blow and was knocked unconscious. Surveillance video from different cameras caught the assault in detail. RELATED | Video shows assault of KC bus driver Mark Huffer, KCATA general manager, first saw the video on Tuesday. "Our understanding is the youth that were in that video did not pay their fare," he said. Several witnesses who were with Cubie told police they did not pay and were asked [told] by the driver to exit the bus. Cubie was heard saying, “On my dead homies. I’m going to hit the bus driver in his face.” Cubie then assaulted the driver on his way off the bus, according to police. Authorities said Cubie admitted to not paying bus fare and punching the driver. Cubie said the reason he punched the victim was because he was having a bad day, according to police.

Ninety percent of the buses have at least eight cameras inside and out. The newer units can hold up to three weeks' worth of video, and some even record audio.

Well, well. It looks like "Youths" and "Teens" are still doing "random" assaults. I thought crime was supposed to be way down?
