    Why not to be a Canadian Bus driver

    Woman attacks Toronto bus driver with hammer accusing him of skipping her stop; 3 injured

    By Associated Press
    5:48 PM EDT, August 18, 2008

    TORONTO (AP) _ Police say a woman brandishing a hammer has attacked a bus driver in Toronto, setting off a melee that injured three people.

    The woman boarded the bus Monday morning and accused the driver of not stopping for her earlier, police say. She then allegedly began swinging the hammer, injuring the bus driver's hands.

    Authorities say other passengers wrestled the woman to the floor and held her until police arrived. The bus driver was taken to the hospital, and two other people suffered minor injuries.

    Charges of assault with a weapon have been filed against Chelsea Simon, 23.

    Guess we need to sign the latest petition from the Stanley Bunch to outlaw claw hammers, they are dangerous and should be taken off the streets.

    Too bad only the law abiding carpenters will not have them, but they will go for great prices on the black market.

    You're right, it's only the passengers that get-a-head.
