    if you think black people is filthy animals you should see your mother and grand father they made us this way u punk i bet you anything if a black person was in front of you rigth now you would not be saying that at all. and what happen is not the fault of being black but the fault of the parents who do not take the time to raise thier kids the right way and when a black person do kill someone it is only that one they are after not everyone in the whole damn school like you crazy ass white people,.

    MTA at NYC is Pre-Historic. Buses at Florida State all have camera in them. The subway cars and buses should already have live camera in them. There is no complaint line / email to complain about bad drivers and bad services. I’ve seen bus drivers allowing a guy to bring a big lawn bag full of smelly trash in a crowded bus, the workers are insane and their pay is insanely high. The only good out of MTA is 24hr service. For such high prices for fare their services are for the dogs not for human beings.
