The Telegraph says the mugger and accomplices had pulled similar crimes, but perhaps this incident will change his ways. Hit by...

    It's a punishment as old as mankind: shame. A judge has ordered an Ohio woman, who drove on a sidewalk to get around a school bus, to wear a sign that reads “only an idiot drives on the sidewalk to avoid a school bus.” Chris Tritico, president of the Harris County Criminal Defense Lawyers Association, says he likes the creative sentencing. "You know in some respects it's really not a bad deal sometimes." Tritico says it also serves as a deterrent. "I think it clearly sends a message to other people who might wanna be as stupid as this person...

    OCTOBER 12--The Cleveland bus driver who delivered an uppercut to an unruly female passenger told cops that he struck the woman after she grabbed his throat and spit in his face as he was driving, according to police reports.

    Arutz Sheva ^ | 6/10/12 | Gil Ronen
    It was a scene typical of the times in Israel. On a Be'er Sheva bus carrying mostly elderly Jews, an Arab boy began singing out loud in a way that seemed calculated to convey his disdain for his fellow passengers. Repeated attempts by passengers and the driver to get the boy to pipe down only resulted in more disruption, as the boy was joined by another, younger boy, in their annoying song. Push came to shove, shove came to kick, and the boys were taken off the bus, which drove away – but not before the boys had thrown a...
