This video does tremendous harm to the public perception of TriMet operators.
They just couldn’t let it go. It’s not entirely their fault. They are part of a brutal industrial complex that pits riders against drivers which creates this sort of paranoia in the first place.

Predictably, the media latched on to the board's new darling with a lame narrative of how Kelsey "left" TransLink in Vancouver. He was fired in 2015. (See 'TransLink Makes Changes...') Somehow, he made his way into TriMet management after his ouster, leaving a trail of disastrous policy in his wake. Now, he'll bring this expertise to bear... down on us.
"You can be safe," Kelsey stated at the earlier dog-and-pony show board meeting last month, "and be on time." Spoken like someone who truly hasn't a clue about the work of the people he now rules.

Additionally, this driver has commandeered a tax funded vehicle (100% paid by tax payers) for her own personal use. So not only is she ‘stealing’ her wages she is also ‘stealing’ publicly owned equipment.
Trimet management loves watching the public hating the drivers. That way they can get away with everything. Some think that theory is crazy. I call them uninformed.
Many drivers don’t understand that with each act of brutality the public turns more and more against them. Give the riders the benefit of the doubt. Most riders are not crazy lunatics. Even the lunatics react to acts of kindness positively.
You don’t want to be on the news and you don’t want to be on YouTube unless it’s an act of kindness. We can argue details till we are blue in the face but each negative social or mainstream media post that portrays drives as heartless tax funded beasts creates another step forward to the privatization of the workforce, which is Trimet managements end goal. And that is definitely one thing you should not let happen, ever.
