The shit hits the fan

This is one of the best examples I’ve ever seen how a relatively minor incident can snowball into a full blown ‘conspiracy’ involving multiple people.  Damn shame it came to this.

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.

One thing I don't think I've mentioned is that his disability level isn't really germane to the situation. Sure, it's worse when a rider who's mistreated is a disabled person, but it could be anybody that was denied boarding (or otherwise suffered due to operator rule-breaking) and decided to respond the same way.
