That guy should definitely be fired.

On another note, I find it funny how they specify he was a "white Muslim convert." I wonder if this story would have even been reported if he were not a white convert and a Middle-Easterner.

On what grounds?

I use busses as my main form of transport in the UK and have had many drivers pull-up to answer their mobile phones, yet there was no complaint from the passengers, so what's wrong with pulling the bus over to answer a call from Allah?

so because they were in a building and not on a ranch they are no longer civilians??

a civilian is a civilian is a civilian no matter where they are standing.....

also they do try and kill as many civilians as possible with the hopes of it reaching the target (whoever it is). The more people they kill the more attention it gets.

on the topic of the bus driver though, who cares if he wants to pray, let him. That is his right, but he shouldn't be telling people to get off of the bus though as they pay for those busses both through taxes and fares, if he doesnt like it then he can get another job where people arent depending on him to get them to their destination as quickly, safely and on schedual as possible.

You obviously haven't travelled on busses in the UK then.

They'll get you there safely, but the other two points?...don't make me laugh!

A civilian that has committed murder is tried and imprisoned; in some states sentenced to death.

someone deemed the trade center and defence department "appropriate" targets

that doesnt make sense, you comparing innocent unsuspecting civilians in a building to civilians who commit murder???? wtf?

of course they are tried and punished, some sentenced to death but what does that have to do with terrorists blowing themselves up in crowded markets or flying planes into buildings??

your right i havent.
I dont live in a big city or anything far from it (40,000 people or so) but 95% of the time our busses here are running smoothly and on time.

Perhaps the "social institution" that is the WTC, Pentagon, et al. commits murder?

Perhaps someone wished to show that if you associate with those institutions... you might blow up.

One might suspect, terrorism is not about blowing up lots of random innocent civilians...

but more so, about blowing up groups of semi-specific, not-so-innocent civilians involved in "unholy" alliances with, deemed, corrupt institutions; targets.

You know... like nuking a large Japanese city because the workers were involved in manufacturing weapons...

oops those were just textile mills...

damn.

How about the driver do his JOB! I got on the bus because it keeps a set schedule. I needed to be at a certain place at a certain time. Except for an "act of God", or traffic delays beyond the drivers control, I expect to be taken by this bus to my stop on time.
If I were a patient in an operation and the surgeon says "OK, everybody stop, I have to pray now" I would kick his a** out.
If I had any person working for me and they did this while on the clock they would be fired immediately.
Let's get real people. You can have your religious beliefs and practices but don't expect others to change their routine just for you.

Well, just look on it as another form of travel insurance!

At least if you were late on this bus then it must have been by the will of Allah that you were destined to be late
