Packed bus forced to stop service after passenger racially abuses driver.

Shocking video shows a man racially abusing a bus driver in Dublin in front of passengers prompting the vehicle to go out of service.
The horrifying tirade showed the man aim expletive-filled abuse at the employee. Witnesses said a relative of the abuser had flipped their finger at the driver, who refused to continue while he was on the bus. The man in the video can be heard calling the driver a c*** several times before viciously stating that he will "rip [his] head off. He then goes on to say: "F*** that having these foreign b******* thinking that they can tell us what way this place is run, they don't even know."One passenger managed to record the whole incident on their phone as the man was on his foul-mouthed and racist rant and said it all started when the man's younger cousin allegedly started being difficult to the driver. The person, who wants to remain anonymous, said: "It happened in the evening time on Tuesday."From what I saw, the man's younger cousin - who was maybe 13 or 14 years old - was being initially difficult and abusive to the driver overpaying.
"They had an altercation between themselves and then the man in the video came to the defence of his cousin and that's why he reacted like that to the driver."They added: "When I put up the video, the only thing that I really had in mind and had a problem with was how quick the man was to see race and nationality and to bring that up."There was a large group of non-Irish people at the bus stop and he seemed unashamed to scream foreigners at us. I was the only person of colour there apart from the driver too."They concluded: "I think everyone was pretty afraid to intervene because of how aggressive he was acting and also he looked pretty big.
"I didn't feel safe at the time to do anything. He was practically spitting with rage at the bus window behind where the driver sits."They added: "When I put up the video, the only thing that I really had in mind and had a problem with was how quick the man was to see race and nationality and to bring that up."There was a large group of non-Irish people at the bus stop and he seemed unashamed to scream foreigners at us.
