Bus flap was foolish

Juneau cops calm candy-bar confrontation on bus

Clearly what happened on that bus was a continuation of a pre-existing feud between the driver and the passenger. What angers me, however, is that taxpayer funds were completely wasted on this childish exercise. What did it cost to stop the bus, disrupt the schedule, inconvenience other passengers, deploy a police unit, generate paperwork and respond to the media?

That driver made a complete fool of himself by overreacting light years beyond what was reasonable or necessary. As for the possible 90-day jail sentence and $1000 fine - well, the solution is simple. I'll stick with my car.
