    Scandelous, he needs to go to prison for that, she could have easily been killed.

    Well done to the bus driver for the quick avoidance.

    I'd say attempted murder.

    Can you prove intent for her to be killed, rather than it simply being a case of entitled peanut barging his way through?

    It looks to me as if he swerved deliberately at her so I'd want to know if there was any link between the two and hence whether he had any reason to want to kill the pedestrian.

    You don't think the police will have already considered that and asked the woman concerned?

    If they've traced her or she's made a complaint, of course. Maybe the Police know who he is and his motive and now want to interview him but that's the only image they have.

    No, you can't prove intent to kill, but you need nothing beyond the vid to see that this was not a case of 'barging through'. He had loads of room; she wasn't impeding him in any way. He went out of his way to push her into traffic. Barging though is selfish; this is psychopathic. Let's hope he gets id'd and banged up before he can cause serious injury or worse.

    I just posted that his comment was 'the most moronic thing I've read this week...probably this year.' Went back five minutes later on the off-chance of a response, only to find I have been cast into utter darkness! I've been banned from reading his tweets. :cry:

    They don't like it up 'em do they. :becool:
