Reynard Allison started this petition to Finacial Secretary ATU Local 1293 Charles E. Schroede and

StarTran bus driver Troy Fischer, who was caught on tape after hitting a passenger on his bus in the face several times last month. We demand that Local 1293 disavow and rupudiate this senseless act of abuse enacted by Troy Fischer who by the way was charged with "suspicion of misdemeanor assault"The balance of fairness is severely skewed in this case and countless others. We must demand fairness and hold accountable anyone who exacts this type of malice against another human being who has not caused threat or harm. A spokeswoman for the ATU, Marilyn Kruger, told 1011 News she has seen the video and that, "It does not accurately reflect who this man (Fischer) is." She does not think it should be released, calling it "inflammatory." She also said, "He's a good and decent man," and should not lose his job. We ask, what was good or decent about his actions? They were heinous, criminal, savage and reprehensible.
