A case that displays discrimination and intolerance is set against the background of Rome and has as its protagonists a young disabled and a driver, an employee of Atac. Violating every rule of safety and common sense, the employee of the company responsible for urban transportation in the capital, stopped the bus he was driving in order to make the young man get off. The latter, according to witnesses, suffered from an evident mental disorder and was not left at the stop, but on the pavement of a highly trafficked street. Apparently, the boy was guilty of listening to loud music provoking, thus, the rage of the bus driver.
The was reported to the media by a psychologist who was on the same bus, line 128, direction Crocco. The woman explained that the driver stopped the bus all of a sudden, halfway between two stops, yelled at the young man and made him get off. Then he put the bus in motion and left without worrying about what the boy would have done and whether he would have been able to orient himself and to find his way home.
The inconvenient and absurd behaviour of the driver was reported to Atac which has identified the man. The company informs that all the necessary controls will be made on the situation and, if necessary, it will give way to procedures for sanctions and other measures suitable for the case.
