Bus stop bul­lies

Kapi-Mana News - - OPINION -

Edi­tor,

Last Tues­day (De­cem­ber 7), sev­eral peo­ple wit­nessed an ap­palling in­ci­dent at the Count­down bus stop.

An el­derly woman wait­ing for the bus was ha­rassed by a group of six kids, Maori, aged from 10 to 14 years old.

She was sub­jected to ver­bal abuse, swear­ing, in­tim­i­da­tion and as­per­sions on her mental state while sur­rounded by this group.

This con­tin­ued to the point where this lady yelled back at the kids and, af­ter hav­ing had enough of this be­hav­iour, moved to the other end of the bus stop.

The group then fol­lowed her and con­tin­ued to swear with one youth walk­ing be­hind her and mo­tion­ing to hit her.
