The continued cries of a baby drove a Portland bus driver to demand that the mother quiet the child or get off the bus, the Associated Press reported .
A witness told the AP that: “The bus driver pulled over at a scheduled stop, walked to the back of the bus, pointed at the mother and then the baby . . . The woman then walked off the bus with the child.” Other passengers followed suit in support of the mother whom they felt was being unfairly hassled.
The driver told the bus dispatcher, according to the Associated Press: “It was screaming all the way from Beaverton, and I just finally stopped the bus. I said we need to get the baby to stop screaming because I just can't drive with it screaming . . . that is not safe."
