Bus Driver, George Daw, Fired For Saving 3 Police Officers

Are we really proud of the George Daw precedent?

The New York state bus driver was fired Monday because he “endangered welfare of students he was transporting when he picked up three unauthorized passengers,” according to the Educational Bus Company on Long Island. But as transgressive as that statement makes Daw’s actions sound, what in fact happened was what would commonly be described as either an act of heroism or at the least a Good Samaritan in action. What Daw did was rescue three police officers who were stranded in a hailstorm on Aug. 1.

  1. I’d have more sympathy if the first thing officers did when responding to a call from a crime victim’s home was something other than run a warrant check on the victim. Live by the sword, die by the sword.

    Why couldn’t he just drive them to a safe place instead of all the way back to their precinct? Why did the cops ask for the precinct ride instead of just helping them out of the hail storm. What about when they arrest a passenger as well as a DUI suspect instead of giving the passenger a ride home.

    If we’d just go back to common sense in government we’d all be better off.
