Top Three Uber, Lyft Knuckleheads of the Week
We assume you’ll agree—when all is claimed and skim—that “knuckleheads” is being beneficiant right here.
Knucklehead #three: Uber driver in Portsmouth arrested after posing as social worker
An Uber driver was charged with trying to impersonate a social employee so as to signal a feminine scholar out of Portsmouth High School in Rhode Island. According to reviews, the 26-year-old driver informed a faculty worker that he labored for the Department of Children, Youth and Families. When the faculty worker requested for identification, the driver stated he was new and hadn’t acquired it but.
The highschool refused to launch the woman, and the driver was later arrested.
In the course of the investigation, it emerged the highschool woman had organized a money journey with the driver.
Knucklehead #2: Man allowed to drive for Lyft despite terrorism aide conviction
A Chicago Lyft driver was reportedly lately launched from jail after serving seven years for aiding a person with ties to terrorism.
After getting out, he failed a background examine from a Chicago cab firm. He even failed Uber’s verify.
But Lyft handed him.
In response to an investigative information story, the driver reportedly said: “They should check my background before they give me the job. That’s their problem, not my problem.”
Here comes the King of the Knuckleheads. (For this week).
An Uber driver in San Antonio, Texas was arrested and accused of sexually assaulting a lady passenger who had fallen asleep in his automotive. According to reviews, the proof is damning: Her DNA was discovered on the driver after a Sexual Assault Nurse’s Exam was carried out.
As the driver was being booked, he reportedly yelled out to reporters: “She was drunk.”
It’s galling that an accused rapist would publicly blame his sufferer, if certainly that was his level. And but, the state of affairs of an intoxicated lady rider being allegedly sexually assaulted by an Uber driver is so frustratingly widespread it begs the query:
Couldn’t Uber work with RAINN to place collectively a primary orientation for starting drivers designed to stop these life-shattering sexual assaults and perhaps hold some drivers out of jail?
