Horrible, horrible video footage from December 27, 2012 shows a man being kicked out of a double decker bus in London

The video was part of a compilation from the BBC and CCTV from a project called The Route Masters: Running London's Roads. The person who fell suffered several spine injuries and is currently paralyzed. The person who kicked him escaped at first but later pled self-defense and was found not guilty. 

According to the BBC, crimes on buses have risen dramatically, as 20,000 were recorded in 2013. The city is now using a special unit from the Safer Transport Command, dispatching 1,800 officers to make rides safer.
