    Thumbs down Racist drunk/cabbie abuse

    CALGARY – Global News has obtained disturbing and graphic video of a passenger launching a vicious verbal and racist attack on a Calgary cab driver.

    Almost two years later, the attack has left cabbie Sardar Qayyum, a 35-year-old father of four, permanently scarred.

    It began in the early morning of November 17, 2013, when Qayyum picked up three people from a party in downtown Calgary. After dropping off two of the customers, the remaining passenger wanted to stop at a McDonald’s restaurant on the way to his home in Airdrie.

    However his taxi chit was going to expire in 13 minutes and even though Qayyum had agreed to stop, the man became enraged and the verbal assault began.

    On video from a CCTV mounted on the cab’s dashboard, the passenger says “You tried to f—k me, you tried to f—me.”

    “You son-of-a-bitch, you f—ing c—sucker, go back to where are from; take your wife and four kids. I feel sorry for your kids, You’re going to train them not to live in Canada, how we live in Canada.”

    The passenger goes on to yell “what are you f—ing going to, strap a bomb to your body, huh?”

    Qayyum endured the attack silently, only speaking to ask the passenger for directions.

    “I was totally helpless,” he told Global News. “I was thinking if I couldn’t say anything to him, he might stop, but that unfortunately didn’t happen. He kept yelling at me using those f-words: ‘explode,’ ‘terrorist,’ he was using all those racist words.”

    The words would cut deep for anyone and for Qayyum, a proud Canadian citizen, they were devastating.

    “This is basically the country of immigrants; we all came from somewhere and we are Canadian now.This nation we built as immigrants and how people can use those racist words, how is it possible?”
    As the barrage continued, the passenger is seen yelling: “How do you sleep at night? Just think about bombs and s—t, blowing s—t up, you f—king asshole, I could punch your head off.”

    The passenger then rips the surveillance camera out of the cab.

    “He punched the camera in my chest and I just opened the car and left,” said Qayyum. “He physically broke that car."

    The man paid to fix the damage to the cab but he was never charged.

    “It really was disturbing,” said Qayyum. “I couldn’t eat for seven days.”

    “Daytime is OK, but nighttime? People really don’t care about the cab drivers; they think we are the worst people of society.”
    This isn’t the only incidence of abuse seen in Calgary cabs. In part two of this series tomorrow, Global News will tell you how human rights advocates and the RCMP are reacting.

    Wonder why this is coming out two years later. In car video in the link.

    Wow, what a fucking racist piece of shit. It disgusts me that we have people living all around us that think and act the way this guy did.

    By the look of his clothes and living in Airdrie I would assume he is a career under achiever with some serious issues regarding his success and place in life.

    Pleas explain how living in Airdrie makes someone an underachiever in life. As a resident of Airdrie I am interested in hearing your theory.

    Mental anguish? Still, it pales in comparison to a chainsaw.

    That was the first thing I thought of after reading the article. The second was, the cab driver is probably far more educated than that POS passenger.

    I think it can be pretty difficult to get charges against the passenger to stick esp when he was drunk, I am sure there was a good reason for not charging him.

    Uh huh.

    So as long as I'm drunk, I can get away with verbal assault, destruction of private property, and most ironically, drunk and disorderly in public.

    Your kidding me right? Drinking is a calculated risk that you take. You are accountable for your actions when you are drinking.

    I don't think he should have gotten a criminal record, as it was a stupid drunken thing to do, and a criminal record can ruin someone's life.

    I think he should pay for the repairs, pay some financial retribution to the cabbie, and made to perform community service.

    Intoxication or impairment isn't a defence in Canada so there is no issue with that. In fact, if your inability to tolerate your drugs or alcohol contributed to your criminality, it can be an aggravating factor. I believe the only reason this guy wasn't charged is because this hasn't been reported to the police until now. At least that's how I'm reading this.

    Well if he was charged with criminal assault, criminal harassment, etc. as you said he should have been a criminal record is exactly what he would have ended up with.

    Which way do you want it?

    He did pay for the damage and financial reparations is bullshit american style justice.
