What? Youse didn’t know there’s a punch-surcharge for trips to the airport?

cabs.jpgThis is fucking priceless. Ron Blount is a Philly cab driver, and a “longtime drivers’ advocate.” He’s currently waiting for a court hearing, scheduled for next month, to face charges of false imprisonment and simple assault. There was also an aggravated assault charge, but that was dropped last month. And these charges all stem from an (alleged) incident that took place between Blount and a cab passenger. …In other words, Blount (allegedly) forced a fare to stay in the cab while he beat him.

What makes this priceless?

This is the guy who was just elected president of the brand new Unified Taxi Workers Alliance! The guy who (allegedly) beats his passengers is now the head of the cab union.

I fucking love Philadelphia.
