NYC Cabs

I want to say that the video of the attack on Charles Hawkesworth is shocking and I hope that he has a speedy and complete recovery.

"I'm kind of at a point that I don't know where to turn as far as to secure and make my drivers any safer," Owen said.

I want to add that nothing gets a New Yorker more angry than the "share a cab" scam that happens all the time in NY if you're not wise to it. The cab drivers will get you to share the cab with 2 or 3 other people (especially at airports) and then charge each passenger FULL FARE. They never let you split the fare and insist that you all pay full price. I would guess that the issue about money was about precisely this, especially if he didn't want to share a cab in the first place. (I am NOT trying to justify anything; I just wanted to make a comment that might help explain what may have triggered the marine's anger.)
