NYC Cabbie Suspended For Swastika Armband

Deranged driver will lose his operator’s license for 30 days

A New York City cab driver has been suspended for 30 days for wearing a swastika armband while driving his yellow cab. The city’s Taxi and Limousine Commission questioned the cabbie after the Anti-Defamation League reported complaints from riders.

According to a press release from the ADL commending the TLC’s swift response, “After receiving complaints from the public, ADL expressed concern to the TLC, which subsequently suspended the driver’s operator’s license for 30 days after he pleaded guilty to violating commission rules.”

As Gothamist points out, a 30-day suspension seems a bit short, especially considering there was a cab driver riding around with a visible swastika on his window-side arm. That is literally the stuff of my nightmares.
