MT: We are recording. It's August 19, 2015. Do you want to give your name?

JH: Yes, my name is James Holman. Yes, the police has been tolerating people's behavior. Should've been throwing people out of the bus and stuff. All of that. Man, cussing peoples out and all types of stuff. All downtown and all in Public Square. And I've been trying to do a good job and trying to protect the public. And they're not doing nothing about it. And I want something done about it.

MT: So has this happened to you on the bus?

JH: Yes, with the bus drivers. It's on camera and stuff.

MT: Okay. And it's been primarily with the transit police?

JH: Yes.

MT: Yes, okay. Thank you very much.
