Black Lives Matter Protester Ignites Flame Thrower on Top of New York City Bus!
The New York Police Department is investigating an incident that involved a person using a flamethrower atop a New York City bus, according to NBC New York.
"We don't even need to say how absurd, dangerous and just plain stupid this was,"
Metropolitan Transportation Authority Communications Director Tim Minton told NBC New York. "The reckless individual who torched over the top of an occupied city bus put New Yorkers, including the bus operator, in life-threatening peril."
Elliot Bey, the owner of nearby wine store Franklin Cellars, told NBC New York he shut his shop down and the stunt went on for hours. "It's unsafe, it's just crazy," Bey said.
"That being said, if I was looking at a movie, or if I was at the circus it would be fine," Bey added.
There were no reported injuries. Owning or using a flamethrower is not illegal in New York City or state.
