Justice on the Streets

Time: Morning Rush Hour (5am-9:30am)
Location: Wisconsin Ave and Bradley Blvd

I was waiting for the bus and an employee of a company driving his work van who was waiting for the stop light started saying things and blowing me kisses. I got out my phone to film and he hid inside the van.

Because that happens every single day and I’m tired of it, I took a picture and made a complaint to the company. The company was very upset about it and fired the man.
