Collateral Damage or Uber Takes a Hit

I thought it was unfortunate that many of the accounts of the Florida shooter mentioned - in passing, true - that the killer had been driven to the high school via Uber.  This is about the worst kind of PR Uber could get despite what the Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel said, and this is a direct quote:  "At this point the driver is not complicit in any way, shape or form.  The driver just simply picked up a fare and dropped a fare at Stoneman Douglas."

This is not the first time though that Uber has been cited because the driver DID do something bad.  There is an interesting site that lists offenses by Uber and Flyte.

Another source reminded us all that crimes against the person in an Uber or a Flyte or a YellowCab are not listed on the police incident report by specific car firm, but by location - "Corner of 180th and Fitzgerald Street" instead.

The next thing to probably emerge will be a report from Uber  to the police of just how many rides were taken, to destinations and how often this criminally insane person used Uber.  Credit card statements will tell the tale.

But poor Uber.  Birds of a feather do NOT nest together.
