Las Vegas Woman Charged with Murder for Fatal Push of Elderly Man from a Bus

*The soulless Black woman who pushed a 74-year-old white man off a Las Vegas public bus has been arrested and charged with murder after he died from injuries suffered when he hit the pavement.

Surveillance video released by the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police captured the heartbreaking moment Serge Fournier was violently pushed off the bus as he attempted to exit. The footage  helped investigators identify and arrest Cadesha Michelle Bishop, 25, ABC News reports.

According to witnesses, Bishop had been cursing at other riders, prompting Fournier to tell her to “be nicer to the passengers,” according to the arrest warrant.

The video, which does not include sound, shows Fournier getting behind Bishop as the bus comes to a stop and the exit door open and shoving him with both hands off the bus. He landed face-first on the sidewalk.

Fournier “was pushed with enough force that he never touched any of the steps,” the arrest warrant stated. “[He] went directly from the bus aisle platform to the concrete sidewalk. His head landed approximately eight feet from the bus doorway.”

Bishop reportedly fled the scene with a child while the elderly man was found bleeding from the right side of his head. He died from his injuries a month later, on April 23, and his family notified police on May 3, the report states.

The coroner’s officer ruled Fournier’s death a homicide, as the autopsy showed he died from complications to blunt-force torso injuries.

Bishop was arrested on May 6 and held on a $100,000 bail at the Clark County Detention Center. A preliminary hearing is scheduled for May 23.
