Relatives of the MTA bus driver who allegedly shot a man eight times in broad daylight on Long Island before calmly embarking on his daily route said the victim was a randy church pastor who bedded his wife.
Richard Davidson, 36, allegedly pumped eight bullets into Tony Hinds, 43, Sunday before being arrested later that day by Nassau cops as he drove his bus through Brooklyn.
Davidson’s sister told The Post that Hinds, the couple’s pastor who also works as a real-estate agent and manages the Valley Stream cleaning company where he was shot, had seduced Davidson’s wife, Tanika, right out from under him.
“The one who was supposed to help him twisted the knife in his back,” said Davidson’s sister, Ann. “He’s the one who is having an affair with [Davidson’s] wife.”
Hinds’ son yesterday acknowledged that his father was the pastor at an Ozone Park church, but wouldn’t comment on the allegations of an affair. Davidson’s neighbors said the driver snapped over his wife’s alleged dalliance.
Hinds remains in stable condition, and Davidson, who was remanded without bail and faces an attempted-murder rap, is due in court today.
Solomon says it best in Proverbs 6:20-29:
20 My son, obey your father’s commands, and don’t neglect your mother’s instruction. 21 Keep their words always in your heart. Tie them around your neck. 22 When you walk, their counsel will lead you. When you sleep, they will protect you. When you wake up, they will advise you. 23 For their command is a lamp and their instruction a light; their corrective discipline is the way to life. 24 It will keep you from the immoral woman, from the smooth tongue of a promiscuous woman.
25 Don’t lust for her beauty. Don’t let her coy glances seduce you. 26 For a prostitute will bring you to poverty,but sleeping with another man’s wife will cost you your life.27 Can a man scoop a flame into his lap and not have his clothes catch on fire? 28 Can he walk on hot coals and not blister his feet? 29 So it is with the man who sleeps with another man’s wife. He who embraces her will not go unpunished.
What the bus driver did was not acceptable. He could of handled this whole ordeal in a more diplomatic way as all Christian should seek to do! But my question is to the Pastor. Why throw away your ‘witness’ as a believer for another mans wife? Now this man will probably go on ‘blaspheming’ God based on this guys actions with his wife. I pray that the Pastor recovers and his family gets healed from this but this is surely a lesson to be learned.
