    Good to see that Uber refunded the fare and suspended the driver.  What a profoundily stupid thing for a driver to do.

    We don't have enough information, IMO.   All the information available solely from the guys mom, and she wasn't even there. 

    At 24 he had his own apartment, has a smart phone and can travel independently.  He's not as helpless as his mother claims.  This is him during the TV interview.

    How do we know that he didn't input the wrong address, then after driving there the driver realized that the address was wrong and correct address input?  If it was a passenger error, it's not the drivers fault. 

    Uber refunded the ride amount, but that's hardly an indication of wrongdoing by the driver.  How many of you have been wrongly deactivated by Uber without a chance to prove your side?  I have, and I won't make that assumption about other drivers based on one sided evidence.

      OK, now I am angry. Who is this driver?  We need to save him!  Somehow...

      That's messed up that this PR, fake news, ploy will bring down this driver.  Uber won't fight it because the condition of this kid. I mean look at the headline. 

      This driver will be deactivated and his livelihood ruined!!   That's messed up.  That should be an article on its own.

    I feel like there must be more to this story.  The kid looks perfectly capaleble of taking an Uber and he had his phone with him.  What was he doing for 2 hours?  Why didn't he call or say anything?

    How did this driver ever think he'd get way with it?  It's all recorded.  Paper trail.
