That really sad part is that is not surprising at all


A good question to me is; why is the bus driver going to be charged with neglect? I mean, yea when you hear the news story it makes sense and all, but you have to think about what would have happened if he did intervene. All in all the kid didn't get many serious injuries, and if the bus driver did intervene he would still most likely have those injuries, but the driver would probably be looking at 3 cases of assaulting a minor

I don't know if the Zimmerman trial has something to do with it, but lately I feel the tension between whites and blacks is at an all time high. This video infuriates me because this should be national news.

While I agree that the bus driver should have done more, I can see why he was hesitant to get in the middle of that. Those 3 kids would have kicked the shit out of him, for sure.

A school bus driver's first responsibility is driving. Thier second is safety of the passengers. If they can't fulfill the first they can't fulfill the second. Not saying that's the case though.

We (the bus garage I worked at 5 years) had a few fights during the time I was driving. There was never given an answer if we, as the drivers, were supposed to step in or if we were to just call dispatch. If you push, punch, or even touch a student you can get in trouble from that students parents or even the district. It's crap.

However, If It happened on my bus (which it never did) I would be on those kids as quickly as I could. There are plenty of ways to move someone with out punching them or grabbing them. Especially when you weight 260 and have a very narrow isle to work with.

In the article I read, race did not have anything to do with it. The kid who was beat up told the principal that one of the kids beating him up tried to sell him drugs the day before. This was payback for ratting the kid out.


However that fact wouldn't stop the media if the roles were reversed.

I think he should have tried to intervene. I don't think he had a legal duty to do so. I just think it's the right thing to do.

But him being held responsible with charges being brought on him or some shit like that? What the fukc ?

I think between the high possibility of him being curb stomped or being sued for actually putting his hands on one of the attackers and called an uncle tom for helping out whitey was enough motivation for this man the stand back.

That old man knew he stood zero chance against those three hoodlums.

My biggest non shock point about all of this is the national main stream medias ability to censor out the race of the kid getting stomped out.

What's happening in this thread is the same thing that happened in the Martin/Zimmerman incident. Race is being injected for no damn reason.

Nope


The fact of race not being injected is what is being questioned in this thread. Don't mistake the two

I'm not trying to inject race into what happened. Its the part that shows the kid right before he catches a beat down that shows his race, not being shown on any major media outlet i.e. cnn, fox, nbc... Its completely edited out and its not by coincidence.
