When I was young, we rode the bus to and from school every morning and every afternoon. It always got a little wild when we had a substitute driver for our usual driver, Mr. Royster. He didn’t put up with a lot of BS on his bus and wasn’t afraid to stop the bus and not move until everyone had settled down. However, we weren’t so bad as to have this happen often, and for the most part everyone on the bus respected Mr. Royster, as well as all of our elders. Disrespecting teachers, aunts, uncles or our elders was simply NOT tolerated in our home and you only backtalked one time before you were taught a lesson. I’m not sure what has happened as a society that parents are not teaching their children basic manners and RESPECT. They are not parenting their children. This thought that you need to be your child’s BFF is not successful. People’s children just don’t care – and they have complete and total disregard for the feelings of others; children and adult alike. The apple does not fall far from the tree in most cases.
The four heathens from Greece, NY are a prime example of parental failure. Bus monitor, Karen Klein, has been a bus driver and monitor with the Greece Central Schools for over 20 years and was bullied to tears in a video that one of the little shits posted on Youtube and it went viral. Bet they weren’t expecting to get so popular because of their assholish deeds.
What these four kids did to this woman was rotten, mean, vicious and their parents should be SO proud of them for raising little monsters that abuse and disrespect their elders, and authority. For almost 10 minutes this group of middle school kids taunted, threatened, and humiliated their school bus monitor until she cried. Sexual threats were made to her, as well as threats of physical violence. They were telling her how fat and disgusting she is, how they want to stab her, and how her entire family probably killed themselves because they hated being related to her. What kind of a child does this to an adult? Teens can be jerks, but there’s a line between asshole teen behavior and cruelty. These kids are CRUEL and should be kicked off the bus for a year. Let their parents worry about how they are going to get back and forth to school. In my opinion, these kids are the product of bad parenting. Imagine how they act at home if this is how they treat someone old enough to be their grandmother?
Greece Police are questioning the four middle school students and will decide if charges will be filed in juvenile court. Deciding if they should be filed? How about they ARE filing charges. They made threats of sexual and physical violence!

Indiegogo.com has raised more than $300,000 to send the grandmother on a vacation. Click the link above if you want to donate. Maybe she can use the money to retire so she never has to deal with this kind of abuse again!
Julia Van Orman, President of the Greece Board of Education says that this should be a “teachable” incident. Really? How about letting Julia Van Orman know that NO, these kids need to be punished for their behavior. You can reach her by email: Contact Information: Julia.VanOrman@greece.k12.ny.us
