This just pisses me off.. I honestly HOPE that the school officials will decide to press charges as well as expel the students who were involved in beating her to an unconscious state. People like that in our society should not have the benefit in receiving public education if they are not willing to cooperate with one-another.

Parents helped create this mess by constantly trying to coddle their children against school discipline. A story you hear over and again is that in the past, when a child or teen got into trouble at school, they got into trouble again at home. In other words, parents and the schools worked together as a team, to give kids discipline and boundaries.



Now, if a student gets in trouble, the parents are just as likely to threaten to sue the school.

Kids should be raised up better than that... Also, the bus driver should have pulled over and taken action.

What happened was wrong but then again we live society where violent UFC fights are being showed on Fox 5 and parents buy their 8 to 12 year olds violent games like Call of Duty. We live in a society with the most homicides and violent crimes out of all the OCED nations. I believe this is picking salt out of pepper.

The driver was probably afraid to do anything.



In my day (which wasn't that long ago, I'm not that old), the driver would have pulled over and commenced tossing those kids out on their ass, one by one. And then the parents would have been called, and then the kids really would have gotten it.



Nowadays, if the driver even attempted any such thing, the parents would form a coalition against bus driver "oppression" and filed a lawsuit.
