Conservative Councilwoman Caught Slapping 6-Year Old Special Needs Student's Face | Alternet

Quote:
A 62-year-old Des Moines, Washington city councilwoman, former state legislator and King County Superior Court judge is in hot water after cameras caught her slapping the face of a 6-year-old special needs student.

According to Seattle’s Fox Q13, Jeanette Burrage — who is now a bus-driver for the Highline School District — is facing charges of 4th degree assault in connection with the incident, which took place on March 10.

King County Sheriff’s Sgt. B.J. Myers said that police responded to a call on that day regarding a disturbance on a school bus. There was no indication at the time that an assault had occurred, but when school district officials reviewed the video footage, they saw and heard Burrage slap the student during an altercation.

School district employees reported the incident to Seattle-Tacoma Police on March 18 after reviewing the video.

Burrage has reportedly been a bus driver for the school district since 2011, but the process has now begun to remove her from the job, said police.
Some family values.

I'm more interested in the fact (?) that a former judge is now a school bus driver. Something is out of whack here.
Thanks from kbear

Anyway, a difficult situation for all.

Quote:
Christian was clearly agitated in the video, she said. After the bus monitor asked Burrage for help because Christian’s behavior was escalating, Lyshol said Burrage got into Christian’s personal space and asked him if “he wanted to go home.”

Christian “raised his hand to swat at her,” said Lyshol. Lyshol couldn’t tell from the video “if he actually made contact with her (Burrage), but it did appear he was going to strike her.”

Everyone could use a little attitude adjust at times in their lives.
If you don't believe in this visit your kid in prison or boot hill.
