Later, she knocks the boy off his seat and beats him while he is on the floor, the tape shows.
I am so happy the boy's mother believed him and called authorities.

I have a 9 year old developmentally disabled son. This hit me hard. I have to say, if I ever was able to physically come close to the person who did that to my kid, they wouldn't be walking away in very good shape. I hope her and the bus driver (who laughed at the poor boy!) get hammered by the system.

thats just disqusting. there should be "extra" penalties for ppl like this. i know it doesnt make sense, but this is a child and one who is disabled.
if i were her, i would be asking the school district to pay for him to attend a private school b/c they have traumatized him so much.
i honestly don't know how parents hold back killing someone after something like this happens to their kid.

If it were my child I would end up doing something seriously horrible to these people.

Between this and the four neglected children thread (and the rest along the lines of these), it's making me sit here and cry. That is so heartbreaking. And infuriating...the two are adults. So much for setting a good example...agh, that makes me SO angry.

If the bus driver IS reprimanded - he'll likely just go to work driving for another district, that seems to be the "way it goes"...

I'd betcha that's already been done - when she was about nine years old.

Usually people don't get this weird just out of the blue.

I wonder how the boy is doing? I'd assume he would be terrified to ever ride a bus again!

I am just so glad there was a camera to prove the truth. My heart goes out to that boy and his family. How long will it take them to trust again...

I have heard the "don't tell anyone or I'll kill you and your family" thing used very often in reference to pedophiles. I am not accusing her of that but with her displayed ability to be violent to undefended children and threaten them with death, I wonder what else that woman has gotten away with?

Never said she wasn't. Just making an observation. Screwed over kids usually make screwed up adults.
