This is the most disgusting example of childish behavior I have seen in a while. I want to come through the computer and kick these kids ass until they are begging for mercy.

Source 1: New York Schoolkids Mercilessly Taunt Elderly Bus Monitor [UPDATE]

Source 2: Video Shows Bus Monitor Being Abused by Greece Athena Students | Video | TheBlaze.com

Video (NSFW language)




Quoting 
Above is a video of a 68-year-old bus monitor named Karen Klein being verbally harassed by a group of middle schoolers on their way home from Athena Middle School in Greece, New York. Throughout the ten minute video, you can hear the kids verbally berate the woman, calling her a bitch, fatass, poor, ugly, and various other words of the like. At one point in the video, you can hear one of the kids yell, “You’re so fuckin poor you fat ass,” in which Karen responds, “I try to live by some of these words, I try and it’s really hard,” referring to the words on her purse. Now, I don’t know about you, but that broke my fucking heart. There’s even a point in the video where one of the kids touches Karen’s arm in an attempt to make fun of her. I’m not sure why these kids would want to bully a senior citizen to tears, but I feel we should do something, or at least try.

She doesn't earn nearly enough ($15,506) to deal with some of the trash she is surrounded by. Lets give her something she will never forget, a vacation of a lifetime!

You can also contact the Principal of the school about this: David.Richardson @ greece.k12.ny.us

There is one positive thing that has come of this. A fundraiser has been created for this woman to go on vacation away from these parentless pricks:

Lets Give Karen -The bus monitor- H Klein A Vacation! -- Indiegogo

Just shy of $100,000 has been raised in one day so far. I hope she never has to work with kids like this again.

One of the worst things, Karen said, was when the kids were taunting that her children should kill themselves. One of Karen's children committed suicide 10 years ago.

Fox News website also had this. Makes me sick. A public caning of the kids and their parents is in order here.

I can't imagine the beating I would have gotten if I had done something like this as a juv. My dad would have put a " single syllable mule whoopin'" on me. Of course, I wouldn't have done something like this (not that I didn't get into my fair share of mischief) because I knew what kind of beating I would have gotten.

I couldn't agree more with a sound caning. Way too much lack of respect. However, in the current politically correct environment, perhaps the best thing that could realistically be done is to put those kids for a week or two in one of those "shock camps" for disciplinary action. Unfortunately, even a week or two probably wouldn't be enough time to correct fourteen years of "moral" upbringing.

For sure these kids need a good swat at least and that's the problem no one can touch them for fear of getting sued or something.....

I think behavior like this and lack of respect for elders or even others is sadly commonplace these days.

Now at almost $ 500,000. This thing will be over a million by the end of the 30 day fundraiser I bet.

All bullied bus monitor Karen Klein wanted was an apology. Now she's getting that and then some.

Police say the four boys who tormented the 68-year-old on a school bus in upstate New York earlier this week have taken responsibility for their actions. They are also saying they're sorry.

"I feel really bad about what I did," one said in a statement to CNN. "I wish I had never done those things. If that had happened to someone in my family, like my mother or grandmother, I would be really mad at the people who did that to them."

Another said, "When I saw the video I was disgusted and could not believe I did that. I am sorry for being so mean and I will never treat anyone this way again."

The video of the seventh-graders cursing, taunting and physically threatening a crying Klein has become a rallying point against bullying. It has also prompted an overwhelming outpouring of support for the longtime school bus worker.

An online campaign to fund a vacation for Klein had grown to nearly $500,000 by Friday morning, far surpassing the initial $5,000 goal. Max Sidorov, the Toronto man who started the fund two days ago, said he did so partly because he was bullied himself as a child.

"Maybe we can send her on a great, early retirement," Sidorov told the Associated Press.

Then Anderson Cooper surprised the grandmother of eight on CNN Thursday night with an all-expenses paid trip for nine people to Disneyland from Southwest Airlines. The Walt Disney Company made the same offer for Disney World.

"I want to thank everybody for so much kindness," Klein told the Rochester Democrat and Herald.

But not all of the reaction has been positive. School officials in Greece, N.Y. and the boys who bullied Klein have received a barrage of threatening messages. Police stepped up patrols near the teens' homes.

"We have a cellphone of one of the boys and he's received more than 1,000 missed calls and more than 1,000 text messages threatening him," Capt. Steve Chatteron said. "Threats to overcome threats do no good."

Klein issued a plea for the madness to end.

"I feel kinda bad for them and their families because of what's going on," she said. "They're being harassed terribly and I don't like that. I don't want any harm to come to them."

Humbling words given the week she's had.

Hopefully in a couple weeks there is a follow-up by MSM that confirms she has received all that money.

Students who bullied N.Y. bus monitor are suspended for a year - CNN

Students who bullied N.Y. bus monitor are suspended for a year

Four middle school students caught on camera verbally abusing their bus monitor have been suspended for a year and will be required to complete 50 hours of community service, school district officials said Friday.

"Following individual meetings this week with school and district administrators, each family waived their right to a hearing and agreed to one-year suspensions from school and regular bus transportation," the Greece Central School District said in a statement.

I was pretty shocked by this story. And worse, a 68 yr old trying to do her part. I agree those kids "have no parents". clockwork orange mentality. I would blame some of the out of control modern entertainment media , especially anti-social themed video games and some tv/internet channel programming for setting bad examples. Not all of those kids will change or feel remorse but at least they now recognize there are consequences.
