    According to the article he pushed the girl out the back door of the bus.

    From the article:

    Officials said the boy who pushed her is being disciplined and may be placed on another bus route

    Was there traffic behind the bus? This could have been much more than a broken collar bone if there was traffic behind the bus...... AND the kid didn't lose his priviledges to ride the bus. That in and off itself will continuously put every child this boy rides with in danger. How are they going to guaranty the safety of the other passengers?

    Kick him off the bus and prosecute the kid. :furious:

    According to the article, these children go to a private school for disabled children. It may be that the child who pushed her (and then fell out himself) may cognitively be incapable of processing what danger he put her in.

    Sounds like they need more "matrons" as the article says, on the bus to keep violent encounters from becoming this dangerous.

    According to the article this poor girl was bullied twice - by two different boys. First, one boy was spitting on her and throwing books at her and the matron told her to move - she did and that's when the 2nd boy pushed her out the back door.

    If this is a bus for disabled children - then they definitely need more than one adult on that bus. And, WTH was wrong with that bus' back door? You should never be able to open that back door while the bus is in motion - period.

    The girl was 13 - didn't say how old the two boys were. This is a blatant case of bullying - and the "adults" in charge were negligent.

    The fact that he fell out himself definitely suggests that the disabilities involved are mental. He probably simply did not understand what he was doing and got agitated by the original scuffel.

    I sometimes see kids like that with their minders on the bus route I use to go to work. I'm sure they are mostly harmless, but their behaviour gets quite inappropriate at times. It is easy to see how they could do something dangerous without appreciating the implications.

    Yep! Here:


    The 13-year-old girl told the Daily News that one student had been spitting on her and tossing books at her, and a matron told her to move to the back of the bus to get away.

    After she did, she said, another boy came at her and pushed her out the back door. He also fell out the door with her.

    Well, that didn't take long.

    Lawsuit will be filed next week.

    Amazing, the more stories about this you read it's hard to tell WHAT happened on that bus - all the media articles disagree. The most consistent story I could find (complete with pictures and full name of the victim) say she got on the bus and had some kind of disagreement with two girls - the spitting/book throwing thing. Then she was asked to go to the back of the bus because the bus monitor had her hands full at that time with a more violent encounter than spitting and book throwing. So she went back there, and the boy freaked out and opened the bus door from the back and somehow they both landed on the street in traffic.

    I can't imagine any school administrator thought it was a good idea to fill up a bus with adolescents with behavioral and mental health problems, put one woman on there to keep the peace, and everything would be fine.

    I wonder if there's video.

    Well, and why the hell did SHE have to move when she was the one being bullied in the first place? Way to reward the bullies, bus-matron.

    Before she got on the bus, she was in an altercation with two girls and that escalated to spitting and book throwing. While the matron dealt with something more violent, she separated the girls and sent one to the opposite end of the bus to stop the fight. I don't think anyone, at this point, could see who was doing what, the mother said the other girl had "picked a fight" with her daughter, so this was a "fight". The poor matron had her hands completely full and separated the two sparring girls. The entire bus was filled with kids from this school, and it's likely dust-ups like that happen every single afternoon and the matron is playing whackamole basically to keep the kids from injuring each other more seriously than spitting on each other.
