I also read the driver was texting his mom initially after incident. Often, criminals do that to create their narrative.

Personally, Im getting rope out and knots tied.



REALLY?!



Really, I've got no use for a couple of welfare rats that kill kids.


This is not a land of supposition and witch hunts. This is a land of prove guilty.

Apparently there is video and the bus has what one might consider a black box recorder...I don't think it was a terrorist attack because he could have just as easily taken them somewhere to do the unthinkable or simply go head on into a tree...looks like he lost control...

I'm dubious about the statements asking the children if they wanted to die but let's wait for the facts to come in...horrible...just horrible

Unfortunately, in this case, US law requires he either has an attorney or represents himself if able to do so. Hopefully it is an open and shut case if he did intentionally do this and regardless of attorney he gets the maximum sentence.

They were reporting that on my local station this morning.

That same parent also said that she had repeatedly complained about that driver because he was always going too fast and scaring the kids on purpose.

How did the mother know what the driver said, when she wasn´t on the bus?


It was reported that she had three children of the bus and this is what the two surviving kids told her about it.

Maybe asking them if they wanted to die was a joke.

Maybe pretending to be a 'crazy' bus driver was part of a character he played for the kids.

He then attempted to mock 'crazy' drive and lost control.

Doesn't matter. If parents have been reporting him for scaring kids, then it was a part that was already going too far before it went tragically far.

The only game, then, was in his head.

I have no idea either.



The first question I had was whether it was an intentional act. His quote makes it seem so, but it's not completely certain. Maybe the breaks wouldn't work and he blurted out the first asinine thing that popped into his addled brain.

However, I suspect all these other people are entertaining racial and/or religious motivations.

I don't want to think it either but, folks sure seem to be going off of the deeper end lately, IMO

There is a rumor that he may have been texting his GF at the time as well.

I wonder if the children who reported his words could have been so traumatized that their brains created a scenario to help them make sense of what happened?

Not saying he did or didn't say what is being reported just that I wonder what something so traumatic can do to a little mind when being replayed back and questioned, perhaps, by authorities.

which is why we need facts before we jump to the conclusions that enter our minds. Not that the outcome will bring back the children who were lost, but an accident would be so much easier to deal with I think.

I'm not entertaining any motivation except that it seems like he meant to do it.

Why was the DA and LE so quick to file charges ??
That speaks for itself.
They are aware of something that has not been stated publicly.

I agree on that. If it was truly accidental, it would have been manslaughter or accidental death, something to indicate that whatever happened, the driver did not mean for the children to die even though they inadvertently did through some sort of negligence on his part.

Than again, there have been a slew of over zealous prosecutors lately, however usually they are seeking racial justice and that isn't a factor here.
