I think the bus driver was in the right. A Question, just how safe is it to have unruly kids on the bus? How many lives is that putting in danger? If
they were warned to behave and didn't...... well enjoy the walk.
why should a 1/2 mile walk be a problem? if there were a decent sledding
hill and enough snow or ice within a mile of their homes you can bet they would be out there if they were bored of the video games they have, no
matter the temperature was in the single digits.
i'm in missouri and they call off school nowdays if the wind blows hard or so it seems compared to when i was in school 25 years ago.
our driver put 2 older guys(juniors or seniors)off on a gravel road for fighting one day when it was 20 or so degrees with a wind chill around 0 and
when we made the short loop to pick up a kid they were still standing where he dumped them out cause they knew we had to come back by there and when
the driver stopped and let them back on nothing was said nor were there anymore disturbances from them. 5 to 10 minutes in a couple of feet of snow
with a stiff north wind blowing up their cracks cured
them pretty quick.
it doesn't matter how old you are, if your parents did the job
right you know the difference between right and wrong,and you will pass along the same to your kids.
Well if that's -6C that's not that cold, about 24F. You walk faster in the winter, so a 10 minute walk in that temp. is an inconvenience, not a
torture. Hell, when I was that age I walked to school in -40, which is the same in F and C. That was frickin cold.
Exactly - I walked through Inverness in -23 weather. That was pretty cold even for a hardy Pisky like myself. -6 is cold but not that cold. In
my opinion the driver should not have been fired. If the kids want to act the arsehole, lets see them do it while they're walking home.
Well, we can see that people who deny ignorance aren't running the world , or that school distrcit anyway.
How coud they fire this guy? If it were 6 yr olds, well maybe. Wanna bet at least one parent of those kids is a lawyer or someone who think too
highly of themselves?
the driver did make the best decision in terms of his options at the time...he could have let the kids on the bus if he had a taser or stun gun
available....just a thought though: how much different would the tone of this thread be if those kids were picked up by someone and raped and killed
and thrown in a ditch?
