    Driver says he did all he could during Florida school bus beating


    "The windmilling fists and stomping feet rain down blows on the 13-year-old boy.Trapped on the floor between the bus seats, he cries out as he receives fierce punch after vicious kick from the three bigger, older youths.
    As the relentless assault unfolds, the driver of the Florida school bus alerts the dispatcher, pleading for aid.
    But he doesn't physically step in to help."

    I say the guy did the right thing. If he intervened, the Sha'Niaqua's and Ni'Faar's would have accused him of attacking their "babies". Cop in the video is a dick for implying he should have done something. He's 64 and those are a bunch 15 year old savages.

    A 64 year old man against 3 ghetto punks? He did the right thing. If he would have tried to stop it, he would of been beaten too. Maybe to death. Take the gun away from the cop. put him on that bus. He wouldn't have done anything either.

    They want to press charges against the bus driver?:facepalm:

    That old man would have likely gotten the same beating the white kid got if he tried to intervene and after it was over I don't know what they expected him to do. He's a bus driver...they are barely good at driving the fucking bus let alone dealing with the aftermath of traumatic events.

    According to the article they have a school policy for this situation.

    According to Pinellas school bus driver policy the driver's first duty is to call dispatch, and only has to step in if they think it's safe. They're not required to intervene.

    Well that makes sense. Only intervene when it's totally not necessary. If it's safe, why would you intervene?

    He is right. What in the world can a 64 year old bus driver do in that situation except pull out a machine gun and start spraying it?

    I love how "youths" always go after easy targets. You never hear about "youths" picking fights with longshoremen.

    I wouldn't have intervened. I'm not gonna have a pack of Tryavons going all chimp on me.

    However if they attack me I'd shoot as many as I could.

    he's not just a bus driver; he's responsible for the safety of the kids on his bus. three kids stomping a fourth kid on the ground requires intervention

    If he would have done one thing to those woolly-headed savages, his ass would be all over the news. Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton would be rallying for his immediate firing, formal apologies, and all sorts of nonsense. The Black Panthers would put out a bounty on him, and Spike Lee would tweet his home address and phone number.

    A group of lovely people gonna nig, and we have to stand by and idly watch.
