Bus Monitor Story Continues...
You’ve probably heard the story about Karen Klein, the bullied bus monitor who’s video has gone world wide.
And a website was set up for people to donate money to give her a vacation to help erase that awful day.
Originally, the website was just asking for $5,000…as of today it’s over $600,000 in donations.
Karen is taking the high road and doesn't want her taunters prosecuted.
Is the negative publicity about the bullies punishment enough? What would you do if it were your kid?
So far some of the kids that taunted Karen have either apologized by letter or their parents have.
One child writes: "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,".
Police in Greece, N.Y. have had to start patrolling the homes of the boys involved because they have reportedly received death threats.
Still, there’s no more info on what will actually happen, officially, to the cruel kids.
An article on the internet wonders about this video and event. They ask the question why the bus monitor, the person supposedly in charge of keeping the peace on the bus.
And I agree.
But her response, when asked why she didn’t try to discipline the children was a telling: “Why bother? What good is it going to do?”
One of the seventh grader’s dads, for instance, said the boys have suffered enough given the publicity of the video.
The dad says: “He’s a 13-year-old kid,”. “It was a stupid mistake and he’s paying for it, but I just think it’s a little out of control.”
But it got me wondering…. what would you do if you found out your kid had participated in something like this?
