By Daniel Arkin, NBC News

Six students who allegedly assaulted a Richmond, Va., middle school bus driver Tuesday have been arrested and charged, according to the Richmond Police Department.

The unidentified students face felony aggravated assault and assault by mob charges, police said. A seventh student was suspended in connection with the incident.

Richmond City school administrators said the group of students attacked a bus driver on the way to Albert Hill Middle School at approximately 7:30 a.m. Tuesday morning. The alleged assault left the 55-year-old male bus driver with serious face and head injuries, according to NBC12, a station in Richmond.

The mother of one of the “youths” speaks out here:

RICHMOND, Va. (WTVR) – Trophies and medals adorn Robin Allen’s home. Her son Lavar, 12, has won awards in basketball, baseball, for most valuable player and for best attitude.

But Wednesday night, Lavar’s mom says her son sat in a juvenile jail cell, accused of assaulting a school bus driver.

“I`m upset. I’m frustrated. I`m hurt. He`s not into no violence. He plays basketball, he goes to school, he goes to practice. He don’t get into this type of stuff,” Robin said.

Lavar Allen is one of six Albert Hill Middle School students arrested Wednesday, charged with the assault of a 55 year-old male bus driver Tuesday morning near the intersection of Idlewood and Sheppard Streets.

“He shed tears, because he don`t understand. He don`t want to mess up his basketball career,” she said.

Has he strangled his basketball coach yet? That works well towards a “basketball career”. He’s 12. 1/10 of 1% of ALL High School athletes make the pro’s.

That quote and my tagline sum up this story.

I’d love to see the tape of this one.

Best punishment: drive a school bus over them a few times.

Double negative so perhaps he's into violence like his heroes in professional bball?

Maybe he did it, maybe he didn't. Buses have cameras now so we'll know soon enough.

Holder Youth.

Obamas AG, Eric”my people” Holder’s public statements before the Senate Judiciary Committee that white Americans are NOT protected against racists attacks by federal hate crime laws, has given them the green light on move forward with these attacks.

No it’s not rhetorical.

Buses are tax paid, so are the students, the schools, the bus driver, the bus fuel etc. The tax payers have every right to view the video, and not wait for it to be edited by some school administrators or some local government bureaucrat with they’re own personal private agenda.

I don’t get it. My son is in 7th grade. The other day he and 3 of his 7-8th grade friends (ok not 6) jumped me in the yard and the fight was on. Granted, not a to the death match, but kids aren’t very good at pulling punches and such, I was tossing them all around like rag dolls. I am in 50’s they were all 5’7” - 5’11” and ranged from 120-150 pounds.

I did have to end it quick by cheating and using pressure points and using one for a shield because I was getting tired and my knees hurt. Aging sucks.

Notice how the mothers make excuses for their offspring. They will get away with this, and will go on to a life of crime.

Another thing. Since the media don’t mention race, it’s either minority on minority or minority on Oppressor-majority.

Six middle school students ...
Last (school) year, four "utes" in a suburb of Rochester NY made national news for just harassing a bus monitor.
Do ya' think Lavar and his five homies will get the same attention?

The mother of one of the alleged attackers told Richmond's CBS6 station that the incident began when students on the bus threw crayons at the bus driver. She claims that the driver became agitated and started hitting her son, which triggered the assault.

Crayons? In middle school?

Well, let me start by saying I am always armed off my property and years as a LEO has made me leery of everyone, even old ladies and handicapped. They may get me but they won’t surprise me.

Any altercation with strangers as you describe will quickly escalate in my favor.

The old style clip boards with the hole in the clip and a rubber band will shoot a pencil through a sheet rock wall or ceiling as I found out in 6th grade homeroom in the 70’s right before I went and got two licks from the assistant principal for trying it, then more at home. I didn’t do it again.

Oh, poor little victim. He doesn't think he should be punished, and all he cares about is his "basketball career." And of course the mothers never blame their precious little darlings, either. That's the whole trouble.

Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson, New Black Panthers, and all the other Black Ku Klux Klan Racists would be burning down their neighborhoods if Whitey kids beat up a Black bus driver...guarantee that

Instead of calling out the violence by the Black racist youths...the Black KKK will be looking to hand out trophies and scholarships to them

Because they may be tried in juvenile court and the tape is needed for evidence. Also the school board must review it to ascertain if any students are to be expelled from the school because of the incident.

He don’t understand because apparently no one has told him that randomly assaulting people is not a legitimate sporting activity. Maybe some time in jail pinned up against his bunk will enlighten him. Savage.

There is video, tax paid video, tax paid bus, tax paid kids educations, tax paid bus fuel ...Why do they not release it?

Because they may be tried in juvenile court and the tape is needed for evidence.

There is no tape, but digital video.

Might surprise you but the technology has existed for 30 plus years where subjects faces/ID's can easily be blurred out if needed.

Also the school board must review it to ascertain if any students are to be expelled from the school because of the incident.

What would that take, 5 minutes?

Even viewed a dozen times, what's that take? Half hour?

Where's the video?

BTW Johnny, they could make copies available to the tax payers, complete with the juveniles faces blurred out, for pennies. They are free to keep the original. No problemo.

So you understand John, government run school districts waste tens of hundreds of billions of tax dollars and obscenely over pay all their teachers and administrators with tax dollars. So this should not be a problem or issue, John.

I think you meant: "Apparently he and his government school ain’t into no literacy either." On second thought, you were right. Unless you go by inner city grammar, in which case, you are wrong. I think.
