Disturbing Viral Video Shows Middle Schoolers Abusing & Threatening Bus Monitor
http://www.theblaze.com/stories/disturbing-viral-video-shows-teens-abusing-bus-monitor/ ^

Posted on 06/20/2012 4:16:11 PM PDT by chessplayer

Prepare to see a disturbing video of young people at their worst. This clip of middle schoolers allegedly abusing a bus monitor is so disgusting, so bothersome that it will leave many wondering what has gone awry in our society. Of course, it is merely one of the many tragic, anecdotal instances of human cruelty that we so often see today. The unbelievable clip is painful to watch, as it shows alleged students from Greece Athena Middle School in Rochester, New York (my hometown) take their abuse to horrific levels.

The woman purportedly shown in the video, Karen Huff Klein, 68, is victimized incessantly, as students spew insults and obscenities at her. Throughout the clip, the children can be heard in the background calling her “fat,” threatening her and making fun of her hairstyle, among other sentiments. Astonishingly, the abuse continues for more than 10 minutes.

Of course, this description is mild when compared to hearing the actual words used in the clip. As can be viewed and heard above, the children told Klein that she looks like a troll and that she should “shut the f**k up” when she tried to defend herself.

Here‘s a selection of some of the other grotesque comments that were thrown Klein’s way in the first minute of the clip:

“Fat ass.”

“Oh my God, you’re so fat.”

“You take up like the whole entire seat.”

“Put those glasses back on. I can’t stand looking at your face.”

When the woman tells the kids that she is crying (presumably as a result of their attacks) they refuse to relent. In fact, one kid can be heard saying that she’s shedding tears because “she probably misses her box of Twinkies.” Here’s more:

“You have refluxes of an elephant,” another child can be heard saying.

“She‘s going to pick out which kid she’s going to rape next,” another quipped.

“She’s going to die of diabetes, because she’s so damn fat,” said another.

At moments, the youths even poked and attempted to touch the woman, as she sat, for the most part quietly, and allowed their abuse to continue.

“If I stabbed you in the stomach, my knife would go through you like butter because it’s all f**king water,” another kid said.

Among the comment that hurt the most, Klein told WHAM-TV that one child’s statement that she is so ugly that her “kids should kill themselves” was particularly hurtful. Her son committed suicide 10 years ago.

America's future. I have never believed the crap being spewed about how "good, innocent, and honest" children are. The cruelty and depravity children are capable of can put the cruelty adults do to shame.

I feel certain that, were the parents of these children confronted with this, they would simply deny it and defend the conduct of their children. It makes you wonder if civility and good manners are simply artifacts of the past.

Of course, they’ll defend their “precious babies”.

If one of these kids was mine, I’d “suspend” them from school myself, and sentence them to a week of digging ditches in the yard and filling them back in, a la Cool Hand Luke. See how smart they are after that.

This is one of the most disgusting things I have ever seen.

Judging by their speech, the kids were middle-class to upper middle class suburban white kids.

I’d say their parents should go ballistic on them, but these kids learned that behavior somewhere, and they probably learned it with mommy and daddy, so I doubt that their parents will do anything.

Their response will be, “how can you say that about my baby?” Sickening.

We have always known the “Lord of the Flies” truth of human nature and the need of civilizing since the Ancient Greeks. To teach Virtue was the only reason for education stated Plato and Aristotle. Without Virtue there can be no civilization—and no freedom.

Now, the Cultural Marxists and Socialists like John Dewey intentionally targeted children and “education”-—to destroy Virtue (God) (John Dewey and the Decline of American Education: How the Patron Saint of Schools has Corrupted Teaching and Learning” by Henry T. Edmondson III.

Dewey-—whose ideology was idolized and used in Soviet Russia—designed a system to throw US education upside down-—to destroy knowledge and history and the concept of God. We were Founded with the ideology that our Natural Rights came from God.

As Ben Franklin stated—”History teaches “morality, by descanting and making continual observations on the causes of the rise or fall of any man’s character, fortune, power, etc. mentioned in history; the advantages of temperance, order, frugality, industry, perseverance, etc. etc.”

When the Marxists yelled-—”Hey Ho! Western Civ has got to Go!” they meant Virtue and Morality that was noted since the Ancient Greeks and all the Classics-—because unlike postmodern literature—it taught moral lessons as believed by the Founders to be necessary for a free Republic.

Sex Education (and teaching that “feelings trump reason”) is the easiest way to destroy morality in children. That is their MO-—along with destroying the Canon of Classical Literature and replacing it with garbage-—to fill the children with cr8p ideas and make them “useful idiots’ such as the above non-thinking children-—unable to know Good and Evil-—because they are taught that whatever they do is good (self-esteem) if they feel good doing it. Of course, they “feel” powerful while doing this.

Most likely, these kids have been in the care of strangers since they were 6 weeks old. I’d be willing to bet that mommy and daddy have been just too busy with their careers to spend any time with them and teach them how to behave in a civilized society.

The daily routine of a lot of children today: A parent drops them off at the before-care facility early in the morning. After the the school day, they go to after-care, where they are not picked up until around 6P. They see the parents for how long each day?

Dollars to donuts theses are wealthy kids. There’s a private school near where I work with many children of the wealthy. A lot of them are intolerable and incredibly foul mouthed and nasty. Their parents don’t seem to give a damn. Two of the kids are easily identifiable on this video. They should be immediately expelled and thrown out ion the street. Betcha they’re not.

You’re right; Americans are doing voluntarily what the Khmer Rouge had to do at gunpoint: take children from their parents to be raised by “the organization”.

In this economy this has been replaced with foregoing children altogether; each successive grade in my children’s schools have more foreign children in them. As a traditional person, I prefer that to kids like those in the video (who seem to lack father figures).

Epigenetics.. Imprison kids hours a day for twelve years with minimum supervision and they change. Kids have always been cruel, but something genetically changed. IMHO Maybe temporarily, maybe not.

That (almost) sounds like the ‘insults’ kids used to throw at each other back in the 50’s/60’s of course, these have been updated to cover today.

We would never have dared speak to an adult like that, much less one that was in control or had some sort of ‘power’.

As James M. Barrie observed in the book version of Peter Pan, children are "innocent and heartless".

(It takes a moment's reflection to realize what heartless innocence actually looks like if one has a sentimental view of innocence.)

Fear. Perhaps she was afraid they would kill her. She’s almost 70, and middle schoolers can be pretty big and strong. This group could have very well went off the cliff and killed her if she fought back. And she wasn’t getting any help from the bus driver or the rest of the “innocent little darlings” on the bus. She was on her own.

This is likely the saddest, most disgusting, and disturbing videos I have ever seen (excluding the jihads antics).
If I ever caught my kids engaging in this abusive behavior, they would have suffered far more than a day or a month of digging ditches.
I understand that kids are often cruel, and that they regret that later in life. But, I can say with certainty that this would never have happened in the America where I grew up.
On the good side, for me anyway, I can say with equal certainty, that my kids, at that age, would never have engaged in such despicable behavior. In fact, it would have repulsed them.
I feel so sorry for that lady.

I wouldn’t be surprised if some nanny is “bringing up” these kids. For one thing, the kids seemed to have an abusive attitude towards this lady not just for personal reasons, but because they regarded her as hired help whom they had some right to abuse.

I once lived behind a very expensive private school in Manhattan, attended mainly by the kids of wealthy media people, attorneys, etc., and they were so foul-mouthed and abusive in the playground that they made the gutter punks in Harlem look good. At least there was some excuse, their miserable environment, for the bad behavior of the latter group.

Having had children go through public schools, when the schools set on a mission to change social norms, they go overboard in trying to turn kids against what they don’t like. It was not enough to reject smoking, the kids had to hate on smokers as demon people with an evil character flaw who were trying to kill them with second hand smoke.

Since these kids’ comments were targeting the woman’s fat body and telling her she’ll die of diabetes...guess what. This is the lastest hate fest against fat and fat people. Fat children never have it easy with their peers at this age, but I bet they are really suffering now.

The predominently white middle class school teachers really pour it on when they are on a self righteous health or hate mission and incorporate lessons into every subject.

They encourage the children to nag and harass their parents about fat issues they learn in school which gives them the permission to actually disrespect adults if they are not thin or if they don’t serve food as directed. I think this is the product of Moochelle’s latest nanny state brain washing mission.

It’s no excuse for these kids acting like feral animals, but it is important to see the connection because liberals are into brain washing children to ‘bring change’ these days.

Am I the only one who noticed that the “bus monitor” is less than worthless at her “job”, and by her inaction is not just condoning bad behavior, but is actively putting children at risk?

Everyone commenting on the depravity of the kids on this bus, might want to think about the depravity of the
adult(s) who allowed it to happen.

The “poor old lady” bus monitor is supposedly paid to keep the school kids in line, while on the bus.

EPIC FAIL.

Why even pay to have have her on the bus if she can’t do the job?

Because I watched the video and saw an adult refusing to do her job.
My solution would be to fire her, and ban those kids from ever riding a public school bus.
Hire someone who is actually capable of being a “bus monitor”.

Problem solved.

Like Thomas Sowell sometimes does, I have some random thoughts:

The bus monitor should SUE the school district, and the principal and superintendent PERSONLLY! It's time teachers, principals, and superintendents had their own personal bank accounts and homes threatened.

If children are treated like prisoners we should not be surprised to see prison social pathology.

Schools look like prisons.

School transport looks like prison work gang buses.

In many ways, schools treat children, ( whose only crime was being born) like prisoners. Every First Amendment Right is trashed. There are lockdowns and solitary confinement rooms, drug sniffing dogs, and random searchers. They are ordered by government functionaries when to speak, publish, rest, eat, exercise, and must have permission to use the restroom. School yards look like prison exercise yards. And...They are fed none stop godlessness.

For the child there is no escape. They are abandoned by their parents to these prisons.

Finally, ....If adults were subjected to the environment seen in this video, they would win millions......So?....Why would we think this a normal experience for children, or that somehow it would make them stronger?

Apprently you missed thios when I posteed it to you several hours ago: If only there was some retired person who take these "little angels" under her wing and teach them how to respect adults. Perhaps home school them for several years to improve their disposition.

Oh wait that's right it is the job of the PARENTS to teach them these things.

and this exchange with another member:If these kids were taught good manners and decorum in school by their lazy good for nothing parents, they might amount to something. Instead, they’re being groomed to become part of the permanent underclass in these “laboratories of rudeness” we call public schools.

Fixed it for you. Let's keep in mind whose responsibility those little B@$T@RDS are.

Huh.

Well, two things then. I left a 5% chance they weren’t black, but much more importantly, since they aren’t black there is a much greater chance that justice will be dispensed.

Whites are held to a much higher standard than blacks, and that’s because, at their core, Liberals think blacks are nothing more than animals.

Placing a senior citizen as "bus monitor" on this bus indicates this student population has a history of abusive nonconformist behavior requiring adult supervision.

Limiting any recourse this 'bus monitor' is permitted to enforce (to avoid any appearance of child abuse) leads to predictable consequences when dealing with a population hell bent on pushing boundaries. Think UN peacekeepers . . .target practice.

I had a kid at my house one time and he insulted me - twice. I put his nasty butt in the car and drove him directly home. Wow. What a nasty piece of work that kid was. He was one shocked kid when I escorted him to the door and told his mom why he was home so early.

So, are you saying that because she is obviously incompetent in doing her “job”, she is to be considered a “victim”?

Step away from whatever pipe you are smoking.

The “victims” here are the children on the bus, being taught by an ineffectual adult that rules and laws don't matter at all.

Did you see any indication at all of the woman making even a cursory attempt to controll or stop the egregious behavior of those kids attacking her?

Did it ever even cross your mind that if she wont even defend herself, chances are high she did not ever once defend any of the other children on that bus?

She was paid to be on that bus as “monitor”.

Let's all gather together to celebrate her incompetence!
