the boy who took it did the uploading. Commented that lots of folks had gotten a lot of attention for youtubes, so he thought it was just a quick way to cooldom.

$449,000? That’s some nice compensation!

I still don't understand this. She is a monitor supposedly to maintain order on a bus full of offspring of thugs. she obvioously is not up to the task. What's the point of her job? It looks like another SEIU job for incompetant Democrats. So some thuggies from the hood make sport of her and donors shower her with tones of money. This society is so aimless.

She could easily hire a button man to break a few ankles, and have plenty left over.

Most of the prisoners were better behaved. However, there were exceptions to the rule, like these kids. A convict, like the bully on the bus will be boistrous and obnoxious when he has an audience of fellow convicts to entertain, but get him alone, and he turns into a sniveling baby. Many times, after an inmate had been placed in a special housing cell because of misbehavior or a fight, his mother would call the facility, trying to find out why her son had been locked up. The only way she could have found out was by one of the other inmates on the unit calling her to let her know.

And when an officer would tell an inmate he couldn't do something, or get a specific item through the package room, he'd run to a Sergeant to see if he could get the Sergeant to overrule the officer. When that didn't work, he'd try to find a Lieutenant or above to cry to. This behavior is no different than the kid who is told no by his mother, then whines to his Dad to see if he can get Dad to overrule Mom. Instant gratification was a must. Things were starting to go downhill in the prison system at the time I retired in 2003. I can't imagine what it must be like now.

“verbal abuse of all kinds are now common place in public schools, especially urban ones.”

Amen and amen. Many people have no idea.

Getting disrespected is part of her job.

Now, that's just silly.

Just image what this country will be like when these kids become adults.

These sociopathic brats will grow up to be sociopathic adults ... and will try the same garbage with an armed citizen or peace officer ...

and then many of these sociopathic things will end up dying miserably in the street, with their life-blood running out in the gutter, all the while whining that it isn't fair.

Wonder if the boy was participating in the abuse?
If so, real stupid... if its possible to trace utube uploads then he’s toast.
