UPDATE: Let Karen the Bus Driver Retire

Written By: William F. B. O'Reilly - Jun• 21•12

UPDATE: THE GOAL OF THIS CAMPAIGN WAS TO RAISE $5,000 OVER A 30 DAY PERIOD.  AS OF 5;45 PM (EST) — IN FEWER THAN 24 HOURS — MORE THAN $332,000 HAS COME IN. 

This is a heartbreaking video that is becoming a heartwarming story. The video is of a Rochester’s area bus monitor being verbally abused by the children on her bus. Everyone one of them should be strung up by his ears and forced to clean toilets at a stadium this summer. (Years from now, these kids will deeply regret what they did the day this was filmed.)  

But here’s the good part.  A fund was set up to “give Karen the bus monitor a vacation.” It already has reached $133,000. It is quickly becoming, I would think, a let’s-let-Karen-the-bus-monitor-retire-and-never-have-to-deal-with-the-kids-on-the-bus-again fund. 

Here is a link to donate. Even the smallest donation will make you feel better about your day.  Promise. Karen’s retirement must be how this story ends.

    Bill, I am afraid you’re wrong…the kids will NOT regret this years from now…there is a generation being raised of insensitive, clueless, self absorbed punks. P-U-N-K-S…punks!The apocalypse is coming…and these kids are at the forefront…of course they have no idea they are…they’re too busy texting their friend… walking in the mall …who is next to them!…oh…and the parents…??? Please…clueless…

      Judging from my kids, their friends, and my nieces and nephews, I’m happy to say I wholeheartedly disagree. There are a lot of wonderful kids out there–probably including a number of children on that bus who weren’t old enough or big enough to have the courage to step in.

    I can’t even watch this thing. It really disturbs me. But I also see it as a real challenge. I want to make sure that my kids (now I’ve got two–double pressure) are the kind that will defend this woman and call these kids out for being the vile version of adults they think they are portraying to be cool.
