What in the bloody hell is this?

That's a very odd stillshot for the video.

Jump out the back.  Bus gotta stop at a stop sign or red light sometime.

It was a tradition at my school that seniors, on their last day on the bus, jumped out the back emergency exit.

"It really makes you wonder," Rodgers said, "even if they're doing background checks on them, do they do them every six months? Or every year? What do we really know about these people that we entrust our children with background checks?"

This is why I just can not give a shiat about most people's opinions on general policy. Lady, mandating biannual background checks for substitute bus drivers, with what I assume are full psych evals since you think it will relate to this incident, isn't gonna stop crazy from happening when you least expect it. It's just going to make you biatch about how high your property taxes are.

Background checks check for arrests and convictions. It's not like signing up for the secret service where they interview everyone you've ever had contact with.

The teachers are bad enough, now we have to deal with bus drivers going after students?  Am I going to have to buy my kids a set of these, not for reasons of prudishness, but just to keep adults out until the kids get black belts*?

So here's a lesson for all you helicopter moms.  It isn't the single guy in the park that is going to snatch, fark, or kill your little snowflake.  It the person she trusts and knows.  The bus driver, the teacher, the family friend, the cousin.

Now if can you please stop looking at the rest of us like we're all kiddie diddlers that would be great.

I've got a white friend with a black daughter who is around 3 years old. He's had idiots freak out on him before.

Oh Christ, I thought I was the only one.  I'm a white guy who's been dating a black girl for years that has a teenage daughter.  It's such that she can't leave us alone in public.  I've nearly had the cops called on me twice and have been shadowed by security more times than I can count.  It's bullshiat.

Unfortunately, being white and male nobody really gives a rat's ass.  Guess I'm just taking one for the team.

This is just a weird story. She kidnaps one sister in front of their mother and the girl wasn't even the only kid on the bus and the driver just took off going way off route. And then she was coherent enough to lie, albeit not well. Just bizarre.

Kind of sounds like someone went off their meds.

Have you ever *BEEN* on a school bus?

And I bet the real truth is the child was probably staying on the bus to go to a friends' house. But derpers gotta derp.

On sort of a related note, I find it odd in this country that we keep pushing for people to get access to mental health treatment and then want to prevent people who actually use that help from holding any level of responsibility.

If we're going to stigmatize those who seek mental health treatment why bother to provide it at all? We'd save time and money by just stigmatizing the mentally ill.

Marijuana and Scotch can be considered meds.  For school bus drivers they should be standard ration.

Sounds to me like the bus driver is simply not the sharpest crayon in the matchbox, and the girl probably did ask her to stay on the bus.  Given the girl's mom's attitude, I can see why.  Anyway, so the bus driver suddenly thinks she's in trouble, and starts the verbal diarrhea.  No one needs to go to jail over this story, although maybe authorities should investigate why the girl was so intent on avoiding her home.

Even though she's doing the Angry Black Woman look, with a healthy dose of Frowning on These Shenanigans and a sprinkle of This is an Outrage, mom is kind of hot. Love that cafe au lait, hair relaxer, suburban housewife look.

To protect her job. Think about it. Most bus drivers aren't very educated. Most of them would gladly let a child get off at a different bus stop as long as they say their parents said they could. So while the driver may have lied, I can guarantee that child wanted to get off at a different location.

Ok, so the girl wanted to stay on the bus. Her older sister went into the house, saying the bus driver wanted to talk to the mom. When mom went outside, the bus was gone. You think the girl convinced the driver to leave, too?

You're just making random shiat up, dude.

Was it a kidnapping? The Sheriff's office decided initially -- no, it's a school system matter.

Not planning on re-reading the article, but as I understood it, the bus driver was off her route when caught with other children in the bus as well.

What if someone paid her to deliver a bus load of 12 year old girls to them for sex slaves?

The string of lies and the off the route thing meant she was doing *something* wrong. Wrong enough to be worried when a cop came up.

Agreed, being off route is another thing that makes no sense and sets off alarm bells. Did the girl talk the driver into that, too?

You can get some similar but legal sprays for dogs or "bears" at army surplus stores or wherever. It may still be illegal to use on a person but you can buy them legally. If you're in a position that you need to use it, I doubt you're going to worry about wether you are breaking the law or not when the time comes.

That's what I thought..as I understood it, the girl said that the bus driver asked her to stay on the bus to write down the stops for the substitute bus driver that would be driving the route at some point, then changed her story to say that she was the substitute and just confused...

I must have missed something, but I didn't see anything that indicated that the kid had any desire to remain on the bus, the driver asked her to and she agreed.

/blaming the 'victim'? is this really happening here??

Thankfully, it only seems like two people were blaming the victim, and I don't think either of them read the article, or maybe they didn't comprehend the whole story. Trying to give them some shadow of a doubt because I hate to think that they really believe what they wrote here.

I don't always voice the skepticism I have for some of these stories where a teen goes missing and turns up saying something awful happened without any proof. I am not so naive to think that people tell the truth all of the time. In this case, at least with the articles I have read about it, there is nothing to indicate that the girl was in any way at fault, other than that she didn't have the instinct to RUN when the driver asked her to stay on board.

Man, that is one of the toughest things, for me as a parent. Trying to teach your kid to respect other people and situations (shut up and stop talking in class), but to know when to say Hell No to authority figures (a possibly unhinged bus driver lets your sister off but asks you to stay without telling your mom). People manage to come up with weird enough shiat that today, when my kid overs off the bus today, I'll tell him that just in the case his bus driver goes off the rails and takes them off route, make sure that one of them calls a parent or 911 (depending on the level of weirdness). Then he'll tell me stop reading the news, and don't worry, he's not that stupid. :)

Replying to this one because my phone won't let me cut out the older stuff.

Yeah, it is a tough call. You can't protect them all of the time, but when it matters, you want them to have the realization that certain situations are just not okay to be in. I called it the spidey sense with my older kids, if you feel that strange feeling in your gut that something might not be right, get out of the situation. Better to walk away or "escape" than end up caught in something way over your head.

It is a fact of life that kids don't always have the best judgement. They can't really be blamed for not making perfect decisions because it just doesn't occur to them that someone they have known for a long time could do something so awfully bizarre. Just have to hope that if your kid is faced with something out of the oridinary, they will have the ability to make the right decision.

Heck, even with adults, have you ever seen those videos of people faced with a bad situation? Like where there is smoke coming under the door, all but one person in the room is in on it, knows there is no fire, so are just ignoring the smoke. The one test subject gets really nervous, but seeing that no one else is panicking, decides it must not be a big deal. People have died in fires because they didn't believe the danger was dire and others weren't panicking, so hey, let's just finish our lunch. It is crazy, I guess our fight or flight instincts have been dulled or lulled?
