Bus Monitor Bullied Video - *Disturbing*
To be honest with you, I could only watch the first minute of this video. I was shocked at how brutal these kids were being to, what seemed to be, a quiet old lady minding her own business. Now I'm not advocating child abuse but I think those kids could benefit from a meeting with my dads belt or my moms wooden spoon. This is an example of a generation of kids whose teachers can't fail them, coaches can't sit them and parents can't discipline them. No reprocussions for anything they do for fear of hurting their feelings. And then look what happens. I'm sure we'll see them on a future version of Jersey Shore.
There is a nice side to the story though. When people watched this video and became outraged, they came out in droves to support the 68-year-old bus monitor from Rochester, NY. Karen is a widow, hearing impaired, and a grandmother of eight. She makes $15,000 a year as a bus monitor. A vacation fund for Karen has been set up at http://www.indiegogo.com/loveforkarenhklein?c=home. Max Sidorov started www.indiegogo.com/loveforkarenhklein to raise money for Karen Klein ... the amount was up to $429,050 as of 12:27AM this morning. Awesome.
