School bus monitor bullied by students -disturbing video


An online fundraising effort to assist a Greece bus monitor verbally abused by students raised more than $70,000 in its first day.

The effort was set in motion by a video of 10 minutes of profane taunting endured on Monday by bus monitor Karen Klein.

Klein didn’t report the behavior and said she figured she had just ended the year on a bad note.

But one of the kids on the Greece Athena Middle School bus captured the incident on a cellphone camera. The video got pulled off of Facebook late Tuesday and was posted to YouTube. By early Wednesday, it had gone viral across the world.

In the video, Klein does her best to ignore the harassment.

“I was trying to just ignore them, hoping they would go away and it doesn’t work,” Klein said. “Trust me, they didn’t go away.”

The vile chorus included profanity, taunts, insults, jeers, physical ridicule and outright threats to Klein’s person and home.

2. This is just awful!

What is wrong with these kids?! Do they treat their teachers like this?

We had bullies on the school bus when I was a kid. My Dad got a phone call from the irate father of this big older kid who had been picking on me because I hit him over the head with my lunchbox. I think my Dad was amused.

These kids need to be reported, be forced to apologize and do community service and/or spend a couple of years in detention...
