7 year old Boy dragged off bus in Memphis video. Disgusting abuse of a child. Don't defend this!

There is no excuse for such violence against a child. I was upset because on other posts...people here defended this.

"A 7-year-old boy from Memphis allegedly suffered a concussion after he was dragged off a school bus by his feet in an incident captured on video.

The boy, a student at Robert R. Church Elementary School, was forcibly removed from school bus by an unidentified male employee on April 12, FOX13 reported. Shortly before the video was recorded, the employee was allegedly breaking up a fight.

However, the boy’s mother, Kimberly Hardin, claimed her son was not involved in the incident.

Hardin first saw the video after the parent of another child at the school sent her the footage. She said the school district didn’t inform her about what happened until days after the incident occurred.

As a result of the school bus incident, the boy allegedly suffered a concussion and bruises, his mother said, adding that the 7-year-old was afraid to return to school as well.

A representative for Shelby County Schools told Fox News in a statement that the employee has been removed from his position, pending an investigation"

Update grabbed the wrong pic and in fixing this saw that this is not the first or last incident sadly so I am posting my search...the Pic of the kids being dragged off the bus including down the steps is in there along with dozens of other instances...very sad

Morning Joe talking about a Washington Post poll that claims the GOP has regained three points

in a 'who should control congress poll'. This is pitting generic candidates against known GOP candidates of course, but one of the reasons given is that there is 'division' in the Democratic Party because the 16 election has not been resolved, we have no clear leader and there is a failure to move on to younger candidates. I don't agree about Congress in 18. I think we have a great shot...a blue wave, but we need a younger candidate in 20 than in 16, and we need one not tainted by the disastrous election of 16. Neither Sanders, Clinton nor O'Malley should run in 20. We need to unite as a party behind younger candidates and move into the future leaving the divisions of 16 behind or the GOP will destroy us.

Regardless of the Hillary situation, bashing Comey only helps Trump and the Republicans.

Comey is a witness to obstruction. Lets keep our eye on the ball and not discredit him as a witness...buy the book nothing could make Trump and the GOP hellions more angry. Already on TV...this is being discussed. Trump is terrified of Comey...look at his tweets...we are too smart to fall for this shit.

House Republicans to vote on a balanced budget amendment...unlikely to get out of Senate

The House vote can't immediately cut social security or any entitlement. It needs 2/3 vote (which it may not get) in the house and the Senate. It also must be ratified by 3/4 of the states. It won't even get out of the Senate.

"WASHINGTON – The Republican-led House of Representatives will vote this week on a balanced budget amendment to the Constitution, an effort to quell anger from conservative activists who say Congress presides over a ballooning debt and out-of-control spending.

Lawmakers return to Washington after a two-week recess, during which many fielded complaints from constituents unhappy with the $1.3 trillion spending bill Congress passed last month. President Trump grudgingly signed the measure but vowed never to support such a massive spending bill again.

"I had people calling me up saying, ‘I’m done, I quit, I’m not voting. I’m totally fed up,’ ” said Rep. Dave Brat, R-Va. Brat and dozens of other conservatives voted against the legislation and railed against GOP lawmakers who supported it.

House conservatives said voting on a balanced budget amendment could calm some of the ire, though the measure is not popular with everyone on the right, and it's unlikely to pass the Senate."
