I didn't see this posted anywhere else yet. It's been making its rounds on the Internet. http://www.cnn.com/2....html?hpt=hp_c2

Also someone over on Reddit decided she needed a vacation and started a donation page with a goal of $5,000. Currently its up to almost $210,000 and counting. The page will be up until July 20, for any of those that wish to donate. Hopefully she can retire with whatever is given to her, although I would guess she will probably donate it. Amazing how cruel the kids were to her in the video that was taken, although apparently over on 4chan their names, numbers and addresses were found. I'm sure they are probably getting a dose of their own medicine now. Kind of amazing though how many people have rallied to support her. Slight amount of faith in humanity restored, despite the horrible children.

Their parents must be so proud.

I'm 100% shocked that books still exist in today's day and age. I thought they'd be out by now. They make up like 1% of today's entertainment and unless you're 60 or older, stray away from books and start emersing yourself with real entertainment.

Lol, the kids will face disciplinary action. My parents would've beat my ass so hard if I pulled that shit, I'd have to tell people I fell down the meat grinder.

I've heard about this, and based on the comments I've heard about it, I never want to see it. I hope the kids face disciplinary action.

Same.

The power of Reddit is quite amazing. They started a drive to send her on a nice vacation. The goal was $5,000. The drive is now up to.. well, a lot more than that.

I'm sure at least one or two quack parents will try and defend their kids and put them blame on everyone BUT their child.

It's the bus monitor's fault for offending their precious children. She was the one who caused them to act out.

That woman has the patience of a saint. If I were her, they would have had to change the name from "school bus" to "meat wagon." It would have been a massacre.

Some boys demanded to know her address, saying they want to come to her house to perform sexual acts and steal from her. Another says, "you're so fat."
One comment from a boy aboard the bus is especially painful. He tells her that she does not have family because "they all killed themselves because they didn't want to be near you."
-----------------------------------------------------

Really, that's the best these punks can come up with. This also stuck out to me as being pretty sad.

"Let's give Karen a vacation of a lifetime. Let's show her the power of the internets and how kind and generous people can be," the fundraiser's organizer, identified as Max S., said on the indiegogo.com website. He notes that she earns about $15,000 a year as a bus monitor.

Same for me. But even worse, I'd feel like shit to this day for doing something like that. How can kids not have ANY conscious whatsoever?

Fat and fat ass was said over and over... I wonder how much of that is influenced by today's out of touch and disgusting politicians and elitists in the media and elsewhere.
I guess every administration and gen has to have a war on something. Gotta love the "WAR ON FAT PEOPLE". I have seen countless commercials that are basically showing fat people and saying how gross it is and pretty skinny people are the way to be or you suck. One local one last night showed two pretty people on the beach and then morphed them into fat "ugly" people and then it went back to... basically..or is this better and morphed back to the rail thin models the pretty people. Another was along the lines of imagine our stadium filled with fat kids not a pretty image type of commercial. The list goes on and on.

War on ugly fat people culture gotta love it :roll:.

I don't think it is sad that she makes 15k a year watching a bus full of kids. It's a easy job, or suppose to be. Which 15k is pretty good pay.

I think it is sad that she is required to work at all. At this age, she should be relaxing at home with family and enjoying her retirement.

I don't think making fun of people who are fat is a recent phenomenon, nor does it have anything to do with politicians or elitists.

Calls this what you may, but I would say that Blacks actually benefited from the slavery. Comparing the current lives of many African Americans to Africans, one can see that the former live in much better conditions with greater freedoms and opportunities.

Man, these kids. If I had acted out this poorly as a kid, I'm sure the living hell my father would have put me through would have been intense.

I agree to a certain extent. But anyway that influence subject I will reserve further comment for another time and place.

I just heard that the woman's son committed suicide like ten tears ago and many of the ugly comments were about suicide. Sad stuff.

I watched this earlier, the total lack of empathy in those kids is disturbing. If something isn't done I have no doubt they'll grow up to be psychopaths.

someone should.

the problem here is that if she wouldve touched them, their idiot parents wouldve sued the shit out of the school district.

I doubt the "punishment" that these kids will likely receive will be anywhere near adequate.

IIRC the gents at 4chan dug up all their info and posted them soon after the video was discovered.

That being said, my grandmother woulda beat the stupid out of those brats.

I like how during this report, at the bottom where other news is shown it talks about 66 people being killed in Syria.

Sort of puts things into perspective. I feel bad for the woman sure, but it's being made out to be a bigger deal than it is.

Woman being made fun of by kids > People dying.

you are a pillar of the video game/gaming community. 

 

 

Thanks you are truly a pillar of the community!

most kids dont seem to have souls these days. its sick shit hell growing up i was what youd label a thug but even i would never have dreamed of saying shit like that to an adult. you never talk back to adults and if you did you knew what was waiting for you when you got home. and considering my folks were divorced i had seconds waiting for me over the weekend.

they just dont give a shit about shit and their lazy parents are just as bad. i doubt many of those kids parents will do anything to their kids and i dont see the school doing much about it either.
