Girl with disabilities raped on school bus; driver ignored previous abuse

Girl with disabilities raped on school bus; driver ignored previous abuse

A Georgia middle-school girl with special needs was allegedly sexually abused over a period of 2 weeks by other students on her bus, ultimately ending with her being raped. Her family’s lawsuit alleges the bus driver willfully ignored the students’ misconduct, and chose not to intervene until after the rape. The girl’s mother sued her daughter’s school district in Georgia federal court Tuesday.

Bus only had 3 or 4 seat rows, and these had audio/visual monitoring equipment recording what took place on the bus. The driver HAD to be aware of the sexual assaults taking place against the girl for the 2 weeks. He told his supervisor on the last day that he "saw something" - but he didn't stop it. Piece of shit human. School is refusing to provide the girl's parents and lawyers with the actual video of the rape.

What. the. fuck? So she was assaulted and raped by other special needs kids. The driver was probably too afraid to do anything bc this day and age you're damned if you do and damned if you don't.

To everyone saying that the Driver should have done something, I agree. But one thing that everyone needs to consider is how shackled public school districts are in America. I remember being told with my mother by the Principal that my school could do nothing for me unless I committed a crime. Shortly after, I was diagnosed with depression. Just imagine what horrible things could have happened if I had taken that advice to get the help I needed. Public Schools, and by extension their districts, have extremely limited options when it comes to disciplining children. They are not even allowed to give them 0 score for no work turned in anymore; the lowest grade they can achieve is a 50, or a 70 if they turn in a sheet of otherwise blank paper with their name on it. If the teachers can't even fail their students anymore, what kind of authority do you think the bus drivers have? We need to enable our schools, especially when it comes to discipline. It's not enough to make certain forms of punishment off limits, we need to ensure there are clear punishments for failing to the work or misbehaving, and we need to be able to trust these schools to carry them out.

That driver should be fired! Children look to "adults" in closed situations to be protectors.
