Young Boy Kicked Off School Bus By Driver Even Though He Was Bullied By Older Students And Begged To Stay On
The boy could be overheard requesting the driver to let him out at his home rather than the bus stop. However, the driver refuses and yells at the adolescent to get the bus off.
A video clip of an Oklahoma boy bullied and kicked off his school bus has gone viral along with the local police division launching an investigation into the situation. Reports say that the clip had been filmed by an individual student on the bus and reveals a kid crying and begging the driver to let him remain on the bus.
The boy can also be observed requesting the driver to let him out at his home rather than the bus stop. On the other hand, the driver refuses and yells at the adolescent to get off the bus as the terrified boy continues crying.
The video clip shows that as the boy gets off the bus, an older boy waiting for him at the stop immediately jumps at him and attacks him.
The incident allegedly happened at the Four Corners Church of God bus stop last week, the bus was from the Locust Grove Public Schools, based on News On 6 reports. Even though the incident happened last week, police officers were alarmed about it on Thursday.
The boy can be heard: “You’re gonna kill and try to punch me,” before he is yelled to get down at the bus stop.
Major Rod Howell of the Mayes County Sheriff’s Office, while talking to KFSM, said: “The video is alarming itself and obviously, it’s enough to start an investigation.” The official added that authorities are also looking over additional videos taken from another cell phone and two cameras that were on the bus at the time of the incident.
“Not just visual but audio,” Howell added. “That could possibly give us something of evidentiary value but it’s too early to tell.”
Meanwhile, the school district released a statement saying that they had launched their own internal investigation concerning the incident.
“Locust Grove Public Schools had an incident take place January 17th on one of our school buses involving two students,” the district said in a statement on Thursday. “The incident was turned over to law enforcement and the Mayes County Sheriff’s Office is conducting a complete investigation. The students’ and bus driver’s actions have been addressed internally.”
