This dude needs to have R.Kelly produce a remix for him called “When A Brother’s Fed Up.” He might want to hire his lawyer too!
Witnesses say a school bus driver grabbed a middle school student by his neck and threw him against the window after hearing the student repeatedly use the ‘n-word,’ despite having asked him to stop.
Terris Devon Richard, 35, of Charlotte South Carolina was charged with third-degree assault and battery to the 15-year-old boy who said the driver made additional threats against him and his father’s life.
Richard, who is black, tells WCSC-TV that he knows what he did was wrong but was upset after reporting the student’s language weeks earlier, and nothing being done about it.
The boy who is white said there had been an ‘ongoing incident’ between the driver and him, according to the police report.
Reached on the phone by CBS Charlotte, Richard declined comment saying, ‘I don’t want to talk about it … I haven’t been to court yet. I’m hanging up now.’
A deputy responding to the school on October 27th found one of two boys crying on a school bus parked outside with a red neck and stretched-out t-shirt.
A witnesses told the deputy that the driver ‘slammed on brakes’ and warned he’d ‘shoot up [the boy's] house and kill his daddy’ as well as ‘drag the victim to school by his neck until he breaks his windpipe.’
The brother of the boy, according to the police report, said his brother had greeted a friend saying, ‘what up, my [N-word]?’ despite being asked not to by the driver.
His brother asked the driver to explain to him why he took offense to him saying the word.
According to the report, the bus driver did not drop the boy at his home but took him and his brother back to their school.
Witnesses said that a school employee was also on the bus at the time of the alleged assault.
Commenting Tuesday, the school’s principal, Scott Matthews told WCBD-TV, ‘It’s an unfortunate incident, it’s an incident that I don’t think anybody likes to happen,’ he said.
‘That’s why we need to take the time and make sure that we accurately investigate so that we… make sure that we get this right.’
The report said charges were brought after deputies reviewed a bus surveillance video.
The driver has since been fired by the school.
Would we be remiss to point out that South Carolina continues to be one of the most NOTORIOUSLY racist locales in this great nation of ours. Clearly Terris just reached his tipping point.
On the real though, it’s never cool to put your hands on another person, even if a soft as newborn poo slur spitting baby racist.
