Teenagers Punch Boy In The Face While Bus Driver Does Nothing
Maybe the bus driver wasn’t trying to get hurt…..it’s not like he’s getting rich off driving buses.
According to The NY Daily News
Three Pennsylvania teenagers could face charges after cops caught wind of a video posted to Facebook showing a 17-year-old boy getting punched in the face during a bus ride home from school, authorities said.
The bus driver, who never stopped after the attack or reported the incident to school officials, could also be charged, police said.
The victim, Dylan Fonner, was sitting with a friend on the bus as three 16-year-olds, two boys and one girl — the only other passengers — started to tease the pair after they left the Delaware County Alternative High School on Oct. 9, WPIV-TV reported.
One of the teens began recording the bullying with a cellphone before another student suddenly walked into the frame and punched Fonner in the face.
The footage shows blood pouring from a wound on Fonner’s lip before the teen stood up from his seat and asked the driver to stop — but the driver refused.
His mother, Jackee Fonner, said she learned about the attack after the shocking clip was posted to the social media site.
“When I saw the video, I was upset and furious at the same time,” the fuming mother told NBC 10 News.
The mother said that she and the parents of her son’s friend — who was also allegedly attacked during the spat — are demanding criminal charges against the teens involved and the 34-year-old driver.
“I’m in complete shock,” Jackee Fonner said. “I mean, a grown adult! He was the only adult in the situation and he didn’t even pull over!”
She said her son, who was treated at a local hospital for a busted lip and chipped teeth from the punch, has not been in school since the attack.
Chester City Police Commissioner Joseph Bail Jr. told WPIV-TV that the driver should have reported the attack — but cops didn’t learn about the punch until they were alerted to the online video.
“I have a problem with a grown adult not reporting it,” Bail said. “He has a responsibility to inform his supervisors and the police of a criminal act.”
The executive director of the school — which teaches students with behavioral issues — would not comment any further when the news station questioned them about the incident.
Police said charges could be filed as soon as Tuesday.
Charge them all. If the bus driver was too scared to get involved, he should have at least reported it.
