    I know this driver. Never saw aggression from him before. He needs an interpreter. What's his side of the story? Maybe the student tripped and the driver reached?

    Yep, the driver wakes up one morning and realizes there's no cereal in the cupboard …. Oh, what to do ? I know says a voice in his head …. when I get to work the 1st kid I see with green eyes gets thrown down the bus stairs …. this way I can get free meals while in jail.
    Let's not judge so quickly folks …. What if you were driving the bus ? Please wait for the information to unfold !!!

    When I was younger one of our bus drivers slapped a child. The child deserved it, we said nothing. However, pushing a child down stairs (if he actually did) is an entirely different story.

    Dang, y'all are quick to judge! I'd wait to hear the evidence. How do you the kid didn't just trip and blame him? Or maybe another kid pushed the kid down the stairs and, again, blamed the driver. The story says nothing about video or witnesses, yet y'all are ready to ruin his life!

    He should be fired, and prosecuted immediately....not suspended.

    Suspended? Should be fired, and then kicked down a stairwell on his head.
