  1. Inventions of Yakub are so racist still,getting blacks fired who only wanted to grant the racist inventions of Yakubs children's dreams of driving a school bus on a straight country road where no other traffic is.. GOD has something for the racist inventions of Yakub.

  2. You know the Inventions of Yakub were asking Ms Bus Driver,"Umm umm,Ms Bus Driver..can we drive the bus again today? It's funnnn! Yay!!"

  3. Charged/terminated ?? That's it ??? She's not in custody undergoing a serious psych evaluation? If she's at large what was the bail set at? Interesting they don't come up with these very pertinent facts. Something tells me she's free walking amongst the community. Otherwise, it would have stated that she wasn't. Seriously wouldn't doubt it. If so, that local justice department should be completely ashamed of themselves.This could have been a complete disaster, the fact that it wasn't doesn't mean she shouldn't be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law, regardless of no priors considering the circumstances. Her intent is completely immaterial. PSYCH EVAL !!!

  4. A vo-tech-esque program letting kids get behind the wheel of a vehicle, including buses, is a great idea (one I would actually support)…like on a closed track, with plenty of supervision & safety parameters, in a bus NOT CURRENTLY TRANSPORTING KIDS IN ACTUAL TRAFFIC!!

  5. It's hard to believe anyone could be so lacking in good judgement. Not that it matters, but this is not a new bus driver. She had been on the job a couple years. Anyone who tells the kids not to let any adults know what they did today obviously knows what she did was wrong.

  6. I think it's a good thing, you hear stories about someone having a heart attack or something happening to someone and they're with their kid and the kid takes control and steers the car. i think it's good to teach them how to at least steer the car safely to the side of the road so it doesn't hit another vehicle or something. Plus the driver was supervising them, it's not like she just gave them the wheel and let them drive.

  7. Sadly, this was my bus.
    I wasn't on the bus the day it happened, but she was my bus driver.
    She was… Something. That's all I gotta say.

  8. Excuse me TERRIFYING. Look this right here is teaching you how to drive, pretty educational.
