The should have never taken place if the driver was calling and reporting every incident. When their are disciplinary actions taken that shows a sign that the kids have been a problem for a while before this ever happened. Something should have been done because with the bus driver being attacked while driving he could have easily wrecked the bus and hurt many people. The children should be expelled from school and from riding school bus. Just because it's the same as to attacking a teacher. It's someone of higher authority in which kids should respect and obey them as a person who works for the school system.

Every violence must be penalized. There is no excuse to bully or attack anyone. Teenage or adolescent moods must not be an excuse. The suspension looks like a good example for any future similar cases.

Stuff like this happens all the time. There are constant complaints about things that should be fixed, but aren't acknowledged until the worst happens. Thankfully there wasn't a car accident at the time of the assault. because things could have gone a lot worse than they did...
