On the Eagles.
By -- you've seen this cell phone video shot Monday in a school bus featuring New York middle school students pulling an elderly female school monitor.
Karen Klein was ridiculed threatened even as she cried.
-- -- Now watching that was your first inclination I wanted to track down each -- -- test -- -- of my knuckles.
Which is why the police worry for the safety these kids -- everybody feels that way.
Thankfully Karen Klein he's doing fine a website created to center on vacation is amassed over 300000 dollars to one day that's pretty awesome.
But want to get past -- -- violent fantasies I realize that were not all that innocent as a teenager I remember being picture of my teacher mr.
Once slipped on snails I placed around the podium.
Thank -- cell -- went around back then I'd be institutionalized.
So I'm not sure there's an escalation of bullying.
We may just be seeing more of it because were recording it which I think is pretty good the capacity for human evil is present every day almost always in mob form.
Whether it's kids or adults in unfolds before passive observers.
But when you wonder how these kids should be punished considered that this video will follow them for years like a stain on a leash.
Which is a reminder to all -- jerks that banks in the digital age Big Brother is watching a good thing for a little old lady like Karin Klein.
-- I these public when you see kids doing this I went up place shot from one of the the fathers are -- I wonder if they're salvageable.
But let's play this and then that but he.
My heart broke.
I couldn't believe my.
My son could Katrina and human being went -- my family -- -- death threats it was a stupid mistake in the game he's paying for it was blown way out of control us.
Is that a fairly good you know description of what happened now it's job.
Blown fairly out of control on failure to control the fact of matter is it was it was well that more outrage -- that's -- sure this one on as usual you do.
And you say you -- you fully -- back I would not to my restraint -- these kids are a product of that guy was talking right there at his kid was decent.
And he trotted right and raised you right to -- wouldn't do that sort of thing.
I think they all belong in juvenile hall.
And I think not just a video following around -- record is a good idea.
You just don't want to Eric she -- want to prosecute -- -- I don't know what if there's a crime.
Committed but she just it -- this is a wonderful lady.
Said that she just you know once -- out their life just got enough money to buy new on the sad thing is if or another kid that they were blowing that way yet it would be you know people will be actually -- ago they'd probably -- do -- Suggests.
Jesus you know it's you almost the reverse now kids blowing and indulges you don't see that a lot but.
It's put cameras in buses collided but that would stop all of this -- lot of this is the beauty of out of the modern digital age aren't the only reason we have that is because one of those kids had not Florida Gary did that there have that we would not partly goes on a lot more put a camera on the bus I'm all for that what is going on Q you dozens -- -- -- budget that's for -- I think it that they might be for that the parents.
To have to be bus monitors for a week yet eventually ended they had to have to see what goes on so that they can talk to their kids about it because -- -- being bussed in Denver they did then.
Busing them when I'm -- the fourth grade I actually had.
To sit up front my data complain about behavior against me on the bus so then but bus monitors put me up front and I remember looking -- is so scared all the time with those ladies.
But I think as my dad would have been a bus monitor it then.
Maybe they would have been nicer we think can I what should happen OK what should happen to these kids.
A lot -- -- on the became a test on number one and I think they should be suspended.
From school and they should have privileges taken away if -- participants on certain teams I have heard a girl in there as well.
Chilean team whenever any kind of like after school activities -- -- special feel chips or something can't they do need to be punished.
-- need to be educated I think the acting threatened to stab someone asked.
That's a series -- so there are ways to deal with that is juvenile justice system I dealt a lot of kids like this that I had to.
He handle I'm in court and what they do they trying to rehabilitate them getting counseling.
Educate them to community service you can't just let it now obviously that's a -- humiliated but something's also wrong in the home.
-- don't you know that I think he's.
If you don't take my eight solution this statement figures were not -- not let them -- school buses but their parents have to drive outside Atlanta I don't walk and I think is the idea -- him at any school activities out to be suspended.
And Franken out of their final Levy is suppression of the good news about this is I assume this is enough widespread publicity most parents don't sit around -- table of nights and you see what happened on a school bus yeah don't look at that hey you don't kick it send him to Judy for that.
No a she doesn't want to participate in the process where -- -- -- -- -- -- -- yet the district attorney's -- can look at this as a number of options that are available what they call HOP which -- home on probation with terms and conditions.
So they're on were -- for a certain period of time and they have to complete certain things like you talked about it this table so that -- happen I think that is appropriate you have to intervene now so they don't become like recidivism engaged.
In other conduct like this going forward that we got to move -- I don't.
I don't think these kids will be getting jobs in a long long time to step this stuff lives forever all right MSNBC's hiring as an honorable I had to -- there are.
