I was going to say take them out back and beat them with a baseball bat.  I am only half kidding. 

I couldn’t finish that video because I was crying.  I’ll never understand people who talk to people like that.  Let alone respecting your elders, etc.  The stuff they were saying was disgusting and I just don’t understand.

I think they shouldn’t get to ride the bus for sure. But I also do think community service is a good idea. Suspending kids who don’t want to be there anyway does not a bit of good. I think forcing them to do some kind of good may make them realize that “Hey, I’m an idiot who shouldn’t treat other humans like that!”

I think they should have to apologize to each and every person on that bus for doing what they did. And then they should be beat. I’ll do it if no one else will. Wink

Community service, some kind of empathy/humanity course. (Someone help me think of the correct terminology there?)

The parents should be required to take a parenting course. They are in some way responsible for their childrens’ behaivor.

Suspension for bus.

The should hsve some steep punishments. I’m not sure mine are the right idea, but there should be consequences.

They should have to do some incredibly humbling things. Like change diapers at nursing homes, clean up vomit, etc etc. Attend some funerals where someone has taken their own life- see how fun it is to not only see someone dead, but watch their destroyed family crying out in grief and pain.

And yeah, no more bus rides. Get rid of media- no t.v., computer, phone etc.

Ditto community service, etc.

And they need to be cleaning Karen’s house and mowing her lawn for the rest of their lives. They need to humble themselves to HER, first and foremost.

I agree with community service and suspension. I also like Ms. Peron’s ideas.

They absolutely deserve to have noted in their permanent records that they severely harassed someone who did absolutely nothing to provoke or deserve it. This should follow them through the rest of their school careers. They may be kids, but they are old enough to know that what they did was wrong.

I definitely agree with no more riding the bus and cutting off their connection to the media, they need to get back into their own headspace and really reflect on their actions. Their parents need to be aware of what’s going on, also. 

You’re welcome to disagree, but, I also suggest counseling. I’m not justifying their actions, but I really feel that there’s something else going on in situations like this.

@UpstateCait:  “Stupid” is a bad word in my SIL’s house…as far as my nieces (6 and 11) are concerned, it’s up there with every other swear word.

I feel like she should press charges, if those were my kids (and god help them if they were, i’d beat their a** til no end), I’d want them to have to deal with the legal part of it so they would learn.They should publicly apologize to her, lots of community service, banned from the bus…taken to a jail as seen on scared straight, to give them an eye opener.

I think their parents need to open up a can of whoop ass on all of them.  I would be ashamed if that were my children.

I couldn’t bring myself to even watch this video. Just seeing everyones reaction I know it’s bad. I have a 12 yo and there is no way he would talk to anyone in a disrepectful manner. He was raised to open doors, give up his seat, take off his baseball cap, say grace, etc. etc. But this took work on my part. I think the problem is most parents take little to no involvement in raising and disipling their children. They are now being raised by video games and TV with parents are too afraid to say no or woop on their kids when needed. This is why we have kids like this, kids that lay their hands on elderly, bring guns to school. It just sickens me.
