A bully tossed a disabled girl out of the back door of a moving school bus and straight into the path of oncoming traffic an attack that easily could have ended in death.
Two matrons were on the bus dealing with a ruckus, but neither was able to protect Amore-Virginia Peterson, 13, on Friday. She said that when she slammed into the pavement she thought she was going to die but she managed to scramble out of the road before she was hit by the cars bearing down on her.
The bipolar sixth-grader suffered a broken collarbone and was rushed from the scene in an ambulance.

That's not a bully. That's a criminal psychopath!
Drop him off the Brooklyn Bridge...........
How about arrested for assault and battery and attempted murder?
When you throw someone out a moving vehicle into traffic you are not a “bully”.
A bully verbally abuses someone.
Attempted murder is not bullying. It is attempted murder.
I wonder how big the SSI check is that she gets for being “bipolar?”
With his junk tied to a rope.
Bipolar is a disability? Maybe in adults but kids naturally swing between mania and depression, they’re kids.
I must be disabled as I’m left handed, where be my osama phone?
If the victim were my daughter, I would not bother with the pathetic excuse for a school system that thinks a new bus route is the answer. I'm with you - prosecute for felony assault/battery and attempted murder, if possible in adult court. This thug needs a nice long vacation where he cannot hurt decent people. Eventually, he'll get life without parole, or better, but we need to keep other kids safe until this thug is old enough for that sentence.
The article doesn't say so but it seems like this is NOT a police matter. How can this be? If this had happened to my kid it would be a police matter, either because the cops were called and the little bastard was arrested or because failing that I'd have take care of the cretin myself.
That little bastard need to be in a padded cell! that’s his route!
File criminal charges. The person who did this doesn’t belong in a school with other potential victims.
My thoughts exactly.
You guys forget they are proposing anti-bullying legislation right now so the number of bullying incidents is going to rise in direct proportion to the number of days until they vote on it. Same with gun control.
But yeah they should discipline the bully like they used to back a half century ago. He wouldn’t be pulling this crap if they let parents discipline their children or at least not near as much of it.
I'm going to go out on a limb and speculate that the psychopath was a member of a protected minority whereas the victim was not.
OTOH, if he (yeah, I'm assuming the psycho was male) had done something really dangerous like, say, making a pop tart into the shape of a pistol, he would have gotten suspended or expelled rather than merely transferred to another bus route.
“The article doesn’t say so but it seems like this is NOT a police matter.”
It should be.
School Districts like to use the Ed Code and consider themselves a power unto themselves. The kids are theirs from leaving home till back at home. They administer punishments and solutions. And with zero tolerance, they have no problems — a utopia.
Been there, done that.
1. I agree that the boy is not a “bully.” He is a criminal who should be charged with assault and perhaps even attempted manslaughter.
2. There were two “matrons” on the bus — two— who presumably were supposed to be able to deal with things like this. They failed. Just goes to show how useless a lot of the school bureaucracy is.
Public hanging let him swing for a week
A good one. Had a neighbor that had her 3 yo daughter declared bipolar. A 3 year- old. This mom later had CPS take her kids and we fostered them for a month and a half. Nothing wrong with her that a good dose of supervision and regular meals didn’t cure. Things her Mom was too busy to supply. Doctors just rely on what the parents say when declaring alot of these “disabilities”.
Brooklyn mom Harriet McNeill is outraged daughter Amore-Virginia Peterson, 13, was pushed off school bus, breaking her collarbone.

I am making an example of you, to send
a message out to people everywhere:
