Disabled 13-year-old Brooklyn girl hurled off moving bus by bully
Daily News ^ | March 13, 2013

Posted on 03/13/2013 9:02:25 AM PDT by Sopater

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.

Education officials said that they are looking to put the boy who attacked Amore-Virginia on another route.

Yeah, that should solve the problem.

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.

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.

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.

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”.

My apologies for the previous post. From the link, the vic is obviously a person of color, but no information on the perp other than he is male.

But what's with this are looking to put the boy b.s.? He must have some special victim status than just his color to get this kid glove treatment since we all understand that in the libtard hierarchy that people of color are better than people without and females are superior to males. Since this gal has gender, race AND disability on her side, I'm guessing that the perp must have an ace up his sleeve such as being the spawn of some official in the school system.

We don’t have the whole unvarnished story here, I think. If you look at the picture of the ‘disabled’ girl and her mother it might give some perspective. That girl is huge for her age and built like a tank. One could only imagine that bulk and size coupled with a bi-polar attitude coming into play. The look of the mother can, to me, only be described as “yeah man...I’m gonna git my effing money outta dis.”

This, coupled with a lack of to what extremes the bi-polar disorder extends, and a very very curious comment in the article about “the full sized bus.....”....makes me think there is more here than meets the eye.

Mother of Amore-Virginia Peterson, 13, is outraged bully was allowed back on the school bus the next day after the incident, which also caused him to fall onto a roadway. The two managed to get off the street before being hit by oncoming traffic.

The "bully" also fell onto the roadway. He's a victim, too!

There were two matrons on a school bus? WTH? We're talking children, not prison. Something’s bad wrong with this whole picture. Are you telling me three adults (including the driver) couldn't keep order on a schoolbus carrying kids? Time to shut down government education.

Not that the bully wasn’t in the wrong.

A “disabled” 6th grader? Disabled for being bi-polar. She looks pretty big to be in the 6th grade. Probably gets a crazy check. Those are real big with Obama’s peeps.

So due to her size and your perception of her mother's attitude you figure she DESERVED to be thrown off a moving bus into traffic? That there is a valuable perspective and mitigating circumstances whereby throwing her off a moving bus into traffic was a reasonable response and not at all assault and battery and attempted murder?

I agree with you. If someone is thrown off a moving bus into traffic, my first thought is not to question the motives of the victim, or speculate about whether the mother is going to sue. I think its safe to say this was a crime and the girl is a victim.

Exactly. We joke about it but I would not be surprised if the matrons claimed it wasn’t their job to deal with violence on the bus, or that all they were supposed to do was radio the police. Get paid $40K a year + lifetime benefits to sit on a bus twice a day and not have to do anything.

Sure. What about the fallacy that the poster's perception of the mother's attitude was a mitigating factor in her daughter being thrown off a bus into moving traffic?

That should go without debate? That isn't fallacious?

It seems the reaction of the mother is a lot more reasonable than what a lot of FReepers are suggesting should be done or what they would do if their daughter were thrown off a moving bus into traffic.

why are mothers sending their kids to government schools?

THis girl, it’s March, this girl has been dealing with this criminal for six months or more now. She’s thirteen. Has she been tuned into the fact that the boy’s been making sexual advances toward her daughter, this murderer?

Why won’t these women just quit their jobs, become consumers, refuse to overpay (become family financial managers again), not marry idiots who will leave them, and just take care of their children.

she needs to quit her stupid job and spend the next period of her life going after this guy for attempted murder and probably attempted rape, at least sexual assault.

This girl was terrorized as was every kid on that bus.

Who the hell is taking care of these kids??

NO one is taking care of these kids.

I didn’t say she ‘deserved’ anything. I’m just saying, that with the concerns I’ve noted, it would bear well to get the facts before hanging the ‘accused’ off the bridge by his ding-a-ling...for all I know she coulda been beating up on him and they ended up in the back of the bus with her trying to throw him off and she got thrown out instead. This story reeks of incomplete information.

The article doesn’t say much about the attacker.
Must be because his mama isn’t complaining to the media and the school is not allowed to talk.

I suspect this is a “short bus” incident.
As in, a bus-full of ‘special’ kids that got out of control.
Maybe both the victim and the attacker are “disabled.”
That’s why they’re keeping the police off the boy.
Because he’s ‘special’, too.

'You are a “bully” if you through a person off a moving buss in to traffic, and you are “disabled” if you are bi-polar?'

Plot to the movie, "Dumb and Dumberer":
'...this ill-conceived prequel follows the Carrey/Daniels characters, Lloyd and Harry, as they bungle their way through high school. The principal and his demented lunch lady have hatched a scheme to embezzle funds intended for students with "special needs," and Harry & Lloyd unwittingly recruit a few "intellectually challenged" classmates to fuel the plot.'

Government schools have to bring in the dollars one way or another!

Maybe these feral yoots were riding the really short bus.
