'I had my hands full' ... Man aiding bus driver from students' assault
wsbt.com ^ | 04/17/12 | Chad Damp

Posted on 04/17/2012 12:43:34 PM PDT by Pining_4_TX

Randy Rohrer was taken aback by how strong two boys were, especially being so young. The boys … 7- and 8-years-old … will be in court May 11 to face battery charges stemming from a Friday afternoon incident on a Michigan City Areas Schools bus.

Witnesses say it took five adults to stop two young boys who police say punched and pulled the hair of their bus driver.

Just noticing one of the keywords. I’m pretty sure this is Indiana, not Michigan.

I wonder if these are young and aspiring Obamasons.

Back in the day, striking an adult gave them full licence to return a strike with a haymaker of their own. IMHO, it still should.

Perhaps if these punks caught an “Adult sized” blow to the body, the concept that they shouldn’t assault an adult would gradually sink in. As they picked up a handful of teeth, this would give them pause to consider the error of their ways.

But, alas, Libtards have decreed that our children may beat us at will; and we are forced to simply try to restrain these little thugs in response.

I wonder is they looked like Obama's sons (if he had any).

Sorry, I thought about that after I posted - that I just assumed it was MI. Thanks for the correction. Any way to fix it?

I’m sure they were Amish children.

Seriously, if they were white, it would be mentioned. If they are Negroes, the left wing media will cover it up. Negroes can only be victims like poor innocent little Trayvon Laqueesha Moesha or whatever his name was. Its always whitey’s fault.

The “surprise” was likely due to the fact the kids had no respect for adult authority and the fact that it “required” strength rather than respect to dissuade them.

We have to be careful. There’s probably a website and a whole ad campaign going up as we speak. I wonder who could pitch it? Maybe Vince from Sham WoW?

If there is, I assume my pinging the Admin Moderator in my reply promted the proper action. I checked, the Indiana keyword is added (Michigan isn’t removed so watch out Crip!)

“At that point, the 7-year-old tried to get off the bus, but the driver stopped him. Police say the boy then shoved her to the ground, pulled her hair and slammed her head onto the floor. Both boys then punched her in the face and body.”

If she were my wife, when little tyrone got off the bus the next day he be ducking a 2x4.

I personally am in favor of postpartum abortion. At least I believe in giving them a chance.

I went looking and found the school district and the school. Saw the same print the two school buses, one in the news story and one on the school's web site. I am reasonably certain I found the correct location. It's MI.

I also found pictures of kids playing in gym at this school. the demographic is predominantly Caucasian, with other minority races mixed in. That is not to say these kids were not Amish, but the odds are against it.

They deserve to be in substantial hot water regardless. Either that or send them to Detroit where their behavior will fit in.

Sounds like they may need a little "Martinizing" - Trayvon style.....

Will save society a LOT of money in the future.

Michigan City is in Indiana. Indiana City would be in Michigan if only there were a Lake Indiana for it to be located on the shore of.

Pick one up by the back of the pants. Get a hand full, and he will be off balance and down for the count, then pile on. Repeat as necessary.

I work with a lead kids a lot. Let me tell you if any of them acted this way and wouldn’t stand down when I told them, they would have been physically restrained in any way I saw fit including a knee on the neck to keep them down in the dirt. No respect for adults and those in authority = your asking for it.

What drugs are they addicted to... er... medications have they been prescribed?

Back in my day, the bus driver would have stopped the bus, physically thrown both boys off the bus, and drove on.
