Really? Did you take the time to read the story or did you get upset because it wasn't followed by a cartoon? F'ing troll...

Short bus? You just proved what a loser you are by even using that kind of language. I'm sick of worthless scum making fun of special needs kids. They're better people than you are, and they'll get into heaven just fine. I can't say the same about you.

Exactly! What if the next Jeffery Damher answered the door!!! A parents worst nightmare. And I can't believe Carl Easly's statement! It's great 1,700 hundred students made it home safely, but it should've been 1,701!

What is public school and society coming to these days? Can't even get kids home right, let alone close a gap. But at least a football field and offices look good.

I heard something about criminal charges on Channel Five news, unless I'm mistaken. Haven't read the article.

The father is going to sue the school. It's all about money. Retard should have had his address around his neck.

Its not the lil boys fault. The little boy trusted the bus drive to get him home safely, but instead he was forced off the bus in an unfamiliar location. We as taxpayers pay the school not only to teach the kids but to get them home safely as well.
I'm guessing u don't have kids because that was a heartless statement. Shame on you and the bus driver. I would love to know who the bus driver is that forced the boy off the bus.

I'm pretty certain it's not about the money. The father has a great job and they live in a really nice neighborhood. It about the fact of the matter and how the situation was handled. I have children who will be school age before long and if it takes a lump sum of cash to wake up the school officials and prevent this happening to my kids, then all the better! Judging from our superintendents statement, as long as 99% of our kids are safe, he's doing a helluva job!

I can understand being mad and using a few unkind words toward Easley, but pressing charges or suing is idiotic. Itís not like they tried to endanger the kid. Apparently what ever form the parent filled out with their address didnít get to the right person for some reason and they carried the kid to his previous address. My bet is they made every possible effort to contact a parent before defaulting to the last known address. If I were a parent I would insure either the kid knew their address by heart or had something on them with a phone number and address.

They may or may not prove negligence, but there are no actual damages.

While the school and bus driver both made a serious mistake the father should be thankful that it all worked out. I don't blame the dad for being upset cause I am sure that was a very scary situation. I do think he should forgive and help the school from this ever happening again. I am sure the dad is not perfect and has made mistakes before also. We all have.

My belief is that the WSD has a protocol in place to cover that situation and the driver either wasn't aware of it or simply ignored it. They're supposed to have communication device to make contact with the school in this sort of situation, or at least that used to be true. The driver made a bad decision, but fortunately the situation didn't go from bad to worse. My guess is that this won't be repeated anytime soon. Criminal charges and lawsuits aren't warranted in this case, but had things actually taken a very bad turn ... at that point we'd want attorneys to be involved.

The child told the driver more than once that he didn't live in this neighborhood and he hadn't seen his house! But the driver told him it was his stop and told to get off!!

Imagine sitting there on the phone with the school/ bus shop and them telling you that they're not certain where your son is but they're trying to contact the driver whose already gone home and tell me no damage was done! Negligence shouldn't be hard to move!
