And miss out on union gems like these?Only a grifting dark stain would suggest that a union crew of drivers would save money over X # of years. And didn't this filthy progressive affirmative action pig oversee a grade rigging scandal? Yep, same pig. Once again we see the waste of affirmative action darlings. No way would a white superintendent been such a lousy failure.
A Columbus City Schools bus driver pleaded guilty last year to threatening to beat a student on her bus, blow up her house and put a hole in her mothers head, but she kept her job after she blamed the outburst on menopause.
Before that, in 2010, a third-grade girl told the driver that she had been raped on the bus. The driver told the girl that she couldnt have been raped unless her clothes were off, and she did not report that the student said she was attacked by four boys.
The driver also ran several stop signs while the assault was going on, a district report said.
Abdul-Mateens union representative spoke on her behalf at her district hearing. The driver had enrolled in an employee-assistance program and had begun medication for menopause. She was caring for her ill husband, and the district should take into account the enormous stress she was under, the statement said. She was embarrassed and remorseful.
Bus Driver Found With Drugs
By WTVN Newsroom
What started as an improper left turn ended with a school bus driver being arrested for having drugs on the bus.
Columbus Police say it happened on the city's east side around 2:30pm. They saw a bus owned by a Cincinnati-based company called First Student, turning from Alum Creek to Livingston Avenue. When the stopped the bus the driver said he didn't have any identification.
Sgt. James Branam says the driver, Lawrence Battle, was taken to a cruiser so officers could ask him more questions, that's when an officer noticed the top of a hypodermic needle laying near the front seat in the bus. Officers then searched the bus and found another needle filled with a small amount of cocaine.
Battle has been arrested on charges of possession of cocaine, improper left turn, and possession of drug paraphernalia.
