The fastest-traveling news story in America today is the story of Karen Klein, a bus monitor in suburban Rochester, New York, who was tormented by the most vicious pack mammal on the planet — the 13-year-old human. I posted the video and follow up on 5×8 this morning.
The police have rounded up the kids, but Ms. Klein is not pressing charges against them, a police captain said during a news conference today.
The school spokesman made a terrific point. The video should be a springboard for parents to have a discussion with their children about bullying. You don’t have to be in Greece, NY to comply with the suggestion.
Meanwhile, an online fundraising effort to give Ms. Klein a vacation passed $250,000 this afternoon. That’s $250,000 more than the cost of what she really wants — an apology.
