Kid cruelty merited public outpouring
The Kansas City Star
A caldron of kid cruelty boils each weekday on school buses.
A video that went viral with millions of viewers worldwide showed seventh-grade boys taunting a 68-year-old bus monitor, Karen Klein. She did her best to ignore them, but clearly she was upset by the name-calling from the teenage bullies.
The public responded after watching the humiliation. Initially a goal of raising $5,000 was set to help Klein take a vacation from the monsters.
Instead, more than $500,000 in donations for Klein poured in from more than 24,000 people. It is a clear indication that the public won’t tolerate bullying, and people were outraged over the lack of respect that teens too often exhibit toward an adult.
Is there no shame anymore?
