Default Vacation of a lifetime pledged for bus monitor bullied in video

Quote:
Updated 12:50 a.m. Thursday ET: Karen Klein, a school bus monitor of Greece, N.Y., depicted being verbally bullied in a video gone viral, may have the last laugh.

By early Thursday on the fund-raising site indiegogo.com, nearly 5,300 donors had pledged more than $100,000 in a campaign called “Lets Give Karen – The bus monitor – H Klein A Vacation.”
Vacation of a lifetime pledged for bus monitor bullied in viral video - U.S. News



Beware, video contains foul language and overall terrible behavior. While I'm not a proponent of violence, I would smack these kids. Bullying in general disgusts me, and I'm especially frustrated that they would pick on an elderly woman. She's quite obviously not doing the job because it pays well, she's doing it because she wants to do something good for the youth, but this is how they treat her. She gets the last laugh though, there's been a massive amount of pledges to give her a vacation. MASSIVE AMOUNT.

Lets Give Karen -The bus monitor- H Klein A Vacation! -- Indiegogo

I just absolutely couldn't finish the full ten minutes of the video, I only stopped halfway. It was just so painful to watch. These kids are awful.

For anyone who has been bullied before, we all know how piercing the insults can get. Wow, I mean just wow. She was in tears.

Never in my life even as a youth...
I've never seen this type of behavior
I don't believe in swearing... i find it barbaric
But to harass someone especially for her age
That's just...cruel
It doesn't make me feel bad anymore
About when kids/people would pick on me
as a child/Middle schooler after seeing this

I couldn't make it past like :45 seconds. I was just like, wat. I really do hope those children got some sort of suspension, because that is just unacceptable.

Jon Paula on his personal vBlog channel posted this news about this, and I have a good feeling that I can not watch that video because I am very sensitive. (Then again that trait is how I got a few bully incidents at my special ed. days.)

These kids were HORRIBLE! I remember hearing a few cuss words in the past, but I think teens and the internet influence really made what they are today... Which of course it was probably from bad parenting.

And wow the fundraiser gave the woman a LOT more than she deserve! I wonder what is she going to do with all of the donated money...

The donations are already almost to $600,000. Needless to say, you can bet that a lot of people related to her plight. Being bullied is something that a lot of people understand.

I wonder what the involved students are thinking now that they made their bus driver 600k richer. Besides that I would hope that something along the lines of suspension or expulsion would be done as well.

Even if you're trying to show sarcasm you're doing it horribly wrong.

Oh look, generic scum of the world teenagers flinging around swears to be hip and cool. Remember, these are the kids that get let off with a warning or a few days of suspension, while the harmless kid in the back that accidentally hit someone got an expulsion!

If someone was being harassed enough to have a comment like "it's a terrible thing to make the internet angry sometimes." drop, it's probably because they deserve it. Retribution of society, there's no better remedy.

it is good to see such an explosive reaction from the world after seeing a victim of bullying... not much else to say other than that I hope she lives comfortably with the donations

Some sources said that she'll use the money to plan her retirement, donate to charity, and buy cars for her grandkids. I dunno how to feel about the last one, but if people donated money to her then it's her business on how to use it~

Personally, I support the vigilante-style explosive retribution the internet doled out on the bullies. At least they learned an important life lesson early; That whatever you do, it'll come back a thousand fold. Better it be from the internet than from a man with a gun and a short temper.
