June 22, 2012

The online fundraising campaign to send the bullied upstate New York bus monitor Karen Klein on vacation might now let her do something else: retire.

Klein, 68, got national attention after a video of middle school boys in Greece, N.Y., lobbing brutal insults at her on a school bus went viral on the Internet Tuesday. By Friday afternoon, the campaign had sailed above its $5,000 goal — to nearly $550,000.

In the days since the video incited outrage and sympathy in equal measure, two of the four boys in the video have come forward to apologize. In statements released through the Greece Police Department — in which their full names are redacted for their protection after numerous death threats — the boys, named Wesley and Josh, expressed shame at their actions.

"I am so sorry for the way I treated you," Josh wrote. "When I saw the video I was disgusted and could not believe I did that. I am sorry for being so mean and I will never treat anyone this way again."

Thats some real nice news.
All's well that ends well.
Hope for those boys yet.
In the video , Josh' father looks like a nice sort of guy, hardly someone who would encourage that kind of behavior.

Awww...Let it be. Let her have fun. She's 68? Cmon, let her have as much fun. Think of this as a special gift from the people.

If we were to take all the wealth in the world and distribute it equally among all people, (yes tinker, tailor, soldier spy and crook alike), how much money do you think each person will get? Worth thinking about.

Next take the total land mass in the world , and if you were to distribute it equally among all people in the world how much land do you think each gets.

Abundance exists. The Sun, and the stars are proof. They run on free energy. They generate free energy.
Energy and wealth everywhere.

We have been born into a dark ugly matrix, manipulated by evil energies. Life can be different.

When caught, EVERY criminal opines how they are "Very, very sorry...I promise I'll never do it again".

I still say these little turds should be sentenced (6mo - 12mo) to home detention when not in school, along with volunteer work (e.g., reading to Seniors, engaging them in conversation, playing games with them, etc...),on Saturdays and Sundays in adult daycare/nursing home settings.

Let's have their actions match their words.

Written apologies do not cut it. They tormented this woman in person so they need to face her and apologize! These bubble-warped monsters need to learn the meaning of the word Shame. They have brought shame upon themselves and their families.

These kids need help but bootcamps make delinquents worse, not better. Look up the research. What feels right to us isn't always the right answer.

Community service or restorative justice as you suggest is a far better approach than bootcamps. They need to learn empathy.
