      This has got to be the cruelest thing I have ever seen :( a group of school kids on a bus video themselves bullying a 68 year old bus monitor and bringing her to tears.

      From what I understand a fund raising website has been set up and has been confirmed to be legit and the amount is going up by $100's every few minutes, the fund raising site has been set up to raise $5,000 to allow the victim to have a well deserved vacation.

      She is apparently only on just over $15,000 a year salary doing this job and she has to suffer abuse like this which isn't the first time.

      Well people are funding a retirement for her and the online hackers are going after the kids and their families.

      I'm glad someone posted the video.

      It was shocking to see on the news. Good to see it posted and some good come from it. The father of one of the boys was shocked he couldn't believe his son would do something like that and I guess there are a few parents like that.

      I had actually just heard about this for the first time yesterday, and to actually see the video...
      It's really horrible what these kids did, and I hope they get punished for it.

      I think it's disgusting what those children did. I was brought up to respect people older than me, especially elders. Those children should be punished harshly for what they did. I would hate to think how those children are brought up at home.

      I agree, makes you wonder what they think is so great about acting like that.

      I would have never thought about acting like that myself when I was younger, had more respect than that for my elders.

      I checked on the website the other day where they are raising money so she can go on vacation and retire and they had hit the milestone of $5,000 and where well over $600,000.

      If my parents would have heard that I had done something like that, I would have never gone home as I would have gotten the crap beaten out of me.

      I agree, I wouldn't have dared to go home myself after doing something like that my parents definitely would have never tolerated it, it was something that would have never crossed my mind to do as I was always taught to respect my elders.

      Things like this really do show how bad things are getting though :/

      It's sad to see what kids have turned into this generation. With all this violence,vulgar things on the internet, it's no surprise that most turn like this. I really hope their parents gave them a beating.
