PostSubject: Bus driver jailed after allegedly assaulting special needs teen   Fri Oct 30, 2015 9:45 am

An Iowa school bus driver accused of assaulting a special needs student is behind bars.

Other students with cellphones recorded the violent confrontation Thursday in the back of the crowded bus, reports Elaine Quijano of CBS News' digital network, CBSN.

According to kids on the bus, the 15-year-old special needs student was not following the instructions of the driver. When the student said something inflammatory to the driver and allegedly threw something at him, the driver stopped the bus.

Gracie Foster grabbed her cellphone and started recording the violent confrontation after driver Robert Scarborough stopped the bus.

"The bus driver threw him down on the ground and yelled at him," said Foster. "I was shaking and everyone was crying."

You can see on the video as the student throws an object at Scarborough. He then walks towards the student and, according to police, grabbed the special needs student by his jacket, pulled him out of his seat and struck him in the face.

"He hit him in the head and he has a disability in his head so he's supposed to be watching us, not hurting us," said Ady Serdarevic, who was sitting next to the student.

Students on the video can be heard crying and screaming at the driver to stop.

The driver returned to his seat and drove to the next stop. Students saw a police car parked nearby and ran off the bus to alert the officer.

According to the Johnson Police Department, Scarborough, 61, was arrested at the scene and taken to jail on charges of "assault causing injury and child endangerment."

The Johnson Community School District posted a statement on their website, saying in part: "It appears as though the driver made a series of poor choices regarding how to handle the student's behavior."

Scarborough has been placed on administrative leave.



Click the LINK to watch the video. CAUTION: It's VERY disturbing. I was in tears for this boy. If I had witnessed him doing that, I would have tore him apart.

Speechless! I think they need to give bus drivers more training in how vto deal with certain situations, how to better cope with some people and also do better testing or whatever is needed before hiring.

Did you see him telling that one boy to sit down and shut up? That poor kid was only trying to defend the special needs boy. I hope this fuck face goes to jail and gets used as a punching bag.

I also agree that bus drivers should have training in how to deal with Special Needs children. This guy was clearly off his rocker. Even if this boy didn't have special needs, it's still wrong to put your hands on a minor like that.

This makes me absolutely livid.  And the school systems are put off because so many of us special needs moms are "helicopter parents" With all of the stuff that goes on while at school how dare people question us.  There needs to be massive reform done when it comes to special needs education and regulations.  I know a lot of people here don't like Hilary but maybe if she gets into office she will finish where she left off and provide our kids a safe learning environment.
