3/13 Update: Local girl beat unconscious on school bus

Seven juveniles - five girls and two boys ranging in ages 12 through 15 - beat a 13-year-old girl so badly she was left unconscious and had to be taken to a hospital Friday morning while on the school bus on their way to school, according to Sheriff's Office reports.

Deputies said the incident occurred around 7:30 a.m. on the way to school, and that there were approximately 74 children on the bus.

Seven youths charged with beating girl on school bus

I was sick to my stomach reading this.  One 13 yo girl against 7 others, beat so badly that she suffered a concussion, severe bruising on her head and muscle spasms. The school bus driver stopped twice, should he have done more?  What type of punishment should given out to those involved?

Sounds to me like the bus driver did all he could by considering the safety of the other 60 students on the bus.

 

Hopefully the teenagers involved in beating the girl will be permanently removed from society.

Wow! Imagine those are the students that parents send to school everyday. Unfortunately we know these students are not alone. There are many who act like this. Maybe we should say it is everyones fault except those students who participated. Who has the resposibility for these students' behavior? Not the school system/ bus drivers, teachers,administrators   .... the families.

juvenile detention. But they'll get probation... they always do....

In the article it states that one 14-year-old girl said she punched the victim in the head 10 to 15 times because the girl allegedly called her a name. I just don't understand the anger in these kids that makes them explode like this. 

The kids that beat this poor girl suffer from what is called entitlement syndrome, they think they deserve everthing and will not tolerate anyone that says otherwise. They would not let the girl sit in a seat, the driver can not move if there is anyone standing up. These kids need to be expelled and put into some type of juvenile center until they are 21 also lose all priviledges. These are the kids that mug others because they are too lazy to work for what they want. They threaten others if they want to cheat and another person will not help them cheat. If another person has nice clothes they will steal or damage the clothes. If I was the driver I would have driven non stop to the nearest police station which is not far from where this happened. I could never be a bus driver because someone would die and it would not be me.

I just have to scream *in my head of course*

WHY WHY WHY WHY WHY WHY WHY

This is so STUPID.  Why on earth would ANYONE think it okay to beat a girl THEY HAVE NEVER EVEN MET LIKE THIS. 

What is wrong with people?  What on earth did the parents of these kids teach them?  At NO TIME in MY LIFE did I or have I ever thought FOR ONE SECOND that beating another human being for no apparent reason would be okay. 

It sounds more like a pack of animals than tweens and honestly I am sickened by it.  I hope all the kids involved are made to go to an alternative school, get counseling, community service and maybe even some time in juvie to make them think about what they put this poor girl through.  WHY did anyone throw a freaking shoe to begin with?  I am just appalled.

I feel for the bus driver can you imagine being in THAT position all that going on with all those kids and no help.  Knowing one of the kids is being beaten the way she was. 

To the young girl who was beaten.  I am so sorry you had to go through something so traumatic.  I hope you are able to get help with dealing with what those kids did to you. My thoughts are with you and your family and I hope you heal and get better very quickly. 

OH and 74 kids on the bus....IS THAT NORMAL?  Sounds like an AWFUL lot of kids to me.

That was one of my first thoughts but with the continued cuts they will probably be stacking them 4 to a seat.  Would never want the responsibility of a bus driver...

I don't get it either. How can someone think this is okay? Trish I agree with you. It does sound like an pack of animals. I also wondered why 74 kids are on one bus. This makes me sick to my stomach that this poor girl had to endure this.

Inside the makeshift courtroom at the Marion County Jail, Assistant State Attorney John Zaleskie asked Judge Frances King to detain the youths due to what the prosecutor described as "extreme violence" and injuries suffered by the victim until their arraignment.

King decided to release the seven — who the prosecutor said had no prior arrests — to their parents/guardians and place them on home detention.
