Why Your School Bus Needs Bus Video Camera Systems

When entrusted with the safety of the world's most precious cargo, can you afford not to have a proven mechanism to document with dispassionate reason what actions or events may have occurred on a government-operated or sanctioned pupil vehicle?

The burden of proof in criminal and civil lawsuits can often be satisfied with a simple video clip of the incident by a non-biased expert witness in the form of a scientific recording device.

This is the best choice to prove in court if necessary that the behavior of students, as well as drivers, did not violate existing law or school district policy, and if it did, that you have the evidence to prove this in court if necessary to protect the safety and well being of your student passengers as well as drivers or district from wrongful liability lawsuits?

Below are some of the highlights of hatred, madness, violence, and child abuse that American school children are subjected to demonstrate why bus video systems should be on every school bus.

Note: Some of these videos have been pulled from YOUTUBE, due to copyright issues or PC pressure, but when we locate them online we will relink them as it is truly disturbing to witness the level of violence and depravity demonstrated on the bus against children. Innocent children deserve better than the level of neglect this by those charged with their safety. We can as a society do much better than subject innocent children to repeat offender sociopaths regardless of their age.

Pulse-pounding video captures passenger attacking driver on bus before it crashed into building

Shocking video footage captures the moment that an out-of-control passenger brawls with the driver of a moving bus — which crashes into an Oklahoma City business. The wild clip shows straphanger Tihron Harrison wailing away at the driver Wednesday as the bus traveled near North Western Avenue and West Britton Road on Saturday — with the two men getting into a drag-out scuffle even as the bus keeps speeding down the road. A passenger intervenes and pulls Harrison away from the driver — only to have the bus slam into a local storefront, according to a report by WKFOR-TV News. 

School bus driver faces child abuse charges after intentionally slamming on brakes | GMA

A substitute bus driver in Colorado, who said children in the vehicle were misbehaving, was caught on camera abruptly hitting the brakes, leading to some children suffering injuries.

Moment boy prevents school bus from crashing after driver faints

This is the moment a seventh-grader regained control of a school bus whose driver lost consciousness and was on the verge of crashing.
Dillon Reeves was on a bus taking him as well as other students home from a day of classes at Carter middle school in Warren, just north of Detroit, when the driver began to feel dizzy and passed out. Reeves went to the front of the bus after he noticed the driver had fallen, stepped on the brakes and steered away from traffic on the road to bring the vehicle to a stop.

Student attacks school bus driver in Jefferson County
Feb 28, 2024 #FOX31
A school bus driver spoke to FOX31 after she was assaulted by a student on her afternoon route. FOX31's Nicole Fierro shares surveillance video and hears from the driver about what happened.

The above bus video is of a violent thug assaulting a helpless female driver strapped into her seat just trying to get the kids transported safely. Punks like this should be in cages where they do not endanger the lives of children looking for an education. Decades of coddling these sociopaths have proven a complete waste of time, money, and concern for their future, it is time to protect the innocent and punish the guilty.

Raw Video: Teen Girl Draws Gun on School Bus

 "A school bus security video shows students scurrying to exit after a 14-year-old girl drew a semiautomatic handgun from her backpack in Yazoo City, Miss. Officials say there were 22 students on board the bus, ranging in age from 5-to 18. (Sept 3, 2009)"

In some cases, the best a competent, trained, and quick-thinking bus driver can do is to try to get the children off the bus and away from a clear threat like a gun-wielding teenage girl.  The fact that there is so little discipline from broken homes and dysfunctional families, so little self-respect, and for many no hope of a better future, makes the reality of this scenario more common in the future. We are leaving this world to our children,  in a much darker state than that which our parents provided us, and in many ways condemning them to despair.

Racial Hatred & Violence
Racial violence and other child victim in that double standard of accountability and political correctness create a "Hell on Earth" for so many of our children.

This Atlanta bus video shows that not only did students engage in this racial violence and criminal activity, but a parent of one of them also boarded the bus and allegedly choked and tried to kill a child, even threatening to kill her in front of the bus video camera. 

The bus driver who is trained, authorized, compensated, and entrusted to protect these children and look out for them seemed to do nothing to stop this. 

Each morning we send our children into this jungle of hate, violence, and apathy and hope for the best....they deserve so much better than what we provide them, as a society we have failed them so miserably.

Girl Assaulted On School Bus Over T-Shirt   

A teenage girl is beaten on a school bus in Sedalia over a T-shirt. KMBC's Martin Augustine reports.

A school in an adjoining state found out the hard way that a girl had snuck onto a male team bus for an out-of-town away game. By the time the bus returned a very large number of the team had engaged in various sexual acts with this underage girl over the several-hour trip. The end result we learned was Statutory Rape charges for most of the entire team and shame and humiliation of the district in the public eyes where it was a media feeding frenzy when we arrived on-site to install bus video cameras in each bus with night vision cameras to prevent this from happening. 

I have learned you cannot stop children from doing really stupid things, but you can certainly ensure they will not get away with it, so maybe they are less likely to do so in the first place,  by documenting what they do on school property, and that includes the bus.

This level of violent racially motivated hate-driven assaults and criminal abuse are not only happening on the "Yellow" buses, and the number of incidents of racial violence is often not being charged as hate crimes.

Hate-filled predators and sociopaths are now targeting their victims on public transportation where there is nowhere to run and often none to care. 

Racial violence and the double standard of accountability and political correctness create a "Hell on Earth" for so many of us. 

MLK had a dream, filled with the promise of what could be, and some are turning it into a nightmare, with so few willing to take a stand for the love, tolerance, and compassion that MLK was advocating. A great man's vision and legacy are being dishonored daily.

Transit bus video camera surveillance systems would at least provide documentation of the racial assault that might enable police to apprehend these gutless punks, so they could be held accountable for their hate-filled violence.
For less than the cost of this innocent victim's medical care, this bus could have a high-resolution multi-camera bus video surveillance system in place.

Distracted drivers have a 24 times higher incidence of accidents than those who are not distracted. The additional bus video camera that can now be installed on a bus that faces the driver to document their activities, can provide a constant reminder for the driver to "do the right thing". MVS now offers a Cell Phone Detection system that alerts the supervisors and Operations Manager as soon as the driver activates their cell phone in the driving seat area. 

Special Needs Student Takes Beating From School Bus Aide

"Two Darlington, South Carolina elementary school bus aides Tomeka Self  (pictured in blue)and Rosanna Dudley (pictured in white) were arrested and charged with assault and battery for repeatedly striking a 10-year-old special needs child who could not speak. The incident was recorded on camera, reports Carolina Live.

The St. John Elementary School student sat defenselessly in his seat weeping as the ruffians struggled to put on his safety harness. The child never lashed out at the women. The disturbing minute and a half long video show them hitting the little boy on his body, slapping him on the face, pushing his head down, and yelling at him to “hush.”
Unbelievable, intolerable, and inexcusable for this to happen on a school bus, and worse to a special needs child at the hands of 2 representatives of the district who are supposed to be vetted, trained, and charged with the safety of these children. The lack of compassion, and rough treatment of this small disabled child, would enrage the ASPCA if this were done to a dog or cat. If you do not have the patience and compassion to work with special needs children then do not seek employment in a school system as a driver or assistant.
Those who believe children are safe from assault, bullying, and battery on a school bus are floating far down the river of denial without a paddle.

Apathetic disconcern for the well being of not only the children and the driver /monitors should be replaced with a proven mechanism that can document incidents of bullying, harassment, threats of death so that sociopathic cockroaches with no regard for others can be separated from those children willing to abide civil society.
