Emmett School Bus Driver Reportedly Abuses Special Needs Child [VIDEO]
A 9-year-old boy with a sensory perception disorder was allegedly physically and verbally abused by his bus driver.
According to Idaho News, the incident took place on April 12th in the parking lot of Shadow Butte Elementary School. The boy's mother, Jennifer Harvey, learned of the alleged abuse and asked to see footage from the bus' camera system which is in place for the safety and protection of both the students and bus drivers. It took weeks for Harvey to finally get that video and when she did, she immediately filed a police report.
In the video, you can see the child walk back to his seat and sit down. The bus driver immediately becomes angry approaching the child up close and screaming things like, "I don't care if I hurt you." The bus driver also picked up the 9-year-old by his backpack and dropped him onto the floor. Authorities are investigating.
