Multiple teenagers were arrested after being suspected of attacking an elementary school bus in Georgia.
According to WSB-TV, an 18-year-old non-student was arrested along with two middle school students and one high school student for storming a school bus on Hollyhock Terrace in Decatur on Monday. They are facing assault charges, and one child was taken to the hospital after the teens attacked. The condition of the child is not known.
The incident took place a mere mile from Snapfinger Elementary School. The school left parents a voicemail message that: “During the morning ride to school, a group of middle and high school student boarded the bus to assault an elementary school student.” The reason why the teens stormed the bus is unknown at this time.
Parents were rightfully upset, especially after they learned about the incident at the end of the school day. “That is outrageous,” Alexis Clarke, a parent, told the Atlanta-based news outlet. “I think that's really bad and, if they did beat up some elementary school students, they definitely deserve to go to jail."
“This is my kid's second week at school. This is ridiculous," another parent, Latrice Lewis, said. "This is why I don't have my kids on the bus, I drive them to school. And I drive them back home."
In March, a school bus driver in Pennsylvania told the kids she was driving to school to "go fuck yourselves" and abandoned the bus at a gas station. She was charged with a DUI and 26 counts of endangering the welfare of children.
