Censorship i agree with ur point,thats all im saying she didnt call when he was cursing out the kids,she didn't ask him to calm down, she never turned the bus around.she got up out her seat to go after a child that was cursing as he was leaving the bus,she placing the rest of youth in danger and that's alright. She had the aide fighting him and yelled for him to attack the kid and that's ok on the job?she never once called the police or the school and kept this mess going on knowing someone could of came and shot up the bus or more.... she was not thinking in the best interest of the other children at all. So if ur child or family member was on this bus can you honestly say the bus drivers behavoir was in the interest of the other children she was transporting? At anytime this could of gotton worst sighhhh....
The driver =fired, aide= fired,child=permenently kicked off the bus and suspended from school with a pending expulsion
There is no excuse for any of their behaviors involved

Well when u allow someone to make u lose control then you become their puppet. The boy knew how to pull her strings and he did just that. When he were disrespecting the children she should of thought about there safety then. All were wrong the child,the driver and the aide and all need to be disicipline.
THE TRUTH IS THE BUS DRIVER CAUSED THE SITUATION TO ESCALATE AND NEVER CALLED THE SCHOOL OR PLOICE UNTIL AFTER THE FACT..... TRUTH?

Only in youngstown you get the death penalty as being black for accidentally killing a child but you can be white throw down liter fluid block the door kill 4 black children and two adults and get a slap on the wrist for having a mental problem. The key word is INTENT here, that black boy made a mistake and my heart goes out to the childs family but he did not intend to kill the child. He is in prison for life and have to live with this horrific crime replaying in his mind. If it were black on black it wouldn't be such a big out cry.
I think the laws of sentencing is bias in ohio and that the newpaper itself is racist in its reporting the FACTS to the entire situation. If you are going to post a story go into court records,investigate and find out. Just because this is a black on white crime they just needed to hang someone and their negect to do things right will make past and future cases be challenged for not disclosing or allowing proper information to be presented. Learn the cases and all the stuff that goes along with it.
Did the white men who burned and killed the black real estate agent get the death penalty and why? Like I said there is bias in sentencing and preparation in caases and charges by OUR prosecutors who are WHITE people.
AGAIN BALLEW FAMILY I AM SORRY FOR YOUR LOST AND GOD WILL DEFINATELY REWARD YOU FOR FORGIVING THAT MAN. GOD DOES DO THINGS WE MAY NOT UNDERSTAND BUT Lay ALL YOUR BURDENS AT HIS FEET.
