Would You Be Outraged If Your Child Was Kicked Out Of School For Farting?

Dad James Nichols is! His 13-year-old son Anthony and a pal were suspended following a flatulence outbreak on a school bus.

The gassy pair was banned for a day after Canal Winchester Middle School vice principal Daniel Senu-Oke decided their flatulent attack was an “obscene gesture” and broke the school’s code of conduct. Is this funny or what?

James Nichols describes the punishment as “laughable,” adding, “He suggested my son should hold his gas on this hour long bus ride, if in fact he has gas.

“When it happens, it just happens It’s not intentional.”

To add insult to injury, Anthony‘s mom has only recently been hospitalized with a gastric illness, and is particularly offended by the punishment.

The bus driver who reported Anthony and his unnamed partner in crime claims he’d warned them in the past about their intestinal outbursts — which regularly caused a rumpus among classmates.

Nobody likes a stinky bus — but is it a step too far HollyMoms? How would you feel?

They probably weren’t farting but doing what we used to call a raspberry. They were doing this more than likely to get a response not only from the other kids on the bus but from the driver. In defense of the driver, don’t judge him until you have driven a bus like I have. Your job is to watch out for danger out of the front window and outside of the bus. These kids were causing an issue behind him diverting his attention there. That is a safety issue. The other kids were more than likely laughing loudly and yelling and turning around to see the commotion. To get out of the safety cushion zone designed in the bus seat (since there are no seat belts to hold them in), exposes them to danger to their heads, necks and backs should the driver have to swerve or stop suddenly not to mention if they fall on other students causing more injuries. I would venture to guess that they were warned repeatedly by the driver and he had no other choice but to cite them for the violation of failure to obey the driver’s instructions and in this case more than likely on more than one occasion or more than one day. I would have given them suspension from the bus for a day or up to a week but not school suspension. Drive a bus a little and see what they have to put up with. Most people say that they could not do it since they know what a child is capable of doing.
