Bus Monitor Bullied

Outrage has erupted after a 10-minute viral video of Karen Huff Klein has surfaced. She was seen wiping away tears after being relentlessly name-called and threatened by middle school students. Watch her interview with TODAY below.

Karen Huff Klein, a bus monitor in the Greece Central School District in upstate New York suffered humiliating taunts and epithets. 

The YouTube video of the 68-year-old widow has been seen more than a million times.

District officials phoned police on June 20 after viewing the video. The students involved have been questioned and officials are debating whether to bring any formal charges.

In a June 21 interview with TODAY, Karen spoke about how she has never been this upset, that it took willpower not to retaliate.

“I want the boys punished, but I don’t know how,” she told interviewer Matt Lauer. “It made me feel really terrible, but I will get over it. I’ve gotten over everything else.”

She had strong words for the parents of the children who bullied her: “I’m sorry that your sons acted the way they did. I’m sure they don’t act that way at home, but you never know what they’re going to do when they’re out of the house.”

She added: “They should’ve been taught to respect their elders no matter who it is.”

In a happy turn of events, the Daily Mail reports that widespread reaction of the video has caused donors from across the country to raise more than $166,000 to give Karen the vacation she’s always dreamed of.

I hate this woman had to go through this by those miniature monsters. This but a small example of what teachers go through EVERYDAY. Children are rude and in many cases, dumb, but IT ALL BEGINS IN THE HOME.

Some of these comments are exactly what is wrong with our society, these bullies ARE NOT “kids”. They are young adults. In fact, is some jurisdictions they could be tried as an adult in court. QUIT making it sound like they are 8 year olds who don’t know any better.

I do accept as true with all the ideas you have offered on your post. They’re really convincing and can certainly work. Nonetheless, the posts are very brief for newbies. May you please extend them a little from next time? Thanks for the post.

What a shame that kids think that they can do this to someone! These kids are little crap heads and their parents are the ones to blame for this and the parents along with the kids should both be punished! I think that the kids should be punished legally because if they are not then this will happen again! CONSISTENCY is the word and if it doesn’t start happening now then we turn our world over to little monsters like these!

I was so disgusted by these “kids” that I couldn’t even finish watching the video. My heart goes out to Miss Karen. I wonder if these kids’ parents are going to spin this in the media to make their kids the victim, since that seems to be the popular thing to do, rather than take responsibility, own up to it, take the walk of shame. They have NO respect for anyone, including themselves. Nobody deserves this kind of abuse!
