Bullied Bus Monitor Senior Citizen Inspires More Than $300K in Donations

The kids were disgusting and America is responding by donating a huge sum of money to the bullied 68-year old bus monitor:
A video of a 68-year-old school bus monitor mercilessly taunted by seventh graders became an international online rallying point against bullies Thursday, with a fund for the Rochester, N.Y., grandmother raising at least $290,000 and a deluge of people demanding harsh punishment for the boys.

Police said Karen Klein does not want her young tormenters to face criminal charges, partly because of the storm of criticism leveled at the boys from the Rochester suburb of Greece after the video went viral.

"They've received death threats," Greece Police Capt. Steve Chatterton said Thursday. "Their families have been threatened. We have custody of one of their cellphones, and he had over 1,000 missed calls and 1,000 text messages threatening him. And he's 13 years old. That must stop."
I just looked at the campaign site and donations have surpassed $309,000. Iowahawk has an idea for her:
I hope the bus monitor lady buys a Ferrari, spins donuts in the Junior High parking lot, and flips off those loathsome little pricks.
Apparently the kids themselves took this video and posted it to a social network site. One thing about Facebook, Twitter and other sites, they seem to be a great tool for stupid people to expose their stupidity to the world.

And there are those who like to point out stupidity, a point not understood by the stupid.

Or clueless.
