68-year-old Karen Klein, a school bus monitor in upstate New York gets BULLIED by little asshole school kids on school bus

Fundraising efforts yield 6-figure bonanza for bullied bus monitor in viral video, Matt Lauer calls tormenters ‘narrow-minded monsters’

Overwhelming support mounted for 68-year-old Karen Klein, a school bus monitor in upstate New York. The clip, recorded on one of the bully’s cell phones, shows Klein being mercilessly tormented by students on the bus home.

Explosive fundraising efforts have reached $150,000 — and still climbing — for a woman who’s seen being heartlessly harassed and verbally abused by school bus bullies in a viral video.

Overwhelming support mounted for 68-year-old Karen Klein, a school bus monitor in upstate New York, after a cell phone video of the cruel treatment was posted online.

“I saw the video and really felt for Karen,” Max Sidorov, who set up the site where donations are being collected, told USA Today. “I have some experience with bullying from when I was young and what they were doing to her was just heartbreaking. The best thing I could think to do was start a fundraiser to send her on vacation.”

On the fundraising website, the figure on Karen’s page hit more than $100,000 on Thursday morning continued to rapidly increase — far more than Sidorov expected.

“It’s just huge,” the Toronto nutritionist said. “I thought it would get a few thousand dollars, maybe. But maybe she could retire on this.”

The page notes that Klein “doesn’t earn nearly enough ($15,606) to deal with some of the trash she is surrounded by.”

Klein, a widow, has worked for the Greece Central School District for more than two decades. She was a bus driver for 20 years, and has been a bus monitor for the past three years.

More than 1 million people have viewed the 10-minute video since it was uploaded to YouTube less than two days ago.

The clip, recorded on one of the bully’s cell phones, shows Klein being mercilessly tormented by students on the bus home from Athena Middle School in Greece, N.Y.

Some of the comments are particularly disturbing — at one point, a student tells Klein that if he stabbed her in the stomach, the knife would go through like butter, because “it’s all f---n’ lard.”

Another student asks her if she has an STD.

Klein, whose oldest son committed suicide 10 years ago, told ABC affiliate WHAM in Rochester that the most hurtful comment came when students said her family should kill themselves.

As the taunting continues, Klein tears up but says little, trying to ignore the cruel comments.

Klein, who appeared Thursday on “Good Morning America” and the “Today” show, told ABC News she won’t resign from her job as bus monitor.

“That’s not like me,” she said. “I’m not a real vindictive person. I just know I want something to happen to make them [the students\] realize what they did.”


On “Today” Thursday morning, Matt Lauer called the students “narrow-minded monsters,” and said that their parents should be ashamed.

Greece police have interviewed the students involved and are conducting an investigation.

School district officials say the students will be disciplined. (Right, like a 5 minute time out?)

Cannot believe the appalling behavior of these monsters. You wonder why society is spiralling downward, look no further than your spawn. These parents obviously failed at one of their most important jobs, teaching your children RESPECT. This is definitely a reflection on the upbringing of these spoiled punks.
Expel everyone of those who made physical threats and suspend the rest and maybe the parents will step up and do their job, PARENT!

Let me have a couple moments with these punks and watch how quickly their attitudes will change...what a bunch of pussies fucken with the elderly....our court system sucks too cause if they get arrested all they will get is 1pt for bad behavior and a note that will say don't do that again!

I could not believe the way these so-called children tormented this 68 y/o grandmother. I would like to know what the school bus driver was doing during this verbal attack. If I was the driver, I would have pulled the bus over, written down all the names of the bullies and went right to the principal's office when they got to school. The parents of these children need to know this kind f behavior will not be tolerated and formal charges should be brought against these children and their parents as well. There is no place for this kind of behavior in our society. Parents need to know they can and should be held responsible for the actions of their kids. They should have been suspended immediately and the police should have been notified.

This is what happens when you send your kids to a public school. Never trust the government especially when it involves your children.

That reporter from CBS is Erica Hill!

Shit, she used to be on TechTV (no longer a network) way back before 9/11... Fuck!

I would run up inside of her and we'd both enjoy it. She is a cutie.

Man, to see some small time cable channel babe move on to CNN and then on to networks. Decade of progress there. Good for her, that is nice to see.

Bet you she is sleeping her way to the top. One news chick is pretty much like the next talent wise. Ha!

Oh yeah, fuck those kids who are being mean to granny! Shit heads!

Still, granny you are not a mute! Speak out. Give those punks a retort! An attack deserves a riposte; verbal ones not excluded.

this is also what happens when you raise your kids like the liberals want you to. NO discipline, no spankings, no beatings. Be political correct. The world is fair and balanced. Only "time outs" are given. When I was growing up and pulled some shit like that to a family member, person,or a cop...Shit the beatings would STILL be going on to this day. get out of pocket and you were put right back in with a quick crack to the face.

Now this poor lady who probably loves doing her job being around and helping kids, has to suffer because of these lil animals. Beatings til they are fucking black and blue when your done beat the parents the same way, even more so!
God Bless this woman!

They should post the names of every one of those punks that were involved, humility has a way of improving parents attitude.
Best part of the job was facing the blowhard father of pukes like this. Loved taking away his manhood in front of his kids and old lady.

A couple of generations ago, bad acting kids had to endure corporal punishment, administered by their fathers. They were told to sit up straight, pull up their pants, call older people Mr. or Mam. Women have neutered the men and kids act as they want.

The disintegration of society unfolding before our eyes. Start stocking up on supplies because we don't have much time left. The writing is on the wall all over the place. We are fucking doomed.

If I mouthed off like that my father would walk up to her say he was mortified and sorry, then proceed to spank the crap out of me as she watched.

Where are the parents of these little Bastards? If Grandma had slapped one of the cocksuckers they would be there with the cops and their lawyer looking for money. These appear to be White kids taunting this woman. What will the school do about this? Nothing. What they all need is a good fucking beating. That might help. Never happen. Bad enough these little pricks go after their own classmates and now they go after old people. Fucking shamefull.

Jesus,me and my buddies were big assholes as kids,maybe still are,but we never would have pulled shit like this cause my father would have beat me so bad he may have killed me,and rightfully so.Little jag-offs.

Sounds like a nigger behind the cell phone camera.

The good Grandma has already had over $450,000 donated to her. And of course the little arrogant rotten rat Bastards who taunted her are sooooo sorry for what they did. They say it won't happen again. Perhaps by cutting their fucking tongues out of their dirty little mouths would guarantee that. The kids and their parents should all be euthanized at once. Fuck these dirty assholes.

Probably the offspring of police officers who taunted that old woman and posted that video...proud white people all of them!

On a good note . There is a site that has raised nearly $500K, for this woman. Grannie was making about $15k a year to put up with these miserable, little, should have been aborted, bastards. now she can go on and live those "golden years".

I know this is going to piss everyone off but why the fuck is she getting paid 15000 a year. Another example of government waste. The kids should be expelled and she should be fired and the position eliminated.
