Karen Klein, School Bus Monitor, Harassed By Mean Kids; Internet Responds With Paid Vacation

by at . Comments

This video encapsulates the best and worst of human behavior.

Yesterday, the world got to see a group of idiot 12-15 year-old kids verbally abusing a 69-year-old bus monitor in Greece, N.Y. named Karen Klein.

Like, really badly. To the point that she cried.

The worst comment one kid made? "You are so ugly, your kids should kill themselves." Klein's son apparently did take his own life 10 years ago.

Depressing as it gets. But now, the redeeming part.

According to Mashable, irate users on Reddit, 4chan, YouTube and elsewhere decided to support Klein ... and not by offering bullying services to give the kids a taste of their own medicine (although we'll get to that in a moment).

Not even 24 hours later, more than $9,000 has been raised online to send the harassed Karen on the vacation of a lifetime! How great is that?

Enjoy it, Karen ... and get ready to reap what you sowed, kids.

There's already a Facebook group dedicated to opposing them, and local police are considering stationing officers outside their homes for fear of retribution.

UPDATE, 6/22: Klein has received a staggering $440,000 in donations - not a typo - and more importantly, an apology from two of the bullies.

So much for the whole anti-bulling campaign huh? I wonder how much has been spent on that so far. But you know who's to blame....the parents of these kids. They have failed their kids in doing their job of raising them to be productive and decent members of society.

I saw your interviw on FOX and I have to say, don't take this lightly!!! This is a disgrace!!! You seem such a good hearted person, please don't let these kids get away with this. The parents should be held accountable as well. Who raises monsters like this?

I agree, any action Karen took would make headlines. Bus monitor beats innocent angelic 12 year olds. Pictures of these children as infants would plaster the news. So instead she just took it. The parents should be held accountable. If one of my kids did this they would pray the cops make it there before me. Teach your kids respect!!

@ Mom. There was once a day any given person would stop the Bus- drag that little Fu*ker out to the curb by his " Shorthairs" and whip his ass with their belt! But now the poor liberal shits have decided to spare the rod because that would be cruel. Now this is what you have! This and a Lawyer waiting to represent any troublemaker that feels mistreated. While protecting the assholes rights we have failed to protect the real victim. I say fu*k it- Drag the little bitch out by the ear anyway and beat his ass till you get sleepy. Then Lawyer up!

These animal kids must be punished as soon as possible....for what they did to this nice lady.
12 and 13 year old scumbags bulling with mean words...without having an ounce of respect for her.Their day will come for sure.Their parents are also responsible for what happened on the bus.If i was her...i will press charges against all of them.I do feel sorry for them...because one day they will suffer the consequences for what they did .Someone else will bully them ...making them SUFFER like they did with Karen Klein.
Please Karen...press charges against them....they must learn.
I was also bullied years ago.....i had my satisfaction.....these kids are losers now.....divorces...drugs....jail etccc...

First of all, what power does a school bus monitor have? She cannot take their camera phones away: she cannot hustle them to the front of the bus and kick their butts off. She would be fired if she touched them in any way and THEY KNOW IT. The greatest justice will be 40 yrs from now when they are overweight and bald. Maybe then they will feel some remorse. Until then, there needs to be a punishment that suits the crime, hurts their position with their peers, takes away extra curricular activities and THEIR PHONES, and submits them for counseling for a year. The parents need the same counseling and the school system needs to give more power to the monitors.

These bad bastards need their asses kicked until they pass out! What is wrong with these kids? That poor woman looked like a caged animal.....frightened and sad. I hope every wicked kid is identified and punished accordingly. This is a prime example of why corporal punishment should be reinstated in schools. Karen should've pepper-sprayed all of them, or at least smacked the doofus kid behind her.
