"School Bus Driver Accused Of Pinching Girl's Nose"

Hmm. I wonder what damages this man will claim.

SAN ANTONIO -- The father of a 7-year-old girl is threatening to sue a Judson Independent School District bus driver for allegedly pinching his daughter's nose.

Anastasia Mireles, who attends Coronado Village Elementary School, said that the bus driver pinched her after the children in the bus got rowdy. ...

An investigation into the incident continues and Judson officials will decide if further action is needed, although the driver will probably not be terminated, Hoffman said.

But Benjamin Mireles said the driver has no business driving a school bus and plans to file assault charges.

Assault? For a pinch on the nose? Assuming the incident did happen, I can't help but feel that Mr. Mireles is overreacting. A reprimand might be in order for the bus driver, depending on the circumstances (which I admittedly do not know the details of), but I think a lawsuit is a bit strong right out of the gate.

This is the Gentleman to whom this letter pertains and I will let you know this: There were more than 6 incidents including one with my nephew being pushed by the same bus driver into a window and I can only tell you that if you would allow someone to touch your kids, then you are no parent at all. If you allow people to take care of your kids and be able to do what they wish, you are no parent. But if you stick up for what is right and protect our children from people like this, then you become a parent. Just to let you know, HE WAS FIRED SOON AFTER this aired because he had done it again. So you can stick your comment where the sun don't shine.
