Brickbat: Another One Rides the Bus



Video shows Stephanie Wilkerson, a driver with Florida's Hillsborough County School District, literally kicked an 8-year-old special needs student off her bus. The bus had stopped, and the girl asked to get off. Wilkerson told her to wait her turn, and the girl reportedly slapped and pushed her. So Wilkerson put her foot on the girl's back and pushed her out the door. The girl broke her ankle in the fall, and Wilkerson has been charged with aggravated child abuse.
