Brickbat: Think of the Children
The security video from the Manatee County, Florida, school bus shows Anabelle Hunting, 5, crying as another student repeatedly slaps her and pulls her hair and other students throw a plush toy belonging to Hunting around the bus. But bus aide D'Mari Martin does nothing to stop the bullying of Hunting, who reportedly suffers from developmental delays and a communications disorder. Instead, she's more intent on finding her missing phone. The school system did not notify Hunting's mother of the attack for over a week and charged her $60 for a copy of the video.
