Kind of crazy I think. Article The students were yelling that this kid had a knife. The bus driver acts accordingly. (to what he thinks is corrective action) He was fired for not following protocol. So what is the school protocol ? Pull over and wait until the police show up ? What if the kid had went nuts and started slashing other students ? What, you just sit there and wait because that's protocol, waiting on the cops to make an appearance ? Oh, by the way ... So if kids are not allowed to carry knives on the bus, (as per Gadd stated), where did the bus driver go wrong then ? Does the bus driver have a case ?
