The Florida girl, unnamed due to legal reasons, was eating candy on the way home from the Fort Myers’ Royal Palm School yesterday when the bus driver asked her to stop doing so. Not an unfair request in my books. The rules are the rules. But instead of packing her sweeties away in her school bag, she instead went on a tirade against bus driver, Robert Middleton. There’s nothing quite like having respect for your elders, eh? But the fun and games didn’t end there. After threatening the other kids on the bus, the classy fourth-grader then spat on Middleton as she exited the bus. When outside the busshe then continued her verbal tirade against the driver while throwing asphalt into the vehicle.
“F— you! F— you!” she yelled, “Shut the f— up. I will f—–‘ kill you.”
What a lovely wee lass. When Lee County police arrived on the scene, instead of her simmering down things just became more escalated. She is said to have hurled an “aluminum patio chair” at one of the deputies then continued on with her verbal tirade. A cop then restrained the child but the girl attempted to bite his arm, yelling “I am going to kill you, get off of me!”
It’s reported that this tiny-terror has been charged with battery on a public school employee, resisting arrest with violence, battery on a law enforcement officer, and throwing missiles into an occupied vehicle.
What a little bugger. There is a right way to bring kids up and there’s a wrong way. I think the parents have clearly let this child down. There’s absolutely no excuse for this behaviour. However I’m in no way defending the actions of this little scoundrel. We should all take blame for our own actions, and it’s plain to see this little girl might possibly be a lost cause. Was she acting in a way that she might have seen played out in a movie? Perhaps. Whatever the reason, somebody needs to step in and nip this in the bud. Otherwise, she’s going to be a lost cause.
The girl was released into her parent’s custody last night and placed on home detention for 21 days.
