Bullied bus monitor thankful for support, pleas for threats to stop | The Lookout – Yahoo! News
All bullied bus monitor Karen Klein wanted was an apology. Now she’s getting that … and then some.
Police say the four boys who tormented the 68-year-old on a school bus in upstate New York earlier this week have taken responsibility for their actions. They are also saying they’re sorry.
An online campaign to fund a vacation for Klein had grown to nearly $500,000 by Friday morning, far surpassing the initial $5,000 goal. Max Sidorov, the Toronto man who started the fund two days ago, said he did so partly because he was bullied himself as a child.
