    Fits the description! And more importantly, fits the crime.
    If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude than the animated contest of freedom, go from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains sit lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen.

    Well we could bring back the stocks and then rent paintball guns to shoot at her. That would make it about guns...

    HAhahaha, I read about this shortly after it happened. There's a thread about it on here somewhere. Judging the character of the driver and her mother strictly by the news articles, I think this does a MUCH better job than any fine she could have been given.

    For people who didn't get to read the original article, the woman did this SO frequently that it was the bus driver who decided to tape her. And they were loading/unloading a special needs child with a wheelchair, which is why the stop was longer than usual.

    Ha Ha, sentence was much too short. Should have been every morning, and every evening for a week, or longer. I have driven a school bus, and when these violators get reported the judicial system usually tosses the sentence, and lets the offender out to do it again, and again.
