Incident on Lakewood bus: 4 teen boys accused of bias intimidation of their school bus driver

Asbury Park Press

Four teenagers were arrested Tuesday night and charged with bias intimidation of their bus driver after praising the Ku Klux Klan during the ride home from school, township police confirmed.

The four boys, all about 15 years old, are accused of crowding behind their black female school bus driver after she objected to their conversation, during which they used racial slurs about the KKK's violence against blacks, Lt. Paul Daly of the Lakewood police said.

"They stood behind her instead of being seated," Daly said Thursday. "She felt intimidated."

They boys were arrested on the bus and released later into the custody of their parents.[...]


  1. Religious Jews praising the KKK?? If true, the absolute cluelessness of these kids is just mind-boggling. It makes me shudder to think that they may have heard adult members of their community speaking in this way.

  2. Just to add to how pathetic that scene is, realize these boys' shalsheles hamesorah flows through R' Yisrael Salanter, the Alter of Kelm, the Alter of Slabodka, through R' Aharon Kotler to their fathers and/or rabbeim...


    So, we can assume that 15 yr olds went through years of middos programs in the first part of grade school. So, what should we have been doing that we didn't?
