Bus Driver Who Slapped A 10-Year-Old Girl

A school bus driver in Colorado has been fired after he slapped a 10-year-old girl for refusing to wear a face mask.

Bertram Jaquez was driving children on April 12 in Fremont County, Colorado, when a young girl refused to wear a face mask.

A written statement from the girl alleged that she told her classmates that she was not going to wear a face mask because it made her sick.

The girl said in her note that people kept telling her to put her mask on, and that she shouted at them and said to shut up and that they weren’t involved in this.

The video of the scene shows the bus driver then striking her across the face.

Bertram Jaquez, in a written statement acquired by KKTV, said that he was attempting to explain to the child why she needed to wear a mask and that she simply wouldn’t listen, shouting at him and the other girls, and he wrote that out of reaction, he hit the child once.

The girl then put her mask on and ran out of the bus once it reached its stop. Bertram Jaquez was fired two days later, on April 14.

A school district spokesperson said an internal investigation determined that his actions warranted termination of employment.

The spokesperson said that their school community is experiencing a pretty unfortunate situation, and the spokesperson said that they’ve had a bus driver hit a child over the child not wearing a mask on the bus, and they believe that it’s never okay to lay a hand on a child.

The spokesperson said that they’re extremely disheartened by the incident, but that their goal every day is to transport students safely to school and back home, but that can only happen when everyone, including students and staff, follows the rules.

The spokesperson said that they’re currently working to identify the next step to help their operators with strategies designed to support a safe ride to and from school.

Face masks in schools have become a flashpoint for communities across the country, in addition to the broader issue of homeschooling.

Virtually all students have had remote learning at some point over the past year, but various states have taken dramatically divergent approaches to reopen classrooms.

Parents have been constantly urging schools to reopen, given the challenges of juggling work with homeschooling, and the mental health impact for their children of being isolated, and people are saying that if it had been their child, they’d have pressed assault charges.

And why did it take two days to fire a bus driver for hitting a ten-year-old girl across the face? And why has he not been arrested yet?

However, it appears that we’ve become such a hysterical society due to the perpetual fear-mongering about masks, encouraged by the media, and it seems that we’re not that fundamentally different from the people who used to accuse others of witchcraft only a few centuries ago.

Of course, now, masks and vaccines are dividing more and more into ‘us’ and ‘them’, and now it appears that children are being taught that it’s okay to bully over this matter, and this is what the pandemic has produced.

Perhaps the bus driver would have been better off with a different approach to this rebellious child. Maybe he should have simply stopped the bus and refused to continue until compliance was met.

My vision on life is pretty broad, therefore I like to address specific subjects that intrigue me. Therefore I really appreciate the world of politics, though I have no actual views on who I will vote for, that I will not tell you, so please do not ask! I am like an observation station when it comes to writing, and I simply take the news and make it my own. I have no expectations, I simply love to write, and I know this seems really odd, but I don't get paid for it, I really like what I do and since I am never under any pressure, I constantly find that I write much better, rather than being blanketed under masses of paperwork and articles that I am on a deadline to complete. The chances are, that whilst all other journalists are out there, ripping their hair out, attempting to get their articles completed, I'm simply rambling along at my convenience creating my perfect piece. I guess it must look pretty unpleasant to some of you that I work for nothing, perhaps even brutal. Perhaps I have an obvious disregard for authority, I have no idea, but I would sooner be working for myself, than under somebody else, excuse the pun! Small I maybe, but substantial I will become, eventually. My desk is the most chaotic mess, though surprisingly I know where everything is, and I think that I would be quite unsuited for a desk job. My views on matters vary and I am extremely open-minded to the stuff that I write about, but what I write about is the truth and getting it out there, because the people must be acquainted. Though I am quite entertained by what goes on in the world. My spotlight is mostly to do with politics, though I do write other material as well, but it's essentially politics that I am involved in, and I tend to concentrate my attention on that, however, information is essential. If you have information the possibilities are endless because you are only limited by your own imagination...
