Misguided altruism results in womans' sons beating.
Normally, parents must pay for their children to be provided with transportation to school in Franklin Township, Indiana. One woman campaigned to get the taxpayers to foot the bill. She wanted to help the black children who’s parents wouldn’t pay for them to ride the bus.
She was rewarded by having her own 14 year own son brutally beaten on the school bus. It happened on the first day of the new school year. Her son sat next to one of the new black riders and was immediately savagely beaten and hospitalized.
When Lora Hoagland was fighting to make buses to and from Franklin Township schools in Indiana free for all families, she didn't think her son's very trip to class would land him in the hospital.
It all started when Caleb Jones, 14, unwittingly sat in the seat of a violent classmate, 15, who decided to push, punch and berate when he did not get up while the bus was moving.
A video of the incident was posted on Facebook by the attacker, in which he bragged 'dat wassnt nun'.
Caleb ended up getting staples in his head and the boy, who is a minor, was arrested for battery and disorderly conduct as well as suspended from school.
