I notice in the pictures that he is shackled and manacled. Is he a flight risk?
Is he a danger to the people in the court? Is that really needed? Like the
other posters, the evidence seems to be a little flimsy, and even if he is
aquitted, his life is still in ruins because no one will ever publish an apology
or be willing to give this guy a job driving a school bus again.
I was one of those who was on the band wagon to lock this guy up and throw away
they key... now after more comes out (not saying he is innocent by any means),
it looks like flimsy evidence?I would think the film would show
blatant abuse or not(color, sound, assume HD). The drivers KNEW they were being
filmed/recorded... doesn't make a lot of sense to me.Makes me
sick to think this guys life was ruined over possible nothing!I have
a son who wants to be a teacher, it makes me nervous and I want to advise him to
take a different path.
looks like the prosecutor should be given an Emmy. To destroy someones life on
such flimsy evidence. This looks more like some politically motivated witch
hunt. Over-reach by prosecutors is the number one problem with our justice
system.Also obvious extreme overreaction by all parties. These people should by
held to a higher standard.These out-of-control prosecutors should be brought to
the attention of the board. They are seeing Bears when they are puppy dogs and
lions when they are kittens.There need to be some way to hold these responsible
for the many Civil Rights violations and over-prosecutions by their office.
