On Friday afternoon, fifth grader Gladys Parker was on the A6 bus on her way home from school. The bus had gotten to an area about a block from her home when the driver hit the brakes. “When he threw on brakes, everybody fell to the window and I bumped a teenager,” says Parker. “I told her sorry, but she just cursed me out and everything.” Not only did the teen start yelling and screaming at Parker, but the verbal attack turned physical. “That’s when she hit me and pulled me off the bus and beat me up, hit my head on the concrete,” Parker says. During the entire incident, she says none of the people on the bus, including the driver, did anything to stop the attack.
