Greece, NY — A school bus monitor in New York has decided to not press charges against a group of teenagers who taunted and bullied her on the bus.
A video of the incident went viral on the Internet, sparking an outpouring of support for Klein, and anger and embarrassment for the town of Greece, New York.
Police there say Klein wants the school district to hand out any discipline.
She has decided she is very happy with the route the case is going, through the school district.
An online fund has been created to send Karen Klein on vacation.
The goal was to raise 5-thousand dollars, but as of Thursday afternoon, the fund surpassed 246-thousand dollars. The fundraising website can be found here:
