Watch Who You Give The Finger

April 30th, 2009 by admin


A man who allegedly boarded a school bus outside East Bank Middle School and smacked a 14-year-old student should never have been allowed on the bus in the first place, Kanawha school officials said Wednesday.

Kanawha Superintendent Ron Duerring said administrators would follow through on any disciplinary actions that might be deemed necessary against the bus driver, but would not go into detail, citing personnel matters.

Duerring said only students, school staff and passengers permitted for some trips, like chaperones, are allowed on school buses.

“Other than that, we shouldn’t have anybody entering our buses,” he said.

State Police say Joshua Shawn Beaver, 25, of Pratt, followed the school bus from Crown Hill to the parking lot at East Bank Middle School.

Beaver said students on the bus flashed the middle finger at him. On the bus surveillance video, Beaver asked the bus driver if he wanted to know which students flashed their middle finger.

“Yeah,” the driver said.

Kanawha County Schools Transportation Director George Beckett did not identify the bus driver Wednesday, and said he was not sure he could.

Beaver walked onto the bus. He looked back at the students and said, “come here” to one, then told other children who were standing, “excuse me,” as he began to walk toward the back of the bus.

The bus driver took off his seat belt and walked toward Beaver.

Beaver saw one of the students on the bus and confronted him. Video shows the bus driver stood next to Beaver as this happened.

“Remember my name now: It’s Josh Beaver,” he told the student. “I appreciate you flipping me off all the way down the road.”
