    I haven't been keeping up with this story, but from what I have read, it seems to me this man was a HERO. He saved this woman from possible death hersself and now he is being punished for it. I think this is twisted. Maybe he did use a little too much force on the other man, but still......

    i think that anyone that drive any kind of bus school or public should have to have the physcals required. to just ket students or teacher just drive a bus carring or children of any age is just dangerous and this bus accident should be proof enough!!

    I hope who ever brought charges on this man finds thereself in this same predicament one day with the victim being his wife, daughter, or mother. What is this world coming to. People like this will make people who see stuff like this happening not do anything, just keep right on going !!!!!

    Well, if the guy was beating on the woman, then I thank the man for taking care of him.
