4 Yeshiva Students Charged With Harassing Black Bus Driver

NEW YORK (CBS 2) — Four New Jersey Yeshiva students have been charged with bias intimidation after being accused of harassing a black school bus driver.

The driver told Lakewood Police that the teenagers praised the Ku Klux Klan, then crowded behind her in a threatening manner as she was driving on Tuesday.

The NAACP called the situation disturbing.

“To me, it’s sad. Here we are in the 21 st Century, and we have this kind of intimidation going on,” Jim Waters, president of the Ocean County NAACP, said.

The Yeshiva also filed a complaint against the driver, saying that the driver acted inappropriately.

The driver has been moved to another route while the investigation takes place.

Residents said it was a complete shock and that they need more details to have the full story.

“I’m extremely surprised. It’s totally out of character for the boys in this school, and until we hear what their side of the story is, it’s difficult to comment,” one man said.

    David Berkowitz was a bad Jew. Abramhoff was another bad Jew. Madoff , though, is the killer. He should be shot. L’Chaim!

    WELCOME, WE LIVE IN 21ST CENTURY AS LONG AS HE IS NOT A BLACK GUY, OR MUSLIM, HE CAN GET OUT WITH OR WITHOUT BAIL/BONDS.

  3. Kate says:

    The extremely unlikely thing is that the students are accused of praising the KKK. As the students must know, the KKK hated Jews as viciously as they hated blacks, Catholics, and anyone from the Mediterranean. In 1922 the KKK lynched a Greek teenager in Georgia, as “non-white.”

    Holier than thou? That’s what it sounds like to me. Orthodox Jewish children are incapable of such an act? Wow … wow ….

    Orthodox Jews don’t commit criminal acts? Have we already forgotten about Solomon Dwek? Not only did he commit the crimes, when he got busted he snitched on everyone to save his own butt.

    These attitudes are as ignorant as those of the anti-semites. Every human (Jews included) are capable of such acts. End of story.

  5. Ronit says:

    It is unheard that such a thing can happen, Jewish children are brought up knowing what happened to us before during and after WWll and we also never do to others what was done to us!
