Police said Thursday that criminal charges will not be filed over the harassment of a bus monitor at the hands of four Greece Athena middle school students.
The incident in Greece, New York,just outside of Rochester, has caused worldwide outrage.
According to police, 68-year-old Karen Klein was working as a bus attendant for the Greece Central School District on the next-to-last day of school. Cell-phone video shows Klein being verbally attacked, poked, and taunted during the bus ride. The 10-minute long video, taken by a student, was later posted online. The video spread through social media, shocking and angering people around the world.
A website with the goal of raising $5,000 to send Klein on a vacation is approaching $500,000 in donations. Police, school, and local government officials updated the situation Thursday afternoon.
Four seventh graders have been identified as the aggressors. Police said that one of the students under investigation was recording the incident.
