A Colorado bus driver, Bertram Jaquez, has been fired and charged with child abuse after video footage showed him slapping a young girl in the face. The crime the girl in question committed to warrant such savagery? Not properly wearing a mask. Sound familiar at all?
“I told him no, I get sick from masks,” the ten-year-old girl wrote in a statementregarding the incident. After explaining that other kids on the bus had joined the driver in berating her over mask usage, she said “I yelled at them and said you shut up you’re not involved in this and the bus driver slapped me.”
