Remember two weeks ago when a Louisiana school bus driver was accused of forcing 9-black students to sit in the back of her bus? Here is the latest: The Red River Parish School District has allowed Deloris Davis to retire with full benefits—as opposed to investigating the students' complaints that racial slurs were used and the initials "KKK" were scrawled across the bus.
The school board says that Davis' was merely confused on the first week of a new route. They also say that she has nearly 25-years of service without a blemish on her personnel record.
More on the "hearing." The meeting was deliberately held in a small room as opposed to a larger auditorium, thus preventing many from attending—even the town's mayor. The final vote was 4 to 3. CNN's Lou Dobbs Tonight, which has been covering the case for two weeks, said that three white school board members and one black voted "yes", two black members and one white said "no."
Reportedly after the vote, all of the board members were seen "sneaking out of the back entrance." We believe that.
