They're probably already drawing lots to see who gets to be his room mate in prison.

One more to add to the "Greece Wing" of the jail. Do they still have room for Johnnie?

The sicko got off light.They should have executed him. The victims have to live with what he did to them for the rest of thier lives.They should have ended his.

Oh, come on. A little "rehab" and he'll be just fine! (That's what everyone else does.)

There should be a guideline that no one adult is alone with any one child. If there are more children fine, but not one on one. To protect the children from abuse and the professionals from false accusations. There are witnesses. It would not absolutely prevent all instances but it might have prevented this one. The only sentry was the video camera feed that no one looks at unless there are allegations of violence and abuse.
No one ever said where the bus driver was in this case. Why was the abuser on a bus with single children for long enough to abuse? Will Greece consider changing anything in light of this? Possible cameras in every setting? It is not impossible. The classroom would be a fine place to start. Maybe the test scores would improve.
We have had 3 cases recently of some inappropriate behavior with children: the westridge school teacher, the marching band leader and this latest one. You know how predators look for vulnerable women to date with children already in place to abuse. Maybe Greece is the place where we are asleep at the wheel and the predators are attracted. They are very resourceful and share information.
It is very simple for the headline to say former bus aide but Greece school district is responsible for this atrocity in great percentage. Those 4 families will have their day in civil court too since our system failed these children.

This is sick that he only received 7 years. So he has to register as a sex offender. What does that do? There is one within .64 miles of a elemtary school in Greece (Autumn Lane) and there is also one living at an apartment complex (behind Kohl's). Do parents know about him? Then the district gave me slack 4 years ago when I disliked that my daughter was on the bus alone with a male bus driver and a male bus aide alone for 5 minutes. They assured me there was a camera. Did that really inhibit this pig from doing this. nope...... Needless to say we need to do what is right for the kids and our own! Be more strict in who drives our kids to school. One male and one female on the bus may not inhibit it from happening all together but reduces the chances!!
