Snomocide or punks who were never taught to behave?

It's been on the news this morning about the bus driver at U of I who quit/was invited to quit after video hit YT of him running over a snowman a bunch of frat boys built in the middle of the road to screw with drivers after a snow storm.

The video the snowman builders shot is here..

Should the school be going after the "kids" too?

  • I am all for having some fun but that snowman could have been a danger to smaller cars and without a doubt to someone on a motor bike! They'd probably be dead...so YAY for the bus driver for smashing it down flat...IF anyone is going to be punished it should be the young boys.

  • Well, call me crazy, but I love nothing more than a good joke, or practical joke. This IS something my son would do. So, I think it is really all blown out of proportion, no harm done, pretty funny actually, if it snows here anytime soon me and my boy will be building a snowman in the middle of the road.

    Followed by the lawsuit when someone skids into a tree trying not to hit your snowman which, for all they know, has ice or rocks inside it.

  • So true NP and like I said I doubt these boys gave one thought to anyone who might come through on a motor bike..even a small rock in the way can have a biker flying over the bars and bouncing off the asphalt.

  • It was a road hazzard that the bus driver fixed. I do not see where he was wrong for this. If a small 4 door car had to go into it the driver would have been driving blind for at least a few mins because of it. And like a pp stated they have no way to know that there is not rocks or something else in the middle of it.
