Nine years ago, it was Kim Rossi (then Stagliano) viewing video of a bus attendant physically abusing her daughter. Almost a decade later, this abuse continues. One of my daughters "spits" when she has zinc issues and/or stomach pain and /or is trying to form a SOUND to communicate. She is not an angry camel projecting sputum to harm you. She is a disabled young woman trying to get through the day. Like Miss India Knox. I am so sorry for her family. I know the rage that erupts from the very source of your soul when you see evidence of your child coming to harm. It's visceral anger. To the attendant Mr. Valmont. You are a piece of merde.
School bus attendant is caught on camera attacking 13-year-old special needs girl and pushing her head into the seat in front because she 'spat at other students'
Shaheen and Alex Knox are suing Leesel Transportation Corporation and attendant Beleck Valmont over the incident on October 30. Their daughter, 13-year-old India Knox, is dependent on 24-hour medical assistance and has the mental capacity of a five-year-old. Valmont was seen on video violently shaking the girl - who weighs just 84lbs - as they rode to the Manhattan Children's Center. Justin Foster, the 34-year-old paraprofessional on the bus, said he filmed the altercation in order to protect India and the other children. The 48-year-old bus attendant claimed India had been spitting on other students. He has a daughter and has been working as a bus attendant for 13 years. Valmont was suspended and charged with six crimes including assault
NY Daily News reports:
Her parents said there’s nothing the 84-pound girl could’ve done to provoke Leesel Transportation Corp. attendant Beleck Valmont, who was captured on video shaking India by her head on the way to school. Another bus staffer, who was concerned by what he saw, shot cell phone footage of Valmont’s actions and notified school officials.
