Woman Fired After Slamming Child Against School Bus Window

The head of a company that handles bus transportation for a southwestern Michigan school district says "it was totally wrong" for an employee to physically slam a boy inside the vehicle.
Ed Dollin says Heidi Mullin was fired after the incident Wednesday in the Galesburg-Augusta school district, about 50 miles southeast of Grand Rapids.
A video taken by a student and posted online shows a 7-year-old being slammed into the side of the bus by Mullin. Dollin, president of Cincinnati-based Auxilio, says the child had a pattern of extreme behavior on the bus, but he adds that's no excuse for what happened.
Mullin could not be reached for comment Friday. Her phone number was unlisted. Dollin said Mullin's job was to reduce rough behavior on the bus, not aggravate it.

    That is what needed to be done to her, there is no excuse for that. This hopefully will send a wake up call to these people who think that is ok to do to children. She ought to have to do some jail time also for assault.
