A petition supporting a French bus driver who faces disipline for slapping a 12-year-old boy who ran into the street has gained more than 300,000 signatures as of Friday, reports said.
The bus driver was forced to “sharply hit the brakes and rough up customers inside” to avoid striking the boy Sept. 13 in the Greater Paris area, the petition said, according to Euronews.com. The driver also yelled at the boy to pay attention, to which the 12-year-old yelled back, “Shut up, go on, move on,” the BBC reported.
