Utah bus driver traps boy in bus doors and drives off: lawsuit

Published

on

Utah bus driver John Naisbitt “quietly” resigned after facing multiple accusations after he discriminated against minority students.

A 14-year-old student got caught in the doors while exiting the school bus, and Naisbitt continued to drive for another 150 feet before stopping.

“While students yelled at the driver to stop — the man pulled over again in front of West Point Junior High in northern Utah and opened the doors, dropping the boy on the sidewalk and allowing the rest of the kids in line to shuffle out,” a report from Salt Lake Tribune explained. “The boy, a seventh grader, was the only student of color on the bus.”

The boy’s mom, Brenda Mayes, is suing Naisbitt for racial discrimination. The mom has video evidence of the situation.

“It appears that the driver intentionally shuts the doors as he goes through, snapping the boy’s backpack between them, and moving forward as he hangs outside,” the report said.

“I think that race likely played a part in the incident,” Mayes told the school district.

“We deeply regret the actions of our employee and will be addressing this issue with urgency,” Superintendent Reid Newey responded.

With Trump appearing in New Mexico on Monday night, Politico reports the president has his work cut out for him in a state that saw the GOP lose the governorship and one House seat in 2018.

"The Land of Enchantment has voted for a Republican presidential candidate only once since 1992. With a considerable nonwhite voter population and all-Democratic congressional delegation, it’s not exactly fertile ground for a surprise GOP victory," the report notes before adding that Parscale feels they can make inroads this go-around.

Oil prices soar more than 10% after Saudi plant attacks

Published

on

Oil prices surged more than 10 percent Monday after attacks on two Saudi Arabian plants that slashed output in the world's top producer by half, with Donald Trump blaming Iran and raising the possibility of a military strike on the country.

West Texas Intermediate jumped 10.68 percent to $60.71 and Brent climbed 11.77 percent to $67.31 in early Asia trading following the blasts at facilities run by state-owned giant Aramco.

The attack by Tehran-backed Huthi rebels in neighbouring Yemen, where a Saudi-led coalition is bogged down in a five-year war, effectively shut down six percent of the global oil supply.
