Mom Wants Answers After Bus Aide Slaps Son

Demetria Ratchford2 years ago

In Port Richey, Florida, Lori Lamb wants answers after a school bus aide on the school bus slaps her autistic son.

Bus Assistant Caught on Video Slapping Child

Bus aide, Jim Lambert, was caught on a surveillance video slapping a student, Jeffrey Lamb, and is now off the job. Lori was unaware of the child abuse taking place until another student on the bus came forward.

The video reveals Lambert repeatedly slapping Jeffrey on the way home from school. Jeffrey has autism, and had been shouting profanities on the bus. Because of his autism, Jeffrey is unable to control his behavior.

In the video, Lambert swings at Jeffrey several times and yells at him to shut up.

Bus Assistant Under Investigation

Lamb claims that Jeffrey came home with bruises and was traumatized with nightmares following the incident.

Lamb stated that she felt betrayed by Lambert, whose hand she had shaken earlier, thanking him for helping with her son.

Currently, the school district is open to reviewing past videos of Lambert if more complaints arise. District staff members are investigating Lambert’s files to see whether there were any problems in the past.

Lambert is currently on paid leave from the school, but the school board is expected to fire him at its next meeting. Lambert is out of jail until he’s tried for child abuse.
