Come to order, class

Thanks to the Jonesboro Sun for this report on school bus discipline. A Nettleton Schools bus driver, Ervin Franklkin Bowdon, was suspended Friday after students reported he threatened to shoot them.

Student Josh McGinnis, 18, reported that he was trying to stretch his knee when Bowdon threatened him, according to a police report. Police indicated McGinnis recently had knee surgery.

McGinnis reported that Bowdon said he should be respected because he was a former Marine and could hurt him.

“I asked him how,” McGinnis wrote in a statement to police. “He said, ‘I could bring my AK-47 and shoot all of you in five seconds.’”
