A CYNICAL LOOK AT THE DAILY GRIND

WHEELS OF THE BUS GO ROUND AND ROUND

I love the name of this Arkansas town.

A Dumas, Ark., boy led police on a chase through three counties and four towns after he stole ... a school bus.


School officials alerted State Police of the stolen vehicle after spotting its lights around 11 p.m. Friday as it left the bus yard.

The 10-year-old was able to elude police along U.S. Route 65 through Desha, Lincoln and Jefferson counties despite road spikes being set up to slow down the bus.

He missed them all, each and every one.

Nearly 44 miles later, the boy slowed down enough for police to make the stop. That's when authorities discovered the driver was a child. He was cuffed, taken into custody and later released to his parents.

Turns out the kid was caught on tape trying to pull the same prank last month in Little Rock.

Dumas: Leave off the last "S" for stupid. (Yes, I know dumb is not spelled d-u-m)

Sounds like he drives better than some school bus drivers in these parts.
Can stealing cars be far behind?

What was a 10 year old kid doing running around unsupervised at 11 pm? No wonder he's heading for juvie.

Oh horrors, I know it is politically incorrect, but that Dumas boy needs a good a@# whoopin'. Hope he gets community service cleaning inside and outside of un-airconditioned, sweaty buses (in the heat of the summer)of kids' messes after a class trip- vomit, snot rockets, chewing gum and the bus latrines for good measure. He'll never want to step inside another bus again.

I would agree with the whoopin but then he probably needs some good old fashion parental supervision and love. My guess is he is not getting that at home - evidently because what parent/guardian lets their 10 year old run the streets at 11:00 - maybe the parents were at the game but come on - my child is always in my sight NO MATTER WHAT or where I am. A 10 year old that does this crying out for something. We ask ourselves "What is wrong with these kids these days?" when we should be asking What is wrong with us
