A video was captured that shows two 15-year-old boys bullying a 10-year-old boy on a school bus heading to school. In May 2011, Cequan Haskins was tormented by the bullies for 40 minutes.

The pair of bullies called Haskins names, made sexual and racial slurs, and held a cigarette lighter to his skin.

The footage shows two visibly large boys abusing Haskins, trying to get over seats to reach him. The attackers also yell at Haskins to “sit down and shut [his] mouth.”

Haskins’ mother, Roxanne Haskins, released the video at a press conference on Friday, telling wset-tv that she wanted people to see the extent of bullying.

I wanted parents to be aware, that when I speak out, I’m speaking out for all kids. But unfortunately, this did happen to my child, and I want parents to be aware of what’s going on in the school system.

My son, he was a special needs child and he didn’t deserve this. He was entitled to a safe transportation just like any other child in the Appomattox County Public School System.

Roxanne Haskins said that her son was left with physical and emotional scars from the abuse.

He continues to suffer from post traumatic stress disorder and has undergone hours of therapy.

Both of the teens involved were found guilty of disorderly conduct, assault, and battery.

Roxanne Haskins has launched a civil case against the Appomattox County School Board and is awaiting a trial date.

The bus driver, Nancy Davis, was investigated for child neglect and can be heard in the video shouting about the incident.

Ugh, anything to get him quiet! I’ve got to drive this bus.

She was acquitted of all child abuse charges several months ago.
