As I said on the other post, this reminds me of that "Dirty Harry" movie when the scumbag jacked the busload of kids and made them sing. I hope they figure this one out soon...

Ok, they found it. MSNBC on tv reported it. I'll be the first to renew calls for GPS tracking system.

The CNN story still says it's missing. Do you have a link to the article? MSNBC, FoxNews, and CBS New all claim the bus is still missing. Av. Edited: Did they say where is was found or why it was missing?

MSNBC website has slow updates. I saw it on cable. The bus driver claimed he was late and they are now investigating him. They also said he passed a background check but maybe he's the bus driver dude from Simpson's.

Whew! My kids ride a schoolbus. [pissed] But our driver is the "church lady", I think. [:D]

Just heard that the bus driver had a shotgun in his possession! No shit! WTF? Is this "Invasion USA"? I have to renew my calls for a gun-free zone around school buses. Is 1000 feet enough? Someone saw the bus with the kids waving their hands around. The driver might have stopped to get something to eat. Found four hours away from the scheduled destination.

from cnn.com: http://www.cnn.com/2002/US/01/24/missing.school.bus/index.html -- LANDOVER HILLS, Maryland (CNN) -- An off-duty police officer found a school bus carrying 13 children from Pennsylvania that had been missing for than five hours Thursday, and detained the driver and seized a loaded rifle found on the bus. There was no explanation for why the bus deviated than 100 miles off its assigned route. "The driver is in custody and all the kids are safe, uninjured," said Mark Williams, communications director in Berks County, where the Berks Christian Academy is located. "I really don't know if he had any kind of a history or what his problem was," said Williams. Pennsylvania State Police spokesman Ramon Albert said the bus was parked on Annapolis Road in Landover Hills. A passing, off-duty police officer saw children waving out the window and entered the bus. When the officer saw the shotgun, he took the driver into custody. The driver put up no resistance. "He went on the bus and arrested the man for having a shotgun and 13 distraught children," Oley Police Chief George Endy said. Parents of the children are being taken to Maryland by state police to pick them up, Albert said. Police identified the driver as Otto Nuss, in his 60s. The employee of Quigley Bus Co. had picked up the first- through ninth-graders at their homes and was expected to arrive at Berks Christian School in Birdsboro by 9 a.m. There was no immediate explanation for why the driver had gone miles off his assigned route, police said. Nuss has been the regular driver on the route and was considered to be a careful and considerate man. On a recent snowy day, he shoveled a path from the sidewalk to the door of the bus, said Robert Becker, the school administrator. The public schools are responsible for picking up private school students, said Frank Love, the school's athletic director and Bible teacher. Close to 100 police, a police helicopter and dozens of family members had been combing the route, a school spokeswoman said. The school's student body numbers about 200. Agents from the Philadelphia FBI field office were involved in the investigation. - - - - - - - - - What's the difference between a loaded rifle and a shotgun - nothing to the news media!

I looked at foxnew, cnn, nbc, abc and read that: The driver gave himself up to a security guard in a store, who was an off duty cop, said to the cop he left the weapon in the schoolbus. Or it was a rifle, no a shotgun, no a rifle and cops pulled them over when they saw kids waving from the bus or no, an off duty cop pulled the bus over, no knowing it was the missing bus or according to the police chief, the police found the bus parked, the driver must have left to get something to eat. or Who the heck are you to believe? The only thing we know from these stories is, a bus with kids was missing, and has been found.

I don't know where they found it, but the news showed the police carrying away an M-1A/M-14 type rifle they said belonged to this wacked out nutcase. BOHICA! DaMan

Wow, that's too close to home... I live right in the middle between school in Oley & the one in Birdsboro... Last year an Oley bus driver was killed when he drove head-on into another vehicle...Luckily, no kids were on-board then... Looks like Oley needs to re-think thier driver screening process...

Why do idiots like this keep fueling the anti-gunners cause?

Sure looked like that to me before they put it in the trunk. Wonder if it was a SuperMatch? It was behind the driver's seat. But the guy just wanted to drive the kids to Washington DC. Last I checked it was customary to get the parents to sign a field trip permission slip before going on a field trip. Just wait until they search his house and find more "semiautomatic assault weapons" of mass destruction.

Like others here, I too believe there are individuals programmed to "go off" and further the anti's cause.

O NO! 48 guns found in bus driver dude's house! But the authorities did say that wasn't uncommon as he was situated right in the middle of hunting country. So now you have to be a hunter to have that quantity?[:(] I'm not a hunter and don't have plans to become one.[:(] Guess I can never have 48 guns.[:(]

I, too saw an M1A on the news. There is no mistaking that rifle. My wife and I were watching the news when they showed the clip of the officer walking away with it.

Well, at least there were two smart kids on the bus, even if the others peer-pressured them into dumbing down: [url]http://www.cnn.com/2002/LAW/01/25/busdriver.hearing/index.html[/url]
When one child wrote "Call 911" on asign and put it in a window, others encouraged him to take it down. Another student wrote 911 in reverse on a fogged bus window, authorities said.
