Once again we see that placing moonbattery ahead of common sense puts innocent lives on the line:
The Colorado State Patrol issued a citation to the school bus driver [David Shaw] who hit three teenage girls while they crossed the street.
The girls were hit Tuesday afternoon. Witnesses say they were in the crosswalk and they had the right of way.
By sheer luck, the girls will be okay.
Shaw was hired by Jefferson County Schools in October. He was convicted on a DUI in 1992 and he was going through alcohol rehabilitation treatment as recently 2009.
What the…?!?! How could even educrats be foolish enough to hire a guy with a long-term drinking problem to drive a school bus?
When asked whether Shaw would have been hired if the district had known he’d been in and out of addiction rehab treatment, a representative cited the Americans with Disabilities Act, which reads “‘It is illegal under state and federal disability laws to deny employment solely on the basis of a history of treatment for alcohol or substance abuse.”
ObamaCare may be the single most destructive piece of legislation ever inflicted by the federal government, but the moonbatty for the sake of being moonbatty Americans With Disabilities Act is still the most insane. Obviously it must be repealed at once before more people get hurt.
On a tip from AC.
