FBISD ‘Bus Barn Bully’ Gone, Retaliation Remains, Bus Driver Says
April 16th, 2009 | by John Pape, FortBendNow
In spite of the fact that former FBISD transportation supervisor Dann Long, dubbed the “bus barn bully” after assaulting a bus driver, is gone, that driver is saying Transportation Director Richard Torres and other district officials continue to retaliate against him.
Bus Driver Jack Richardson said since he filed the criminal assault complaint, Long and other transportation supervisors have engaged in systematic retaliation against him, and he believes they are trying to force him out of his job.
In spite of the pending assault charge, district officials allowed Long to remain in his position – including supervising Richardson – while the criminal charge was making its way through the judicial system.
It was during that time, Richardson said, the retaliation began. . .
