Black-on-Hispanic violence: An elderly school bus driver is dead after being fatally beaten during a flare of road rage when his bus carrying two children clipped a double-parked car, knocking off its side-view mirror
Juan DelValle, a 65-year-old Hispanic grandfather due to retire at the end of the 2011-2012 school year has been taken off life support in New York's St Barnabas Hospital after punched twice in the face on June 11, 2012. He never regained consciousness. Enraged by DelValle's unsuccessful pass of his illegally parked Chrysler Sebring, African-American Joey Scott, 30, confronted him behind the bus. The bus driver wanted to call police but the black male punched him first instead. The attack caught on CC-TV shows the two standing behind the school bus right before DelValle is sharply knocked to the ground. The black attacker next turns his back from the Latino laying sprawled and lifeless in the street, coolly walking away. Two middle school students were on that bus during the incident. Scott was arrested at his apartment later that day after a reported two-hour negotiation. Scott, who had a previously long rap sheet, is being held on a $250,000 cash bond. The black male faces charges that could potentially be upgraded to murder.
