On June 11, Juan DelValle was knocked to the pavement by the driver of a double-parked car that he damaged with his bus. When he got out of the bus to survey the damage — the bus clipped the car’s mirror — the driver began punching him so hard his head slammed on the road.

DelValle had been driving a school bus for 10 years and was preparing to retire at the end of this school year.

Just goes to show you, people value their cars more than a human life. It was just a mirror. I wonder does he have a faher or grandfather? I hope he goes to jail for a very Loooooooooooog time.

This is so sad that a person gets so irate over an accident that a man loses his life. I hope charges are filed and justice given. Prayers to Juan's family during this tragic time.

Rest in peace Juan. May the criminal who did this get his 12 years for manslaughter, I'll volunteer for the jury. This was all over a mirror.
