There's no doubt that although out of innocence, kids can be cruel sometimes. Most of the time, they focus their wickedness on one another, but sometimes they do it on adults too, by bullying.

Here's the story of a group of seventh-grade students, who were caught on film verbally bullying a-then-68-year old bus monitor.

In June 2012, four students from Greece Athena Middle School in New York recorded themselves verbally striking Karen Klein.

Here's the full story.

The victim was a 68-year-old widow named Karen Klein, who worked for the school district for 23 years.
