Boston Police Give Kids a Ride to School After Bus Drivers Strike
This is the type of news about the police we like to hear. After bus drivers went on strike this morning citywide, Boston Police drove children to school.
The Associated Press reports Mayor Tom Menino is pursuing legal action to get the striking bus drivers back to work, but in the meantime, city services pitched in. Menino called the strike of between 600 and 700 workers illegal. Unions officials who are picketing outside busing company offices say the company isn’t honoring their terms.
In addition to cops giving students rides, kids with valid student IDs were allowed to take city buses and trains for free.
