Police has confirmed the incident saying that the student received a small cut on his neck but it was not severe to require any medical attention. After the incident, the driver of the bus continued driving and took the students to their special education school. This incident has highlighted the concerns that protective parents have about their mentally challenged kids. There are many parents who believe that though the man might have satisfied himself and his son by pummeling the 11 year old kid on the bus, he may have frightened not just the bully but his own son by doing so.

According to the police, Hurd used expletives and threatened the 11 year old boy saying he would kill him and hit other kids also if they bullied his son in future. Interestingly, the incident was not even reported to police by the bus driver. It was the 11 year old kid who suffered at the hands of Hurd who informed the Principal of the school about the incident.
