A 19 year old male special needs student was found dead on Friday after he had been left inside a school bus parked at the Whittier Union High School District parking lot.

The Los Angeles County Fire Department arrived on scene shortly after and pronounced his death at 4:33 p.m. Police labeled the incident a “suspicious death.” How in the hell in this day and age does a bus driver not check the bus to make sure there is no one aboard the bus?

A 19-year-old special needs student died after he was left inside a school bus parked at a Whittier Union High School District parking lot for hours Friday afternoon, officials said.

The incident was first reported as a patient in “full arrest” about 4:25 p.m. in a school district parking lot along Mulberry Drive, between Painter and Greenleaf avenues, according to Whittier police and Los Angeles County Fire Department officials.

Police officers first responded to a report of a “man down” on a bus at the district parking lot, Whittier police officials said in a written statement.

“The bus company, Pupil Transpiration (Cooperative), driver received a call from dispatch that a student was missing,” Whittier police Officer Brad White said. “He (returned) to his bus and that’s where he found this young man unresponsive.”

It was unclear how much time had passed.

When officers arrived at the scene, “They saw several bus drivers performing CPR on an adult male,” according to the statement. “Officers took over in an attempt to revive the adult male, but their attempts were unsuccessful. The Los Angeles County Fire Department arrived on scene shortly after and pronounced his death at 4:33 p.m.”

The teen’s cause of death was unknown, officials added.

There were no obvious signs of trauma on the body, White said.

Friday’s afternoon temperatures soared well into the 90s.

Police labeled the incident a “suspicious death.”

America Deserves Better … What Does it Say About a President’s Character … When His Campaign Tries to use the Tragedy of a Woman’s Death for his Political Gain … How About “Special Olympics” Jokes … How About Constantly Blaming Others?

When being President … Character Matters.

The recent Mitt Romney political ad, “America Deserves Better” pretty much says it all. After 3+ years under President Barack Obama America does deserve better. Much better. Much, much better. In the ad below, it asks … What does it say about a Presidents character when his campaign tries to use the tragedy of a woman’s death for their political gain? What does it say about a Presidents character when he had his campaign raise money for the  ad and stood by as his top aids were caught lying about it?

Doesn’t America Deserve Better … Character Matters!

There comes a point when a President has to take the responsibility for his actions, agenda and policies. As they say, “the buck stops here”. However, when it comes to Barack Obama, the buck stops with everyone else, especially George W. Bush. To the point where 3+ years into the Obama administration, Jeb Bush, the former Governor of Florida, tells Obama to stop blaming his brother. Of course it has to do with Obama’s failed policies and lack of focus on jobs.

“I mean, look, the guy (Obama) was dealt a difficult hand, no question about it,” Bush said on NBC’s Meet The Press. “But he’s had three years. His policies have failed.”

On another side of the issue, I am curious, why does everyone think that Barack Obama is such a good guy? Seriously, where does this come from? Do we actually consider him a good guy because he is the father of two and has not cheated on his wife? Is that how low we have set the bar? If this is the case, then Mitt Romney is a “great guy”, he has been married to one woman, Ann Romney, and has raised 5 boys and helped take care of his wife through her illnesses. Serioulsy America … nice guy? Have you been paying attention to the vicious. negative campaign that Obama has been running? Likable, hardly.

Back to character … Does this really surprise anyone about the negative ads that Obama has backed and his win at any cost? For all those who buy into the liberal MSM’s narrative that Barack Obama is so likable and people would want to have a beer with him. Really? From Obama’s failed first term in office, the only way you can have a beer with Barack is when he falsely jumps to a conclusion that you were acting stupidly and in a racist manner. Or have we forgotten when Obama made the claims that the Cambridge. MA police acted stupidly? Before Obama knew the facts, The One automatically jumped to the conclusion that Sgt. James Crowley “acted stupidly” for arresting black Harvard scholar Henry Lewis Gates Jr.

Click HERE to watch the shameful Obama joke on ‘Special Olympic”

Talk about character, or the lack thereof. Remember when President Barack Obama thought it was perfectly ok to go on the Tonight Show with Jay Leno and make a derogatory joke about the ‘Special Olympics”?  Because Barack Obama can’t bowl, he made the comment that he bowled like “Special Olympics”. That is what passes as humor for Barack Obama. What character, making a pejorative comments regarding those with special needs who have more talent, honor and class in their pinky than Obama. The Jokester in Chief  puts others down because of  his inept failure to knock down any pins. Heck, Obama can’t throw a baseball either.

I will say this … if Barack Obama is willing to make such a comment as a way to get laughs and denigrate those participants in the Special Olympics in from of millions of views, imagine what he does when no one is watching? Then again, its not like Obama’s former White House Chief of Staff didn’t use the “R” word …  Character Matters!
