" children talking...get up! behind you. get up here. you! get up here! suck my...woah! hey don't say that to me. hey, stop! stop! stop! say it again.

can't do that. sit down! sit your a down. you canont do that. you cannot assault another kid. hit me again. knock it off. i'm following this story since it broke. she spoke to the johnston school district about how they train their bus drivers. they told us, scarbrough did follow some of their protocol. ""it takes a special person to be a bus driver." robert scarbrough semester as a school school district in johnston when he allegedly assaulted a boy with special needs. but he went through all proper training. when they're first hired ... bus drivers get one-on-one attention with a trainer who's also a driver. "everything from bus mechanics, radio etiquette, etiquette with the kids." the kids go through their own training too ... called the positive behavior intervention system -- be respectful, be responsible and be safe.

students. but sometimes things get out of hand. "they're advised to pull over, stop the bus, call the district transportation office and say i need assistance. the transportation office calls the johnston police department and they come out to assist however they can." assistants can also help manage the situation for the driver. scarbrough didn't have one on his route. standup: "the district says in a perfect world they would have an assistant on every single bus route, but because they provide transportation to every student no matter where they live, it's something the ultimate question: did scarbrough do anything according to protocol before everything escalated? "when the driver felt a need to speak with students, he correctly pulled the bus over and stopped the bus so that there were no dangers of any kind, no moving violations."" they say he also radioed dispatch at one point ... but what he said and at what
10:04 pm
stephanie: there are various trainings throughout the year for drivers monthly, some on basis. scarbrough is on administrative district and in he has a no with the victim we've asked you at home to share your thoughts about this story. stephanie: altoona called in thinks " the children's behavior was than the bus driver, and that those kids should be commended for standing up to him." a woman from ankeny who asked us to not use her name told us, " obviously the driver's behavior is appalling, but we need to look at the bigger issue of why children are becoming increasingly more disrespectful to adults and what can be done about it. jack: the number one attack target from wednesday night's republican debate on cnbc wasn't democrats or other republicans -- it was the moderators. jack: now-- republicans,
10:05 pm
angry about the questions asked wednesday, are taking action. jack: the republican national committee is changing the channel for its february debate. in a letter to nbc, the r-n-c says, quote, the questions were inaccurate or downright offensive." specifically referenced was the first question directed to donald trump, asking if he was running a comic book version of a presidential campaign. nbc was set to hold the gop debate on february 26th with both telemundo and the national review. the republican national committee says the debate will continue... just without n-b-c. jack: ten of the republicans running for president are around the metro this weekend for the state party's "growth and opportunity party" that's at the state fair grounds tomorrow. today, the iowa democratic party is speaking out about the large gathering of republicans. "they don't care about growth and opportunity for seniors or immigrant famlies or students or lgbt iowans too often their policies would lead to fewer opportunities and
10:06 pm
to get by and fufill their dreams " jack: one of the republicans attending tomorrow's party, threw a party of his own downtown. at buzzard billy's tonight, senator rand paul held a "stand with rand" halloween costume party. we stopped by to see if the candidate was costume, he wasn't. but tonight's holiday party. i want to hear about what hes planning on doing with his tax policy i want to hear him talk about the federal reserve a little bit more i really think rand's a wonderful canidate he stands for very small government which totally resonates with me the biggest thing i was hoping to hear from him tonight is how to decrease our deficit. jack: again, rand will be in the metro tomorrow as part of the "growth and
10:07 pm
opportunity party." look for coverage of that event tomorrow on local 5. stephanie: the des moines police department trying something a little bit different this year for halloween. they're stopping trick or treaters in their tracks, with a fun surprise. local five's jacob peklo joins us now with more. jacob? jacob: stephanie, it was definitely a fun night to be a kid. and if you got stopped by a police officer while you were trick or treating, it was definitely a good thing. officer jason hempstead's patrol of des moines was a little more laid back on friday. natural sound of officer hempstead: "somebody was digging into this." instead of writing tickets, he was giving out candy to trick or treaters. natural sound of officer: "want some candy?" natural sound of parent: "say thank you." jason hempstead, des moines police: "we're handing out candy to the young people of the city. trying to build relations, build rapport, connect to them." there were times, where the message wasn't immediately so sweet. natural sound of siren natural sound of officer: "please put your hands on your head." but others, where the kids knew something good was coming their way. jason hempstead, des moines police: "we have a large bag of candy, and i'm going to give liberally to whoever wants it." like the other 18 or so officers deployed across the city,
10:08 pm
hempstead says the giving was the easy part. jason hempstead, des moines police: "we're usually a hero to some and a zero to others, and that zero's often because we've had negative dealings with people they love and oftentimes, they don't understand the entire circumstance." and while there was a little work involved to get the candy. natural sound of singing: "like a diamond in the sky." natural sound of officer: "that's great." natural sound of children: "thank you." natural sound of bag rustling. the payoff for both the giver and the receiver was well worth it. natural sound: "what do you call a cow with no legs?" officer: "what?" child: "ground beef." officer: "oh, good one." jason hempstead, des moines police: "oh, it's great. their joy is my joy. and when they smile and they appreciate what we're doing and they feel that there is a connection to a police officer, they treasure it, and we treasure it just the same." jacob: hempstead says the department would definitely like to try this event again next year. live in the studio, jacob peklo, local five news. we are iowa.
