Gothamist: Bus Driver Tries to Rally Kids With Violence:

A Staten Island bus driver created a "fight club" on his bus. And not just any fight club - a fight club named the "Death Cheese Bus," where bus driver Michael Cianci was the "Emperor" and all the kids were separated by a sort of caste system ("Lords," "Darths," "Sith Warriors," "Jabas," and "Speds" for the special- education kids). The Post printed some of the rules:

As hereby proclaimed by Emperor Mike of the Death Cheese Bus, unit five, sector seven of the gamma system, these laws are laid down upon us to hold order and restore power. The penalty for breaking this code is banishment. And for a ranking of master or above, the penalty is death or severe beating.
