Commentary: Race shouldn't have been focus of school bus incident

People throughout the area are outraged over the fight on the Belleville West bus on Monday, us included. It's horrible that a student was attacked by two other students, and disturbing that some bus riders stood and laughed or cheered. The police initially said race was the motivating factor, but on Tuesday backed off. All the focus on race is unfortunate and not productive.
