A group of Canadian investors and BusGuard license owners had already finalized the purchase of Force Multiplier’s intellectual property, when it learned of the federal charges, said Jean Souliere, CEO of BusPatrol America.


Solutions in any way,” Curtis said. “Tat agreement allows us to purchase the cameras back from Dallas County Schools, allowing Dallas County Schools to raise money to pay off legitimate creditors, and then it also gave BusPatrol the opportunity to purchase the exclusive license to run the stop-arm camera program in the state of Texas.” In the wake of the bad press about DCSD over the


past year and a half, which included the government agency acting as a Force Multiplier agent statewide, in violation of its original charter, a number of Texas school districts have chosen to steer clear of stop-arm cameras, at least for the time being. Several districts that were contacted for this story declined to elaborate. While Hinojosa said Dallas ISD continues working


with BusPatrol America on interior bus camera systems, he added his district opted to move away from exterior bus-arm cameras. “Tere were so many different issues, we just decided that we had enough to do to try and not take that on,” Hinojosa added. But if the stop-arm cameras have a bad name, it


stems from bad actors, Curtis said, not from any fault of the technology itself.


“Te bad actions of the people involved should not


taint what is otherwise a very safe program. Right now as we speak, the cameras that were installed are being used by the independent school districts for safety purposes,” said Curtis, who likened the technology to home security cameras. Te dissolution committee’s civil lawsuit seeks a


threefold return on $125 million in calculated damages caused by Force Multiplier Solutions. Proceeds are supposed to continue to pay off DCSD debts, but those funds may also be distributed back to taxpayers through the independent school districts that formerly contracted with it. Te lawsuit credits investigative reporting by Scott


Friedman of KXASTV5 with uncovering the stop- arm camera conspiracy, and publishing 90 articles “detailing the insider dealings that lead to DCSD’s debilitating debt.” “We [hope to] show others who are out there in a position of power—judicial, legislative or otherwise— that [abuses of] power will not be tolerated in the state of Texas, it will not be tolerated by the taxpayers, it will not be tolerated by the citizens, and it certainly should not be tolerated when children’s safety is at the heart of that behavior,” Curtis added. 
