this makes me glad i'm not a student in this day and
age...


The mother is furious after her son was forced to
strip naked at a Houston school two times, KPRC Local
2 reported Wednesday.



Patrick Knox, 17, said pat downs and metal detector
checks are routine at Houston Independent School
District's Harper Alternative School, but said the
principal and a campus officer went too far during a
drug investigation in December.

"They told me to take off my pants. I was, like no,
I'm not taking off my pants," Knox said.

Knox said he took his clothes off after the school
officials would not allow him to call his mother.

"I had my hands on my privates. So then, I had my back
turned to them. So then, that's when they told me to
turn around and move my hands. I moved my hands. They
were just looking at me," Knox said.

The following day, Knox said the school officials said
he could either be strip searched again or go to jail.

"That was voyeuristic and pedopheliac behavior. It's
sinister and I don't know what they were getting him
ready for. Something like this should not happen,"
Knox's mother, Melva Benton, told KPRC Local 2.

HISD spokesman Terry Abbott said the principal has
been temporarily reassigned, off campus, pending the
outcome of an investigation. No action has been taken
against the officer involved.

"The student shouldn't have been, even though this was
part of an active drug investigation, strip searched,"
Abbott said.

HISD said the superintendent is investigating the
allegations. Officials said they are not sure what
happened but said the strip-searching of students is
not allowed.

Knox told KPRC Local 2 that other students at the
school were also strip-searched.



Thanks,

My view is that if there is no evidence for it, then forget about it. An agnostic is somebody who doesn't believe in something until there is evidence for it, so I'm agnostic.

Shit, Id look at porn before going to class and pop a boner for them, or eat beans and let them check my cavity all they want  :roll:

When I started as a federal narcotics agent, the budget that we were working with, it was less than $5 million a year, and there was only 125 agents for the entire world to work the narcotic trade that we were fighting in those days.  Times have changed.  The gluttony has grown.

I guess I'm lucky in Canada - everyone in my school knows the next guy over probably lights up after school. Even the teachers and principal. Hell, the first thing they do when they ask you when you go to sign out because you're feeling sick is "have you been doing drugs." I even said yes once (jokingly) and they didn't ask any questions.  :???:

American schools seem to specialize is scaring the fuck out of the students. Scared teens are maleable material for suggestion and indoctrination, which I suppose is useful for political propaganda and the like, I suppose. Get them too emotionally afraid to "stand out" because "the man" might strip them naked and ask them to suck their Johnson. Makes sense to me. Also makes sense that they'd be doing this towards males, as most highschool females (as far as I can see) are already afraid of everything.

Not just that, think it through just one step further. If everyon's afraid to stand up, they don't. That creates a false consensus. And few actually can escape some kind of sanction under the growing list of rules and dx, hence rampant paranoia. Yes, very very good for certain types of political players. Look into the Project for a New American Century. They spell it out pretty clearly.

When a man you like switches from what he said a year ago, or four years ago, he is a broad-minded person who has courage enough to change his mind with changing conditions. When a man you don't like does it, he is a liar who has broken his promise.

First-grader suspended for sex harassment

Thursday, February 9, 2006; Posted: 9:13 a.m. EST (14:13 GMT)


Berthena Dorinvil says the suspension of her son is outrageous.  
BROCKTON, Massachusetts. (AP) -- A 6-year-old boy is getting a lesson on the meaning of sexual harassment long before he'll be able to spell it.

The first-grader was suspended for three days for sexual harassment after he put two fingers inside a classmate's waistband, school officials told his mother, Berthena Dorinvil. The boy told her he only touched the girl's shirt after the girl touched him.

Experts say only in rare, troubling cases can children that young truly sexually harass one another.

"The connotation is you're getting some kind of sexual gratification, or wanting sexual gratification, or are putting pressure on for some kind of sexual gratification, when a 6-year-old doesn't have that capacity," said E. Christopher Murray, a civil rights attorney who has handled school discipline cases.

Dr. Elizabeth Berger, a Philadelphia-area child psychiatrist, said this case seems to be an overzealous attempt to ensure students feel safe in school after years in which society was not attentive enough.

The boy's mother called the January 30 suspension from Downey Elementary School outrageous. She said she can't even explain to her son what he did wrong because he's too young to understand.

"He doesn't know those things," she told The Enterprise of Brockton. "He's only 6 years old."

Brockton school officials have not commented beyond a statement from Superintendent Basan Nembirkow that said sexual harassment charges are always investigated and officials are trained to deal with them.

The Brockton School Committee defines sexual harassment among students, in part, as "uninvited physical contact such as touching, hugging, patting or pinching."

First-graders who repeatedly touch classmates need to be disciplined and taught what's appropriate, said Nan Stein, a senior research scientist at the Center for Research on Women at Wellesley College. But don't call the apparent discipline problem "sexual harassment" because first-graders just don't get it, she said.

There have been similar cases. In 1996, a New York second-grader was suspended for kissing a girl and ripping a button off her skirt -- an idea the boy said he got from his favorite book "Corduroy," about a bear with a missing button. Earlier that year, a Lexington, North Carolina, 6-year-old was separated from his class after kissing a classmate on the cheek.

Boy accused of sex harassment gets apology

Saturday, February 11, 2006; Posted: 9:07 a.m. EST (14:07 GMT)

Massachusetts (AP) -- A 6-year-old boy who was suspended after being accused of sexually harassing a classmate transferred to a new school Friday after officials apologized to his parents.

Officials at Downey Elementary School apologized at a meeting Thursday, said the boy's mother, Berthena Dorinvil.

"They said they learned a lesson, and they said they will go over the rules to change things," she said.

The boy was suspended Jan. 30 for three days after school officials said he put his fingers under a female student's waistband.

Dorinvil had called the suspension outrageous and said she couldn't even explain the accusation to her son because of his age.

Brockton schools define sexual harassment among students, in part, as "uninvited physical contact such as touching, hugging, patting or pinching."

School officials had refused to transfer the boy, so the parents enlisted the help of an educational advocate.

"I'm pleased that a resolution was arrived at mutually," Superintendent Basan N. Nembirkow.
