this makes my blood boil

I cannot recall hearing a story on NPR that has every angered me as much as the one I heard this morning.

Supreme Court To Hear School Strip-Search Case

Redding says she was then asked to strip down to her underwear and stood there while the nurse and secretary inspected her clothes and shoes.

"Then, you know, I thought they were going to let me put my clothes back on, but instead they asked me to pull out my bra and shake it, and the crotch on my underwear, too," Redding says.

I cannot find any circumstance where this is acceptable behavior. When you hear more of the details surrounding the allegation is just gets worse.

A 13yr girl should never be subjected to this kind of treatment. To me this is almost akin to being molested by a teacher.

There's a special place in hell for an administrator who thinks this is acceptable behavior.

Dad is a very lapsed Catholic and a retired CPD. Mom still goes to mass weekly and is a nurse.

I don't think the Catholicism had that much to do with it. I have too many issues with the Church.

Yeah, me too. (Particularly at the moment after that situation with the pregnant 9 year old, that pushed me over the edge)

And then there are issues like this where as Toby's rabbi says, they do have a good record and yet I sometimes go the other way.
