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.

I think that a lot of the reasons (e.x. The death penalty preventing crimes like murder) used in the past have been proven false.

This was the example that we would often hear. No death penalty in Australia or the UK and I think our murder rates are significantly lower than in say, Texas (though that's probably gun control related)
