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 haven't read the article yet, but whoa.

Happens everywhere, and all the time, though.

My niece was 'targeted' by her dorm deans/RAs (not sure which, maybe both)--she had been *off-campus* at a party, and some *other people* were photographed with alcohol, and the picture made it to FB. So, they jumped on my niece (the denomination is historically pretty strict about teetotaling), and told her outright that they were going to "make an example of her because she's popular".

No matter that she didn't have the alcohol, couldn't prove it if she did, she was OFF-CAMPUS, and I don't even know if the people photographed were of legal age, they might very well have been.

Just pisses me off. I mean, really--what if she's at MY house, and I'm photographed with a glass of wine...are they going to jump on her for that, too?

People honestly need to use their effing brains.
