FTA: "The assistant principal was within her legal authority, her legal right, to do the search," Warren said. "She may have been overzealous in her actions."

Wait - it's legal in North Carolina to strip-search a child in a school without a parent or guardian present? Really? Never mind that it's the opposite sex doing the searching, never mind that the search was done without the consent of the parent or guardian - what the hell?

What in the hell is wrong with you, North Carolina?

Hey NC, it's "in locus parentis" not "in locus penis".

Non-story, overzealous principal?

Ahhh, NC. Marry your cousin, strip search some students, hate the gays. All in a day's work.

You never think, man, that could be my kid. It's always some other misbehaving kid. It's that brat that lives next door. It's that hooligan from across the street. It's that black kid who doesn't have a dad living with him.

But if you start letting principals and authority figures treat other kids like this, then it's only a matter of time before they use that power to terrorize your kid. Maybe it was stealing today, but the bar lowers each time. Next time it will be copying homework. Or pulling a girl's pigtails. Or dropping a pencil in class.

This principal needs to be summarily dismissed. farking jackbooted pedophile.

Sounds like the Principal went to Penn State

Kids falsely accused of theft should be permitted to deliver a full blown kick in the junk to their accusers.

From what I understand just about everywhere in the U.S only the police and prison officials can perform strip searches, and those are in very specific circumstances. And then you have this situation were a minor is involved. How in the hell does the school board think it is legal for them to strip search a minor without parental consent? The police can't even question a minor without consent.

Not that it changes much, but...

Why did a third grader have 20 bucks at school?
 
2012-06-19 02:02:14 AM
How on Earth, in this day and age of paranoia about child molestation, where kids can't walk to school and anyone who looks at a child wrong is thrown in prison...how are school officials legally allowed to strip search a child?

How does an accusation of stealing $20 overpower the concerns of every single parent with regard to their child's safety?

Apparently people don't pay any attention to what the rules are, or they just think that it's the "other kids" or the "kids who are doing bad things" that will get strip-searched. Or the school shootings have made people think it's necessary. Still, hopefully the fact that it was done over a missing $20 will spark some reform. Such as the replacement of the entire school board that deemed the principal's actions legal.

Principal Sandusky?
 
2012-06-19 02:05:39 AM
her 10-year-old son, Justin, a student at Union Elementary School, was ordered to take off everything but his T-shirt and boxer shorts on June 1 after a girl and several other students accused him of taking $20

still have clothes on? not a strip search. There's always some dumb kid throwing away some inconsequential sum of money in school that is a life-changing amount to a kid. Why is a ten year old even carrying twenty dollars?

Sampson County Schools spokeswoman Susan Warren says Cox should have been informed about the search but that Holmes did nothing wrong and that a male janitor was present for the search.

Not really helping yer case there.
 
2012-06-19 02:06:26 AM
Wait, ten years old and in the 3rd grade? I started first grade at 5 years old because of a late year birthday. So I was 8 in 3rd grade. Now doing the math, lets say young master thief is 10 now, 9 in 2nd grade, 8 in first grade. Something doesn't add up there.
 
2012-06-19 02:07:48 AM
I'd come down on that school like a bag of hammers.
 
2012-06-19 02:10:39 AM
'Oh god. 20 dollars is missing. These 3rd graders said it was this 3rd grader...what do I do... This could make or break me'

"So, could you please start taking your clothes off? Don't worry, the janitor is here watching, and he's a guy."
 
2012-06-19 02:11:38 AM
Those comments from the article are incredible. It's hard to believe that people are ok with a school admin strip searching students.
 
2012-06-19 02:12:53 AM
So if a male principal strip searched a 10-year-old girl while a female janitor watched, that would have been okay too? What the fark is wrong with people?

Actually, regardless of the genders involved, what the fark is wrong with these people?

Was the third grader-strip searched as well?

Some little girl wanted to use it to set up a boy she hates for a strip-search.

1) You're a farking idiot if you think a strip search means you have to take everything off. Are strip clubs full nude only?
2) They violated a few legal precedents and I hope they are taken to task by the mother/aclu. The assistant principal needs to lose her job at the very least.

NC needs to check recent Supreme Court rulings, they don't have legal right to strip search students. Dumbasses....

Article about the court ruling.

2012-06-19 02:54:38 AM
Back when adults had moral authority and weren't just big old immature people as they are now, one or two of them could have looked that boy in the eye, summoned up their sternest tone of voice, and IF he were guilty, his lip would be quavering in a minute.
If his answer was still a firm "no ma'am," they also would have recognized that.

But today, we have strip searches. I say the Germans won.

damm good point! it's easy to forget what it was like way back when but you've summed it up perfectly. a typical child would come clean about something when questioned by authority. maybe this case, if it is pursued, will bring about some set standards on how such things are to be handled in the future.

And see, and thats fine, if youre arresting someone and putting them in lockup, you want to make sure they dont have a shiv tucked in their asscrack or a bag of drugs under their taint. Thats ok.

This was a 10 year old child who was not under arrest and was strip searched by a school administrator. Two completely different issues.

fark you.

I wouldn't strip search a kid if I KNEW the farker had drugs keistered. Teachers don't make enough money to deal with hellspawn as it is. Dealing with something like this? fark that. You could give me carte blanche to do it, or even make it a job requirement. Not gonna do it. fark that noise. Not worth it.

When it looks like it's a good time to strip search a kid, take a long step back and reevaluate your life, because son you just hit rock fuggin' bottom.
