(NYPost)   Cost the state $3 million because you conducted a mass warrantless strip search of 900 high school students (and found nothing)? Well Mr. you'd better believe you're getting suspendin'... at least until the outrage dies down   ( nypost.com) divider line

Who is paying? Around here the state is generally authorized to pay up to $1 million per covered employee. Cities have different limits depending on insurance coverage and how many naked pictures the police union has of city councilors.

What the f**king hell!

What led the Sheriff and his toadies to lock down and search an entire school in the first place?   Seriously, what the hell.

Moreover.   How farking bad to you have to fark up that you search an ENTIRE high school worth of kids...900 in all, and you don;t find a dime bag, or even a single roach?   Was this a Mormon Seminary?

FTFA An estimated 15 percent of the settlement would be set aside for legal fees.

That doesn't sound right.  Isn't it federal law that 99.9% of any settlement go to the lawyers?

LEOs should be required to have bad-cop insurance that pays off these lawsuits instead of sticking it to the taxpayers.  Also, police unions should be barred from being involved in the insurance coverage.  Eventually, bad cops will not be able to afford the coverage.

Lawyers representing the sheriff and deputies in the civil case argue say their clients are entitled to official immunity and have asked a judge to dismiss the lawsuit.

Because, if you think you're right about them maybe having drugs, you grab those children in the private parts.

That's what they are saying are protected official actions. That's where this country is at. Children are the enemy. And are treated as such. That's just .... deplorable.

What's the story on that?  I'd assume there would have been a female TSA officer around for that pat down.  If I was the parents, I would have insisted on a female TSA officer.  That's a reasonable request.

If the vast majority of cops are good, as is claimed, then the premiums should be fairly cheap for them.  I'm willing to go so far as to let the city pay the base premium, but the cop is responsible for anything over that amount.  And absolutely no spreading out the costs to all cops in the department.

I still remember 1984... not the novel, the year. We were all walking home from school and walked into a sea of green Hillsborough County SO (Florida) uniforms. They made us ALL stop because they were searching for guns and drugs. I spoke up about needing a warrant or probable cause. A deputy got right in my face and said he would haul my ass in and my parents wouldn't be able to bail me out until Monday (IIRC, this was a Thursday or Friday). They dumped out our backpacks and bags and frisked us.

I told my parents when I got home and all I heard was "What in the HELL did you DO to get the cops after you like that?"

Sounds to me like impunity.

What if it were?  There are procedures in place for that kind of thing.  Students and staff are evacuated and all backpacks, briefcases, etc must be left behind.  Then the bomb squad goes in and does their thing, typically with a bomb sniffing dog. Worried about a suicide vest?  Everyone takes off their coats.  No need to strip search anyone.

When I was a kid and if I acted up in the neighborhood or did something wrong and a neighbor saw it it was not uncommon for a neighbor to drag my ass to my house and answer to my dad. Dad would invite them in, drink a few beers all while I was upstairs not allowed out with no TV for the rest of the day.

I suspect from the law enforcement logic Sheriff Hobby described using that when he and his deputies left empty-handed that day he was already planning something like a repeat search in a few days that would, being a great surprise, suddenly reveal that huge drug problem his sheriff's intuition still told him must be infecting the school.  Opiod pills were going to be dropping out of every other girl's panties.
