More great news from the Educational Industrial Complex:
Justin Cox, ten, a student at Union Elementary School in Clinton, was ordered to strip to his T-shirt and boxer shorts on June 1 after a girl student accused him of taking $20, WRAL TV reported.
He told his mom Clarinda Cox that a girl dropped the cash and he picked it up and returned it to her.
She told the TV station, “If I felt he needed to be searched, I would have brought him into the bathroom. You could have had a witness in the bathroom with me. I would have searched my son.”
Female assistant principal, Teresa Holmes, did not find the money, and hugged Justin and apologized to him afterwards, she claimed.
I hope she waited until he put his pants back on.
Over the top?
“She came up to him and rubbed her fingers around inside of his underwear,” Cox said. “If that isn’t excessively intrusive, I don’t know what is.”
Who is training these people? In what world is strip searching a third grader the logical choice?
Welcome to the police state, Justin. Now drop your pants. Your rights are worth less than $20.
