This South Carolina High School Principal apparantly decided that marijuana selling was out of control in his school. So the local police were called in. Hallway sealed off, students made to lay down on floor and police’s guns drawn. Dogs were brought in and lockers and backpacks were searched. Nothing found.
Is it just me, or does this seem like a totally inappropriate use of police power? If I were one of the parents I would be outraged if my teen were treated in this manner.
If in fact the principal knew that certain students were selling marijuana and had videotaped them, I could probably be persuaded that this was justified, but after listening to the video, He says, “I have a feeling”. WTF?
Can you imagine if you were in a shopping mall, then the police came in and sealed it off and drew their guns and made everyone lie down, while the dogs searched?
