I don't know what to say on this. I'm speechless.
Congress Considering Strip Searching Students
September 18, 2006
Imagine an America in which school officials could strip search every student in their school based on the unsubstantiated tip that one of them might have a joint. Congress is voting on a bill Tuesday or Wednesday that could make these police state tactics more common.
The Student Teacher Safety Act of 2006 (HR 5295) is a sloppily written bill that would require any school receiving federal funding (essentially every public school) to adopt policies allowing teachers and school officials to conduct random, warrantless searches of every student, at any time, for essentially any reason they want. All they would have to do is say they suspect one of their students might be carrying drugs, and then they could conduct a wide scale search of every student in the building. These searches could be pat-downs, bag searches, or strip searches depending on how far school administrators wanted to go. Although courts would have the power to overturn policies that went "too far", it could take years - possibly decades - to safeguard the rights of students in every school.

I think they should pass another law too. Requiring the strip searches of congressman and senators lest one of them has a joint in their possession.

It is all upside down these days.
Due to the lack of probable cause we have guilty until you prove yourself innocent.
Another good reason for parents to pull their children out of the socialist public school system. We don't need children learning how to be good socialist citizens who submit to all kinds of tyrannical behaviour.

You'd really have to draw the short-straw to get naked congressman duty... eww!

What ever happened to being innocent until proven guilty. We used to toute that phrase all over, everybody thought of it. I swear the media has a way of taking phrases and idea's like that out of our heads so we forget.
We need a politician to go nuts, then we can take all the rest and detain them in torture camps round the world.
