Children Should Have Rights, Too

“Safford Middle School officials did not violate the civil rights of a 13-year-old Safford girl when they forced her to disrobe and expose her breasts and pubic area four years ago while looking for a drug, according to the Ninth U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals ruling,” begins an article in the Eastern Arizona Courier.

And what was the dangerous drug, the scourge of our nation’s youth, that the school authorities thought she was concealing? Ibuprofen (aka Advil), which is well known as a prelude to harder stuff like milk and cookies.

    Rather ghastly typo in that Eastern Arizona Courier piece:

    It was unreasonable to force a 13-year-old girl to expose her breasts and public area to school officials.

    The whole thing is ghastly. What’s happening in this country to basic rights is just plain scarry.
