You can read the story here. Somehow, someone's $10 bill came missing. All the 11 and 12 year old students that were, I assume, around when the bill was lost were forced to strip to their underwear in a search for the bill. I'm sorry, but 10 bucks does not neccessitate a strip search.
When I was in high school our little clip on cop would often stop and frisk random kids for no apparent reason. In my opinion, when I was frisked it was more like molestation than a search. And now the jackboots who seem to run schools nowadays have the authority to strip search little kids to look for a $10 bill? Have we no standards of privacy anymore?
