    During a sixth-grade choir class, an assistant principal allegedly ordered a mass, suspicionless strip search of the underwear of twenty-two preteen girls. $50 went missing during a sixth-grade choir class at Houston’s public Lanier Middle School. When no money turned up, the school police officer “suggested that girls like to hide things in their bras and panties.” All twenty-two girls in the choir class were then strip searched. No parents were notified, despite the girls’ requests. No money was found. Let's discuss this egregious violation of constitutional rights. *************************** * COMMUNITY! * *************************** Join our live discussions on Discord:

    Christ Almighty...! Who, WHO hired and trained this idiot?! EVERYTHING in this case is the EXACT EXAMPLE of what NOT to do...!!!

    I understand that this boils down to a "failure to train" case, however, I'm greatly troubled by the fact that not just a teacher but a Vice Principal, not to mention a school police officer, couldn't comprehend based on nothing more than common sense that these searches were not reasonable. I suppose that highlights the importance of training, but still. If you're looking for one item and your solution is to order the strip-search of 22 children you know that at least 21 of those searches are going to be fruitless. The fact that one of them might be fruitful doesn't justify the other 21. In this case, all 22 were fruitless, but regardless, since it was known that 21 of the searches would be fruitless they were clearly not reasonable. I know they weren't trained but this was an experienced, college-educated adult. Again, I suppose it highlights the importance of training but it concerns me that someone who couldn't reach a common sense conclusion about the reasonableness of mass strip-searches is in a position of authority over children. Or a position of authority over anyone for that matter. For some reason, despite decades of experience, I continue to be surprised by the stupidity of the average person.

    "All agree the search violated the girls constitutional rights..." "Even so, the district court dismissed the girls' lawsuit against the school district for failure to state a claim." It's not often that I headdesk twenty seconds into your videos, but this certainly deserves it.

    The thing I take away from this is that even with the 4th amendment & ALL the case law the court repeatedly dismissed the case against the school...

    oh please! Either the assistant principal or the school resource officer stole the money and were over compensating by ordering the strip search.

    How old is 6th grade? I'm from the UK. To me the 6th grade is age 10-11. Which to me makes it even worse. At least he got the nurse to do it rather than himself. (I assume that the nurse was a woman)

    It's entirely possible there is no missing $50. It was all a mistake. They left it on their night stand at home.

    You're stunned? I'm not. Cops do this every day. You honestly can't go 24 hours without someone posting on youtube a video of a police officer violating someone's constitutional rights. Do the states do anything, other then a paid vacation for the officer (Administrative leave is a temporary leave from a job assignment, with pay and benefits intact), an "investigation" and a completely asinine ruling of "reasonable man" doctrine or "officers discretion"? Yea, they do. They bar any action by the citizen seeking any relief. Forcing the citizen to spend thousands more to appeal to a higher court. The citizen is victimized twice, once by the original offense, second by the judicial system. In my personal experience, as a reserve officer for my city (a voluntary, unpaid position), I witnessed an officer go well beyond groping a 14 year old girl. When I tried to stop the paid officer and later complained, I was told I did not have the authority to stop him and was reprimanded. There was an investigation, but the ruling was "the officer had reasonable cause to suspect the 14 year old may have had a weapon inside her body cavity". Given the child had not actually violated any law and was later released without being charged, he had no right to search, yet the mother did not have the money to hire an attorney to push it in civil court. Realizing the corruption and after several more instances, including finding a half ounce of cocaine in a narcotics officer's personal vehicle, I quit. I'm honestly more stunned that, as an attorney, you would be stunned by this. You see the legal quagmire that is the judicial system, you see how abhorrent people can be, how can you be stunned by this?

    So many appelate judges seem SO intelligent, wise, fair, impartial, and knowledgeable about jurisprudence - this opinion demonstrated all of these qualities! ...so why are those who LACK these qualities the ones nominated to our highest court?
