U.S. Supreme Court Declares Strip Search Of 13-Year-Old Student Unconstitutional

Thanks, to the ACLU, for taking on and winning the case of a young teenage girl, strip searched at school because another student claimed she had given her Advil. What the hell is wrong with some school officials? There are times they do not seem in possession of the brains they were born with. The case, of one child's frightening experience that will, without a doubt, be with her for the rest of her life and that’s not the chilling part.
