School drug warriors defend laptop spying

Well, what a shock!

After the Lower Merion School District near Philadelphia became the target of a lawsuit for secretly taking pictures of students at home using laptops issued by the school, more details are emerging.

The school system now says it was merely trying to catch people stealing the computers. But that is an out-and-out lie.

How do we know that? Because the student who is suing isn't being accused of stealing a machine (as far as I know). Rather, the school is falsely accusing him of druggie behavior and druggie ways because the camera caught him eating a piece of candy that the school mistook for drugs.

So this isn't about finding stolen computers. It's about policing private behavior and accusing people of being on dope.

I bet the school has teamed up with some abusive teen "rehab" that recruits in the school district, so the school is trying to swell the program's ranks by making up bullshit. Hell, schools in my area have done it for years.
