Uproar After School Checks Kids' Pants for Poop
Newser ^ | 02/15/2013 | By Mark Russell, Newser Staff

Posted on 02/15/2013 9:23:44 AM PST by Responsibility2nd

(Newser) – There's no way this one could have ended well: An East Texas school's search for the mystery pooper who had five times left feces in the gymnasium led the principal to ask the school nurse to inspect the fourth-graders' underwear. "My kid came home and he said ... his butt had been inspected," complained one parent of a West Sabine Elementary student. That class had been the ones using the gym when the feces appeared, and didn't respond when the principal continually asked who did the deed. She defended the move to KAIT8 News.

She says the nurse only tugged at their pants' waistline to look inside, and that no pants were pulled below the buttocks. "There are lies being circulated," she says. Adds the superintendent, "We've all been examined by nurses. I do think it is appropriate in certain situations." And the nurse herself says, "I just peeked in their pants like you would check a baby's diaper." But two parents have complained, and a former school board member noted that, "You don't violate someone's civil rights just to achieve the ultimate goal." As for the mystery pooper, the search did not reveal the culprit.

Something you don't ordinarily expect your fourth grader to say:

"Mom! They inspected my butt today."

The old phrase ‘smells like s**t’ is there for a reason. If someone drops a deuce and doesn’t wipe out, it’d probably smell for a long ways away. No need for close up inspections.

To be fair, they should check all the teachers' butts too.

In jr. high we had a dog visitor to the gym who would leave feces hanging from the wall. I don’t know what he was protesting, but he certainly had an unusual talent.

One of the few times I agree with what the perps in a public school did.

However, it did remind me of a certain South Park episode.

You send your kids to public school, you deserve to hear whatever they come home and tell you about. But they don't.

I'm at the point where it's truly hard to be civil to parents of public welfare schooling.

When I was in fourth grade, we had a gargantuanly obese kid that pooped "inappropriately" almost every day-in his pants, in corners, on the playground, you name it. His mother claimed that he had a "condition" and sent a little bag with fresh undies each day so the teacher could change him. Our teacher didn't buy it for a minute. She took Poopie aside and told him that if he did his thing even one more time that he was barred from the big class picnic that we were all REALLY looking forward to. "Condition" or no, Poopie was clean for the rest of the year.

I suppose that today the teacher would be fired or something.

Yes, but ostensibly for medical purposes. Now I wonder if there were ulterior motives.

For some years there has been an Internet meme about elementary and high schools having “unannounced mandatory penis checks” of all male students, as a background to the confession of some male student who was woefully unprepared for his inspection, with disastrous results.

Well, Like they say

“IF it walks like a duck, quacks like a duck, smells like duck shiite, then there is a duck somewhere nearby, the job is to leave no leaf unturned in the quest of finding same duck.”

There is no such thing anymore as in loco parentis, right? And though kids have no expectation of privacy for their lockers and desks and such, I should think they do for their person. If not their pockets at least their butts.

Sounds like suin’ time.

There was also an ‘inappropriately pooping’ obese kid in my kids’ Sunday school class, a sixth grader. He got his feelings hurt because the kids started complaining that he stunk after he loaded his adult sized diaper and just sat there. I told my kids they didn’t have to sit in the room with him and they could leave when that happened. One morning, after Sunday school, his mother tried to chew me out because she said my two told her son he smelled. I laughed and said, “Well he does, especially after he fills his diaper and just sits there. He needs to get up and leave and I’m not making my kids sit in there with him. End of story.” She didn’t take it well and tried to explain he had a condition. Yeah, yeah lady, whatever. This boy was in the sixth grade, not in a wheelchair or on crutches, and aside from being a nervous, obese kid who was terrified of his mother, there was no reason why he couldn’t at least get up and leave when he had ‘to go’.

Appreciate the fix, but I don’t want to lose the “welfare” aspect of it. It is government-funded full time babysitting, a form of welfare. And like other forms of welfare, it infantilizes and cripples the recipient.

Although indoctrination is certainly a factor, one should keep in mind that while the so-called teachers are lying to the children, their parents at home are lying to themselves.

Years ago a Machine shop I worked at had a foreman who was a bit of a Richard from time to time. One day he walked in and found a brown paper bag full of dog feces on his desk. It did not help him improve his attitude.

I’m finding it hard to feel sorry for the kids or parents.

What is happening is disgusting and a health hazard. On purpose or not, they need to know. If no one puts up, then consequences be damned.

When they promote sodomy to kindergarteners, it should be expected. Their minds are always on fecal material and sexualizing children so they have “fecal minds” like all Leftists. Look at Weiner’s tweets-—Sandusky’s passions—the bath house culture which draws people to rest stops for “love”. These people’s sick obsession with sex, especially the anal cavity, can NOT be controlled.

The Study of history——of Leftism (Leftism Revisited by K-L) always shows a fixation with homoeroticism-—whether it is mutilation and desecration of dead-headless bodies like in the French Revolution-—or pulling up bodies and posing them in grave yards, like in the Spanish Civil War-—or the orgies of the homosexual Brownshirts with the Hitler Youth. They are all mentally ill and are irrational and destroy the innocence of children which warps their worldview.

(”Liberalism is a mental disease”—they have a “warped” worldview of human beings and it is a fact that homosexuals only look at human beings as OBJECTS for lust). To objectify human beings-—removes dignity and worth from all human beings—it is anti-Christian. Reverts back to occultism/paganism/atheism where groups of people are killed or abused.

No sane person should allow a child under 8 years of age to be subjected to Marxists/Atheists indoctrination in the public schools. And then, the culture (schools) HAS to reinforce those Christian Ethics (the most effective ethical system). School curricula is designed to remove Virtue. Formation of character takes 7 years and then needs to be reinforced by “culture”. Our culture is now Toxic-—and destroys and warps children’s idea of human interaction and “beauty” and “goodness”.

Virtue is necessary for a Free Republic! This concept of Socrates created the USA—all Founders knew this fact and Christian Ethics is the most universal, rational Ethics ever formed. Leftists (Cultural Marxists—Lukacs, etc.) know to collapse Virtue, you corrupt the innocent children. Make them focus on sex organs or the degraded and not gain true Wisdom (Classical thinking). “Sex Ed” is a Marxist invention to corrupt children and destroy their natural sexual formation.

Young Children NEVER have had “instructions” on “sex” by strangers in any culture that lasted or flourished.

The cultures that didn’t protect the innocence of children-—like Afghanistan-—collapses or is totally dysfunctional and non-flourishing. Or like in the Ancient societies-—they were tyrannies with slavery and no rights for women==like the Samurai and Ancient Greeks where boys were used for lust.

As much as I'd like to ascribe some greater conspiracy to this, it looks like some fool added 2+2 and came up with only 3.

My uncle was a school janitor for a long, long time. He had a problem with the boys - all about that age, 10,11,12 - peeing on the radiator in the bathroom. Probably made an interesting sizzling sound, or something.

His solution? He borrowed some of my Aunt's nail polish and put a dot on the back of each urinal. Kids had something to aim at, problem solved.

In this day and age, I'd just put up a camera in the gym and figure out who the phantom pooper was.

Interesting. The description of that kid and his mom fits my classmate to a "T". I guess there is one in every lot. The same year as Poopie we also had a girl that was so enormous that we were actually afraid of her. She could already barely move but her parents sent enough money for her to buy two or three lunches every day. Looking back we had a lot of enabling going on.

I met Poopie many years later as an adult. He was strung out on drugs and weighed about 100 pounds. I did not recognize him at first. When someone called him by name I was gobsmacked.

When I was 8 years old I had to pee really bad while writing at the blackboard along with the rest of the class. I leaned against the chalk tray thinking the pressure would help hold it back ... and suddenly I was peeing right through my pants and into the chalk tray. I was busted when the teacher checked the pants of all the boys.

In first grade I asked the teacher 3 times to let me go to the restroom. She refused saying I could wait until recess. I swear I pissed my pants and didn’t even realize it though I did feel some water under my shoe and wondered where it came from. She came over and whispered “Do you need to go to the restroom?”

I said “No”.

Who keeps giving these kids civil rights? They don't have any!

They have no rights to privacy in school. We look in their lockers and cars all the time. If they are on private property, they are subject to inspection. This is why they can't drink or smoke or get married, or drive a car. We can legally discriminate against them. They have individual rights when they reach "majority". Until then, they are pawns in the system.
