Posted on 05/21/2011 8:44:38 PM PDT by CedarDave
SANTA FE A federal judge has ordered the Santa Fe Public Schools to hire officers from the Transportation Security Administration which provides airport security to supervise searches of students at the Santa Fe High School prom today and at the coming Capital High School graduation. U.S. District Judge James O. Browning also directed that the searches must be "graduated," with pat-downs only if reasonable grounds are established first.

Background: Private security guards hired by the school district tried TSA-type searches at the prom for Capital High School. Unfortunately, they went too far (so the students say) so their parents sued to have the searches stopped. The judge instead ordered them to be conducted by TSA.
Yep! Bring in the professional molesters!
” to supervise searches of students at the Santa Fe High School prom today and at the coming Capital High School graduation”
Calling the ACLU ...... crickets....
I would protest and refuse to show up for either one.
A Federal agency searching kids at a prom?
Something is wrong with this picture.
Something is terribly wrong.
Kinda like Federal troops writing traffic tickets.
New Mexico is a swing state, leans blue. Maybe these measures will WAKE THEM UP! Over reach everywhere.
Can a judge really order this to happen? Does he have that much power? Why can’t the school hire professional security guards? Why does it have to be TSA goons?
Chalk up another reason to homeschool.
They did, they just weren't professional enough:
The two students 18-year-old Candice Herrera and her 16-year-old sister claim that a female security officer for Associated Security Industries, which is contracted by the district to provide security on campus and at school events, put her hands on their breasts and bra, and also ordered the women to spread their arms and legs while the guard conducted a search up their bare legs.
The sisters also had their purses searched and various items body lotion, prescription medicine, and nail clippers confiscated by district officials at the prom.
Wow this is great! Now you don’t have to wait until after the prom to get felt up!
Grounds like the gal is good lookin' and built.
Waiting for the first to complain about groping in ........
Sad, but true!
Right up your alley, comrade.
and let me add. It won’t be by a pimply clumsy 11th grader!! It will be by a very experienced older person!!! WOW!
I say this tongue in cheek but ISN’T this STATUTORY RAPE made legal (even at the airports). This sickens me. Read 3rd paragraph of my profile and it will explain my feelings on this.
The TSA was chartered to protect travelers, especially air travelers.
Someone needs to take them to court and say that schools are STATE matters.
This is practically a matter of Posse Comitatus -- bringing a Federal agency into day-to-day state affairs.
THIS HAS GOT TO STOP.
Curious, what does it mean the search must be 'graduated'? Start at the bottom for the body search and rise higher and higher?
A 'graduated mortgage payment' means start low with your mortgage payment and the payment continues to rise each month.
