School Made 11-Year-Old Girls Pull Down Their Pants for Disgusting Inspection: "The district superintendent has called these actions "not appropriate" and promised an investigation."

Parents are furious with administrators at a public school in Gustine, Texas, after learning that their kids were subjected to a partial strip-search and a humiliating, feces-related inspection.
School officials a Gustine Elementary routinely find that the gym floor has been smeared with human waste, and in an effort to unmask the culprit they went way too far. Boys were sent to one room, girls to another—and then administrators ordered both groups to pull down their pants. One parent told myfox8.com that the officials were checking  "to see if they could find anything," pertaining to the crime, which obviously implies a significant breach of the students' privacy, let alone basic dignity.
Indeed, 11-year-old Eliza Medina told local reporters that she felt violated, but didn't have a choice in the matter: "I felt uncomfortable and I didn't want to do it. I didn't want to, but I had to because all the kids had to."
The district superintendent has called these actions "not appropriate" and promised an investigation. He did clarify, however, that the kids only had to drop trow a little.
Medina claimed it was more than a little: "To like, where your butt is."
While the specific details of this story are uniquely disgusting—as far as I can recall—there's nothing unusual about a public school treating its students like inmates rather than autonomous human beings. Zero tolerance rules have gradually promoted a school environment where young people's fundamental rights are routinely disrespected. And every day brings more stories of kids who were abused by school authorities forinoffensive behaviorpointless adherence to protocol, or artistic expression.

  1. You do that to my daughter, you face charges of sexual assault. Who do these people think they are and where do they assume authority to behave like this?

  2. Heads would be rolling if this happened to my child.
    Bureaucrats at every level think they can do anything they want.
    STAND UP PEOPLE! It's time for us to show these idiots that WE control our own lives and that decisions of what happens to our children start and end with the parents. PERIOD.
    The fed gov destroying lives by siding with big pharma and corporations instead of the people.
    Fed gov thinking it's important to be fighting made up wars to keep the petro dollar and central banks in power, while the US falls apart. There's nothing left to protect anymore the country is in shambles... should be clear to most people by now.
    Bankers r@ping our economy.
    Cops killing people for pathetic reasons.
    We need to take back our country ASAP. It won't be long before a peaceful solution will no longer be an option both at home and abroad.

    The adults involved here should all be placed on the national list of people not able to work in any situation involving children. Anyone who would do this clearly cannot be trusted to be handling children. This kind of behavior shows that they are unable to handle difficult situations and do not have concern for the damage they can cause. They send a message that humiliation and sexual exposure is ok to young people who will be tomorrow's parents, teachers and medical professionals.
