At a school that is around 127 miles from Tucson, Arizona a 13 year old girl Savana Redding was accused by her male middle school Vice Principal Kerry Wilson of possessing Ibuprofen.  The School she attends has a zero-tolerance for prescription and non prescription drugs with out written consent.  She denied the accusations from the vice principal Wilson.  When there was nothing found inside Savana’s backpack he ordered a school nurse and Wilson’s assistant to conduct a strip search on the child.  They were both females.  They demanded her to remove her all her clothes down to her underwear and bra.  They pulled her bra out.  No drugs were found.

In her re-count of the event Savana Redding said, “The strip search was the most humiliating experience I have ever had.  I held my head down so that they could not see that I was about to cry.”  The American Civil Liberties Union has offered to help Savana and the Redding Family.  In California a federal appeals court ruled against the school.  The court stated “Common sense informs us that directing a 13 year old girl to remove her clothes,partially revealing her breasts and pelvic area, for allegedly possessing ibuprofen, was excessively intrusive.”

It also said the school’s measures into creating a drug free environment were “Overzealous and truamatizing to those they claim to serve” The court went on to reprimand the school’s decision to so brutally search that poor minor girl.  If that were my child that the school chose to profile, I would come unglued.  There would be no stopping me.  They’d better be wearing mouth guards them two women in that school who so chose to make my girl dress down to her britchers and pull out her bra.  There would be no end to my fury.  I hope they get punished to the full extent of the law.  That girl should be removed from that school and that vice principal should be fired for profiling that child.  He is not an officer of the law pulling gang members over.  He chose that child for pure ignorance and put her through a very horrible experience. 

Those woman obviously do not have minds of there own.  If my superior r told me to do something like that I would tell them to go screw themselves walk out and report it immediately.  Loss of job or not.  Those two woman are ignorant.  I hope they all lose there jobs over this.  I hope that Savana can put this behind her and move on with her life.  Schools have a responsibility to care and nurture our kids.  I understand as they get into older grades there are more problems and mischief amongst our youth.  And that stiffer measures are needed to weed out problems with kids.  Strip searching is not okay.  They found nothing.  Nothing.  Those people should be ashamed of themselves.  Those woman should have to register as sexual offenders teach them some embarrassment.
