22. The state Atty General should pick this up....
Edited on Sat Feb-21-04 04:45 PM by rasputin1952
The Asst Principal, (from what I gather in the story), was in possession of illegal substances. Under Federal Law, the penalties, if convicted, are automatically doubled as this was on school property. the fact that Federal Laws might have been violated as well, should make this man see things in a different light.

That is the first thing.

The planting of evidence is often a felony, depending on state and local laws.

There is much more going on here that needs to be investigated. There are possibilities of this being racially motivated, (caveat: unknown by info given); has this happened before; and what would posses someone to do this in the first place?

Just about the last thing that should happen, is that this be dropped. Parents should be at the school Mon AM and demand that this individual be taken out of the system. the school board needs to be shown that this type of behavior is much more than "unethical", it is criminal. If I were a parent in this school district, I would be on the phone with the DA, state Atty Gen's office, and DEA/FBI. I would not let this lay for a second, and I would demand looking into possible previous incidents this individual may have taken part in.

A possession charge can ruin a kid; bad enough if it was a kid that brought it in. For a school official to do this, is an outrage, and the community should demand that he be fired, his credentials revoked, and criminal charges be pressed. There is NO justification for behavior such as this.

Then come the Civil Lawsuits!


Edited: left out word for clarification of individual
