Shameful

In response to some students getting suspended for having drugs, school administrators lock down a school and ask the police to do a sweep. Then the administrators, in violation of school policy and contrary to police wishes, locked down the lockers which the dogs indicated on and left them that way for 4 hours so that all the students knew which students had there lockers searched. Then the administrators sent a note home to the parents implying that this had been done at police request; the police chief protests loudly that they were only there because they were asked to come by school administrators.

Oh, and the kicker is of the 31 lockers searched because a dog indicated NOT A SINGLE ONE HAD DRUGS. None. Nada. Not a scintilla.

But remember folks, a canine sniff never reveals any private items to the police because it can only indicate the presence of an illegal item.


Thanks to Christopher Coyle for the heads up.

Perhaps the dog was trained by the same people who trained this one:
