No foul in S.C. state terrorism of high-school students

Stratford High School in Goose Creek, SC might want to change its name to "Goose Step" High School. The Justice Department has determined that no one's civil rights were violated last year when 15 officers ordered 130 students to the floor and handcuffed 18 students while they searched lockers and book bags. They found no drugs and no weapons.

Despite the lack of arrests, the raid was an important lesson in civics for the students. They now have an inkling that "civil rights" is a phrase used solely for propaganda purposes internally and abroad. And the intimidation they experienced will undoubtedly keep many of them silent in the face of the government for the rest of their lives.
