NC School Strip-searched 10 year old Student in search of a $20 bill

The parents of 10 year-old J.C. Cox have sued a North Carolina public school district for allegedly strip-searching their son in search of a $20 bill lost by another student.

J.C. had twice told school officials he did not have the missing money, which was later found in the school cafeteria, attorneys for the Rutherford Institute said announcing the complaint filed in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of North Carolina.

Institute attorneys charge that a former Union Elementary School assistant principal violated J.C.'s Fourth Amendment rights when she allegedly ordered the fifth grader to disrobe down to his underwear and subjected him to an aggressive strip-search that included rimming the edge of his underwear.

Public school teachers

Public school teachers wanted justice over what they thought was stolen money? A little hypocritical dont you think?

Public officials need to suffer for their false accusations...

Even when a warrant is served and no evidence found this should be the law that applies and it should convict the prosecutors/police (who represent the false witness) and their false witnesses alike...

Deuteronomy 19:16-21

16 If a false witness rise up against any man to testify against him that which is wrong;

17 Then both the men, between whom the controversy is, shall stand before the Lord, before the priests and the judges, which shall be in those days;

18 And the judges shall make diligent inquisition: and, behold, if the witness be a false witness, and hath testified falsely against his brother;

19 Then shall ye do unto him, as he had thought to have done unto his brother: so shalt thou put the evil away from among you.

20 And those which remain shall hear, and fear, and shall henceforth commit no more any such evil among you.

21 And thine eye shall not pity; but life shall go for life, eye for eye, tooth for tooth, hand for hand, foot for foot.

as nasty and vile as this is

in a few days,or 4 min youtube it will all go away
forgotten by the over medicated,over worked stressed out
masses,and it will be back to business for the school system

If we deny truth before your very eyes,then the rest of what we have to say,is of little consequence
