Possession of a toaster?Submitted by lida ricky on Mon, 03/10/2014 - 13:40
My grandson is 17 - a good kid, lives with his dad (my daughter is his step-mom). He's been heavy on my mind all weekend in a "something's off" way, so when my daughter called last night I asked if something was going on with him.
She said yeah he's had a rough weekend. His mom's birthday is coming up and he bought her a toaster for a gift because her old one died. His school does random locker searches and found the receipt for the toaster among his things. They called my son in law to come to the school so they could do a thorough search of my grandson, his locker and his car.
It seems a toaster can be used to dry marijuana. Kids these days, eh? *eyeroll*
My son in law told them the toaster was a birthday gift for his mom, but they still wanted to do the search. I can't believe it, but he gave permission for the search so my grandson would be cleared and they'd leave him alone. They found nothing btw, but the kid is anxious and humiliated.
WTF? Possession of a toaster - actually just a receipt for a toaster - is grounds for a search?
I am so pissed.
