In A “Lawless America” police strip,line up and photograph students without cause, warrants or any due process.
Preface by Joseph McEvoy.WWH/CJE - This is wrong on so many levels.
Several crimes were committed by police and school administrators. Unlawful detention, battery, assault, child abuse just to name a few.
The US Constitution: After 9/11 the Constitution was made “Quaint” and useless. Politicians give “lip service” to it and make laws against it.
Here in “Lawless America” the poor and the powerless are used and abused by a system that works only for the wealthy and well connected. This assault on children would never happen at a private school.
The media and the wealthy that control it, play down crimes by the corrupt, violent and athoratian militerised police. and judicial system, that serves only the interests of the monied and influential.
Each day the once loved, admired and sought after freedoms of America fade like converging rails into the distance. America, the word now brings fear to it’s citizenry.
To the millions maybe billions who believe in the dream. Do Not come here! There is no Justice. There is no fairness. There are no more freedoms, rights or possibilities.
The dream is now the nightmare. The hope is fading and the pie all eaten by the few. There is no one or thing that will save us.
I await the’Knock’.
By Genevieve Curtis,kfoxtv.com – HORIZON CITY, Texas — Parents of Horizon High School students said Horizon City police made their children line up and strip down while officers photographed the students’ tattoos.
Olga Rayos said she’s angry after her son was humiliated at school Wednesday.
Her son, Angel, told her police made many students get in a long line during lunch in front of other students and photographed their tattoos saying it was for gang activity information.
Rayos said police made her son take his shirt off. Rayos also said her son is not in a gang and only has one tribal tattoo on his shoulder and his name on his arm.
The school district said principals and administrators did not know what police were doing and it’s against school policies because they should have been notified.
Police Chief Michael McConnel said that he was told by officers they took photos of students potentially affiliated with gangs.
“I was a little bit concerned right then myself because that’s not typically something we do,” McConnel said. “I think they were under the impression that they could do that.”
McConnel also said that what police did was not against the law. He said they can collect information about potential gang activity, but he was not a fan of the way it was handled.
“I didn’t like it and I’m sure some of the parents didn’t like it,” he said. “We destroyed those photos becuase i didn’t approve of the way they were collected, and I can certainly understand the parents concerns as well.” Read more…
