Yes this entire post is opinionated.
I guess the students of Trinity Lutheran School can rest easy now. According to the Monroe County Chief Assistant Prosecutor there was no crime when students were strip searched at the school. Never mind the fact that one of the people suspended (with pay) was a custodian who helped in the strip search though his role in the search is unknown to me. A custodian? Yeah this person has been trainedÂ in the psychologyand educationÂ of children. Must have been that class between Sweep the floors 101 and Take out the Trash 110 called Strip Searching Students and its Benefit on Young Girls 220.
The principal hasnt decided if he is coming back after the suspension but has been offered a financial package should he choose to resign. The principals attorney had this to say :
"I don't think he did anything wrong, In my opinion, he acted appropriately. He deserves to remain as principal."
The school seems to have agreed.
In short... They intend to sweep it under the rug to avoid making the school and community look bad. Hopefully parents remember this in Monroe when they elect the next officials. Whether they be Democrat or Republican, they arent fit to hold their positions in my opinion. I would hope parents would care more about their kids than to send their kids back to Trinity. Whats going on just isnt right in my opinion.
There has been a lawsuit filed on behalf of at least one student.
