An elementary school in Clinton, North Carolina says an assistant principal was within her legal rights when she stripped a 10-year-old boy down to his underwear because he had been accused of stealing $20.
Clarinda Cox told WRAL that her son, Justin, was forced to take off everything but his underwear and undershirt earlier this month after several students said he had stolen $20 from another student.
Justin insisted that he had picked up the money and given it back to the girl after she dropped it. The girl later said someone had stolen the money and several students pointed to Justin.
The boy recalled that Union Elementary School Assistant Principal Teresa Holmes took him into a bathroom and ordered him to take off his clothes.
“She didn’t ask me if she could, she told me, ‘Now I have to strip search you,’ ” Justin said.
Clarinda Cox stated if the North Carolina elementary school principal had called her, she would have come to the school and searched her son. The female assistant principal, Teresa Holmes strip searched the third grade student in a private room. After discovering Cox did not have the missing $20 tucked away somewhere on his body, she gave the student a hug. The money was later found near where it was initially lost, under a cafeteria table where the girl had been seated.
The third-grader’s mother is not satisfied with the North Carolina school district’s response and feels her son was violated during the strip search, according to her statements to WRAL News. inquisitr.com
Sampson County Schools spokesperson Susan Warren told WRAL that Holmes had not violated any rules because a male janitor was present for the search.
“She came up to him and rubbed her fingers around inside of his underwear,” Clarinda Cox explained. “If that isn’t excessively intrusive, I don’t know what is.”
strip search a 10 year old?!!!
I cant form a cohesive thought right now
I…they…look, I need an alibi & directions. No one’s going to die, but there will be brick therapy.
Here in NC. If you need some help with bail money and/or someone to set those bricks on fire before you toss them, let me know.
I cannot even with this fucking state. A TEN-YEAR-OLD CHILD. GOD ALMIGHTY THAT ISN’T EVEN OKAY EVEN A LITTLE BIT. WE ARE SO FAR FROM OKAY WITH THIS I CAN’T EVEN SEE IT FROM ORBIT.
