South Fayette School in Pennsylvania, along with a complicit criminal justice system, recently made headlines with its groundbreaking anti-bullying program, which apparently deters bullying by punishing bullied students.
It’s the approved Muslim model: Deter rape by punishing those who were raped.
“No one in our office who is authorized to give advice on wiretap issues or school conduct issues was ever contacted in this matter. We have made multiple attempts to contact the officer who wrote the citation and (the) results have been unsuccessful,” Manko said in a written statement. “We do not believe this behavior rises to the level of a citation.”
Odd that a police officer wouldn’t talk to a district attorney. Unless, of course, a little bit of hindsight made him realize his every move fell between vindictive and buffoonish.
Or illegality under the color of law. Keep this incident in mind the next time you feel like waxing rhapsodic about how the cops and judges would never wilfully seek to punish the innocent.
Oh, hell. What am I saying? Those who think cops can do no wrong, that the law is unimpeachable, will never get it until they find themselves in a similar situation. And maybe not even then.
Check out my new bestseller, Lightning Fall: A Novel of Disaster. Glenn Reynolds at Instapundit.com says: “Bill Quick has authored a terrific thriller that is also an all too plausible warning. Highly recommended!” Available in Kindle e-book or trade paperback formats.
