“It affects everywhere, and action is necessary everywhere.”

‘It’ being the scourge of drugs. Of course.

Given the threat of drugs, you can excuse anything – even this:

Ten police officers with a sniffer dog swooped on a secondary school and searched 2,000 pupilsamid drug rumours.The squad of officers, along with teachers and a sniffer dog, were involved in the unannounced mass search.

How many drugs did they find? Errr…

The operation was carried out at Ivybridge Community College last Friday but no illegal substances were found.

Sounds rather familiar.

The police are unrepentant:

Police Sergeant John Livingstone, neighbourhood team leader for Ivybridge, said: “I got a call from the deputy principal about the concerns that had been raised by parentsthat drugs would be going into the college last Friday.We got hold of a drugs dog, which stood in the gateway to school, and officers were at the other entrance.We wanted to show that the college and police are working together.”Sgt Livingstone added: “If we had informed parents it would serve no purpose and the principal and deputy principal didn’t tell the teachers. I also only told the officers who would be at the college. We will be working closely with Ivybridge Community College in the future.”

Why? You didn’t find anything. Maybe your intelligence was wrong?

South West Devon MP Gary Streeter said: “Ivybridge Community College has zero tolerance and rightly so. I’m sure parents will be pleased with the swift action that was taken. It is a worry but it just goes to show nowhere is free from the worry of drugs. It affects everywhere, and action is necessary everywhere.”

*sigh*

    We are afflicted with incompetents everywhere we look. It’s quite a deliberate recruitment process. Post to follow at some point.

    nowhere is free from the worry of drugs

    That’s the fucking problem! The worry of drugs, though the action they should take is to stop worrying!

    Morons! :x

    After all, some people stand to make a great deal of money by ensuring drugs remain illegal.
    And power/control of course….

    What utter fuckwittery. How much longer are we going to have to put up with this charade? It’s not drugs that wreck lives, it’s the “war on drugs” that wrecks lives.

    Ivybridge Community College has zero tolerance and rightly so. I’m sure parents will be pleased with the swift action that was taken.

    Not this parent, if my kids were still of school age, and attending that school. Not that I think it’s a good idea to do drugs of any kind at school, but it should be nothing to do with the police. God, I hate the self-righteous.

    As GT points out above (and on this occasion I agree with him 100%), it’s all about money. Well, what isn’t? Just think how many people would be on the dole if drugs were legalised. We’re talking tens, if not hundreds of thousands worldwide. Someone would have to do a flip of what happened after prohibition, and find another job for all the good ole boys. Tobacco, perhaps? We’re well on the road there…

      Well, we’d expect the police and the school authorities to push the concept that constant surveillance is a normal, everyday part of their lives.
