I do not agree that a 13 year old should never be strip searched. You are speaking in absolutes, and I'm certain there are circumstances that would warrant this kind of search. I am curious as to why her parents were not called and required to be present during the search. This is what I am not certain about...whether, procedurally, the school is required to do this. I'm pretty sure the police are, but I am not sure of the school. Often in these situations, locus parentis (I think that is the legal term) is in place.This was a dispicable act. A 13 year old girl should NEVER EVER be strip searched. At least not without the consent of the parents and or police there also. And from what I can tell they didn't even contact the parents, much less the police.
