And important part of this story was left out of this article.

Riiiiiiiiggggghhhhhttt. That sounds like a peachy defense.


"The U.S. Department of Justice and the FBI could not find any criminal motive on the part of the school."


I can hear that argument play out in other cases too:

You would need an understanding of laws to understand the decision made by the FBI and the Justice Department.

I see we're in full agreement. The school administrators violated the law and it's apparent they knew they were doing so by attempting to initially deny theirl spying on children, but only admitted to it when pressed to the wall.


Now we have the administration's department of JustUs letting all those government-paid union criminals involved walk free.

After the passing of the Patriot Act..why would you expect people to get upset if they are being spied on?
The Bush Administration made it clear that this was a perfectly acceptable thing to do.
So why would people get upset about it now?

None of the PAs allowed anything like this. But even if they did the kid would've had to be suspected of working with terrorists in order for the PA to apply. Also the audio/video would've had to cross international boundaries.


You do know that's what the PA was used for right? Monitoring suspected terrorists' calls/data transmissions in and out of the country? Do you think customs shouldn't be allowed to go through people's bags when their coming into the country?

"It's too bad this story isn't getting more news. I would greatly enjoy hearing more democrats defend this miscarriage of justice."


I wish there were more posts, too.

You can't be serious! We are talking about schools spying on students after school hours. We are not talking about suspected terrorists and national security issues.

(Which, by the way, is STILL going on with the blessings of the Obama administration. The real question should be why AREN"T the liberals in an uproar about this now like they were when Bush was doing it?)

You're right...there simply is not a criminal case here, because there was no apparent criminal intent.
