NYTimes: ‘How Far Can They Go?’ Police Search of Hundreds of Students Stokes Lawsuit and Constitutional Questions by Jacey Fortin:
Worth County High School was buzzing with late-year activities on April 14. Seniors had recently taken their group photo for the yearbook and were days away from voting for their prom king and queen.
But on that Friday, beginning around 8 a.m., dozens of police appeared on campus and announced that the school was on lockdown, which lasted until about noon. In that time, police officers searched all, or nearly all, of the approximately 900 students at the school, in Sylvester, in the southwest part of the state.
