The article goes on to say the settlement has some students and parents worried about safety.
Random weapons searches have been a tactic used to deter crime in Detroit Public Schools for at least the past two decades.
Michael J. Steinberg of the ACLU said his plaintiffs filed the suit because they didn't want to see the schoolhouse turned into a jailhouse. I guess a killing field is more to their liking.
Other parents feel quite differently than the shills for the ACLU.
"The most innocent looking one could be the guilty one," said Tami Miller, whose 15-year-old daughter, Makyia Miller, will be a sophomore next year at Mumford High School.
The random searches, she said, "helped to protect the kids from outside dangers."
Some students are frightened by the end of random searches.
"We've had plenty of incidents where people have brought guns or knives or blades," said Lasanna Dodd , 17, an 11th-grader.
"If they're not going to do those searches anymore, that makes me want to go to different schools," in another city, she said.
Once again, the ACLU has managed to force the authorities to cater to the whims of the minority by sacrificing the security and freedoms of the majority.
