Title: Drug dog to visit the high school?
Post by carla on Apr 12th, 2008 at 4:18pm
It's my understanding that kids are smoking weed at the high school during school hours. Usually in the locker rooms.

Who is supposed to be bringing the drug dog there? I asked my kids if the dog has ever been there and they said no...not that they are aware of.

It makes the kids aware that nobody gives a **** about them when they know other schools crack down on that type of behavior.

Why have a drug dog if he never is used?  I often have thought they should walk around the car washers & conventience store with them.  Any where there is a group of people, if they scatter you know to follow and see were they go.

I saw it in use once, but he wasn't searching for anything. Just at a scene where several people had been told to sit on a curb. You're right, though. We don't even know if the dog is any good at searches.

But that reminds me, why isn't the school doing locker inspections? You'd think they'd do them once or twice a year. Unannounced, of course.

I thought they were doing random drug testing of any one playing sports & if caught they would be out so many games.  What happened to zero drug tolerance?

"Puppy" doesn't visit often, but was there within the past two weeks.  Never heard if anything was found.

And, you probably won't.... at least officially, its the usual case of... if you don't hear about it then it doesn't exist.  No matter what is found or not.  Or, if you want to be super clean... then just tell a couple of kids we are going to have locker inspections next tuesday .   ;) ;)

When I lived in the south, Police down there did random searches in the school, on the parking lot, and even in the cars. NO ONE was told when it happened. I asked why we couldn't do that here several years ago and was told it would have to go by the school board first.  Well, there goes the element of suprise! I don't think K-9 has a car anymore.

Right after I posted that, at least one kid was caught smoking cigs in the locker room. They gotta keep at it.

I heard about a kid dealing at school a week or so ago. And he's been dealing at the school for a long time. I'll try to remember who told me. The kid's parent(s) is well connected, if I remember correctly.

Dealing on school property ups how many years they get when caught.  Just takes one going to prison to send a message that the school is serious about a safe environment for the students.  A kid with parents that are well connected would be even a bigger feather in their hat to catch.

But so many are related to each other here. That's a serious problem in Cairo. Everyone covering for their aunt, uncle, cousin, niece, nephew, etc. Few are held accountable for shoddy work nor criminal activity.
