California Public School and police abuse teenaged students

Thursday, June 12th, 2008

The Associated Press reports that students at the El Camino High School in Oceanside, California were put through mental and emotional abuse by teachers and local police last month. Here’s the CNN link. The students were told some 26 of their classmates had been killed in auto accidents. Some students wept, others became hysterical or just stunned. But the teachers and police lied. The 26 students were alive and well. According to school personnel this was done to try to scare the students about drinking and driving.
Now let me get this straight – teachers are required to report any suspicions they may have that a student is being abused, physically or emotionally, but it is OK for the teachers AND THE POLICE to emotionally abuse them. When there is a teacher or student death at these schools now days the students are required to get grief counseling, yet:

“They were traumatized, but we wanted them to be traumatized,” said guidance counselor Lori Tauber, who helped organize the shocking exercise and got dozens of students to participate. “That’s how they get the message.”

Wow. These are the same tactics used to break prisoners in prisoner of war camps, notably Nazi and North Vietnamese! (more…)
