school police increasingly arresting american students

school police increasingly arresting american studentsfrom To follow-up and accentuate yesterday's video on the public school/prison system, this news clip elaborates on the increasing police presence in schools and the drastic increase in students being arrested. On the surface you might think that the numbers would be related to increased drug usage or violence, and there is that, but look deeper and you'll find that much of it is due to a ridiculous and ever expanding list of arrestable offenses and increasing police presence. I, myself, can remember a time when a senior prank was just a prank, not a felony. The criminalization of youthful behavior promotes both conformity and disenfranchisement, so at the end of the day we are left with a bunch of mindless automatons (good citizens) or thoughtless rebels (who will eventually populate the real prison system).

This is so ridiculous I actually have a problem believing it. If these people are not actual police, but school police, they have no authority to arrest anybody.

WTF is going on?
