strip-search at Arizona middle school

Looking for ibuprofen, following rumors, unnamed school administrators at a middle school in Safford Arizona detained a 13 year old student for 2 hours, refused to let her call her mother, and strip-searched her. The Captiol Media Services' story by Howard Fischer was carried by the Arizona Daily Star here.

That this happened, that the girl's mother filed suit, that the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals supported the search, are some of the reasons we should be ashamed of Arizona, and ashamed the Federal court upheld such barbaric behavior.
