School Spying Scandal Gets Even More Bizarre: Student In Question Was Disciplined For Eating Candy
from the mike-&-ikes dept
The story of the school district that supposedly spied on some students keeps getting odder and odder. While the school district claims that it used the secret remote webcam activation technology 42 times — and only to track down stolen or lost laptops — it still hasn’t explained why this particular student was punished. He claims his laptop was not stolen and there was no reason to turn it on. The school claims that the assistant principal who supposedly confronted the student with an image from the webcam is being unfairly tarnished.
But here’s where it gets even odder. Apparently, the “improper act” that the student was disciplined for was an accusation of either drug use or drug selling. For what? Well, the image showed the student with Mike & Ikes candies, which do have a passing resemblance to pills, but (last we checked) do not appear to be controlled substances.
Now, there certainly could be more to this story, but the school has not done a particularly good job explaining its side of things.
