DRUG RAID PRINICIPAL HEARS RECESS BELL

'Is metabolic processes are now 'istory! 'E's off the twig! 'E's kicked the bucket, 'e's shuffled off 'is mortal coil, run down the curtain and joined the bleedin' choir invisibile!! THIS IS AN EX-PRINCIPAL!!

MONCKS CORNER, S.C. (AP) - A high school principal announced his resignation Monday after coming under fire over a November drug sweep in which police with guns drawn ordered students to the floor.

"I realized it is in the best interest of Stratford High School and of my students for me to make a change," George McCrackin said in a statement.

School officials asked Goose Creek police to come into the school Nov. 5 after receiving reports of marijuana sales on campus. Police said dogs sniffed drug residue on 12 book bags but found no drugs. No one was arrested.

The raid led to allegations of excessive force and racism, because many of the students were black.

District Superintendent J. Chester Floyd said McCrackin will be reassigned to a still-undetermined position. But he said McCrackin will probably spend the coming weeks preparing for two lawsuits filed by students over the incident [too funny]


Being a school principal sure hasn't become any easier. I can sympathize to an extent. But for anyone who saw the video of the high school hallway looking as if was in full Columbine mode, well, I can't sympathize with that. There was a suspicion of drug posession by someone, somewhere on campus and the reaction was over the top by about 1,000-fold.

High school memories were never meant to be like this.
Maybe more like
this [warning, not work safe], but even then ....

I can't believe the Dead Parrot sketch transcript was so hard to find
