Strip search in Atlantic school

The Des Moines Register reports

School officials in Atlantic forced five teenage girls to take off their clothing for a search after a classmate reported $100 missing from her purse, according to the girls' families and two lawyers.

The classmate and a female counselor stood watch in the girls' locker room at Atlantic High School as the five girls removed their clothing, lifted up their underwear, and in one case took off all her clothing, according to lawyers Ed Noethe of Council Bluffs and Matt Hudson of Harlan.

Strip-searching is illegal in Iowa schools

And the kicker: "I guess I really can't comment on that because of confidentiality of those involved," Crozier [interim superintendent] said.

He's only concerned with confidentiality after he abused 5 girls.
