When did our schools become prison camps?

With each passing day there are more school lockdowns, with commando-style
raids on our children. Police doing sweeps of the halls with their guns
drawn and attack dogs at their side. How much longer will it be before one
of our children is hurt or killed by the actions of our law enforcement?

Our kids are forced into mandatory drug tests, but not tested for alcohol.
Why is this? Why has the state gone to such great lengths to treat our
children as prisoners and our schools as prisons?

Could it be that the U.S. holds the highest incarceration rate in the world,
and they are preparing our kids for their future?
