Editor: When did our schools become prison camps?

With each passing day there are more school lock-downs, 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 are hurt, or worse killed, by the actions of our law 
enforcement? Our kids forced into mandatory drug test, but not tested for 
alcohol. Why is this?

Our children are students, not prisoners! Why have the states 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?
