Example text

We were once a society that valued individual liberty and privacy. Increasingly, however, we have morphed into a culture that has quietly accepted surveillance in virtually every area of our lives–police and drugsniffing dogs in our children's schools, national databases that track our finances and activities, sneak-and-peek searches of our homes by government agents without our knowledge or consent, and anti-terrorism laws that turn average Americans into suspected criminals. All the while, police officers dressed in black Darth Vader-like costumes have become armed militias instead of the civilian peacekeepers they were intended to be.

People are becoming accustomed or conditioned to what's going on now with the raping of the Fourth Amendment, for example. One of the things that is taught so badly in our schools, from elementary and middle school through graduate school, including journalism schools, is the Constitution—our liberties and rights. Too many Americans appear unconcerned about the loss of fundamental individual liberties—such as due process, the right to confront their government accusers in a courtroom, and the presumption of innocence–that are vital to being an American.

As a consequence, school districts are increasingly teaming up with law enforcement to create what some are calling the "schoolhouse to jailhouse track" by imposing a "double dose" of punishment: suspension or expulsion from school accompanied by an arrest by the police and a trip to juvenile court. In this way, having failed to learn much in the way of civic education while in school, young people find themselves in a learning environment where they have no true rights and government authorities have near total power over them and can violate their constitutional rights whenever they see fit.
