Living in this day and age, knowing the drug culture and the harm caused by it, I think that Savanah Redding and her mother over-reacted to the search. It might have been carried out a little differently, but no teenager is likely to admit to their principal that they have drugs on their person. How would you suggest an adult intervene to find the truth? Having worked in a public school for years and having lost a child from addiction, I would give my right arm if some one in authority had informed my family that our son was involved in drugs before he became addicted. I was never given the opportunity to intervene because drugs are so insidious you may not know until it is too late. The hold they have on your child is unfortunately stronger than you. It seems that enough time has gone by that Savannah and her family could release the humiliation and embarrassment caused by this search, go on with their lives and thank goodness someone in the school is looking out for the safety of our children. Those painful memories are a lot easier to discard than the loss of a child and the frustration you are left with as a result of this culture. Life is not always neat and tidy and I do worry about this family if this humiliation which occurred so long ago is still causing them so much trauma.
