Libertarian Doug Burlison, a city councilman in Springfield, Missouri, writes in an editorial in the Springfield News-Leader:
A little over a week ago, Central High School conducted a lockdown for the purpose of a random drug search. This is the school that a couple of our children attend, and as parents, we wholeheartedly object to the fact that this happened, and that it is a standard policy for the R-12 school district.
