School Drug Raid

South Carolina police exonerated in school drug raid

South Carolina prosecutors won't be charging police officers who drew their guns during a high school drug raid. The state's attorney general says the police tactics were "grossly inappropriate," but there was no criminal intent. Last November, Goose Creek police near Charleston were called by the principal to investigate marijuana sales. The arriving officers ordered students to the floor, prowled the halls with a drug-sniffing dog and drew their guns. No drugs were found. The case drew allegations of excessive force and racism because many of the youngsters are black. Two lawsuits have been filed. The principal has resigned.
