    Parents Upset After Kids Are Strip-Searched at Camp

    These counselors had NO right to do this. I would be furious if anyone did this to my child.

    EAST CHICAGO, Ind. Parents say their children were strip-searched at a city-run day camp by counselors who were searching for $140 that disappeared from another worker's backpack.
    April Hinton said her 8-year-old son told her about the search that happened at the Martin Luther King Center last week.
    The camp director who ordered the search has been suspended, and an investigation by the city Human Resources Department is expected to end this week, city spokesman Damian Rico said Wednesday.
    "We are interviewing everybody that was involved. Parents, workers, everyone," Rico said.
    Rose Jefferson said her 9-year-old son called her from the center last Monday as the searches were taking place.
    "He ran to the front desk and told him what was happening, and they let him call home," Jefferson said. "He called me and said, 'Mama, they want me to take my clothes off.'
    "I said you don't take your clothes off for anybody. Come on home."

    OMG! What on earth were they thinking?! I can hear the Lawyers congregating now...with business cards in hand for the parents!
    "WE SEEK FOR THE TRUTH. WE SEEK JUSTICE.
    THE COURTS REQUIRE IT. THE VICTIMS CRY FOR IT
    AND GOD DEMANDS IT!"

    That worker was a fool to have left that much money unattended in a backpack. I wonder if they found the money if it was really even missing.

    Wow what were they thinking?
    One of the parents should go teach them a lesson!

    I wonder if money was really missing. Maybe it was made up so they could do the strip-search. Who sits around and thinks doing that to children is a good idea?

    Aprils Hilton's 8 year old son was sure assertive, Good for him! I bet he was the only child that didn't willingly comply. That child handled the situation perfectly. In my experience most children are taught to listen and follow directions of adults as opposed to being taught to think for themselves. His mother should be very proud of herself and her son!

    Why was it not an option to make the children simply empty their back packs and pockets?

    Its truly scary the people we trust our children with.

    $140 is hardly worth the trouble these people are in now. They probably cost themselves much much more.

    OMG If someone stripe searched my child, I'd *****-slap that counselor to the moon. THIS is exactly how pedophiles lure children into undressing for them.
    This makes me furious.

    I remember back in about 1983 when there was a drug problem going around my high school, and there were kids being pulled into the assistant principal's office and randomly strip searched - down to their underwear, regardless of sex.

    It was a huge disaster. I have always wondered, even as a kid, what the hell they were thinking. The parents went nuts.

    Twenty years later, it shouldn't even cross their minds.

    As it should be. Thank goodness we have some out there looking out for our civil liberties as there are so many in power now doing their best to take them from us. In so many ways.

    And they do it for everyone. Even groups most people don't like here in America.

    Come on now. There's no indication these people are pedofiles. Stop trying to create controversy where there is none (for now). Not everyone is a pedofile, but there sure are alot of stupid people out there.

    I wonder if they stripped searched all the counselors too. How do they know it was one of the kids that did it. Or maybe this person thought they had that money there and had put it somewhere else and forgot. I know I've done that.
    I have had times I could have sworn I had something in a certain place and then thought it was missing , then found it somewhere else I forgot I put or hid it.
    Maybe not likely but how do we know for sure. But no matter what, this should have not happened to these children period.
