      High school kids always figure it out immediately when a cop is posing as a student.  Teachers do, too.  That's just part of what makes planting narcs in high schools so stupid.  But law enforcement will continue to do the same thing over and over again, while expecting a different result.  I'm trying to recall what that is the definition of, but it escapes me now.  Oh well.

        Investigating kids just on speculation that they may be  doing something illegal feeds the distrust many people feel toward cops.

          right now. The entire populace has become the enemy. I'm hoping for better times to come.
