Forget the principal, call the DOJ

The federal government clearly doesn’t have enough important things to do, what with chasing down all the evil old baseball players who used steroids and hounding escort service owners to their deaths. This week brings the news that the feds intend to insert themselves into the process of school discipline. Its not sufficient, apparently, to have schoolyard bullies dealt with by the folks who have always done so – parents, teacher and school principals. Nope. Now we need to start threatening federal civil rights prosecutions and the like. This seems like an even better use of federal dollars and Justice Department resources as the not at all misguided federal prosecutions of Barry Bonds and Roger Clemens, and is clearly likely to yield as many results as the highly successful Enron Task Force. As Charlie Brown might say, good grief.
