Teen strip-search ruled unconstitutional

yuna49 (905461) writes "The US Supreme Court today ruled 8-1 that the strip search of a 13-year-old girl by officials in an Arizona middle school was unconstitutional. However, by a vote of 7-2, the Court also ruled that the individual school officials could not be held personally liable. A suit for damages against the school district itself is still going forward. We discussed this case at length back in March when the Court decided to hear the case on appeal."

Why is it considered a felony for a 13-year-old girl to send nude pictures of herself to her "friends", but it isn't a felony (quite the opposite) for some crusty old police officers to strip her naked and inspect her for bringing prescription drugs to school?
