"Might"? How about "Took 55,000 pictures with the laptops' cameras"? Multiple lawsuits working their way towards the impoverishment of the school district taxpayers. But no jail time.
Federal prosecutors on Tuesday closed their investigation into Lower Merion School District's secret use of software to track student laptops, saying they found no evidence that anyone intentionally committed a crime.
The decision, announced by U.S. Attorney Zane Memeger, ended a six-month probe by the FBI into allegations that district employees might have spied on students through webcams on their school-issued laptops.
Not that this is a surprise. After all, these were government employees. Can't jail them. As I said almost 6 months ago:
The Wheels of Justice are fully engaged, I see. That will put government bureaucrats on notice that engaging in the creation of potential child pornography will be met with the sternest measures available to the school district.Maybe some of the folks who are so in love with activist government would like to explain what you do to government employees who take pictures of your children in their bedrooms. Oh well, I'm sure it will be totally different when they're running our health care.
You and me: Felony charges, jail until we make extortionate bail.
Them: Paid leave and "no comment" from the government PR Flack.
John Edwards was right after all. There really are two Americas. One is inhabited by you and me. The other is inhabited by government bureaucrats who seem to be able to commit felonies that would have you and me in jail facing 20 years, and looking at a million dollars for bail.
The Federales are on the case, although the over/under on a serious prosecution is probably 5:1 against.
