Teen Wins Settlement After School Takes Facebook Password

Government schools think they are just like Obama and have absolute power.
Check it out:

A Minnesota school district has agreed to pay $70,000 to settle a lawsuit that claimed school officials violated a student’s constitutional rights by viewing her Facebook and email accounts without permission.

The lawsuit, filed in 2012 by the American Civil Liberties Union of Minnesota, alleged that Riley Stratton, now 15, was given detention after posting disparaging comments about a teacher’s aide on her Facebook page, even though she was at home and not using school computers.

The ACLU also said administrators viewed her online conversations between the then-Minnewaska Area Middle School sixth-grader and a boy because of a complaint the two were using computers to talk about sex.

“I was in tears,” Riley told the Star-Tribune on Tuesday. “I was embarrassed when they made me give over my password.”
