    Well, this goes to show if you’re carrying a backpack into a school then
    a mandatory random inspection should be inforced.

    If students see this inspection happening, things like, drugs, guns, knives
    whatever that is not needed while getting an education, items will remain off the school property.

    Your little darling may whine, but rules are rules, it only takes a few to
    ruin it for all……lesson learned !!
