Temecula, Calfornia – Parents sue the school district that authorized the undercover drug operation.
Last December, Doug and Catherine Snodgrass’ 17-year-old autistic high school son was arrested after twice buying marijuana for an undercover Riverside county police officer. Earlier this month the parents said:
“We felt like our family was totally violated by the sheriff’s department and the school district,”
The press release states:
“Lawsuit Highlights Cruel Practices and Ineffectiveness of Undercover Narcotics Operations in Schools.”
According to the You Tube video posted below:
The undercover operation, titled “Operation Glass House,” spanned a few months and included undercover officers in three area high schools: Chaparral, Temecula Valley, and Rancho Vista Continuation. The officers posed as regular high school students and would ask other students for drugs. Twenty-two students were arrested – the majority of them are reported to be special needs students like the Snodgrass’ son.
