Safety In Compton's Schools

COMPTON, Calif. (AP) - Photographs and testimony in a racial discrimination lawsuit appear to show that on-duty school police officers slept in their squad cars.

The lawsuit was filed by a white former officer and two Latino officers who claim the Compton Unified School District disciplined them but ignored dereliction of duty by black officers. Mark Shiva, Victor Ayala and Sergio Reynoso also allege they were subjected to racial slurs, ridiculed and retaliated against after they made complaints against black colleagues.

In this one story we get police, schools, race, and lawsuits. All we need now is one of the cops (or a teacher, for that matter) having sex with a student.
