Nick Vitori shared the overview below, whichi details the theft of property done by some wearing North Huntingdon police badges.
Date of Incident: 10/23/2014
Outfit: North Huntingdon Police Department
Phone: (724) 863-8800
The North Huntingdon Police department located in Westmoreland County Pennsylvania illegally seized cell phones of 11 or more students. The police department is not commenting too much on how or why the cell phones were confiscated but have said they had no warrant. This is clearly a unreasonable search and seizure and against there constitutional rights!
Editors Note: What would it be called if you and some friends stolen the cell phones from a group of teenagers? Just because those who took the property wore badges does not grant their actions any extra leeway. Theft is theft.
This happens way to much in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania and needs to stop. The people must know that these kids rights were not upheld – causing me to think if and when the police could do this too me.
I’ve talked to some legal experts and they have given me the run around trying to defend this clear violation of the constitution. This needs to end one way or another I hope you can help!
A spokesman for the Norwin School District issued only this statement:
Norwin School District cannot comment on the specifics of an ongoing police investigation. Those questions now fall under the jurisdiction of the North Huntingdon Police Department.
