79-year-old crossing guard fired for refusing drug test

Commentary from Helen and Harry Highwater from their Great Unknown News website:

"Toward the end of this article, the victim, Mr Light, says he should have submitted to the drug test after all -- an understandable sentiment, after what he is been through.

But we respectfully disagree.

Mr Light is clearly a good citizen and a good American, and he ought to simply trust his gut reaction:

"It hit me the wrong way," he said. "I'm old, old-fashioned." Chances are, he remembers something from his own school days, called the presumption of innocence.

Or perhaps he remembered the long-forgotten
Fourth Amendment:

The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.

Thank you, Mr Light, for standing up for what's right."
