Entire Student Section Detained, Forced to Have Blood/Urine Tests After Beer Can Found at Football Game

By Matt Agorist

Randolph, NJ — Parents of high school teenagers were outraged this weekend after dozens of their children were ordered to undergo forced blood and alcohol tests because officials found a beer can under the stadium during a football game. As parents tried to refuse the tests, they were told their children would be suspended for noncompliance.

Naturally, school officials are claiming that the forced blood and urine samples, taken under the threat of suspension, were done in the name of child safety.

According to a letter from Randolph Superintendent Jennifer Fano, the school is charged with enforcing the policy of mass drug tests for suspicion of drug or alcohol use among students.

The law requires that we send students out to be tested when it appears that they may be under the influence of drugs or alcohol. Given the events in question, the students in this area of the stadium were brought in to the school, separated into classrooms, and parents were contacted to pick their child up and have them screened. District policy and regulation states that failure to comply with a screening is deemed a positive test result and will result in a suspension from school.

After the can of beer was found, roughly 75 students were taken from the game and detained in classrooms where their parents were called and told they must comply with the tests. Noncompliance meant that the student would be automatically assumed guilty and face the consequences of a crime that they may or may not have actually committed.

According to a public Facebook post by Randolph High School student and Class of 2018 President Nate Pangaro,

Before the game could begin, an administrator went to the front and told everyone to be quiet. He announced that he found an opened beer can on the ground that rolled to him, and that someone should confess to (whose) it was before everyone was taken in for a breathalyzer test. No one confessed, so people went into the school each row at a time to be tested.

Some parents were outraged by the incident, according to DailyRecord.com.

“Everybody was just so confused, miscommunication,” said parent Stephanie Pangaro. “As a parent, you’re going to defend your child to the fullest when you know they’re innocent.”

The sheer number of students having to go out and get blood and urine tests overwhelmed the medical systems in town.

“Students then proceeded to emergency rooms in Dover, Denville, Morristown and Livingston,” Christopher C. Treston, a school board candidate, posted on his campaign Facebook page. “The emergency departments at Dover and at Morristown were not given any warning of what was coming, and were overwhelmed.”

As the Daily Record reports, Sheryll Lynne Penney, a former Randolph PTO president and mother of a 2017 Randolph High graduate, spoke exclusively in that capacity with the Daily Record. Penney said she had been contacted by several parents who expressed similar confusion and anger. Those parents said they believed their constitutional rights, as well as the rights of their children, had been violated.

“The students sign a code of conduct and they need to be held accountable, but so does the administration for handling the situation professionally,” Penney said.

In spite of forcing all 75 students to submit to unconstitutional blood and urine tests, only five students were found to have had alcohol in their bloodstream.

“Let me be very clear: teenage drinking is a serious problem, and it did in fact occur at our school on Friday night,”  Treston wrote. “Our process of preventing backpacks, bottles and cans from entering the stadium broke down. In addition, some number of students arrived intoxicated. We owe it to the community to identify such students, and to protect them and the community. But, we also need to do it in a way that protects the rights and dignity of the student body. When the accused-but-innocent outnumber the guilty 16 to one, we probably did it wrong.”

What this policy does is condition students to think that it’s okay to violate the rights of the innocent in order to catch a few people who may be breaking the rules—a dangerous path—and one the U.S. has been traveling down for far too long.

  1. That’s like Christmasy.

  2. The answer is to leave empty beer bottles and cans all over the campus.

      No doubt ,back in the day that is exactly what would have happened.
      Sadly ,kids don’t seem to have the critical thinking skills these days. They’re simply taught to obey government authority .

  3. Have these morons ever thought how much simpler a breath test would be.
    these people are to stupid or power hungry to run a school.

    • Yeah, who is paying for all those hospital tests–they are not cheap.

      Screw the testing! I would absolutely refuse and when they threatened suspension, I would tell them; “You didn’t really think I would allow my child to return to this den of vipers did you?” Of course that supposes I would allow my child within a 1000 feet of a public school to begin with.

  4. Why didn’t the parents refuse en masse? Have we become a nation of complacent cowards?

  5. The thoughts and suggestions of protecting our human rights should be planted by their parents at home which in my opinion is not be done or enforced enough. I hope to teach my children to protect their rights at all times and not allow others (govt) to take it from them. All of us, we got to stand up and fight for our rights!

    • the whole point of universal education
      and watch out, your children are not yours, they will be taken away while you are jailed for subversive activity
      is how FFed up our world is now!

  6. If there are no consequences for the offiicals this will continue. Also who paid for all these invasive procedures?

  7. Having the kid expelled from the madrasa would be the best thing that could ever happen to him…

  8. It is always “For the children or For the children’s safety”

  9. A police state system has infiltrated all of American society. The US has lost all semblance of a democracy ruled by law. The vaunted Constitution is more honoured in the breach than in the observance thereof.

    there IS a time for violent resistance. In fact, that is the only way things are going to change. Just ask this country’s founders.

  11. Group punishments are insane. They’re punishing everyone for ‘not turning someone in’… but if they said students arrived drunk, then take them to the office, and don’t bother invading people’s veins.

  12. When we were 10 we used to steal cans of Bud from our parents and do beer can shooters out in the woods and even the NSA didn’t know our exact location. Who knows what nefarious plots we could have been hatching? Now they do a cavity search on the whole kindergarten just because one kid has a cavity. Wait a minute… that seems wrong…

  13. Loonies everywhere.

  14. Non-compliance, non-compliance, non-compliance. Live on your feet or die on your knee’s.
    If these school districts don’t have students they don’t get paid. Parents need the school system to baby sit their little tykes so they will never stand against the tyranny. We live in a country of spineless government controlled chatel…
