A California couple unhappy with the PTA president at their son's elementary school took an unusual approach to rectify their problem, police say. Kent and Jill Easter, both 38 and attorneys, were arrested Tuesday in Irvine after being accused of planting drugs in the car of Plaza Vista School PTA president Kelli Peters because they believed she was not properly supervising their son, the Los Angeles Times reported.
Irvine police said Kent Easter drove to Peters' home in February and planted a bag of marijuana, along with a pipe and prescription pills in the backseat of her unlocked car. He then called police under a false name a little while later and said that the woman had been driving erratically near their son's school and claimed to see her put the drugs in the car's backseat.
Police arrived at the school and saw the drugs in plain view inside the car, and then contacted Peters, who was inside. After consenting to a search of her car, she said the drugs weren't hers and denied knowing where they came from. After detaining her for two hours, police determined she was in a classroom at the time the call was made to police. Peters then consented to a search of her home. Investigators saw nothing in the home to support drug use or possession, so they began investigating whether the drugs had been planted. After further investigation, police said, they determined that Easter made the call from a hotel near where he worked and was recorded on the hotel video surveillance system.

Bear in mind, that when you are innocent there is not much you can do but try to prove your innocence. In this case, lucky for the teacher, she was evidently totally innocent in not having any stash at home. In effect, she was able more or less prove her innocence by not being a user. Was her privacy violated by allowing a search to prove her innocence? I don't think so, and I guess she didn't either. So what is your complaint?
"I did see the permitless chap being ushered down the hill. The Tibetan rope fixers were sent up to get him. I saw them bringing him down the ropes from the North Col to [advanced base camp]. It was disgraceful. They literally kicked him down the ropes. It was a disgusting example of a pack of bullies egging each other on and literally beating him down the hill. It was absolutely unnecessary as he was offering no resistance and was scared out of his mind. The Tibetans should, and could, have just escorted him down the hill and let the authorities deal with him."
