Wells Student Alyssa Drescher Victim Of Illegal Search & Seizure By United South Central Personnel, Wells & Mapleton Police? Trained Drug Dog Alerts On Perfume & Lotion? Mapleton Chief Ben Honsey Too Busy Reading Lion News For 6 Hours, 41 Minutes & 6 Seconds To Fulfill Nemmers' Data Request?

You can always tell when there is a cover-up when the stonewall starts hitting you in face, can't you? You can, can't you?

Alyssa Drescher, 17, is facing a 12-month expulsion after authorities found the knife during a random drug search April 15. A drug-sniffing dog was reportedly alerted to her locker — and ultimately her purse — from her lotion and her perfume inside. Though police did not find drugs, they found the three-inch knife in her purse. Residents come out to support USC student By Sarah Stultz Albert Lea Tribune. Monday, April 21, 2014.

On Friday, April 25, 2014 I submitted data requests to United South Central Superintendent Jerry Jensen, Wells Police Chief Jim Ratelle and Faribault County Sheriff Michael S. Gormley, didn't I? I did, didn't I? I did, didn't I?

The police K-9 was alerted to her locker initially because of lotions and perfumes inside. USC school board expels student for rest of school year By Sarah Stultz Albert Lea Tribune. Thursday, April 24, 2014.

And even though I sent my request to Sheriff Gormley, he was the only one to respond on Friday, April 25, 2014, wasn't he? He was, wasn't he?

Much of the hearing involved laying out the facts of the case. School liaison officer and former Mapletons Police Chief Rick Herman testified about the April 15 drug search at the high school, a trained police dog sniffing at lockers while students were kept in classrooms. About eight lockers attracted the dog’s interest, including Drescher’s. There were no drugs inside her locker (or any of the others searched), but Herman found a camouflage pocket knife at the bottom of a pocket in her purse. “He turned around and looked at me and said, ‘Mrs. Schlaak, we have an issue,’” Principal Kelly Schlaak testified.

The Sheriff actually emailed me at about 10:00pm on Friday night, didn't he? He did, didn't he?

And even though Superintendent Jensen was doing interviews with KAAL-TV on Friday, April 25, 2014, he did answer my emails, did he? He didn't, did he?

On Friday, Superintendent Dr. Jerry Jensen said he supports the board's decision and considers the matter closed.   ABC 6 also called all of the school board members, and those who called back said data privacy prevents them from talking about the hearing publicly.

Of course, the lapdog media wasn't questioning the validity of K-9 search that resulted in no drugs, right? No wonder Superintendent Jensen want to speak with the lapdog media, instead of me, huh?

More to come . . .
