School Spies Students Through Their Laptop Cameras

School Spies Students Through Their Laptop Cameras

High School students have sued the Lower Merion School District in Philadelphia for spying on them using their laptops’ built-in cameras. School administrator used software to activate the webcams and record students’ activities at home. Way to go, KGB-wannabe assclowns.

The situation was discovered by the Robbins, when their kid was disciplined for “improper behaviour in his home”. How could that be possible? The Vice Principal showed a photo as the evidence. A photo taken with the school-provided laptop webcam.

If the lawsuit accusations are true, I hope they ground these slimy people forever. [Lawsuit via BoingBoing]
