It sounds like they have been fairly intrusive in their methods and have asked students to participate in interviews/questioning. Hopefully Harbin families have been providing good guidance to their children. I would say parents of students in that building have the most need for information right now.
One message should be clear right now, which is that the Feds ain't playing. For some of these folks, a couple of days in Central Lockup wouldn't be a bad thing.
I am happy that everyone is taking drugs on campus seriously , but I really hope we don't hear anymore reports of students handcuffed and removed, at least not in view of other students. I have to imagine that feeling like you're on an episode of The Wire is not helping freshmen get comfortable on campus. ... Unless Bubbs is around selling t-shirts. That actually would make people quite comfortable.
As for the students being questioned, sure almost all of them are probably 18, but I would bet that the vast majority have never dealt with this sort of situation. I hope that their legal rights are being respected. It is one thing to root out the dealers in the building. It would be quite another if kids start accidentally fessing up to things that any lawyer worth his salt would tell them they have a right to keep quiet. (I'm not saying this is happening, but just another of the many concerns.)
What's the problem with handcuffing and removing people in view of students? Hurting their itty-bitty feelings?
If cops would do this to someone who wasn't in college, do it to Georgetown students. Being in college doesn't get you a "get out of perp walk free" card.
