Your Opinion: ACLU lawsuit called wasteful, petty

Dear Editor:

The ACLU is going to be the ruination of this country.

Linn State is not violating anyone’s rights by requiring drug tests. All students that attend and the faculty have a right to a safe and drug-free school. Students who use drugs or are paranoid have a right to choose another school.

The ACLU survives because they waste our tax dollars filing stupid petty suits. If a student isn’t doing drugs they have nothing to fear from a drug test.

The ACLU should actually try doing something for the good of the country rather than trying to milk the system dry.
