Florida Schools Considers ‘Trash-Cams’ to See What Food Kids Are Throwing Away

Posted by on Oct 03, 2012 at 7:57 am

Kids around the nation are in open rebellion about the food being forced on them by this imperious, arrogant woman, so what are school administrators to do? Why, spy on the kids to see who’s not eating their kale and okra.

Welcome to the police  state, kiddies.

Lake County School Board officials are considering attaching cameras to school cafeteria trash cans to study what students are tossing after officials found that most of the vegetables on the school menu end up in the trash can.

New federal laws require students to take a healthy produce at lunchtime, but last year in Lake County, students tossed $75,000 worth of produce in the garbage.

“It’s a big issue, and it’s very hard to get our hands around it,” said School Board member Todd Howard, who suggested “trash-cams.” “They have to take (the vegetable), and then it ends up in the trash can, and that’s a waste of taxpayer money.  It’s also not giving students the nutrition that they need.”

They have to take the vegetables. Aren’t these the same people who shove “choice” down our throats at every opportunity?

But hey, don’t concern yourselves with the rights of these beleaguered, famished young ones, they’re privacy will be respected (wink, wink).

No decisions have been made on the cameras, but school leaders say they wouldn’t capture students faces, just what they’re throwing away.

Oh, OK, that makes me feel better now. It’s not like schools administrators would ever lie to the public or anything.

    Test scores suck and payrolls and pension costs are exploding. And these assholes somehow have time to set up trash can cameras and review the resulting footage? Think about that nex time they whine about how overworked and undersupported they are.

    It’s absolutely preposterous to say that the cameras will not capture student’s faces. It’s a lie so obvious it would not convince of six year old.

    I suppose the next step is forced feeding and force starvation, depending upon how you tip the scales.
