The Department of Justice threatened legal action against the city of Meridian, Mississippi, claiming the municipality violated due process rights of juveniles with their policy of arresting all suspended students, regardless of the type of offense. Students were arrested for minor infractions like dress code violations, flatulence, profanity and disrespect, according to the DOJ's report. (Photo: Commercial Appeal /Landov)
