Although having the freedom to put any belonging in lockers, it would be an advantage to have locker searches. If there was an adolescent that was putting certain possessions of theirs that were horrific to be on a school campus then there would be nothing you could do unless they had locker searchers. If there were a fellow student that had a firearm in their locker, would it be essential that administrators search the lockers in order to diffuse a dangerous encounter that takes the lives of students?
Rationale: This is a very important part of the case brief. You must explain the gist of the court ruling, (i.e., why the court arrived at its holding). The court ruled that even though Ronnie’s punishment was prolonged and uninterrupted and may also be unconstitutional claim they felt that it was not considered to be too harsh and it was not outrageous.
In the Supreme Court relied on the rule of "good faith" holding that the evidence obtained by the officers conducting inquiries based on a "good faith" court order that is subsequently found to be deficient is also admissible. The evidence would also be unusable if the officer prepared a judicial order under a sworn statement in a dishonest or negligent manner, if the magistrate who granted it abandons his neutrality, or if the court order lacks sufficient specificity. The Leon case only applies to search warrants. It is not clear whether the "good faith" exception applies to court orders about inquiries in other contexts. The 8 of January of 1974 , the Supreme Court ruled that the decisions of a grand jury can be based on alleged illegal evidence obtained in the cross-examination of a witness, because to argue otherwise would interfere with the independence of the grand jury, and the time to request the illegality of a search is after the defendant is
Some people don’t think that we should have guns and some do. The main problem that people think that teachers shouldn’t have guns is the fact they would be promoting violence to the kids and they also think that some kids might be able to steal the guns from the teacher's desk and start shooting. But there is still the group who thinks having guns in school is a good idea. They think it is a good idea because if teachers have guns they can help defend the children by shooting back at the attacker. They can also make the argument saying that it makes parents feel safer to send their child to school knowing that they are safe.
Issuing warrants take away time and privilege for police. Needing a warrant may unable police to some investigations as well. The Fourth Amendment was created for safety and privacy reasons, but has deterred the efficacy of law-enforcement; needing a search warrant makes gathering evidence harder, police investigations have been delayed, and the Exclusionary Rule causes some investigations to be inadmissible. Needing a search warrant made collecting evidence much harder for the government and police.
(Mears) In my opinion, Fredrick had the right to freely express his feelings towards drugs. The term “Bong Hits 4 Jesus” implies in slang, “to inhale smoke from a bong for Jesus. ”(Bong-Hit) It simply means that Jesus’s stance towards smoking marijuana would not be sinful, since it is a natural plant, therefore it should be legalized.(Carter)
Arizona case like certain colonial laws and the Fifth and Sixth Amendment, many ignored the precedent and subjected individuals to torture and other inhumane interrogation tactics to acquire confessions from accused individuals. The Miranda v. Arizona case specified that the accused must be read their rights to prevent self-incrimination to prevent false confessions that stemmed from coercion, which had not been explicitly stated in the Fifth and Sixth Amendments. Therefore, the Miranda v. Arizona case served to fully complete the legal promise of self-incrimination that had already been guaranteed by the Fifth Amendment and Sixth Amendments in the Bill of Rights and previous
The reason behind this is not simply because of the side effects involved in taking brain-boosting drugs but because they give an ‘unfair’ advantage in an educational environment. Lamkin refutes, “But the instinct to view the problem as a form of unfair competition is itself a manifestation of the debased education culture that has rendered these drugs so attractive to students” (641). “ Motlow State Community College doesn’t classify the use of prescription drugs as ‘cheating’, however, in the General Regulations on Student Conduct and Disciplinary Sanctions in Student Affairs, “The unlawful use, possession, distribution, sale or manufacture of any drug or controlled substance…” this includes but is not “limited to, any stimulant, depressant, narcotic, or hallucinogenic drug or substances or marijuana), being under the influence of any drug or controlled substance, or the misuse of legally prescribed or “over the counter” drugs is prohibited”(Motlow State Community College, k). But how often do students follow honor codes? Of course sanctions will be given if the code of conduct is broken but for example, Motlow State Community College is a Tobacco-Free campus and to what extent is this upheld?
My school would greatly benefit from the application of an honor code as long as such a code is approved by the student body. Such an honor code would bring about students to reconsider their actions before cheating on a test. This is because an honor code has the ability to create a culture among students which discourages cheating. Also, including harsh punishments within the honor code would dishearten students from cheating out of fear of potential consequences. Schools which have not benefited from honor codes are very different from Classical, and therefore do not prove that an honor code would be ineffective at Classical.
Many students that know uniforms will be beneficially, but don’t agree with school uniforms will continue to disagree with implementing them. It can be easily agreed that school uniforms may take away their self-expression in school, but what matters more in school is the way of learning. It can also be agreed that many students do not accept the self-expression of their classmates and make fun of them. Students, parents, and school administration should be able to recognize the benefits that school uniforms come with.
The exclusionary rule was first established in the case of Weeks v. United States in 1914. During the trial, the Supreme Court ruled that the evidence obtained by the law enforcement officer was in violation of the Fourth Amendment and will be inadmissible in federal courts. This rule later became effective in the state courts in 1961 due to the unlawful search of Mrs. Mapp’s house in the case of Mapp v. Ohio. As a result of this case, Mrs. Mapp was convicted for possession of obscene materials but later argued that the law enforcement officer could not use the materials in the trial because they were obtained without a warrant. Although the exclusionary rule is not an independent constitutional right, it serves many purposes such as aiding in the deterrence of police misconduct and providing solutions to defendants whose
The case starts off by Officer Gung Ho being on foot patrol during the day shift. He receives a call from dispatch about possible drug sales occurring on Main Street. Officer Ho sees three individuals standing on the corner. Officer Ho approaches them and asks what they are doing. Dan, one of the individuals, and another begin to walk away leaving the third person, Junkie Jane.
1. Write a brief summary (one paragraph each of 3-5 sentences) of the New Jersey v. T.L.O. and Vernonia v. Acton cases. In the New Jersey v. T.L.O. the Supreme Court ruled in favor of the school district, after they found a 14 year old girl smoking in the bathroom. And got her consent to search her bag.

Spring Branch I.S.D. v. Stamos Supreme Court of Texas, 1985 695.S.W.2d 556 [27 Educ. L. Rep. 640] This case examined the constitutionality of the Texas Education Code 21.920 (b) “No Pass, No Play” rule: A student, other than a mentally retarded student, enrolled in a school district in this state shall be suspended from participation in any extracurricular activity sponsored or sanctioned by the school district during the grade reporting period after a grade reporting period in which the student received a grade lower than the equivalent of 70 on a scale of 100 in any academic class. The campus principal may remove this suspension if the class is an identified honors or advanced class. A student may not be suspended under this subsection
The Exclusionary Rule: Enforcing the Fourth Amendment This section begins by explaining that in 1914, the court reexamined their previous ruling as to whether or not one could submit evidence to a court that had been illegally seized (Ingram, 2009). One specific case that the textbook references in relation to this is the case of Weeks v. the United States. In this particular case, the police had seized evidence that they had taken from the defendant’s residence without a proper search warrant. This evidence was then used against the defendant in court and he was convicted as a result.
