Personal Searches in school, Lockers, backpacks, etc.
Debate Rounds (3)
First off, I'm going to start by saying I come from a school with a bunch of kids who smoke weed and think it's cool to talk about it out loud. I think that personal searches are necessary if a teacher or staff member is under suspicion that someone has dangerous weapons or illegal drugs with them. If teachers were unable to do personal searches, things like that would go unnoticed therefore putting the lives of students in danger. What if someone were to bring a knife or gun to school and the teachers were suspicious that that person could possibly be harmful in any way, but they couldn't search through his stuff? Then there is definitely going to be a problem.
The right of the people to be secure in their personals, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.
At the school I attend people have things in their backpacks that they shouldn't have but, I think that the school should find another way to hsndle these types of situations.
