Have you been selling marijuana to other students?
He didn't have a warrant. He violated my fourth amendment rights!
I was just trying to do my job.
Due to the need for swift justice in schools, Mr. Choplick was within his rights to search based on a reasonable suspicion..
The fourth amendment should not be abridged like this.
And so the precedent was set. For the purposes of school justice, a "reasonable suspicion" is enough to justify a search. It has since been expanded somewhat and applied in different scenarios, but the sentiment remains. Schools need a lower standard of proof to spark an investigation.
So just don't so or sell drugs and you'll be fine
