New Jersey V. T.L.O.

Storyboard Text

  • That morning...
  • Someone finally noticed.
  • She was smoking in there, I'm telling you
  • Thank you. I'll look into it.
  • How dare you search my purse?!
  • Weed
  • 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..
  • Vote: 6-3
  • 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
