I knew I shouldn't have eaten that breakfast burrito before school...
HEY YOU! EMO KID!
Yeah you, bucko! You can't come to school dressed like that! It's a distraction! You better change into more suitible clothing or else!
I should be allowed to express myself! I am NOT going to obey you!
It was just another average day at Solarsano Middle School UNTIL...
AHH! WHAT THE ACTUAL @#%&!!! THIS IS SO CRUEL!
I warned you kid! This is your consequence for not respecting my rules!
...grumpy, old Mr. Peterson came along.
Please sir, don't! I didn't give you permission to search my backpack!
Since it's obvious you're a very naughty student, I will be checking your backpack to make sure you aren't carrying any drugs.
Mr. Peterson has an issue with the way Zack is dressed. He warns Zack that he needs to change into different clothes or else there would be consequences. If the middle school had the Bill of Rights, this would violate Zack's 1st Amendment right to freedom of expression.
Well it seems as if your back pack was clean. Make sure you never disobey a teacher again. Have a great day!
Mr. Peterson decides to punish Zack because he would not listen to his orders. Zack feels that Mr. Peterson has punished him way too harshly and that his punishment was very odd for a school setting. If the Bill of Rights existed within the middle school, Mr. Peterson would be violating the 8th Amendment that protects citizens from cruel and unusual punishments.
Mr. Peterson suspects that Zack may be in possession of drugs, so he checks his backpack to find out. Zack does not give Mr. Peterson permission to do so, and there is no solid evidence to support this search. If this situation occurred with the Bill of rights in force, Mr. Peterson would be violating Zack's 4th Amendment right that protects him from unreasonable searches and seizures.
The End As shown by the comic, middle school would be a VERY caotic place without the Bill of Rights. It's an imprtant part of our everyday lives and is essential for fairness EVERYWHERE. (not just
