School and police officials should not be able to check are cell phones and social networking sites because that is none of their business. For example, at a school, if a fight breaks out, and a student has recorded it and posted it, the principal should not be able to take action and taking his phone. Monitoring students’ online activity is an invasion of privacy and a violation of freedom of speech. I think that… teachers and principals should not be able to take the kids phones. In addition, If the kid was at school and he was on it when class was going on and he wasn’t supposed to be on it and the teacher asked for his phone and was going to check what he was on, the student should have the right to not give it to her because that is none of her business what he was on, but if he was on it when not supposed to then the teacher should just take until the end of class and give it back. If the device is not school-owned and is not being used on school campus, schools should not monitor a student’s online activity. If an
Should school officials and police officers be allowed to search through students phones? School officials and police officers should be allowed to search students phones. School officials and police officers need to be able to check students phones, so they can keep everyone safe.

Students have rights just like everyone else, even if they are in a school environment. It can be humiliating and dangerous to a student's well-being to have their property searched and violated. Some students are even willing to sue if they feel they were unjustly searched. Dear faculty of high schools across America I implore you to think before you decide to search through and violate a student's cell phone; I believe that this practice is harming students.
The police shouldn’t be allowed to search a cell phone of anyone they arrest without a warrant.
I just don’t like how it feels getting searched for things you’d never have in a million years. It’s not jail where the officers can look through your items whenever they want to, so how come it’s starting to feel like it. No matter what a student should be violated or have their privacy invaded. And this situation is not a good thing allot of people are getting tired of being searched for no intentional
In the case New Jersey v. T.L.O., the student’s purse was searched after the principal had reasonable suspicion that she had cigarettes in her purse since she was caught smoking in the bathroom. The court decision in this case concluded that teachers are acting as agents for the state and are therefore allowed to search if they have reasonable suspicion. Students do have the Fourth Amendment right as all people in America have. However, student’s expectation of privacy has to be balanced with the needs of the school to maintain the educational environment. Schools do not have to obtain a warrant to search, but must have reasonable suspicion in order to search a student’s person or property.
School officials in my opinion should not be able to search students anytime they want for weapons and drugs. Yea I know that having drugs and weapons are bad and they shouldn’t have them at school. But the student needs a little respect and a little rights. Like what if they have something really personal on them that they would want NO ONE to see and the school just decides they want to go through their stuff? You could also think about it like this, police and they whole searching houses whenever they want. Also what if someone planted something in your stuff, to get you in trouble.
Police being able to search your phone without is warrant is a violation of privacy and the fourth amendment. This is an ongoing issue that is currently in the Supreme Court and state courts, which have split opinions on the issue. The courts are having a lot of trouble grasping what to compare a cell phone to as far as searching it. A big case that they are comparing searching cell phones to is over 40 years old and it involves a police officer searching through a cigarette box and finding drugs. A judge in the 9th circuit against warrantless search debunked the cigarette box comparison by saying phones are more like a suitcase, except the suitcase contains everything that you have ever traveled with in your entire life,

Officials as public schools has the authority to search student’s property. These officials are representatives of the state and they do not need to obtain a warrant to search a student’s property.

Or I fit consider as an unreasonable search. In fact, according to the Fourth Amendment it is not allowed to search or seize without a warrant.
