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,
According to Akash Bagaria, “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 issue arises, the student’s parents could manage it.” However, it is still important that school officials and police officers need to check people’s phones because their job is to keep people safe. According to California resident Chris Eddy, “The police now have better means to find out if you’re guilty.” Posting good things online can keep you out of
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.
Even if it means protecting the community, officials shouldn’t be able to go through personal devices. If a student posts an inappropriate picture on social media parents can deal with it not teachers. “Monitoring students’ online activity is an invasion of privacy and a violation of freedom of speech“, says Akasha Bagaria. If a student did something on social media that didn’t involve school, teachers shouldn’t be allowed to discipline the student because their role is to teach, not monitor kids outside the classroom. Also, if someone gets arrested, police shouldn’t be allowed to go through his/her phone. “The two judges who voted against the verdict argued that cell phone searches are an invasion of privacy. They noted that smartphones can contain a wide variety of information about a person”, said the article Phone Patrol, section “Should the Police Be Allowed to Dig Through People’s Cell Phones?” If a police officer goes through someone's phone, there could be embarrassing things that he doesn’t him
Phones today are becoming more accessible to everyone, especially teens. As phones become more popular, they are introducing phones with much more advanced technology. People today can use their phones for way more than just calling and texting one other. Now people use phones to not only connect with others through social media, but to play games, search the web, and take pictures. Although phones have many valuable uses and students enjoy connecting with each other through social media, phones should not be allowed in school.
What does taking a student's phone really do? do they really cause a big distraction in class? Becky Dieffenbach’s opinion, bringing their own devices “just becomes a source of distraction for some students, because no matter how many times you repeat the rule that they can only be on technology when the teacher says it’s ok, they choose to ignore the rule and then disciplinary actions have to be enforced.” Some schools ban the use of cell phones because it’s a distraction in class, and also used for cheating on test and quizzes.
Over the past decade, we have integrated technology into many parts of out lives. We use our cell phones for everything from finding directions, to taking pictures of moments you do not want to forget. Everywhere you go, you cell phone goes with you, if you forget it at home, somehow we feel naked without it. Cell phones have become so powerful and useful for so many things other than just making phone calls; I do not even know why we still call them phones. With that, we have the right to feel secure and free from unwarranted searches though our cell phones and electronic devices.
The bell rings for the students’ next class. They walk outside the classroom and a dog and a police officer are patrolling the school, inspecting lockers, and now everyone is scared, and forgets about school, but not the cop. This is not the way schools should be. Schools should only have drug searches under certain circumstances, not out of nowhere. Students’ belongings should only be searched under certain circumstances because of students’ rights, the 4th amendment, and students’ behavior.
When in emergencies kids usually turn to their electronics to contact others for help. Students want to have reassurance and know that if any inconvenience occur they can reach their parents or others as soon as possible. Most parents and children like to stay in touch with one another at all times. Especially if there's a change of plans after school or if there's any accidents that appeared and need to be evacuated immediately. Aside from, rivals say that students are most likely to lose their cell phones. In the meantime, students would be responsible and put it in a safe place at the appropriate time. For these reasons, cell phones should be tolerated on school property in cases of
The fourth amendment of the United States talks about the rights of people and how they can secure their personal items unless they need to be searches by the police. The only time the police or someone in the federal investigation business can search your house is if they have a search warrant and a good cause to search your house. The reason they would need a good reason is because they have to go to the court to get one, so if they say that they need a search warrant because someone stole a candy bar from the store they probably won't get it. But everything's the same with your phone. Unless it is on school grounds.
Officials shouldn’t look through your phone , because it’s a violation of privacy. For example, when a teachers look through students phones it makes students lose trust in their teacher.In the article Freedom Comes First, it claims that “There should be a level of trust between a teacher and a student.”This shows students to trust teachers and the things they say, or do.In addition, officials have no rights to look at any other device not owned by them or their company. Like in the article Freedom Comes First, it states
In conclusion, we should allow officials to use information found on private devices in order to protect the community and potentially help in searches. Making a law to allow officials to use information found on private devices could have a positive impact on our communities. Giving officials these kinds of permission could also have good impacts on the ways people act on the
Cell phones should not be allowed in school. There are many reasons why cell phones and cell phone use are a detriment to learning. These reasons include the following: cell phones can negatively affect social well-being, they can interfere with academics, and they can enable harassment and cyber-bullying inside and outside of school. As a result, schools should not allow cell phone use on their campuses.
Many students have used their cell phones to share answers to tests and quizzes, and to report inaccurate and offensive information about other students and their school. Cell phones can be distractions in the school environment, evading classroom time and reducing student’s academic success.
