This isn’t saying that all high school students use steroids, however, steroids are present. Using steroids are illegal and random tests should be mandatory in high schools to find those athletes that use steroids. Steroids can be used for many reasons, but the main reason behind steroid use among high school athletes is to enhance their performance. Steroids contain testosterone, which encourage cell growth within the body. Although it appears that steroids are helping the body, they are actually killing it.
How many times have you turned on the news, only to hear another story about a high school sports star using drugs such as steroids? Drug tests would be a way to prevent the school from letting it get that far. It is another way to make sure the school has positive role models leading the student body. Second, the sports games are supposed to be honest with fair sportsmanship. Most children participating in the games are competing in a fair way.
After reading and reviewing the University of Phoenix Student Code of Conduct and the Student Code of Academic Integrity I was surprised. What surprised me the most was the whole process of if a student is considered in violation of either of the codes, it seems to be similar to a court hearing. The student is a suspect until proven guilty or not. The situation is investigated and processed similar to a criminal charge and determined by a group of people whether or not the student is guilty or not and if found wrongly accused but still charged, the student can appeal the case. The whole process surprised me because in other schools such as high school it is not so intense.
The purse’s main area contained cigarettes and rolling paper. This prompted a further search of the rest of the purse which turned up drugs, money and a list of students who owed money to this individual for drug sales. The court recognized the school as a unique environment that needed special protection to ensure that it properly functions. This decision has been the “go to” standard for public schools ever since. Today some question the validity of the diminished standard as new technology has emerged that the Supreme Court of 1985 could not have foreseen (Sprung, 2011).
Having an armed security guard or peace officers at our school alone will act as a deterrent towards violent criminals from thinking about going to the school and committing a shooting. “Armed security guards increase safety. That's exactly why politicians, celebrities, banks, airports, rock concerts; they all used armed security to keep people safe “(Malveaux). Having an armed security guard or a police officer at our school will act as a deterrent to help keep a criminal from showing up and commenting a shooting, the criminal will see the armed security and decided against it because they have resistant. Another great benefit to having an armed security or a police officer at every school is that they can respond immediately to anything going on that would require there attention.
Judge Blackmun, who had delivered a concurring opinion, had referred back to Brown v. board of Education stating that, “education is perhaps the most important function of government,” Blackmun believed that it is the government’s responsibility to protect students at a heightened level since they are compelling the students to go to school. He says, “The special need for an immediate response to [bad] behavior… justifies the Court in excepting school searches from the warrant and probable cause requirement.” Judge Blackmun’s idea is that school officials can perform a search without a warrant or probable cause. This is only as long as they have a substantial reason to believe a crime has been or will be committed. The Court lifted the warrant and probable cause requirements for schools as an act of protecting the students to maintain a suitable learning environment. Judge Powell also had a similar stance on the Court’s opinion saying, “when there are reasonable grounds for suspecting that search will turn up evidence that the student has violated or is violating either the law or the rules of the school, a search of the student’s person or belongings is justified.” Powell is saying that school officials are allowed to search students if they are under suspicion of violating school policy.
Free Hugs, Give Up Drugs! Do you have a favorite athlete, whether it be a family member or someone in the NFL? Have they ever gotten punished or kicked off the team for drug use, whether it be steroids or Marijuana? They get caught, most of the time, because they were tested. Athletes should get tested in schools and organizations for enhancement uses.
This just goes to show that there is drug-testing going on all over the United States in many different ways. In some cases drug testing is very effective, but overall drug testing is not very accurate or beneficial in the workplace. Unless someone showed up for work under the influence of drugs or alcohol and the employer wants proof that this person is in fact using drugs or alcohol then drug testing in the workplace is meaningless. After conducting research on the subject of random drug testing in the workplace we have concluded that random drug testing does not work. Not to say that it does not have an impact or that it is ineffective to companies or businesses, but this does not work because the tests are not always one hundred percent accurate.
The second reason I think armed guards are good to have in school is because they supply shakedowns. They are supposed to supply shakedowns before you even get on the campus of the school to search for contraband. This second article I looked at is from dealing with in Institution and how they shack down people before they walk into the building. Harlow, Lisa states “Searching offenders, employees and property is a duty that Green takes very seriously. Contraband, such as drugs, weapons
Actions such as these led to the Exclusionary Rules creation by the United States Supreme Court. Rationale and Purpose The Exclusionary Rule was designed to exclude evidence that was obtained in violation of defendants Fourth Amendment rights (The Free Dictionary, 2012). The primary purpose of this rule was to deter the police from misconduct that violate defendants’ rights (The Free Dictionary, 2012). If the police conduct a search that is unreasonable then any evidence that is obtained in the search will be excluded from any criminal trial (The Free Dictionary, 2012). The rationale for the rule comes from the constitutional concept of limited governmental authority (Hall, 1992).
