Slippery slope? – Constitutional Law Badge

I think the police should be able to have the dogs do a drug test in the hallways of the school just because the school is public property and its owned by the government. The police shouldn’t be able to just go to a random persons house with a dog and if the person has drugs they shouldn’t get into trouble. The police needs to ask the owner and not just suspect that they have drugs. The police should have looked into the case more then they did and not just by what people say. They need to investigate it and not just barge in like they did. If people were going to make or have drugs where it is legal they need to have a warrant. We think the guy shouldn’t be getting into that much trouble because they barged in without asking anyone. The police should at least put the guy under house arrest and keep the place under surveillance.

Injury or Not?

The Constitution requires Abigail Fisher to show that she was injured by the person she is suing. I believe that by denying Fisher’s application, the University of  Texas does sufficiently constitute as injury to Fisher. In addition, Fisher hurt her chances of being considered to be injured by enrolling at LSU and pursuing her undergraduate degree. Had she not been able to pursue her degree, she would have had a stronger case for injury inflicted by the University of Texas.
