AT students feeling insecure This is in the status quo – Students feel insecure under reasonable suspicion. We show you in our case that PC increases trust in students because we increase the perception of increased rights. Probable cause is inherently more aligned with constitutional protections. Students who feel like they’re being treated wrongly in the status quo won’t feel like this anymore because they will feel like schools are trying to protect their rights.

A2: Legal complexity TURN this argument because teachers would be more comfortable searching under probable cause because it is a standard that is easier to understand Husna Haq , 5-21- 2013 , "'Stop and frisk': 7 questions about New York's controversial policing tactic," accessed 9-12-2016 - 7-questions-about-New-York-s-controversial-policing-tactic/Is-it-legal, But a 1968 US Supreme Court decision, Terry v. Ohio , lowered that benchmark by allowing law enforcement to stop and search people in a public place if the officer “reasonably suspects” that someone is about to commit a crime, and can "articulate" a valid reason for the stop and frisk. Reasonable suspicion alone is not grounds for arrest, as probable cause is, but incriminating evidence found during a stop and frisk may be grounds for arrest. The problem is that “reasonable suspicion” is more vague than “probable cause,” leading some opponents to argue that law enforcement officers use a person's race to determine reasonable suspicion, and therefore, perform stop and frisks. This is true for 2 reasons: 1. We have been trying to define probable cause for more than 2 centuries through court cases, but reasonable suspicion is a term that was just recently coined by TLO. 2. Probable cause is less subjective – reasonable suspicion allows for bias, while probable cause is more legally defined. Reasonable suspicion is a flimsier standard - while it is hard to figure out if something qualifies as evidence, it is harder to find out if something qualifies as “reasonable” – It is plain sight versus guesswork.

A2: Schools prefer SROs because more experience 1. It’s incredibly unlikely that schools would increase these security measures because they are shifting away from them in the status quo. T he National Council of Juvenile and Family Court writes in ’15 that any policy to put more armed personnel in schools would significantly depart from the current, national trend. Too many schools are employing policies and practices of extreme discipline that push young people out of school and into the juvenile and criminal justice system. The influx of police in schools has been one of the main contributors to the growing number of children funneled into this pipeline. Research shows that aggressive security measures produce alienation and mistrust among students which, in turn, can disrupt the learning environment. [5] Such restrictive environments may actually lead to violence, thus jeopardizing, instead of promoting, school safety.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
