College is a time of experimentation for young adults, but some college students go too far with what they are willing to experiment with. Some students turn to experimentation with alcohol or drugs for stress release or increased attention.
It's normal for parents to be worried as their high school graduates prepare to go to college. There are many ways for a college student to get in trouble on a campus, which is why it's important to be aware of the common issues and potential consequences.
The Fourth Amendment gives every U.S. citizen the right to privacy. The government can only invade your home, search your person - or monitor your emails or Internet activity - in certain circumstances. Unless stringent requirements are met, any unwarranted invasion of privacy by police departments or federal agents is unconstitutional and illegal.
This country is known for protecting the rights of its people. One of those rights is protection from unreasonable searches and seizures. One judge recently ruled that a Baltimore arrest was unlawful, putting the case involving weapons charges in jeopardy.
Police often have a difficult job. For example, they are tasked with investigating suspicious deaths. As they do so, they often face pressure from the victim's family and the general public to provide answers, and even those officers with the best of intentions can fall victim to this pressure. Unfortunately, a rush to judgment can often have significant implications on a person's life. Two men in Maryland who now face criminal charges after the murder of a suspected drug dealer will likely want to ensure that their rights are upheld throughout the criminal process.
