Steroid Tests Ignore the 4th Amendment - New York Times

Steroid Tests Ignore the 4th Amendment - New York Times | United States Constitutional Amendments | Scoop.it

Congress might be too busy to pause in its rush to rid the country of steroids, but perhaps its members should take a remedial course in the U.S. Constitution.

 

i dont agree with this because it goes against the 4th amendment even though they did it for the sake of the sport, they dont deserve to go through peoples things.

This article talks about how random steroid testing violates the 4th amendment. Unless there is a probable cause, government officials are not allowed to do a drug test. It is within states' and the sports teams rules on whether or not to do random drug testing. I think no matter what the rule is, random drug testing is against the 4th amendment and the constitution.  Without a probable cause I don't see any reason why someone should get a drug test.

I agree that random drug testing violates the 4th amendment. However, I feel like since it is because of sports they should be allowed to do random drug testing because otherwise you wouldn't know if players are using illegal drugs to enhance their performance.

This article is bringing the government and baseball together. The government wants to get rid of steroids in America all together and they believe baseball are not giving harsh enough punishments. They want first time offenders to have a 2 year suspension and 2nd time offenders a lifetime suspension.

Brief Details Jury Nullification Case Against Julian Heicklen

Brief Details Jury Nullification Case Against Julian Heicklen | United States Constitutional Amendments | Scoop.it

Federal prosecutors say advocacy by Julian P. Heicklen, a retired professor, is criminal and not protected by the Constitution.

 

I agree that Julian Heicklen was right about this because he had freedom of speech and they shouldnt have arrested him for voicing his opinion.

I believe that the government have access can be good but it can also be very bad. It can cause someone who is maybe innocent but do one wrong thing to be accused of a terrorist or something ridiculous. The man that had the phone tapped was doing illegal things and by tapping a public phone I don't think that there should be anything wrong with that.
