Standard For Reasonable Search Hits New Low With Clarence Thomas

mother davisMother Davis searches her medicine cabinet after considering,

The Fourth Amendment in the Bill of Rights sets a subjective standard for protection against government searches. It only defends us against “unreasonable search and seizure”. Unfortunately, there are some people in power whose subjective lens has been knocked off balance.

Among those is Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas. He was the sole dissenting voice in a ruling yesterday concerning a school administration’s strip search of 13 year-old girl.

Thomas’s position was that the strip search should be considered reasonable. The search was for ibuprofen.

Wondering if perhaps she has hidden her aspirin under her clothes,
Mother Davis
