  1. Daily Goals • Content: • Understand the meaning of the 4th Amendment • Understand when 4th Amendment applies • Literacy: • Understand concepts: • Warrant • Search and Seizure • Probably Cause • Reasonable Suspicion • Expectation of Privacy • Social: • Students will deliberate the case California v. Greenwood as the Supreme Court. • Students will write opinions based on discussion

  2. California v. Greenwood FindingMajority Opinion • Question: Does a warrantless search of someone’s trash can constitute an unreasonable search and seizure? • It is a reasonable search and seizure. • Why? The public does not reasonably expect their garbage to be private: • Trash is accessible to animals, children, scavengers, and snoops. So why not police? • The public expects the trash to be handled by a third party (garbage man). • It’s out on the curb, which is a public place away from the private home.

  3. California v. Greenwood FindingDissenting Opinion • Question: Does a warrantless search of someone’s trash can constitute an unreasonable search and seizure? • Yes it does. People throw away very personal things. The public finds it uncivilized to sift someone’s trash to find out stuff about them. Go get a warrant if you want to search! • Containers are sealed and trash bags are opaque. The reason is people expect privacy. • People are protected from warrantless searches and seizures in their “personal effects.” Even if they are being transported to the landfill. • Riffling through someone’s bedroom can reveal intimate details about hygiene and sexual practices. • Riffling through someone’s desk draws can disclose private financial information, private thoughts, and other secrets. How is trash different?

  4. Discussion Questions • What language of the Constitution and the amendments, other law, or previous cases was relied upon in the Court’s decision? • What were the key principles involved? • What was the significance of the court’s decision? • Did the decision change the meaning of the Constitution? • Can you predict problems arising out of the court’s decision? • If you agreed with the Court’s decision, did you use the same reasoning? • If you disagreed with the Court’s decision, did you agree with the dissent’s reasoning? • What, if anything, should happen next?
