Except that the Supreme Court has found that RANDOM drug testing violates the Fourth Amendment to the Constitution.<quoted text>ANYONE that gets caught deserves what they get.
IF a welfare recipient or cop, mayor or representative gets busted, they are busted.
AND IF the working stiff gets tested for a job, there's NO good reason that welfare recipients should get tested too.
"The Court noted that while the Fourth Amendment generally prohibits officials from conducting search and seizures without individualized suspicion, there does exist a "closely guarded" category of permissible suspicionless searches and seizures.
However, the Court held that the statute's drug-testing requirement did not fit within this category.
The Court emphasized that the proffered special need for drug testing must be substantial--important enough to override the individual's acknowledged privacy interest, sufficiently vital to suppress the Fourth Amendment's normal requirement of individualized suspicion."
