Transcript: During New Jersey v T.L.O, the Supreme Court had ruled in the Fourth Amendments favor. The Fourth Amendment relates to school because unreasonable searches and seizures often occur. When the court was determining this case to be valid, this case wants the principle to know, that school officials do not stand in the place of parents. The Court has decided that before searching and seizing any pupils belongings, the school officials must meet a certain standard. The fourth amendment requires that a search should be conducted only after an official obtains a warrant . The court decided that neither the warrant or probable cause was needed to justify a student search . the only requirement is that the search should be reasonable. A reasonable search must meet two criteria : (1) the search is justified at its inception .(2) the application of the search is reasonably related to the conditions that contributed a rise to the initial justification of the search. The premises of the case was that the court implied some restrictions on the officials. Since the case was not willing to go far into giving the officials unlimited power. Introducing The Fourth Amendment The fourth amendment protects us from any unreasonable searches and seizures. The police can't check our houses, papers and someones persons (body) without a warrant.

HOMEWORK The Senate in 1954 had televised hearings to investigate a new McCarthy charge. He insisted that there were Communists in the U.S. Army. On national tv, he came across a bully instead of hero which showed McCarthy had gone to far. This made his popularity decline. The Senate in December 1954, passed a resolution to censure McCarthy for "conduct unbecoming a member" censure-officially condemn. The McCarthy Americans also worried that there were Communists in high government positions. Alger Hiss, a State Department official, was imprisoned for perjury. Hiss said that he was not apart of a Soviet spy ring. Evidence later suggested that Hiss and several other officials were passing secrets to the Soviet Union. President Truman ordered investigations of government workers to determine if they were loyal. Thousands of government employees were questioned. Many were not disloyal. Perjury- lying under oath. Korea Divided Truman wanted to unite Korea and so they won United Nations approval for MacArthur to cross into North Korea Landing at Inchon Then the United Nations pushed China back into North Korea Armistice (continued) Some people still remained Communists. Between 1946 and 1950, many people in the U.S. , Canada, and Britain were arrested as Soviet spies. In the U.S. Ethel and Julues Rosenburg were sentenced to death for passing atomic secrets to the Soviets. Both were executed. General MacArthur felt that to win the war, United nations had to attack China. The Korean War changed nothing. Korea remained divided, but the United Nations forces did push back North Korean Forces. The United States and it allies showed that they were ready to fight to prevent communist expansion. Invasion During the deadlock, there was a disagreement betweeen General MacArthur and President Truman. Truman thought that the attack on China would cause a world war. Truman wanted to limit war and restore the border btween North and South Korea. The Soviet Union and the United States divided Korea knowing at one point it will be reunited again. The Soviet Union wanted the communist government. The United States wanted a noncommunist government They feared communist sympathizers and spies might be secretly working to overthrow the government. Them worrying about this sparked a hunt for Communists within American society. MacArthur sent troops over seas into Inchon behind North Korea lines and soon pushed North Korean troops back across the 38th parallell China Enters the War By: Ali Novak & Russia and China were on the north and west side of Korea and Japan was on the east. They all competed to control Korea Japan ended up ruling Korea as a colony from 1910-1945 The cease-fire set the border between North and South Korea near the 38th parallel. This is close to where it had been before the war. Section 2 By March of 1951United Nations troops regained control of the South. In July 1953 both sides signed an armistice to end the fighting. It redrew the border between North Korea and South Korea near the 38th parallel, where it was before the war. It also set up a demilitarized zone along the border. Some Americans had turned against democracy and free enterprise during the Great Depression. Search for Spies(continued) Search for Spies Setting The Scene As the United Nations got close to Chinese border Chinease troops crossed into North Korea North Korean troops moved into South Korea. South Korea was overwhelmed by the attack, but President Truman responded forcefully. He asked United Nations to send military forces into Korea.

On January 24, 1848, James Wilson Marshall, a carpenter originally from New Jersey, found flakes of gold in the American River at the base of the Sierra Nevada Mountains near Coloma, California. Harriet Tubman was a America humanitarian and also and armed scout, and spy for the U.S Army in the American War. she was also a slave beaten in her childhood days. she escaped 1849 and returned to Maryland with her family "We still got a lot room for improvement but its all coming together." In 1838 and 1839, as part of Andrew Jackson's Indian removal policy, the Cherokee nation was forced to give up its lands east of the Mississippi River and to migrate to an area in present-day Oklahoma. The Cherokee people called this journey the "Trail of Tears," because of its devastating effects. The Trail of Tears remains one of the worst human rights disasters to befall Native American peoples in United States history.
