Setting: School hallway in front of Peter's and Patty's lockers.
THE PRINCIPAL: Peter and Patty, please open your lockers. It has been reported to the office that you brought pagers to school. You know it is against the rules to have a pager at school.
PETER: I do not have a pager in my locker. I will not open this locker without you getting a search warrant.
PATTY: I also do not have pagers in my locker. Unless you have a search warrant, you have no right to search my locker.
THE PRINCIPAL: I have here the combinations to both of your lockers. If you will not open the lockers for me, I will open them on my own.
PETER: If you find anything, you cannot use it against me to punish me.
PATTY: Don't you know anything about the Fourth Amendment? You can't just search anywhere that you want. This is my private locker.
