Random body and locker searches keep schools safer. When someone or their locker is searched, whatever it is that is illegal is removed and the student is suspended. This helps because it gets rid of whatever isn't safe and takes the person who brought it out of the school for a while. This avoids anything else from happening
I'm not saying that every student that gets caught with something is a bad student. Sometimes unsafe or illegal items are brought to school by "accident". We all know that accidents happen. That is why there are special guidelines for "accidents". For example, a boy goes fishing with his dad on Sunday. They use a pocketknife to cut and gut the fish. The boy puts the pocketknife back in his jacket pocket and wears the jacket to school the next day. The boy doesn't realize the knife is in there until he takes the coat off and puts his gloves in his pockets and outs and outs the jacket in his locker. Now the boy wouldn't have gotten in trouble if he had followed the guidelines for when accidents happen. All her had to do was take the pocketknife to an administrator and explain the situation and he wouldn't have gotten suspended. The locker searches enforce the rules because it gives the students an opportunity to keep themselves out of trouble, while keeping students from bringing anything because they know about the locker and body searches and wont bring anything to school to avoid punishment.
