  1. At a local airport, the police have been trying to crack down on drug smugglers. The officers have been checking flight manifests for passengers who paid for their tickets in cash and who are flying from a city that is perceived as having a large drug trade. Any number of passengers could fit this description. When a match is spotted, the officers set aside the person’s baggage to be searched by a sniffer dog without the person’s knowledge or consent. Is this fair? Why or why not? What rights and freedoms are at issue?
