Lyman-Chapter 12, pg.318 The evidence that would be available to the police is the defendant’s fingerprints that were found on the passenger’s door panel. The value of fingerprints at a robbery crime scene is immense, so it is essential to conduct a thorough search of all surfaces in or near the scene that the robbers might have touched. These surfaces include countertops, doors and handles, cash registers and computers, and any furniture encountered by the suspects.
One source states, “The evidence presented by prosecutors to accuse Casey Anthony as the murderer of her child was proved to be inadequate. From the "chloroform" internet searches to hair samples and the smell of decomposition from the trunk of Anthony's car, the prosecuting team found no luck in their presentation of evidence” . Prosecutors used evidence showing Casey Anthony was looking at things on google such as neck breaking and chloroform. This evidence is not strong enough to show there was chloroform used in the death of Caylee. Investigators went on to say the trunk of Casey Anthony’s car smelled of a decomposing body and chloroform.

It is extremely difficult to get a true sense of the illiterate culture that existed since that many of the peoples that lived within that culture were, in fact, illiterate. In an effort to combat this, William B. Taylor turns to researching criminal trials that took place in Colonial Mexico. Through this facet, Taylor was able to take advantage of the vast amounts of interrogation and testimonies of the Colonial people speaking upon their experiences being oppressed. After investigating the criminal records of the eighteenth century colonial period, Taylor was able to compress his study down to three aspects in order to more easily understand their society: drinking, homicide, and rebellion within the peasant community. The Mexican colonial villages within the 18th are very comparable to extended families.
My partner explains that occasionally, the unit must plant evidence to arrest top-level dealers and use force to gain information from suspects. With that being said, these statements did not sit right with me, so I immediately go to the precinct commander and request for a transfer, citing what was heard from the briefing. My precinct commander states to me that, “this is the real world and extreme measures are needed to combat with the precinct’s problem.” Over the next few weeks, I foresee that the unit does indeed plant evidence to commence an arrest and also, uses physical force during interrogations.

Officer Smith had reasonable suspicion to pull the car over for a broken taillight, which is a traffic violation, and can receive a “fix-it” ticket or a “correctable violations” ticket. Plus the car she pulled over matched the description of a vehicle that killed a fellow officer.

Not being certain of a persons identification could mean the release of a criminal with a warrant for his or hers arrest, but leaving patrol to go to the station takes manpower off the street. Using Facial recognition technology, officers are able to quickly and correctly identify people in the field.
