He is very experienced in criminal law and is against mandatory sentencing. This journal presents information that the mandatory sentencing policy in the U.S. is a failure. It argues that Legislators thought that they could “get tough on crime,” especially drug crime. I feel this source gives educated reasons as to why drug policy needs to be changed. It also backs up my other sources with the same research results; by removing the sentencing discretion of judges, and replacing it with mandatory jail sentences, we are sending more offenders to prison instead of programs designed to rehabilitate.
In James Swanson’s book “Bloody Crimes: The Chase for Jefferson Davis and the Death Pageant for Lincoln’s Corpse,” the author gave a unique perspective on two remarkable historical events. Swanson’s book described the time nearing the close of the Civil War, but took a much different approach than I have ever encountered. Rather than speaking of the Union and Confederacy and the battles the ended the war, Swanson focused on the expedition of Lincoln’s body after his assassination, while at the same time, telling of Jefferson Davis’ elaborate journey to elude capture. “Bloody Crimes” compiled two very different historical events and connected them in one novel unlike any other. First I commend Swanson on his favorable portrayal of Davis, a man who is rarely positively revered in history, undoubtedly due to his Confederacy ties.
Rise to Rebellion Savannah Jones AP US History Rise to Rebellion is a historical fiction book about the American Revolution, and all of the events leading up to it. This book is special because instead of just telling it like it is, Jeff Shaara gives us readers the opportunity to figuratively live our lives through the minds of different characters throughout the story.

The first event leading up to the American Revolution is, in fact, the Boston Massacre. It all started out when a soldier was attacked by a group of angry rebels, who challenge the soldiers to fire into the crowd.

The war on drugs is why the American prison population has escalated. Because drug crimes have escalated the prison population has tripled since the early 1980s. Homicide, robbery, and assault are no longer the number one reasons for incapacitation; this is the reason prisons are so overcrowded (Foster, 2006). In this paper the student was asked to analyze federal and state anti-drug legislation.
The Issue Since September 11th 2001 the United States have been at war with terrorists who have brought the fight to America’s homeland. This is not the first time wars have been fought within the American borders, but recent events in history have kept the majority of fighting off of American soil. “The militarization of domestic policing in the United States coincided with the onset of two ongoing "wars": the "war on drugs," which began in earnest in the 1980s, and the "war on terror," which assumed much greater dimensions in the early 2000s. Like any other war, these conflicts utilize military personnel, equipment, and tactics to combat and eradicate real and perceived enemies” (Hall & Coyne, 2013). On 9/11 terrorist where able to murder over 3,000 people many who were civilians.
He analyses facts from american history and describes the paranoid style through these events. His goal is to define an archetype of the paranoid style in order to identify which people are more likely to have this kind of behaviour. Several concepts such as treason, belief or persecution are presents in the majority of the events described by the author. Although it is focusing on america, Hofstadter states that the U.S aren't an isolated case and that the paranoid style can be found in almost every country's history (for instance, conspiration theories targeting Freemasons, Communism or the jewish lobby are international).
