On his way to visit some Illinois relatives, the then 13 year old performed more robberies. Manson had been sent off to a reform school in Plainfield, Indiana, where he spent three years. At this location, he recollects violent abuse by older boys and guards. If we can find it possible to trust his memory, he claims at least one guard encouraged other boys to rape and torture Manson, while the officer masturbated on the
His statement was “In my training experience this guy had I’m a gang member written all over him” (pbs.org). During the investigation it was discovered that Gaines was connected to a rap label called Death Row records that was owned by Marion “Suge” Knight.

Robert Thompson and Jon Venables: Robert Thompson and Jon Venables were both 10 years old when they abducted and killed two-year-old James Bulger in 1993. The young boys snatched the toddler from a shopping mall while his mother was inside a store, and took him on a 2.5-mile walk across Liverpool. The boys were seen walking by approximately 38 people, but many assumed he was their younger brother. Venables and Thompson took Bulger to a railway line where they tortured and brutally attacked the toddler. Bulger suffered multiple skull fractures from blows to the head, and was sexually abused by the two older boys.
The police coerced Timothy Evans into a false confession by threatening him. After Evan’s execution the police found out that Evans was telling the truth and in fact John Christie was a serial killer who killed many women in his home. Evans received a posthumous pardon 16 years after his
“On Jan. 15, 1974, Joseph Otero Jr., 38, his wife Julie, 34, and two children were found murdered in their home. Three other family members -- Charles, 15; Danny, 15; and Carmen, 13; were not home during the killing spree.”(Kari & Associates 2006). After this, Dennis Rader killed Kathryn Bright, hiding in her bedroom until she arrived home. “She was accompanied by her 19 year old brother Kevin. They were both taken by surprise when a man came out of the room with a gun.” It was a little bit of a struggle for Dennis Rader, but he eventually killed Kathryn Bright, and he left Kevin Bright with permanent damage.
Craig Price (also known as the Warwick Slasher, born August 1974) is a serial killer from Warwick, Rhode Island. He was arrested in 1989 for four murders committed in his neighborhood: A woman and her two daughters that year, and the murder of another woman two years prior.  He had a previous criminal record for petty theft.  After he was discovered, Price calmly confessed to his crimes.  Arrested a month before his 16th birthday, he was tried and convicted as a minor.
Decision of the Court: His charge was held and he was charged for the murder of his wife. Reasoning of the Court: If the suspect could destroy the evidence then at that time and manner it is constitutional to take the sample or whatever they may need. There was no formal arrest therefore it technically could also be allowed. Under these circumstances, the police are justified in subjecting him to the very limited search and seizure to preserve the evidence they found under his fingernail. Notes * Don’t need search warrant for fingerprints, voice, handwriting * Search to take place because of probable cause, not a full search b/c not arrested.
They lied about getting a warrant and in turn let a killer walk away from the situation with no punishment. Like I said previously if they would have used the ethics of virtue system they would have went about things in an honest manner and even though it might not have saved the life of Detective Griffiths it would have put his killer in jail. Ethics training for our officers is very important to maintain order (Papenfuhs,2011). However, when really spending some time and thinking about this situation I wish our legal system could in some way take into account the pressure we put on cops and when we know for an absolute fact a serious crime as been committed that the criminal could still be punished regardless of the mistakes of cops. I don’t think the people should be able to get off that easy simply because of a legal mishap and in fact disgusts me that his has happens numerous times every year.
This argument can be compared to if a police officer shoots an innocent man, the country should purge police officers of their weapons. When reviewing at the examples, one argument cannot be made without including the other. For the good of the country, some sacrifices must undeniably be made. The Death Penalty system needs to be revised to produce positive results and deliver justice promptly. The death penalty must remain a valid source of punishment because with the court system we have today, most sentenced for murder do not receive a life sentence and are released back into the public after a couple years.
