Bobby is angry with his supervisor and takes a gun to work to which he wants to scare his supervisor so he waves his gun around and starts yelling at his supervisor. Obviously Bobby should not have brought his gun to work to scare his supervisor, so the Police are called and when Officer Goodman arrives, he calmly asks Bobby to put down or give the gun to Officer Goodman. At this point, the gun accidently goes off hitting Officer Goodman in the hand. The question is if this violates the assault statute? On page 557 of Introduction to law by Joanne B. Hames and Yvonne Ekern, the definition of assault is the placing of another in apprehension or fear of an imminent battery; it is both a crime and a tort.
If one country is threatening another country, then they go to war and attempt to kill each other off. The movie, “A History Of Violence” portrays the idea of humans being inherently violent through the actions of Joey/Tom and his acquaintances. In one of the opening scenes, there are two murderers that enter Tom’s Diner at closing time. The men attempt to take everyone in the restaurant hostage and seconds before the raping of the waitress, Tom smashes a coffee pot on the face of one of the murderers and shoots and kills both of them. As the murderers were preparing to kill everyone, Tom attempted to talk to them and alleviate the situation to avoid anybody getting hurt.
Officers have the rights to perform a pat-down search of the outer garments of a suspect for weapons if he or she has been legitimately stopped with reasonable suspicion and only when the officer has a reasonable fear for his or another person’s safety. Officer Smiths pat down was legal because it was necessary to ensure her safety. Officer Smith conducted a Terry frisk, which requires a reasonable suspicion the suspect is armed. Since the general description of the vehicle that killed another officer fit the description of the vehicle that killed another officer, Officer Smith pulled over; she has the right to pat-down the driver for her own safety. Did exigent circumstances exist for Officer Smith to give chase to this vehicle?
Would carrying a concealed weapon make every day citizens feel safer knowing they have something to defend themselves with instead of standing by and watching while criminals break in their homes or even rob them on the streets. What if having that weapon is a matter of life or death for you? The one question people toy around with is if the right to bear arms is unconstitutional. Some say that the second amendment is meant for only a well-regulated militia to have the right to bear arms, or that the fact of being able to carry guns is just silly. 2 Info The right to bear arms is presented in the Second Amendment of the U.S. Constitution.
Such incident would definitely support the writer’s point of view and give her a clear justification for her argument, particularly in a situation where using a personal gun against the attacker might save a family member’s life. On the other hand, and because Chavez is depending on her personal experience for not having a weapon to defend herself in couple of incidents, she was only expressing the situation as a victim. She is assuming that the victim will be able to protect him/herself more efficiently with a gun in case of criminal attack, therefore, she ignores the fact that the chances of escalating the situation when the victim has a weapon is considerably high. Unlike the victim, the attacker is usually more prepared for using a gun, and in most cases, he
Grifin M. Price Kendra Gallos English III H 3/21/18 Gun Control Will Not Solve Anything Guns are given a bad reputation because of the terrors that can be committed by people who want to cause harm. Those who are gun control advocates wish to ban certain weapons without basis, ban certain weapon attachments, and restrict the rights of the second amendment. Gun control supporters base their opinion on statistics about gun violence that use a portion of data that is not about gun violence just to boost the value of the number. Supporters of gun control dismiss the saying “The only thing that stops a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun,” because they are misinformed about the number of defensive gun uses (DGU) which far outnumbers the
Emily Burleson 1/15/2013 Mr. Zimmer CJ227 Police Encounters with Suspects and Evidence Did Officer Smith have a reasonable suspicion to make the initial traffic stop? One of the more dangerous jobs an officer has is traffic stops. “The officer never knows what will happen during that stop and must stay alert so nothing can happen to the officer (Anti Essays)”. 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.
The skinheads thought out a plan by having walkie talkies to communicate during the shooting. They were in all different locations so they all would not be caught together. This is what I would call group thinking for the bad. How awesome the world would be if we could form together like this for the good of all men and women. Fudge and his group, in my opinion, did not make the best decision as a group to retaliate against the skinheads for pulling a gun at Malik.
After feeling threatened Daniel pulls out his weapon which may have been concealed within his vehicle and shoots Malik. At this point Daniel becomes a defendant because even though he was defending himself he still discharged a weapon in a public event which is against the law, because only public officials who are licensed to carry and use a firearm in public events may do so. When Daniel slips into a diabetic coma as a result of the beverage he had drink earlier becomes the plaintiff against the concession worker who accidently had given him sugary beverages instead of diet becomes a defendant because of his/her negligence. Plaintiff: Malik, Daniel Defendants: Daniel because of his shove against Malik causing Malik to fall hit his
The young waiter with a wife waiting at home, begins to taps his foot for the man to leave so he can close the shop for the night. An older waiter contradicts the idea of closing, because the young waiter should be considerate of others desires and despairs. Like the deaf man, the older waiter is one who can’t sleep at night and causes them to be at war with themselves. The young, selfish waiter begins to wipe the table down with a rag, and proclaimed that the café was closed. The old man gets up, makes his way out the door, and down the street unsteadily.
