The Court stated reasonable suspicion to facts that can be articulated that are consistent with a violation of the law. In this fact pattern, Officer Smith noticed the taillight that appeared to be broken and covered by colored tape, this is a violation of proper vehicle equipment. Therefore, Officer Smith did have reasonable suspicion to make the initial stop of the vehicle (Supreme Court of Illinois, 2012). 2. Was the “pat-down” of the driver legal?

Identify the issue succinctly. | The law enforcement officials did suspect that the individual was driving under the influence and thus becoming a risk to himself and everyone else around him. Before the law enforcement officer can make an arrest there has to be a clear sign of probable cause if an officer neglects to find probable cause before arresting the individual when the trial comes along, the case will be dismissed in court and the offender will walk away free.
A search of a defendant’s car produced drugs in a paper bag, and a leather pouch of cash. The paper bag was deemed admissible in court while the leather pouch was thrown out. There was a “greater expectation of privacy” with the pouch. U.S. v Ross (1982) Search incident to lawful arrest is when a person is arrested the police may search the person and any area within that person’s reach. There is no warrant required for this but the officer must have probable cause for the arrest.
It is important in fatal collisions since the evidence will be required for a Coroners court for an inquest which is an enquiry into sudden, unnatural and suspicious deaths. Investigations into accidents include: * the condition of component parts of the vehicle e.g faulty brakes or worn tyres * Any contributory factors e.g weather conditions or road conditions * The length of any brake or skid marks * type of road and speed limits * witness statements * evidence of reckless or dangerous driving * evidence of driving whilst under the influence of drink and drugs Once the investigation has finished a conclusion of the cause can be drawn, and if anybody is found to be guilty of causing it. The need for fire investigation is to investigate the cause of a fire to see if they were started intentionally or accidentally. Fires tend to destroy evidence or clues to the cause but specialist fire investigation officers can say what the likely cause of fires are as well as where the fire started CRIME SCENE PRESERVATION (M2): The first personnel at the scene of the incident must record the time and date of when the incident occurred also they must record the weather conditions and protect the scene in any way
Justice is the concept of moral rightness based on rationality, natural law, fairness, law, equity, and ethics (Dictionary.com, 2009). Justice to me means giving what that person deserved for what crime they committed or in other terms giving each person their due. I also believe that everyone should be treated the same when being arrested no matter if you are a celebrity or not. There are to many times where celebrities get the easy road and do not even receive any jail time for a crime they have committed. If a regular citizen committed the crime they would receive time in jail for whatever crime in which was committed.
“Yes, it all makes sense. The pathetic car. The obsessive watchfulness and abhorrent vigilance with money (Zusak 213).” All of these actions that Ed had just simply accepted, now had a crucial story to tell. And being able to face his friend and move out of the don’t-ask-don’t-tell comfort zone they had been in, Ed matures. “Marv cracks… His hands appear to be dripping from the wheel.
The theory that I relate to the most is the virtue theory because it focuses on the moral codes that I have developed through personal life experiences. An experience that I can relate to this theory relates back to my military service. My job was to enforce the law by arresting/apprehending all individuals that broke the law. For instance, whenever I pulled an individual over for speeding, I would issue him or her a citation for their committed infraction. My decision is virtuous as the individual was creating an unsafe environment, and I was following a moral code.
From here on out till his shift ends every decision he is about to make has to be accountability. An example that an officer ratification on his split second decisions during a pursuit would be that they have to first make sure the public, the officers involved in the chase and the suspect all come out of this unharmed. They have to find a quick and easy way for them to be able to stop this suspect before he does more damage than already has been done.
[change tone/pace]Right now in Victoria the law states quote ‘Police and Emergency vehicles have exemptions to break rules in the case of emergencies and may act unpredictably,’ end quote. This means police cars are allowed to run red lights and pursue suspicious people; currently there are no speed restrictions on high-speed pursuits. And it is my view that it should be kept that way. If there were restrictions, the law offenders would just take advantage of this, knowing full well that the police are restricted to a certain speed. Many people would be driving as fast as the competitors in the grand prix and no one would be able to stop them.
The major reason for accidents is speeding and smart cars would warn the drivers when they are going too fast and tell them to break. Traffic would also be greatly reduced because the driver would know which roads have heavy traffic and they would avoid them. 2. Describe three different types of IT used to make smart cars unique. • Hypovigilance system.
