The trial judge granted the motion quashed the information which means to nullify, void, or delcare invalid.
McKenzie Pennington Mrs. Vonnegut Evidence and Procedure U.S. Vs Harrison US Vs. Harrison In this case the defendant, Johnny James Harrison was being watched on surveillance by agent Brenneman because of suspicion of drugs and firearms. During his surveillance on the defendant the agent did not see any evidence of illegal activity so he decided to “knock and talk”. A knock and talk procedure is a tactic used by one or two police officers to confront a person about the allegations that they were accused of when there is no probable cause to get a search warrant. Sometimes a knock and talk will result in the police asking to search with verbal consent from the owner. In this case Agent Brenneman knocked on Harrison’s door and told him the police had received an anonymous tip that there were bombs and drugs in his apartment.
In order to provide a safer environment where danger can be resolved more efficiently, teachers and faculty should be allowed to carry weapons in school. Typically, school massacres happen in the more suburban areas where the police stations are farther away so that even if the enforcements were notified of the occurrence, more than likely they would not make it to the scene in time resulting in the perpetrator getting away. If the teachers in the schools were able to pack heat, they could take action against the culprits. Not only will this save more lives, but the number of school shootings will drastically decrease as everyone would not attempt a school invasion as they are aware that the staff is well-armed. Some (mainly parents) may oppose to this proposition as it may be an awkward environment where students are trying to learn but are feared by the knowledge that the very person standing in front of them teaching, is armed with a dangerous weapon.
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.
School violence in all is harmful forms that has potentially serious short and long term affects on the individual student, the school as a whole, and the society. If students are in uniforms it can prevent robberies for their brand name clothing and shoes. The consequences for not being in uniforms are students could get shot at for having on the wrong colors, gang wars can start. “Parents are happy to have something worn that can’t be mistaken for gang attire.” (Myers, R. A. 1995, Sep 15) Uniforms can stop the haves
One of the most popular solutions being debated is the addition of armed guards. Parents think this might give them peace of mind during the school day. Some schools already have armed guards, many known as school resource officers. Typically, they are local police who carry their weapons in school. Many of these positions have had to be cut due to school budget cuts over the past several years.
Students might want to drop out because they are struggling in school, getting bullied, have a health issue, have personal family problems, or just have a planned out future that doesn't require a high school diploma. Making teens do something they absolutely don't want to do, especially after they are 16, can result in even worse outcomes. “Efforts to raise the age usually come up against the argument that requiring students to stay in school when they no longer want to be there is disruptive to the other students and not fair to the teacher”. Thats a very knowledgeable statement because its true that when teens want to drop out, they want to drop out before they are 18, so they are most likely going to be careless and disrespectful at school. Some teens have personal reasons that are sometimes urgent, and staying in school isn't an option.
Requiring students to wear a school uniform levels the playing field by reducing the implied class status that is created when only certain students can buy the most expensive clothes. Not only is teasing decreased, but violence can also be prevented at schools that have a required uniform. Gang violence is becoming more prevalent at schools around the country. Sometimes fights can start over someone wearing the "wrong color" or gang symbol. There have even been instances of gang members sneaking into schools to recruit or harass students.
Does individual freedom mean that students can bring whatever they want, including weapons, to school? Does safety of the school community mean that students must be searched or go through metal detectors every time they enter a school building? How do these questions apply to schools like Bishop Eustace where these extreme forms of violence If I could choose to either have more individual freedom and less safety or the individual freedom and safety that I presently have, I would want to continue living the way that I currently live. I do think that individual freedom in the United States means the freedom to pursuit and attain one’s individual potential and that the possession of firearms or weapons by a student in a school is in no way in keeping with that idea. Additionally, many students probably are incapable of properly using a gun and that makes it even more dangerous for them to have one.
