He believes that assault weapon should only be used by security officials to protect or nation, and also, availability of assault weapons has given birth to violent crimes. In addition, he wants to implement stricter rule on background checks, making nearly impossible for criminals to get a hold of assault weapon. President is taking this step to reduce to prevent future
I didn’t think that if Batman killed the Joker he would be wrong to and if would basically be the same as vigilantes, taking the law into their own hands. I liked how the authors compared terrorism to this situation, it would not be fair if we tortured terrorist to tell us information. America is looked at as a superpower and a place where everyone comes for freedom, I feel if we start using water torture and other means to get information out of our enemies we would become just as bad as they are. I feel like the answer to both of these situations is no. Batman should not kill the Joker and we should not be torturing our enemies to get information out of them.
On the other hand, the basic tenets of American democracy grant all those accused of a crime the right to a fair trial. Given that terrorism inhabits a grey zone between crime and war, there is no clear ethical or moral imperative that can be made use of so as to evaluate the utility of these targeted extrajudicial
On the other hand, NSA Spying is actually very helpful when it comes to attacks that can harm us as a country. The NSA spies on potential people who are capable of committing terrorist or domestic terrorist attacks upon the U.S. This spying has helped us terminate terrorist attacks before they occur, attacks that could be put on the same scale of destruction as 9/11. The NSA is a very helpful government organization that has help fight the war on terror and extremist. NSA Spying should not be allowed because we as Americans have the right to privacy.
In a country full of violent crime, the United States continues to embody the gun as integral to it's protection and culture. While the Second Amendment of the United States Constitution grants the people the right to bear arms, the people must on the contrary protect themselves from those who bear them. In my view, guns give people a false sense of security and are more of a nuisance than a benefit. Guns are a threat to the peace and safety of society. Therefore, since it is unlikely that all guns will disappear in the United States, legislation must be enacted to ban and cease the further manufacture of the types of firearms involved in more violent crime than all others; handguns and assault-weapons.
Many believe that a government without limits will turn into a government that acts in ways that will disregard the rights of all in all circumstances (Zalman, M. (2008). Those who support the crime control model, however, indicate that these protections hinder law enforcement investigation and allow defendants more privacy than victims are allowed “Crime control emphasizes an efficient criminal process through early determination of guilt by law enforcement agents” and the Fourth Amendment prevents this (Cornell,
The Fourth Amendment allows the people certain protections, which allows a people to “be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.” (Find Law. Fourth Amendment) So before an officer can search you, or your home they must have probable cause and have a warrant in hand or risk any evidence being collected useless during trial. The Fifth Amendment allows helps protect the person being arrested by allowing them to remain silent, in return protecting them from incriminating themselves. When being arrested, by law the officer reads the person their Miranda Rights, which includes remaining silent, contacting or providing a lawyer, and also protecting from being tried twice for the same crime which comes under the protection of Due Process. The Sixth Amendment allows the right to a speedy and public trial allowing them to stand trial in the district they committed the crime and allowing confrontation from witnesses and those who could help assist the defense.
Police may seize property without a warrant if the evidence is in plain view (Justia.com, 2011). Police officers used to violate suspects’ constitutional rights by conducting illegal search and seizures that violates suspects’ rights. The exclusionary rule helps ensure law enforcement officers no longer violate suspects’ Fourth Amendment rights by obtaining evidence during illegal searches and seizures. The rule protects adults and juveniles. The exclusionary rule also deters unlawful police conduct because the evidence collected is inadmissible in a
Due Process Abstract This paper will discuss the concept of Due Process and how it affects the criminal justice system. In addition, the reader will also gain knowledge of how the adversarial system works. Also the rights of the accused and the process after a crime has been committed through post-arrest procedures will also be discussed in detail. Due process is envisioned to provide citizens of the United States with protection from government infringement on legal rights to life, liberty, and property without due process of law. The government cannot deny a defendant convicted of a capital crime of his or her life before the appeals process has been depleted.
The second issue is whether Joe Dullard's Fourth amendment right was violated. The IV amendment is “the right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.” In order to sue regarding an alleged Fourth Amendment violation, the plaintiff must have a legitimate expectation of privacy at the searched location. This expectation must meet both the subjective and objective tests of reasonableness. The subjective test requires the plaintiff to genuinely expect privacy, and the
