The National Center for Missing and Exploited Children, or NCMEC, states that on average seventy children are reported missing a day across the United States (Postma, 2015). Some of these children will be found safely, and will be returned to their homes from help of police and media coverage. Yet, others will go unnoticed and unreported by the media because of media biases. Children, under the age of 18, who are victims of abductions receive more media coverage when they are Caucasian than victims who are African-American.
The Fourth Amendment draws a line at the entrance of a home. In order for an officer to enter into a home, they must first obtain a warrant. While this is the easiest way to enter into a home, there are exceptions to the necessity of a warrant. An officer does not need a warrant when there is consent, it involves a vehicle, at incident to arrest, containers, or it is an emergency. This case is considered an emergency.

The speaker for the night terror informational speech had poor stage presence. Her clothing was extremely casual and she kept constantly swaying back and forth throughout the speech. The introduction did not clearly lay out what all her speech would cover, but she did relate it to the audience. Her over all casualness made the speech lose its professionalism and may lead to some of the audience questioning her credibility.
While the state of Mississippi, my home state, does provide for the expungement of juvenile records, the actual process of expungement is rare. The reason for this is the state laws, which govern the sealing of all juvenile records. Even though the state law calls for the sealing of juvenile records, juvenile adjudications can be taken into consideration, by judges of the circuit courts, when determining sentences. This records can also be used, and disseminated to others, usually by court order of the youth court. Section 43-21-263 of the Mississippi Code of 1972, provides for the sealing of all juvenile court records, once a person has reached 20 years of age.

The film Dear Zachary, directed by Kurt Kuenne, makes an argument in response to a very specific situation: the murder of Kuenne’s best friend Andrew Bagby and Bagby’s son Zachary, both killed by Andrew’s ex-girlfriend Shirley Turner. Kuenne argues that bail should be denied to anybody accused of a serious crime who also has custody of a child. While this argument is reasonable, it only provides a solution for very narrow circumstances. For the greater protection of society as a whole, an expanded version of Kuenne’s stance on bail laws is necessary. Bail should be denied not only to people accused of a serious crime who have custody of a child, but also to anybody suspect of a violent crime.
We get notified on our phones, television's, and even on the radio sometimes that there is a missing child. This system has saved the lives of so many children. This notification is called an Amber Alert. You would think that this would have always existed but it didn't even take effect until the late 90’s. Even after that it wasn't nationwide until later down the line.

Many opponents claim that the United States have the strictest sex offender laws in the whole world, which does no good to the community at large because the staggering number of sex offender registries screen the deadliest offenders. They argue that these American sex laws need a drastic reform, as these violate the human rights of the offenders. They further claim that these laws are implacable and not reasonable, simply because most of them are so called low rated offenders. Unfortunately, such critics of sex laws are willing to overlook the trauma of the victims or survivors, not to speak about the horrendous killing of those like innocent Megan,
During the 18th century Enlightenment the concept of rights, classical criminology, came into play. This was a time before law was “relational and obligational” (Classical). These ideas can be traced back all the way back to John Locke and Jean Jacques Rousseau with “life, liberty, and property” (Siegel 92). With classical criminology comes four basic elements. First, “people in society have free will to choose criminal or conventional solutions to meet their needs or settle their problems” (Siegel 92).
