Despite this, the police still use them, as they do with Tommy Ward, when he goes to the Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation (OSBI) to prove to the law enforcement agents that he had nothing to do with Denice Haraway. Ward takes the test, but the results of the polygraph are never revealed. The agent (WHO???) tells Tommy that he failed the test, and whether or not this is true, the results mean nothing. If it were true that Tommy failed the test, it would not mean he had a hand in the crime; his failure could be attributed to the 40% error rate of polygraphs (Dowler, n.d.).
Defore’s objection did not favor one item over the other. If any of the items were admissible, his objection does not succeed. In this situation it is not necessary to find out whether the items are lawfully owned. There are situations when items, not contraband at all, may be seized and submitted into evidence. In this case, if the coat had been priced fifty-one dollars rather than fifty dollars, it would have been a lawful arrest because the police officer might apprehend the defendant if a felony had been committed and there was a reasonable cause to think that he did it.
By his actions readers can conclude that Hop-Frog is a very evil and revengeful person. Hop-Frog went so many years without doing anything, so by him waiting to do something was negative To conclude, the Prince in “The Masque of the Red Death” dealt with his conflict negatively. As soon as Prince Prospero knew about the disease he immediately tried to build a wall to keep it out, because he didn’t want to face it himself. The Prince just wanted to shut it out. This is very negative because it didn’t solve any problems, it just postponed them.
In this case, there was no information availed to the magistrate so as to make independent and reliable conclusion as to the prudence of the unidentified police informant. b) The seizure of other contraband items found on the person of Raul outside the
The Sheriff who talked to Brandon had absolutely no compassion for him and what he went through. “Society 's posture on rape, and the manifestation of that posture in the courts, help account for the fact that so few rapes are reported” (Anonymous 247). This quote from The Rape of Mr. Smith relates to this scene because Brandon went through a terrible thing, that no person should have to go through, and he was interrogated about it and shown no compassion. “The law discriminates against rape victims in a manner which would not be tolerated by victims of any other crime” (Anonymous 246). This quote also
Multiple witnesses admitted to having seen Steve Harmon the day of the crime, or even seeing him at the drugstore during the hour of the robbery. Towards the middle of the trial, Steve writes in his journal “I thought, as I tried not to throw up, that I wanted to be tough like them” This quote shows that he wanted to act like Bobo and Osvaldo. He wanted to be a part of the gang. However, not that he is, not that the is on trial for committing a serious crime, he doesn’t like it. Steve is regretting whatever he did as a part of this day.
He had been calm enough to call the sheriff in order to arrest Tom Robinson, but had not thought to call a doctor. Or rather, he had chosen not to call a doctor. Dear members of the jury, why didn’t he? On the witness stand, Mr. Ewell said that “there wasn’t no need to” as he had seen what had happened. When asked whether he had not been concerned for Miss Mayella’s
He has no sympathy and only cares about the evidence of the case. On the website Study.com i found “When Juror Eight feels sorry for the teenage defendant, who is accused of murdering his father, because of the bad lot this boy got in life, Juror Four starts fixing his hair as he is uninterested in anything except evidence. He then says, 'We 're not here to go into the reasons why slums are breeding grounds for criminals; they are. I know it. So do you.
Two of names he said he didn’t know, but the third man was George Clark. The police couldn’t find a man by the name of George Clark but used descriptions given by Joe that leads to the arrest of Derek Tice. Derek Tice both dazed and confused was taken to the integration room to meet no other than Robert Ford. Similar to the other three men after eleven hours of threats, yelling, intimidation, and being told he’s not telling the truth Derek surrendered and signed validating his confession. All four men share the same following theme from Ford: If you tell the truth you die, but if you lie you will live.
This shows the author is trying to show us the poor background that he had, and he was never raised by his parents and later was raised by abusive orphanages. The novel represents Perry as mendacious and a criminal for being guilty of the murder of the Clutter family. Even though Perry is a criminal, the readers desire to learn more about him and learn
Witnesses maintained that Willis had acted suspiciously; he moved his car out of the yard, and didn’t show “any emotion,” as one volunteer firefighter put it. Authorities also wondered how Willis could have escaped the house without burning his bare feet. Fire investigators found pour patterns, puddle configurations, and other signs of arson.

Willis was charged with capital murder and sentenced to death.
