Authorities such as The Orange County Fire Authority and The Santa Ana Police Department confirmed using CCTV cameras that the driver had hit a centre divide which therefore projected the car into the building wall. Authorities also confirmed that the vehicle was traveling upwards of 150 miles per hour (mph) in a 60-mph zone. Shocking pictures upon police arrival showed the vehicle glued into the wall with tons of debris dispersed on the ground. The removal process entailed the use of a crane which was appointed by officials to evacuate the facility, and create a safe environment for businesses and the street to be open again to the public. This distressing event beseeches the question to the individual and society about what effect the taken drugs had on the brain to impact thought processes and functionality.
This means America isn’t completely controlling who all can get guns — nobody is. While universal background checks seem like common sense, gun lobbyists say that criminals could just get their guns from the black market so there is no point controlling all gun sales (Sullum). Despite this, if the checks stopped only one person, they would be effective. The solution to the problem regarding controlling all gun sales is a simple one — implement universal background checks.
When his SUV came up to the stop light, he could hear someone call his name, so he rolled his back window down to see who that’s when he was shot multiple times in the torso and then the suspects drove away from the murder.

the State, the Court upheld the admission of testimony by a State Police officer regarding tire marks left in the dirt at the crime scene matched Brown’s car, resulting in Curtis Andrew Brown being convicted by a Coffee County jury on two counts of aggravated assault, but appealed the case stating there was not enough evidence to convict him. The victims were an elderly, married couple who owned a bicycle shop out of their home in Coffee County.

While Brown sat in his older, green Chevrolet Blazer, his friend was able to sell his bicycle to the elderly man for cash. The friend mentioned to Brown that the elderly man’s wallet was thick.
“This case is not a difficult one, it requires no minute sifting of complicated facts, but it does require you to be sure beyond all reasonable doubt as to the guilt of the defendant. To begin with, this case should have never came to trial. This case is as simple as black and white. (203) In To Kill A Mockingbird Harper Lee presents the idea that justice was not served for blacks in the 1930’s because Tom Robertson was not given a nondiscriminatory trial nor do blacks get the same rights as oppose to if you were white. The author presents this idea through irony, setting, and characterization.

I am a victim to texting while driving but nothing is being done to prevent it in teenagers and young adults. Florida to be specific does not do enough to protect people against distracted driving. The law has been established as a secondary offense instead of being a primary offense. The law only states that drivers must not be caught doing something illegal, like running a red light or swerving across the road, or they will face the penalty of a $30 fine. Followed by the counterclaim of while there is always the option of Florida raising the fine or considering that this offense shouldn’t be secondary, people who are inside of a vehicle also need to reconsider what they are doing while operating heavy machinery.
Irresponsibility is a theme prevalent throughout the novel seen in characters like Owl Eyes, Jordan, and Daisy; their actions surrounding car accidents and conversations with other characters provide evidence that Fitzgerald desired to convey the irresponsibility of the upper class. At the first party, Nick attends there is an accident as guests begin to leave, and he realizes Owl Eyes was the driver. Owl Eyes makes excuses for his actions and says, “‘Don’t ask me...I know very little about driving - next to nothing” (Fitzgerald 54) while others try to explain to him that the wheel came off and he cannot simply drive away. The topic of driving appears again in a conversation between Nick and Jordan where she states, “‘It take two to make an accident’” (Fitzgerald 58); Nick accuses her of poor driving, but she believes her actions are irrelevant as long as she does not meet someone like herself. Finally, the
Boston Marathon bombing suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev was not immediately informed of his Miranda rights, although he was questioned by police. Under the public-safety exception to the law, law enforcement may question a suspect without invoking Miranda if the police have credible reason to believe the suspect may have information about an imminent threat to public safety. Once he was read his Miranda rights, police said Tsarnaev stopped answering questions (Imbriano, 2013). Conclusion Miranda v. Arizona, although nearly 50 years old, stands as one of the most well-known and important Supreme Court rulings. The law, which attempts to balance the rights of the individual with the ability of law enforcement to solve crimes and keep the public safe, has been challenged, upheld, revised, and challenged again through the years.
After searching the area for more clues, “a nearby bank videotape showed the Ryder truck parked “outside the Murrah building” (Casey).

The videos from these sources are not being released, however, as investigators do not want the evidence to be tainted. When asked if the videos show if Clark was handcuffed or not, Department of Public Safety spokesman Bruce Gordon reiterated that the videos did not capture the whole incident. The head of the Minneapolis police union, Bob Kroll, said that he hopes the people saying that Clark was handcuffed “make a statement to the BCA on the matter.” He also believes that if those making these statements are lying, “they should be charged with a crime.” Drew Evans, of the BCA, says that it usually takes two to four months for an investigation, but the Clark case “has been given top priority.” The FBI has also agreed to conduct a civil rights

The plaintiff proved the rock was what indeed struck her and that it was thrown in the direction of her from the road. Since there was not intent to trespass and not an extra hazardous activity, the plaintiff could not collect money for her injury. This relates to class because it discusses responsibility of personal property (the defendants pickup truck). He is responsible for making sure there are no rocks (or hazardous material) in his tires possibly acting as a threat to others. Though he is responsible for his pickup, in this case there was more to the story and he was not responsible to pay.
