In the photograph it shows two protestors being attacked by K-9s, one protestor as the focus of the image and the other in the background of the photograph. The police officers in the photographs are allowing the dogs to attack these protestors, as it is seen that the police officers are not restraining the dogs and are in fact allowing them to savagely attack the protestors. Further evidence of the unethical treatment of these protestors was a statement made by the police commissioner Connor published along with the photographs it Vol 54. of Life Magazine in which he stated, “I want them to see the dogs work, look at those niggers run (30).” His comments and orders showed no sense of sympathy or professionalism in dealing with human beings protesting for equality. There was an assumption that had to be made that favored and supports the evidence that police officers were treating the protestors unethically. There is an assumption that the protestors were peacefully marching and gathering, which also shows the bias of the image, though powerful and real, it did not depict the nonpeaceful protestors, most of them young individuals, who were present in the Birmingham five-day riots
AFFIRMED.” Taser International Inc. cannot be held liable, based on the information available at the time, for not issuing warnings that repeated exposure to its product could lead to death, said an appellate court, in upholding dismissal of a 2004 wrongful death lawsuit.

When examining the argument of whether BSL is fair to pit bulls, one must view both sides of the debate. The reason why the pit bull is thought of as such an aggressive dog, is that these dogs were bred specifically for their strength. "Bull and terrier breeds were created in early 19th-century England for the popular spectator sports of bull- and bear-baiting." (DogTime) Over the last forty years the pit bull has been a large debate because of the amount of fatal attacks that have been from these dogs. "In 2015, the combination of pit bulls and rottweilers contributed to 91% of all dog bite-related fatalities."
Pornography can only be banned if considered obscene, which was determined during the Ferber Case. In the case of Miller v. California,) Ferber did not want to reflect on what the state considered obscene. Ferber was more interested in prosecuting those who promote the
Supporters argue that people that break the law should not partake in the process of it and argue that the potential loss of these basic American civil liberties can provide deterrence. The opposition argues that it violates the Eighth Amendment of the Constitution and disproportionately
Introduction: Despite the common misconception that capital punishment leads to a safer and utopian society, research provides evidence that there is no correlation between the two. During 1972, the Supreme Court of Georgia ruled against the use of capital punishment in the Furman v Georgia case. This ruling arose after three African Americans were put on stand after being accused for different cases of murder and rape. Although death penalty was already imposed for these three cases, the court decided that death was “cruel and unusual” and consequently abolished the use of it. The US Supreme Court’s decision on the abolition of capital punishment was correct because capital punishment violates the eighth and fourteenth amendments, provides no evidence of deterioration of crime rates, and falls unequally on society.
Dog fighting has become a major problem in the united states. Every state in any kind of community has dog fighting, but how can we stop this cruel manor? Recently on March 10th two Tennessee men were arrested for two counts of animal cruelty and one count of animal fighting. The dogs that were found were eleven pit bulls and ten pit bull puppies. The police also found dogs strapped to treadmills; chemicals to enhance muscle and training for the use of fighting.
Chavez, I cannot stress enough the emphasis on the objection letter from Cook County DA! Please, I need you to depict a different image of me or minimize its severity than originally portrayed by the DA. If we can counter attack the DA’s letter, most likely they will run out of ammo to attack us next time. The following emphasizes I need you to work on (just my recommendation, I am certain you have your strategy): • Minimize immigration/deportation since the DA claimed it is a federal concern but not the state • Primarily reason to seek pardon is to leave criminal life behind and move forward without any conscience 2. A license to freely practice mental health 3.
It violates both 1st and 14th amendment. The 1st amendment forbids the government from taking “favor” respecting one religion over another, and the 14th amendment directs citizenship rights and equal protection of the law. However, Ted Cruz believes that Muslims should not be given rights of freedom, and free speech, but should be scrutinized when they are the potentially dangerous. Therefore shall be disciplined with” arbitrary interference” (Universal Declaration of Human Rights article 12) within their personal life. Innocent Muslims are singled out for not being guilty of terrorism.
flag in The United States and abroad. However; the major limitation in Government prevention of desecration of the flag because of the Supreme Court Case Texas v. Johnson (1989) which ruled that the Government could not create laws against the defilement of the flag because the Supreme Court ruled that it violated the first amendment. To me protecting and ensuring that the flag is properly protected is of extreme importance and I feel as though there should be a government protection of the Flag. It is upsetting that people can freely disrespect the flag as they please because there is nothing that can be done to prevent desecration
Colorado and Unreasonable Search and Seizure in California, attorney Robert M. Desky states, “The United States Supreme Court, in Wolf v. Colorado, ' held for the first time that "the security of one 's privacy against arbitrary intrusion by the police-which is at the core of the Fourth Amendment,” Desky continues, “But at the same time the Court held that the states need not observe the federal rule which excludes from criminal prosecutions evidence obtained by illegal search. The majority opinion explained away the federal exclusionary rule as "judicial implication" based upon the Fourth Amendment, while Justice Black, in a concurring opinion, characterized the rule as a "judicially created rule of evidence," a description which seems more consistent with the Court 's suggestion that it could be changed by Congress.” According to Mr. Desky’s statement, the court believed that the exclusionary rule, which determines whether or not evidence is excluded from a trial, was left only up to the federal government and not the states. Therefore the state courts could not exclude any illegal evidence from a

The trial court dismissed the complaint.
They ruled that the 1st amendment did not guarantee ultimate freedom of speech and anyone violating the government could be overthrown by the state. The historical impact that the case was made mostly from Justice Brandeis, who stated that immediate serious and evil threats should be the only ones that are taken seriously enough to strip away someone’s granted rights. Brandeis’s opinion was put to use in 1969 when the case of Brandenburg v. Ohio, which is when the court overruled the decision. Yes, there are laws to help protect the natural-born citizens of this country, but if they can be taken and maneuvered to make sure the courts get what they want, why have
Point 1. The collected evidence ought to be suppressed for failure to issue Miranda warnings during a custodial interrogation. Miranda warnings were made mandatory by the Supreme Court to protect the citizenry from hard police interrogation tactics and forced confessions. However, when a private citizen becomes the interrogator outside, the application of Miranda becomes less strict. The Constitution does not restrain a private citizen in the same ways as law enforcement, unless that citizen is acting as an agent of law enforcement.
