The age of the offenders continually decreases, and the brutality of the crimes seems to be increasing. Cameron Williams, age sixteen, celebrated his 16th birthday behind bars (Khan). This young man had been convicted of shooting a police officer who was chasing him around after he had been pulled over by the officer. Williams previously had charges of robbery and assault, also. “Even though he is a minor, Williams was charged in an adult court because of his troublesome history and the "serious nature of the crime," the county attorney's office said.

The case that sparked my interest on equal protection was Mississippi University for Women v. Hogan. This case allowed Joe Hogan, a registered nurse enrollment in two state supported coeducational nursing programs, but denied him enrollment in the Mississippi University for Women’s School of Nursing’s baccalaureate program, on the grounds that he was a male.

Connecticut State Lottery Case Matthew Beck was born in 1963; no one could have imagined that the Florida Institute of Technology graduate would turn out to be a mass murderer. Described by many as hard-working, intelligent, golf aficionado, not much about him fitted the profile of a serial killer. Regardless of the reason, id he just snap or was his action a result of a long history of “hit or relent”, the results became evident on March 6, 1998. He had “brushed” shoulders with all his victims, and it is most likely that he was seeking revenge. On the said day he came armed with a semi-automatic handgun, a butcher knife, and three clips containing at least 19 rounds each.

For many political scientists, the answer to Jon Tester’s victory is simple. After all, incumbents win nearly 80% of the time in the Senate. It can be expected that Tester would fall on the majority side of that break. Still, Montana is a conservative state, and Jon Tester is a Democrat who “votes with Obama 97% of the time”. He, like Obama, loves to spend money gained by raising taxes on hard-working Americans. He ran against Denny Rehberg, who had won in the same district he had – a benefit of Montana’s small voter population. He was one of the most vulnerable Democrats, running in a conservative state against someone who had been in politics for longer than he had, so how did he keep his position in the United States Senate?
Fighting over a color of a house seem a little silly. But that is the conflict Sandra Cisneros is facing due to her purple house in San Antonio. The author lives in the King William historical district. Before making any changes to their houses residents must get approval by Historic and Design Review Commission. The problem is that HDRC did not approve of her color choice. Since then Cisneros has refused to change her house. I completely agree with HDRC. Sandra Cisneros should follow the guidelines and change the her house into a historically correct color.

In regards to the Brent Small case, I personally believe that Mr. Smalls shouldn't be found guilty due to the lack of evidence. Although there was a witness who saw what happened, the evidence isn’t consistent with the case. The vehicle did match the description but the witness was unsure of the license plate and the damage to the vehicle isn’t significant to the crime committed. I don't believe that the evidence is strong enough to convict Mr. Smalls.
