Andrew Jackson should not have been court-martialed for seizing control of two Spanish forts. To begin, in 1818 General Andrew Jackson took control of two Spanish forts in Spanish East Florida without permission to do so.

He agreed that it was not right of Jackson to initiate military action, but argued that the American people would be greatly upset by a court-martialing of Jackson, their hero. As President, Adams knew the importance of pleasing the people. In addition to this, Adams also argued that because Jackson’s actions had not caused any
In September of 1961, a woman from District of Columbia had an intruder break into her apartment. While the invader of the home was there, they had taken her wallet, and also raped the woman.

While President Jackson might’ve been remembered as a national hero, with his image being immortalized onto the $20 bill, I believe that President Jackson was simply bad at his job of managing the United States, and should be guilty all for the crimes he performed. Not only did President Jackson introduce the spoils system, a method of assigning government positions simply to any person who supported one’s campaign, whether or not they were good at the job, but Jackson also jeopardized the entirety of the US’ economy, leading up to the Panic of 1837, and finally, committed atrocious crimes against the indigenous Native Americans who lived there. While he was viewed as a champion of the people, he should be remembered as a terrible president,

During the early to mid 1900s there was a lot of racism, especially in the southern United States. This is expressed more inside the court cases of the time.

The reason O.J. was found not guilty of murder and acquitted in criminal court, but found guilty of the tort of harm and ordered to pay damages in the civil court lies in the structure of our legal system, in regards to criminal cases and civil cases. The distinct difference between criminal cases and civil cases provides further explanation regarding the O.J. Simpson case. Criminal cases deal with crimes against society. It is the government, not the victim, who brings action against the charged individual. In criminal cases, the penalties can include a number things including jail time. Since the stakes are so high in these cases, there is a high burden of proof on the prosecution. The prosecution must prove the defendant’s guilt “beyond
