In another landmark case Arizona v. Hicks, the warrantless search of the stereo was unconstitutional because it was not immediately apparent that the stereo was stolen without the procedure following it. The plain view doctrine could be used to confirm that there were gift cards in the bag, but it does not validate the warrantless scan of the gift cards by Officer Towns. Also, the unconstitutional search of the cards done by Officer Towns leads to the unconstitutional search of the
The War on Drugs has been criticized for its inability to decrease drug users and drug related crimes. The US government’s methods combat illicit drug crimes have made people question the main motives of War on Drugs. Since the US government declared the War on Drugs asset forfeiture has been widely used by law enforcement agencies to reduce drug criminals influence. Asset forfeiture is effective in tackling illegal drug crimes and funding government agencies, but the laws about asset forfeiture has been controversial due to its questionable profit incentives for law enforcement and inability to protect property owners from unfair seizures. Asset forfeiture is the legal process in which property is seized based on its association with illegal
Because these downloads tend to take place in the comfort of our own home, the ramifications and moral wrongdoings are not as apparent as stealing something from a store. Downloading music goes against the intention of the internet and presents dangers through others takin advantage of it. The internet was never meant to be used to commit crimes. Because of this sense of comfort, people are more likely to download multiple songs (as was the case with LaHara, Thomas-Rassett and Tenenbaum) and this hurts not just the artists but the crew who produce their music. The three cases discussed are important examples of the consequences that come with illegal music downloading and steps the RIAA is taking to help prevent such illegal
Now although the office filled the warrant out he didn’t specify which unit in a multi-family housing unit was supposed to be search. Unfortunately, the police raided the wrong house or residence, which in returned caused them to kick down the door as well as terrorize an innocent family. Therefore, an innocent person could have gotten killed which has happened before in New York. However, the requirement that the location of a search warrant be specific isn’t “a technicality” but a core principle of the Fourth Amendment (washingtonpost.com. n.d.).
This absence of total ownership begs the question: what is art theft? It 's clear that art can be stolen, books can be copied verbatim and other people 's work can be plagiarized. However, it is important to remember that there is a great deal of difference between mechanically copying something and developing a previous idea. In Lethem 's paper, he describes how an artist had used one of his earlier books and created a sculpture of a gun containing the original script. "I couldn 't take offense at that.
Identity and Expression Digital identity in the likes of freedom of expression, is contended by some to be constrained due to the impact it has to contemporary digital society, with the that freedom suggestion of expression infringes on other people 's rights and cause harm such as cyberbullying. Patently shown in ' The Price of Shame ‘video, the case examines Monica Lewinsky whose online identities were viewed and humiliated by millions. The scenario links closely to the reading of Fuchs, social media does not cause social issues, it magnifies them , ICT applications such as Facebook or snapchat are implements which aid in these social problems, scholars see them as platforms for behavior i.e. identity to be expressed, which often gives this impression for a trend to be growing. ‘The price of shame’ demonstrates how the web can magnify an issue and have lasting effects (reinforce the notion of the momentum of ICTS) due the marketing ideology businesses aim to make money from the extra attention ICT media gains, through the web 2.0 the internet acts as a supplier while the people who fixate and share it act as the consumers; falsifying that internet is perpetually renewing itself; Christian Fuchs (2014) critiques such to be corporate imperialism, denoting the digital society battles between intention and attention.
The first problem with using these as viable sources is the fact that they are surveys and not reliable statistical data that should be used for arguing how gun control laws affect violent crimes. The author had intended to use this information to compare violent crimes in the U.S. and England/Wales as the laws on guns were different in each nation. A simple problem with the reliability of this data is the fact that these are surveys. The author even went on to explain that these were surveys and not all crime is reported through voluntary surveys. I don’t think surveys should be used in an argumentative article about violence or gun control laws.
In the author’s opinion, guys are the ones controlled by their desires instead of controlling their desires. Paglia continues on by saying, “The police and I– have the right to say to you, ‘You stupid idiot, what the hell were you thinking?’”(145). This might be possible for the person who left car key on the hood, but it is very inappropriate and inhumane thing to say to a rape victim. The victim never gave permission to the rapist; going to someone’s room does not mean that she is agreeing to being raped. In my assumption, the author must have made this comparison due to the fact that she was never raped before, which makes her unqualified to make a comparison of such grief to a simple robbery.
The FBI seems to be making strides in preventing terrorist attacks, but this action should be made without social profiling and trolling the internet. Also, the repeal of Net Neutrality is another right being stripped from Americans. We deserve the right to an accessible internet that does not economically discriminate. All in all, the government does not have the right to monitor or limit internet content, as it skews our checks and balances system. Without these checks and balances we evolve into a country that oppresses its citizens.
Proponents of issuing driver’s licenses to illegal aliens have argued that it would improve national security and road safety. The security argument is spurious, because illegal aliens often use aliases and phony documents, so the alien’s identity and residence is not established as a result of the driver’s license process...” The argument about road safety relies on a faulty assumption that if illegal aliens are legally licensed to drive, they will all have accident insurance. But even if a state requires automobile insurance as a condition of getting a license, that does not keep an illegal alien from cancelling the policy the next day. Illegal aliens generally are working in low-wage jobs and have difficulty affording insurance, and their cars are frequently older and more accident-prone. Additionally, illegal aliens often are not able to read road alerts in English.
