Thoreau states, “ I have paid no poll-tax for six years. I was put into jail once on this account, for one night”(316). This quote shows that he didn’t feel he needed to pay taxes because it was all used toward the war in Mexico. Thoreau didn’t agree with going to war with Mexico, so he believed it was not his duty to support them by paying poll tax’s. This quote also proves that the government is only taxing people in order to pay for the war.

The experiment was supposed to last two weeks but ended up only lasting six days because of the way that people abused their power and did not do the morally right thing. In the Stanford prison experiment, the guards were too afraid to go against the guard that was taking charge because he put himself as this role of a higher authority. He took charge and all the other guards followed him even if what he was doing to the prisoners was wrong. The rest of guards stood by it and let it happen because they were afraid of what would happen to them if they did not. The power got to their heads and they mistreated the boys even when they knew it was the wrong thing to do.
During the trial cases in the months of march and April, the detectives and the court were able to see the revealing cover-up story of president Nixon. On March 23, burglar James McCord told the district judge that he was pressured into silence. As things began to get even more interesting, an F.B.I director Patrick Gray resigned after he admitted to destroying the watergate scandal evidence for protection of Richard Nixon. This would cause a chain reaction which would lead to more people resigning and revealing information that each individual had a role in the watergate scandal and how they tried to cover Mr. Nixon tracks (Historyplace.com, 2009). Just as the year was ending President Richard Nixon found himself in between a rock and hard place.

The rules main goal is to prohibit evidence obtained in violation of a person's constitutional rights from being admissible in court (Siegel 2010). The exclusionary rule may prevent evidence seized in violation of a person's constitutional rights from being admitted into court, an officer who has violated someone's rights could also be sued along with their agency. According to Section 1983 of the U.S. Code an officer could be prosecuted criminally under some circumstances as well (Forsythe n.d.). The case United States v. Leon is notable because due to this case the good faith exception was added to the exclusionary rule. The exemption allows evidence collected in violation of privacy rights as interpreted from the Fourth Amendment to be admitted at trial if police officers acting in good faith relied upon a defective search warrant (Siegel 2010).

The courts have upheld absolute liability offences that could not result in
Shortly after 7:00 P.M. on Sunday, February 26, 2012, seventeen-year-old Trayvon Martin talked on his cellphone with his friend, Rachel Jeantel. He carried a bag of Skittles and an Arizona watermelon juice cooler as he headed along a sidewalk in the Retreat at Twin Lakes townhouse community in Sanford. When George Zimmerman, driving his SUV to Target for an errand, looked out his window he spotted Martin and concluded, as he told police in a phone call, he was "a real suspicious guy." What about Martin made him suspicious is not completely clear. What is known is that Martin is that he was unknown to Zimmerman, young, wore a hooded sweatshirt, walked slowly in the rain--and, most central to the debates that would later ensue, was black.
