One thing is that the US took full responsibility of anyone person living Florida injured during the time America was taking over. Citizens could make claims for damage resulting from the fighting, but the United State would not pay more than five million dollars in these claims. The US also thought that Spain should pay for some of the claims by their citizens. Three commissioners were chosen to decide if the claims are true or not and had the consent of the Senate. The President can fill the spot of one of these commissioner if he is dead, sick, or is taking necessary absence but also has to take oaths.
SOUTHERN TIER (WENY) - Elected official, Assemblyman Phil Palmesano, is joining in on the fight to combat heroin. Palmesano along with the New York State Assembly Minority Task Force unveiled a comprehensive plan to tackle the on going drug problem happening across the state.

Illegal firearms from southern states are consistently used in New York crimes. I feel that state laws associated with firearms need uniformity. The federal government has to pass a gun law for all states to follow. Gun laws issues are extremely critical because it can save thousands of people’s
Answer 1.) J. Charles Sterin noted, “The newly radio network developed a two-pronged strategy in their effort to drive the many small local stations out of business”. Postivie consequemce for the large radio networks were they had help from the FCC rules and law. This business proved very profitable with the FCC’s help. An Associate Professor of Broadcasting and Mass Communication at State University of New York named Fritz Messere, mentions on his website a passage that the commissioners wrote in the first Annual Report of the Federal Radion Commission said “The passage of
In cases such as these, laws were passed without a second thought as a standing innovation from both sides of the senate arose to acknowledge the president’s declaration. Although it is easier said than done to care about the welfare of ex-prisoners, it is in every person’s best interest to provide them a second chance at success. The simple fact is that at least 95 percent of all convicts in America will ultimately be freed and returned to the community. However, some on-parole offenders not only struggle with meeting with their parole officers but paying for the service itself as well. Besides having to dedicate to their new job, ex-felons in states such as Pennsylvania must pay a $60 fee just to register for the parole program.
Body cameras can also improve police officer behavior, according to the Rialto police department, when implementing a body – worn camera program, citizen complaints against police declined by 88 percent in 2011 (White 20). Supporters of body - worn cameras argue that the video evidence can be used to facilitate the arrest and prosecution of offenders, since the footage is a permanent record of the events that had occurred. Using this footage, officers will be able to face the consequences of their actions, due to the footage significantly strengthening the prosecution’s case (White 24). Finally, body - worn cameras can serve as an important training tool for officers. In the Miami Police Department, officers have been using body -worn cameras in the training academy since 2012.
If the accuser is found to have 10% liability in the accident, then the compensation amount declines by this percentage. As a professional established law firm in Tavares, Johnson and Johnson specialize in protecting its clients against faulty countercharges put across by illicit businesses. Damage Caps in Personal Injury in Florida The statutes of damage caps have defined a limit on the amount of compensation a victim can receive with respect to the case and losses incurred. While the limit has been set to $500,000 it is not an absolute value that pertains to every case. If the compensatory damages exceed the amount then the accused needs to fulfill the
For example, it was a good defense strategy for the Indiana State Police to drag out the Davis case for almost 5 years, fighting to keep a jury from hearing the case. Individuals with limited financial resources may be forced to drop their cases against the department due to the high cost of legal fees (or the defendants may die or move away and lose interest). It would have been much faster and cost effective to let the Davis case go to a jury trial. However, the Indiana State Police did not want the case to go to trial because they knew the truth would come out. In other words, the only way the Indiana State Police could have won the case was to not let a jury hear the case.
About 1 in 3 black males are likely to go to jail,while 1 in 17 white men are likely to go to jail. Blacks and hispanics make up 58% of all prisons in 2008. It is estimated that if blacks and hispanic people are arrested at the same rates as whites,the jail population would decline approximately 50%. This wouldn’t be possible because there are laws enacted to keep prison cells filled, in order for certain people to continue making a profit from these prisons. These laws are similar to the ones in the time of jim crow, are used as a method to keep blacks down just like slavery.They stop people’s right to vote,the right to serve on juries, the right to be free from racial discrimination in emploment,housing and acces to public benefits.Systems
In 2009, Governor Bev Perdue and a bipartisan group of state legislators and other leaders requested help the Council of State Governments Justice Center to develop a statewide plan to reduce spending on prisons in North Carolina. In reducing the amount of funds spent on prisons this will increase public safety, also use the current funding available as efficiently and effectively as possible. In the State of North Carolina, inmates who are sentence to 90 days or less will serve their sentence in county or local jail at the county’s expense. In some counties long-term misdemeanant sentences as well as those with felony sentencing were being served by inmates in a county jail. However, effective January 1, 2012, all defendants that were sentenced to over 180 days for a misdemeanor and for those who were sentenced for a felony must serve their sentences in the state prison system and not at any of the county
From the book Zeitoun proves that Fema had mismanaged funds and did not take care of the most important tasks during the hurricane. According to the website Prison Legal News “Over 6,000 prisoners who had been packed into the Orleans Parish Prison (OPP) were displaced as a result of Hurricane Katrina” (Williams, Bob). That a mass of amount of prisoners in a short period of time at the cost of the Federal emergency management agency costing Fema big. Another fact for the state by Prison legal news “The DOC reportedly received funds from the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) for each prisoner in custody -- the more prisoners, the higher the per diem payment. According to one report, FEMA 's projected payout to the DOC for just one day in December 2005 was over $146,000.
Oklahoma State Legislature must act swiftly and with force to impact the fight. Laws already in place are being amended in an effort to reduce potential threats for adolescents in Oklahoma. For example, Oklahoma State Senator Josh Brecheen added to an already existing law to include how a person can be penalized, rather than increasing the penalty itself. “Another major change is currently sex traffickers can only be penalized if they recruit through fraud, deception or coercion. Under the new law, anyone found recruiting for sex trafficking, regardless of how they do it, will be penalized (Oklahoma State Senate).” Brecheen should be applauded in his endeavors to make a stand against human trafficking.
This connects to the topic because it supports that more cases of a homicide are increasing. Furthermore, “A civil rights group filed a federal lawsuit Friday aimed at getting Georgia’s “stand your ground law” thrown out, arguing the statute is arbitrary and hurts young black men more than anyone else.” ( Cook, 2013). This evidence supports that the same arbitrary that is causing youth death. These quotes connect because they support that the same chain of events repeat, with no
