In the article, no evidence was given that the officers did not follow protocol, as they did not enter the resident’s home without permission or a warrant. Police are allowed to enter a home under the circumstances of someone resisting arrest. (www.qld.gov.au/law/crime-and-police/being-arrested-and-police-custody/being-searched/) In this case, the article does not go into much about the public disturbance that John Felix committed, but usually disturbing the peace does not warrant arrest. Depending on how severe John was being a public nuisance, he could have been arrested to serve jail time. In that case, the officers would have been able to enter his home and arrest him.
William Furman was in the process of robbing a home and when he was searching around the house the homeowner woke up. Furman tried to run out of the house but he fell and when he fell his gun discharged and ended up killing the homeowner. As a result, Furman was convicted of robbery and murder. He was sentenced to death. Georgia law explained that because the murder happened during a robbery, Furman was eligible to be executed if the court found him guilty of the murder.
On Target, Inc., 353 Md. 544 (1999) is distinguishable because in that case criminals stole firearms that were used in a murder from defendant. Byrne, however, fails to appreciate that the means by which the criminals came into possession of the firearms was not outcome determinative in that case. Indeed, supposed the criminals had purchased rather than stole the firearms at issue, and the well-established principles with regard to an individual’s liability for the criminal activity of a third party would nevertheless have still applied to compel the same result. Rather, the material fact in Valentine was that—similar to this case—was that the firearms distributor could not be liable for the criminal’s conduct unless the distributor had a means by which to control the conduct of the criminal.
These actions did not go by what was established by an earlier, similar case, and by performing the scan with no warrant, the government did not allow DLK to conduct private activities in his own home. Although some argue that the government’s actions were acceptable because they only scanned what was visible to the public, they still used a device not readily available to the public to see inside DLK’s home. The government’s actions were unacceptable, and a warrant should have been obtained prior to performing the search in order to make it
Statements by Thomas conveyed that he knew that what he had done was wrong after he had after committing the crime. However, it is unclear that he knew this while committing the murder. This, along with self-injury that included the removal of both his eyeballs, built a case against sentencing Thomas to death on the basis that he was mentally incompetent. His attorneys argued that his execution would violate the clause of the eighth amendment that prohibits cruel and unusual punishment. Prosecutors in this case would claim that his history with drugs and alcohol put him in this state, rather than a true mental illness (TX Tribune).

The case of R. V. Askov began in November 1983 when Askov, Hussey, Melo and Gugliotta, were charged with conspiracy to commit extortion against Peter Belmont. On top of Extortion they had multiple existing firearm charges to which they severed 6 months in prison for these offences, and were initially denied bail until May 7th, 1984.

The actual trial was then set for the first date available, in October 1985, but in turn got delayed until September 1986 2 years later.
Jeannette and her brother Brian find a new playing spot in a shack and they accidentally burn it down. I think this book is banned because the children are trapped in the burning shack and the dad does not punish them and he makes sure that no one knows that it is them who set the fire. Also it is not safe for them to be playing with fire, but their father thinks that it is fine. Jeannette’s father, Rex, also taught her how to swim and he taught her by just throwing her into the water and letting her drown. Jeannette was scared and did not understand the concept of this and she started loosing trust in her father.
Another inmate, Ernest Ray Willis, had a case that was freakishly similar to Willingham’s. In 1987, Willis had been convicted of setting a fire, in West Texas, that killed two women. Willis told investigators that he had been sleeping on a friend’s living-room couch and woke up to a house full of smoke. He said that he tried to rouse one of the women, who was sleeping in another room, but the flames and smoke drove him back, and he ran out the front door before the house exploded with flames. Witnesses maintained that Willis had acted suspiciously; he moved his car out of the yard, and didn’t show “any emotion,” as one volunteer firefighter put it.

The unknown suspect then exited the scene with the noted property in an unknown direction by unknown means. Mr. Walford was unable to provide any suspect or witness information.
And if those considered free of criminal involvement may nevertheless be searched or inspected under civil statutes, it is difficult to understand why the Fourth Amendment would prevent entry onto their property to recover evidence of a crime not committed by them but by others. As we understand the structure and language of the Fourth Amendment and our cases expounding it, valid warrants to search property may be issued when it is satisfactorily demonstrated to the magistrate that fruits, instrumentalities, or evidence of crime is located on the premises. The Fourth Amendment has itself struck the balance between privacy and public need, and there is no occasion or justification for a court to revise the Amendment and strike a new balance by denying the search warrant in the circumstances present here and by insisting that the investigation proceed by subpoena duces tecum, whether on the theory that the latter is a less intrusive alternative or
There have been gun purchases where there has been a flaw in the background check system, allowing mentally ill or irresponsible people to obtain guns. For instance, Jared Loughner who was responsible for shooting Representative Gabrielle Giffords and killing six others had a criminal record. He also had documents that
