Wesby was a very interesting case, that was just recently decided. I agree with the judges that for one there was no lawful arrest made and but I strongly disagree that there was not probable cause to make an arrest and lastly, I agree that the officers do have qualified immunity in this case. The officers made an unlawful arrest because they lacked evidence to charge the party goers with unlawful arrest. This is because the party goers did not know they were not supposed to be there at that time. The Court case states that Peaches was the supposed tenant of the house and gave the party goers permission to be there and that is why they were all there.
The appellate court however, determined that he was within the scope of his employment and this cannot be sued personally. Reasoning: FRIEDLANDER, Judge stated he believed the trial court correctly concluded that the allegation of negligence upon which the Bushongs’ action is premised was against a government employee acting within the scope of his employment. Judge Friedlander quoted Ind. Code Ann. § 34-13-3-5(a) prohibits a lawsuit against a public employee for actions committed while the employee was acting within the scope of employment, for his reasoning to dissent or reverse judgement.
Can the investors who put their money in Madoff’s funds without any due diligence, often on the basis of a tip from a friend or a ‘friend of a friend,’ really be considered victims in this case? Why or why not? The investors who put their money in Madoff’s funds are victims in this case. Even though they were dumb and naïve, they were still robbed of their money. If a person walking at night in a bad neighborhood still is a victim too.
In order to confirm this Judge Danforth calls Elizabeth Proctor to testify in court, in which she lies, as a result Danforth says “She spoke nothing of lechery, and this man has lied” (Miller 114). In this situation, Reverend Hale voices his concern by saying that it is a natural for her to lie in order to save her husband’s name (Miller 114). Here, Judge Danforth refuses to listen to Reverend Hale and inconsiderately dismisses his logical argument that given the circumstances a wife would lie to save their husband’s
He said: "As long as these institutions remain intact, any real public disaster would not have happened." Hamilton did exactly what a social monetary and fiscal authorities in the financial panic should be doing. His such a strict contingency plan effectively prevent the panic, so it helped not to develop into uncontrollable proportions. Ensure that the stock market will not adversely affect the long-term crisis on the US economy. Although there still were other individual speculators can not avoid suffered a devastating
Tom Robinson’s trial is a prime example of this. The case was lost before the trial even began, and Tom, an innocent man, was not given a fair chance at freedom. In the South, women and black men were never selected to sit on juries, this is proven historically using the case of the Scottsboro Boys. In the Scottsboro Boys trial, no men of color were brought in for jury selection, and the papers had actually been tampered with after the first trial to try and avoid the involvement of the Supreme Court. Already, Robinson did not have a jury of his peers, as guaranteed by the Constitution just like the Scottsboro Boys.
I am no Sarah Good or Tituba, I am John Proctor! You will not use me! It is no part of salvation that you should use me!” (The Crucible Act IV Quotes) John could not live knowing these innocent women died to keep their goodness as he also wished to do after his affair. "my honesty is broke, Elizabeth; I am no good man. Nothing's spoiled by giving them this lie that were not rotten long before.” (The
Opposingly, “Harrison Bergeron” did not include adequate details of the handicaps worn by any of the government officials; however, Tuttle’s film illustrates an authentic society because of the details conscientiously added. Another example of fraudulent government is through the attempted censorship of Harrison’s speech and assassination. The handicapper general does not want the viewers to be motivated by his words or astonished by the action she was about to commit. In comparison to the short story, only one circumstance of censorship was presented, and it was not used to the extent of protecting Diana Moon Glampers’ reputation as it was to cease the chance of future rebellion. Diana’s notoriety
The world did not pry because they did not want to get involved. When Elie’s father said: “The world? The world is not interested in us’,” he was hinting towards willful ignorance. They have an idea but do not want to fully know because if they knew, then they would have to get involved. Another example was when Oprah got the Cecil B. deMille award, she gave an acceptance speech.
They are not, and never have been, intended to make anyone suffer,"' (Pros 21). People shouldn't have the fate of their life decided by someone else, they should have a full chance to recover from any injury. Also, these machines and doctors that keep them on devices such as life support, are trying to save their lives not end them. Firstly, George and Lennie couldn't run away because they were surrounded by Curley and his men, they just hadn't been seen yet. At the same time, George didn't commit murder; Lennie didn't give his true consent because they didn't have the time.
