After a 2 hour interrogation he was found guilty of kidnapping and rape. He confessed all of this without being read his rights.

In 2013, the Supreme Court case Moncrieffe v. Holder refuses a Board of Immigration Appeals to removal from the United States of a lawful permanent resident based on a long term criminal conviction related to sole possession of small amounts of marijuana. The case finally made it all the way to the Supreme Court, which is considered a rather technical question of the interpretation of the U.S Immigration laws. Local police departments have long been accused of profiling Hispanic, African-Americans, and other minorities of race in law enforcement activities, including run of the mill traffic stop. Critics fear that immigration enforcement by state and local authorities will lead to increase of racism. Many Americans have shown concerns with the implementation of racist discrimination of the U.S immigration laws by state police agencies and local authorities.

The verdict was decided 64 days later, on March 18, 1963. On an unanimous vote, the Supreme Court ruled in Gideon’s favor. He was given another trial and the charges were acquitted. His efforts against this issue led to it being made known that no matter the crime, each and every person must be provided a lawyer if they cannot afford one themselves. “If an obscure Florida convict named Clarence Earl Gideon had not sat down in his prison cell with a pencil and paper to write a letter to the Supreme Court, and if the Court had not taken the trouble to look for merit in that one crude petition ... the vast machinery of American law would have gone on functioning undisturbed.
Riley v. California in 2014 was a case in which the United States Supreme Court argued whether the police has the right to search and seize digital content without a warrant, from individuals who have been arrested. So, the main question of the case was whether the evidence admitted at trial from Riley’s cell phone violated his Fourth Amendment right. The court ruled, by a unanimous vote that a warrantless cell phone search during an arrest is unconstitutional. On August 22, 2009, the police stopped David Leon Riley for driving with an expired registration tag. Then, the officer proceeded to impound Riley’s car because he was driving with a suspended license.
Introduction "Justice doesn 't mean the bad guy goes to jail. It just means someone pays for the crime" (LaGravenese, 2007). This quote summarizes Robert Mayer 's The Dreams of Ada perfectly. Mayer 's book follows the true story of the investigation into, arrest, and trials of Karl Fontenot and Tommy Ward for the kidnapping and murder of Denice Haraway. In the end the two are convicted, although all evidence suggests otherwise.
Race is not a choice, just as many other things society has decided to label are not a choice. I have had friends and family attacked and unfairly searched because officers assumed they had contraband or did something illegal. I had a friend named Gerome whose car was raided by police because they thought he might have drugs, my friend Kennedys brother was shot and killed in front of their house, and rather than doing a full investigation they said it was gang violence and closed the case. If this were a caucasian child who was shot in front of their house, in front of family, and the neighborhood, there would have been much further and thorough investigation. it is completely invalid to think or simply suggest that racial profiling does not exist

In the case of United States v. Bonds, 12 F.3d 540 (6th Cir. 1993), defendant John Ray Bonds was accused of killing a man during a late night shooting. The basis for his appeal was to suppress the DNA evidence because “at that time the FBI test results had not yet been published in a peer review journal explaining the FBI 's methods and offering data to support the results” (United States v. Bonds, 1993). The defendant also believed different methods for DNA analysis could have provided accurate results rather than a 1 in 35000 probability for the DNA match. The purpose of the case was to determine whether the court made a mistake in admitting DNA evidence in the trial.
Foster alleged that the prosecution violated constitutional provisions of due process through racial discrimination similar to the Batson v. Kentucky case (Bright, 2015, p. 2). The trial court concluded that this case presented a prima facie, or “at first look,” use of racial discrimination. Focus then shifted to the prosecution’s ability to justify the four strikes as prescribed in the three-step process. The prosecutor returned with forty reasons for the strikes and the trial court overruled the Batson objection. Subsequently, Foster was tried before an all-white jury, convicted of murder, and sentenced to death (Bright, 2015, p. 3).

Miranda v. Arizona effectively opened the eyes of civilians and government officials alike by forcing the police to inform accused criminals of their constitutional rights. The four cases involved shone light onto the issue of flaws in the law enforcement system. Despite being completely and utterly guilty, Miranda escaped a sentence by using imperfections within the system. In 1963 an 18-year-old girl is kidnapped and raped and afterward she provided a description of the man which police later identified as Ernesto Miranda. When police arrested Miranda, they failed to inform him of his Fifth Amendment and Sixth Amendment rights before the interrogation.
