As you can see from the objection letter, I need you to describe everything opposite, diminish its harshness and give the DA nothing to onslaught me as they have done prior—attack that objection letter Counsel, please! ***I remember I did gave a statement that says I participated in the burglaries, but that was the cops sweet talked me with cigarettes and phone calls after a 4 hours ride (Cairo, Illinois to Cook & Kankakee Counties). I was naïve and thoughts that if I give what they want to hear, they would drop the charges. Needless to say, I DID NOT enter the residences but was only served as a lookout while Ryan & the third guy pull the heists*** The prior petition I did not know the need to include another arrest that is not in the state of Illinois. Here you have it: Many arrest between ages of 13-17 (truancy, smoking, alcohol, runaway [things that kid
Why doesn 't our government seem to care? To answer the questions of if our government provides enough support to those suffering from mental health condition we should analyze our government versus all the others, health organizations, mental health conditions, and health standards, we should also inquire information about whether the government has better things to do. Weak individuals with mental illnesses are shunned because of the stigmas we have adapted. We would throw those with mental illnesses into a cell and never give them hope to live. We thought that they couldn 't think for themselves.
The FBI investigated but the final charges did not go as expected because they lack evidence.. There had been some efforts to hide facts of Watergate tapping: documents were destroyed, staffs were under pressure to stay away from press, staffs were persuaded to give certain answers to FBI, and staffs possessed critical information were promoted after Watergate. President Richard Nixon assured the public that the White House had no involvement with this particular incident. His use of the words “particular incident” led the reporters to look further into their investigation. Woodward and Bernstein uncovered indecent campaign strategies to undercut the Democratic Party by using unlawful methods such as threats, phone tapping and spying.
In Turner v. Safley (1987), the Supreme Court ruled in favor of restricting prisoners Constitutional rights. According to the ruling, the restriction of rights is Constitution if “reasonably related to legitimate penological [i.e. safety] interests.” Jeffs communicates sermons and regulations from prison, and limiting the community between Jeffs and the hierarchy of Short Creek attempts to severe ties between Jeffs and the FLDS. Satinder Singh, an ACLU attorney, said “…prisoners can limit communication, including mail and visits….However, the prison can’t suppress Jeffs free speech rights just because it doesn’t like what he has to say (Singh).” While Jeffs ideologies continue to dictate the infrastructure of Short Creek, minimizing communication enhances the chances of stopping the theocratic rule in Short Creek. Dr. Tarby after encountering
In this case, Augusta State University counseling student Jennifer Keeton expressed desires to refuse treatment of LGBT patients and subject them to conversion therapy, and then refused to go through a remediation course required by the university. Keeton was then dismissed, and the court case ruled that the university she was at did not violate her First Amendment rights (Lambda Legal). Keeton was dismissed because of her refusal to set aside her personal beliefs, and her refusal to counsel LGBT clients. Barbara Herlihy explains, "the faculty relied on professional codes of ethics and accreditation standards in determining that the students were engaging in unacceptable discriminatory behavior” (pg. 151).
In their opinion piece published in the New York Times, Miriam Gleckman-Krut and Nicole Bedera, two students from University of Michigan, claim that students being accused of sexual assault on-campus should not be the ones providing the definition of sexual assault because more victims will stay silent. Their article tackles the research question “how does allowing the accused to define sexual assault affect the victim?”. The piece was written in response to Betsy DeVos, Secretary of Education, who claimed that former President Obama’s policies on on-campus rape stripped the accused of their liberties because less evidence was required from the victims, who often struggle to create concreate evidence due to trauma or difficulty remembering.
Because it was illegal to refuse to pay taxes owed to the government, Thoreau was put in jail. Later, his tax was paid by one of his relatives and he was released. After he got out, he wrote an essay “Civil Disobedience” which explained why it is sometimes important to refuse to follow a law if it’s unjust. Years later, a minister named Martin Luther King began his journey to nonviolent fight. The United States’ government is required to protect its citizens’ rights.
A huge problem across the nation is that offenders are returning to prison after previously being convicted of a crime. This may not seem like a big deal, but this shows that our prisons are failing us on the one thing the system promises to do, which is to keep us safe. Prison is supposed to be a place where we use deterrence to try and keep people from doing illegal things, but obviously it is not working. Since recidivism is such a huge issue, we need to find the issue and figure out how to resolve it to better our country and our people. First, let’s discuss the economic aspect of recidivism.
This was achieved by not only denying the accused the right to counsel but also by hindering defence witnesses. The accused was not allowed to subpoena unwilling witnesses (Kelly, Karlin, & Wegemer, 2011, p. 86.). There were even situations in which the courts declined to listen to defence witnesses who were ready to testify. Restrictions on notice and preparation To start with, most criminal defendants were put in prison pending trial, which left them with no time to prepare for trial (Helmholz, 1997, p. 90).
The inner moral compulsion to obey is what drives most social organizations. Sykes (2007) described several structural defects that occurred in the New Jersey State prison. Sykes (2007) argues that power in prison is not based on authority therefore prison officials have to find other means to get prisoners to abide by the rules and regulations. The ability to use force to maintain order on a large scale in the prison is an illusion. According to Sykes (2007), Certain privileges such mailing and visiting, personal possessions, time-off for good behavior etc.
As for the discrimination claim, the court is to proceed with finding the resultant damages. 2. Violating the USERRA The Metro Government offered reemployment to Petty, but did not reinstate him to his former role as patrol sergeant, or a substantially equivalent position. When rehired, Petty was given a desk position where he ended up answering phones and filing reports. Petty also claims that the Metro Government delayed rehiring him by “subjecting him to the department’s return-to-work process.” (Walsh, p. 402, 2014) Lastly the Metro restricted Petty from accepting off duty positions during his
In Sick From Freedom, Downs explains how the United States was not prepared for the emancipation of slaves and in that same respect the United States needs to be cautious in the way it attempts to handle mass incarceration. For example, if there is a mass exodus of non-violent criminals from state prisons these people would be thrusted back into society without being prepared for life on the
