He called for backup and told them to wait until he had more insight on what happened at the convenience store. While Graham was waiting for officer Connor to come back, he got out of the car, ran around the car twice and passed out by the car. Officer Connor's backup arrived on scene to help officer Connor apprehend Berry and Graham while Berry was pleading for them to help Graham. The officers rejected his cry for help while placing Graham's face down on the hood of the car. Graham asked the police officers to check his wallet for his diabetic decal.
The Majority of the court 's decision includes McLachlin C.J. and Bastarache, Deschamps, Abella, Charron and Rothstein JJ. The court had to decide in this case whether the seriousness of an offence or knowing that one might be a threat to public safety can be a justification to stop anyone without having solid evidence against them. The court stated that both Mr. Clayton and Mr. Farmer were guilty of carrying concealed weapons in a public place. The police had the right to search them even though their car didn’t match the description described by the 911 caller because the officers have to be consistent with their duty towards public safety and act in accordance to the seriousness of the

The cop got out his car, walked up to Gabe’s car and asked him if he knew why he is being pulled over. Gabe gets an itch on his leg, he reached down to scratch it and the officer thinks he’s reaching for a gun. He instantly pulled out his gun and dragged Gabe out the car, shoved him on the ground and beat him. Stories like this happen every day in America, it needs to stop for three reasons: Racism, innocent children are dying and America looks bad to the rest of the world.
Weird law suits and tickets occur throughout the nation every day and each can be used as a warning story.

Case Citation: Maryland v. Pringle 540 U.S. 366 (2003) Parties: State of Maryland, Petitioner / Appellant Joseph Jermaine Pringle, Defendant / Appellee Facts: On the morning of August 7th, 1999 at 3:16 a.m., a Baltimore Police Officer conducted a stop on a passenger car for speeding. As the officer approached the car he noticed it was occupied by three males one of which was the respondent, Joseph Jermaine Pringle located in the front passenger seat. As the driver retrieved the vehicle’s proof of registration for the glove compartment located in front of Pringle, the officer noticed what appeared to be a large amount of currency rolled up in the glove compartment in plain view. After obtaining the driver’s license and registration, the police officer went back to his patrol car and conducted a check for warrants and prior traffic violations. The driver/owner of the vehicle was Donte Partlow and
As he waited to be called, he was thinking about what he was going to do. All kinds of things about what they expected him to do came to his mind After what seem like forever, the DMV staff finally called James up to take his test. It was finally time for him to drive! When he got in the car the DVM staff told him to check his mirror. James checked his mirror, put the car in gear, and pulled out.
This case is a continuation of the original. On March 30, 1981 around the time of two thirty in the afternoon John Hinckley Jr. shot at current President Ronald Reagan as he left a Hilton Hotel in Washington D.C after a conference. Hinckley did not directly injure president Regan from a gunshot but seriously damaged the president from a bullet ricochet off the presidential limo which struck the president in the chest. Aside from the president being wounded, Hinckley wounded a police officer named Tom Delahanty, secret service agent Tim McCarthy and white house press secretary and Ronald Regan’s
Since due process is how we define the order and the correct way of doing things, this is how it applies: In the Terry versus Ohio case, Terry believe that officers should have probable cause before the officer was able to stop and frisk individuals. Under the Fourth Amendment, officers have the right to stop and frisk without probable cause, meaning the process McFadden used was correct. On the other hand, in Miranda versus Arizona, Miranda had not been informed of his right to remain silent before giving his confession of committing the crimes he had been accused of. In turn his confession was not valid. If the officers had used the correct process and made Miranda aware of his right to remain silent, his confession could have been used in trial.
The "actual control" clause indicates situations when a car is parked and running, parked and stalled, or is capable of being driven at any time by an intoxicated person. However, R.v. Boudreault in 2012 set a test for the rule of law which provided that the Actus Reus is not enough to charge someone, one must also have a guilty mind (Mens Rea). Which means, there must be enough evidence for the prosecutors to show that the accused person intended the act. Although, the officer had a reasonable suspicion, there is just not enough evidence to convict Noway.
On April 12, 2015, Freddie Carlos Gray Jr, a 25-year-old African-American man, was arrested by the Baltimore Police Department for an illegal switchblade. While being transported to the local police station, in a police van, Gray fell into a state of "extreme lethargy" and was taken to a trauma center. Gray passed on April 19, 2015; his demise was due to injuries to his spinal rope. On April 21, 2015, pending an examination of the occurrence, six Baltimore cops were incidentally suspended with pay. The six officers accused of Gray 's death are Caesar Goodman, Garret Miller, Edward Nero, William Porter, Lieutenant Brian Rice and Sargent Alicia White.
Richard Chilton could have possibly defended Terry about the concealed weapons just to prove to the court on how it started. The court argued on Terry’s case and on McFadden’s case to hear both sides about the weapons and conducting the pat down searches as not a violation from the
So our opposition clearly wants to make the situation worse by ignorantly indicting police officers without a grand jury? This proposition means that potential defendants are not present during grand jury proceedings and neither are their lawyers. The prosecutor gives the jurors a "bill" of charges, and then presents evidence, including witnesses, in order to obtain an indictment. These proceedings are secret, but transcripts for the proceeding may be obtained after the fact. Prosecutors like grand juries because they function like a "test" trial and enable prosecutors to see how the evidence will be received by jurors.
