And I think he was denied to a counsel, which violated his rights, but he should be entitled to one, not sure why they didn’t give him an attorney. But then he shouldn’t get one because why would he need one, if he already committed a crime, andhe got caught committing a new one, which makes no sense as to why get an attorney
He was not consistent with his testimony and later on, admitted that he was lying in the first two interviews to cover up the fact that he was a drug dealer. In Serial, Koenig was questioning the consistently of Wilds testimony by saying that, “In Jay’s statements, while the particulars shifted, the spine of his story did not. Adnan told Jay he was going to do it, Adnan showed him the body, they buried her in Leakin Park, they ditched her car. Jay has been consistent on those point” (Koenig Ep.5). Koenig’s point of view clarified that Wilds should not be considered as a witness for the credible
Facts Jesse Gilbert was charged with armed robbery and the murder of a police officer. Gilbert would not answer questions about the robbery charge without a lawyer, but later answered questions about a robbery in which the robber, supposedly Gilbert, used a handwritten note demanding the money. He gave the police handwriting samples, which were later admitted into evidence. The police also had eyewitnesses identify Gilbert in a line-up that was conducted without notice to his attorney. During the trial, several witnesses identified Gilbert in the courtroom as being a part of several robberies; it could not be determined whether or not identifications in the court room were a result of the illegal line-ups that occurred before the trial.
Aniyah Brooks COR 100/27252 Professor Buffaloe 14 March 2018 The constitutional rights of the suspects in the central park were denied. The Fifth Amendment clearly states that “no person shall be held to answer for a capital, or otherwise infamous crime, unless on a presentable or indictment of a Grand jury… nor shall be compelled in any criminal case to be a witness against himself.” Therefore these rights were violated because the five teen suspects were unaware of these rights and were interrogated wrongfully. At the crime scene no evidence was found, which shows that instead of law enforcement following the right principles of the law they took advantage and tried to diminish the suspects. There are certain procedures that must be followed
Why would the officers discarded their commitment to the city to protect and serve as they swore to do so? Even the presiding judge for the federal courts asked why would a veteran officer throw away his life for cash and camcorder as stated in ("3 KCK officers plead guilty - KCTV5," 2012) There are several possible reasons why these officers decided to steal these items. One reason why the officers stole these items is simply peer pressure I would say all three officers agreed to take the items for their personal gain. Another reason why I believe
The victims were convicted for possession of drugs. The defendants appealed and argued that the officers didn’t stop them for the traffic violation, but to conduct an investigation for a crime the officers had no probable cause for and that it violated the defendant’s fourth amendment rights. The defendants also believed that since they were black that the officers used the minor traffic violation to verify their stereotypical suspicions. Once a vehicle is stopped, it is a police officers duty to obtain consent to search the vehicle when drivers do not object to the officer 's
According to Douglas, one factor that led them away from the parents was that typically when someone is trying to stage a murder, they would not have the mindset to take time to write a three-page ransom note. Next, JonBenet was sexually assaulted and the DNA found in her underwear and from the skin under her fingernails was not a match to either of the parents, her brother, or anyone else that had given samples. Another factor, was that although the media was reporting that the handwriting samples from Patsy proved that she wrote the ransom note. In actuality, similarities between the two were very few. In fact, Patsy’s handwriting was only similar on the lowest possible scale and countless numbers of people could also fall into that category (Douglas, 449).
If the Jim Crow law was plausible, then it will make no sense to arrest Homer Plessy. It was said that after Homer was escorted off the train, the committee hired a private detective with arrest powers to detain Plessy, to ensure he was charged for violating the Separate Car Act. Meaning that they do not want blacks to gain vocals, so they hired a private detective to make sure this situation will never occur
Dr. Mudd’s Punishment Dr. Mudd’s punishment was too harsh for his involvement with John wilkes Booth. Mudd had not known about Booth planning to assassinate the president. In the article it states, “The doctor rose from his bed, assisted Booth, set the fractured bone. But he did not know, he had no reason to suspect, his patient was a fugitive.” Dr. Mudd had no idea of Booth’s plan and if he did he would have been weary of Booth knowing that he could be on the run. But he didn’t.
The officer then lied about the circumstances under which Samuel Dubose was shot, and was not even questioned until video evidence proved otherwise. “This raised hard questions about law enforcement use of force and the other role of race in policing.” The government in general, but especially when it comes to
Due to the inconsistency of the brain an innocent individual can be imprisoned for a crime, he or she never committed. For instance, false memories that can be identified from “The Case Against Adnan Syed” are seen mostly in the responses provided by Dave due to hearsay. Another example is when Laura (Dave’s daughter), Jenn, Jay, and the neighborhood boy completely deny seeing a corpse of a girl (Hae Min Lee) in the trunk of
In Katz v. United States, Charles Kats used a public telephone to phone-in illegal gambling bets. However, while placing these bets, Katz did not realize that the government was listening to his conversation. The FBI could listen to Katz place illegal bets because the agency tapped that specific phone. Following the recorded conversations, Katz was arrested and immediately taken into custody by the FBI. In response to the arrest, Charles Katz said the police had violated his rights as an American citizen; he claimed the FBI disrupted his right of privacy.
Manitowoc County did not abide by the law on the Brendan Dassey murder trial. Investigators pulled Brendan Dassey out of class to question him without his parent 's consent. Investigators coerced Brendan´s statements to make Steven Avery look guilty. Manitowoc County District Attorney Ken Kratz did everything in his power to make Manitowoc County seem like they were abiding by the law when they really did not. “He said I declined to go in with Brendan but I wanted to go in with Brendan, the police wouldn 't let me."
The only information the officers were given was shots fired but, Deputy Murphy’s comment “if I have to go in there myself I’ll charge him with anything I can find” Is over the top and unnecessary. He didn’t know what the situation was I think the officers were right to enter his house to make sure anybody in the house is ok. Since the only information they had was shots fired the officers messed up when he took the mans keys to get into his gun safe that’s when his 4th amendment rights were violated.
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.
