Bell, a retired cruiserweight champion, who defeated Jean-Marc Mormeck for the championship on January 7, 2006. Norma Bell, the mother, responded to an interview with Channel 2 Action News saying how she felt relieved that criminal law had made two arrests. She says that she wants to understand the thought process of the suspect. In addition to this robbery, Davis is believed to be responsible for other robberies in East Point and Clayton County. With the recent success in the case, they can bring those responsible to justice.
Others may claim that DNA evidence isn’t sufficient to convict someone for a crime or prove others innocent. But, DNA evidence from crime scenes has helped solve many more cases and found the criminals than those cases where people were wrongly convicted. Penal code 1405 gives convicted felons the chance to submit a written motion to the court to request forensic DNA testing. Penal code 1405 should remain a law because it gives incarcerated
Jay had several inconsistencies, some are major, and some, perhaps minor. The ones that stands out the most are appalling, such as the fact that he openingly stated to police and jury that he will lie avoiding criminal punishment. In one occasion with the police, he said Adnan “knows I sold drugs… he could get me locked up for that.” In further interviews, there are times when he would say Adnan asked him one day ago, same day, and even four to five days ago to help assist him in such murder. When asked where Adnan killed Hae, there were several different responses, including Best Buy, Woodlawn Public Library, and Patapsco State Park, which haven’t been brought up since. Time buried in Leakin Park: 7 pm in first interviews and trial testimony, and midnight in a recent interview.
While reading I would often have to put the book down and think about how shady this whole operation was, and how genius Woodward and Bernstein were for figuring out various leads and clues. The way this book is written the reader feels as if they are right there with the reporters investigating. The whole scene when Bernstein flies to Miami to investigate one the burglar’s phone records and an influx of money in his bank account, and the reader finds out that this money was from donations for Nixon’s campaign, makes the reader feel disgusted with American politics. Both men provide so much information in this book about exactly how Watergate happened and who was involved, it made me realize how a man who was elected to run this country honestly and with integrity, was so twisted and a criminal. The authors perfectly capture the severity of this scandal and how it truly is one of the shadiest and biggest political scandals to ever occur in our nation’s history.
The post-1980’s time, McIntosh talks about how our hierarchies in society are interlocking and although some deny the truth of white privilege, it is alive. Acknowledging white privilege is admitting advantage in society over minorities. Although times are changing, there are two examples of white privilege I have witnessed first-hand. Driving through Albuquerque, New Mexico I was pulled over with my brother who looks like hippy from the woods for an expired tag. I was taken out of the car and back to the officer when he asked if there were drugs in the car because he could smell them, shortly after he questioned my brother who handed him two joints and HTC pills.
He wants the people to notice and realize injustice the law is. However, there is nothing wrong with fighting against something that feels unjust, but fighting sometimes may lead to destruction within the public. The law shouldn’t be based off of just the people’s opinions but also what the government think is best. It’s acceptable to do what is right but many are afraid to stand up to the the government due to the fact that they have more power. Therefore, people may see going against an unjust law as something to avoid because of the aftereffect they will be having to face.
If guns are banned the government will take innocent civilian guns away, because they have them registered in their names. However, that is going to put our lives in more danger because a lot criminal’s that have guns would not have theirs taken. Most criminals would not get their guns taken away because more than likely they are not registered and wouldn’t be found by the government. They would continue to cause crime and kill
“Two of the other suspects made deals with the prosecutor, pleading guilty to second-degree murder and naming Andy as the triggerman,” but that was not the reason why he was convicted, but for being part of a carjacking at the time of Lohrmeyer’s murder. He got sentenced to life without parole. The decision of whether young criminals should be tried in juvenile courts or adult courts has created a lot of controversy throughout the years. Juveniles should be tried as juveniles. Being tried according to their age is fairer.
Religion discrimination involves treating an individual adversely because of their religious beliefs. When it comes to religious beliefs, people tend to discriminate other people. Sadly, there are people going through harassment for not believing what others believe. It occurs to be illegal to harass a person who has a different opinion than another. Although, the law does not forbid teasing, or curt comments, harassment actually becomes illegal when it happens constantly to the point where it creates an unfriendly work environment.
But there is also the problem that if the NSA become completely transparent, the terrorist and other people the NSA is trying to catch, will have more knowledge as how to not get caught, which would just make the NSA ineffective. Basically the people have to decide whether they want a government that catches terrorists or one that always protects their freedoms. Most parts of the world would rather have a government that catches terrorists and keeps them safe, but unlike these countries, America (excuse my American exceptionalism) has an amendment for their constitution that bans unreasonable search and seizures. The NSA is in a difficult position because it must weigh how transparent they can be to appease the population with how much secrecy they need to function
violent or nonviolent (1). It is hard to figure out who is a violent criminal due to the way they were charged under the justice system. There is no way of showing whether or not violence was used while they were dealing or drug using. These statistics prove that by focusing on other resolutions for non-violent crimes, the incarceration rates could be reduced. Along with rehabilitation for drug offenders, there is also a need for proper rehabilitation of mentally ill patients and prisoners to keep them from relapsing and ending up back in the system.
