Instead of using the interview to discover the truth, the interrogators specifically sought out a confession from the suspect. They began the interrogation with the presumption that Brenton Butler was guilty.

The reason Congress is given this ability is because Congress has assumed the position in order to better do its job. In many cases the Supreme Court has had to decide whether the interference of Congressional actions were constitutional, in the majority of these court cases the outcome has benefited the federal government. For instance, the case over McCulloch v. Maryland Chief Justice, John Marshall, interpreted the Necessary and Proper Clause, by conveying that the federal government (Congress) has the ability, under Necessary and Proper clause “to find the great powers, to lay and collect taxes; to borrow money; to regulate commerce; to declare and conduct a war; and to raise and support armies and navies. The sword and the purse, all the external relations, and no inconsiderable portion of the industry of the nation are entrusted to its Government.”
In 2009, Alonzo King, Jr. was arrested for violent assault charges and while in custody, the police took his DNA and logged into the Maryland DNA Database. His DNA was matched to the DNA in an unsolved rape case. The Maryland DNA Collection Act (MDCA) allows police officers to collect DNA samples of people under arrest for violent crimes or attempted violent crimes. However, in court, King appealed to have the conviction because the MDCA was against his IV amendment rights because his DNA was taken without a search warrant. The Maryland Court of Appeals reversed the conviction stating that the MDCA was infact unconstitutional, because King’s expectation of privacy was greater than the interest of Maryland in using DNA samples for the purpose of identification.
Clarence Earl Gideon was an indigent living in Florida who was accused of breaking into the Bay Harbor Poolroom in Panama City, Florida with the intention to commit petty larceny. He had to represent himself at trial since he was poor and Florida did not provide state-funded attorneys for indigents. Once the case was taken up by the Supreme Court, it was affirmed by unanimous decision that anyone had a right to counsel. In Betts v. Brady which Gideon’s case overturned, Betts was an indigent accused of robbery who, when he asked for counsel at his trial, was denied. He later appealed his case up the court system and eventually to the Supreme Court on the grounds that, due to such actions, he had been held illegally.

When the writers came up with the rules for a new government they wanted democracy to be a part of it.

Both documents limited the power that the central government had on the states and its people.
