A FBI study indicated that since 1989, DNA evidence excluded the primary suspect in 25% of sexual assault cases. Sexual assault cases are of really high importance and happen worldwide, and DNA evidence makes it hard for the assaulter to deny his/her actions. This is due to the traceable DNA, a person would inject in his/her victim after sexual intercourse is conducted. DNA could be a revolutionary turning point in the world of crime solving, because of its durability in this world, which could last for decades, explaining many unsolved mysteries that occurred in the
Oswald is innocent, is when one of Spence’s witnesses, Paul O’Connor, came to give his testimony on what he saw. He and another gentleman were supposed to take the President’s brain out and preserve it in formaldehyde, but was unable to because there was no brain. He said that when they received the President’s body, they were to take out the brain, but when they got the body there was only a massive hole in his head with only about half a handful of brain matter. There is a document written about that part of the autopsy and it says that the brain was taken out and preserved in formaldehyde, but Paul said that when they had received the cadaver that there was no brain. Paul was also ordered by the U.S. Military to stay quiet about it not say
To add to that O.J. had cuts on his hand the day after the murder. The defense tried to argue that he cut himself while retrieving a phone from his Bronco, but this could have only resulted from accidently cutting himself while in the middle of relentlessly stabbing Nicole and Ronald.
At her trail, detective Dennis Chapmen testified that finger prints on a pill bottle found at the crime scene after a level one basic comparison matched her prints. The detective did this despite lacking any training in conducting latent print comparisons. Regardless, he testified anyway. This was the only evidence against Canen and she was convicted and sentenced to 55 years in prison. After the conviction an attorney who believed that Canen was innocent took on the case.
Clearly, had the CIA and FBI shared information with each other, connected the dots on known terrorist members, and subsequently gave that information to local law enforcement the attacks of September 11, 2001 may have been preventable. I am most certain that the families of the 2,752 people that died on that day would love nothing more than to see increase communication between federal agencies and local law enforcement. Fortunately, the results and recommendations of the 9/11 commission report may tremendous improvements in the communication for these law enforcement professionals (The 9/11 Commission Report, 2002). Some of those improvements included adding additional analysts to sort through the enormous amounts of intelligence, and reducing communication barriers between local and federal law enforcement agencies (The 9/11 Commission Report, 2002). Another area of opportunity included revamping the technology of communication via police radios.
In combination with highlighting and coding videos, attorneys use expert witnesses to “teach” the jury how to look at events being shown, and see the information that best supports the party’s claims; this is what Stuart (2011) called an “ethnography of seeing”. This can be easily illustrated by providing the example of how this happened in the first Rodney King trial. The expert witness used by defense, Sergeant Charles Duke, explained the officers’ use of force as justified and not excessive. This view achieved supremacy among the jury because the expert’s vocabulary use in describing the events drew upon practices that were rooted within the policing institution. He explained that the officers’ actions against King were guided by what was
After reading this journal and reviewing the statistics stated it clearly shows no correlation of the two. By seeing these results it makes you wonder what else then can be done to lower the rates of gun control. This journal reflects great of my thesis statement because it is specifically talking about the correlation between crimes involving guns and the strength of gun control laws in
Dahmer is known to engage in sexual activities with the corpses and save body parts as trophies. When he is finally caught and arrested, he attends his trial. Dahmer 's plea stating he is not guilty be reason of insanity would be denied, however (Biography.com Editors). Though the psychologist in this case has lost against the prosecution, many believe that the decision to put him in a more monitored prison is made strictly out of fear. As a forensic psychologist, you will be able to get into Dahmer 's mind and decide for yourself if he is insane.
The Fourth Amendment was created in response to the British practice of issuing a general warrant—warrants that were not limited in scope. The ultimate check that the Amendment places on law enforcement is one of “reasonableness.” This creates two broad categories of searches: searches that would be unreasonable without a warrant and searches that do not require a warrant. For example, warrants are not relevant in the context of school administration. However, warrants have historically always been required in the course of ordinary law enforcement.”
