In the late 1960’s and early 1970’s, San Francisco and parts of the Bay Area faced one of the most mass unknown murders that is still unsolved until this day. The murder, who exemplified himself as the “Zodiac,” kept in contact with the police and area newspapers using notes, confirming that he has murdered yet another citizen. Although the police were never able to identify the zodiac, they were able to gather information about him through letters he was sending to the police and newspapers. The zodiac killed up to about 40 people, but the police is estimating about 50, therefore the amount of killings still remains unknown. The zodiac was very creative at his killings, so everytime the police thought they had gained knowledge on his strategies, Zodiac would change his ways and leave the police speechless.

On September 19, 1934, Bruno Hauptmann was arrested and tried for murder on January 2, 1935. In the book “The Case Never Dies”, Gardner states that “there was insufficient evidence to convict him [Bruno]” (Gardner 1) of first degree murder. There were many witnessed that claimed Bruno gave them “ransomed bills” (Schwartz 3) at many businesses. The jury did not believe him when he took the stand and denied any involvement in the kidnapping. Bruno Richard Hauptmann was “put to death in the electric chair” (Crime Museum 2) on April 3, 1936.

Mathieu answered the door, and officers "immediately smelled a strong odor of marijuana," the police report stated. After Mathieu, 20, gave the police his consent to search the apartment, officers discovered a marijuana grinder, a digital scale and 10 bags of high-grade marijuana, including seven in Bryant 's backpack, according to the report.

Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act allows U.S. intelligence agencies to acquire foreign intelligence information by monitoring foreign persons in the USA and abroad. This act ensures that intelligence agencies can respond in time to terminate a security threat. The most important part of this act, the Section 702 forbids deliberate monitoring of US citizens and their communication. Technically NSA has been violating this act ever since it has been enacted in 2008 because, as we know, they have been monitoring all US citizenry. NSA hides the fact that they are monitoring on US citizens without the warrant as they find some connection between the person monitored and some illegal activity to justify their monitoring.
Boston Marathon bombing suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev was not immediately informed of his Miranda rights, although he was questioned by police. Under the public-safety exception to the law, law enforcement may question a suspect without invoking Miranda if the police have credible reason to believe the suspect may have information about an imminent threat to public safety. Once he was read his Miranda rights, police said Tsarnaev stopped answering questions (Imbriano, 2013). Conclusion Miranda v. Arizona, although nearly 50 years old, stands as one of the most well-known and important Supreme Court rulings. The law, which attempts to balance the rights of the individual with the ability of law enforcement to solve crimes and keep the public safe, has been challenged, upheld, revised, and challenged again through the years.
As the New York Times reported - ''For more than half an hour 38 respectable, law-abiding citizens in Queens watched a killer stalk and stab a woman in three separate attacks in Kew Gardens.” (Nytimes.com, 2014). Although it was primarily reported that thirty-eight people witnessed these violent attacks, this figure was later lessened to a dozen. These people had only witnessed parts of the attack and were unaware of what was truly happening. Two people, Joseph Fink and Karl Ross, independently watched this crime happen and did nothing. Fink saw the first stabbing from across the street, understood what was taking place yet stayed in the building’s lobby unresponsive.

As was stated before, we see that Jay lied about places where he was when Adnan called him, where he actually saw Hae’s body first in his two interviews. It is unclear where Jay was from 12:30 to 3:30 until he gets a call from Adnan. According to what Jay said he was at Jenn’s house, but the timeline does not line up with Jenn’s timeline. Also, their stories do not match. He lied about where Hae’s car was ditched and if he helped Adnan to buried Hae’s body or not.
