Racial profiling and law enforcement

...Reasonable suspicion or reasonable doubt is a word an officer might use believing their suspect may have been armed, or a threat to society. Though the officer must be held accountable for the reasons he or she selected to approach the minority. The monumental Supreme Court case Terry vs. Ohio helped to shed tremendous light on the matter. The case pretty much made racial profiling harder to conduct for police. A law was passed because of this case which it made officers have to retain a search ...

Reward or punishment

...For example, as the investigation was occurring “the police said they couldn't find a "Carlos Hernandez" [with a criminal record] despite his long rap sheet.” There was also a bloody foot print outside the store which was never processed. The judge was influenced by his ethnicity and appearance. He looked like the criminal, therefore for the judge, he was the criminal.

Evaluate the role of the supreme court

...However, it was not, but the states took this move to the right by the Supreme Court, as an opportunity to regulate abortions far more closely.

The rights and Civil liberties of US citi...

Effectiveness of juvenile justice

...Overall juvenile justice law, as assessed in the previous section, promotes fairness, equality and justice. The common law aims for rehabilitation of offenders, but will not hide from more serious sentencing options, such as detention.

For the system to be most effective, a balance must be achieved between the offender and sentencing options, remaini...

Lis Pendens

...This paper reviews the doctrine of lis pendens under Section 52 of TPA. It is evident from the analysis of the doctrine that the basis of the doctrine lies in public policy considerations and the expediency to ensure finality of litigation.

The doctrine demonstrates a classic case wherein individual rights of parties are rend...


...Those who favor snitching, do so because it has always been an accepted rule. Snitching has become what some would call a “sport”; a person never has to expect responsibility for their own actions because, it is easier to snitch and walk free rather than taking reasonability for ones actions. In Maxwell’s essay Start Snitching he states that if people snitch this will reduce the number of black on black deaths, and make the communities a better place to live (700). Maxwell also says out of...

Should Juveniles be tried as adults?

Not only would theses families have more disposable income – freedom to spend - but also potentially more freedom of safety from these d...

Argumentative Essay against Capital Punishment

...Finally, a society that values life does not intentionally kill people. The truth is that capital punishment is a traumatic case of homicide that has been approved by the government.
