Freedom, Federalism and the 1st amendment | Gov & Law Dani H | Scoop.it
A proper application of federalism could save the values of the First Amendment and the freedom of Jana Winter.

Via Joe Russo
Danielle Hucke's insight:

Did Jana winters end up having to serve time for telling the truth? I'ddon't  really know what side I agree with, like Colorado or New York. But I feel like Jana winters does have rights and I feel she followed all rights by telling the truth.

naknuts37's curator insight, April 16, 11:59 AM

This article talks about federalism and freedom under the First Amendment. Why this article relates to Gov and Law is because our government is a federalist government. The article talks about a news reporter from New York who was to be tried for supposedly breaking a law in Colorado having to do with a murder case. The author believes that a proper application of federalism could save the values of the First Amendment and the freedom of the writer. 

Brian Bertram's curator insight, April 16, 11:25 PM

This article talks about federelism in the United States.  It made a great point about how the government did not create the states, the states created the government.  This is true since the first 13 states got together and wrote the constitution. This document set up the foundation for the government we know today.

khedlu17's curator insight, April 17, 9:15 AM

In response to naknuts37:

Federalism is defined as the constitutional recognition of the legal origins of the US as a union of independent states. How does federalism save the value of the First Amendment? How is our government like a federalist government?

This is a tough decision to make for the court. Many would agree with the fact that phones are apart of our private lives, which I agree with. But I can also see where if they are allowed to search without a search warrant they could even more crimes or more evidence. does it really violate the 4th amendment?

because we have no privacy and everyone seems to know everything.
Brian Bertram's comment, May 3, 10:05 AM
True, random searches may violate some rights, but in the long run they could actually be saving lives. They might discover a bomb that the sensors didn't detect or some illegal drug that could kill someone. In the end, the safety of the public is more important to me.

I feel like they have done a lot in the past on laws for human trafficking but now a days people seem to just turn their heads away from this sick act. I don't agree that child that are forced to be prostitutes and put in the jail. Those kids, teenagers are victims not criminals. Has that law been changed since this article was made?

I am not sure how the law has been changed, but it is sad to see children put on the streets. I think we needed to do more about this problem and find an end to it. Like you said they are victims not criminals.
Katelynn Krook's comment, February 17, 1:19 PM
I don't know if the law has been changed or not, but you guys made great points. Children/ teenagers can't help their family situation, so they shouldn't be forced to things they do not have any intentions in doing. They shouldn't be punished. There are so many things we can do to help these children so they won't be endangered anymore.

Constitutional Revolution: The Story of Iceland | National Collective

Constitutional Revolution: The Story of Iceland | National Collective | Gov & Law Dani H | Scoop.it

An important case study of constitutional construction to consider is that of Iceland, especially from 2008 till present. There are four reasons why useful comparisons can be drawn from the Icelandic experience: 1) Iceland, like Scotland, is a Western, liberal democracy – and therefore shares a common political, philosophical and social heritage; 2) Iceland, as of 2008, was at a point of political and social crisis; 3) Participation of citizens (civic republicanism) was at the forefront of constructing, reviewing and ratifying the new Icelandic Constitution; and 4) This process was praised both internally and externally of Iceland as an example of Constitutional innovation of relevance to other political communities.

The way the constitution was formed was defiantly intriguing. They developed democratic and citizen helped develop laws to follow. I learn a lot about how a constitution starts that I didn't know before.

Danielle Hucke's insight:

I feel that as long as the protesters do not disturb teenagers with hurtful words and degrading things they should be able to discus other alternatives for the young girls other than abortion as long as the girls are willing to talk. How many states have 'bubble zones'?

The freedom of protesting should be protected. If someone is doing something that is going to help their life because they can't take care if a baby or because they were raped, they can do what they want. But protesting should be allowed.
Abigail Beinborn's curator insight, May 21, 12:03 PM

This goes against the first amendment. People have a freedom of speech and to petition.  Making a boundary around the abortion clinics would be limiting their freedom to petition in the U.S. Constitution. 

Lauren Heim's comment, May 25, 7:47 PM
This is definitely violating the first amendment. They have the right to petition even if it is a nuisance. If they took it to court they would definitely lose. This is ridiculous.
