This article is about a young boy named Jihad Hamad. He was walking home, doing no harm when he was shot in the neck and shoulder. Ahmad holds American citizenship. It shows that some Israelis view Palestinian kids as targets. The Israeli soldiers were not In any danger that would need the use of live ammunition.  What do you think should happen to the solider that shot Hamad? What  are your thoughts on this?

The outcome of this trial will likely make a strong statement about the United States judicial system. While Giles is entitled to "confront" the victim under the United States Constitution, I find it kind of ridiculous that he is using this argument as his defense. Because Giles murdered her, the woman obviously is unable to testify and be confronted in a court of law, and it seems like he is just using this right to his advantage. While I am assuming there is a lot more to this case than is stated in the article, I still don't think Giles should be absolved of his crime. After reading this article, I think that this case will likely be discussed for awhile, as many arguments can be created for both sides, regardless of the outcome.

Some people have a reason to go to abortion clinics, such as if they have been raped. So there should be someone standing outside telling they shouldn't do what they didn't mean to happen. For the other people, we should find a different way for them to not have an abortion.

Abigail Beinborn's curator insight, May 21, 2014 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.

Haley Abrams's curator insight, February 20, 2014 12:57 AM

Defining marriage is not an easy or simple task as this article states their are two ways of looking at marriage the local level and also the moral level. But how do you decide what is and is not moral and under what power? Under the power of the tenth amendment each state has the power to decide to positively effect the moral. With this each state has the power to "define marriage" but what happens with travel. How does marriage if not in the traditional sense ( one man and one women) travel from state to state. Will the same laws be held in that state and will they receive the same benefits?

Benton Blank's comment, February 22, 2014 9:40 PM
I think that the article deals less with how marriage is defined, and more with who holds the power to define it, the national government or the state government. Haley is correct in saying "under the power of the tenth amendment each state has the power to decide to positively effect the moral," and if this is so, then each state is likely to define it differently. As for traveling, under article 4 of the constitution, each state is to honor the laws of other states, hence a marriage in one state would have to be recognized by another state. I thought this article brought up some very good points, though either way the courts rule, the actual definition(s) of marriage would still have to be made.
Annie Christofferson's comment, February 23, 2014 3:09 PM
My question is, does the Constitution directly say anything about marriage? I know that Ben mentioned in the 10th amendment that the state can make some of their own rules and decide what they want to do, but does the Constitution itself say anything regarding marriage and who someone can marry? I think that sometimes people try to put words into the Constitution that aren't really there. I know for a fact that I don't know everything that the Constitution says, but I just find it interesting how much of an issue marriage is when technically, each state can make its own decision.

I don't know in the first place why in the world marijuana was made legal in the first place. If something was ILLEGAL it was illegal for a reason. By legalizing this they are basically promoting the distribution of drugs and that can lead to many other problems. It can lead to cartels that result in deaths because most do, it can lead to driving under the influence and guess who's shoulders that's going to fall back on, the governments. What if teens died in a car accident in Colorado because of weed, how do you think the government would feel after that? It's just stupid a pond careless.
pdowds30's comment, April 29, 2014 6:04 PM
I personally don't think that marijuana is an issue in the United States. It has never killed anyone. Alcohol is more dangerous than marijuana and has done quite the damage to our population. The federal government is right in saying that as long as it stays in Colorado, there is no issue. Legalizing marijuana nation-wide would decrease the crime rate significantly and allow many people to return to a good state of health. Just like same-sex marriage, if you don't like it, don't do it.
