Amendments of the Constitution

The Amendments to the Constitution are rights not originally included in the document.

I have chosen in my report Amendments 1, 4, 21, and 26.

Amendment 1 Garuntees and protects the freedom of religion, speech, press, assembly, and petition. 

Amendment 4 prohibits unreasonable searches and seizures.

Amendment 21 repealed amendment 18, and made alchohol legal again. 

Amendment 26 lowered the voting age to 18 years old.

This is about a black man being mistreated by an officer who searched him and said that the man was resisting arrest. However, multiple witnesses provide evidence that the man was searched unfairly and that this was violating his constitutional rights. The witnesses also proved that the man had not resisted arrest. It is sad to see that we still have officers that push their abilities and do more harm to citizens than good.

I thought this was a really interesting, yet disturbing article. I found it ironic because I've recently read 2 different articles on policemen mistreating the person they pull over, and it makes me mad that they would be so quick to violate Constitutional Rights. I know that they are not all like this, but it just bothers me when I see ones that are.

This is about a woman, Ms. millender, getting her rights violated when police stormed into her house and took away her legal handgun that she owned for self defense.  They had a warrant to search the house  looking for her son, but they had no right to take away her legal weapon.

We all have the right to bear arms according to the second amendment. However they are treating this from the fourth amendment point of view. I think that it must be difficult for the police to be able to do what they do with so many people challenging them. If there was enough probable cause, then they should be able to search the house, but taking the legal handgun was a bit much I think.
Annie Christofferson's comment, March 7, 2014 9:11 PM
What should happen in that situation, though? It's interesting because it seems like there are two amendments that apply here, but only one can be upheld. Or was it illegal to take her gun? They had a search warrant to look for her son, but did that give them the right to take her property?

This article is about whether honking your car is a form of freedom of speech or a noise ordinance. when some one honks it can mean they are trying to get their attention or because they are ,mad. if you are driving by protestors honking can be used in a mean to disrespect them. So they are wondering if free speech can be illegal at times.

Mitchell Forrest Enerson's curator insight, April 23, 2014 9:37 PM

If you really believe that honking your horn is that annoying maybe you should learn to drive so people don't feel the need to honk at you. Honking also is not a freedom of speech that should be protected. Obviously honking is a key part of driving and for the safety of drivers but if being used in excess there could be consequences. A easy way to take car of the issue is to take the people excessively honking right off the road.

 

Austin Robertson's comment, April 27, 2014 6:09 PM
This is just another person trying to make up in their own mind what the first amendment really means. Honking your horn is not a form of free speech, it's form of being an idiot. Granted people need to learn how to drive, they only need to be honked at once not excessively.
