Three Charged With Marijuana Distribution | Amendmentss of 2011 | Scoop.it

West Ashley residents charged following the search of a Village Square apartment...

 

The residents of West Ashley posessed over a certain amount of grams of drugs, that made them go to jail. The police confiscated over 50 grams of marijuana from them. The police should definately fine them and bring them to jail because they broke the law. This article definately relates to the 4th amendment because they needed a search warrant to go through this residents belongings.

Obama Gun Control Policy: President Stays Virtually Silent On Issue

Obama Gun Control Policy: President Stays Virtually Silent On Issue | Amendmentss of 2011 | Scoop.it

WASHINGTON -- They are fuzzy about some issues but the Republican presidential candidates leave little doubt about where they stand on gun rights. Rick Perry and Rick Santorum go pheasant hunting and give interviews before heading out.

 

I agree with Obama in this article. I would be scared to know people had guns, people could get killed inapropriately. There has been many previous articles about children getting shot from guns 'accidentally'. Children can get access to guns and get themselves in danger.

Lincroft Man Arrested and Charged with Murdering His Wife

Lincroft Man Arrested and Charged with Murdering His Wife | Amendmentss of 2011 | Scoop.it

Patrick F.Allen is being held on $1.5 million bail, pending a court appearance on Monday...

 

This article also relates to the eighth amendment, fines, bail and cruel and unusual punishment. I believe that he should be locked up in jail for a long time with no bail because someone like him being bailed is dangerous for the town. Personally, I think it's completely horrible what he did, and they were arguing over money. Patrick Allen’s bail was set at $1.5 million by Superior Court Judge Anthony Mellaci Jr. I'm sure that Patrick Allen has fines to pay aswell. It's a sad picture because their neighbors claimed them to be just like a 'perfect family' and the Allen's also had two sons.

Is There Freedom of Speech at Work? - Technorati Lifestyle

Is There Freedom of Speech at Work? - Technorati Lifestyle | Amendmentss of 2011 | Scoop.it

So where does freedom of speech begin and end?

 

 

This article proved so many points and it's nothing but the truth. A teenager in Kansas decided to speak her mind reguarding the performance the govenor did. To me, I don't think it's a big deal to speak your mind, every American has the right, 'freedom of speech'. The first amendment is so important and mkes such a big impact on so many people. We should be so grateful for something like this. But the thing is, some Americans/Citizens are afraid to speak their mind because you never know what the other persons reply will be. Then again, in the article it says, "I believe the world is a better place when people are allowed to be themselves and speak their mind. Of course a certain decorum is expected, and people should accept the fact that not everyone would appreciate the words that have been spoken or written" and it's so true. But you always have to be careful what you write online or even Twitter, anyone can see it and can get in trouble.

Defending vetoes, Rendell reflects on his gun control efforts - witf.org

Governor Rendell sounded resigned and reflective, when he defended three vetoes during a conference call this morning. When a reporter asked how the D...

 

Democrats are against having guns, they want to expand the right to deadly self-defense. Governor Rendell is scared at the fact that if a republican runs for president next year, they will allow guns and he just doesn't think it's safe.

The Amendments

The Amendments are rights that Americans have. Our country is very lucky to have Amendments because not all countries don't have as much freedom as we do. The ten amendments are freedom of religion, speech, and the press, right to bear arms, quarting, searches and seizures, indictment, fair and speedy public trial by jury, fines, bail and cruel and unusual punishment, unenumerated rights, and federal government.

Judge fines man $150,000 over retaining wall project - JSOnline

Judge fines man $150,000 over retaining wall project - JSOnline | Amendmentss of 2011 | Scoop.it

After 3½ years of fighting over a grubby acre of empty, unusable land on Milwaukee's west side, the city appears to have finally declared checkmate on the owner who tried to develop the site without following rules.

 

This article is basically based upon the 8th Amendment 'Fines, bail and cruel and unusual punishment'. I don't blame Milwaukee for wanting to fine him for breaking the rules that the property had. Stoss was being completely greedy for 3 1/2 years for a piece of property that he had no money on paying back after being fined for breaking the rules. He should've known what he was getting himself into. Now after all the construction and noise the neighbors had to deal with, Stoss should pay it back to be equal. Now since he can't pay back the property Fuchs suggests that he moves out of Milwaukee.

I do not completely understand why they thought they could fine  him that much over a retaining wall.

Justin kettner's curator insight, February 26, 2014 10:35 PM

He may have made mistakes and he Knew he was doing wrong but a 150,000 dollars may be a little bit out of hand paying back his doin would be a good deal also moving out is this right?

I think 150,000 is a lot to fine someone for a retaining wall..

Occupy protesters right to be disgusted with political leaders - TheHill.com

Occupy protesters right to be disgusted with political leaders - TheHill.com | Amendmentss of 2011 | Scoop.it

Through their political donations and high-powered lobbyists, the banks and financial institutions of Wall Street have ready access to those in office — from the president, Congress and the Cabinet all the way down to executive agencies.

 

In my opinion I think they're using the first amendment very well. The first Amendment is freedom of protesting, and it's very clear that it's allowed. The protestors are enraged by the “crony capitalism” of Washington that conspired to work so effectively to save those at the top of society’s economic ladder while doing so little for those at the bottom. The protestors are protesting because even though they're not rich they still would like the same treatment the rich people are getting.
