This article is about a man whose 6th amendment rights were denied when it took the court 6 and half years to charge him. The 6th amendment allows citizens to have a speedy and quick trial.  The supreme court removed his sentence because of the violation of his right.

This article talks about the 6th amendment and a case that violated this amendment. Why did it take six and a half years to sentences a man of sexual assault charges? Why did the Supreme Court feel like the man's rights were being violated? 

Joe Smith's comment, May 3, 2014 11:44 AM
I thought this article is important because he got away with sexual assault all because they took to long to sentence him. That isn't safe letting someone like that go.

This article talks about a case where a woman's house was searched for her foster son's gun. Her foster son used the gun in a domestic assault. The police found the woman's gun which was legally owned and took it from her. The police violated the 4th amendment because they had the search warrant for the woman's foster son, not her. Why this relates to government and law is that the article talks about the 4th amendment which is part of the US Constitution.

In many schools across the country, students are always searched, and many of them can be considered unreasonable.  The 4th amedment is supposed to protect citizens against these searches, yet many schools think that they are an exception to this law.  The amendment states that no one should undergo any unreasonable searches and seizures, which is clearly going on right now.  These students rights are being violated.

In this case, the judge found that police had illegally questioned someone about a crime they commited.  The woman being questioned was denied her right to having a lawyer present and she never consented to the questioning.  Also, the police made an effort to downplay the  importance of her 5th amendment rights.  All of these things are a clear violation of the 5th amendment.

This article relates to the law. They are breaking many aspects of the fifth amendment. Everyone has equal rights and should be given the same opportunity. They violated the lady's right she had in court. They should be held at lawsuit for  their actions.

This article talks about the 5th amendment and a case that violated this amendment. What did the judge do to the police who illegally questioned someone about a crime they committed? 

Lauren Heim's comment, May 4, 2014 8:38 PM
The fact that these cops knew what they were doing and abusing their power is what gives cops their negative stereotype. And not only worse but they violated the constitution and its amendments more than once. So in this case I really believe the lady should take it to court and see if she can win considering the evidence was brought up illegally.

1st amendment right being violated

A minister from Michigan felt that his 1st amendment rights were being violated after telling a judge that he could be tortured by God.  The minister was charged with threatening the judge, even though all he was doing was expressing his feelings.  This is a violation of his rights because he was not allowed to speak what he wanted to.

I believe that the pastors rights were not violated. If the pastor would have jus stated his opinion this may be a different story. He has threatened judges on several occasions, and that is overstepping his freedom of speech. I think the judge made the right decision. If he felt his life was endangered he did what he had to in order to protect himself.
