Ted Nugent: 'More guns equals less crime'

Ted Nugent: 'More guns equals less crime' | the repeating of history | Scoop.it

Analysis

Nobody wants to be unarmed and helpless, 80 people die from gunshot a day and 78% of the shooters are let out of their prison. It is an everyday situation when someone is in danger, and that person should have the right to be armed just in case. More guns equal less crimes states Ted Nugent and he is right.

RealClearPolitics - Video - GOP Rep.: "Body Scanners Are A Violation Of The Fourth Amendment"

Body scanners are a violation of the 4th amendment; it is not constitutional to search an individual with no proper cause. There must be a better way to search citizens at airports then to scan them.

The 4th Amendment: Is privacy ever assured? | LegalZoom

The 4th Amendment: Is privacy ever assured? | LegalZoom | the repeating of history | Scoop.it

Analysis

A police suspected a couple entering a public bathroom to have sex. The police knocked and nobody answered, so they opened the door from the outside and caught the two people with cocaine and marijuana. The police did go against the 4th amendment which stated that unreasonable searched were not allowed, but the police did find illegal drugs and also had suspicion which I personally thing is enough information to brake in.

CNN.com - Freedom of religion meets the DMV - May. 23, 2003

Analysis

An American Muslim woman lost her license after she refused to remove her veil for a photo. The first Amendment clearly states for the freedom of religion. The world had changed after September 11 states the authorities of Florida. They cracked down the system after learning that 13 of the 19 hijackers allegedly obtained licenses in Florida. This act is unconstitutional; taking someone’s license for being a certain religion is against the first amendment.

History Song: 5th Amendment-Sky Full Of Silence

5th amendment song.

Madison Blazing's comment, March 9, 2014 8:48 AM
This is a cool video that explains the Fifth Amendment in an interesting way that is easily understood. I think these guys are very creative and they must have put a lot of time into the creation of this video. Finding more entertaining methods that can be utilize to explain the Constitution to Americans seems like a really good idea. Although this video wasn't Hollywood quality, it still provided a lot of good information in an appealing fashion.
Luke French's comment, March 9, 2014 8:40 PM
This music video leaves much to be desired, but it does get the point across very well. The video has NOTHING to do with the song, but the lyrics do a great job of simplifying the 5th amendment. It also outlines several cases where defendants have exercised their right to remain silent.
Logan Felten's curator insight, May 27, 2014 9:27 AM

Although there's kind of a lot going on in this video and it doesn't really go along with the song. It discusses the 5th amendment and all the applies to it. The lyrics of the song do a great job concluding and simplifying the outlines of when the 5th amendment isn't aplicable.

Felons Finding It Easy to Regain Gun Rights

Felons Finding It Easy to Regain Gun Rights | the repeating of history | Scoop.it

Analysis

The second amendment does state the right to bear arms, but this right should be taken away if an individual commits felonies. Eric Zetterfren committed two felonies and earned the right to have a gun back. This is unconstitutional, he is a dangerous person. He killed a man for being with his girlfriend, and that problem would never have happened if he didn’t have that right. This situation needs to be solved but legislators have plenty of other problems to solve that should be a much higher priority than making sure criminals don’t have guns.

Dr. Conrad Murray Sentenced to 4 Years for Michael Jackson's Death

Dr. Conrad Murray Sentenced to 4 Years for Michael Jackson's Death | the repeating of history | Scoop.it

Analysis

Dr. Conrad was proven guilty for the death of Michael Jackson. He had given him an overdose of medication even though he knew it was risky. He used his 5th amendment right in the jury to prove himself innocent but failed and is now sentenced to 4 year in prison. Dr. Conrad should be poisoned for more than 4 years, he has the knowledge and experience to know that the overdose can cause major problems but he went along with it. He should get sentenced to a life time in prison.

Steroid Tests Ignore the 4th Amendment - New York Times

Steroid Tests Ignore the 4th Amendment - New York Times | the repeating of history | Scoop.it

Analysis

Athletes have been forced to take steroid tests for no reason at all. congress have been ignoring this situation. A person shouldn't be forced to get tested unless there is proof that the individual may be doing something illigal. No government agency can conduct a search without first going to court and swearing before a judge that there's a probable cause to the search or seizures. the courts thought might not invalidate the law so quickly.
