- Paul Bernardo
The urge shot through the mans body, uncontrollable, like sharks in a
feeding frenzy. He could only quench his feverish desires by carrying out
unspeakable devilish acts. The victim didn't matter, no thought was given to
any implications of the satanic rituals. Several times Bernardo resorted to
defecating of human beings in order to satisfy his sick and abnormal urges.
Paul Bernardo's lustful and diverted sexual desires sprouted from the influence
of pornography. Pornography...

thousands of jurisdictions is the subject that will be covered. The Juvenile
Justice System is defined as that "sociolegal process having responsibility and
authority for public reaction to current juvenile delinquency and deterrence of

- Medical Malpractice
The doctor-patient relationship has been defined differently through the
years. In the beginning it developed into a "common calling" which meant
doctors practiced medicine as a duty to their patients. Laws were developed to
protect patients, therefore doctors used proper care and expert skill. In the
past six centuries, medical malpractice has increased, which lead to revision
and addition to the law. Liability was introduced along with the "GIANT of all

The Effects of Race on Sentencing in Capital Punishment Cases
Throughout history, minorities have been ill-represented in the criminal justice
system, particularly in cases where the possible outcome is death. In early
America, blacks were lynched for the slightest violation of informal laws and
many of these killings occured without any type of due process. As the judicial
system has matured, minorities have found better representation but it is not
completely unbiased. In the past twenty y...
- The Context Of The Second Amendment
The Context of The Second Amendment
The interpretation of the Second Amendment to the Constitution of the
United States of America has been a topic of controversy since its acceptance
over two-hundred years ago. This controversy stems from the fact that the
amendment was written for reasons for the most part that do not have any
relevance today. One side argues the amendment void, and the other takes it
out of historical context so it portrays the meaning they want. To understand
- Gun Control

gun control side believe that gun ownership is a Constitutional right backed by

abiding citizens. Pro-gun control believe that guns are the backbone to our

restless night, you hear a bump in the kitchen. At first you dismiss it as the
wind. But there it is again, and it's louder this time. You're scared, your
pulse is racing and you cannot think of what to do. You don'...

- The Right To A Free Trial
The Right To A Free Trial
One of the most important freedoms in the American judicial system is
the right to a jury trial. This allows a minimum of six Americans, chosen from
a list of registered voters, to determine a person's guilt or innocence through
deliberations. They have the power to express the conscious of society as well
as interpret and judge the laws themselves. If they feel that a law is
unconstitutional, evil, or even unfair they can void it for the circumstance by
- Falsely Accused
What has to happen before the media quits jumping to conclusions about
news stories ? It makes you wonder about the possibility of legal restrictions
on the amount of information that the media can put out before the actual case
is proven and solved. I mean after all in the case of Richard Jewell , there was
a definite issue of false accusations . This man was treated unfairly under the
false assumption that he was guilty of a crime that he did not commit.
I think that Jewell...
