After all, Ernesto Miranda who was the namesake of the Miranda ights was a rapist and a guilty one at that. He was retried after his confession was tossed and he was re-convicted as were many of the other people that had their convictions overturned at the same time. However, others were never re-tried and it's safe to say that at least some of them were guilty.
Conclusion

In the end, criminals that know they are guilty are abusing the system but police and other law enforcement people have done the same thing and many innocent people have rotted in prison as a result. it's an imperfect system. However, the concepts and questions raised by Bridwell and Quirk are certainly valid and worthy or review. After all, Supreme Court justices are appointed for life and cannot be removed. While many may point to the fact that this is necessary to protect….

North Korean Dictatorship
Is the North Korean dictatorship sustainable for the next century?

The torture started with questions about the conspiracy of Shin Dong-Hyuk's family to escape their political prison camp in North Korea. It continued for weeks; some of the favorite tactics of the guards were to hang the 14-year-old Shin upside down with his ankles cuffed and a fire blowing under his back while he could not even move due to a steel hook inserted near his groin. Shin was dragged from the torture cells after weeks of incomprehensible torture in order to witness the public hanging of his mother and the execution by firing squad of his brother. (Blaine)

The first man to have escaped the political prison camps of North Korea and lived to tell the world about the country's brutalities, Shin has worked towards raising awareness about what is going on in that country. From his own experience….

American Government Structure and Foundation" to a group of new citizens, what would you say?
Welcome.

I want you to know that it just doesn't get any better than this. In everything I say today, you're going to notice some really negative things. But every time you think I'm complaining, keep in mind that I know -- it just doesn't get any better than this. America has the worst form of government imaginable, except for every other kind of government in existence.

Let me tell you a few secrets about American Government Structure and Foundation. Officially, it's a republic. That means the people get to elect representatives who they trust to govern them, and those rulers are subject to other external checks and balances such as judges, and constitutions and so forth. The external checks serve to protect the rights of the individual from the tyranny of the majority, and representation serves….

The Perfect DictatorshipIntroductionWhat is Mexico? How has it come to be in the state that it is today? The film The Perfect Dictatorship represents a Mexico whose leaders in both politics and media are so thoroughly corrupt, and in bed together with one another, that no honest men have a chance of winning a seat in a position of power. Has Mexico always been this way? The fact is that the 21st century is unique in its own ways because of the power and influence of media and the role that crime plays in the lives of the rich and famous. In prior centuries, Mexico faced different issues, different strugglesand if the same kind of corruption was there it was manifested in different ways. One thing that is clear is that the struggle of Mexicans was more genuine in the past than in today (Hamnett, 2019). The Mexican evolution of….

Responsible for the Failure of the League Nations
Absence of extraordinary powers

Great powers refer to nations that have influential abilities and capabilities to exert force in any national or international happening. The League of Nations lacked enormous formidable powers who could participate in influencing decision-making processes. The covenant of the League of Nations was incorporated to be part of the peace settlement. Nonetheless, the league failed to be separated from the powers that could have had influential powers to its policies. Many nations were for the nation that the Treaty of Versailles in order to foster revenge activities.

The same idea had no plans to be rectified in the case that the plans never went as planned. ecause these nations had failed to be part of the rectification processes, these nations failed to be members of the League of Nations. ecause of this aspect, many nations failed to be part of….


11. What is community policing? How does it differ from traditional policing?

Community policing emphasizes positive situational contacts between police personnel and the general public and de-emphasizes enforcement-based approaches to policing. It differs from traditional policing mainly in that it is a means of reducing crime through enhanced public involvement in communities and in that it strongly promotes the initiation of police-civilian contacts outside of the enforcement realm (Caruso & Nirode, 2001).

12. What is the nature of the drug problem in the United States? Is today's drug problem any different or worse than the drug problem in the past?

The most important drug problem today is the questionable value of criminalizing private recreational drug use, particularly in relation to marijuana, which cannot be justified or logically distinguished from the permissive approach to cigarette and alcohol consumption. Evidence from Europe suggests that even enforcement of criminal laws prohibiting the use of harder drugs….

Pinochet's Case is Not Yet Satisfying to Chilean and Human Rights Activists
Although hampered by internal constraints and challenges, the nation of Chile stands poised to enter the 21st century as a major player in the world's international community. On the one hand, the sound economic policies that were first implemented by the Pinochet dictatorship resulted in unprecedented growth in 1991- 1997; these policies have also helped secure the country's commitment to democratic and representative government. On the other hand, General Augusto Pinochet has been found guilty of the torture, disappearance, and murder of thousands of Chileans, including international citizens, but he has not yet been brought to justice. After Patricio Aylwin inaugurated a democratic presidency in 1990, he continues to bring excuses for Pinochet's actions or exercises control to avoid facing justice. Pinochet declared himself as Commander of Chief of the Army and afterwards, Senator for life in Chile.….

Santa Anna Dictatorship
In his self-described revisionist biography Santa Anna of Mexico (2007), Will Fowler has courageously taken up the defense of the Mexico caudillo, fully aware that he is all but universally reviled in the historiography of the United States and Mexico. From the beginning, he made his intention clear to vindicate the reputation of a dictator whose "vilification has been so thorough and effective that the process of deconstructing the numerous lies that have been told and retold" is almost impossible.[footnoteRef:1] Timothy J. Henderson asserted that he had a great talent for exploiting and manipulating political divisions but none for governing a country. In U.S. history and popular culture, he has always been portrayed as a corrupt megalomaniac, the 'Napoleon of the West', responsible for the massacres at the Alamo and Goliad. As John Chasteen and James Wood put it, even his autobiography was an "extraordinary work of self-dramatization"….

Hence, his plan here was not even based upon the assumption of ethnic plurality, but simply upon his own hunger for territorial power.
Franjo Tudjman, equally power hungry, was the elected president of Croatia in 1990. His focus was not ethnic plurality. Rather, his aim was to establish a Croatian state for Croatians, without providing any minority rights to other citizens. For this reason, his focus on Bosnia was also to annex the Croatian areas of the country.

The respective nationalistic and dictatorship tendencies of these two leaders, far more than intergroup ethnic conflict, have led to the complete destruction of ethnic plurality in Bosnia. Even in cities, such as Sarajevo, where ethnic groups lived peacefully side by side, political manipulation has caused only destruction. Instead of ethnic pluralism, media such as television has caused rampant nationalism, which fed on the historic fears of ethnic groups to stir them to uncharacteristic….

This is designed to help support individuals who are dealing with financial challenges. The problem is that select amounts of recipients will use as a way to live off of the government. (Wolf, 2005)
How might a socialist and a capitalist government differ in its treatment of the problem of unemployment?

Socialists want to see massive amounts of government spending to create new jobs, training programs and provide unemployment benefits. A capitalist is opposed to these kinds of programs and believes that charities / private enterprises can address these issues.

In your opinion, should the government have the responsibility of providing health care for every citizen? Why or why not?

Yes, the government should provide health care. The reason why is because prices are increasing exponentially and the number of uninsured is rising. These factors are a sign that there is very little competition inside the sector. To address these imbalances a government….


One of the main reasons why proletarians were willing to risk their lives while going against their leaders relates to how most of them realized that they had very little to lose if they would not succeed, taking into account that they lived most of their lives being heartlessly exploited. Marxism does not necessarily involve violence as a means to reform, as, according to the ideology, change can also happen peacefully in countries that lived by democratic principles (Morgan 184).

Classless society

hile Marxism stands as a harsh denunciation of bourgeoisie, it is also meant to make society a free community where individuals are actually rewarded accordingly for their efforts rather than to be exploited as tools. By turning society in a place that promoted equality between individuals with no regard to their background Marxism wanted to improve conditions in the world. By having access to "political knowledge and political training" (Lenin….

Reign of Terror
PAGES 6 WORDS 1832

eign of Terror
Criminal Justice

Historians have marked the French evolution with several interesting and unusual events. A specific time period during the French evolutio is called as "The eign of Terror." This began on September 5, 1793 and ended on July 27, 1794. This can be best explained in these words: Storming of the Bastille on July 14, 1789 signaled the beginning of the French evolution. Within three years, the king was executed, and the following year a revolutionary tribunal was established to judge "enemies of the people" (Henty 02). During the French evolution, the Convention didn't establish a democracy; instead they established a war dictatorship. The government's radical takeover was to create a epublic and this was then called as "eign of Terror." The Committee of General Security, the Committee of Public Safety and several other agencies controlled it. One of those agencies was the evolutionary Tribunal. The eign of….

However, over the years, history book publishers have not followed suit and described the soladeras in a positive way. For instance, one of Casaola's most well-known photos is of a harried soldadera in a train station. The photograph's saturated colors make the scene deeply emotional and compelling, with a feeling of urgency and dynamic motion. The spontaneity of the picture and transparency of reality provide an historical accuracy and high degree of precision. Yet, the caption of one history book, for example, relates how many of the soldaderas were forced to ride on the rooftops of the trains, instead of inside the wagons. Many of the women died early deaths when the train sped through dangerous ravines and cliffs. This was anything but a supportive interpretation of the photograph and not why Casola took the photographs.
On the other hand, Casola's photographs, especially this one in the train station, did….

CONADEP
In 1976, life changed dramatically in Argentina. On March 24, 1976, a military coup took place. In an attempt to wipe out all dissenting opinion, they began a campaign of terror where thousands of people literally disappeared. The testimonies of the survivors of torture and kidnapping are brutal to read. The methods used to torture them; including electrical prods and live burials left lasting scars, both physical and mental on these survivors. The patterns in these testimonies are all the same. The torturers were sadistic and brutal, and would stop at nothing to get the information they wanted. They tortured loved ones in front of their family members, they took whole families from their homes, and they killed thousands with no remorse.

The patterns are patterns of extreme violence, and the violence seems to stem from fear. They feared the recriminations of the left-wing dissidents, they feared their reaction to their….
