Moose Horn Police officers admissible at trial, since no Miranda warnings were given to the defendant at any time?

In the case of Sleazy vs. The state of decency the statements made by the defendant were not admissible in court because the officers did not inform Sleazy of his Miranda rights. These rights should have been stated to the defendant when it was obvious to the police officers that section of the law had been violated. Instead the officers continued to ask Sleazy questions that they knew would incriminate him. This violated his Fifth Amendment right not to incriminate himself; the amendment is a fundamental part of the American justice system and was not adhered to in this case.

Therefore the statements made by Sleazy were not admissible in court. In neglecting to read Sleazy his rights the officers were forfeiting all of the information that Sleazy was providing…… [Read More]. Microeconomics the Concept of Marginal Utility Reflects. Microeconomics The concept of marginal utility reflects the additional utility that a buyer receives for an additional unit of a good.

In this example, Amy is spending an extra dollar if she buys either a bracelet or a soda. If she has an extra dollar, however, she is likely to purchase a soda. This is because the marginal utility of a soda at this point is 40, whereas an extra bracelet has a marginal utility of The rational consumer is going to put their extra financial unit to whatever purchase will maximize utility.

If these utility figures hold, Amy is not maximizing utility. To maximize utility, Amy would only purchase soda since soda has a higher marginal utility than a bracelet. Amy should consume only sodas if the marginal utility of these goods never changes.

Diminishing marginal utility implies that over time the marginal utility of something will diminish. Hypotheticals Brian Short v State of Florida. Hypotheticals Brian Short v.

The only diversity evident is with Juror 5, who has a social class-consciousness that is different from the other men due to his having grown up poor. This little "in" to the theme of prejudice is what helps Juror 8 eventually persuade the others that their hasty "guilty" verdict is based on prejudices rather than on the facts of the case. Moreover,, Juror 11 is also first generation immigrant, and this comes up later in as the jury deliberates.

Though universal with intercultural variations, it cannot be argued that it is only based on the perception of right or wrong. As a support to this, it is correct that cultures have varying beliefs and opinions and view moral reasoning differently.

Besides, Chinese focus on group welfare which is the opposite for American culture which favors individualism.

Obesity Is a Tremendous Public. As it is, obesity emerges in cultures that become wealthy and start eating fast food. Doctors are also responsible for promoting the myth that obesity is related more to genetics than to lifestyle by misrepresenting the statistics about the disease. As WebMD points out, "If one of your parents is obese, you are 3 times as likely to be obese as someone with parents of healthy weight. A child who grows up watching a parent eat potato chips and fast food while watching television might model behavior after that parent.

Rights of Accused One of the most significant legal principles that originated from the English Law and is cherished by conservatives is the due process clause. Actually, the Due Process Clauses can be regarded as among the most essential and controversial provisions entrenched in the American Constitution.

The due process provisions were entrenched in the constitution as a means of ensuring that the rights of innocent people are protected against abuses from the federal government. In addition to protecting innocent people from wrong conviction, the due process clauses also provides a balance of disparity in resources between federal and state governments, and the common accused individual.

Origin of the Due Process: The relationship between these two is a very complex one. They appear to be both friends and enemies to each other. From the very beginning of their friendship when they were young boys, Boy is always trying to make Dunny feel less than what he is.

Boy had more of an attachment to materialistic objects compared to Dunny and although Dunny never has an intention of competing with Boy, Boy sees Dunstan as a rival. On the other hand, Dunny shows how unimportant materialistic objects really are to him.

I though twenty-four dollars was plenty for a ready made suit, and four dollars a criminal price for a pair of shoes. I changed my shirt twice a week and my underwear once. I had not yet developed any expensive tastes and seen nothing wrong with a good boarding-house.

Dunstan makes it appear that he is in love with Diana, when in reality, he is not. Not only does he make it appear that he is in love with her, but he also shows just how easily someone is able to hide the truth — separating reality from appearances. Diana wants a life with Dunstan. She is ready and willing to settle down with him and start a family and because they were going to bed together, Diana was under the impression that Dunny felt the same way she did.

Dunny does nothing to make her think that he does not have the same romantic feelings as she does and because of this appearances collide with reality. That did not include Diana. She seemed to assume that it did, and perhaps I was unfair to her in not checking her assumptions as soon as I became aware of them.

But, to be frank, I liked having her in love with me; it fed my spirit, which was a low ebb. I liked going to bed with her, and as she liked it too I thought it was a fair exchange. He states that he liked having Diana in love with him to boost his own self-esteem and he also admits he hid his true feelings because he liked going to bed with her. Another example of this battle between appearance and reality is shown in the constant self-identity fight going on within Leola Cruikshank.

In this situation, Leola is pressured to change who she is to fit to the extremely high social standards of her husband, Boy Staunton. Boy is constantly tearing his wife down by behaviour such as dressing Leola differently, making her learn a new language and changing her small town girl persona to that of a high society woman. Davies, Leola cannot handle the pressures of trying to please her husband by being somebody who she is not.
