CRJ 514 PLEASE LABEL DISCUSSION SEPARATE FROM ASSIGNMENTS
WEEK 5 DISCUSSION 1 Undeniably, the political reaction to the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001, allowed the federal government to limit individual liberties and ceded power to the executive branch (i.e., the president). Your specific examples of the limitations of people’s rights and the increased power to the executive should include an examination if these actions were necessary and appropriate. Were there less drastic measures which could have been taken that would have provided similar results for the protection of the country?
WEEK 5 DISCUSSION 2 Very few cases must be reviewed by the U.S. Supreme Court. Provide your opinion of whether or not more cases should be mandatorily reviewed by the nation’s higher court. One option the Court has is to let lower court cases stand. In essence, the Court may ignore reviewing a case because the Court either agrees with the lower court, or believes that the case is not “important enough for review.” Analyze whether or not this is the best legal standard for review. WEEK 6 DISCUSSION 1 Based upon your readings, discussions, and papers for this course, provide your own analyses of the significance of the U.S. Supreme Court and its effects on the criminal justice system. Explain whether or not the functions and focus of the U.S. Supreme Court provide a “best practices” approach to criminal law in the United States. What could be done to improve current Supreme Court practices? It is recommended that your post contain approximately 400 words. Guided Response: You are encouraged to “think outside the box” in this discussion. How essential is it to have one, over-arching court interpreting criminal law for the entire country? Should the entire nation be ruled through one court, or should local, county, state, or even regional customs and practices be allowed or even revered?
