ONLY ONE PARAGRPH FOR EACH NUMBER #1 Which Right? Throughout the quarter we have discussed many procedural rights in a criminal case, from initial contact with law enforcement through post-conviction remedies. Your initial post should discuss which right you feel is most important. Explain the source of the right and why the right is important. Do you feel the future of the right is at risk? Why or why not? ____________________________ #2 Death Penalty David the Defendant was arrested and charged with first-degree murder of killing a police informant. At the time of his trial, his attorney advised the Court that his client was mentally incompetent to proceed to trial because he had an IQ of 61. According to medical literature, the minimum competency standard is an IQ of 70 or higher. Nevertheless, after reviewing the testimony, the Court found David competent to stand trial. David was subsequently convicted and sentenced to the Death Penalty. David’s lawyer argues that it is unconstitutional under the Eighth Amendment to execute someone who is mentally incompetent. Do you agree? Why or why not? _____________________________ #3 Eliminating Rank? Share your thoughts on a police organizational structure that you think would reduce police officer stress.
