    1,245 words
    The case of Mapp vs. Ohio is one of the most important Supreme Court decisions of the last century. Until this decision, the rights against illegal search and seizure had no method to be enforced. Up until this time, previous cases at set precedents provided little or no protection from illegal searches and seizures for the accused facing state prosecution. On May 23, 1957, Miss Doll ree Mapp heard a knocking at her door (170 Ohio Street). When she asked who it was, three men identified themselv...

    In my opinion The United States ordeal with Annexing the Philippines and the idea that we had of going into war with them was great mistake and should have been avoided.

    Level's of Analysis James Roseau has a very good definition of Foreign Policy. He defines it in terms of states in the international system, that there is policy within and a policy without, and it is the boundary of the nation-state that determines what is domestic and what is foreign. Moreover, the right to make foreign policy has been reserved traditionally only to certain bureaucrats, agencies, and authorities representing the governments of states. It is the security of the nation-state tha...

    A Breakdown Of Lincoln's House Divided Speech Breakdown Of Lincoln's House Divided Speech Mr. President, and Gentlemen of the Convention If we could first know where we are, and whither we are tending, we could then better judge what to do, and how to do it We are now far into the fifth year since a policy was initiated, with the avowed object, and confident promise, of putting an end to slavery agitation Under the operation of that policy, that agitation has not only, not ceased, but has consta...
