Powell v. Alabama
      Post to Main Thread   Reply to Laura

I think this trial was messed up! Those boys should of had a fair trial to begin with. Then again it was 1932!

I can't find what happened to the boys? Were they put to death? Did they receive a new trial? What happened to them?

A very interesting case, on discrimination.

United States v. Cruikshank
      Post to Main Thread   Reply to BCF

Once again I am shocked at how America treated black people and then gave freedom to the outlaws. It is no wonder that it took nearly 100 years to finally get some justice, but America has still not freed the Indians or given them the same rights as others. After all they had been here in the Americas for maybe 10,000 years.

United States v. Cruikshank
      Post to Main Thread   Reply to MDP

Both the District Court and Cruikshank share the same view of the First and the Second having been incoporated into the Fourteenth in 1868, and the Constitituion relative to unalienable Rights of man

The judicial rationale may not have been current, but the affirmation of the First Amendment and the Second were no less true for it. Why through out the baby with the bathwater?

Munn v. Illinois
      Post to Main Thread   Reply to ASF

The dissenting justices had it right:

...if Justice Waite's opinion represented good law, then "all business and all property in the state are held at the mercy of the legislature."

Once again we see a wrong-headed, subjective and convoluted decision by the Supremos.

I think their final ruling was the right thing to do
