Question description

Discussion1

In 2012 the Supreme Court, in a 5-4 decision, upheld the constitutionality of
routine (without probable cause) strip searches of persons arrested and
detained, even briefly, in a jail (Florence v. Board of Chosen Freeholders of the Country
of Burlington
). Respond to this 3-part question in your initial
post:

Explain the rationale of the Supreme Court's decision in Florence
(the majority opinion by Justice Kennedy).

  1. Explain the rationale of Justice Breyer’s dissenting opinion.
  2. Evaluate both the majority and minority rationales. Explain and
    justify your evaluation by drawing on prior Supreme Court interpretations of the
    4th Amendment’s prohibition of “unreasonable searches” from the required
    textbook.


Your initial post should be at least 250 words in
length. Support your claims with examples from the required material(s) and/or
other scholarly resources, and properly cite any references. Respond to at least
two of your classmates’ posts by Day 7 in at least 100 words. Respond to someone
whose perspective on “unreasonable searches” differs from yours in some way.

Disussio2

 the Supreme Court has applied the 8th Amendment’s
prohibition against cruel and unusual punishments against some of the harsher
sentencing policies implemented by various states. Three cases dealing with
juvenile offenders – Roper v. Simmons (2005), Graham v. Florida (2010), and Miller v. Alabama (2012) – illustrate this
moderating trend. An underlying rationale of these decisions –
“disproportionality” – contrasts with rationales guiding the Court’s earlier
(pre-2002) interpretations of the 8th Amendment (see Davis,
2008).

Respond to this 3-part question in your initial post:

Explain the rationale which seems to guide the current Supreme Court
majority’s approach to defining “cruel and unusual punishment.”

  1. Contrast this approach with an important rationale that seems to guide the
    pre-2002 Court.
  2. Evaluate both of these approaches. Explain and justify your
    evaluation by drawing on persuasive evidence apart from your own personal
    opinion (e.g., research findings from sociology or criminal justice).


Your initial post should be at least 250 words in length. Support
your claims with examples from the required material(s) and/or other scholarly
resources, and properly cite any references. Respond to at least two of your
classmates’ posts by Day 7 in at least 100 words. Respond to someone whose
perspective on “cruel and unusual punishment” differs from yours.
