Riminal Justice/Supreme Court Case Project: Individual Rights Perspective v. Crime Control Perspective
For the following 30 cases, please give the year and the chief justice at the time of the decision (i.e. the Burger Court, the Warren Court, the Roberts Court, etc.) and which perspective the decision represents. Review Chapter 1: The Theme of This Book, pages 5-7 of the textbook. It will give you an understanding of what the Individual Rights and Crime Control perspectives are.
Grade the cases on a scale of 1 to 10, one being Individual Rights and ten being Crime Control. Where do you think the cases fall on that scale? Give your reason(s) for each ranking and write a few lines explaining each ranking; keep the explanations short.
