FC: Bill of Rights | By: Callie McKeown
2: 1st Amendment | The right to speak openly about what you think and feel is called freedom of speech. Freedom of speech means freedom of thought meaning i can be able to express my beliefs and thoughts without fear of punishment from the government. . | Freedom of Speech | Freedom of religion is that anyone can believe in whatever religion they want. The government can't make people believe in god if they don't want to. For example I don't go to church and thats fine because no one can make me go because I have freedom of religion. | Freedom of Religion
3: Freedom of press means that you can express your thoughts in the newspaper, in books and the Internet. You also have the right to read books on any subject. The only person that can ban certain books from you is your parents. | Freedom of Press
4: 2nd Amendment | The Right to Bear Arms | The second amendment gives people the right to own a gun. Each State has their own laws about keeping a gun. For example, in some states it is okay to carry a gun in public and in some states you can't.
5: The forgotten amendment is that no solider can live in your home during war or peace without permission from the owner. People have forgot about it because there hasn't been any recent wars in the US. | 3rd Amendment | The Forgotten Amendment
6: 4th Amendment | searches and seizures
7: People and their homes cannot be searched by police for no reason unless the police have a search warrant. The police need probable cause to get warrant. In school, teachers and staff don't need a search warrant to search you, All they need is reasonable grounds. This is because schools are trying to keep kids safe and protect them.
8: 5th Amendment | Criminal | This amendment is good to know in case I'm ever arrested, so I know what the police have to say the miranda rights.
9: This amendment is about protection of the innocent. A person can not be tried twice for the same crime, and thats called double jeopardy. 5th amendment is also the right to have a trial. Because of the 5th amendment we got the Miranda rights. The police have to say the Miranda rights and they have to tell why the person is getting arrested. Another thing is I can't testify against myself. The government cant take away my private property without paying a fair amount.
10: 6th Amendment | Rights of People in Criminal Cases
11: This Amendment is about that if someone is accused he must be told charges against him and he must be allowed to have a lawyer. The 6th Amendment also gives the right to a speedy and public trial.An example is in some countries people might not know why there being arrested and the people have to sit in jail for a long time and not even know why. -- Santana is awesome!!!
12: 7th Amendment | The Right of Trial by Jury in Civil Cases
13: The 7th Amendment means you have the right to a jury in civil cases when the argument is over. A civil case is not criminal, It is when people are arguing over money. An example is that if a landlord sues the person living in the apartment because they didn't pay their rent.
14: 8th Amendment | Cruel and unusual
15: The 8th Amendment Protects from cruel and unusual punishments. A long time ago when someone did something wrong they used to put them on the electric shock chair, cut off their ears,....etc. 8th Amendment also forbids unreasonably high bail and fines.
16: The rights in this amendment are All of the rights that are not listed in the first eight. This catch all amendment was created to make people feel safe. You have the right to dye your hair any color you want, and you have the right to have privacy, etc... | 9th Amendment
18: 10th Amendment | The tenth Amendment gives power to the states to make their own laws because we don't want the federal government to have all of the power. This why states can have their own police, this is why the laws are different in states.
