Structure of the Court System: Crash Course Government and Politics #19
 
06:59
This week Craig Benzine is going to talk about the structure of the U.S. court system and how exactly it manages to keep things moving smoothly. We’’ll talk about trial courts, district courts, appeals courts, circuit courts, state supreme courts, and of course the one at the top - the U.S. Supreme Court. It’s all quite a bit to manage with jurisdictions and such, but it's important to remember that the vast majority of cases never even make it to court! Most are settled out of court, but also terms like mootness and ripeness are used to throw cases out altogether. Today, we're going to focus on how cases make it to the top, and next week we’ll talk about what happens when they get there.

2016 Mock Trial Finals
 
01:45:38
A special presentation from MCAET. The Lyceum of Monterey County Annual "Mock Trial" Finals from 2016. Carmel High School and Pacific Grove High go head to head in an epic battle over a murder case. The Mock Trial Program is an exciting law-related educational program that introduces high school students (grades 9-12) to the American legal system. Mock trials are structured like "real" court trials and follow the same rules. The program pairs students with mentors from the legal community. Through one-on-one interactions with attorney coaches, a student's understanding of the law is greatly enhanced. Through role-playing, students gain an understanding of our judicial system--what roles judges, lawyers, juries and witnesses play in the system. Additionally, students develop critical thinking and public speaking skills and a working knowledge of our legal practices and procedures.

Texas Supreme Court and School Funding
 
07:14
After years of debate over school funding, the Texas Supreme Court has said that there is no legal reason to force a change. Over 600 School Districts and tens of thousands of teachers joined a lawsuit back in 2011 after the Legislature cut nearly $5.5 billion in school funding. They argued that state lawmakers were abdicating the responsibility to adequately and equally fund education. Last week the Texas Supreme Court found that while the Texas school funding system is flawed, it does abide by the State Constitution and does not have to be changed. Currently Texas ranks 38th in per pupil spending compared to the rest of the U.S. The RoundUp discusses the State Supreme Court's ruling, how the Legislature might address school funding, what this means for education in Texas

An insider’s plan for rehabilitating the juvenile justice system | Jeff Wallace | TEDxNaperville
 
18:24
Juveniles committing crimes sometime get treated like adults in the penile system. Sometimes this seems logical and the “right thing to do”. But is it? Jeff Wallace takes you through what happens when you treat a juvenile like an adult in this riveting personal story. Jeff has spent most of his life studying the effects of the policy and procedures followed by the criminal justice system on at-risk youth – first, as one of those youths and then, through his undergraduate and graduate degrees in Criminal Justice. At work, he’s a Group Care Manager who guides a team at a non-profit organization, working to strengthen children, families and individuals by providing quality services that engage community resources to create effective solutions. He is also a Youth Counselor at a county detention center in Iowa and a Crisis Interventionist for the Davenport police department and local hospitals. He is driven to change the way youthful offenders are sentenced, so there will be more cases of these youngsters being able to find their true path in life. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at http://ted.com/tedx

Teaching current events in school
 
04:42
Fla. - It's something your kids want to talk about: headlines out of Ferguson, New York, and more recently, Baltimore. They're hearing about it, reading it, watching videos and seeing pictures on social media. Race relations and law enforcement becomes points of discussion at school. These types of conversations aren't always in the lesson plan, but they happen, especially in history and government classes and when students decide they want to talk about these tough issues, teachers don't avoid the discussion, they use them as a teaching school. Leah Rhodes teaches civics at Bellview Middle School. When her students want to talk about current events that bother them, she lets them talk about the issues to weed out fact from fiction. "Some of them are frustrated some of them want to talk about it," she said. "Some of them want to say, if this was me or my family member I'd do this or that, a lot of them are curious." When the riots erupted in Baltimore, Rhode's students wanted to talk about it, renewing conversations about South Carolina, New York and Ferguson. It spurred dialogue into more sensitive topics like relations and policing in minority neighborhoods. "A lot of them are angry with police officers so we have to say, "well who are you to call if someone breaks into your home so it comes well then not all police officers are bad," Rhodes said. At Pensacola High School, the students don't only share opinions, they want to share personal stories "I stuck my hand out of the sunroof and we got pulled over," one student said. "And as soon as we got pulled over I stuck my hand up and I said, 'I don't got a gun, I don't got a gun." "Why did you do that?" Sue Mullin, the teacher, asked. "Just because of stories of cops that just because a person was black they thought they had a gun and they fired at him," the student answered. The classroom had a comfortable climate. Some students were eager to talk, and just about everyone seemed willing to listen. "I like giving out my opinion, i l want to see if somebody sees it like me," 11th grader DeAndre Norman said. there's always two sides of a story and sometimes were only telling one side of the story," another 11th grader, Constantine Sharp said. Mullin is used to teaching delicate issues in her history class, from segregation to Roe vs. Wade. She says Michael brown and Freddie gray require the same care. "They're very interested to know what I think, and it's difficult to refrains sometimes but it's not my job to teach what I think," Mullin said. "What I explain to them is that my opinion doesn't matter." Teachers cling to that rule when controversial topics come up. They say it's also important to blend it into the course material, so a day of instruction isn't wasted. At Rhodes civics class, the Baltimore riots become a talking point for the first amendment. And the demonstrators push for justice, turn into a lesson of the US Courts Students get more questions than answers during discussion. But teachers believe it's a way to get them thinking critically by exposing them to as many perspectives as possible. "You want to give them a venue to express themselves," Mullin said. "The more that they discuss, the more they understand," Rhodes added. Cherie Arnette, the social studies head for the Escambia School District says the other thing she emphasizes to her teachers, is to watch the clock during discussions. "You want to give students a safe in and out," Arnette said. "You never want to get students at a high point or low point in the conversation, the bell rings, and then send them off to math class."

Access to Justice: A Journey of a Lifetime
 
08:10
The Access to Justice Internship Program provides a unique opportunity for law students to participate in a internship with a legal aid office in rural areas. These internships educate students about the civil legal needs of low-income people and provide future lawyers with the skills to address these problems. Each law student is supervised by accomplished lawyers and has the opportunity to provide direct legal services to low-income clients in addition to receiving hands-on training and mentorship. Each supervising attorney provides their law students with a variety of experiences and assignments, including significant research and writing, which helps them learn about access to justice matters, legal decision-making, advocacy skills, attorney-client relationships, and legal institutions. The internships are open to law school students from any law school throughout the country, but preference is given to applicants from Texas law schools. A stipend of $500 per week is provided to every student to help defray the living expenses of the 10-week commitment.

UT Students, Faculty: Campus Carry Timing an 'Ironic Coincidence’
 
03:06
A new law passed last year to allow concealed handgun license holders the ability to carry their weapons on state university campuses statewide takes effect Monday; the same day that marks 50 years since a student opened fire from high up in the campus tower at the University of Texas at Austin. Many faculty, students and parents call the timing of the events an ‘ironic coincidence.’ August 1, 1966, Charles Whitman, a student at the University of Texas at Austin incited panic and chaos on the 40 acres when he opened fire from the 28th floor of the campus’ iconic tower. Whitman killed more than a dozen people and injured more than 30 others in the historic massacre before two men shot and killed him. Fast-forward to today – 50 years later – a landmark anniversary with a legislative twist. Steve Goode: “It is certainly an ironic coincidence.” A new law passed last year to allow concealed handgun license holders the ability to carry their weapons on public university campuses statewide takes effect Monday, on the anniversary, a few weeks shy of the start of classes. Steve Goode, UT Law Professor: “I think the only thing that will mitigate against that becoming a major issue is that it’s Aug. 1 as opposed to Aug. 25 and so the campus will still be fairly empty on Aug. 1. But we’ll see what happens when students come back and classes start.” Steve Goode, a U-T law professor chaired the Campus Carry Policy Working Group. Over the course of three months last year, the group gathered input on how handguns must be carried and stored, where they’re not permitted and proactive measures the university should take. Several people we talked to at UT were not happy about the new law. Keili Harrison, UT Austin Student: “I’m not a fan of it to be honest. I do see where it could come in handy, but I think the consequences will be heavier than the benefit.” Sahit Reddy, UT Austin Student: “I’m a little scared just because recently there’s been so many shooting events and you just never know.” Michael Thomas Ricketts, UT Alum: “I would say, as a parent, I’d be very concerned…I like the idea of having a safe, guns-free campus. I think that’s great for the education system and the ability to learn.” State Sen. Brian Birdwell, (R) Granbury: “We ought not be limiting a right on public property the people of Texas own.” For the Republican lawmakers who crafted the legislation, it’s about protecting the constitutional right to bear arms on government property. The law allows for universities to carve out limited “gun-free zones,” such as labs that store hazardous chemicals, child-care facilities and ticketed sporting events. Steve Good: “The odds that anything is going to happen are extremely slight. Odds that it’ll be an accidental discharge are probably greater than anything else, but who knows. It’s just hard to know what’s going to happen.” Goode just hopes the focus on the law simmers after it takes effect; that it becomes a fact of life on campus as it has in other states with similar campus carry laws on the books. - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - → Subscribe for more videos: https://www.youtube.com/user/thetexastribune → Like us on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/texastribune → Follow us on Twitter: https://twitter.com/texastribune

The Constitution, the Articles, and Federalism: Crash Course US History #8
 
13:04
In which John Green teaches you about the United States Constitution. During and after the American Revolutionary War, the government of the new country operated under the Articles of Confederation. While these Articles got the young nation through its war with England, they weren't of much use when it came to running a country. So, the founding fathers decided try their hand at nation-building, and they created the Constitution of the United States, which you may remember as the one that says We The People at the top. John will tell you how the convention came together, some of the compromises that had to be made to pass this thing, and why it's very lucky that the framers installed a somewhat reasonable process for making changes to the thing. You'll learn about Shays' Rebellion, the Federalist Papers, the elite vs rabble dynamic of the houses of congress, and start to find out just what an anti-federalist is.

Civics EOC State Exam Review Part I
 
15:46
This PowerPoint, with activities, and lesson plans are available @: https://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Store/Mr-Raymond-Civics-Eoc-Academy This lesson is to provide test preparation for the Florida Civics E.O.C. Exam and to be used as a review for the test. This is part I of IV videos that cover of the Florida Civics tested benchmarks. This video covers: • John Locke & Baron de Montesquieu’s influence on the founding fathers – Locke’s ideas on “natural rights / law” & the social contract as well as Montesquieu’s ideas on “separation of powers” & “checks and balances” • The influence of that the Magna Carta, Mayflower Compact, English Bill of Rights, and Thomas Paine’s Common Sense had on the founding fathers with concepts such as limited government, rule of law, social contract, rights such as trial by jury are reviewed. • Events leading up to the Declaration such as British policies on taxes (Stamp Act), the Quartering Act, no taxation without representation, and ignoring colonial protests are covered. • The different sections of the Declaration of Independence are covered including the natural rights / purpose of government section and the “grievances” section • Weakness of the Articles of Confederation • The goals of the preambles with examples are covered • Separation of Powers and Checks & Balances • The Rule of Law, Sources of Law (Hammurabi, English Common Law) and Types of Law (Criminal, Civil, Constitutional, & Military Like most of the videos on Mr. Raymond’s Civics EOC Academy this video ends with a review “quiz.” Remember that the PowerPoint in this video as well as a variety of lesson plans and activities are available at Teachers Pay Teachers. Mr. Raymond’s Civics E.O.C. Academy was designed for students taking the Florida Civics End-of-Course (EOC) Exam. However, as many states are implementing Civics Exams, these videos will work for all students of Civics, US Government, and US History. Currently students have to pass a civics state exam in order to graduate in Idaho, Wisconsin, North Carolina, Arizona, North Dakota, Louisiana, South Carolina, Tennessee, and Utah – as well as state social studies tests such as Texas’ STAAR exam, as well as Virginia’s Civics SOL exam. These videos look at all of the civics benchmarks that will be tested on most state civics exams. As a civics teacher I have often looked for civics YouTube video clips to show my students. I hope these videos will serve as a supplement to lessons for civics teachers, US history teachers, US government teachers and their students. While they might be a little basic for AP Government students, they could serve as a refresher of basic concepts and content. I have also thought that these videos could help those who are going to take the naturalization test to become US Citizens. I have also been reached by parents whose children are taking Florida Virtual School’s (FLVS) Civics class.

Texas Loses Appeal As Supreme Court Rejects The State's Voter ID Law
 
00:46
The U.S. Supreme Court on Monday declined to hear an appeal by Texas seeking to revive the state's strict Republican-backed voter-identification requirements that a lower court found had a discriminatory effect on black and Hispanic people. The justices let stand a July 2016 decision by the 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals that found that the 2011 Texas statute ran afoul of a federal law that bars racial discrimination in elections and directed a lower court to find a way to fix the law's discriminatory effects against minorities. There were no noted dissents from the high court's decision not to hear the case from any of the eight justices, but Chief Justice John Roberts took the unusual step of issuing a statement explaining why the case was not taken up, noting that litigation on the matter is continuing in lower courts. Roberts said that although there was "no barrier to our review," all the legal issues can be raised on appeal at a later time. http://feeds.reuters.com/~r/Reuters/domesticNews/~3/1MowE9h_Mh8/us-usa-court-voters-idUSKBN1571YS http://www.wochit.com This video was produced by YT Wochit News using http://wochit.com

Coach Carter (5/9) Movie CLIP - A Better Life (2005) HD

Coach Carter movie clips: http://j.mp/1uycoKk BUY THE MOVIE: http://j.mp/Ke1srG Don't miss the HOTTEST NEW TRAILERS: http://bit.ly/1u2y6pr CLIP DESCRIPTION: Coach Carter (Samuel L. Jackson) assures his group of high school players that he will do anything to help them get to college. FILM DESCRIPTION: The true-life story of a coach who tries to teach his players that there's more to life than basketball is brought to the screen in this sports drama. Ken Carter (Samuel L. Jackson) was once a star player on the Richmond High School basketball team in Richmond, CA, and years later, after establishing himself in publishing and marketing, he returns to the school and to the team as the new basketball coach. Carter quickly sees that his work is cut out for him -- the team is having an awful season, and their fights off the court are more decisive than their play on the court. While Carter wants to make the Richmond cagers into a winning team, he also wants a lot more -- to teach the boys to respect themselves and one another, and that they must excel in the classroom as well as in the gymnasium. Under Carter's guidance, the team turns their losing season around, with the state title a genuine possibility. However, when Carter learns that a number of his players have let their grade point averages slip below 2.3, as mandated in a contract he entered into with the students, he decides to lock the team out of the gym and send them into study hall until their marks improve. Carter's plan quickly becomes a subject of controversy among parents and team boosters, and their objections are soon picked up by the local news media, many of whom are not sympathetic to Carter's belief that his players must have goals beyond college ball or the NBA. Coach Carter also features Rob Brown and Rick Gonzalez as members of the team, and R&B diva Ashanti in her film debut as the girlfriend of one of Carter's players.

Civics EOC State Exam Review Part IV

This PowerPoint, with activities, and lesson plans are available @: https://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Store/Mr-Raymond-Civics-Eoc-Academy This lesson is to provide test preparation for the Florida Civics E.O.C. Exam and to be used as a review for the test. This is part IV of IV videos that cover of the Florida Civics tested benchmarks. This video covers: • Forms of Government (Direct Democracy, Representative Democracy, Monarchy, Oligarchy, Autocracy) • Systems of Government (Federal System, Confederal System, Unitary System, Parliamentary System) • Three Branches of Government (Enumerated Powers) • Different Levels of Courts – Federal Courts & State Courts • Federalism – Enumerated / Delegated Powers, Concurrent Powers, Reserved Powers • Amendment Process – Federal & State • How Laws are Passed • Comparing the U.S. Constitution to the Florida State Constitution • Three Levels of Government Services Remember that the PowerPoint in this video as well as a variety of lesson plans and activities are available at Teachers Pay Teachers. Mr. Raymond’s Civics E.O.C. Academy was designed for students taking the Florida Civics End-of-Course (EOC) Exam. However, as many states are implementing Civics Exams, these videos will work for all students of Civics, US Government, and US History. Currently students have to pass a civics state exam in order to graduate in Idaho, Wisconsin, North Carolina, Arizona, North Dakota, Louisiana, South Carolina, Tennessee, and Utah – as well as state social studies tests such as Texas’ STAAR exam, as well as Virginia’s Civics SOL exam. These videos look at all of the civics benchmarks that will be tested on most state civics exams. As a civics teacher I have often looked for civics YouTube video clips to show my students. I hope these videos will serve as a supplement to lessons for civics teachers, US history teachers, US government teachers and their students. While they might be a little basic for AP Government students, they could serve as a refresher of basic concepts and content. I have also thought that these videos could help those who are going to take the naturalization test to become US Citizens. I have also been reached by parents whose children are taking Florida Virtual School’s (FLVS) Civics class.

Donald’s New Border Plan Shakes Washington Swamp, Sends Undocumenteds Scrambling
 
02:49
NEW CHANNEL: http://bit.ly/2L14Ltz - TODAY NEWS We will gradually switch to this new channel, and post next videos here, subscribe to this new channel to watch the latest videos. Thanks. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Donald’s got a new plan to fix the border problem—it’s so outside the box, Democrats are in an uproar. Former Marine Andrew Tahmooressi made international headlines in 2013 when he accidentally made a wrong turn and crossed into Mexico with his legal firearms. Mexico’s zero-tolerance gun policy led to the Marine’s immediate detainment. Tahmooressi was then jailed, beaten, and given little food and water by Mexican authorities for seven months. As the illegal immigration debate rages, many on the Left are demanding that the Constitutional rights of non-citizens be honored. Democrats are specifically demanding that those entering the country illegally have their due process rights respected. But where were Tahmooressi’s due process rights? He was imprisoned immediately, and when he did finally get his day in court it was by no means quick. The Mexican system of justice doesn’t even call for a trial by jury. The President has had enough of this ridiculous double standard and is calling for zero tolerance against people who don’t respect our laws. From Reuters: President Donald Trump said on Sunday that people who enter the United States illegally should be sent back immediately to where they came from without any judicial process, likening them to invaders who are trying to “break into” the country. His proposal drew immediate criticism from legal analysts and immigrant rights advocates who said it would violate the U.S. Constitution’s due process provision, which applies to citizens and non-citizens alike. Do you find Patriot Journal articles helpful and valuable? Then comment with your thoughts below, and share this story with your friends and family! While it’s true that some Judges have ruled that illegal immigrants have due process rights, many other legal scholars disagree. Conservative commentator Dinesh D’Souza stated during an interview with Fox News that, “Citizenship is a kind of bargain among citizens of a country, and it comes from a social contract with certain rights and responsibilities. The whole idea of letting non-citizens vote and shape the governmental process falls outside the social contract. They need to go through the citizenship process, become citizens, and then they get the protections and benefits of being a citizen.” Democratic lawmakers understand this, but simply don’t care about illegal immigrants doing the work necessary to become citizens. They don’t care if these individuals obey our laws or understand our Constitution. The Left just want their votes. Illegal immigrants have taken advantage of our generosity for far too long. When you violate a nation’s laws, regardless of whether you’re a citizen or not, you have clearly forfeited your right to be treated Constitutionally. The President is right in demanding they be sent back. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ ◆ Latest news videos: https://goo.gl/BmTYua ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ ★ CONNECT WITH US ★ ◆ Google+: https://goo.gl/HHKysp ◆ Email: quylao0711@gmail.com ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Videos can use content-based copyright law contains reasonable use Fair Use (https://www.youtube.com/yt/copyright/)

Court efiling fees debated in Texas Senate Jurisprudence Committee
 
10:41
Legislature after legislature is dealing with the question of efiling in state courts as courts themselves grapple with the subject. In December 2012 the Texas Supreme Court issued an order effectively mandating efiling in civil cases in the state's trial courts (except justice court) over the next 4 years. The question then turned to funding for efiling: should an efiling fee be put on the filing of each document filed, or as a lump sum one-time addition? And which would allow for enough funding to implement the system? SB 1466 of 2013 as introduced would opt for the one-time only fee:$15 added to civil filing fee in probate, county, and district courts and Supreme Court; $5 addition for criminal convictions from the justice, county and district courts. As came out in testimony, the amount will likely need to be increased to $20 in the form of a committee amendment later. The fees would go to a Statewide Electronic Filing Fund, appropriated to the Office of Court Administration and the Supreme Court, for the electronic filing system. Testifying on the bill was the Chief Justice Wallace B. Jefferson and David W. Slayton, Administrative Director of the Texas Office of Court Administration. The bill was debated, and left pending, in the Senate Jurisprudence Committee on March 19.

Virginia School System Goes Too Far in Mark Denicore's School Truancy Case 1/2
 
15:17
Judge sets trial date in Loudoun school-tardiness case By Emma Brown Amy Denicore helps her daughter Daisy, 7, with a school project. (Astrid Riecken - FOR THE WASHINGTON POST) Amy and Mark Denicore are headed to a full-blown trial to defend themselves against charges that they violated Virginia law by making their kids late to elementary school too often. The Loudoun County couple was arraigned Monday morning in juvenile and domestic relations court. Judge Pamela L. Brooks set a trial date of March 14. The Denicores are each charged with three Class 3 misdemeanors, each of which carries a maximum fine of $500. Their three children, ages 6, 7 and 9, have been late to school almost 30 times since September. Most of their tardies were three minutes or less. Their case has sparked debate about whether the school system is overreacting to a minor offense or rightly clamping down on a habit that's disruptive to teachers and other students. (Column | An absurd case: The punishment should fit the crime) The Denicores — both of whom are trained as lawyers — argue that whatever one's opinion of their parenting, the county has no legal authority to convict them of a crime. They are charged under the state's compulsory education law, §22.1-254, which says parents have to send their kids to school "for the same number of days and hours per day" as school is in session. Another statute, §22.1-258, clearly spells out how school systems must proceed in the case of chronic absences when there is "no indication that the pupil's parent is aware of and supports the pupil's absence." Neither statute specifically addresses tardiness. The Denicores said they will move on March 14 to have their case dismissed. If it proceeds, they plan to subpoena a handful of witnesses to testify, including their kids' teachers and principal. In court Monday, Brooks told the couple that similar trials are generally scheduled for 12-15 minutes, but there is no time limit for arguments
