my mans was riding side in the whip with his boy and they got pulled over. duke got knocked for a shoty and pound oh kweed.

my dunnny had some e but it was hidden and they didnt find it during the initial search.

now he got court this week, and there is still a posiblity that they might find the e or that they have.

so i ask, how can he get out of this shit?

whose car is it?
and who takes responsibility for the items taken?

if nobody assumes that its theirs, the judge wont let either of them off.

most likely they will be charged on the basis of what the police have found.

as for the e thats still in the car. Your friend can plead that he didnt know about that. this will only be considred by the judge, if your friend didnt lie about the other stuff in the first place.


sum up
1) your friend must prove he had no idea about what his friend was carrying with him.
2) if your friend had the items, he should say he was guilty of possession.,
because if they find the e, he can pledge that he didnt know about that stuff.
If he lies, he is perverting justice even more and wont come out lightly.



but put more facts about the case out.

yo i got this buddy, dude is out of his gord.


kid gets real fucked up, and constantly is driving. never been in some shit though till this one night. ends up totally fucking his car up, nailed a lightpost, took out electricity for part of a neighborhood. ends up taking off through the woods to his house, cause it was nearby. the cops end up stopping him and he makes up this story that some kid "pete" was driving his car and he didnt know who he was. so the cops put out an apb on this dude pete and in the meantime dont breathalize my friend or do any of that shit. the next day by the time they figure out he was lying, they couldnt do shit to him. he ended up with a lane violation ticket. sadly kid ended up totally another car the same way. somehow got no dwi for that either. and still drinks and drives. hes gonna really have to fuck himself up before he stops though. but thats the life the kid wants to lead.

It is needless to mention that the law involves everybody to various degrees in whatever country or state they happen to live in.
Law seemingly determines our freedoms and limitations (ironic) and also upholds justice and 'reasonableness' in society.
Perhaps a better view to see law is to say that we are free to do as much as what we want to, in respect as to what the law hasn't illegalised.
Another point to mention is that, when we talk of law, like here now, the written and practicality of law can become very different.
When i say written law, i mean the "know the ledge" reasoning of law. Because I have seen with my own eyes that not all individuals involved in the
judiciary are just, neither interested in societal balances, but merely to ensure selfish expediences (get paper,crib,whip).
As for answering LHX's important question.
"How do /we/ reconcile law, with the quest for knowledge?"
As i have mentioned, we are free to do what the law permits us to do. If we break the law, we are subject to the discretions of authorities.
We see in history that at times certain "knowledge" were not allowed and made unlawful to pursue. That is why authorities burnt books or took away courses and
professors at universities.
But, we can also see the limits that law has put on knowledge today, when wee see how government bodies (CIA) may hide knowledge to protect the nation. "national security"
it is debatable whether all information hidden by certain bodies are in the best interest of society, but as far as the law is concerned, it is ruthless in ensuring that the document of law is followed.
Perhaps the above just illustrates the harshness of the practicalities of law. This is because everybody interprets the use of Law in different ways, owing to the wide usage of the law.
We have Contract Law, International Law, Family Law, Compnay Law etc etc etc.
Here i suppose we are just trying to focus on the simple term "law" with a simple dictionary meaning.
I want to mention some notions of law, which further bites on LHX's question but leaves room for others to say something as well.
1) law is a tool for the elite to rule the lower classes.
2)law provides man with his unconditional freedoms. such as freedom of speech.
3)without law, society will be tyrannical.
4)law is a universal term which cannot be explained by words itself, it can only be exhibited by action.
5)who REALLY makes the law?

i'll be looking back here again, just trying to finish some work

Peace,

your question will need knowledge of the law specifically for the your country and in particular in the state you live in and are in now.

Police can issue a statement of arrest for you to a police department in any state. its the role of that state police then either to arrest you or not, relating to the law in that particular state. short answer YES you may well be able to get arrested in any state in your country. albeit, depending on your crime.
if you are outside america or country of residence, then you are less likely to get arrested as you will be subject to the laws of another country. you will be a diplomatic case.


as for general warrants for arrest. they are usually discretionary, meaning that the police can arrest you if they have a reason to. the only authority to challege what the police have done is the Courts itself.


its hard to answer your case as i need specific laws for your case, i just gave a general answer to your situation.

yeah i tried cambridge also, trinity college. i had aab requiremnt but they said nope.

in the end i got abb and didnt get into kings. i was fussed but brunel turned out to be great for me. a lot of mates went there.

when you pick both cambridge and oxford your only allowed 4 which is gay and you got to take some stamford test. a lot of maths questions and stuff. If you only pick one your allowed 6, but since both rejected me i can now apply for 2 different uni's, so i picked Queen Mary and UCL. UCL dont do my course so i picked Medical Physics jus to waste some space on my application. A lot of my mates if they get in will go to brunel but i dont think they got the brains to go there. In my school there me and sum other kid who was gonna do medicine. For my AS levels i got 5 A's and 1 B for maths, got A's in physics business design tech and turkish got the B for Maths.

in the usa we are protected against unreasonable search and seizure, the 4th amendment to the constitution, the supreme law of the land...

a traffic violation is not grounds for a search

did they consent to the search?

how did the traffic stop lead to the search of the car?

this step is very important...

if you can convince a judge that the search was illegal and unconstitutional, everything they found "doesn't count", and your case will be thrown out

if you gave consent, you forfeited your rights regarding unreasonable search

an approach for your buddy with the shotgun might be to refer to your constitutional right to bear arms (2nd amendment)...

i am not a lawyer, but i know the illegal search angle works...

i got a weed posession case dismissed because of it... and i didn't even hire an attorney...

directly for your case...


Chemical Test Refusal: A driver who refuses to take a chemical test (normally a test of breath, blood or urine) can receive a driver license revocation and must pay a $300 civil penalty ($350 for a driver of commercial vehicles) to apply for a new driver license. A driver who refuses a chemical test during the five years after a DWI-related charge will have their driver license revoked for one year and must pay a $750 civil penalty to apply for a new driver license.

this is specific for NYstate.

thats true.

they need a reason for a search.

perhaps they already were in a position whereby discretionary powers allowed the police to search the vehicle.

thing is, there are little facts of case to make a proper statement.

california traffic law > modified Exhaust "fix-it" [correctable] ticket

basically, from word of mouth, i have to take my muffler tip off and replace it with a quieter one to meet state dB (decibel) level and have a CHP/police officer sign off the ticket after showing him the work done. back of the ticket says i must bring in the paperwork/receipt that i got the stock muffler put on AS WELL AS the cop signature to get ticket signed off

what if i just get it signed off by a police friend and bring it to court. when they asked for the papers i'll just say "the officer did not inform me to bring the papers to court, i apologize, sir, i shouldve known to bring them along"
what do you think/know?

Prince Rai
04-27-2006, 05:24 AM
TO EVOL


basically they want a receipt for where you got the muffler installed because,

//Any person holding a retail seller's permit who sells or
installs an exhaust system, or part thereof, including, but not
limited to, a muffler, in violation of Section 27150.1 or 27150.2 or
the regulations adopted pursuant thereto, shall thereafter be
required to install an exhaust system, or part thereof, including,
but not limited to, a muffler, which is in compliance with such
regulations upon demand of the purchaser or registered owner of the
vehicle concerned, or to reimburse the purchaser or registered owner
for the expense of replacement and installation of an exhaust system,
or part thereof, including, but not limited to, a muffler, which is
in compliance, at the election of such purchaser or registered owner.//


basically, the place you got it from ought to install an approved device or give you any money back if there were excessive costs for getting an approved device fitted it. (subject to conditions).

that is why they would want the receipt.

if you dont have it, then well you will have to show to the judge that you got a police sig, and if you got a friend whos with the police, he/she could help you in preparing what to say to the Judge.

Personally i think you should be fine, aslong as in the end you install what your State wants.

peace prince RAI

howdo u claim bankruptcy in the uk
and any pitfalls or other info :D
peace

well the answer lies in whether it involves a personal case or whether a company is trying to claim it.

if its a company soul, then there are two tests for you.

1)whther your company cannot pay its debts because there is not enough money in the bank

and

2) company with liabilities (or what it owes) that exceed its assets (such as property, inventory or what it is owed).

usually, companies dont turn out as bankrupt in UK itself.
they go into liquidasation etc because creditors get more if bodies sell the company out in "business ways".


IF its personal,

usually you will be offered various services to help you out!
especially in the UK, the government would want you to try and solve your problems than to claim bankruptcy.

if nothing else works, you will need to get into contact with a local magistrates court who will explain whom to contact.
although you will be in the Courts discretion, a government body or maybe creditor themselves, will petition your bankruptcy.

peace,

i hope i gave some light to this.

well the advantages of bankruptcy is that creditors will not be able to make contact with you or make demands for payment directly and you can look forward to being debt free within 3 years with the potential for the bankruptcy order to be discharged within 12 months.

i guess the first part where creditors cant come directly to you, is one side of bankruptcy that could suit you. if you dont pay debts, creditors cant do too much. you will be in the discretion of the government and courts.

you should also consider some disadvantages soul,
like there will always be a stigma whereby your credit score will be bad, and therefore banks etc wouldnt want to deal too much with you.
also there could surface a "ripple effect" where other people will get affected by your filing for b.r.

HOWever, as you have minimised your assets etc, things ought to be easier for you with bankruptcy/

basically you go to your local county court, or magistrates court.
preferably county court.

there you got 2 fill out this form where you mention your current assets and debts and stuff.

the court will then take the form and advise you 2 a governmental body who will try and help you out.

the less assets you have the more less you lose.


thing is, you have to mention your income etc, and if they have grounds to suspect that you could potentially pay back your debts, they will make u choose other options than bankruptcy.

you should definitely go to your county court and ask the people there who deal with your application

well if they know you have a well paid job, they will on your behalf talk to your debtors to find out whther you can receive a better plan to repay your debts.

My Question Is When Can I Legally Kill A Man?

this sounds vague, but in legitimate warfare, hint at word legitimate, it is "legal" on the grounds of the reasoning behind war.

denaturat
05-05-2006, 02:22 AM
WHEN CAN YOU LEGALLY KILL A MAN:

Actually, you can legally kill a man in self-defence, but only in a circumstance where killing him would be the only reasonable thing to do. So if a dude trespasses on your lawn, you can't kill him. If he's choking you, you can't kill him cause you should have really kicked him in the balls. Although this is complicated, for the most part, you can't even kill a bastard who is in the process of killing your mom.

But if wake up in the middle of the night all alone in your house and some dude with a black ski mask is trying to tax your wu-cd collection, you can cap his ass with impunity.

POLICE SEARCHES

police can search you when they have reasonable probably grounds to believe you committed a crime. that is, they can seach you if they are going to arrest you. if they are not going to arrest you, they cannot search you, adn cannot even ask you for your ID. so for example, a random shakedown on the street is illegal, just becasue the cop thinks you may have drugs on you, cause your cap is backwards. again, this depends on specific laws, but these tend to be general principles in common law countries, ie US, UK, Canada.

if you are searched illegally, you can claim your rights against unreasonable search and seizure were violated. in US I believe there is a "fruit of a poisned tree" theory. any evidence obtained pursuant to illegal search and seizure cannot be admitted. so if cops searched you on the street for no good reason, and found weed or a weapon, that evidence may be excluded.

again, this is a general principle. other than exclusion of evdence, courts may grant other remedies. however, it is not likley that they will punish the cops in any way

- nah I ain't passed da bar, but I know a little bit...but seriously, ain't passed it yet, so don't rely on anything I say lest I get slammed with "practicing without a license." peace.

:learning:

i agree with the search part of your answer.

the answer to your "murder" part is also good, just, self defence is a very difficult topic and usually the courts are very conservative over it.

with most killings, other defnces are used as opposed to self defence which is usually not believed or is held not to be sufficient enough to explain the killing.

Here you can get off on manslaughter if you kill a guy you catch with your wife on the spot also if a homosexual tries to hit on you.

As for my accounting. I am half way through a degree majoring in Finance and Accounting. So pretty much most basic accounting stuff I am familiar with. It's not as helpful to the average person as law. I only take a couple of business relevant law subjects.

It possible, although highly unlikely. This all depends on the facts in a particular case. A few seemingly minor facts can result in completely different decision. The rule in Canada (maybe US too, law in N. America is similar in many respects) is that if you can prove that you acted in the heat of passion upon sudden provocation, murder is reduced to manslaughter. But a lot has to be proven, so in cases of husbands finding their wives in bed with someone else, successful reduction to homicide, would be an exception rather than the rule. As I said, however, I only studied criminal law in law school but never practiced it.

yep, the only influential or most likely defence for the scenarios given, is the defence of provocation.
In the UK, this defence is often used cheaply and believed very cheaply.
That is why the Law Commission over here are trying to reform the laws on homicide over here, to resemble systems such as the one in the US in regards to the grading of murder etc.

well, manslaughter is still a serious charge and you can get life, or minimum 4 years, in the joint

yes you would. you are only justified to use reasonable force in defending yourself. you are not alowed to chase anyone after your property and cause them any physical harm if they are fleeing. this is not a case of self defence, so no, you would not be able to fire a shot at him. If you actually shot him and killed then you would be charged with murder. If you don't kill him you would be charged with assault using a weapon.

If you did not intend to shoot him, as you said, but intended to fire in the into the air, but the bullet injured or killed the thief, you would be held criminally negligent and could get (in Canada) up to life in the joint or minimum 4 years.

Furthermore, even if you did not shoot the person, but shot in the air, depending on the gun laws in your state, you will at least be charged with discharging a firearm in a public place (could be a very serious charge), and illegal possession of a firearm (all depends on local laws). Of course if you shot a dude those charges would also be tacked on and probably dropped during pre-trail negotiations, aka plea bargaining.


this is an oversimplified answer to a very complex (and interesing) question. anything more detailed from an expert in criminal law will cost you a couple of hundred $/hour.

Princerai? you may have something to add since crim is probably more fresh in your mind - I'm more of a business law type.

you are absolutely correct with what you have said.
you will be more familiar with the laws in N.America than i would, but generally it is true...

1)if you shoot a man whose running away from you, that is not self defence as the threat posed to you is not imminent.
2) and as said, if you shoot in the air with no intention to kill anybody, but for some reason you do, this would be manslaughter as "specific intent" to kill is not there, but your recklessness as to where you are shooting may be enough to cover "basic intent" which is part of manslaughter.

my mans was riding side in the whip with his boy and they got pulled over. duke got knocked for a shoty and pound oh kweed.

my dunnny had some e but it was hidden and they didnt find it during the initial search.

now he got court this week, and there is still a posiblity that they might find the e or that they have.

so i ask, how can he get out of this shit?

if the drugs where is plain sight while they were pulled over, say in a transparent zip lock bag on the dashboard of the passenger seat, then this is not a vilation of search and seizure provisions. If the drugs where in plain sight, this is a reasonable probable grounds that you have more drugs and that point they can search your car and everyuthing found is admissible. if however, you got pulled oever for speeding or somethin of that sort and the cop tells you to step out of the car and searches it, this is an illegal search and whatever is turns up during the search is likely not admissible in court.

what is necessary to claim soviergn tribe status?

i havent studied this area of law.
mainly because it is US law, and that sovereignty as seen here is such that the Law in the USA does not explicitly explain tribe status.

i gathered this from this website http://www.ptla.org/wabanaki/sovereign.htm ,

the website ought to give you the basic information you need.

if any part of that website seems confusing, hit me back.. perhaps some others have more insight to this. (denaturat)

Yo what happened to The US legal system when we went bankrupt in the 1930's? What does the gold fringed flag with the eagle on it in the courthouse mean? Does Common Law still exist? What is Admiralty Jurisdiction?

Common law does still exist.

a definition from google would probably be more helpful than this, but common law is just law made through precedent. Any nation with a court system practices common law as far as i know.

but i mean, common law isnt "binding" so it has a limited function anyway.

I am from England, a Common Law country. The CL is still very much at large here. It is basically as Sean has mentioned, a system of law based on precedents.

What is precedent?

When a judge decides a case, his judgement stands absolute for future cases of similar facts. Unless of course a higher court feels the judgement was incorrect.

The good thing about the CL is that unlike statutory(paper)law, CL is flexible and can adapt to societal standards etc. However it may be inefficient if it cannot be identified which precedent reigns supreme as it is an ancient standard.
