SS7R - Bill of Rights Project - 8th Amendment
posted by Laruen .
The Eighth Amendment to the United States Constitution is the part of the United States Bill of Rights prohibiting the federal government from imposing excessive fines or cruel and unusual punishments. Excessive hail shall not be required nor excessive fines imposed, nor cruel and unusual punishments inflicted. If someone sues me for more than $20, I have a right to a trial by jury. I cannot be given cruel and unusual punishment if Iâ€™m convicted of a crime.
Why should I have a right to trial by jury if someone sue me more than $20?
why am I not aloud to give cruel and unusual punishment if Iâ€™m convicted of a crime.
These are NOT hw questions those are questions that are ask by me. I'm just curious so I can understand.
A jury of your peers may be more fair than one judge.
The U.S. tries to be a moral, ethical, and humanitarian nation. Therefore the Constitution forbids cruel and unusual punishments.
Thank You! :)
I'm going to include that in my paragraph to make sure my ss teacher understands it better.
But don't worry I'm going to put it in my own words.
BTW - I'm going to post my project for you to check to see if it's good. For know I'm going to go over it (revise and edit).
