Discuss the Hierarchy Rule and the Petit Triple murder. The hierarchy rule requires for a law enforcement agency to count the highest offense and ignore all others, but keeping in mind that by this rule it does not affect the number of charges the defendant will be prosecuted by the court. It’s also, when you have a defendant charged with different offenses and the police agency will choose only the highest offense. For example: a person is charged with Driving Under the Influence of Alcohol, Driving with a Suspended Driver License and First Degree Murder. The law enforcement agency will choose the highest on the hierarchy list which is first degree murder and the agency will not report the other two because they are misdemeanors. Another great example of the hierarchy rule is the Petit Triple

Accused and Innocent Murder on a Sunday Morning, an award-winning documentary, effectively relays the events surrounding a murder trial that took place in 2000 in which 15-year-old Brenton Butler was the defendant. In his hometown, Jacksonville, Florida, this young boy did nothing unusual on the day of the murder; he simply woke up, fed his dog, and went to submit a job application. However, his life was about to be drastically changed. Police had already initiated their pursuit of a black man who had robbed and murdered a white tourist just hours earlier. Without any evidence against Butler besides his skin color, the police drove him to the victim’s husband, Mr. Stephens, who positively identified him as the killer. The investigation and interrogation that ensued were proved in court to have been mishandled by police: detectives threatened and physically injured Butler to obtain the confession they needed. Ultimately, the verdict was not guilty on both charges of armed robbery and murder. What originally appeared to be a solid case against Butler was a façade that defense attorneys Ann Finnell and Patrick McGuinness utterly destroyed. Murder on a Sunday Morning impugns the actions of police officers, displays how race affects a case, and demonstrates the effective use of articulate arguments.
In my opinion the law enforcement should keep going to find the unresolved homicide because if it was on of there family members they would want them to keep finding out who did it for justice.Just because it is not one of there own you still have to find out who did it because there are families out there still wondering who killed their loved one and they want that person to go to prison and stop them from killing someone else's loved ones.Even if it takes years for law enforcement to find there killer you have to find out who it was and if the family tells you just to give up then you can but overall it depends on the families.For example in the article “Open Cases: Why one-third of murders in America go unresolved” by Martin Kaste.He interviews a lady named Delica Turner and she said “ I think that the Police just give up”, her husband was murdered and they still haven't found out who it was.

This Law and Order episode brings up an interesting question as to how far corporations are responsible for how their products are used. After fifteen women are killed in a shooting using a gun that is easily converted from semi-automatic to full automatic, McCoy tries to convict the gun manufacturer, Rolfe Firearms. I don’t believe Rolfe Firearms was guilty of Second Degree Murder.
I personally believe in the concept of justifiable homicide, only when there is enough evidence to proof that the homicide was committed in self-defense. There have been many cases lately, were a person has won the trial with claiming that it was in self-defense. One famous case recently, is the
