Eligible for execution : the story of the Daryl Atkins case by Thomas G Walker( Book )

6 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in English and held by 402 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book examines the decision of the U.S. Supreme Court in the case of Atkins v. Virginia. It is the story of Daryl Atkins, who at the age of eighteen participated in a tragic and senseless murder. It is also the story of the victim of that crime, Eric Nesbitt, a young man serving in the U.S. Air Force. The book follows the Atkins case from commission of the crime through the Supreme Court's ruling and its aftermath. Along the way, the story involves law enforcement officers and prosecutors who apprehend and convict criminals as well as defense attorneys who ensure that those accused of crimes are fairly treated. It discusses the roles played by trial and appellate court judges applying criminal statutes and interpreting constitutional provisions. And it also examines the involvement of citizens as witnesses, jurors, or members of organizations with special interests in civil rights and criminal justice issues

Political factors influence judicial decisions. Arguments and input from lawyers and interest groups, the ebb and flow of public opinion, and especially the ideological and behavioral inclinations of the justices all combine to shape the development of constitutional doctrine. Drawing on political science as much as from legal studies, Constitutional Law for a Changing America helps students realize that Supreme Court cases are more than just legal names and citations. As always, Epstein and Walker account for new scholarship as well as reconsider all excerpted cases for both additions and
