No Marshmallows, Just Term Papers
The dual court system in the United States operates in two levels. The state handles all state affairs. The federal courts handle all federal cases, with a few exceptions. Each state has a state level court on their own.
The United States court system is one that is used as a model for other countries. For example, Mexico has one similar to ours, and Japan has one too! Britain has one like ours but they do not have one that can declare a law unconstitutional like our supreme court. Of all the things that stand out with our, (United States), courts system, are rights given to our accused. The Miranda rights are unique, and so are the rights guaranteed in them. Also some of the things that aren’t punished to severe in the United States are punished severely, such as adultery, and shoplifting. (Schneiter, UNK) In countries like Iraq, where they are starting to use a democratic process, they have been known to kill over adultery. Also it is common to hear of hands, or digits being cut off for stealing. The only thing that comes close to that is that, some states in the United States still have the death penalty. The Federal government still does it, but it has been many years since it has been used. A case in which it could be used in is the case of Nadal Hassan, the Major in the Army who is accused of killing 13 soldiers in Ft. Hood.
