any way. Upon hearing this, Suzie decided that the school was trying to silence her first amendment rights. Suzie went on to expand the story to include what she had learned from the faculty advisor concerning what was, or was not, permissible in her school’s newspaper and went to the city paper to expose what the high school was working hard to keep the public from knowing.

In the article, it states that New Jersey, among other states, wishes to repeal the Professional and Amateur Sports Protection Act of 1992, in order to grant betting on sporting events, which has thus far been illegal due to this piece of legislation. I find that sports betting should be made legal for two reasons: 1) We already have the lottery, in which people are free to choose to throw their money away on chance. This has proved to be very beneficial for many states, as it funds programs ranging from education to the elderly population, depending on how each state chooses to spend the profits from their respective lotteries. 2) Although it is illegal at this point, many people still place bets on sporting events, from football down to the most obscure sports. As stated in the article, over 300 billion is spent on these bets each year. Most of these bets are made through bookies and through the funding of loan sharks, who can both be very dangerous groups of people. If betting were legalized, it would lessen the severity of related crimes and injuries to people who couldn’t pay their debts- it could even regulate the way betting was made, with cash up-front or through credit card companies, who as far as I know, do not cut off body parts for not paying debts.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
