Question 29 of 30 0.0/ 15.0 Points
Briefly trace the history of due process from the adoption of the U.S. Constitution to the present. The Fifth and Fourteenth Amendments of the United States Constitution both limit the power of the federal and state governments to discriminate against an individual. The 5th Amendment has an clear requirement that the Federal Government not deprive individuals of life, liberty, or property, without due process of the law and an implicit guarantee that each person receive equal protection of the laws. The 14th Amendment clearly prohibits states from violating an individual's rights of due process and equal protection. Equal protection limits the State and Federal governments' power to discriminate in their employment practices by treating employees, former employees, or job applicants unequally because of membership in a group, like a race, religion or sex. Due process protection requires that employees have a fair procedural process before they are terminated if the termination is related to a "liberty," like the right to free speech, or a property interest. The Bill of Rights basically gives protection against only the federal government but not the state government. And the 14th Amendment's due process clause changed that this for a reason. Today, courts still defined due process differently, for example, some rulings concentrate on procedural due process, challenging that due process guarantees a fair procedure when determining cases. Many scholars suggest that the Bill of Rights organized a strict guide to follow when making sure the people are protected from the government and that the 14th Amendment affirms that the same applies to individual states as well. A great example of such is in 1932 when the United States Supreme Court made a ruling in the case of Powell v. Alabama: The defendant was denied due process while in his trial proceedings in the state of Alabama. Also in Brown v. Mississippi, 297 U.S. 278, (1936), was a United States Supreme Court that also determined that a defendant’s right to Due Process Clause of the 14th Amendment was also violated when to police violently beat a confession out of the defendant.
