You will prepare and submit a term paper on Bill of Rights, the Amendments, and the Administration of Justice and Security. Your paper should be a minimum of 2250 words in length. The first amendment states that a person’s beliefs and religion are to be respected. The Bill of Rights specifically states that there would be no law against the practice of any particular religious belief, custom as well as the establishment of any religious order. The Bill of rights also specifically states that any person is entitled to freedom of speech as well as the right to assemble and ask for petitions from the Government for any grievances made (“The US Constitution Online”, 2006). This amendment applies as long as the person is of legal age and he or she does not harm any other person. The U.S. government treats the first amendment as one of the most important amendments made as it is believed by the administration that this will set an example to other countries in the provision of freedom and liberty regarding a person’s beliefs and customs. (“National Security”, 2006). This amendment treats religion as a free choice granting a person the freedom to join and revere a religious group or not. With this, the government’s plans to line in religious practice alongside peace and justice will lead the way to a more harmonious existence between the government and the populace.
There is a multitude of religions that are established in the United States and U.S. citizens enjoy much freedom to choose their religion given that they are already of legal age. They may also choose not to join any religious group or order. In universities and other institutions, religion is not compulsory for students and employees thus freeing people from the pressures of religion on what they can and cannot do in their lives. The latest current U.S. government administration emphasized the creation of laws that are centered for the enrichment of personal honor and the protection of human rights which includes freedom of the press, freedom to choose religions, the exercise of conscience and religious assembly, and association (National Security Strategy”, 2006).
The privacy of a person is the main focus of the fourth amendment of the Bill of Rights. In this section of the Bill of Rights, people have the right to secure anything (papers, personal effects, and other personal property) in their private residences. Their properties are thus protected under law against any unauthorized searches and seizures. Search warrants are only issued when violations are made especially regarding the possession of illegal goods and substances. Seizure of illegal goods and substances will only commence when a sworn affidavit is made against the owners but until it has been proven, any residence could be monitored in accordance with the law. (“The US Constitution Online”, 2006). Privacy has always been regarded as a major issue not only by the Law but by the citizens themselves. Every person is entitled to his or her own privacy and to intrude or breach someone’s privacy only entails trouble. Although this is the case most of the time, the government can sometimes break this law under dire circumstances especially when the whole country is .distressed due to some sort of national emergency involving security threats (“National Security”, 2006).  .
