Today we'll keep looking at Rights of the Accused (528-535) and the assignment we started Thursday in class. Find your notes from Thursday's class so we can move efficiently through it and finish quickly. 

When finished we'll continue to look at last Friday's assignment on the 8th Amendment and capital punishment. The following articles all address different aspects of the topic. Read one of them, then be prepared to discuss what your learned with others.
