Surprise! It's Part 1 of the Lex Rex Institute Podcast's Independence Day Special!
Perhaps NOT surprisingly, we went way, way too long on time when recording this episode, so we decided to split it in two. Part 2 will be released tomorrow, on Independence Day itself.
In this part, we will give you a handful of reasons you should be grateful that America is now independent from Britain (things like: courts not allowing the police to use evidence against you when they obtained it illegally, knowing when the next election is for the chief executive, and not having your silence held against you when you’re interrogated) and also discuss the final ruling in 𝐾𝑒𝑛𝑛𝑒𝑑𝑦 𝑣. 𝐵𝑟𝑒𝑚𝑒𝑟𝑡𝑜𝑛 𝑆𝑐ℎ𝑜𝑜𝑙 𝐷𝑖𝑠𝑡𝑟𝑖𝑐𝑡 and why the media – as well as Justice Sonia Sotomayor – seem to be confused about what the Supreme Court actually does.
Tune in tomorrow for our discussion of the Declaration of Independence and the sacrifices made by the men who signed it.
