Discussion Post





The U.S. Constitution has long held that to restrict a person’s freedom must require that the good for the government overarches those freedoms protected by the constitution. In Florida the state has argued that the need to protect the individual and the public in general is one of those overarching situations. Thus,  the state has passed both the Baker Act and the Marchman Act around mental health and substance abuse issues and or concerns.


Please read about both these pieces of legislation (Baker Act and Marchman Act) and take a side whether you agree or disagree that the personal freedoms of individuals can or should be disregarded or superseded by these laws. You must take defend your stance pro or con for each of these statutes. Each statute imposes different demands on individual rights and freedoms.


Please choose a position and post a 500 (or more) word discussion post outlining your position. Make sure to consider all sides of the prompt. This is worth 30 points. Then post two 250 word (or more) professional response to the posts of your peers. Each response (up to two) is worth 10 points. Research literature should be appropriately synthesized into all three of your posts.
