The Bill of Rights

Amendments 6 and 8

6th Amendment: What It Says

Rights to a fair trial
In all criminal prosecutions, the accused shall enjoy the right to a speedy and public trial, by an impartial jury of the State and district wherein the crime shall have been committed; which district shall have been previously ascertained by law, and to be informed of the nature and cause of the accusation; to be confronted with the witnesses against him; to have compulsory process for obtaining witnesses in his favor, and to have the assistance of counsel for his defence.

6th Amendment: What I Think

You have the right to a normal and smooth trial, you get to defend yourself and you also have the right to get a lawyer, and the trial has to occur in the state you committed the crime.

8th Amendment: What It Says

Bails, fines, and punishments
Excessive bail shall not be required, nor excessive fines imposed, nor cruel and unusual punishments inflicted.

8th amendment: What I Think

This right protects you from any harsh treatment or any harsh accusations.
