Real Life Example

When I was younger, I was watching news with my parents. While I was watching along with them, their was a women that call 911 because her son stop breathing. When her son got to the hospital, he past away a couple hours later. When she came back home, her boyfriend was there. The police came later to her house because they think that her son was murder by the marks around his neck. While they enter in her house, they found her boyfriend’s phone and started going through his messages. When the police were reading his message, he was texting to someone about him murdering his girlfriend’s son. The son was murder because his mom's boyfriend was punching him on his stomach. When the police came up stairs and check the room, they saw her sleeping with her boyfriend. When he finds out that the police went through his messages, he was very angry because they went through his messages without asking or without a warrant. His girlfriend broke up with him because he killed her son. The police arrested him because he murdered his girlfriend’s son and was charged with murder.
