Rights Explained:

Most of the parts of this amendment came from the way the British treated the colonists.  Other parts have their roots in British law.  One example of how the British king mistreated the colonists was to take them overseas for their trial.  This gave the colonists, who the king did not like, a higher chance of being convicted then back in the colonies, where most people did not like the king.  That is why the founding fathers made sure that the trial took place in the area in which the crime was committed.  Today, we also have the right to an impartial jury.  This way they are not biased from the beginning.  Trial by jury was a well-working part of the British Magna Carta.  The accused has the right to a speedy trial, so the authorities couldn’t procrastinate till the person dies of old age.  The trial must also be public so nothing can be secret or conspiracies hatched behind closed doors.  The accused person has the right to be informed of the charges against him, and to have an attorney.  The accused also has a right to see the witness of the state and to call his own witness.  The 6th amendment protects the rights of a person accused of a crime.
