Hate crime What distinguishes a hate crime from other crimes is an underlying motivation based on the victim’s group membership. There has been much debate over the constitutionality of hate crime laws and which groups (if any) should be protected by such legislation. Those against hate crime laws argue that it is a violation of First Amendment protections of free, association, and freedom of thought. The Supreme Court confirmed that freedom of thought is implied by the First Amendment in R.A.V. v. St. Paul which those against hate crime laws argue makes such laws unconstitutional.
The Penalty of Mary Surratt How would you discipline someone who took part in a murder? Would you give them a death sentence, maybe a life sentence in prison? Mary Surratt was charged with death for her involvement in the assassination of Abraham Lincoln. Although she may not have known about the murder, she was already going to aide in the kidnapping of the president. Therefore, Mary Surratt deserved her death penalty due to her actions in the murderous plan of Abraham Lincoln.
The article “On Punishment and Teen Killers” written by Jennifer Jenkins is an article with very weak ethos. The author argues that teens who commit heinous crimes should receive life without the possibility of parole and that the victims rights should be considered. The author is a victim of a crime committed by a teen, her pregnant sister was brutally murdered by a teen gunman who wanted to “see what it felt like to shoot someone” (2). By bringing her sister into the paper the author lowers her credibility because she is emotionally connected to the case and has an obvious biased opinion. This leads to the readers to question her reliability on an unbiased opinion in the article.
Mary Surratt is said to be known as a part of President Abraham Lincoln’s assassination. After Lincoln died, investigators began looking for people who were part of the plot. They found Mary Surratt, since her son was one of Booth’s conspirators, and questioned if she should be hanged. Is Should Mary Surratt be hanged? Yes, Mary Surratt should be hanged because she has enough evidence to say she was involved in the assassination plot.
From this piece of evidence, it is obvious that this killer is more than just a madman, and may instead be a calculated killer. This leads us into discussing the possibility of the killer not being eligible for the protection of the Eighth Amendment but being eligible for the death
The article "Then let no man but I/Do execution on my flesh and blood" point outs the law of Rome authorizes father 's power over his children that mainly cause the death of Mutius, Lavinia, and the threatened killing of Tamora and Aaron 's baby. Emily Detmer-Goebel says, "When Titus kills Mutius, he is not only demonstrating his own loyalty towards Rome, he is also enacting the ancient Roman right of the father to 'give or take life ' from a rebellious child", which I disagree with. I think in the death of Mutius, Titus does not play a role of father, instead he is the man of Emperor who has the duty to protect Emperor 's dignity. Without his duty, Titus cannot take away his son 's life by his own willingness.
In the Christian faith, the 6th Commandment states that “Thou shall not kill.” In the United States of America, the government legally killed over a 1,000 of its own citizens since 1976, and there are nearly 3000 inmates on death row waiting for their execution currently. As a nation, America has been unable to stick with one stance on many issues. There have been amendments banning alcohol, and others making alcohol legal. Many states have pushed to make abortion illegal, but still willingly kill their own citizens.
This practice of killing has caused many issues in a lot of countries, including our home, the United States. The death penalty is used to punish those that have committed repugnant and capital crimes, and there are many ways of execution for these guilty prisoners. In my opinion, implementation is not justified punishment in any way possible. Therefore, no person, even with high authority, should have the right to determine another's life-based on that person's crime.
She froze. … And his response was to brutally kill her,” Howe said. “The defendant 's actions are clearly the type of case the death penalty was made for.” Miller also kills 69-year-old William Corporon, and Corporon 's 14-year-old grandson, Reat Griffin Underwood, at the Jewish Community Center in Overland Park. The author reveals, among Miller 's witnesses was his 39-year-old son, Frazier Glenn Miller III, who testified he doesn 't know where his father learned about “hating Jews and about hating other

he death penalty deters criminals and makes them think twice. This would happen because if they do something really horrible they won’t do it the first place. According to “Death Penalty Focus : Innocent and Condemned to Die: The Story of Greg Wilhoit” “A second trial was held in 1993, but after the prosecution presented their case (without the bite mark evidence) the judge issued a directed verdict of innocence and Greg was cleared of all charges.(Condemned 2016)This means that the trial had second thoughts that helped Greg win the trial. The article “Capital Punishment” claims that “ President Bill Clinton signs the Violent crime control and Law enforcement act that expands the federal death penalty to 60 crimes including 3 that don’t involve
Radeler and Traci L. Locock conducted their own research. They titled it “Do Executions Lower Homicide Rates?” In 2008 they sent questions to some of the top criminologist and one of the questions found that “eighty-nine percent of the criminologist don’t think that the death penalty is effective.” (Radeler , Locock 2009 pg. 501). The American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) is one of the key fighters trying to get rid of the death penalty.
