Cindy Anthony contacted 911 and mentioned that she hasn't seen her two year old granddaughter for almost a month. She made that call on July 15, 2008 and also stated that she would like Casey Anthony charged with taking a vehicle and cash. Casey really found pleasure in lying to the cops and did not show any feelings about her daughter Caylee missing. The Florida grand jury accused Casey of false information to police four times, aggravated child neglect, homicide of a child, and first degree murder. These charges were on October 14, 2008. Just a few months later on December 11, 2008 Caylee's remains were found in an area of thicket not far from the Anthony home. Casey Anthony was going to be facing the death penalty for the murder of her daughter, Caylee on April 14, 2009. Since there was a lot of attention with this case the jury was picked from a neighboring county by the name of Pinellas, but the trial took place in Orange County where the offense happened. During the trial the jury was confined until the case was completed (Hails, 2013).

In 2001, director Antoine Fuqua released the film “Training Day,” starring Ethan Hawke and Denzel Washington. Denzel Washington won a Best Actor award in 2002, from starring in this movie. “Training Day” is a crime film/thriller. Police drama, that involves a veteran officer, who is now a detective, taking a rookie, a former security guard, on his first day with the Los Angeles Police Department narcotics unit. In the movie “Training Day,” Alonzo Harris and Jake Hoyt are the two main characters’ names. For my Ethical Analysis essay I have chosen to compare these two characters. Their personalities, their actions, and the passion they have for their jobs are the main ways to compare the two.
The “heroine” of the short story Where Are You Going Where Have You Been written by Joyce Carol Oates has been interpreted in many different ways by many different authors across the globe. They all have their own opinions on why Connie had left her home and walked into the arms of Arnold Friend. Larry Rain makes the argument that Connie was a noble heroine that “chooses the side with the devil [to save her family]” (Rain Gale). It seems like a valid argument and paints Connie as a much more heroic figure than many believe, but it begins to fall apart once her character is actually examined. Through her actions and emotions, Connie shows traits of a passive victim by completely submitting to Arnold, being mentally broken by him, and by barely attempting to retaliate
Houston, Texas, was home to Andrea Yates; a wife and a mother to Randy Yates and their five children. One morning in the year 2001, she dialed, 911 breathing heavily into the phone “I need a police officer,” (O’Malley). The news over Andrea Yates drowning her children spread like wildfire across the nation, horrifying Americans. Following her confession, she pleaded innocent with the “Not Guilty by Reason of Insanity” (NGRI) plea, yet the jury rejected her appeal and found her guilty of five accounts of first-degree murder. However, in the retrial of 2006, Yates’ abiding murder convictions were overturned, and Andrea Yates was found NGRI. The change in her verdict instigated disputes whether Andrea Yates was in fact mentally “insane” or criminally aware of her acts and avoiding her consequences.

On July 15, 2008, Cindy Anthony announced that her two-year old granddaughter Caylee, had not been seen for nearly a month. Also, she wanted her daughter Casey Anthony taken into custody for robbing a car and money. Casey lied many times to investigators and displayed no emotion about her daughters disappearance. On October 14, 2008, Casey Anthony was arraigned by a Florida grand jury on first degree murder, aggravated child abuse, aggravated manslaughter of a child, and four counts of providing false information to a law enforcement officer. Later, human remains were identified as Caylee's on December 11, 2008, in the woods approximately a quarter of a mile from the Anthony residence.

Again, these factors can include age, race, sex, choice of residents, or even normal daily activities, such as traveling to work or school. This theory emphasizes that criminal victimization follows those who do not use their intelligence and rational thought in the social environments (Lifestyle, 2011). Empirical evidence has shown that risky lifestyle activities, such as drinking, using drugs, and frequenting bars or clubs, may put individuals, particularly women, at a higher risk of victimization (Henson, Wilcox, Reyns, & Cullen,
For many decades, the victim was the forgotten party in the criminal justice system as the main focus was that the perpetrator of a crime should be punished. But the victims of crimes stand poised equally in the scales of justice as the victim is not a passive object but an active component of the whole judicial process. The victim deserves similar level of protection and attention from the court like that of an accused i.e. a victim 's interests need to be balanced vis-à-vis that of accused. Victims of crime go through mental and physical trauma and suffer throughout their lives , as there place in the society changes. A victim is certainly entitled to reparation, restitution and safeguards of his rights and criminal justice would look hollow if justice is not done to the victim of the crime. In recent years, the Legislature and the judiciary have taken gradual steps to develop the necessary principles by which appropriate compensation could be paid to the victims of crimes. The gradual shift in the approach of the Supreme Court is a positive sign but other organs i.e. the government and the legislature have to make conscious efforts to consider the rights of the victims.
