children have a parent in jail. In the Dallas-Fort Worth area alone, 72,000 children have lost a parent due to incarceration (Amachi, 2016). Due to the fact that the size of the problem is growing “and its tendency to impact already vulnerable children signals a need to clarify both the unique needs and challenges shared by these children as well as the individual qualities and circumstances that mediate the effect of parental incarceration” (La Vinge, Davies, & Brazzell, 2008, p. 2). Unfortunately, children who suffer from having an incarcerated parent are too often invisible to policy makers and social service organizations. Nature and Scope of Concern
It’s A Slippery Slope If you’ve ever set foot on a ski slope, you know how chaotic it can be; people of all different abilities, from novice to expert, whizzing past each other trying to get to the bottom of a ski run. To help control some of the chaos, ski resorts have put certain safety measures in place, like the skier responsibility code, to ensure that everyone on the slopes has a good time and stays safe. As much as these measures can help skiers and snowboarders avoid an accident, accidents do still occur. Collisions with trees and other riders are two types of accidents that can cause serious head injuries while skiing or snowboarding, and this is where a helmet comes in.
1-Does the Department of Human Services (DHS) child protective branch provide a system that positively impacts children in their care? Yes, in some case child protective services do prevent fatalities and abuse. They remove children from horrific situations but the process after the removal is questionable. 2-Is it ethical to pay foster parents to care for children temporarily but charges astronomical amounts for to parents desiring to adopt them?

The Child Witness And The Proceedings Before The International Criminal Court Uluslararası Ceza Mahkemesi Önünde Çocuk Tanıklar Abstract: Children suffer harm by becoming victims of international crimes during armed conflict. Together with the United Nations Security Council, both under their own mandate, the International Criminal Court tries to protect the child victims of armed conflict under international law. As a result of children’s presence in the conflict area, child victims often become witnesses of international crimes. The involvement of those children as witnesses in international criminal proceedings is a new development.

While the state of Mississippi, my home state, does provide for the expungement of juvenile records, the actual process of expungement is rare. The reason for this is the state laws, which govern the sealing of all juvenile records. Even though the state law calls for the sealing of juvenile records, juvenile adjudications can be taken into consideration, by judges of the circuit courts, when determining sentences. This records can also be used, and disseminated to others, usually by court order of the youth court. Section 43-21-263 of the Mississippi Code of 1972, provides for the sealing of all juvenile court records, once a person has reached 20 years of age.
Some juvenile cases can be transferred to adult court through a process called "waiver”. Usually juvenile cases that are subject to waiver involve more serious crimes and incidents.. Although being tried as an adult has its pros and cons. A juvenile being tried as an adult has more constitutional protections then a juvenile case. However there is more potential for a more severe sentence and the possibility of serving time in an adult correctional facility.
You brought up a subject that does not get enough attention as it deserves- the affect of incarceration on families. There is always lots of discussion and debate in the media about crime, victims of crime, police, and prisons. I do not think we hear nearly enough about the detrimental affect that incarceration has on families and communities. These effects can be great and long-lasting. Like you mentioned, one negative result is the loss of income from a missing, incarcerated parent.
The film Dear Zachary, directed by Kurt Kuenne, makes an argument in response to a very specific situation: the murder of Kuenne’s best friend Andrew Bagby and Bagby’s son Zachary, both killed by Andrew’s ex-girlfriend Shirley Turner. Kuenne argues that bail should be denied to anybody accused of a serious crime who also has custody of a child. While this argument is reasonable, it only provides a solution for very narrow circumstances. For the greater protection of society as a whole, an expanded version of Kuenne’s stance on bail laws is necessary. Bail should be denied not only to people accused of a serious crime who have custody of a child, but also to anybody suspect of a violent crime.
We get notified on our phones, television's, and even on the radio sometimes that there is a missing child. This system has saved the lives of so many children. This notification is called an Amber Alert. You would think that this would have always existed but it didn't even take effect until the late 90’s. Even after that it wasn't nationwide until later down the line.
American sexual offender laws are one of the most polarized debates in the media, off late. Many opponents claim that the United States have the strictest sex offender laws in the whole world, which does no good to the community at large because the staggering number of sex offender registries screen the deadliest offenders. They argue that these American sex laws need a drastic reform, as these violate the human rights of the offenders. They further claim that these laws are implacable and not reasonable, simply because most of them are so called low rated offenders. Unfortunately, such critics of sex laws are willing to overlook the trauma of the victims or survivors, not to speak about the horrendous killing of those like innocent Megan,
Casey Anthony was found not guilty in the murder of her two year old daughter. But with all the research and facts that I have found Casey should have been found guilty. With the evidence that I provide will prove that Casey should have been guilty and charged with first degree murder of Caylee Anthony.

During the 18th century Enlightenment the concept of rights, classical criminology, came into play. This was a time before law was “relational and obligational” (Classical). These ideas can be traced back all the way back to John Locke and Jean Jacques Rousseau with “life, liberty, and property” (Siegel 92). With classical criminology comes four basic elements. First, “people in society have free will to choose criminal or conventional solutions to meet their needs or settle their problems” (Siegel 92).
