“Also during this period, Johannes Gutenberg invented a functioning printing press that allowed books, including Bibles, to be printed at a faster rate thereby making them more available, cheaper, and accessible.” (The Church in Moral Crisis: Prelude to the Reformation) Gutenberg’s printing press allowed cultural diffusion to happen at a quicker rate. Cultures mixed and literature was spread quickly, allowing books like the Bible to be accessed easily. Without Gutenberg’s printing press, books would not be so common and the way learning in schools is today would change drastically.
The people believe that they are powerless to the government but if all the people were to realize what was going on around them they could stop all the wrongs being done. Mildred, like everyone else, would rather stay cowardly and be guilty with society
The practical use for this amendment was obviously needed because the punishments used back in those early times was much more aggressive and cruel. The death rate that came with the amount of these punishments was out of hand, and obviously now we don’t see any cruel punishments like they used to. There are still cruel punishments but the amendment made them more suppressed and reduced the number of them drastically. The Amendment was a safeguard for the American people.
Although, this tactic does not always work, it can cause some problems. Officers are supposed to use the tactic when there is a suspected criminal, but if it turns out there is no criminal it can cause many problems. Officers do not need to persuade the innocent because then the cops are just creating crime witch is the opposite of what they are supposed to do. The main point of this article is that it wants to make the structure and the frame work of the entrapment system clearer and more precise. The article identifies ways to make entrapment more stable and clearer.
During this time, the penalty for the murder of another person was not consistently punished in one way. For some people, murder would be punished with a public execution for the entire community to see, while for others they could get away with murder completely free of any punishment. At the time the punishment often depended on the social class of the killer and the social class of the person that was killed. In this situation, social class was less of a factor since the Prince get Romeo off easy since the person that Romeo killed was the killer of Mercutio, who is related by blood to the Prince in this quote “And for that offense immediately do we exile him hence... My blood for your rude brawls doth lie a-bleeding; but I’ll amerce you with so strong a fine that you shall repent the loss of mine.”
It is hard to separate the cases between instrumental aggression and bias motivation. I think not every bias motivation reflected as hate crime or breach the hate speech law. In some time you have the ability to like some one or not, so hate crime law could make many problems **** instigate retaliatory attacks. In conclusion, society would be better with more control and more law to live in an organized and pleasant community of humanity. Hate speech law does not prevent of exercising the freedom of speech but it has been found for reduce using freedom of speech and minimize making problems to other or causing harm to them.
Double jeopardy is the sole reason why some criminals walk free. The justice court is fallible: ineffective representation or perjury testimony would ultimately cause a wrongful conviction. Wrongful convictions are a concern of everybody, the families of the victims or the lawyers
Hammurabi’s code was created to protect the weak, when in turn the laws did more harm than good. Hammurabi’s code was unjust, because it did not take into consideration of everyone’s story. Also, the victims were not treated equally, because your social class would change the punishment of the crime. Lastly, he made it to where no one could change his laws, even after his death.
This is because Danforth feels that if he is lenient with his decisions, it looks as though he is weak and being unfair to the rest who did not get postponed. Since Danforth has authority over the rest of the court, John Proctor is later executed due to Danforth signature. Additionally, he uses the number of cases he has had in court and the amount he has put in jail as a number to hold over peoples heads. The number Danforth claims is a point of trying to scare those who may being lying and show that Danforth is merciless. He tells the open court, “And do you know that near to four hundred are in the jails from Marblehead to Lynn, and upon my signature?”(81).
There’s something to be said about good intentions, but good intentions don’t do anything if your actions are bad. Looking at it Teiresias’s way, it would almost be better if you did it on purpose, because then you would be halfway done with his steps. All you would have to do is “repair the evil.” But it’s not like that. In the courts, motive in a murder is a big factor in deciding your sentence.
Most commonly these methods are used in unison good cop/bad cop, the good cop pretends to save the suspect from the bad cop saying things like just tell him what he wants before it gets worse. The suspect will hopefully find comfort from being saved and confess sometimes confessing to even more than he/she was questioned about. Although these interrogation methods seemed a little like trickery it still is far better than tactics once used such as torture of suspects to make them confess. These methods include psychological as well as physical torture.

Back to the case of the murderer, is it more ethical to serve the prison sentence or is it more ethical to stay and take care of the child who has no one else. And how lying about the murder case can benefit the

The king hit law has had both positive and negative impacts on society. Some examples of the positive impact of the new legislation include the ability of the law to ensure that the punishment fits the crime, meaning that it reflects the standards of the community, and that it is only lenient when leniency is due. The legislation also assists in deterring would-be offenders thus decreasing the crime rate. According to New South Wales Attorney General Brad Hazzard: “In Sydney we’ve seen a massive reduction in violence and my view is sometimes the strict technical legal positions have to be modified by common sense that goes beyond legal technicalities.” This has an obvious positive impact on society, as less crime improves the attitudes and the quality of life of the members of the public.
I don 't agree with the way the Committee of Public Safety was being operated and how they solved problems, like cutting peopleś head off,but the way they solved their problems was effective, and it protected their country against their enemies. The Committee of Public Safety was keeping all people who were against the French Revolution away from the country. They were keeping people who seemed suspicious of treason away from France, to protect the revolution which was its job. I don 't agree with the idea that death is the answer to every single problem, there were less violent punishment they could of did more of like jails and slave work because violence isn 't the only solution. Altogether, I do believe they were successful at
