The Eighth Amendment states that punishments should be fair and cannot be cruel. In the summer of 2012, Supreme Court ruled that juveniles who have committed murder cannot be sentenced to life in prison without the possibility of parole because of violation of the Eighth Amendment. However, young adults or juveniles should be given life without parole when committing a serious crime. If teens can commit crimes knowing there will be consequences then they should be prepared to face them. Many juveniles will fight against receiving jail time by saying, they are depressed, or have not reached a full level of maturation.
The exclusionary rule is a deterrent against searches and seizures. Any evidence that is gained through an illegal search or seizure is now inadmissible in criminal proceedings, per the exclusionary rule. Supporters of the exclusionary rule argue that it helps prevent illegal searches and seizures against law enforcement. Those against the exclusionary rule argue that the exclusionary rule keeps criminals out of jail and there are other preventative measures such as suspending police officers without pay, dismissing them from a case, or in extreme circumstances terminating employment of officers who violate the Fourth Amendment. The Fourth Amendment of the Constitution protects all citizens from unreasonable searches and seizures from all government officials.
I agree that abolishing the mandatory part but not abolishing the whole Juvenile Life Without Parole sentence because I believed that there are cases when a juveniles should get Juvenile Life Without Parole while there are juveniles who should not deserve it. Some deserve it because they non-repentance killers or to be serial killers while other should not deserve it because of the circumstances required them. Juveniles who killed people without any mercy should be treated as an adult and be given Juvenile Life Without Parole(JLWOP). For example, the murderer of Jennifer Jenkins’ pregnant sister and her husband. Jennifer describes, “[Jenkins’s Sister] begged for the life of her unborn child as [the killer] shot her.
When Donny is performing poorly at school, the school contacts his parents to attend a conference to discuss Donny’s behavior. Tyler portrays irony with the character of Donny’s mother, Daisy, as Daisy herself is a former school teacher, so it is ironic that her child is failing at school as she should know better than other parents how best to help her child succeed academically. Daisy tells the principal that they are concerned about Donny, but that “he tells us he doesn’t have any homework or he did it all in study hall. How are we to know what to believe?” (3).
“Kids know Nothing about racism. They’re taught that by adults,” say’s Ruby Bridges. Ruby’s life at home, how her education impacted her family, how her education helped, the stress she was going through and how she fixed it, and her life after school.

Although the actions of the students of the Sayreville hazing incident suggests that they thought and acted as adults, this incident of their high school careers should not be used to ruin their future in colleges and life. As most of the students who were involved in the hazing were minors, they could be tried in a juvenile court and have their records closed. According to the New York Times ‘s article on the matter, it stated “A conviction in adult court results in a criminal record, and generally, longer prison terms” (DOYNE). If the students were tried as adults, they could be faced with longer prison sentences and have a criminal record. But whether they are tried as adults or juveniles, teenagers convicted of sex crimes are required to register as sex offenders for at least 15 years (Michon).
Have you ever lost a loved one with with complete and utter surprise? Did you see them one day, then the next they were just all of a sudden gone? Was it tragic?

Also, she wants the record (data) from Thomas and DDS, she said she wants to compare it the progress from my house’s system, and I need to prove it with something significant with the school system .Miss Wendy told me that six month is not enough time to the school show his progress, and I told her I would not want to wait more, and I told her that I felt as if my son was going to babysitter, once I saw the teacher note saying what he ate and drank only, without telling me what he learned or is learning, I also told her that I not mean that the school is bad, I believe so that he has more chance to learn in another school. She told me that CCCD does not offer speech therapist, I would have to pay separately, then I told her that I will find out about it. Also, I said that Vinny wants to sit on the lap of the people, and she told that she saw in the classroom the teacher sits on the chair behind him and he lean back, I mentioned that I saw too, when I went to visit the school with my husband and the
I was the outsider of the town I grew up in. My coach suggested I quit the last week of the season because of the tormenting. Approximately 160,000 students stay home from school due to bullying and I became one of them. I would try to keep my doctor 's advice in mind, “breathe in, breathe out.”. Then one day I was asked to babysit a young girl with the sweetest smile.
Not effective as some commit crime either way. This was the rationale behind “short, sharp shock” detention centre regime for young offenders by Mrs Thatcher’s Conservative government in the early 1980’s (PENAL SYSTEM CAVADINO 3RD ED). Then there is general deterrence which is based on the idea that offenders are punished not to deter themselves but to encourage others not to commit crimes. This does not seem successful as well, as England has more prisoners proportionate to its population than most other countries in Western Europe. Also, reduction is prison’s populations, such as for example, West German prison population in the 1980’s, did not lead to an increase in major crime (Feest, 1988; Flynn,

In every system there are flaws. The criminal justice system is no exception. A major flaw that occurs is the problem of wrongful convictions. Around the world, innocent people are incarcerated and sometimes even executed for crimes that they didn’t commit. The United States of America is known for its high number of overturned cases due to actual innocence.
