Rawls affirms that “there are two basic principles that define a “just” society” (p. 117). These two concepts are the liberty principle and the difference principle. The liberty principle states that “we should all be willing to agree to a system of rules which guarantees each person the free exercise of basic liberties” (p. 117). On the other hand, the difference principle states that there should be a “fair equality of opportunity” (p. 117). Nonetheless, our criminal justice system should have both of these principles, instead it is inequitable.
Justice is a way to prove someone is rightfully or wrongfully doing something in that time of event. If someone steals something and someone notices, that someone will try to bring the person who had something stolen from them justice because it was wrong. In “The Reeve’s Tale”, a short story in The Canterbury Tales by Geoffrey Chaucer, the miller is stealing food from people. So two students want to bring justice to the college professor who had food stolen from him. Allen and John, two students from the town, bring justice to the professor by going through several series of events over the course of their adventure.
One of the deepest instincts we have tends to be revenge. But usually the instincts and emotions that we have serve for a purpose. Many theorists consider revenge as a way to establish justice and that a revenge threat might serve as protection, a type of implementation of social collaboration. (Larocco, 1) Perhaps revenge has a purpose to prevent certain hostile activities or the revenge threat protects people to not harm them in the future. However, occasionally individuals consider revenge when their actions have no good outcomes, other than to cause suffer on others.
This case involves the unlawful intentional theft on the part of three employees of POP 'S Barbershop.

Based on these actions, the police officer suspected the two men were actually casing the store for a robbery. Viewing their actions, he decided to approach the two men. The officer identified himself as the police and asked the men for their names, and at that point they mumbled a few
In his adulthood, John continues to learn how to perfect his criminal behavior by befriended professional bank robbers, Harry Pierpont, and Homer Van Meter, while he was imprisoned. They thought him the art of precision and strategic planning while robbing banks, which resulted in creating the most organized and deadly bank robbing gang. Growing up during the Great Depression Era is another factor that may have provoked John's bandit attitude. Even though his dad owned the local neighborhood grocery store, John believed that he was deprived of money, inducing his engagement in criminal
By what level of severity must the action be for the law to feel the need to step in and control the person whom is committing the deed? Gregory: That’s simple; that man stole a couple of clothes from the store, so he is being sent to court. The judges will decide whether or not he is sent to jail. I’d say he will allegedly likely be punished for his actions. S: I see.
It has instilled and derived a fear, a fear which prevents me from going about my day as candidly and carefree as I once did. But I do continue to live, because I know that the law will ensure the individuals who present such cowardly acts will be brought to justice. Witnessing the repercussions first hand has only fuelled my determination to broaden my understanding of the law because it simply isn’t acceptable. One should not be deterred from sitting next to a Muslim on public transport, nor should the norm of Muslims being associated with terrorists continue. Hence, studying law is pivotal in changing certain social attitudes towards individuals, law manages to permeate every part of today's world; it colours many areas of life and is very much integrated with, and affected by current affairs.
According to theory the outcomes will be judged weather the action was morally right or wrong. As per this theory the outcome of any action should minimize the pain and maximize the pleasure. The utilitarianism have two groups one is the Act utilitarian’s focun on the effects of individual actions (Such as Nathuram Godse’s assassination of Mahatma Gandhi) and another is rule utilitarian’s those focus on the effects of types of actions (such as killing or stealing) Utilitarians believe that the purpose of morality is to make life better by increasing the amount of good things (such as pleasure and happiness) in the world and decreasing the amount of bad things (such as pain and unhappiness). They reject moral codes or systems that consist of commands or taboos that are based on customs, traditions, or orders given by leaders
They want to make sure when punishing an immoral act, there is benefit to society. Shaw says this because utilitarianism does give established laws and reasoning behind them. Shaw also says that Utilitarians say that our system of punishment as it functions, succeeds in rehabilitating many convicts and discourages them from future mistakes. his reasons for saying this. I think that Utilitarians favor exploring the alternatives because doing something to someone, even a criminal, who has committed a heinous crime, morally wrong, and two wrongs do not make a right, it is setting the wrong view for society.
