This may result in wrongful convictions or acquittals and as a result, would severely undermine the efficacy of any justice system. People may start to lose trust in the justice system in meting out fair and impartial judgements, resulting in a total disregard of the justice system. In the contexts of crimes carrying the death penalty, jury tampering can have serious ramifications. The irreversible damage done to the accused’s family due to the wrongful convictions cannot be fixed with any sum of money. With Singapore’s strict anti-corruption stance, cases of corrupt judges would hence be rare.
Comey believes police officers have the right to be forceful when confronting a suspect. He also indicates that videos of police brutality should not be posted or distributed in any way. Not do only this sounds absurd, but it also sounds as though it is not significant if some of the people who are arrested are also brutally treated. If police officer can be abusive and treat their suspect roughly then they would be breaking Section 1 of the Fourteenth Amendment, “nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws” (US Const. amend.
Administrative Detention is any arrest of individuals by the state without a trial. This is mainly used for security purposes for people such as terrorist. Even though they have racial profiling laws, people who are not white are more susceptible to be humiliated and targeted. Having racial profiling be a problem, “will inevitably lead to an erosion of the public’s civil rights” (Kaenel). This being that citizens will have rights taken away from them and would lose the trust of those that the community count on the most to keep them
There are many ethical reasons why gun control should not be implemented towards law-abiding citizens such as it is hypocritical, neglects the reality of control, and is discriminating against gun owners. Gun control, in addition to be hypocritical, also contradicts the protection of human lives. For instance when looking at the argument for gun control it comes down to this: every human life is valuable, killing someone is immoral, guns can kill people, so create laws that decrease access to weapons. Gun control activist strive to push that guns are one of the main causes for death in the
In jail, there is no freedom and not having freedom is not something an innocent person should suffer. The second reason Tom and Huck should have told the police that Injun Joe killed Mr. Robinson was that Injun Joe should not have been able to run the streets a mad, malevolent murderer. If Joe was capable of killing Mr. Robinson surely he could kill someone else without a second thought. Murderers shouldn’t be able to run free because they feel as if they got away with it, that it’s ok, or that they could do it again and get away with
"Moral desert" is just a philosophical notion that a person deserves something based on his or her actions, and it is not cleared up by equality retributivism because equality retributivism calls for us to "behave barbarically to those who are guilty of barbaric crimes" (Nathanson). Another example of this is imagine a rapist. It would be barbaric and morally unacceptable to rape the rapist. Even though it may seem that those who kill should be killed themselves, it really isn't moral and is not universally
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. I do not agree with not punishing people who do wrong things. I feel that no matter how big the crime or infraction is, there must be punishment, if not then society will keep breaking the rules, and then we would live in an unsafe world, we would not have a sound mind, and be able to function,
The most important weakness of this policy is that it offers grounds for dirty cops to utilize force illegally to pursue selfish personal agendas that are not in the interests of the public. A police officer can use deadly force and allege that the use of force was necessary when indeed it was not and since there are no effective ways to measure such allegations such officers will end up going scot free. The police officers are supposed to be each other’s keepers and prevent their colleagues from misusing the authority given by the policy while officers who break the law can be charged in court. However, this is not guarantee that such authority will not be used illegally. Another weakness is that cases of mistaken identity can lead to harm to innocent civilians who are suspected of being
Restricting the use of Racial Profiling Imagine going through Transportation Security Administration (TSA) and being stopped and treated unfairly just because of the color of your skin and the way you dress. Imagine being stopped at a red light for no particular reason besides “driving while black” or being Hispanic and getting asked to show the officer your “papers” or a green card. Racial profiling has always been prominent, but is very unjust and a violation of people’s civil rights. Racial profiling should be performed in certain medical circumstances, such as giving out precautions about a disease that’s predominant amongst a certain race, rather than knowingly acting on a whim or irrational fear. Though racial profiling is used
I mentioned a few reasons on how the use of force has made police officers look bad. It is making officers look bad because recordings from the public only show the beatings and shootings, but do not capture the beginning of the confrontation. It will be bet for officers and the goof being of the community I officers use body-worn cameras because it will capture every second that happens between confrontations. The use of force is granted to the officers if they feel like the suspect is dangerous or is not complying with the officer. It was a right given to them by a case back in 1985, in which a person was killed by deadly force.
Wilson in an alley and instructed Mr. Wilson and P to “stop the vehicle. Turn the engine off. Roll the window down.” As MOS Viar approached passenger side of the vehicle, P held the passenger door preventing MOS Viar from opening the door. Then, Mr. Wilson was able to get his vehicle out of the alley and drove off and MOS chased Mr. Wilson again. MOS had called for backup.
