Have you ever wondered what happened to the Nazi guards alive during the Holocaust? Former Nazis to this day are still being prosecuted, but should they really be? Nazi guards should not be put into jail anymore for many reasons. First, Nazi guards wouldn’t have been able to stop the massacre from happening.
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.
The streets and committing crimes is all they know and have grown used to. Another advantage is that the law can deter offenders who have already had two felonies from committing another crime. This is where the rehabilitation comes in place. The three strikes law seems to assist with steering offenders away from committing further crimes because following the second conviction there may be a reminder of what will happen if the felon commits another criminal act his or her freedom will be taken away and will receive a prison sentence of a mandatory twenty-five years, or worst, a life sentence. The thought of serving a life sentence may be the reason that some change their lifestyle and stop committing crimes.
The idea of taking away a criminal's right to vote has been around since ancient Greece and Rome. A condition called "civil death" in Europe involved the forfeiture of property, the loss of the right to appear in court, and a prohibition on entering into contracts, as well as the loss of voting rights. Civil death was brought to America by English colonists, but most features of it were eventually abolished, leaving only felon disenfranchisement intact in some parts of modern America. The United States is one of the world’s most unyielding nations when it comes to denying the right to vote to citizens convicted of serious crimes.
He also shows that 18 year olds can vote and go to fight in wars but they can’t drink beer. This along with many reasons is why we should treat 18 year olds as adults and trust them to be responsible and make good decisions. Some laws concerning minors don’t make sense. This is shown in the article “What is The Age of Responsibility?”
Multiple citizens may believe it is best for America’s safety to have these individuals in jail for life. On the other hand, we should focus on what is best for the country as a whole. This may include giving a second chance to those who have committed crimes in the past. Adolescents should not be sentenced to life in prison without a proper trial, due to their maturity level, they will change as adults and should be given a second chance.
1.) After reading New Jack: Guarding Sing Sing I found most interesting that half the time Conover is in danger and scared for his life. But he must learn how to deal with the inmates and survive the spine-chilling conditions. With the United States prison population reaching a record high of over two million inmates, the system was in a crisis. It was more likely for an African American in California to go to prison rather than attending a state university.
In Cold Blood written by Truman Capote is a nonfictional story based, on a actual murder of the clutter family. In the story the author 's doesn 't really take a stand on for or against capitol punishment, however it does provide some reason or fact on why the judge at the time sentenced them to death. first we need understand that story take place in a 1960 's and at the time they didn 't have the type of criminal justice that we have now where you get sentence to life and can receive parole for good behavior while being in prison. In that time, they didn 't have parole or probation. you was practically hang or sentence to prison and release in the general population. Furthermore only the rich had the chance to buy their way out of the
In “Letter From Birmingham City Jail”, Martin Luther King, Jr., he talks about how he was put in jail for peaceful protesting “In any nonviolent campaign there are four basic steps..” (King), which is part of civil disobedience. Civil disobedience can be necessary in certain circumstances where there is absolutely no other way that things can be handled. There is not a whole lot of reasons that it should be used today but back in the day it was
He also states in the article that if the state had assumed that they were not safe they should have been kept in for a longer period of time. He wrote the article “Never going Home: Does It Make Us Safer? Does It Make Sense? Sex Offenders, Residency Restrictions, and Reforming Risk Management Law.” based on the information that he stumbled upon while doing many research and observations; Mr. Caleb who is an attorney at LLP mainly focuses on civil and commercial litigation.
Felony Disenfranchise laws have taken away the right to vote for people who have been convicted of a felony, currently or previous. Some communities’ political voices are not being heard. Most states, with the exception of tow, Maine, and Vermont, have enacted laws that do not allow incarcerated inmates to vote. While other states permanently ban felons from ever voting again, even after completing parole, probation and paying fines. Maine and Vermont are the only two states that allow incarcerated prisoners to vote, while in other states, once you complete parole or probation your right to vote is automatically restored.
The prosecutor of this case said “he would have given a whole life term if the defendant had been an adult but as a child he was not allowed to pass that sentence” (Duell, 2014). The reasoning the prosecutor could not pass the sentence was due to the laws and regulations of the country where this crime occurred. However, if the crime would have happened in the United States, the state of Texas to be exact, and if I was the prosecutor, I would have definitely charged the juvenile as an adult and sentenced him any where from 30 to 99 years with a possibility of parole. I would have done this because like I mentioned in the beginning the murder was premeditated. As far as resources go, because the criminal had a disturbing mindset, but was only diagnosed with autism and no other mental disorders, the resource I would recommend would be some sort of counseling that deals with intervention involving treatment for behavioral
US Entry Waiver You cannot enter the United States of America if you have a criminal record in your past. The only way to enter the US with a criminal record is if you have the appropriate immigration status or if you have U.S. Entry Waiver. There may have been instances in the past where you or someone you knew with a criminal record got in to the United States without any issues but now the chances of that happening are reducing. Now the INS (U.S. Immigration and Naturalization Service) does not only ask a few general questions about your citizenship and the purpose of your visit. They conduct an RCMP search which is basically a computer search for a criminal record.
The overrepresentation of men and women of color, and people incarcerated for drug offenses are the effect of some changes that were made in the list forty years. Most of the people who are in prison are in prison for a reason, and that reason is because of sentencing policy. It is worth mentioning the jail and prison is sometimes the answer, however it should not be the answer for some low-level offenders. The recent laws and policy are the reasons why the prison and jail population have increased, and why people stay for longer.
