The Crime Scene Investigation (CSI) effect might also affect the verdict of the jury. The American jury system should not be used because of it not being cost-effective, the lack of experience of the jury, which leads to justice not being served, and the CSI effect impacting the
Disclosure was opposed by the district attorney on the grounds that it would have a “chilling effect” on the witnesses, who are promised anonymity and also pressure on the prosecutor would pile up for pressure from public to deliver a certain result if secrecy was no longer sacrosanct. It is the secrecy that shield the grand jury from any kind of accountability with public is simply led in suspicion as to the techniques and prejudices that lead to a deliberation behind closed doors. In another case where Shabbir Ali Mirza was jailed by a majority in U.K. was alleged bias on the pretext that he presented evidence through an interpreter
There are jurors who can make a decision who is right or not. The jurors are the reflection of the society who comes from them. Atticus states: “I am not idealist to believe firmly in the integrity of our courts and in the jury system. That is no ideal to me; it is a living, working reality… Gentlemen, A court is only as sound as its jury is only as sound as the men who make it up.” As Atticus knows that white community has some prejudges about black people, he assumes the jurors will find Tom Robinson guilty and Atticus loses. The important detail is in the jury that all the jurors are white people except for black people.
Judges were required to judge impartially regardless of the statuses of the accusers (Ex. 23:26; Deut. 1:16-17). To maintain pure justice in settling disputes, the judges were admonished not to accept bribes because bribes blind the eyes of judges (Deut. 23:2-3) .
Further, the 8th amendment does not obligate the execution method be free of pain. Besides, those given capital punishment are “deprived of life”(Alito), so the meager pain they encounter is incomparable to the amount of pain he/she caused to the victim(s). In addition, there is not sufficient evidence that the use of midazolam causes induces a notable risk of severe pain that the death penalty should be outlawed. Judges agreeing with the majority opinion are John Roberts, Antonin Scalia, Anthony Kennedy, Samuel Alito, and Clarence
The problem is, people working at a National level are quite frankly ‘clueless’ on this topic and minimal contributions are being made. Not enough Indigenous representatives are a part of those communities and organizations. "The consequences of ignoring that now is more or less to say that perpetuating cultural appropriation of Indigenous culture in Canada is okay and has no real consequences, and it's untrue. It has real consequences” (Brault). As for the steps Canada should take, they should continue to bring awareness to the harm cultural appropriation has towards Indigenous people.
1. Aboriginals peoples should have their own court system because there would be no bias or over generalized stereotyping to skew decisions or sentencing. Aboriginals are overrepresented in our Canadian Court System. Alcoholism and crime go hand in hand. Alcoholism in Aboriginals unfortunately is a common problem because of colonization and social upheaval.
The accused are brought to trials, imprisoned, then and/or hanged. These trials are not fair and do not need proof. An accusation is enough to implicate an innocent person. Finally, by 1692, a suspension on the trials for witch craft was suspended by Governor William Philips of Massachusetts, some ministers, and clergy who believed that justice was not being followed. The accused were pardoned and
These nature of the punishment or judgment are made by selected panel of elders that are granted power and authority. They are few whom are selected on the basis of hereditary factors. The trial by ordeal is known as Bisha’a a custom that exists between the Sinai and Palestine Bedouin community. They have few selected mode of detection of the leis from the criminals. This protocol of lie detection are only used or enacted to the civil criminal as they involve harshest approach to determine the state of the respondent in the case being evaluated and no witness is willing to appear to testify in the case (Abu-Lughod, 1999).
Denying people of being in control of their life violates our basic rights as humans. In a court case in Canada, the supreme court declared that “the criminal law measures prohibiting the provision of assistance in dying unconstitutional.” (Palmer 191). Canada is a large country and they believed that the blanket ban they had violated the rights people are guaranteed in their constitution. They are right. Their constitution, as well as the united state’s constitution, guarantees the right of liberty and the pursuit of happiness.
That they are special because their actions have no repercussions? These proposals do not exist in the world since there is a well-established principle in society saying that everyone is accountable for their actions, so Charles I cannot be an exception. After thorough questioning of the defendant, taking into account his responses proves that Charles I is without questionable doubt guilty of the accused crimes. Please set aside the arguments raised by the defense today, which are inferior to those of the prosecution. At the conclusion of the case, we ask that the just ladies and gentlemen of the jury produce a verdict of guilty for the people of the United Kingdom.
Justice William Douglas stated that the sterilization of habitual offenders had no defined correlation to them procreating offenders. In addition, Justice Douglas argued that this act was also a form of discrimination that targeted minority groups unlawfully. In an argument concurrently with Justice Douglas, Justice Stone argued that the act was in violation of due process because it didn’t have a hearing on merely the basis of whether criminal traits are inheritable, specifically in Skinner’s
John Proctor denied to forget his sincerity in acknowledging his denial to deliver his life. Although he is sentenced to death and dies, he still sticks up for a trial of character, and succeeds. This piece of writing also works in an theocracy. Sworn in the name of God, both men and women, were charged and condemned of rehearsing witchcraft. In our civilization, people are not put on trial for similar conditions, but Puritans considered that witchcraft was an immorality opposing God and condemned by death.
Once someone steps in the court room to oversee a trial of this caliber (or any caliber) they must not and will not let the media dictate their perspective of events. Scott Peterson’s jury saw the burden of proof provided by the prosecution and were left with no doubt in their minds by their own deductions he was guilty. The Casey Anthony jury on the other hand took all of the evidence into consideration, but they still were not completely convinced she was capable of the charges being filed against her, leaving them no other decision but to provide a not guilty
In 2002, Canada followed Homeland Security of United States and came up with an immigration plan. The bill was called “Immigration and Refugee Protection Act.” The focus of the bill was to stop people entering Canada and seeking asylum who will endanger the safety of the Canadians. The bill introduced strict law for people who will try to put the life of Canadians at risk. The law allowed immigration to remove people from the country who may pose a threat to the country. It also allowed high financial penalties.
