With any agency or department under the criminal justice umbrella, it is vital that the vision and overall goals of their existence are to be responsible for supporting the will of the majority and protecting the privileges of all people. These principles are outlined in the Preamble of the U.S. Constitution which directs individuals who are associated with the criminal justice system shall “ensure justice” and advocate “domestic tranquility” (Cronkhite, 2013, p.297). Agency employees that work in the criminal justice system must follow concepts that exercise discretion, which are the decisions that can deny a citizen their life, liberty or property. These employees will enforce the law and preserve the constitutional rights of the public such
The defense counsels can argue against the safeguard of accused before they are proved guilty with support of constitutional safeguards. The law enforcement officers cannot harass the accused or defame the accused because they are protected by the amendments in the constitution. The 4th Amendment states that unless there is warrant the house or accused cannot be searched. The law enforcement officers need to take permission before arrest or searching the accused. Due to this amendment in the constitution the adult criminal can get relief before they are proved guilty.
Next, the checks and balances system are discussed and how it suggests regulations for the government. Jefferson makes a note towards the significance of independence and how it is ideal to allow the people handle it. Later, he states the release of the imprisoned or fined with the power of pardon. The case of Marbury and Madison is discussed and he states his ability to retain the commissions being transported. His final point is that the branches of government should be able to determine their obligation under the Constitution and not be concerned of the other
Gun Control On December 15th, 1791 our Second Amendment right was adopted. As stated in our Bill of Rights, "A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed." The right to bear arms is a right that every American deserves to have to protect themselves and to serve their families. However there are many that believe that because of mindless acts of violence that guns are to blame. The ill minded should not be the cause of the abiding citizens of America to lose their rights.
Gozon, Cherie Ann O. PhD Media Studies Media 210 While the main premise of both libertarianism and social responsibility is freedom, but the specific context as to what kind of freedom they uphold and its underlying conditions as to the press’ content, accountability, operations, and audience response are different. Libertarianism of the press encourages a high regard for freedom of the press to the point that they publish any information – be it good or bad – and trusts the audience’s mental capacity to distinguish facts and opinions from fabricated information. (Campbel, Martin & Fabos, 2012) This theory believes that the press has the responsibility to divulge all information – no censorship, whatsoever – for public consumption. It also believes that people have the mental capacity to understand and interpret media messages. Because libertarianism strongly pushes for freedom of the press, this theory makes accountability and ethics optional.
Therefore, colleges should definitely prevent people who have a background of violence and crime from speaking at their campuses for the safety of their students. However, this also means that speech that does not call for violence should not be prohibited, no matter how offensive it is. After all, when all of these historical standards are picked out and taken into account, what we are left with is the bare backbone of our nation’s philosophy: the freedom to express your true
He sought to demonstrate that it was cruel, unnatural, ungodly, immoral, and unjust. God and the forward march of history, Douglass believed, would bring the realization of truth, justice, and the brotherhood of man. As such, equality is not just necessary for the establishment of government but is also a requisite in maintaining a safe and stable nation. Most importantly, upon entering society individuals are required to alienate a modicum of freedom and liberty, but full equality can (theoretically) never be compromised. This, of course, will impact the state and inevitably require a
It is important for judiciary to protect its reputation and to regulate the media and do not allow it to become a fearless watchdog thereby attracting serious dangerous consequences of its activities. Also the law commission 200th report which gave certain guidelines for the regulation of media should be passed in parliament as it is still pending. Attorney General G.E Vahanvati told Supreme Court that the central government is actively Any institution, be it legislature, executive, judiciary or bureaucracy, is liable to be abused if it exceeds its legitimate jurisdiction and functions. But sometimes these ultravires activities are blessing in disguise as is the case of judicial activism. Media trial is also an appreciable effort along with the revolutionary sting operations as it keeps a close watch over the investigations and activities of police administration and executive.
The first benefit is it is certainty, predictability and security. Citizen may know the government’s response in advance and any action that is not written in the law can be undertaken by the citizen without fear. The second benefit is restriction of government discretion; citizens may worry that the government officials will excessively influence in their government action by bias, whims, passion etc. Law can be separated into two ways; the government has to conform and consult to the law before and during action, the government has to take the responsibility of their action both during and after the action. If the existing legal rules are inflexible according to the circumstances, it would cause a socially undesirable
If a passed law is found to be different with any provision in the constitution then it could be taken to court and challenged as unconstitutional. The Federal Constitution of Malaysia is the supreme law of federation. It is the fundamental and basic law of the land which acts as a benchmark to measure the validity of other laws.
