If it is being looked at from a “constraining” point of view the sentencings should be harsh, because the more serve the punishment the less likely they are to re-offend. Families of rape and murder victims should be allowed to decide the punishment for criminals. When families decide the punishment there is more satisfaction because then they know that there was action taken against the criminal who affected their family. All though it is feared to end in cruel and unusual punishment, there are laws in place to prevent the use of cruel and unusual punishment. Families of
Crime is an immoral form of behaviour. Punishment is because people choose to commit a crime. The punishment should be severe enough to prevent criminals from committing a crime. The punishment should fit the crime. The role of the government is to ensure crime by enforcing laws and ensuring that whoever breaks it should be punished.
The due process model is seen to focus on the suspect whereas the crime control model focuses on the society. This paper analyzes these two models and based on the rate of crime in the society, makes recommendations as to which is the best model in criminal justice. The principle in law that one is innocent until proven guilty has created much discourse. There are those who feel that the moment that one is arrested, there is reasonable belief that they committed the crime. However, there are those who feel that just as the principle states, one is, and should be taken as a victim and the outcome could be either way: guilty or not guilty.
The actions of these bullies are too severe to not be dealt and prosecuted in court. An example of why bullies should be prosecuted in court is, the victim 's best chance of finding relief and be put at ease is to bring a private suit against the bully. The bully has violated many laws and social media agreements, stalking laws. But the private lawsuit does not give total esurance of relief for the victim because bullying is not against the law. Therefore making bullying illegal is the proper solution (Manuel).
As a member of society, there will be times where we would need to break the law in an important occasion. The laws were made for our society to be safe and they also serve as a protection of an individual’s rights. Laws prevent people from getting hurt or getting into situations they might regret later in their lives. But there will be scenarios where we would need to break the law for our protection, protection of our family, or in a state of an emergency. Breaking the law would be acceptable if lives are in danger or to prevent an even more serious law being made.
That is both a good and bad side to this situation. Yes, these offenders will be thinking twice of whether or not they should even attempt to try and commit a similar crime but there is a downfall to it. Although the sex offenders might be thinking twice they might also be coming up with me clever ways to do what they want and get away with it. Some sex offenders may also be scared of the harsh punishments that they are likely to receive. If sex offenders are indentified in the community if a sex offender is caught doing the same crime they are likely to receive a worst punishment from which they received before.
The legislative system of the United States was founded with the intent to punish those who perform actions that directly violate the rights of others. Victimless crimes seek to punish citizens for hurting themselves, an idea that is entirely ludicrous in
At its heart is the idea that in the absence of effective controls, offenders will prey upon attractive targets. To have a crime, a motivated offender must come to the same place as an attractive target. For personal crimes such as kidnapping, the target is a person. In addition, there are controllers whose presence can prevent crime. If the controllers are absent, or present but powerless and corrupt, crime is possible (Figure 2.1).
That is to say that the judge hopes the severity of the sentence will deter Mr Austin from offending again and serve as an example of the possible punishments for a crime of this severity to the rest of the public. When deciding the sentence the judge took into account the guilty plea entered by the accused, the impact of the crime on the victim and his family, the circumstances under which the crime was committed and the criminal history of the
