Dna that has been planted onto a crime scene will incriminate innocent people and this will result in the falsely accusing/charging of innocent people for a sentence and charge they did not do and should not have to serve time for. This is a serious topic, people lives can be ruined if they’re at a place at the wrong time. Dna is taken more seriously over word too, like if a witness says something that contradicts dna “evidence”, dna evidence would automatically win over a witness’s word. While Dna may
Deterrence philosophy reason for sentencing is defined as a philosophy that crime can be prevented through the threat of punishment. Incapacitation philosophy is defined as a philosophy that crime can be prevented by detaining wrongdoers in prison thereby separating them from the community and reducing criminal opportunities. Finally rehabilitation philosophy is defined as the philosophy that society is best served when offenders are provided the resources to get rid of criminal activity from their daily behavior patterns. Retribution just holds the severity of the crime against the guilty and is aimed at pleasing the society as whole party rather than just the victim/s. Deterrence uses other criminals as examples for the community to be discouraged from crime.
The topic is debated whether or not the Capital Punishment should be legal. The government is already involved in the lives of those who commit crimes, but the idea of it taking away someone’s life creates an uneasy thought. Some people believe that execution is wrong, inhumane and should be abolished while others believe that it projects positive impacts and
In the article, “Why Are We Sentencing Children To Life In Prison Without Parole?”, Vincent M. Southerland and Jody Kent Lavy write “Even though they have mental disorders teens/juveniles should still pay the same consequences” (Southerland). Juveniles committing adult crimes must be given adult consequences. Their mental disabilities are no excuse for taking someone's life or commuting any other heinous crimes. If they have serious mental disorders they should not be let alone at any time because of the danger they may cause to society. Also, if depression is a serious issue in a juvenile’s life they should seek help rather than taking someone’s
One of these is to keep persons suspected of committing a crime under secure control before a court of competent jurisdiction determines whether they are guilty or innocent. Incarceration also punishes offenders by depriving them of their liberty once the court of law has convicted. Moreover, incarceration deters criminals from committing further crimes
That as long as society does not provide support and love the violence will continue in communities without these facilities. Finally, Most notably, they lead to negative emotions such as anger, frustration, depression, and fear and abusive can be a factor and the treatment from others can spike the interest of other concepts (SagePub.com,p1). The things that are implied in the youths everyday life or the events that have happened in front of them as negative cognition. These are the main reason why the crime is violence as other people look at it as labeling the violences to themselves. As well, one being taken care of or by other influences that any individual youth feels appreciated with.
The theory of criminal justice This theory states that criminal procedures are part and branch of philosophy that focuses on punish those who break the law. There is a strong correlation between criminal procedures and the philosophy of law as well as the morals and ethical standards of society. Criminal law theorists put more emphases on offenses that can be seen as illegal and that warrant criminalization of the activities or events. Thus, most of these theorists believe that there is the need to punish the lawbreakers to set an example to other individuals who may have intentions of following their suit or engaging in legal activities. Some of the activities classified by criminal law theorist as a crime or illegal include murder, rape and
Keith Albow spoke on the risks of the public from repeated sex offenders and in this interview Dr. Albow talked on the use of Chemical Castration to sex offenders and how this actual process underwent, whether is type of punishment would help in lowering the percentage of sex crimes in the United States or is it just a cruel way of punishing the individual by taking his manhood making him feel less of a man. When the whole time the public is looking to ways of punishing the offender with prison time and then enforcing them to treatment for this illness/disorder. (1) The questions that is still unanswered “will this chemical castration work, and will the sex offender continue the treatment once released back to the public?” And then earlier the circumstances where if the sex offender meet the criteria? Are there only certain offenders or depending on what type of sex crime, child molestation, sex abuse, rape, which one? In trying to make sure that the sex offender continues to get the injection each month or every 30 days might be impossible and unable to keep track of how many offenders are returning.
Mandatory sentencing laws often target moral vices like alcohol, sex, drugs, and to friendships and family via prohibition, and crimes that threaten a person's livelihood. The idea is that there are some crimes that are so serious there is no way to accept the offender back into the general population without first punishing them sufficiently. Some crimes are viewed as serious enough to require an indefinite removal from society by a life sentence, or sometimes capital punishment. It is viewed as a public service to separate these people from the general population, as it is assumed that the nature of the crime or the frequency of violation supersedes the subjective opinion of a judge. Remedying the irregularities in sentencing that arise from judicial discretion are supposed to make sentencing more fair and balanced.
Because of this, Some people would argue that with public shaming a punishment is extended beyond the sentence. The reason they argue this is that with the inclusion of social media, a criminal and their family could be harassed after the sentence has been served. Public shaming is very different from public harassment. Public shaming “is ostensibly a moral exercise intended to enforce certain social norms” (Suzy Khimm). Also, Although they may be harassed, the criminal did commit a crime and is entitled to a form of
Committed a crime such as murder can result in death, where fighting will result in doing community service or a fine. Holding people responsible for their actions. The person in power overall objective. Laws are created to control society, to deter criminals from committing crimes and to enforce social
Restorative justice offers the process for those affected by criminal behaviour such as the victims, offenders and families to take part in resolving the issues. According to some of the proponents of the restorative justice, crime is wrong not because it is an offence against the society. However, it is a wrong as it is a violation of a person by another person.
(Rosen, 1986) wrote, “The criminal law normally penalizes those who intentionally inflict or attempt physical harm… Thus, a person who kills in self-defense will be acquitted of homicide.” (The excuse of self-defense: pg. 27). Therefore, a woman who protects herself from her abuser will be considered as self-defense, because she is protecting her wellbeing against an active aggressor. On the other hand, taking the same situation into consideration, if she had planned to retaliate, this then warrants to be a crime, because the situation was premeditated. With this law in place, women will get the justification that they rightfully deserve if they get a fair trial.
Addressing this issue causes a huge debate due to stigmas. Many believe that any convicted criminal should be set away from society. This is due to the stigma that anyone convicted is a “delinquent” or is “crooked, evil, or a possible murderer.” But, it is quite naive to believe that prisons should be set separate from society. It is crucial that services are provided inside those walls to aid the inmates whom-with a few exceptions- will be released and it is our job and in our interest to ensure that they will not return to crime and be locked up yet again. Assisting them would be to not lock up people for pretty silly crimes, to relieve the problem of overcrowding, to not believe that a person of a darker skin tone is more likely to commit a violent crime, to as a whole support non violent offenders to turn around their life during their sentence and be released ready to start over and be welcomed back with open arms instead of silenced whispers and icy stares, to rid these prisons of industrialization and profit and encourage rehabilitation, rejuvenation, and
