He or she would judge that the offender is immoral in some way and, therefore, make a personal judgment that is separate from the law. For these reasons, I believe that moral relativism is ideal for those who work in the field of criminal justice. The law, as it stands, is to be enforced free from the moral judgments of the criminal justice community. A community that bases its morality on personal experience and does not pass judgment on the morality of an offender is a more professional force than a group of people with varying moral views who are tempted to apply a personal system to the enforcement of the
Social control theory tries to find and identify features of personality and the environment that keep people from committing crimes. Social control feels the underlying view of human nature includes the idea of free will which gives offenders the freedom of choice, and responsibility for their behavior (Kempf-Leonard & Morris, 2017). Even those who do choose to commit crimes are likely to share the general idea that the rules they broke should be followed (Kempf-Leonard & Morris, 2017). Social control theory feels that crime and deviance are predictable behaviors that society has not curtailed particularly the process where people are socialized to obey the laws and rules of society (Kempf-Leonard & Morris,
There are three main theories of punishment: retributive, utilitarian, and restitution. Firstly, retributive or the just deserts punishment theory must be examined again. Under retributive or just deserts punishment, a person is judged only on what he or she has done. Under this theory, the Pre-Crime system is immoral because how can a person be punished for something he or she has never done. The Pre-Crime system punishes based on thought, impulse, and planning regardless of whether or not the act was actually committed.
The laws, or in fact the accusers, unjustly put Socrates in prison and did not give him a fair trial, instead chose to execute. The laws are suppose to protect the society and its people, yet when the order of the government turns corrupt, then the validity of everything is at stake. As one can see, the corrupt laws placed Socrates in prison and he chose to abide by the impartial laws in order to be consistent and loyal to the
Shaw believes that a Utilitarian perspective supports the foundations of criminal law because laws help people have a sound mind and a good life. This is because laws protect personal belongings and self. Shaw suggests criminal law should be viewed from a Utilitarian perspective since it helps the overall well-being of society. Some things are breaking the law but are not to be punished as harshly as others. For example, a person speeding over the posted speed limit would not need to be sent to prison like a person who murders someone.
Depending on the outcome of the procedures, the population of a country are encouraged to participate is either criminal or noncriminal activities depending on the outcome of these trials. In this case, Timothy and his friends were taken away from the community for the safety and preference f the many after breaking the laws of the United States. Moreover, the theory of criminal justice states that sinners and lawbreakers should be punished according to which was the case of the Oklahoma bombing. After breaking capital offense of first-degree murder, Timothy was punished by being sentenced to death. His friends Michael and Terry were sentenced to imprisonment after withholding information which would have saved the lives of the deceased.
According to Jones (1962), "Social change is best described as variations in, or modifications of, any aspect of social processes, social patterns, social interaction or social organisation." M.D.Jenson, similarly refers to social change as “modification in ways of doing and thinking of people.” Giddens (1989) states that
Second, "Punishment is deserved. Criminal sanctions are justified because those who voluntarily break the law forfeit some of the rights claimed by citizens." (Siegle & Bartollas 2014 pg 6) The guilty get the punishment that they deserve, this justification is
