As well as, a person can’t be a double jeopardy which means if someone commits a crime and the police didn’t find any evidence against them so they can free to go. It indicates that if the court didn’t have any evidence against a criminal and the court let him go and later, police find evidence against criminals so they can’t arrest that person again. It shows to us that the seventh amendment is very important and helpful. The 8th Amendment is important to all people that live in the United States. First, the 8th Amendment helps the courts to take a decision.
This is an important concept because it explains that officers should not follow society and pressure from the public and media but follow the laws that our country. This a good thing to have when dealing with persuasive criminals and individuals. Both officers and civilians benefit from this principle because it protects both parties. Officers also need to know the laws, so they can stay away form trouble and not be deceived by public persuasion. This is a good thing to have in America today, because many criminals will say anything to get out of punishment.
The main argument in favor of jail staff treating pretrial detainees more leniently than convicted jail inmate is that because they are still innocent, they should not have to be treated similar to a convicted jail inmates or limit some of their freedom until they are announce as a convicted offender. However, the argument against such leniency is it will be much harder for corrections officials to manage and deal with preterial detainees. The corrections officials would hestiate to control a situation and harder for them to determine which behavior is acceptable and what is not. This statement can summarize the challenges posed by pretrial detainees by that one is able to temporary buy his or her time, if they can afford to. Pretrial detainees
The justice system should have different ways of punishing a person according to the crime they commit, just by putting them in jail and assuming that is going to change them is not a good way of going about that. These criminals as the justice system call them they get stripped of basic civil and human rights when being released from jail. There not able to find a job, and they can’t get any government assistant. Is like the justice system wants these criminals to fail in life for they could keep going back to jail. When a person is released from jail they are considered a criminal for whatever crime they committed they are stripped of basic and civil rights.
Civil commitment is the mandatory placement of an offender within a secure facility, like a prison, however their time here could be indefinite. Some view this as a violation of one’s rights, and on the other hand, some are elated that these offenders are behind bars in a safe place. According to Quanbeck (2014), this type of treatment was meant to not be a punishment for the offender; it was supposed to act as rehabilitation. However, “these just and constitutional goals cannot be truly achieved if the government can manipulate the outcome …in order to confine those who do not meet the requisite threshold of dangerousness” (Quanbeck,
In the United States criminals are not permitted to vote in any kind of elections. Once prisoners get incarcerated they lose their self-determination and some of their rights. Prisoners are citizens too and even though they may have committed a felony, they are still citizens of their country. Some people think prisoners should not have the right to vote, but there are many others that think they should. I think they should be allowed to vote because they still are citizens and still have some rights.
How impossible is it to not become hardened and detached under the constant threat of victimization? It’s hard to imagine that reform is part of that equation when one’s very life is at stake. Yet that is one of the impressions that we on the outside have of why criminals are in prisons: so that they will get better. But do they? In effort to make society appear to
The United States now lives in fear of enemies. These terrorists that deserve to be sentenced in a jail away from everyone they have caused harm to. Overall the ideal place for people who have caused harm to others should be away from our country. That is why I believe Guantanamo Bay is the perfect place for them to be. If they are deported back to their country they
To any person who speaks lowly of any person of color should be sent to jail for the violation of the constitution. The Thirteenth Amendment abolished all slavery and created civil rights for all, despite the color of their skin. The violation of this amendment should be a criminal offense. It is likely that this would have a positive impact on the world. Jail time is a punishment in which mortality is not threatened, however it is still severe enough to enact attention.
As a felon, coming out of prison all you know is how to live in prison, many are unsure how to go back into a normal functioning society and move along productively. Restoring, but also limiting their rights is a small way to show them that they are equal to all the others in society and keeps them from feeling like outcasts and the social pariahs that this world makes them out to be. Felons and Ex felons are equal to any other american citizen, their only difference is the ex felons have made mistakes in their past that have negatively affected them and their lives. However, mistakes made from the past should not affect people 's later lives in such a way that it can keep people from the obtaining the most basic of rights, this includes voting. Restoring the voting rights of ex felons would help them learn the value of the justice system and the law to strengthen their participation in average life practices.
That’s the only punishment we are giving them, We are trying to help them back to society.” those words sounds are not very reasonable to me, although it sounds like a humane idea, because no one could guarantee that those criminal not escape from the prison, but that fact is, it works very well and that encourages me to think deeper about it. Does the prison really deprive the freedom of
For example, if a person is detained by law enforcement, law enforcement are not able to torture this person for information they seek. All people have civil liberties of freedom of torture. The police also aren’t able to illegally or forcefully abduct a person to quiet them down etc. (There have been claims for activist of every kind that they were forcefully detained a prison to shut them up). Hebeas Corpus protect a lot of individual rights and liberties so that people can’t be taken advantage of and abused from anyone that feels they have the right to do
But there is also the problem that if the NSA become completely transparent, the terrorist and other people the NSA is trying to catch, will have more knowledge as how to not get caught, which would just make the NSA ineffective. Basically the people have to decide whether they want a government that catches terrorists or one that always protects their freedoms. Most parts of the world would rather have a government that catches terrorists and keeps them safe, but unlike these countries, America (excuse my American exceptionalism) has an amendment for their constitution that bans unreasonable search and seizures. The NSA is in a difficult position because it must weigh how transparent they can be to appease the population with how much secrecy they need to function
The controversy over what rights felons have after being convicted varies ``from state to state. As a United States citizen, our right to vote is presented clearly in the Constitution. Due to this, being incarcerated should not affect our civil duties or rights. Stripping citizens of their right to vote only weakens our democracy because it minimizes voting turnouts. To address this issue, congress has the position and power to overrule each state’s laws to make it clear that convicted felons should be eligible to vote in all states.
