Daniel Holtzclaw is an ex-Oklahoma City officer who is convicted of rape along with other several charges after he brutally abused many African American women over the course of six months. Daniel Holtzclaw was sentenced to 263 years in prison for the charges filed against him. Holtzclaw was convicted for 18 of 36 counts which included first-degree rape. Holtzclaw’s adamant lawyers tried to start a new trial by stating that there was not enough evidence but it was a lost cause although they did not want to accept it. There were several of Holtzclaw’s victims who obstinately spoke out about their abuse done by Holtzclaw himself. There was more than enough evidence to successfully put Holtzclaw aways for his crimes yet there were several dogmatic people who still had the audacity to say that he was innocent.
This brings into question the severity and extent to which Robert Harris should be held accountable for his actions. There are two different ends of the morality spectrum through which Harris can be found guilty: moral responsibility and criminal responsibility. This is where the different theories on moral responsibility truly come into play. While none of these philosophical arguments would hold up in court, it does make the decisions made by Robert Harris seem much more complicated than it first appeared. The criminal justice system is based on a libertarian train of thought. The system makes the assumption that we do possess free will, but also, in some circumstances, we do not. When it comes to Robert Harris, the formula for liability

Society seems to love unorthodox punishments, so it’s no surprise that this story is going viral! On the Hawaiian island of Maui, Daren Young has plead no contest to violating a protection order.

Why are people always convicted on something they only have circumstantial evidence on? I believe that there is many more ways for a jury to find out if a person is guilty or not and circumstantial evidence is one of the main things they use. Most of the time people get blamed for something they didn’t do and they don’t even have all the evidence to prove that one is guilty. So then they end up going to jail for a crime they did not commit.

They are informing people that the reason why the death penalty should be avoided is because the State Authorities can easily make a mistake by causing innocent people to get killed. Gushee and Stassen states, “one thing churches can do is be involved in prison ministries and overcome the distance polite society has placed between itself and the incarcerated.” This statement illustrates their basic convictions for the Mission of the Church because they are encouraging Christians to visit the prisoners so that they can pray for them and inform them that God still loves them. Also, they would like for Christians to visit the prisoners so that they can notify them that they still have a chance to turn their life around for the better and that they still have time to ask God for
