"I am not doing anything wrong. I am just afraid of the punishment" (Gantos 85). Jack does not believe what he did was wrong, but fears the consequences of his crimes. One may be thinking how could one end up in prison for such morbid crime so early in a person 's life? Many instances in his life that could have been a result to this way of thinking.
Injustice The Scottsboro Case shed light on the racial practices expressed in law that made a great impact on the legal system today. The actual victims of the Case did not receive a fair trial due to the color of their skin. The ones who played the victims planned the crime, and their stories made no sense. But like many of the trials during the time it wasn’t based on the actual evidence that was found,or even the defendants ' stories. Therefore, if one was colored the trial wouldn’t be in their favor.
In the 60’s the population did not sentence people unless the crime was really intolerable for example rape, murder and grand theft, however in the 21st century people are incarcerated for the possession of drug such as marijuana although some states already legalized and it does not matter how much of it was found on the person if it is of large quantity or even in small quantity. I find this ridiculous for the reason being for those who are incarcerated it goes on their record such that if they apply for a job they will have to state that they have been in jail and this usually risks their chances of getting the job which means they will be unemployed and they will do whatever it takes to make ends meet. This usually means they will upgrade up their crime such as armed robbery or even selling cocaine and this brings us full circle of what is wrong with the justice system In the end, we have to think about how the country looks if we have the highest number of prisoners than other nations. This could be seen as a government that spends too much time cracking down on minor offenses instead of focusing on the bigger crimes such as terrorism or even internet crimes. So, if we do actually focus on improving the society by providing people with jobs then we will not need prisons since the majority of people would have what they
They both revolve around a boy named Harrison Bergeron who went to jail because he didn’t follow the rules of equity that was established by the government, which leads to many consequences. While the two versions of Harrison Bergeron provide the same overall meaning and theme, many whom watched both versions may like one version more than the other. The two versions don’t have the same details, which leads to people having different opinions about them. Whereas the movie version
They started lynching to protect white women from rapists, even though rape was not their biggest threat. The biggest threat at the time was homicide, with many other reasons following. The court systems were not very fair at the time. Klan members were among the judge and jury, making the trials extremely biased against blacks. This led to many false accusations towards black people.
It is clear to see that if incarcerated individuals could vote while in prison many negative factors they face would be prevented. However, Politician’s wouldn’t want this to happen because they know that this would go against or hurt their campaign for many reasons, one being they wouldn’t be able to successfully persuade both incarcerated individuals and those of us in society due to one party (incarcerated individuals or citizens) being able to benefit from the promises of the candidate and one not. This wouldn’t be beneficial to those who oversee private prisons either because they would be prosecuted if the truths came to light about the mistreatment and injustice of those who are in jail face in their day to day lives. These wrongdoings could be changed in many ways but if I had to step up and do it personally I would demonstrate through signing a petition or marching for change. Signing a petition that would speak out and highlight things that need to change to ensure a safe life for their inmates would ultimately cause the overseers to consider my proposition to prevent a scandal.
Due to lack of evidence, it is often hard to charge an officer for disorderly conduct, which causes the public outrage and turns them against the justice system. If officers wore body cameras, there would be more evidence to support any claims made between both the officers and the public who ask for answers. A great example of this occurred earlier this year with the death of Mike Brown, who was an unarmed teenager killed by Darren Wilson. Wilson was indicted because of the lack of evidence that Brown was actually a threat. It was basically the public against an officer.
Institutionalized discrimination against homosexuals stems from systemic stereotypical beliefs, where negative stereotypes and discrimination are the norm. For example in some Middle Eastern countries it’s normal to imprison a homosexual. Here in America it’s almost twice as hard for a minority homosexual man to be open in corporate America, depending on what state you live in. In more liberal states such as California, it may be more acceptable. However, in southern states such as Georgia, that behavior is shunned and not openly talked about.
Sometimes this is good but sometimes they’re bad as well and the people eye can go along with a new police but not knowing there’s a twist to it. Overall racial profiling is a violation of are individual human rights and it also violates our 14th amendment. Police should stop using this method and use other methods to figure out criminal behavior. We live in a world where people are still simple minded and can’t get out of their old ways. Being racially targeted because your black or muslin any other race can take a toll on someone

However , there are many controversies going on whether the former criminals to should have the right to vote again. Should they get the right to vote again? No, they should not because ex-cons have shown irresponsibility and dishonesty, they have violated the the rights of others, and they do not value society. According to, Voting Rights: 6 reasons Ex felons should not vote by Jerry Shaw, “Ex prisoners prisoners have demonstrated dishonesty and irresponsibility in their character by committing a crime, especially a serious crime and
