If an offender committed a petty crime I do not believe that they should get a severe punishment. If we give every offender an lengthy sentence in jail or prison, our prisons will fill up more quickly, then when we get an offender that committed an crime such as murder and when it’s time to sentence them, the jails or prisons might be to full due to too many prisoners. The way I look at it is who I would rather see in jail somebody who committed a petty theft charge, or someone who committed a murder charge. That is why I agree with this trend. I agree with all the current trends that the prisons are using during their prison sentencing, but to me I believe these two are more
Well, there are many strategies on attempting a method to stopping parts of the cycle. One of those methods could be acceptance and understanding. A possible way to apply the method of acceptance and understanding to the cycle of violence is to understand where people are coming from. To put into logical reasoning, if we could all understand, not all of it but part of it, why someone is like something then we can get ourselves to stop violence and figure out acceptance for each other. This rule could apply to The Outsiders if the greasers accepted that the Socs just ended up to be the rich side kids and be spoiled the greasers would be able to understand their problem and may even help ending up fixing the problem.
He knew people would disapprove of defending Tom Robinson, but he did it anyway because he knew that was the proper thing to do. He always kept his cool under pressure, which is a very hard act to do. He also taught his kids well, even though he was a single parent, and a full-time working lawyer. He provided for his family, and never let anything bother him, and kept on pushing no matter the
Though I concede that an abusive or manipulative environment could have influenced their decision to purposely end someone’s life, I still agree with the minority that, to protect our society from their atrocity, juveniles should be given life sentences for murder. Juvenile killers should take responsibility for their actions because they have the mental capacity to make conscious decisions for themselves--no matter how impetuous--even if that decision is murder. Granting that juveniles are indeed living in a dysfunctional environment which they believe is inescapable, the environment itself doesn’t force a teenager’s hand in killing
However, in overall the book of “Kids for Cash” is a riveting expose that brings out the need for reforms in the juvenile justice system that can be described as a system gone awry. The author incorporated seamlessly reform arguments and a plea for good practices by pointing out the things that did not work in Luzerne and suggesting what are known to work best with the kids. The book also examined adolescent’s psychological development and also provides critiques to policies of zero tolerance and the pipeline of school to prison. Ecenbarger (2012) believes that that evidence that support diversion and community-based services are much more effective in recidivism reduction compared to incarceration. Similarly, he considers research that illustrate the net negative effects of youth incarceration, arguments that discourage shackling, fiscal arguments for the reaction of incarceration of the youth, and the significance of due process protections and quality representations for the accused youths for the
They encourage tolerance and consideration of others. And they support non-confrontational approaches in solving problems. We start treating asylum seekers as a failure of society and sub humans who deserved to be stereotyped and oppressed, then we are no better than the reason asylum seekers seek refuge. We need to change this cycle of violence and injustice, preventing it from further spiralling out of
The main solution is to stop minors being tried as adults A. The solution is to help the minor instead of punishing them a. Minors should be given and taught the basic life and social skills after being release from prison Transition: Lastly minor should not be tried as adults instead they should be tried as minor and given proper care to stop the crimes. Conclusion: In conclusion I think that minors should not be tried as adults because they will not survive in and adult prison and they will commit more crimes if they are put into adult prison. So the solution is to help them recover and become a better person in society instead of punishing
Imprisonment should have a deterrent effect as believed by the Quakers, but most importantly, it should serve as a function of reforming and rehabilitating the imprisoned individuals as well. From the 1940’s to the 1960’s, rehabilitation of offenders came into more light, at least in concept. It was a major goal in the system of how incarceration and other forms of corrections should be viewed. Between the 1970’s and the 1980’s, there was a reappearance of retributivism, or the ‘justice model’, which argues that wrongdoers are responsible for their acts, and therefore they deserve to be punished if they violate the law. The United States is also composing a utilitarian model to deal with crime and criminality.
We cannot continue to have further threats in the future. By remaining to have this facility open it decreases the chances of attacks, and by interrogating them help others learn about what they are capable of doing and what was on their minds. There are a total of 2,418,352 jails in the United States excessively increasing over the years. Instead of having Guantanamo Bay closed, they should be working on finding a way of closing down jails by releasing detainees with minor crimes. The people that have minor crimes can be penalized other ways, such as paying tickets and having community service hours.
I believe it is vital that we stop selling guns to people who scratch off serial numbers and sell them into the streets. Furthermore, I believe that small steps in improving gun laws will go a long way. If the American people can come together and agree that our second amendment is amazing and a powerful tool in times of need but a power that should be taken serious with many proper precautions, we can advance in the digression of gun violence in America. Getting involved with your community and learning about the effects of gun violence can help by changing things within your life, spreading to the lives of others. The best people have said you have to be the change you want to see in the world.
