They end up having nothing and have nowhere else to turn but to the streets. The system makes the juveniles lives harder by the situations that they end up in once they are out of jail. Police make them seem as if they are already criminals so why not be the people that the system sees them as. Teenagers in OPP do not get the correct medical treatment (Josh). The ways that they are treated and how they receive no help is ashame because that is not how people should be treated no matter where they are.
Instead, some criminals are wrongfully convicted and never went through a fair trial. Taxes would still be high and inhumanity would still be the problem. By sentencing a criminal to death, the people who protecting the laws are also the killers. America is the only free, democratic country where death penalty exist. The system should be abolished because one wrong evidence can cause a life.
By his past action the criminal has shown himself to be wicked and dangerous. Anybody deprived enough to murder or assault one is probably going to act in socially harmful ways once more. The only way to keep a person from going to murder or assault later on is to execute him. Detainment is a far less effective method for protecting society from such dangerous criminals. Most detainees are freed after a period frequently become most risky than when they entered jail by parole, pardon or the expiration of their sentences.
o For example, the area of the courts and concerns over jury nullification This concern stems from the larger issue of citizens serving as the conscience of the community and a jury’s ethical obligation to abide by law but its refusal to convict in a situation which would lead to an unjust result. One great ethical dilemma we face is sentencing juveniles to life-without-parole. A drastic punishment is to give a person a criminal sentence of life with no possibility of parole. What this does is banishes the person from having any social interactions in the world outside those cement walls. This punishment is viewed to be
If any of these were to arise in a court against a white teenage boy I guarantee the judge would revoke this as valuable evidence. In the court of law to persuade someone to guilty or not guilty should only be based on facts and raps often do not have trustworthy facts of the crime. Even the article says that raps tend to be written years before the crime was committed. With this in mind, how is one supposed to persuade the jury? Unless playing against the stigmatism of a “gangster” and the dangers they oppose to our society using?
Additionally, people argue that a reasonable punishment for a person that has taken the life of another is “an eye for an eye.” However, taking a man’s life as a form of justice is wrong. Therefore, the government should ban capital punishment and come together to create a different way to seek justice. Can capital punishment be reversed? Everybody makes mistakes. For example, if a jury wrongly convicts a person of murder and the person is sentenced to life in prison, the jury can immediately have the conviction overturned and the person will be released.
A child who commits a horrible mistake should not have to pay for it and endure the consequences for the rest of his life. Juveniles who have senselessly committed have been punished with a life sentence with no chance of parole and no chance of rehabilitation. The fact that jury’s and judges are giving juveniles life in prison instead of giving them a chance of remorse and recovery is not just and should be changed. There is a huge difference between a child who commits murder mindlessly and a child who is mentally ill and needs serious help. Therefore, there should be a different consequence for each of them.
It is not right to let someone get off easy for a serious crime they have committed no matter what age they are. Even though Manny was 18 he should have faced more then 9 years in prison. Even though he grew up with out a father and was raped that doesn't make it right to hurt other people. Manny gave up and let his criminal side take over. He could have left the bad neighborhood he was in but no he decide to stay and now he has to pay for the prices of his
Furthermore, the punishment of the criminal offence could be prison, fines, community sentence and so on. Criminal law is set to deter people from committing criminal offences and to protect people from being attacked by others. Rickard (n.d.) claims that criminal law is being enacted to make sure that people do not use the law to seek for the personal justice by punishing the people which has harm us. For example, maybe someone has been raped by a person. If there is no criminal law, the victim or the family member of the victim could punish or even kill the person by saying that they are doing it only to gain the justice.
Many people claim it is a dangerous and risky if prisoners retain the right to vote in political matters. After all, they have somehow violated the laws of the state by committing a crime that led to their imprisonment. But democratic, constitutional states like Germany have not denied prisoners their right to vote. The following essay will argue in favour of that decision. The idea of legal punishment by imprisonment is not revenge but retributivism because the government needs to make sure that these people are eventually able to reclaim a normal life.
