The arrangement between Asia and Australia was extremely indispensable, Australian’s went to unreasonable length
Jeremiahs ' mother deceased and was cared for by his grandmother who is now deceased. The court gave custody to the aunt (Latanya), but she has not been living in the home.

Since the court and everyone believed Rev Hales word many people who were arrested were because of him. Rev Hale stated, “ Excellency, I have signed seventy-two death warrants; I am a minister of the Lord, and I dare not take a life without there be a proof so immaculate no slightest qualm of conscience may doubt it” (Miller 99). This was the starting point of Hale realizing how many lives were taken because of his word. He signed the warrants, making the death in his hand, but he was trying to get them a second chance because he knew they were wrongfully accused. Also, when Rev Hale visits Elizabeth in the Jail he tries to make her confess the truth because he knows her and John were wrongfully thrown in jail.
The motivation that provoked the British to settle in Australia was to expand their empire. Historian’s opinions on why New South Wales was colonised in 1788 has changed over time due to the evidence that has been found. Historians originally thought that Australia was colonized as a ’dumping’ ground for convicts and place for them to be transported to, although through further evidence and changing views with historians, it gives us the different perspective that Australia was colonised for the expansion of the British Empire. This essay will argue that Australia was colonised to expand the Empire of the British people. Botany Bay provided good resources for them to use such as Flax and Timber used for making cloths and building ships.
He is among a court of judges that either condemns people or hears their testament of being a witch. “Excellency, I have signed seventy-two death warrants; I am a minister of the Lord, and I dare not take a life without there be a proof so immaculate no slightest qualm of conscience may doubt it.” (Miller, pg. 99) Reverend Hale holds so much power that he has signed most of the death warrants of those accused of witchcraft. Half way through the play when more well known good people are getting accused he starts to see the faults in the tria system.
(Miller 120) Reverend Hale had the courage to voice his opinion and step in when needed. Reverend Hale made reasonable points trying to side with John Proctor. “Proctor, the court is just”. (Miller 73).
At first, Hale took religion very seriously; he was completely shocked when he saw that John Proctor didn’t know all of the commandments. But soon he realized that just because someone sinned, it didn’t make them a bad person. For example, Cheever mentions that John Proctor isn’t a proper Christian man because he works on the Sabbath day. But Hales defends him, showing that he doesn’t care too much about the fact that John sinned. In ACT 3 of "The Crucible," Hale states, "Your honor, I cannot think you may judge the man on such evidence."
By the 18th century, all colonies, except for one, had legislatures like the English Parliament. Twenty years about the arrival of the Virginia Company Charter, Virginia colonists had adapted English criminal justice practices to the New World. Most procedures dealing with indictment, arrest, bail, trial, judgement, and execution of sentence were familiar to an Englishmen. The courts tried minor criminal case, felony cases were heard at the General Court. “Dales Laws” were laws that expected colonists to attend daily church services under penalty of 6 months service in the of the galleys of Virginia company ships, but if you missed Sunday services repeatedly you could receive the death penalty.
There was now “ a slightest qualm of conscience ” as he put it, something the court refused to acknowledge. Hale was faced with the decision in that moment of how he was going to let pressure affect his life; as he denounced the court and left his choice was clear, he would not let the pressure of society hold him prisoner but let the pressures he placed on himself set him free something Proctor had found out much
As for Hale, in the beginning of the play authority for him is absolute and just whatever it does it is the right thing, but as the events unfold, he comes to understand that just because the court has the upper hand does not necessarily mean that it does the right thing. That is why he recants the procedures of the trails and condemns them (Bly 68). " I denounce these proceedings, I quit the court " ( III .iii. 120). To Danforth when it comes to authority, it is sacred , so accordingly, he is very strict to see it well served.

In 1826, the first mention of prison rape in the history of the republic, Rev. Louis Dwight wrote that “Boys are Prostituted to the Lust of old Convicts” throughout the institutions he surveyed from Massachusetts to Georgia. Dwight, the founder of the Prison Discipline Society of Boston, a prison reform group, wrote that “Nature and humanity cry aloud for redemption from this dreadful degradation.” It was not until the 21st century that the nation saw its first anti-prison-rape legislation. Last year, congress passed the Prison Rape Reduction Act, which allocates $60 million to support rape-prevention programs run by federal, state, and local corrections staff and to aid investigations and punishment of perpetrators. The bill, which enjoyed
Human trafficking can occur anywhere in the world. The myth of human trafficking only occurring in less developed countries such as India is far from the truth. It happens in Australia, right under our noses. Countries can be categorised in either a transit country, takes the trafficked victims and forces them to wait until they are deported to different countries like China, United States, United Kingdom, Australia, or can be a destination country where the trafficked victims are sent to and are in demand. Australia is a destination country, receiving
His admiration of the court goes down as he sees more people being hanged and the stubbornness of the court. In the end, Hale knows that the law is not the entire aspect of creating a perfect society, no one in a society needs to follow the law entirely, and that authority does not always judge over everything. He has no more confidence in the idea of dominance of God over anything in life, and by that mean he loses his faith to the court. Not just those, he doesn’t carry the heavy written laws since the beginning. When Hale loses his faith towards the court and the society, he earns empathy and respect from us the readers and proving how moral obligation plays a bigger role than civic duty when it comes to real difficulties in a

The age of consent varies by jurisdiction, but is typically eighteen years old and below. Some jurisdictions also require the perpetrator to be ‘X’ number of years older than the victim before someone is charged with statutory rape. These laws are set in place because it is believed that a person below the age of adulthood cannot legally consent to sexual acts.
