The main job of the inspection division is, “to ensure that the safety of the general public is maintained”, and extraditing him to the US is the only way to guarantee him from not escaping and the safety of the US. Even with these high security prisons, El Chapo has found ways to work around them and bribe police officers and officials. In a recent study, “Of the more than 1,000 Mexicans who responded to a 2013 survey from Transparency International, 90% said police were corrupt or extremely corrupt, and 80% felt the same way about the country 's judiciary.” This shows that the officials in Mexico are easily swayed and we cannot trust those overseeing El Chapo’s sentence. His cartel is the biggest supplier of heroin and cocaine in the US, and is convicted of federal trafficking and organized crime; therefore he can be legally tried and imprisoned in the United States.
He was indicted within one day by the grand jury. Mexicans had the opportunity to decide whether they wanted to stay in the United States and become American Citizens. At this time the only people that could become American Citizens were Anglos. Pedro Hernandez was found guilty and sentenced to life in prison. The most important thing about the case of Hernandez v. Texas was that it helped end racial discrimination in the judicial system, and provides equal protection of the laws for all Americans.
People who have committed felonies and are put in jail get their rights taken away once they are put in uniforms and made to do whatever the parole officers tell them to. One of the main rights taken away are the right to vote in the presidential elections every four years. In today’s society, everybody’s opinion can make in impact in the way our country in ran. Convicted felons have a large percentage of votes that could change the outcome of an election if they were allowed to vote. Convicted felons who have been released should definitely regain their rights to vote.

The military force can provide safety and preserve laws that implement authority to basic rights. Over a 24 year span, at least 100,000 East Timorese people were killed through the violation of basic rights. People were killed through hunger, murder and through bloodshed. The problem started in 1975 when Indonesia invaded East Timor eventually to take the rights away from their citizens. The Washington Post “charged Indonesia with using napalm against Timorese civilians and children were sent to death camps to be wiped out.”
Venezuela is currently experiencing many anti-government protests and demonstrations. These were originally organized to demand heightened security, but the demands have expanded to include economic changes in the face of high inflation and basic food staple shortages.

All the reasons that the mandatory minimum sentencing laws were set into place appear to be good ideas, but they are ineffective. The law has not shown crime reduction. The history of mandatory sentencing in the United states for federal drug crimes had started with the passage of the Sentencing Reform Act of 1984, also known as SRA. Congress had changed sentencing by rejecting the idea or the possibility of
His regime was considered to be corrupt and brutal both by the local Liberians as well as the international community. Finally, after nearly a decade of terror under Doe’s regime, a rebellion arose in Eastern Liberia in 1989. The rebellion quickly spread to Monrovia (the capital), and although the rebel forces had pushed into the seat of his power, Doe refused to back down. In 1990, Doe was captured and assassinated, and Charles Taylor, another military figure, took power. The assassination of Samuel Doe was a shock and caused confusion among the Liberian people.
Luis Garavito, the world’s most prolific serial killer, is known for killing the most victims in the world. Garavito raped and murdered over one hundred and forty children in Columbia (Heyden). Since Columbia does not enforce the death penalty, he was sentenced to one thousand eight hundred and fifty-three years in prison. The Colombian law states that a criminal can only be imprisoned for up to forty years, and since he helped law enforcement discover a few bodies he was re-sentenced to twenty-four years in prison (Heyden). Reasons such as these exemplify the need for the death penalty and why it is beneficial in America.
