An important role is carried out by the criminal justice system in a democratic society. My philosophy and approach for balancing individual rights and public protection is that law enforcement authorities should restrict citizens’ liberties through force to compel obedience of law if those liberties cause harm to the society. Authorities maintain law and order by restricting freedoms of the citizens through force to constrain them to obey the law penalizing those who disobey the law. However, the citizens must be free to exercise the freedoms granted and guaranteed by the Constitution. Therefore, the law must give way to reasonable exercise of civil liberties when those freedoms do not cause harm to others.
I will attempt to justify that John Stuart Mills approach to the argument of Freedom of Speech is the most valid, and the only instance where expression should be limited is where it causes an immediate harm or violation to the rights of others. I believe that expression should be limited when it causes harm to others or violates their rights. This view coincides with J.S Mill’s “Harm Principle”. I do not believe that hate speech should be prohibited as it merely offensive, not harmful to the rights of others. Unless of course, this expression is inciting violent or illegal behaviour, or threatening others, in which case it is directly harmful and should therefore be prohibited.
The first one is the intent of the lawmakers through which it is indicated that the purpose was to cover all acts of torture in any form and if the fountainhead of command is not covered under the ambit of the Convention then its purpose is ultimately defeated . The Court, in other words, says that it is unfair to hold an officer of lower rank liable for an offense if the person in charge is allowed freedom to continue ordering such acts. Thus, Pinochet is an officer under the meaning of the Convention . The second technique is a purposeful mode of interpretation through which the Court reads the provisions keeping in mind the ultimate purpose of the Convention. The Court holds that immunity is a concept is granted ratione personae and on the expiration of office, this becomes rationemateriae.
Gun Control On December 15th, 1791 our Second Amendment right was adopted. As stated in our Bill of Rights, "A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed." The right to bear arms is a right that every American deserves to have to protect themselves and to serve their families. However there are many that believe that because of mindless acts of violence that guns are to blame. The ill minded should not be the cause of the abiding citizens of America to lose their rights.
Firearms is one of America’s most controversial topics, one side argues that guns should be outlawed and only permitted to those in association with the government, while the other side replies that guns should be buyable to law abiding citizens and should not be outlawed. I myself fall on the side that claims why guns should not be outlawed, and why we should be able to possess firearms if we do our duties as a citizen. In the constitution under amendment II, it states that the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed, what this means is that no one should be able to take away our rights to keep and use firearms. But there are still people who think that guns are too dangerous and lead to an excessive amount of casualties, and instead would like to keep guns off the streets.. To that I respond with the phrase that guns don 't kill people, people kill people, what I mean here is that someone has to give the command to the gun for the bullet to come out. If our society wasn’t so corrupt then guns wouldn 't be debated on so much, because we wouldn 't have to worry about a criminal or mentally unstable person shooting an innocent human being.. And some people actually need guns, because they choose to live remotely and still hunt for food, even though this is extremely rare it still transpires.
These law makers must properly asses this bill and the affects it will have on prisons systems, individual offenders, and the crime rate. All offenders should not be generalized and sentenced according one law because every circumstance is different. We must restore our faith in the appointed criminal judges that they will do everything within their power to administer the law appropriately and fair based on evidence and intent. Overturning mandatory minimum laws starts with knowing a few specific details. These details include: what mandatory minimums are and what brought about their start, knowing what classification of offenders are affected by the laws and if it is warranted for the offense, the number of inmates incarcerated currently that are serving mandatory minimum sentences, and the impact mandatory minimum laws have on the prison systems.
The so-called extrajudicial killings are forbidden to be narcotics. First, it is forbidden. Second, it is narcotics. They can also say that they are not justified, We, can say that it is only right for them, that in that way they will be released, but if you kill for no reason are you going tell someone? If, you walk in front of your loved ones would you be happy?
This is crucial since the army officers put their life on the line to ensure the safety of the nation’s and its citizen’s. Furthermore, personal defence of an army officer should be exercise at utmost capability in exchange of unbiased and bloodstained legal decision regarding disagreement among the officers. ‘Honour crime’ was fundamental if the progress be made out of blood-shed to legal verdict and lawful encounter ought to substitute physical clash. In theory, anything considered as ungentlemanly regime and may be use as advantageous method of disposing disliked military officers. Other than that, definite characterization of behaviour may obliterate along the way of reconciling disagreement regarding cowardice and personality aspersion.
They are: a case against suicide, a lying promise, developing one’s own talents, and helping others (G 4:430). I believe that Kant’s argument for the impermissibility of suicide to be especially strong. Kant says that a person who is contemplating committing suicide must ask of themself if that action is “consistent with the idea of humanity” (G 4:429). The idea here is that in choosing suicide, which is an autonomous choice, a person directs their humanity towards its own destruction. It is by allowing such violence against them that that person is showing disrespect towards their own rational nature.
You do not consider what is good to society or anyone else but would rather taking action which benefits you and the people you care about. For example, in term of the moral duty, it is wrong to use promotion through the fears of death. Deontology theory is different with theory of utilitarianism. According to Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy, utilitarianism usually refer to action taken that will give the greatest good for the greatest number of people regardless whether it will harm an innocent people or not. For example, you have to considered the right and needs of the intruder before shooting him with the intend to kill.
