For example, with the creation of suspended sentence that means an order of a court after a verdict, finding, or plea of guilty that suspended or postpones an imposition or execution… with this creation the offender could plead guilty and it’s possible to reduce his sentence for a little time, but in the past when a person committed a crime, the decision was made by the law, even if the person was guilty or not, no matter what arguments the offender could demonstrate his/her punishment was given according to the law system. “The punishment for the criminals were corporal such as: flogging, branding, mutilation, and execution” (Fiftal23). And now with the implementation of probation everything is changing with time. Parole is an advance release from a penal or correctional. The law is becoming more flexible with criminals in a way that there is not enough punishment against them, with the exact punishment a criminal could understand about his mistakes.
The actions of these bullies are too severe to not be dealt and prosecuted in court. An example of why bullies should be prosecuted in court is, the victim 's best chance of finding relief and be put at ease is to bring a private suit against the bully. The bully has violated many laws and social media agreements, stalking laws. But the private lawsuit does not give total esurance of relief for the victim because bullying is not against the law. Therefore making bullying illegal is the proper solution (Manuel).
By the end of 18th century and the beginning of 19th century, two process of punishment began to disappear: torture as a public spectacle and physical pain. Foucault attributes to the process of ‘’Humanization’’ as the reason behind such disappearance. The change came because public punishment became to be seen as unfair as the crime itself. As a result, Punishment now becomes hidden from the public’s view. Foucault argues that no one (unlike in ancient regime where the sovereign/Royalty had the full power of punishing the culprit) is made responsible for delivering punishment because ‘’the apportioning of blame is redistributed’’.
ARTICLE THEORY OF PUNISHMENT REFLECTED IN PROBATION LAWS IN INDIA “The origin of crimes in modern societies is mainly due to the sociological context in which an individual offender is situated. Without understanding the sociological context, the crime cannot be understood; and without its understanding, its prevention cannot be effect ”. When analyzing the cause of crime it is found that there are so many factors that influence individuals to commit crime, such the environment they live, the society, family background, there character etc. In criminological study there are various theories concerning the criminal behavior for example Lombroso’s Biological theories, Personality theory, Sutherland’s Differential Association theory, Labeling
The view many are accepted to use prisons to indicate that certain forms of behavior will not be tolerated, and to protect them from those who refuse to play by the rules, has become a policy position that dares not speak its name. This has been put unchallenged over and over again as a paradoxical illustration of how the size of a prison reflects the level crime, not the victimhood of society. Incarceration is an effective program in regards to the regulation of crime rates due to a portrayal of how Tyrone Hoard presented the society the insufficiency of diversion programs as followed by statistical graphs and its persistence in criminal offering. A widespread use of incarceration manages the increase of crime rates, whereas alternatives in which the government has invested in this cognitive behavioral therapy is spineless. Tyrone Howard, who was a criminal given numerous opportunities for diversion programs rather than jailed due to drug charges, allegedly murdered New York Police Officer Randolph Holder.
Furthermore, the use of trickery and deceit is not uncommon, with the widespread use of DNA evidence, many once guilty victims have been exonerated of their crimes and set free. Psychology reveals that current interrogation practices can lead to false confessions and should no longer be used within the criminal justice system. Previous interrogation methods Police interrogation methods from the late nineteenth century till the 1930s used a method called third-degree. This method often involved police inflicting physical or mental pain onto suspects
Though he was influenced by Darwin, Lombroso misunderstood his work and considered criminals evolutionary throwbacks of primitive forms (Mazzarello, 2011). Trait theory has evolved over time from Garofalo’s sociological tilt (crime is an immoral act that is injurious to society) to Enrico Ferri (focused on social and economic factors that motivate criminals) to a modern, biosocial trait theory, which theorizes each person is mentally and physically unique, does not possess equipotentiality (equal potential to learn and achieve), and has developed traits at birth or soon after that affect social functioning and affect criminal behavior. Physical, environmental, and social conditions work in concert to produce behavior. The last part of the theory states, instincts affect learning (rape or desire of males to control
After reading both articles about incarceration, I am in more support of the article The Greatest Correctional Myth: Winning the War on Crime Through Incarceration. There are many reasons as to why I chose to support the claims made in this article. Firstly, almost everyone who has been previously incarcerated or is currently incarcerated will eventually be released back into society. With that being said, the way our correctional system is set up is not beneficial for those released convicts. Having individuals locked up and hidden from society is not the right way to go about punishment.
Introduction Crime has been an inexorable social ill dating back to civilisation era. Still omnipresent today, modern offences come in various types and some has become more sophisticated. While there is no universal standard definition for crime, this paper will adopt the legal definition from Black’s Law Dictionary where crime is “an act committed or omitted, in violation of a public law, either forbidding or commanding it”. Illegal activity, crime and offences will be used interchangeably henceforth. Criminal will be used to describe an individual who has committed a crime regardless arrested or not.
That there are severe imperfections in the justice system which could likely result in a situation where innocent victim might be executed can be seen in the review of cases by the Supreme Court. That it is biased against the poor and the marginalized can be seen in the socio-economic profile of the convicts. It is violation of the right to life and the right not to be treated cruelly. Yet, the government maintains that is effective in combating crime. It imposes the mandatory death penalty on 21 crimes while the other 25 crimes are death eligible.
