Everyone makes mistakes in life, some are excusable and some are not. Thomas Hobbes felt that if there were no contract then people would just act on instinct- rape, pillage etc- human beings in their natural state are inclined to war and distrust. There is a reason why we have the prison system, so that criminals pay for their actions and to protect the people. He states he has a wife that is expecting and two kids on the way. If he is a good and harmless guy as he states he is then it would never cross his mind to being involved in an
I believe that this is a sensitive topic for both genders and I don’t have adequate knowledge to state whether absolutely agree or disagree with the abolition of adultery law. So, considering from what I understand and believe is that if we are seeing married couples just as living creatures falling in love and cheating, I agree with the abolition of adultery law because it’s not the public business to handle. At the same time, we as humans, we can’t really control our emotions and feelings of love, and after all, what is the difference between cheating in casual couples and married couples? I mean, here is where I get confused because sometimes when we think about love, we are more towards the “animalistic” theme that sometimes sounds romantic
In Turner v. Safley (1987), the Supreme Court ruled in favor of restricting prisoners Constitutional rights. According to the ruling, the restriction of rights is Constitution if “reasonably related to legitimate penological [i.e. safety] interests.” Jeffs communicates sermons and regulations from prison, and limiting the community between Jeffs and the hierarchy of Short Creek attempts to severe ties between Jeffs and the FLDS. Satinder Singh, an ACLU attorney, said “…prisoners can limit communication, including mail and visits….However, the prison can’t suppress Jeffs free speech rights just because it doesn’t like what he has to say (Singh).” While Jeffs ideologies continue to dictate the infrastructure of Short Creek, minimizing communication enhances the chances of stopping the theocratic rule in Short Creek. Dr. Tarby after encountering
People aren’t ready to forgive felons for what they have done in the past and believe they shouldn’t be given their rights back. If there exists a way for a former felon to regain their rights in some states they should at least allow clemency in every state that disenfranchises felons. If clemency exists than someone out there sees that some felons deserve to regain their rights and if they don’t deserve it they would probably end up in jail again, so former felons should be given their rights back after some sort of process to check whether they are actually ready to regain their rights. This process should be mandatory after serving your jail time so that you can easily regain your rights without having to go through the rough process of
Although Rousseau and Hobbes believes that people good or bad through their human nature ,actually our decisions make our nature because we are not born just good and just bad. “We all make choices, but in the end our choices make us.” (Ken Levine). Through comparison between good versus evil the person stands in doubt or even undecided; many people will choose the good path others will choose the evil, but who is the person who makes judgments whether is it good or not ? We all have separate views from everyone else, in addition there is a huge difference in our opinions, like someone who stealing money, people should be arrested and put in jail. But what if that person had a dying family member and no more money to pay medical bills?
In the documentary The Release it was saddening to see what happens to prisoners who have been diagnosed with mental illnesses. These people have committed serious crimes but even while they have committed these serious crimes we should set out to help these people and look more into the reasons why they have committed these crimes. Watching the film showed and proved with many of the cases that prison is not a place for the mentally ill. While many of the mentally ill offenders were imprisoned and while there they have gotten medications they needed, they need more than just that. In the prisons they destroy themselves due to not getting the help they need which makes it not a place for people with mental illnesses.
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.
The major difference comes to suffering and humiliation. Peter believed he was willing to go to prison and even death for Jesus. Suffering is not a characteristic of a growing church if your paradigm is based on top down hierarchy where those in authority base their agenda on a show of force, propaganda, lineage, and the use of God's name. The Passion of Jesus points us to lead by serving and through suffering. Jesus develops people, not agendas.
A huge problem across the nation is that offenders are returning to prison after previously being convicted of a crime. This may not seem like a big deal, but this shows that our prisons are failing us on the one thing the system promises to do, which is to keep us safe. Prison is supposed to be a place where we use deterrence to try and keep people from doing illegal things, but obviously it is not working. Since recidivism is such a huge issue, we need to find the issue and figure out how to resolve it to better our country and our people. First, let’s discuss the economic aspect of recidivism.
They can either keep silent or betray one’s friend, which correspond to a different prison term. There is a conflict of interest because both of they cannot be free at the same time. If one wants to be set free, he needs to betray and send his friend to prison. But if he does not want to send his friend to prison, he needs to keep silent and sacrifice himself to stay in prison.
Finally, my last suggestion would be to alter the labels of ex-felonies for minor violations, and changing how to use the criminal check box. Once an ex-convict paid for their time in prison for inferior crimes we should not label then as a felon, so that they can apply for jobs and do not have to check on the felony box when applying for a job. Consequently, ex-convict could get a better chance to be hired, so that they truly have a chance to readjust in the society. People that who are labeled as a felon have a hard time applying for jobs, housings, and getting food stamps, making it impossible to survive and to provide for their family. They can lose their kids, their home, and become homeless and in other cases going back to jail.
Criminal Justice: We, The Rainbow Party, believe that criminal justice should be very more different. Instead of the criminals facing time in prison we think they should just go to a rehabilitation center to get treated. Some criminals do the things they do because they have a mental problem and if they are just locked in a place full of other criminals they will only be influenced more harshly and won 't get the help they need. On the other hand, being in a rehabilitation center puts them in a position to be forced to get help and go to counseling. We as a party think prison is a harsh place were a very large amount of criminals come together and either argue and gang up on others or they stay far away in fear of getting raped or hurt.
It is clear to see that if incarcerated individuals could vote while in prison many negative factors they face would be prevented. However, Politician’s wouldn’t want this to happen because they know that this would go against or hurt their campaign for many reasons, one being they wouldn’t be able to successfully persuade both incarcerated individuals and those of us in society due to one party (incarcerated individuals or citizens) being able to benefit from the promises of the candidate and one not. This wouldn’t be beneficial to those who oversee private prisons either because they would be prosecuted if the truths came to light about the mistreatment and injustice of those who are in jail face in their day to day lives. These wrongdoings could be changed in many ways but if I had to step up and do it personally I would demonstrate through signing a petition or marching for change. Signing a petition that would speak out and highlight things that need to change to ensure a safe life for their inmates would ultimately cause the overseers to consider my proposition to prevent a scandal.
A broken finger is a minor, non-life threatening injury, and could have occurred while the prisoner resisted the officers. If the prisoner decides to file a petition in court, he could use the Whitley v Albers case as a precedent and the eighth Amendment’s cruel and unusual punishment along with excessive force to argue his case. 2. A prisoner was prescribed medications that made him feel unpleasant, but prison officials forced him to take the medications regardless of his protests. This inmate has a case against prison officials
