Even if A ends up dying B is not liable for A’s death. He may only merely have a moral obligation to help but he cannot be charged with murder or battery. Basically, B cannot be prosecuted for his failure to act. Although this is the general principle, it is subject to exceptions. Where a person is under a duty to act and he fails to do so he is deemed to be criminally liable for the omission.
In the case of recklessness it is sufficient that a person not think about the possible results or take risk on the fact they don’t think the outcome is likely. Where as for knowledge, similar to oblique intention the defendant “ shuts his eyes and fails to enquire because he is virtually certain what the answer will be” (e.g. Ross v.Moss  2QB 369), in this case the court will invoke the doctrine of wilful blindness, the defendant will be considered to have actual knowledge. Therefore the extent to what the defendant foresaw is key. On the other hand the argument could be that its not a distinguishing factor due to the similarities regarding foresight between intention and knowledge.
Negligence is the most important in modern tort law. It mainly involves the compensation of others who have suffered damage caused by the negligence of the people, but the law does not provide relief for everyone who is affected in this way. One of the main ways is to limit their access to compensation for the principle of duty of care. Essentially, it was decided under what circumstances one would pay to another neglect a legal concept: If the law says you do not take care of the responsibility of individuals or organizations hurt you, you will not be liable to the party negligence, regardless what a serious damage. To advise Anne, we must first decide whether or not Calvin duty of care owed to her.
Furthermore, Socrates would never rationalize breaking the law because it would be violating an agreement made between the citizen and the state. The state is responsible for taking care of its citizen, whether it is in the form of education, health or protection and in return the citizen should follow the laws set by the state. Socrates mentioned that “it is impious to bring violence to bear against your mother or father; it is much more so to use it against your country”(Plato 54). In addition, Socrates believes that even though an injustice has been done one cannot amend the wrongdoing with injustice. “That neither to do wrong nor to return a wrong is ever correct, nor is doing harm in return for harm done”(Plato
(Groundwork of the Metaphysics of Morals). Thus, while Karen Ann’s parents may have made a decision based on what they consider to be her right to dignity, as stated by Kant, they are doing a wrong to her and themselves as well as breaking a critical universal moral rule. Their decision to not let Karen Ann stay on the respirator is passive as opposed to active, and is an imperfect duty to themselves. A virtuous approach to the right to die debate emphasizes less on actions and more on the character of the person who performs the action. According to virtue ethics the opportunity to choose how and when to die is not by itself sufficient to ensure a good death.
Guilt and innocence only matter if someone has the ability to stop themselves from carrying out their desires. If life has determined a person to make that choice no matter what, then how can anyone blame another person or find them guilty of that act? Society can disagree with their actions, but society cannot blame them for it. Basically, a criminal justice system in a society with no free will would be redundant. It would be an illusion of justice.
Although the plaintiff was unaware of the officers’ presence, if the plaintiff tries to leave the office, the police officers can stop him from doing so. The courts held that the plaintiff does not need to be aware of the imprisonment, thus overruling Herring’s case. There is an intention to commit an act to detain, knowledge of the detention is unnecessary and false imprisonment will still be established. An exception of determining false imprisonment is when the plaintiff enters the property under certain conditions. In Robinson v Balmain Ferry Co Ltd, there was no false imprisonment because the plaintiff was subjected under the ferry’s regulation that a payment must be made upon entry and exit of the ferry.
It's anything but difficult to see that the establishments of cutting edge human advancement were not based on a rationality of good relativism. The very demonstration of passing a law and authorizing it recommends a settled standard that everybody is required to cling to. The explanations behind this are self-evident: if everybody in a general public truly, genuinely went about just as good and bad were absolutely matters of sentiment, then society would implode into a clash of "might makes appropriate." In an ethically relativistic culture, the main all inclusive motivation to do (or not do) anything is to maintain a strategic distance from the results from one's companions. Every single human law include some ethical rule being upheld by risk of results.
Who is to say that one norm is more normal or morally correct and another is not? Confusion in me turned to a sense of justice. It may not be “normal” for someone to have a different sexual orientation or religious view than somebody else; however, denying someone their right to be that or to believe that is most certainly not the norm. This distinction can be made because norms are not written rules or laws, but our laws and the constitution has been written down and they prevent discrimination based on a whole host of things, making them social norms that everyone must adhere to or must suffer the
It can be arguably said that the loss of confidence on the administration of justice. The courts have decided on the ends without looking at the means of the ends. Lord Templeman stated in Reid that propitiatory rights applies when if it is a bribe but not secret benefits is undesirable as it goes to blameworthiness or moral culpability which does not promote principal reasoning or justification for the use of
