Dahmer is known to engage in sexual activities with the corpses and save body parts as trophies. When he is finally caught and arrested, he attends his trial. Dahmer 's plea stating he is not guilty be reason of insanity would be denied, however (Biography.com Editors). Though the psychologist in this case has lost against the prosecution, many believe that the decision to put him in a more monitored prison is made strictly out of fear.

In 1999 the Queensland police retried Carroll on Perjury and once again the jury found Carroll guilty. They had substantial new evidence with more witnessed and developments in forensic technology. Once again Carroll appealed and was acquitted as the high courts found it “abuse of process” as they were trying to get around the double jeopardy laws. The Law of double jeopardy is meant to stop people who have been tried once for a crime not to be tried again for the same crime. It 2“prevents prosecutors from repeatedly bringing charges against a defendant in hopes of eventually getting a guilty verdict” .This gives the accused once acquitted or found innocent a sense of security as they can move on with their lives without worrying about being retried.
Some deserve it because they non-repentance killers or to be serial killers while other should not deserve it because of the circumstances required them. Juveniles who killed people without any mercy should be treated as an adult and be given Juvenile Life Without Parole(JLWOP). For example, the murderer of Jennifer Jenkins’ pregnant sister and her husband. Jennifer describes, “[Jenkins’s Sister] begged for the life of her unborn child as [the killer] shot her. He reported to a friend, who testified at his trial, about his ‘thrill kill’ that he just wanted to ‘see what it would feel like to shoot someone’”(Jenkins).
This proves to be significant because this shows the lengths that Ronnie is willing to go to in order to keep his friend safe. Withholding information from the police about a murder can make you an accessory to the crime, despite knowing this he was willing to lie and possibly endanger himself. Obstructing justice so that your friend can be safe is a very difficult decision to make, as it affects more than just you. The parents of Gene Hanlon would be devastated to not know how their son died, the police will have spent lots of their time and money on a case that only two people truly understand how it unfolded. The soldier in the story “Gregory” also made many sacrifices for his friend, but in a much more subtle way.
I can agree with most part, but I have concern about persons who have been convicted of any felony. What happen when the spouse convicted a shoplift felony when he/ she was young and already received punishment under the law? To me, it doesn’t sound fair to judge someone qualification of the role base on maybe a small mistake from the pass. Also, I think there should be some kind of standard or investigation to decedent’s family on moral turpitude.

The action the government takes to punish people with their criminal record which the government has been doing for a long now till today. The author Foss believe that reforming justice system will help to replace wrath with the chances that will change people’s lives for better than destroying them with criminal record.

Peterson reported to the police department without hesitation and denied all accusations against him. Three of Peterson’s co-workers came forward and said that on the time in which the victim 's body was found dead, they were with Peterson. But after multiple interrogations, threats of prosecution and questionable police tactics” (Innocenceproject.org) his co-workers changed their stories and said that he confessed to the murder after a ride home from work. I’m sure you can guess how this went for Mr. Peterson, he later stood trial and was sentenced to life in prison. When DNA testing came into play Peterson, lucky, was offered a re-try to prove his
However, some arguments against capital punishment can be used to defend capital punishment. Putting someone on death row does cause psychological suffering, but those who commit horrendous murders deserve the pain. It makes sure justice is truly served; they killed, so they will be executed. That person being executed will bring closure and relief to the families of the
With capital punishment in place, it would provide comfort and closure to the family of the deceased. To fix the problems of not having the death penalty, we can amend the Charter of Rights and Freedoms to say “everyone has the right to life, except if a person takes the life of another” and “any person charged with murder will be subjected to capital punishment” so that people may once again feel that criminals get what they
The Death Penalty Protects our Society The death penalty is a punishment of execution, administered to someone legally convicted of a capital crime. William Tucker, a journalist and author of Vigilante, states that “after the death penalty was abolished, murder rates nearly tripled, rising to an all-time high in the 1980s.” Abolishing the death penalty will cause more murders in our community, and overpopulate our prisons. Many people that oppose the death penalty believe that it kills innocent people, but in reality, most innocent people are released before their sentence.
