The principle in law that one is innocent until proven guilty has created much discourse. There are those who feel that the moment that one is arrested, there is reasonable belief that they committed the crime. However, there are those who feel that just as the principle states, one is, and should be taken as a victim and the outcome could be either way: guilty or not guilty. In fact, this argument is supported by the many cases of malicious prosecutions and mistaken identities.
Eyewitness misidentification is a major problem that has an effect on adequate policing. One major goal and priority of law enforcement is justice. They should focus on prosecuting the correct person because if they are prosecuting the wrong person they are ruining an innocent persons life and justice is not being served. Many problems can arise from misidentification. It often leads to an innocent persons rights being infringed on.
This played a large role in the dehumanization role because by taking away the beliefs of the Jews, which is a big part of their identity, they were reduced to shells of the people they
Elie Wiesel said "combat indifference, intolerance and injustice¨(Biography 2).

The Whites and Rosaura, known as the protagonists in both stories, desires to change their fate, but were punished because it made their lives worse than it’s normal routine.

Retribution is punishment inflicted as a form of vengeance. Deterrence is the instillation of fear of punishment in a potential offender. Incapacitation in the context of corrections is setting punishments that prevent crime but not necessarily deterring it. Lastly, rehabilitation in corrections refers to the restoration of someone who is convicted back into society. Currently, the main focus of our corrections system is a crime-control model.
The way Callahan goes through the process will lead to problems by opening the door to others who may not be as principled as Callahan. It will then be harder to stop this progression and bring things back under the normal rule of
Haag (2007) writes that the death penalty is feared more than imprisonment because of its finality in that the person is excommunicated from the living. As such, it is a more effective and necessary form of punishment. Berns (1996) writes that the law must be “inspiring or commanding ‘profound respect or reverential fear’” for it to be effective in deterring criminals. However, people in favor of abolishing the death penalty can argue that despite its deterrence benefits, the life of the murderer is important. This means that the victim’s life is less important even though the offender is the one who has committed a crime.
A jury, lawyer, or a judge will not be able to know exactly what the person was thinking during the time the criminal committed the crime. Only the criminal will know his intent. This means a lawyer is unable to “prove” the intent of the criminal, which leads to no other form of punishment than a criminal with no intent. If a criminal was found of prejudicial motivation, it is “unconstitutional to punish him for it” because the reason of punishment violates the First Amendment
David Ricardo’s work “On The Principles of Political Economy and Taxation” written in 1817 is the example of classical writings about economics. The point Ricardo makes in Chapter 7 “On Foreign Trade” is generally that trade is beneficial and a basis for trade is comparative advantage (1817). The essay states that comparative advantage can be a reason for international trade; however there are still problems with its implication in practice. To prove that this paper will first explain Ricardo’s comparative advantage theory. Second, it will provide an example of Kazakhstan and Russia for more explanation.
Based on my knowledge on conspiracy I believe that the RICO act is necessary but can also be not useful depending how the defendant pleads his case. Conspiracy is defined as a secret plan by a group to do something unlawful or harmful. I think the RICO act is necessary because part of me believes that organizations would continue to get away with heinous crimes if the act was non-existing. Another reason to I believe RICO is necessary is because it has been important to up and coming laws. RICO has led to revitalizing the interest in civil punishment.
I think that the court systems should have a little more power when it comes to choosing due process or criminal control. If the person is a first time offender and it is a small crime then I think they should have the right to defend themselves. On the other hand if the person is being prosecuted for the second or more time for the same type of offense or if it was an offense that is very bad then I feel that they need to be punished for the crimes that they have committed. I do believe that there should be balance because not all court cases need to be dealt with to the extreme of punishments but then there are some cases and individuals that never seem to learn so they need to be dealt with in a different way to deter them and others from committing those same
It is very important to make good ethical decisions because one unethical decision could ruin someones career. I learned that if criminal justice professionals will just stick to their ethical guidelines then their job would be more easy to handle. I believe that if criminal justice professionals approach situations the right way instead of the way that they want to then things would run a lot smoother when professionals come across situations where they have to handle a witness, an informant, a victim, or maybe even a criminal. I also learned that if a criminal justie professional makes unethical decisions then it could turn bad for the situation at hand. It is essential that criminal justice professionals make the best ethical decisions possible because it affects everyone in the situation.
