The Crucible is a play written in 1953 by Arthur Miller. When accused of witchcraft by his former servant, Mary Warren, John Proctor finds himself stuck between confessing to save his life or staying true to himself/his principles and face being hanged.

It is acceptable to sacrifice your life for your principles because it allows you to maintain your sense of self as well as preserve the respect others have for you.

Majority of the police officers do not know what to do or how to handle people with a mental illness disease.

Some police officers do not recognize if the individual should or not go to jail or a treatment center or medical facility. The impact of law enforcement and the judicial system dealing with people with a mental illness is to assist the inmates with the help they need.

In his youth, Greg Ousley was burdened with the tension that developed between his parents and himself. Due to being misunderstood by his parents, the tension simply built up within him until he had reached and irrational conclusion. In Scott Anderson’s article, “Greg Ousley Is Sorry for Killing His Parents. Is That Enough?”, Ousley revealed the details regarding the night he decided that he had no choice but to kill his parents (Anderson 7,8).

The case was quite controversial as there was blatant evidence that his actions were premeditated , yet he was still a minor. However, the unique circumstances of his upbringing could have acted
"The state has not produced one iota of medical evidence to the effect that the crime Tom Robinson is charged with ever took place. It has relied instead upon the testimony of two witnesses who evidence has not only been called into serious question on cross-examination, but has been flatly contradicted by the defendant. The defendant is not guilty, but somebody in this courtroom is" (Harper 203).
In the case of Tara Brown’s murder, various groups of individuals are affected. As well as maintaining principles of fair punishment and deterrence, the criminal justice system has to consider perceptions of the victim’s family (secondary victim), the community’s demand for crime prevention, and the offender’s rights to a fair court hearing. The most likely outcome is imprisonment for Lionel John Patea due to committing an indictable offence. It is important to note that if this was only a case of domestic abuse without murder, it would utilise more time, effort and expenses to come to a resolution. This is due to the different circumstances and degree of abuse that the judge has to assess. Offenders of murder have to face at least 30 years
