I got to see a side of the criminal justice system that I have never seen before. After writing multiple papers on the War on Drugs, I am completely aware of the injustices it entails. Federal lawmakers impact lower-level, nonviolent drug defendants with their enactment of mandatory minimum sentencing guidelines, even though they are attempting to target high-level distributors. Incarceration of these people destroys their lives because a criminal conviction makes it harder to live a productive life as you are not eligible for certain jobs, loans, etc. All things considered, my experience at the King County Drug Diversion Court opened my eyes to some of the changes occurring in our justice system in regards to the War on Drugs.
Creon’s view Sophocles the author of Antigone (441 b.c.) Creon’s monologue grabs the reader's attention by making the readers think about how the law is important and you should never go back on their word. After Creon supersedes the place of the king and then Antigone is caught dusting the body of Polyneices, she is jailed and Haemon is tries to protect her as she will be his wife. As the monologue goes you notice regular uses of rhetorical devices such as pathos ,and logos. Creon uses these devices to further help his argument and persuade his people and his son haemon of doing the right choice by following his new rule of thwarting to bury polyneices.
It is divided into a section for each author: Moral and ethics, legalities and the legal problems. A problem highly critiqued in the book was the executing orders of superior personnel. Prior to the Nuremberg trials it was an accepted plea however in this instance the claim was rejected. Furthermore, it was stated that the Kellogg-Briand Pact did not sufficiently accommodate to the legalities in terms of the crimes against peace. The book states that the Nuremberg trials were indeed fair to the defence however, the allies used the trials as political vengeance.
Catch-22 is one of the most bizarre symbols of the book representing the fallacies of the bureaucracy. It is a situation in which one cannot escape due to circular logic. Catch-22 is a combination of words that are made to benefit those in power and force those who are incapable of navigating through the logical fallacies of the war. Those that are not in power are forced to obey what higher authority without question. Near the beginning of Yossarian’s chronology, he is still obedient of the law because it overrides any arguments that may arise.
Worrall appropriately points out that “any effective crime control strategy needs to be balanced against the possible argument that it threatens people's rights” (2008). Though this is true, there are too many cases of unethical civil forfeiture to ignore the problem. Controversy will always surround civil forfeiture because it has “powerful economic consequences” (Worrall, 2008), but every aspect of civil forfeiture must be examined so society can both see the merits of the system and stand up against the
You are correct that blame would kill creativity in the tech industry, because the industry thrives off of taking risks to shorten latency on projects or to try something nobody knows they need yet. 2I also concur that there needs to be an objective devil’s advocate, to make sure there isn’t just change for the sake of change. You address this and say this is your roll. But this is tricky, as I have ran into with running
Dear "Papery Newspaper," After I read your recent article, "Haywood Patterson Trial Strikes Again!" by Sophia Rowe, I felt the need to clarify what the article did not say. The public is ignorant to the significant problems that are being brought into our court every day and innocent lives are paying the price. This article specifically makes me angry and passionate for change. Many of you know about Judge Horton.
"Geeks" and "Nerds," do these terms sound well known to you? These are the terms we as often as possible utilization to put down a youngster who tries to think about truly hard so he/she can add to America. Be that as it may, have we ever considered may happen on the off chance that he/she is teased with those names over and over. To shield my point I might want to utilize an article, "America Needs its Nerds" by Leonid Fridman that discussions about how the keen individuals are put down because of their insight. He contrasts America and different countries, ended up being better in this circumstance.
Almost everything we do now is halfway done for us. Technology takes the need to have common sense and throws it away. People are so involved in technology now that they are unaware of what is actually happening around them. Technology may be important and to a certain degree absolutely necessary; however, in the movie Wall-E it is present that becoming too involved in technology will end up ruining our lives and everything around us. It is apparent that technology has many positive roles in daily lives, but looking deep into technology, the consequences of it can be quite alarming
I find personality tests pointless because I already know what my personality is, but I was never able to put it into words till now. I feel the Enneagram test and personality categories help to fully explain how I work. I can relate to almost/ if not everything in my category. For example, I like to address problems directly and when I commit to something I am too stubborn and can never quit it. I like to push people’s buttons and I find it entertaining when I get in an argument with someone and they get all flustered.
