If you were a victim during a riot occurring would you want to give revenge? Would you have done something about it? Honestly, revenge is not a good thing to do, it will only provoke worse things on occurring in the way. But also revenge is not a bad thing to do because that person wants justice into what had happened, they want equality; therefore there is no right or wrong answer. The ideas in the reading “The forgotten victim from Florence and Normandie” by Steve Lopez are agreeable.
The central idea behind Jean Hampton's Moral Education Theory of Punishment (MET) is that it is best to educate criminals on their wrongdoings without handing down any physical punishments or ramifications. Hampton believes that excessive harm is not a moral response to a crime committed by a person. Rather, she argues that the point of basic punishment is to teach the wrongdoer that the action they did or wanted to do is forbidden, on the basis that it is morally wrong according to society. Therefore, according to Hampton, it is much healthier to educate criminals rather than handing down difficult physical punishments, which simply hurts the criminal and can be unproductive. To elaborate, Hampton proposes that any form of punishment is justified
The elimination of any potential grey area creates a stark contrast between a supposed hero and a supposed villain, a depiction that is often not only quite erroneous but also unfair. Specifically, although the exclusion of “state terror” may make discussion easier (Gage 78), it also hinders important conversation with regards to government oppression and potentially justified retaliation on the part of “rebels” (Gage 78). With this limitation of discussion comes about an inherent stifling of questioning, particularly with regards to the status quo. This, thus, enables not only violent actions of the state to be largely left out of discussion, but also violent actions that encourage the status quo and reactionary sentiment. Right-wing violence that seeks to protect a status quo receives less reaction and intervention from governments than left-wing violence that seeks change (Gage 89).
However, it is argued that drugs should be panned in sports because they will affect people 's health and it may lead them to death. In the article, "Illegal substances," Roman (2011) writer Drugs usage in sports should be panned at any cost for many reasons. The first reason why drugs should be panned is because drugs can cause death. Many people think that if they took drugs or hormones they will be stronger, faster and much more better than the other, will this is true, but it will cause sudden death and then being better or stronger won 't matter.
The court system should acknowledge the offenders past and realize that the reasons they are committing crimes are not their free will, it is elements in their past that have caused them to act in a deviant manner. Furthermore, Cullen and Johnson (2017) agree by stating, “science has demonstrated that un-chosen individual traits (e.g., temperament, self-control, IQ) and un-chosen social circumstances (e.g., family, school, community) can be
Our amendment rights should not be neglected as it will just represent the wrong message to society. In addition, the death penalty also wastes a larger amount of taxpayers’ money compared to normal criminal punishments. Lastly, no research has proven that death penalty will lower the number of capital crimes, but has proven that innocent people may have been sentenced with the death penalty. Death penalties do not serve justice, but only serve as a disguise to mask cruelty.
The next myth is that “Spanking is Harmless” Straus claims through research that spanking increases delinquicy, criminal behavior and many other violent actions. In my opinion spanking is not a direct cause for increased risk in these actions but rather it is more likely that spanking occurs in areas where kids grow up to be more deliqeunt and have criminal behavior like poor neighborhoods. The last myth I will be discussing is the myth that “If you don 't spank, your children will be spoiled or run wild”. With this myth Strauss argues that spanked children are more likely to be running wild than non spanked children. In my opinion this all relies on the two factors I stated previously which are the way your child is born and the way you raise your child.
Though A’s act was voluntary, through no fault of his own he did not understand the reality what he was doing. It would therefore be very harsh to find A culpable for B’s death. So A has proven himself to be a danger to others and will need expert treatment before being allowed to return to society. The law deals with these situations by treating insane offenders as patients who bear no criminal responsibility for their actions, but who must go under medical care if medical experts think it is necessary. For this reason the issue of insanity in criminal law has been very controversial, being seen oftentimes as a ruse to avoid criminal punishment.
Aside from the fact that capital punishment may be an unfair punishment at times, not only does it gives the culprit no chances for rehabilitation, but can also be a miscarriage of justice; if someone were to be found innocent after having been executed, there 's no way to bring the person back meaning they have been killed because of human error. Sometimes the execution may go wrong and take longer than expected. The problem with killing a criminal is we never know if the methods used today caused him/her pain. If a person deserves to be harshly punished, imprisonment may be the answer. Say a murdering pedophile was incarcerated, considering a vast number of his inmates were abused as children, it isn 't unheard of for them to gang-rape, castrate, stab, beat to death or behead him.
Justice keeps us safe, and helps bring what is fair to the people. Revenge is such a childish word. Revenge destroys sosietys, and takes away from that good there is. Some say that justice is unfair, but that 's the great part of it, is you can continue to fight and fight to get what you
