Citizens within the two countries have either separate or supportive attitudes towards the country’s views on capital punishment. In The Bahamas a greater majority of the population is for capital punishment than those against the practice. This is especially the case of those persons linked to murder victims and victims of other heinous crimes. It greatly frustrates Bahamians to see the murder count rising annually and feeling as though the government is not taking steps to enforce laws which may deter crime. I can recall many instances on national television and social media where persons suggest that the government enforce the death penalty in the form of protests and writings.
They are either given tickets and left off with a warning or spend 1 night in jail some of the cases like vandalism will require them to do community service and others like drug possession can land them into jail for a few years. Then there are bigger crimes that are more serious like murder, manslaughter, rape, Assault with the intention of killing, Arson etc. These offences come with harsh punishment like life imprisonment, many years in prison sometimes if a person has murdered someone multiple times they are known as serial killers and will be taken into death penalty. Ways they caught suspected criminals in the middle ages In the middle ages there was no police force but instead of the police force the villagers would suspect something had happened they would scream at the top of their voices and everyone who heard them would have to
DNA was tested long after Mr. Washington's sentencing showed that he was NOT the rapist. Whilst some say that it is just one person, however, one living person is still a life! It is simply not acceptable! Various cases have found that many innocent people have been falsely accused of murder, and they can’t do anything about it because the person is diseased. A man spent five years of his life on death row in Oklahoma for a crime he did not commit!
The rest are either probationers under supervision in their communities, or people on parole after serving their prison sentences from soup to nuts. Thirty U.S. states deny voting rights to convicts on probation, and thirty-five states disenfranchise parolees. In the most extreme cases, eleven states carry on denying voting rights even to some “ex-felons” who have successfully fulfilled their prison, parole, or probation sentences.Most of americans agree that Ex-felons should be able to vote, yes, but so should prisoners themselves?! To some, the idea may seem risky, unnecessary or even unconscionable. But in fact, there are good reasons to embrace it.
"Never shall I forget that night, which has turned my life into one long night, seven times cursed and seven times sealed...... Never shall I forget those moments which murdered my God and my soul and turned my dreams to dust. Never shall I forget these things, even if I am condemned to live as long as God Himself." The air filled with the smell of burning flesh that reminded Jews of the death. The gigantic flames were leaping up from a ditch that had devoured millions of souls. The lorries on the conveyor were not delivering loads but human beings.
The jews were experimented on, killed, starved, worked to death, or a sick as can be. No one was thought to be human in this death camp. The working conditions, living conditions and executions were disgusting and tragic. It is sad that the only way someone could survive in the camp was if they did not freeze to death and could play an instrument. The doctor who was supposed to help experimented on children and killed them just to dissect them, ALso the man who sent innocents to gas chambers.
According to many people’s beliefs, getting rid of gun is a long and hard process. But it is not as hard as normal people think it is. A neighbour country that is a lot like America has been able to enforce laws following a deadly mass shooting that shocked the nation called Port Arthur mass shooting in 1996 and thus forced the Australia to pass sweeping gun control laws known as buy back, this created a major outcry, but soon all guns were bought back and destroyed, or securely locked up. Since then there had been 0 mass shooting, and use of guns had dropped by factors of 18 percent., and there was 0 mass shooting since then, with 13 mass shooting before in the past 18 years. The most remarkable thing is that it was done under 3 and a half months.
Over the past decades millions of civilians have been victims of those atrocity crimes as genocide, crimes against humanity, grave war crimes, and other gross human rights violations. As a response to these crimes it was voiced that these atrocities should never happen again and perpetrators should not go unpunished. Because, too often perpetrators committed atrocity crimes as a result of impunity. To close the “impunity gap” several tribunals were created, examples are the International Military Tribunal, the ICTY, and the ICTR. Still, with these tribunals, only a part of the perpetrators were reached and the “impunity gap” was still not closed.
“Today the death penalty is still used in 32 states in America, including the state I live in—Ohio” (Bushman). There are 50 states in America, and over half of them have legalized the death penalty. The consequence of the death penalty could be considered people getting what they deserve for taking someone’s life, but there is a huge debate on whether the death penalty is unconstitutional or not. Although some say the death penalty deters crime, it should be illegal in the United States. Historically, murdering or raping ended in the death of the defendant.
But the very law also provides a chance to the accused to a free and fair trial under the constitution and no extra judicial killing (The Blasphemy Laws: A Pakistani Contradiction, Sahar Khan 2012). In Pakistan since the introduction of blasphemy law in country from 1986 to 2010 over 1274 individuals were charged with blasphemy allegation and alarming over 51 were killed before their judicial trial was completed or they were convicted by courts. In 2014, out of total 67 stories of two leading English and two leading Urdu daily newspapers of Pakistan researcher finds out 18 stories were anti-minorities and only 14 were neutral (Working under the shadow of Taboo & Blasphemy: Coverage of Minorities in Pakistani Press under the Blasphemy Law Tabinda
