The Court system is responsible for deciding which crimes should be considered worth punishing for. As we look at the two different types of crimes such as mala in se and mala prohibita. Mala in se is considered to be “inherently evil” meaning such as robbery, murder, rape, etc that people in society have decided that should be banned due to its evil inhuman nature.

Muslims are also to blame for bringing terrorism to America and have gained so much power that they put fear in the citizens of victimized countries (Moore 1). The measure that criminals go to commit hate crimes is just devastating and harsh. These kinds of violence cause harm and strike fear in people not only in London but also places hearing of these horrific events. Nobody wants to be harassed or attacked for something that certain individuals in their culture did, and be stereotyped as that one
On Monday August 26th, Tom Robinson was found guilty of rape and sentenced to death. This verdict came after a long day in the Maycomb county court.

A first-hand witness for the prosecution, Mr. Bob Ewell, says he is more than relieved to see the defendant sentenced to death. "Tha ' man 's gone and raped my Mayella and s 'only right that he face the 'lectric chair for what he 's done!"

At the end of season four Dexter returns home to find his wife is murdered by his latest victim, a psychologist that would murder his patients.

A prosecutor from Los Angeles County, known as Christopher Darden, argued that Simpson murdered his ex-wife in a rage filled with jealousy. The prosecution displayed its case by playing a recording of a 911 call that Nicole Brown Simpson had made on January 1, 1989. Fear was expressed from Nicole that Simpson would physically abuse her and was easily heard yelling at her in the background.
Racism was known for a long time ago since human creation, it had many negative consequences on the human race such as wars, and it also created disunion between different categories. Moreover, racism can be defined as the act that values a certain race or class over the others and give them the right to take control over the other categories, this right of control is due to the fact that these other categories are from a different back ground (Religion, race, sex….etc.). Racism is one of the biggest problems in our modern society, a lot of wars were caused by it and due to this fact it is considered as a major contributor to social unrest. It is a huge problem that requires acknowledgment. There are three different kinds of racism, direct discrimination, indirect discrimination and harassment.
Gay marriage is one of the most controversial and sensitive issues in the modern world.
