The technology advancements alone have led to several cold cases freeing the wrongfully convicted. What are some of the contributing factors wrongful convictions? There is no way to make a right for the justice system can do for those wrongfully convicted. The loss of time however, there have been some initiatives about compensation for the errors that have happen. The public opinion is so strong when it comes to catching these criminals.
The execution of a life has always been one of the most harsh forms of punishment from the beginning of time. Though the capital punishment is widely accepted for people that commit crimes such as murders, rape, or bombings, the death penalty is still unfair in some cases. The death penalty still is not the right form of punishment because it is unfair to selective races and social statuses and in some cases, it is too merciful. Numerous cases and events could prove that the death penalty has always been biased towards certain groups of people. This is true considering that the rich white man has a smaller chance of getting the death penalty than the impoverished colored man.
Karl Capek's The Last Judgement, is an allegory to the flaws in the United States judicial system. “Am I to mention his good deeds?” “Thank you” said the presiding judge, but it isn't necessary.” shows that despite the fact that Kugler is there for a trial, or reflection of his life, the judges are not willing to take into account the good deeds that he has done in his life, they are only going to focus on the sins he has committed (Capek, 3). This is similar to the unfair process in our judicial system of when a person is convicted of a crime, they have the right to a speedy trial, but if they cannot pay their bond they will have to sit in jail, even if they are innocent, until their trial. In heaven, as Karl Capek writes in The Last Judgment,
The reader fully understands how evil the man is at the end of the story, when you see the amount enjoyment he gets for making people do horrible things. Other dark characters in the story are Goody Cloyse, the minister, and Deacon Gookin because they are supposed to be the role models of the town and they are committing evil acts. The characters in “I want to Know Why” are mostly average people. They make mistakes like any other person, but they are not grim and evil like the characters from “Young Goodman Brown”. The only person who might be seen as bad is the guy who wins the race in Saratoga and he didn't really do anything wrong it was just wrong in the eyes of the
The diner scene shows how and why criminals commit the crimes they do, and it is comical to see them give reasoning as to why they commit the crime just seconds before they decide to commit it. “The Bonnie situation” is another excellent example because it shows the disregard the mobsters and the other people involved have for the gruesome crime that was just committed, and they did not act in the way we would have supposed. Dark humor’s purpose is to display both tragedy and humor through morbid satire, something that Pulp Fiction
Walter Berns about capital punishment argue that the death penalty is morally acceptable because the law should care about victims of crimes and also care to people anger 's to criminals. Berns believe that the criminals violate the law, the human dignity, and the justice of the society therefore they are responsible for their crimes and must be punished. He stresses that punishing the criminal person to death improves the people 's respect and increases their abiding for the law. Berns illustrates his point by the story of a man that commits few murder crimes and then resealed in the society and he came back on the street again. Those who disagree with Walter Berns criticize his theory that the anger is not morally
Police Procedurals emphasize the increased vulnerability of the investigator and the victims or as in this case, the serial killer, on account of the pressure from the wealthy and the influential. The system they work for is corrupted. Waits’ confession of guilt with regard to Gesto’s case is in accordance with the force and pressure, imposed on him by conspirators, but in actuality, he did not commit the murder. It is an injustice done to him. They use Waits for their benefit because he is powerless in the face of authority.
The abuse of power is all around us, and Civil Forfeiture is no exception. The idea behind this process is something that could really help our country, but unfortunately when put in the hands of certain authority figures it loses that privilege and becomes increasingly negative towards American citizens. Of course there are many examples as to how Civil Forfeiture is not used properly, but the most obvious one is the abuse of innocent people. Police do not only target criminals but people who have done nothing to break the law. They do this in order to benefit themselves finically, as particular states have laws in place where the officer gets to keep one hundred percent of the money seized.
Is it right for the citizens to have to take the disrespectful treatment certain cops give them? Of course not all officers of the law are like this. They all have the good, the bad, and the ugly. It’s the scumbags that harass people and take advantage of the badge and gun that give police officers a bad name. But if all police officers know that they can get away with certain things and they are aware of the things they can get away with, then eventually humanity will see an even bigger threat to society than what these police officers say is a threat.
But And Then There Were None for the first time not only examines justice, but it also bends the whole idea of mystery by punishing the ones who actually deserved the respective judgement but remained safe by unfair means. Therefore, the killings on Indian Island are arguably acts of justice. In simple words Justice Wargrave plays the role of a detective as well as a culprit on the murderer who punishes the guilty for their unethical past events. The indirect act of justice done on the island can be drawn in two ways depending on the readers where one can also keep in consideration the perspective of Wargrave that every murder victim deserve death or simply the fact that he actually had authority to sentence the judgements. At least some of the murders are unjust if we do not consider all of Wargrave’s victims murderers.
