This is an important concept because it explains that officers should not follow society and pressure from the public and media but follow the laws that our country.

The first person she killed was a man named Richard Mallory; he was found in a junkyard with five more men’s bodies (College). Aileen Wuornos was found out and convicted with the death sentence; even if her sanity was questioned she was executed by lethal injection in 2002. On the psychological side of the scale, both Nature and Nurture are present in this case. Aileen had a very bad upbringing being abused, and abandoned which in tow would seem as if the nurture of her past drove her over the edge to commit those murders, but on the biological side of things her dad had some sort of problems as well, her father being a child molester that it could be argued that he gave her traits of being a molester, through heredity. This being said, in this case both nature and nurture had some play in part to why Aileen Wuornos became a serial

As long as good consequences for the most amount of people will result, it is considered moral. The Pre-Crime system also uses this rationale. Pre-Crime is all about the sacrifice of a few for the good of the many.

The reliability of Mr Eadie’s role as a witness was undermined because of this finding and it negatively affected his defence of criminal incapacity.
