Is life in prison without parole better than the death penalty?

...The sentence of capital punishment is a barbaric action for punishment a criminal. Murder is unacceptable by society, yet people seem to approve killing criminals. Sentencing a criminal to death does not solve the questions and problems left behind, it just creates controversy.

...It has been debated whether or not a victim of crime should participate in the criminal prosecution process and if so to what extent they are allowed to participate.

Sociological school

...“Rules derived by a process of logical deduction from pre-established conceptions of contract and obligation have broken down before the slow and steady and erosive actions of utility and justice. We see the same process at work in other fields. We no longer interpret contracts with meticulous adherence to the letter when in conflict with the spirit. We read covenants into them by implication when we find them in conflict with them ‘instinct with an obligation’ imperfectly expressed. The l...

Characteristics of a White Collar Criminal

...Finally, it is important to consider the rate of employment between white collar offenders and offenders of non-violent, common crimes.

Therefore, steady employment is a necessity in order for the white collar offender to be successful. For many of the non-violent common offenders, their crimes are their employme...

Judicial Precedent

...Another objection which is quite often raised against precedent is that development of law through case-law more or less depends upon chance, because there is no test available for determining the validity of law made by precedent. Sometimes erroneous decisions of S.C. create practical problems for the subordinate judges as they are bound to follow these decisions howsoever wrong or defective. This adversely affects the growth and development of law in the right direction. But despite the afores...

Cheap Labor & Violation of Workers Rights Continue to Exist

Juvenile Justice

...Morals usually are the guiding principles in just about everybody's life. Humans generally tend to do what is considered to be "right" and astray from what is "wrong", but in some cases, people choose to do what is considered "wrong". However, people believe that children should be dealt with much more lightly because they're not adults yet. On the other hand, I disagree that children should be exempt from punishment, and I fully agree with the four justices that believe a child who commits a he...

Preventing Juvenile Delinquency

...Our justice system really needs to focus on better ways of rehabilitating our youth, or so I feel. On the other hand, I do like that some crimes have very harsh punishments because those are the ones that I see are committed less often. We also have to keep in mind that it is not society’s responsibility to raise our children, real teaching starts at home with proper parenting. In some parents’ defense, some kids are hard to maintain, but that’s when further measures should be taken, for e...

Community Base Correction

...This system has its impact on the society in general as well, as it helps the society understand and accept the fact that offenders are also a part of the society. There are some offenders who enter the community based correction programs without entering jails and some serve a part of their sentence in jail before entering the program.
