Leadership in Criminal Justice Organizations

...Even though California allowed the prescription of marijuana to some of its citizens, it had no effect on drug trafficking from Mexico because the majority of marijuana is entered through Texas and Arizona. Overall, there is not any scientific evidence that would conclude that it will either increase nor decrease the amount of drug trafficking. McKinney (2008), “in a criminal justice organization, leadership is essential to the success of the goals of the organization” (para. Modern Leadersh...

The Six Forms of Punishment

...There are many types of sentencing’s and the punishment is depending on what sentence they give you. That’s why They punishment have certain things in common with the sentencing. The way I believe that we can modify the sentencing process is by looking at the records of the defendant and the level of crime he committed. Like for example if a person would commit a serious crime like murder or rape they should get the most time and punishment even if it’s there first time. The reason being s...

Without capital punishment

...I even heard this story from my grandfather that one of our past presidents was seen roaming around in public places without any presidential securities. This clearly shows how safe and peaceful the Philippines at that time. Thus, I believe that the death penalty is an effective way to achieve peace and order in our country. The reason behind that argument is based on my evaluation with the current justice system of our new government. Nowadays, most of the news headlines are pertaining to crime...

Maintaining an Individual’s Confidentiality and Disclosing Concerns

...Sometimes in the setting, situations arise where, for example, one child has hurt another and the other children may have seen the incident and made their parents aware and they may want information from you or other staff members; this is a difficult situation because you can’t help children discussing things but you need to remember that you still need to maintain confidentiality and not discuss the matter with anyone besides this child involved parent or carer. Another further area that may...

Crito Analysis

...Throughout Socrates’ discussions, he often has conversations with himself and the “Law”. Plato personifies the “Law” by giving it human-like qualities and speech; it is suggested that the Law can be hurt, and angry. He does this to distinguish it as a character that has feelings. For example, “’…you will leave this place, when you do, as the victim of a wrong done not by us, the Laws, but by your fellow men. But if you leave in that dishonorable way, returning wrong from wrong, a...

Shame Is Worth a Try

...By reading “Shame is worth a try’’, I have to agree that something by being shame, may be a better punishment than sending people to jail. The example of a mother had to write a newspaper article when she was caught buying marijuana with her children in the car. For me, this punishment is effective. Even though they seem not making any sense, but they are cheaper than sending them to jail. Also, By being shame, it make them embarrassment and the person has pay for what they did. But be hon...

Objectives of Punishment

...The rehabilitation process may help the offender find a job so that he or she may feel as if they are a part of society and this is a more permanent solution to this issue; whereas, reformation may be a temporary fix to the problem (Foster, 2006 pg. 67). Punishment assists with achieving institutional objectives in the criminal justice system by offering and incorporating programs that can deter criminals from further committing crime. Some of these programs may consist of therapeutic, education...

Assisted Suicide

...Most people who have been charged with assisting a suicide were let off. The charges were acquitted but not after fighting them in court. Learning more about assisted suicide and suicide in general would give more people more knowledge about assisted suicide and why it should be legalized. Most people were taught very young that killing yourself/someone is very bad so every time the topic about assisted suicide by physician comes up they say it’s wrong to kill yourself and it’s wrong to kill...

Prison and Asylum Reform in the 19th Century

...Dorothea Dix, in March of 1841, taught a Sunday class for woman at the East Cambridge Jail. This shows that she thinks that even if people are in jail or prison, that they are still people but just need to be world with. The question we are looking for is if prisons were meant for punishment or to help make these people better people for the future; future was a big question at that time. All in all, most of these reformers’ goals were met. They wanted change and they got it. They believed in ...

Ayson proposed that further...

The Effectiveness of Juvenile Curfews.

...Curfews should be enacted as a household policy. Parents should be the ones telling the teenager what time they can come home and what time they can go out. Some teenagers are knowledgeable in knowing what is right and wrong while other teenagers need more discipline But it should all be on the parent responsible for the teenager’s actions, the law should not have a say in that aspect. The authorities have a right to arrest a teenager who is doing wrong, but they shouldn’t have a say to how ...

Survival is a trait that many organized crime member’s exhibit. It is sometimes used to partake in illegal activities to sustain the worldly goods...

Gang Leader for a Day

...Venkatesh gives refreshingly honest, clear examples of his missteps.

Position of English law in the Malay States and its effect to the local law

Whereas, the Unfederated Malay States (UMS) rec...

The advantages and disadvantages of probation and parole

...Community supervision can never be enough monitoring for a person convicted of a crime. There’s a great percentage that has been proven that convicted felonies and ones convicted of misdemeanors tend to commit additional crimes which puts the community at a higher risk of being harmed. Increased social cost meaning the increased risk of new crimes, probation and parole increase the chance that added expenses will accrue to the community in the form of child support, welfare cost, housing expen...

Equal Pay for Equal Work

...Another law that can support this injustice is the “Public Law 88-352” (arhives.gov) which was passed by Congress in 1964. This civil right also” forbade discrimination on the basis of sex” (arhives.gov) in the workforce. As the data exposes, this prejudice against women is uncalled for and ultimately illegal. This social issue is incredibly unjust and belittling to the female population. It needs to be dealt with immediately. Women are not only as competent and educated as men, but they...

Sentencing Paper

...I feel that both models have their role in our criminal justice system. For misdemeanor and traffic convictions, a determinate model should be used. Most of these crimes are usually more cut and dry, and the fines or confinement is usually small. However, with felonies there is a much larger scope and more is involved. There is also a larger gap for confinement. When dealing with larger times, there are more factors. People learn at different rates and some may rehabilitate or reform faster than...

?Presumed Innocent until proven Guilty

...If you look around you, you are surrounded by life. It is the most valuable thing on our planet Earth. You are a representation of life yourself. Growing up and developing your life takes years, yet can be taken away from you in an instant because of something as stupid as false accusation? Who, then, is the real criminal? A man like Oscar Pistorius is a man fighting for his life in high court because he murdered his girlfriend Reeva. Although the reasons to why he pulled the trigger seem prepos...

Rhetorical Devices

...Repetition is very important in this speech; it helps create many different appeals to audience. Kelly repeats the phrase ‘while we sleep’, “while we sleep little white girls…And they will do so tonight, while we sleep” (Kelly) this repetition makes the audience think twice about what else is going on out there that we do not know about while we live our daily life’s.

Justice Delayed Is Justice Denied

...In vogue justice delayed justice denied is a very smooth saying. But it is not as easy to understand without clarification as to what actually is meant by the delay of justice. Justice is something meant to be handled at the present moment. Without justice system there can be no state worth the name. It is rightly called the shield of innocence and the guardian of civil right. This is so because, like Martin Luther King said, "Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere." But for a good...

Should Parents Be Punished for Crimes Their Children Commit?

...They are often blinded by this desire to be accepted and to blend in with the rest of their friends. Many a times, children are influenced by the wrong kind of peer pressure - pressure to behave inadequately, including committing crimes. The media is another powerful influence. The pervasiveness of the media makes it difficult for children to avoid all those violence and negative demonstrations in television programs, movies, music, and advertisements and so on. What children see and hear from t...

Indian Contract Act

...Another example is if ‘A’ says to ‘B’ that he will show the ‘B’ the hidden treasure by magic then it is also an impossible act because by magic we cannot show the hidden treasure. Therefore, these are the elements which has been explained to you if they are available in toto, if they are available as it is in an agreement then it will become a contract. If one single essential element of this is absent or one essential element of the valid contract is absent or missing then it ca...

Criminal Justice System

...The final process is corrections. The offenders are sent to prison, they are classified and assigned to facilities and treatment programs. If the judge gives them a suspended sentence they are placed on probation. When an offender serves part of their sentence and released they are placed on parole until they end of their sentence (CJi, 2014). There are 5 goals of the criminal justice system. They are deterrence, incapacitation, retribution, rehabilitation, and restoration. Deterrence inhibits ...

Sex Offenders

...It is not fair to a tier one offender to be treated that way, everyone makes mistakes. `Publishing of sex offenders also leds to "vigilantism, when neighbors learn of a sex offender's presence and decide to either drive him out of the neighborhood or cause him physical harm (Larson)".

Social issues in Criminal Justice Profession

...Violence against women is another social issue that plagues the Criminal Justice professional. Rape and battery of women is not an old issue, but it is a cultural issue. Women have been seen for years as the weaker species and therefore need to be controlled.

This menta...

Rhetorical Analysis – “Why Chinese Mothers Are Superior”
