Yes, an individual should be punished for their crimes but the effects of a felony conviction should not include or affect that person’s right to vote, finding employment, or the pursuance of a higher education. According to Olivares, Burton, and Cullen (1996) upon release these offenders also deal with stigmas, loss of job opportunities, friendships, family relationships, and denial of civil rights. When it comes to the loss of job opportunities, a recent study has shown that most employers have hired at least one person with a felony conviction (Sawnson, Langfitt-Reese & Bond, 2012). Employers encourage job seekers with criminal records to be honest and willing to discuss their involvement with the justice system. Most employers did not have strict policies concerning hiring criminals and this is a plus.
but it’s not the right thing to do; as an individual we have to give that person a second chance to redeem them self. Killing a person just like that for crime is a huge decision whether it’s a small crime or a big crime I still think you should have another chance
Criminal Record can affect ones future in many ways, ways you wouldn’t even think of. I have done some research. If you are a convicted felon, it is sad to say that you will have great difficulty finding a job that will hire you. I mean, if you were the boss of a management, would you want a felon working for you? I wouldn’t.
If the only reason to pull someone over depends on his or her race, this causes a discriminatory impact. Police departments begun to review data on stops and change police officers behaviors, arguments and attitudes towards the leading of stereotype based discriminatory treatment. (Racial profiling, 2012) This researcher frowns much upon racial profiling but with surveys conducted every day on who is likely to commit a crime, and what age, and what sex, and what minority group then people tend to lean towards these surveys proving that race is a huge part of crime involvement. In conclusion, criminal profiling works as an investigative tool to help solve crimes. Criminal profiling has come a long way and still needs a lot of improvement.
Until the payback had been fulfilled the person remains unpunished and not part of the rest of the law abiding society. Modern day criminals who commit crimes of a serious nature are removed from mainstream society, losing the privilege of freedom to come and go, there is a sense of shame which is also felt by the wider family members and often on release from prison a convicted criminal will find difficulty in obtaining work- a stigma attached to him for life. Trust would be lost much like honour was lost in Celtic Britain. The Celts were a people who lived in
Rational choice theory says that criminals are rational people. They make calculated choices about whom they are going to target, how they are going to commit the act. Sometimes they even weigh the consequences for doing so. I think that this is a very valid theory. If you look at serial killers who go on for decades without being caught, they have to have some sort of intelligence to pull that off.

Fear can prevent people from going about their daily lives and living and fear can make or break people. Fear is not always a bad thing though.

Word count : 1700 Criminal victimization and rational theories The classical approach to explain crime has always revolved around examining the personal motivations of offenders for committing crime. However, in the recent past decades researchers have focused not only on offender incentive, but also on the lifestyles and activities of those at risk of being victimized. The following article explores different risk determinants, rational choice and social control theories in an attempt to establish both victim and offender's crime circumstances. Cohen, Kluegel and Land present the opportunity model of predatory victimization perspective as a basic explanatory model for criminal victimization. In order to comprehend why race, age and income have the potential to affect criminal victimization, the authors portray five main risk factors which are: exposure, guardianship, proximity to potential offenders, attractiveness of targets and definitional properties of specific crimes.
The responsibility would fall on family and extended members of the family to enforce acceptable behaviour of its members. A crime within the community would affect all and fines were issued according to status and the ability to pay. A guarantor would be required to guarantee the payment. If the fine was not paid then the guarantor had the right to seize goods to the value of the fine. Member of the lowest caste would not have been able to pay a fine or secure a guarantor so they would lose their civil rights, be prohibited from practising a profession or being employed in any position of trust.
