I feel some crimes that have taken place in this country could have been stopped or lessened to a degree with a concealed firearm. The government can not ensure the 100 percent safety and wellbeing of all its citizens. For example the school shootings and workplace instances etc that happened in this country. But if there were more responsible law abiding people that had a concealed weapon on them some of these tragedies could have been avoided or at least minimized the damage that those criminals caused saving the lives of others is always a good thing. Criminals are not known for following the rules so all law abiding citizens have the right to defend themselves by any means needed.
He does not present enough proof to believe that less enforcement will in fact lower violence in gangs. Gangs are a complex and fairly intelligent corporation that will try and stop at nothing to get what they want with any means possible. Drugs do have a major role in gang violence, like Gardner says, but stopping the drug trade in my eyes won’t in fact end their
I believe secondly people believe police and political corruption feed off each other, which is a known opinion by most (http://www.coha.org,2004). This means a lot of people already believe that the negative actions of an officer will over ride the positive in the entire police force. People don’t look for the positive to feed off each other but the negative. This positive can
Although the thought of another individual having the ability to steal our fingerprints is scary, the majority of criminals would not be able to do this. The most common criminals do not plan their crimes out that effectively, so this new DNA and fingerprint system would still dramatically lower the amount of crimes. If this new database was used, it would also deter many criminals from breaking the law because there would be a higher risk of being convicted for the crime. One is more likely to commit a crime if there is a high possibility that he would not get
The reason is the perceived view that it is the lack of gun control that has resulted in the number of firearms-related deaths in the country. In fact, this is one of the most stated, but wrong, arguments for gun control. The fact of the matter is that if gun control is put into place there are more chances that law-abiding citizens will be victims. Gun control laws to a large extent can have no effect on criminals, as there will always be a thriving black market for trade of guns and firearms. (Nair,
This seems like a no brainer, however some judges and members of senate disagree that these illicit crimes are punishable by lengthy sentences and strict court conditions. Many ‘soft’ judges are barely punishing these criminals by simply sentencing them to probation or using the minimum sentence. Therefore, laws like Jessica’s
Student Professor English 305 6 November 2009 I Say No To Hate Crime Laws Hate crimes are an irrational, ignorant and cowardly expression of desperation. A person who commits a hate crime is desperate to feel better, superior and in control. That being said, there should not be special laws and mandatory sentences for people who commit these heinous acts of violence because they do not accomplish the goals of eradicating or deterring bigotry. If we, as a society, put special laws and punishments into our legal system, we are unequivocally saying that the motive of these acts is more important than the intent or outcome of these crimes. I do not believe this is true nor do I feel that this is the position of the majority of people in
Criminal Law Evaluation CJA/354 August 1, 2011 Criminal Law Evaluation Laws make everyone’s life safer and more pleasant. Without laws we could not hold on to our property. We could not go to bed at night expecting to wake up and find that we had not been robbed. Social life would be impossible without laws to control the way people treat one another. It is not the law that people should fear, it is the trouble that comes to everyone when the laws are broken.
The high likelihood of detection by the police, and the deterrent effects of punishment have been seen as forms of crime prevention. But the traditional criminal justice agencies have prevention as a sort of side effect or unintended consequence of their main aim of detection and punishment. And they are, as we have seen in previous lectures, not that efficient. Specific measures aimed at preventing crime have always been around in an everyday sense. Families, schools and communities disapprove of crime and this acts as a form of 'informal social control' People lock their doors and windows against burglars, and perhaps avoid badly lit areas, or certain parts of town, with the intention of reducing the likelihood of victimisation.
The discussion could be is that criminals are being handled well, but some say that they are not being handled like criminals. However, when you think back many years ago, criminals had no rights what so ever. The wardens ran the prison as they saw fit. As for the criminals back in the day, they would be taken out and stoned, beat, and even killed. But with the ethical treatment of criminals these days has a gentle and healthier living circumstances.
