Under any civilized society this is never an ethical alternative for punishment of criminals, it does nothing but harm society and can never, by any means, be justified. Capital punishment is said to deter all the crime and violence that exists in our society. Notice that the government uses violence to try to end violence, and that’s all the death penalty is, violence. An attorney from the University of Minnesota Law School states, “America’s death penalty continues to be just another form of violence in an already too-violent society” (Bessler). This makes no sense to continuously try to end violence with violence.
Robert Thompson and Jon Venables: Robert Thompson and Jon Venables were both 10 years old when they abducted and killed two-year-old James Bulger in 1993. The young boys snatched the toddler from a shopping mall while his mother was inside a store, and took him on a 2.5-mile walk across Liverpool. The boys were seen walking by approximately 38 people, but many assumed he was their younger brother. Venables and Thompson took Bulger to a railway line where they tortured and brutally attacked the toddler. Bulger suffered multiple skull fractures from blows to the head, and was sexually abused by the two older boys.

Acre Woods Retirement Community Case Study HSM/230 What are some potential legal and ethical issues present in this case study? There many legal issues present such as the fact that if someone falls down and injuries themselves and there is definitely nothing in terms of safety rails of nonslip treads, we have a lawsuit waiting to happen.

Sex offenders who are tried in a court of law; found guilty of their accused crime and serve out their time in jail should not then have this horrendous, life-changing experience topped with having their names and addresses being publicly listed under this harsh label for the rest of their lives. The minimal information stated on this register does not include the nature of the crime committed, only the ‘textbook’ conviction; allowing far-reaching conclusions to be drawn in the minds of the public. What chance are we giving any person of reform or allowing them to move on from what would not be a proud moment of their lives by making public this list? Why do these people, above anyone else, deserve to be estranged and how is the reprimand of jail time not punishment enough? Australia’s justice system is concerned with rehabilitating those who have done wrong and preventing them from re-offending.

When the Nanking genocide was taking place the United States was in a Great Depression. Thus, the United States had done nothing to stop the genocide. It is only under this circumstance that the U.S. should not take any action at all in a genocide.
When he came out of prison he had doubts about his innocence in the matter and was convinced that he was indeed a convict. “Under the whip, under the chain, in the cell...he recognized that he was not an innocent man, unjustly punished” (Hugo 23). Later in his life Jean Val Jean does overcome this and turns out to be a huge benefactor for his community, giving to the poor and providing many jobs. This however is done only with great resistance from society, as they do not accept convicts as normal people. Jean Val Jean had to conceal his identity in order to help people.
Ashlyn Smith Capital Punishment Spring 08 Capital punishment should not exist in America. Punishment by death serves no purpose or benefit to society and is an unethical practice. It simply restricts the ability to grow as a nation and as human beings. Implementing capital punishment in society is denying basic human rights, as well as, expressing the idea of a double standard: If killing is wrong, then why punish by killing? What message does this send?
