The media prefer sensational stories about egregious criminal behavior. Once the offender is sentenced, the story usually ends. Prisoners do not have access to the internet. Incarceration is hidden from the eyes of the people, harmful to the morals of prisoners and expensive. Cultural, generational and religious bias prevent us from crediting our ancestors or other countries with effective crime-control techniques.
Many studies have shown that families that are involved in crime tend to set their children on a law breaking path. (Henslin, 2103, p.158) Some people may not know what the term differential association means, but most are familiar with how it works. For instance parents do not want to live in a bad neighborhood filled with delinquents because if their child is around that influence, they are likely to turn out the same way. In some areas deviation is very woven into the subculture, such as inner cities. If a wrong glance is given to the wrong person, it could cost someone their life.
Although juries are intended to be fair and balanced, and are in theory supposed to prevent biased, incompetent people having that kind power. However often enough it's the opposite that happens. In criminal cases where the defendant's punishment could be serving time in prison or could even be death, there is a great deal of pressure on jurors to ultimately make the right decision. This kind of pressure combined with the fear of possible guilt can be overwhelming for jurors, making them incapable of doing their job properly. For example, imagine that you’re in a jury room, and all of the other jurors have voted on the defendant being guilty and you are the one to decide whether or not this person gets the death sentence or if they walk free.
When the manager failed to inform the residents as well, as the residents, one could be inclined to feel disenfranchised and taken advantage of. Whether the decision was made with good intentions to improve the community, the appearance could damage your hard work and effort. The residents could very easily feel that they were not considered in the decision making, therefore when the public also is uninformed how could anyone not feel like some degree of prejudice played a part in the city’s decision. The city manager Thompson also could have avoided the mischaracterizing of the project that others may project in their own minds. Partisan politics have a lot to do with some of the decisions the city makes .by not allowing transparency the city’s innocence on this issue could be washed away by divisive politics .the failure to be proactive has now place the city in a defensive mode with little justification to go on.
So why shouldn’t law abiding citizens be able to do the same and be able to protect themselves. The deterrent effect of a concealed weapon would benefit the person and the general public that is doing the same. Because the criminals out there wouldn’t know who is armed and who is not. That would in turn get some criminals to think twice about going after someone who is also potentially armed and knowing that their life would also be in danger. I feel some crimes that have taken place in this country could have been stopped or lessened to a degree with a concealed firearm.
I believe it’s unethical to not feed the prisoners just because they aren’t acting right or if they get into a fight with another prisoner or cellmate. Some prisoners are denied access to medical attention which is also unethical as this can result in deaths that would otherwise have been avoided. In especially the 3rd world countries the state of their prisons is deplorable. Prisoners are confined in these prisons that look like they are healthy but in all it isn’t and when the prisoners are finally released; they look very unhealthy and have more health problems than when they went in.

Also this only encourages other criminals to believe that they have a chance of getting away with crimes, therefore increasing the crime rate. People need to see other people punished to realize that something is wrong. The Double Jeopardy Rule is setting a bad example to the public. America is not the only country whose court system uses this Double Jeopardy Rule, England also previously had it until Julie Hogg went missing and months later her mother found her body behind the panels of the bathroom in her home. The prime suspect, Billy Dunlop,
The United States Judicial System and Racial Profiling ENG 122 Lisa M. Carlo May 27, 2013 The United States Judicial System and Racial Profiling There is reluctance in American society to talk about race and crime because race is a touchy subject. Everything in today's society has to be politically correct. One has to be very careful what they write or say because of the fear of what might happen if someone misunderstood what the real meaning to their statement was. For that reason, when a person talks about race and crime many individuals may interpret their opinions differently. Therefore, many people try to avoid talking about such controversial subjects.
It would give the law enforcement personnel a bad name or rap because he or she broke the policy. The victim would not feel justice had been served if the suspect walked. The precinct where the evidence was held may look incompetent because they cannot follow procedures, which could end up with an internal investigation. The only person that would be happy would be the person that the evidence was against. The first person to handle the weapon would initial or write an identifying number on the evidence.
In some cases the pedophile is charged with a misdemeanor or a felony, and is required to serve time in a penitentiary for however long a judge decides is suitable. In some cases society has been less than pleased with the outcome of a pedophile’s punishment believing that it is not severe enough. Is the justice system sending the message that pedophilia is okay by giving registered sexual offenders a slap on the wrist? Will the time the offenders do honestly help them to recover and be able to live in society among children without urges? Pedophiles need to have a more serious punishment without levels, due to the effects they leave on children all around the world.
