I believe that convicted felons should be allowed to vote upon release from prison because they exercise good judgment: in addition, withholding their rights to vote would be a violation of the United States Voting Rights act of 1965 and the eighth amendment of the Constitution. I think that some, but not all ex-convicts should be allowed to reinstate their voting rights. This should be judged on a case by case basis according to the crime they committed. Also, it should be based on the magnitude and severity of their crime. At the very least, they should attend and complete a special designed program, go through a waiting period, and take a drug-screened testing regularly before they get their privileges restored.
Thus they appear to be above the law .

Rehab will be a fairy way of correcting the youth as compared to jail since they be corrected and be taught how to be become responsible people in the society through training and teaching 4 ) Media play a major role in the way celebrity case is handled when caught breaking the law . This may be through updating the public on their progress of the case so that citizens of a country can see that law is served equally to all people and also this publicity is a caution to other celebrity . Hence fairness
Rehabilitation Paper University of Phoenix CJA 234- Introduction to Corrections Jeremy Bauer Instructor Sherri Webster June 20, 2011 Rehabilitation Paper The basic foundation in which the adjudication and corrections system was built upon was the ideology of punishing and reforming criminal offenders. The processes in which criminals go through in the judicial system are meant to teach lessons to anyone committing unlawful acts, and essentially rehabilitate them. Rehabilitation is one of main sentencing goals and philosophies presently utilized in the adjudication process. This paper will define prisoner rehabilitation, while explaining various related factors in parole, probation, and community corrections. The word rehabilitation can offer many different meanings.
The criminal justice system has a need for alternative to incarceration programs in order to help with the overcrowding and the task of reforming offenders at any level. Alternatives to Incarceration The criminal justice system has become an area of concern in many states. Because of the jail overcrowding and costs to the people, alternative programs are being used for offenders. Alternative to incarceration programs (ATI’s), are “designed to reduce reliance on pretrial detention and/or incarceration and operate in a manner consistent with public safety” (New York State, n.d., para. 2).
The punishment is to protect the community from the offender by keeping them off the street, and trying to reconcile if this person wants to change for the better, in essence to also promote the rehabilitation option to the offender which could help denounce the conduct of the offender, but ultimately for the offender to recognize the harm done to the victim of the crime and the community. The offender needs to understand the damage that has been done by their crime, and understand their actions affect everyone around them. The punishment applies to the offender per the crime committed. If the offender committed a federal crime then they go to a federal prison, if the offender is only sentenced to a year of time they will go to a jail, and for almost every other crime they would go to a state prison. The prison whether it be state or federal its main objectives in preventing and controlling criminal behavior and acts.
When the group with the most power changes, the acts that are considered to be criminal change. Society is affected by the concept of the “choice theory” because it needs to figure out what punishment fits the crime to keep other criminals from committing the same crimes. Society need to make this laws to have control over law and order within their societies. It allows them away to keep law abiding citizens saver in their own
Black Hat or White Hat There are multiple examples of people convicted of major crimes working with law enforcement to help convict other people doing similar crimes. In fact, the perpetrator of the ZZZZ Best case was released from his sentence because of all the good he was perceived to have done against subsequent frauds. Is using convicted criminals to fight future crimes a good idea? Explain with an example. Disc7 Accounting Black Hat or White Hat Student Name: Institution Name: Abstract A criminal investigation involves seeking, collecting, and gathering evidence for a criminal case.
In this paper I will tell you what justice means to me in general as well as what it means to me as a future juvenile probation officer. In general, justice to me means that a criminal must be punished for the crime that he/she has committed. To be just and fair, the punishment must fit the crime. For instance, you would not want to seek the death penalty for someone who only committed burglary and you would not want to give someone only one to two years in prison for murder. The punishment should also increase for repeat offenders.
The key difference between these two models is that the crime control model is much more harsh and unrelenting; it emphasizes controlling crime via punishing suspects while the due process model emphasizes careful examination to ensure less innocent people are unjustly convicted. The crime control model places an emphasis on "placing as few restrictions as possible on the ability of law enforcement officers to make discretionary decisions in apprehending criminals"(Gaines). Under this model, courts would be more willing to convict offenders, even with an absence of compelling evidence. For example, a court would be more willing to accept a police officer's account of a homicide without careful cross-examination under the crime control model in order to repress crime. In contrast, the due process model emphasizes "protecting the rights of the accused through formal, legal restraints on the police, courts, and corrections" (Gaines).
To discourage and deter people from committing crimes means that something must be done to prevent this action. This is done via corrections; when people see what happens to people who commit crimes, people will have a tendency to shy away from it (Gardner, T. & Anderson, T., 2012). Protecting the society from dangerous and harmful people is the job of law enforcement. They hit the streets, the waterways, and the air to ensure the citizens are protected from criminals (Gardner, T. & Anderson, T., 2012). Punishing people who commit crime is the job of the prosecution lawyer; they attempt to put the violators behind bars (Gardner, T. & Anderson, T., 2012).
