Obviously, International criminal law covers different mechanisms for the suppression of transnational crimes, but this system shows also weaknesses in some cases where human rights factor appears more sensitive. States have the obligation to fight transnational crimes within the framework of cooperation at the same time it is unacceptable matter that human rights infringements while extraditing the suspects. According to these crucial points, human rights factor takes a great deal of importance now more than ever.

Criminology 1. According to the textbook, the legal, and most common, definition of crime is that it is a legalistic one in that it violates the criminal law and is punishable with jail terms, fines, and other sanctions. The Human Rights definition of crime defines crime as an action that violates the basic rights of humans to obtain the necessities of life and to be treated with respect and dignity. Unlike the legal definition of crime, the Human Rights definition of crime has a broader concept than its counterpart. With the Human Rights definition of crime, criminologists are allowed to the entire range of acts and omissions that cause social injury and social harm, while the legal definition of crime would only allow a criminologists to study acts and omission that cause individual injury and individual harm.
However with this said, the legal code that instructed as to how much punishment was to be given out, was in desperate need of an upheaval. This led to great subjectivity, and thus it was down to the individual to decide upon the correct level of discipline. It also seems clear that when compared with the disciplinary methods of land forces that the notoriety of the Navy’s punishment has been greatly embellished. Whilst flogging was indeed a harsh measure, it would have been seen in the long-term better than going to jail or being sanctioned under courts-martial.

(Bercovitch and Jackson, 154) At one end of the spectrum is a strong need to punish those who have caused pain and suffering through punitive measures and at the other are reconciliatory measures to expose the full truth and facilitate conflict transition. Leaning too much in one direction or the other will have significant impacts to the success and the long-term stability of the state. Additionally, this is also not a system of binomial choices.

As mentioned in “Criminology” by Larry J.

As highlighted above each of these three perspectives have very valid points, yet, I think I dis-agree the most with is conflict, this is because even though many of us do not wish to address it or admit it, we all separate ourselves regardless it be in classes, race, ethnicities, our job titles, etc. when it comes to the legal system, that system should be blind, I do not think it usually is; I think when a person stands in front of a judge or jury for a crime nothing should matter but the facts.

Despite the Miranda rights being so important, there are still times in which someone’s Miranda rights can be violated such as during the Lujan v. Garcia case. A violation of the Miranda rights can change the outcome of a court case. The rights given during the Miranda v. Arizona (384 U.S. 436 ) as a result of the case are what has had a great influence on the criminal justice system
Evaluating and Refining Solutions: Hate crimes can be described as criminal activities that are perceived to be fueled by prejudice against and hostility towards the victim based on an individual characteristic. In most cases, hate crimes are motivated by gender, disability, sexual orientation, race, identity, and religion or faith. The increase in hate crimes in the recent past has not only made it a major issue that needs to be addressed in the modern society but has also attracted several legislative measures to deal with it. However, dealing with this major societal issue not only requires these legislative measures but also necessitate creative and critical thinking to enhance the effectiveness of initiatives taken to address it. The development of suitable initiatives through creative and critical thinking requires evaluating and refining resolutions.
The Fourth Amendment exclusionary rule has undergone a harsh and controversial development. This article not only critically analyzes the numerous alternatives and slight modifications to the exclusionary rule but the advanced by courts and commentators as well, (Schroeder, 1361). The article also puts emphasis on the alternative route of police policy making and a means to control official misconduct and violations of citizens rights. The exclusionary rule is one of the most significant defense stance of the fourth amendment. ITs establishment has created a wide spread of protection against violations of citizens rights.
Both papers share a similar overview from remarkably different viewpoints. Many of the somewhat extremist views that Dempsey takes are tempered through Duffy’s call for consideration and revision. As the ICC moves forward with the trial of Slobodan Milosevic and others to come, it is important to cooperate harmoniously with the rest of the world’s nations, seeking justice and guidance. At the same time, we must not lose sight of those rights and responsibilities that make us one of the greatest nations on earth.
