The verdict handed down reflects this in that it has no minimum sentence, this is in line with the principle that intentional crimes are to be punished more severely than unintentional crimes. The majority further dismissed the proposition that there must be symmetry between all external elements of the offence and the fault elements. This would require that there be a fault element for the consequences of the acts, namely, that the accused’s could foresee death.

When it comes to dealing with targeted killings the argument of whether target killings should be solved through the domestic law or International law or domestic law. There are different preferences on approaching the targeted killings, but in my view, the best approach to approach targeted killing is the domestic law because applying international laws may question the constitutionality of a state, it can question the principle of legality and since it is very hard to distinguish between the civilians and combatants it can cost many lives. One of the most important reasons that targeted killings should not be addressed through international law is that this can question a state’s constitutionality. Any independent state has its own constitution that states rules for different aspects in the territory; if the constitution exists and there are certain rules and conditions for different military operations, applying international laws in the country that may contradict the rules and conditions of the constitution, it is not only a disrespect to the constitution of the state, but, it is also questioning the constitutionality of the state. Implementing any international law within an independent state without its consent is also violating the state’s sov... ... middle of paper ... ...curity.
However, variety of crimes requires narrowly focused branch of criminology in order to better explain the cause of crime. Criminologist cannot prioritize which criminal behaviour is more or less important because legislation only defines independently what is crime and what is not. Thus, legislation and its criminal bodies should be innovated and not specific criminal behaviour that are defined in legislation. O 'Brien (2005, p. 600-605) argues that there is no clear definition from cultural criminologists what creates culture, what are criteria and how to study culture, but overall cultural criminological theme is concentrated on culture that cause anti-social behaviour. Despite having some little defects in cultural criminology as in other subdivisions of criminology, its contribution to criminological field is significant to understand the cause of criminal behaviour because it offers the remarkable view from the different perspective.

She says it is important to look at the specific individual when determining a sentence. In conclusion, because of the norm of crime and punishment in North America, when a judge steps out of bounds and takes into account personal experiences, life situations and looks at the criminals rather than solely the crime, the case is usually appealed. The criminal law is oppressive, one sided, and disregards other avenues of punishment or rehabilitation. Critical legal abolitionism’s three main arguments support the trial judge’s decision in handing out a conditional sentence.

Forced prison labor can be called ‘tough on crime.’ And some may even claim it acts as a deterrent. Once an issue becomes politicized, it enters a stall while pundits from both sides yell talking points past each other. The reason that forced labor exists in the United States might very well be because the American government is not equipped with the tools to prune the problem. Whether the cause be economic, historical or political, it is an undisputed fact that forced prison labor is immoral and a violation of human rights. So far people have not been linking prison labor to international trafficking law.
