Most of the time they do not know what is going on around their precinct because it happens behind their back. So if the issue is brought to light, we are not only helping ourselves but we are also helping future victims of the abuse. When police officers feel like they have all of the power they need to do whatever they want, they don’t focus on the consequences of their actions. Everyone knows that sexual assault is illegal yet people on the law force do it anyways. Police officers need the correct discipline when it comes to controlling how much power they are giving.
Activist groups have gathered and published information pertaining to the inability of capital punishment to deter crime and of the United States justice system’s tendency to be prejudice in executions.

Anti-capital punishment topics such as... ... middle of paper ... ...e. It is with these imperfections that our legal system is constantly being improved upon in order to avoid convicting innocent people. While the validity of anti-capital punishment arguments is evident, the validity of pro-capital punishment arguments is also evident. Criminals who have murdered other human beings have, in their actions, forfeited their rights as Americans as well as their right to live their lives.
Eliezer’s struggle with faith is, for the most part, a struggle of questions. He continually asks where God has gone and questions how such evil could exist in the world, after having witnessed millions being slaughtered in the concentration camps.

From the three, memory has the greatest impact on representing a theme through evil in the novel, Night, as the author’s intent was to preserve the record of the ordeal, for it should never be repeated. This powerful novel demonstrates how evil is an irremovable as well as unpredictable concept, which will always lurk in the hearts of man, and in nature.

The death penalty was created in time of chaos and disorder, now that society has come so far we still continue to use this cruel punishment. Crime is an issue that will never go away, so the rather than trying to scare potential criminals the government should do more to prevent these crimes by providing more resources to the areas where crimes such as these are common. America claims it does not torture any criminals, although imagine what goes through the mind of a death row inmate, they must endure the agony of waiting for their own death. The remaining thirty three states that still employ the death penalty must follow in the example of the other seventeen states and abolish the death penalty for good.
Nevertheless, capital punishment has been a part of human history and will always continue to be a controversy and a debate. (Bedau) The purpose for my writing is to figure out what causes and effects come from the use of capital punishment. Advocators believe that the death penalty deters murder and it’s a good tool for prosecutors. Also, it makes sure that the convicted felons don’t murder again thus being a just penalty for child murders, serial killers or torture murders. On the other hand, opponents argue that we don’t have the power to take another human being’s life; so it encourages a culture of violence that violates our human rights.
Ernest van den Hagg, in his article “On Deterrence and the Death Penalty” mentions, “One abstains from dangerous acts because of vague, inchoate, habitual and, above all preconscious fears” (193). Without this type of deterrence what would stop criminals that already in prisons for life keep from killing another inmate or a staff that works there? There are those that are against the death penalty called anti-death penalty advocates, they say that imprisonment by it self is enough to deter criminals, killing criminals is not needed! Hugo Bedau argues in his article, “Capital Punishment and Social defense” says, “Crimes can be deterred only by making would-be criminals frightened of being arrested, convicted, and punished for crimes” (301). According to Richard Seiter in his book “An Introduction Corrections” states that “From 1986 to 1997 the number of males that went to prison increased 70% while the number of females increased 118%” (210).
He uses logical reasoning to make the readers see his point of view by using facts. He states that every crime offense committed in the modern world makes the offender go behind bars even if the crime is not brutal (197). He thinks that they offenders should be beaten and flogged rather than being locked like animals in a cage. He uses statistics to also prove his point that and says that not even all of these criminals are brought to justice by the government (197). His solution for the problem, hence, is flogging.
