The three components that make up the restorative process are mutual, voluntary consent to participate, meeting in a mediated setting and follow-up. First component of the restorative justice process is mutual. Both the criminal and the victim must be agreeable to meet without pressure or coercion from anybody. In fact, the simply principle for whether a felonious difficulty must be well-thought-out for restorative justice processes is whether the victim and criminal have developed to the procedure. Only if both parties decide to arbitrate will the process happen. The second component of restorative justice process is the meetings in

Children who play sports in school simply do not have as much time to commit crimes as those who do not. They have practice every day after school and games on the weekend, so consuming the child’s time with positive activities reduces the amount of time they have to get in to trouble. Programs such as the YMCA and the Boys and Girls club can be a positive activity as well. Aside from the parents involvement other recommendations include measuring the results or progress of a juvenile offender. The juvenile justice agencies out there

Essay on Diana Appleyard, “Poetic justice” 2004
Do you know the feeling of being stock in the past? You just can’t let go of the strong emotions and the dream you were in at the time. All these feelings are made by one person, who you thought was the one. It is like you lived alone whit the one and wake up alone. In the loneliness the only thing that existed were you and he/she, and nothing else. Until the day, where the bubble broke. And the one left you behind. Maybe he/she wanted something else, maybe her/she had other dreams and thoughts for the future. Then you’re are forgotten thorn apart, you feel lonely, your crying, and you are now outcast from the society.

Criminal Justice System
Criminal Justice System
Criminal justice changes in rules, procedures, and terms from state to state. However, the punishment exercised on criminals cannot vary from the standards established by the United States. A crime is classified as an act that violates the federal laws of America. Consequently, all the violations are subject to different severities of punishment. Crimes in particular can be as minimal as a traffic violation and become as severe as homicide. The severity of the crime will determine the severity of the punishment. The criminal justice system is designed in order to standardize a level of punishment to appropriately

Justice and Economic Distribution
Justice can be defined as living and acting within the law. This means that every individual should act in a right manner and that do not abuse other people’s rights. When one fails to follow regulations within a country or a community, then the rule of law can take its course. However, for justice to prevail, even the law breakers should be judged fairly without discrimination, prejudice or judging out of hunger. On the other hand, justice should not only be seen in terms of punishing the law breakers, but it also means treating people in an equal and fair way. For instance, in a family set up parents should treat their

There are essentially five elements of planned change that a criminal justice administrator should be familiar with to effect change in a rational and effective manner. The process of planned change for the criminal justice administrator is essentially the same as any other organization; the five elements are fairly basic. These elements consist of problem analysis, setting goals and objectives, program and policy design, developing an action plan and monitoring and evaluation. (Peak 14) Being familiar with these elements provides a built in checklist for any administrator when faced with hurdles or problems within their area of control.

It takes only a little reflection to realize that the term ‘just’ and ‘justice’ is vital to the operation of society and social networks. We are perhaps fortunate that we have lost one of the senses which the term had for the Greeks, the sense in which, justice was equivalent to virtue in general; nevertheless we can use the concept in many different contexts to make a variety of moral and political points, Zajda & Rust, (2006). First and foremost before one can truly define social justice we have to start with what is justice itself. Justice is defined as a concept of moral rightness based on ethics, rationality, law, natural, religion, fairness, or equity, along with the punishment of

The Death Penalty
According to David Bruck, “neither justice nor self-preservation demands that we kill men” and I beg to differ. Death penalty is considered as a controversial topic today. Death penalty is the best way to bring justice because it is cheap, it serves as justice for the victims, and it gives a higher regard to the victim’s suffering in the hands of the murderer. Although some people oppose death penalty saying it is immoral and a waste of life, it is still the best way to bring justice to the victims of heinous crimes.

What is Justice?
How do we know what justice is? This has been the question that we have essentially been discussing throughout all of our classes this semester. The idea that the normalities of society are the pillars for what defines what is right and what is just, is one argument that in most cases holds true. As children in our culture, we are all taught a very generic set of rules. At a very young age we learn not to harm others, steal, lie, or cheat. As children we cultivate this idea of criminals as bad people, who have somehow broken the moral code that society has so easily instilled in us as youth. However, despite

Justice involves making individuals and communities a whole by upholding both goodness and impartiality. Justice is also about equality and ensuring that those who are less fortunate have access to the basic needs of humanity. The Eucharist teaches Christians the basic values of forgiveness, love and sacrifice. Christians in the 21st century are working towards achieving these values through two organisations that demonstrate the relationship between justice and living the Eucharistic life. These two organisations are Caritas and St. Vincent De Paul.

There is no doubt that The Republic by Plato has helped developed the foundation of ethics. Since the main theme of The Republic is focused on the nature of Justice, it is ideal to say that ethics, which is based on the principles of regulating the distribution of social benefits and its burdens deals directly with the issue of what is fairness or not in our society(Norman, 83).
Plato makes a lot of interesting arguments in The Republic regarding the issues of ethics. Plato was more focused on debunking theories that have been promoted by Cephalus, Thrasymachus, and Glaucon. Because Plato believed that their theories are focused on a single component, and that is they

The history of community corrections shows that many changes have occurred in the criminal justice system regarding punishment of offenders. Shortly after the creation of the penitentiary community, many people came to the view that incarceration was not an appropriate response to address all offenders. As a response to this concern, community corrections such as probation and parole were developed and implemented by the criminal justice system (Travis 1998, p.308).

So how is it that, The U.S. Department of Justice has projected that 28.5 percent of Black men will be incarcerated in their lifetimes, compared to 4.4 percent of White men (Bureau of Justice Statistics, 1997)? Are black men more likely to commit crimes or are they being profiled? The purpose of this paper is to provide a realistic perspective on the treatment of minorities, specifically blacks by law enforcement.
