Brown Vs. Board Of Education
... schools solely on the basis of race, even though the physical facilities and other "tangible" factors may be equal, deprive the children of the minority group of equal educational opportunities? We believe that it does...We conclude that in the field of public education the doctrine of 'separate but equal' has no place. Separate educational facilities are inherently unequal. Therefore, we hold that the plaintiffs and others similarly situated for whom the actions have been brought are, by reason of the segregation complained of, deprived of the equal protection of the laws guaranteed by the Fourteenth Amendment.”
Random Drug Testing
... reconsider your stand on this issue.
Random drug tests violate an American citizen’s right to be secure against unreasonable searches or seizures. The fourth amendment of the United States Constitution states that “Unreasonable searches are forbidden. The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no warrants shall issue but upon probable cause. . .” The idea of random drug testing is randomly choosing people at random times to check for traces of illegal substances in their system.

Why The Legal Driving Age Should Be Raised
... didn't think anything of it until my husband ran to the door screaming my name. We went to the accident scene. John was still in the car. They had covered him with a sheet . . . From then on, the night was just a blur. I remember sitting in my rocking chair, freezing to death. I was so cold . . . yet I must have had the heat up to 90 and wrapped in blankets.I couldn't focus on anything. It seemed my life had been ripped away from me.
That was only one of the millions of tragic stories that parents sometimes have to face. A 16-year-old just receiving his or her license and thinking that they can do anything. ...
How Decriminalisation Could Solve The Drugs Problem
... chemical creations that has instilled such terror in governments around the world that in many countries a person can have their life coldly and legally taken away, simply for distributing them?
Is it because of their power to warp the human mind and run amok with the senses upon which we so desperately rely? No. Our world is inescapably full of narcotics, yet many of them, including powerful and dangerous ones such as alcohol and tobacco, are happily tolerated by society. The nutmeg in your kitchen cupboard can have narcotic effects if smoked (and, used in this way, it can also give you cancer), yet few peopl ...
A Working Alternative To Capital Punishment
... for ordinary crime, including the United States. In the other 57 countries in the world, the death penalty no longer exists. In some of the 57 countries, capital punishment is only banned for ordinary crimes and still effective for military crimes or crimes committed in exceptional circumstances such as wartime (Doan, 2).
Currently 34 of the states in the U.S. exercise capital punishment. The most recent to abolish capital punishment was Massachusetts, in 1984, and New York, in 1995, was the most recent to reinstate it, according to the NAACP. During 1977 and 1994, Texas executed the highest number of prisoner ...
The Two Different Cases Regarding Capital Punishment
... of the perpetrator to life.
A community founded on moral principals has specific requirements. The right to
belong to a community is not unconditional. The privilege of living and
pursuing the good life in society is not certain. The essential reason on which
community is built requires each citizen to honor the rightful claims of others.
The precious live in a moral community must be so highly honored that those who
do not honor the life of others void their own right to membership. Those who
violate the personhood of others, especially if this is done persistently as a
habit must pay the ultimate price. This m ...

The Social Plague Of Crime And Criminals
... and a society who bears the burden of
To explore the roots of this problem we can analyze the conditions
under which they are incarcerated. States vary in the procedures on
treatment of inmates. The topic to be debated on the basis of its
effectiveness is the rights of prisoners concerning conjugal visits. On an
issue so sensitive and controversial there are many different arguments and
opinions feel the most basic way to divide the way society feels about
conjugal visits is in three subsets which stem from legal theories. The
first is the justice view. The second is the rehabilitative view. The final ...
... was a prescribed punishment for crimes such as: murder, rape, arson, and perjury. In America today, the main crime deserving death is obviously murder. ( p.11-15).
Does the death penalty truly deter crimes and murder? This question is at the heart of a heated political controversy over the punishment. Opposers to the death penalty say no because of the large amount of people on death row today. They also say that states that have the death penalty have a higher crime rate than those that do not, and therefore it is not effective and somewhat contributes to the problem. I must point out though that states that ...

pick a sociopath out in a crowd because they look just like everybody else.
Actually, they act just like everybody else. You could have a neighbor that's a
serial killer and not even know it. Psychopaths are everyday people with
everyday lives, but they just have one problem, they have a need to kill.
What does a serial killer do? Serial killers usually have reasons for
killing, they just don't go out and kill anyone (the majority). A serial killer
will plan out where, when, why, and how bef ...
