Week 7 Forum Select and analyze an example of a criminal justice policy that comes in conflict with constitutional protections. What is the conflict? How should it be resolved? The main purpose of the criminal justice policy is to prevent criminals from committing illegal acts and the government is in a position to monitor unlawful activity and punish those involved in the activities. For this week’s forum, I choose to discuss the Capital punishment which is Death Penalty. The death penalty is not an effective deterrent, especially for violent criminals that commit these crimes for passion. There are concerns about wrongful conviction, the expensive nature of multiple layers of legal appeals and constitutional questions about the Eighth Amendment which protects against torture and human rights abuses. However, over 65% of Americans continue to support its use with 34 states currently performing executions (POLS410, Week 7 Lesson). Some Americans point out it’s incapacitation impact which means, criminals are place where they cannot harm anybody, and it is the ultimate sanction.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
