I’ve always wondered what was the appropriate justice would be for people who kill others . It would be easy to kill them, but then would that just be the easiest thing to do? What would be the suitable justice for my friends Mother, for his little sister, for his friends? They now are now missing someone from their life who is irreplaceable and the murders would never know to what extent the pain they caused . Justice could possibly be causing them a similar type of pain where you killed someone they love, but then you’d be taking another innocent life, so that justice would be served . The only reason I say it would be justice is because you would be inflicting upon them, the same pain they caused to many families my killing my friend . Society is in certain ways based around religious views . If you are raised with religion, there is no way for you to dissociate your religious beliefs from you everyday life or any religious beliefs from everyday life because majority of the people who laid the foundation for this country and its justice system belonged to a religious group . When dealing with certain matters, you will always refer back to what you know; and what most people know is religion . I’ll never know if my conception of justice or giving people what they deserve is reliable due to the fact that everyone

thinks differently and everyone will react differently to different ideas . My way of wanting justice could be very extreme in some people’s eyes . Other people, at the same time, could think that it is very fair . I also don’t think that not addressing moral dilemmas in our society is helpful either . The government keeps a sort of “hands off” policy when it comes to dealing with issues that morality come in to play . I don’t feel that we have a problem telling people how they should act after something has happened, maybe even telling them before it does . However, we do have a problem enforcing moral codes . No one wants to be told how they should behave towards other people, but when integrity should have come into play people usually wait till after a situation occurs to say whether or not something should have taken place to prevent it . In Sandel’s book, he tells us a story of when a cheerleader that had cerebral palsy was kicked of the squad because the father of the head cheerleader maid the claim that all cheerleaders regardless of disabilities should be required to do everything that goes into “being a cheerleader . ” Due to the fact that this cheerleader was in a wheelchair, she was kicked off the squad because she couldn’t fulfill the requirements of doing the splits and flips that cheerleaders do during their events . Honor comes into play in this argument because if she was allowed to be on the squad being in a wheelchair void of doing splits and flips, she would have taken away from the importance of cheerleaders putting in a sufficient amount of time perfecting these things .

    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.

    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.
