A true reflection of the role of civil and criminal sanctions

Extracts from this document...

Introduction

TMA 06 QUESTION 1 A True Reflection of the Role of Civil and Criminal Sanctions The most violent and heinous crimes committed anywhere in the world are by the youth. These are organized and in a proper manner, with no shortcomings at any end on anyone's part. Research has found out that the youth are the ones who are most definitely involved in this menace. At times, the politicians are the ones, who use them in order to hold protests against any civil or governmental norm prevalent in a certain region of the world, which enrage these youth. Studies have shown that the extreme cases of criminal behaviours all involved having youth at their expense. They not only bring with them terror for the common citizens but also introduce a huge dust of alcohol, abuse of drugs and many other forbidden things in the society. The future generation should be made to stay away from this peril as much as possible. Conformity and compliance with the law is the duty of every citizen and he must get this thing right in his system right from the starting of his youth. Poverty and the lack of education in the lives of young ones, makes them the most vulnerable among all the human populations of any country or for that matter, the world. Committing a crime is not a remedy to get one's hopes and needs fulfilled but there is a certain way to do everything and quite rightly so every society has some pre-set ways to go about the same in the most simplest and accommodating (for its citizens) ...read more.

Middle

These sanctions seem to stem out from the way in which people have been brought up with the passage of time. A commoner in today's society is enticed every now and then toward newer and more fancy products and indeed a similar way of life. For this, he wishes to have more money and if he works , he expects his employers to pay him more than his actual wage. This does not happen in the real world and eventually the youth with their hot blood fuming inside, take up committing crimes and start earning instant and lavish money. They believe this is their right and do not want to be left out on any account when compared with any other superior individual of the society. The wages for the low- skilled workers had its sudden decline in the early 70s, which spanned over a period of 20 years, ending up round about in the early 1990s. This decline resulted in a drift, which changed the demographic impact that was the basis of crime all these years as well as of the crack cocaine effects of the 1980s, to name just a few. Crime is on the rise in the world and studies and surveys suggest that the same will continue to do so in the years to come. These rates have always been on the hill when a society is a multicultural, industrialized and democratic one. ...read more.

Conclusion

In conclusion it is a must that the world of today must respect the youth and tries to encourage them so that they don't act in a manner which is not close to that of an uncivilised society. As good citizens, it is the duty of the fellow countrymen to try their level best to eradicate the menace of mafias, gangs and others. Youth should be encouraged more towards sports and healthy extra curricular activities rather than using them for leaders' political movements. The world can only be a better place if the people are happy and people are only contented and satisfied when they see their children and toddlers bloom like flowers in every department of life. If the youth as well as the adult offenders do not give up their acts for the betterment of the society that they hail from and the world in which they reside, then surely they need to be put behind bars and given rigorous punishments since it is significant to nip the bud right at the very beginning. This indeed provides for a sound rationalization of the civil and criminal sanctions that are imposed by the society and the same need to be understood in a proper and adequate manner by one and all. The end result must be one that goes towards the improvement and enhancement of the society and the evil has to die all said and done. Ensuring compliance and conformity with the law is surely something that reaps rich dividends in the coming times. ...read more.
