Poll….

My criminal justice brain has kicked on this morning, and I figured I would do a poll on my blog site. I am going to ask a series of questions, and I would prefer that you guys provide a choice in the comment section (if you so choose). Thanks for participating!

Questions:

  1. What should be the maximum penalty for murder? Does it matter if it is a crime of passion or self-defense?
  2. What should be the maximum penalty for rape? Does gender matter (i.e. man rapes woman or man rapes man or any combination)?
  3. What should be the maximum penalty for pedophilia?
  4. What should be the maximum penalty for committing a hate crime? Which definition of a hate crime should be used?
  5. What should be the purpose of prison (rehabilitation, housing violent offenders, etc.)?
  6. Should the death penalty be used as a preventive measure? If so, what cases should the death penalty be used in (terrorism, murder, etc.)? Should certain crimes be exempt from the death penalty?
  7. How do we ensure that the law is applied fairly to all races?
  8. Do you think that the criminal justice system in America is broken?
  9. How do we prevent mass shootings from occurring?
  10. Is the immigration system broken in America? Should we allow mass immigration? Should the wall be built? Should there be a stricter screening process at the border? Would it be a better solution to help these immigrants in their home country?
  11. Do you feel that the law is applied fairly or unfairly to all people?
  12. Do you think that there are too many or too few laws in place to control crime?
  13. How do we limit gangs and their influence in our inner cities?
  14. Is there correlation between the environment of the home and crime?
  15. What should be done when a protest turns violent?
