Aspects of City Life - Crime.
Different angles can be taken with regards to crime in the city, and
further to this, the main topic can be broken down into smaller areas. I have
conducted two types of research;
Primary - Interviews etc. Secondary - Named Sources.
The question of crime and how it affects a city is perhaps best put to
those people that have either lived in a city all their lives (thus knowing what
the crime is like in the area), or to those that have moved to a city from a

It was May 25th 1978, Terry Marker was on his usual patrol on campus at

- Capital Punishment: For And Against
Capital Punishment: For and Against
Thesis One: In principle a case can be made on moral grounds both supporting and
opposing capital punishment. Thesis two: Concretely and in practice, compelling
arguments against capital punishment can be made on the basis of its actual
administration in our society.
Two different cases can be made. One is based on justice and the nature of a
moral community. This leads to a defense of capital punishment. The second is
based on love and the nature of an idea...

Capital Punishment: Is It Required
Looking out for the state of the public's satisfaction in the scheme of
capital sentencing does not constitute serving justice. Today's system of
capital punishment is fraught with inequalities and injustices. The commonly
offered arguments for the death penalty are filled with holes. "It was a
deterrent. It removed killers. It was the ultimate punishment. It is biblical.
It satisfied the public's need for retribution. It relieved the anguish ...

Opinion on the Death Penalty
The death penalty, also referred to as capital punishment, has been
abolished in Canada since 1976, but still exist in a few American States. The
last execution in Canada took place in 1962.
I disagree with the death penalty for several reasons. My first reason is
that I find it extremely inhumane to take someone's life in order to demonstrate
the power of the law. Another reason for my disapproval of the death penalty, is
the amount of money that it takes ...

The Debate over the merits of capital punishment has endured for years, and
continues to be an extremely indecisive and complicated issue. Adversaries of
capital punishment point to the Marshalls and the Millgards, while proponents

barbaric acts of these individuals and other killers, by taking away their lives
to function and perform in our society. At the same time, we must insure that
