Criminal Liability and the Use of Force
In today’s world it is of utmost importance that law enforcement understands how to determine culpability with regards to criminal activity as definitions surrounding what constitutes a particular crime can be confusing. Just as important is the ability to know when to use force, what constitutes use of force, and how that force can and cannot be applied. In determining culpability one must remember that criminal responsibility also has the potential to be used to excuse a person from acts committed that could result in arrest, incarceration, or other legal sanctions (Gardner & Anderson, 2012, p. 109). Criminal acts such as solicitation, attempt, and...

The deficiencies under the common law offence of gross negligence manslaughter to secure corporate convictions caused the law relating to corporate manslaughter to be riddled with controversy. Despite the fact that academics and policy makers have increasingly clamoured for a major overhaul of this area of law, it has taken two Law Commission papers and a 'decade of...

Values and ethics are an essential part to human life. They differentiate between right and wrong. To know the difference can keep people where they should be; allowing them to be good example to others. People like to see someone walk out an ethical lifestyle, not just hear about it. What is valued defines character because it shows what is most important. It is the standard people hold themselves accountable to which actions are based on the values they live by. When people have good values, it can carry into other areas of life; both professional and personal.By having good values and ethics in life, it is easier to let that filter into a career.

Making consistently ethical decisions is difficult. Most decisions have to be made in the context of economic, professional and social pressures, which can sometimes challenge our ethical goals and conceal or confuse the moral issues.In addition, making ethical choices is complex because in many situations there are a multitude of competing interests and values. Other times, crucial facts are unknown or ambiguous. Since many actions are likely to benefit some people at the expense of others, the decision maker must prioritize competing moral claims and must be proficient at predicting the likely consequences of various choices. An ethical person often chooses to do more than the law requires...

INTRODUCTION.The evolution of corporate criminal liability perhaps reaches its apex in the prosecution of manslaughter. The criminal law, although designed to determine the responsibility of natural persons is remodelled when the employer is not a person. Presumably this predicates the dilemma, which legislators confront in determining the limits of the criminal sanction and whether or not a corporation can be ascribed guilt in manslaughter.Current State of the Law.The current law in Australia is such that, although corporations are deemed legal persons, they cannot be convicted of an offence which is only punishable by imprisonment e.g. murder. In Australia, the acknowledgement of corporate...

Crime is something that Canadians don’t often think about because people feel as though they are out of harm's way. As Canadians, we’ve watched the world experience different threats and crime, and we’ve seen the world fight back. For example, our neighbors in North America, the United States, have gone through terrorist attacks and issues with guns and violence. Just because we are witnessing these things in other places doesn’t mean that we aren’t at risk as well, and Canada does have certain approaches...

Criminal Liability “In a just society criminal liability should never be imposed without
some degree of blameworthiness”
Offences of strict liability are those, which do not require any mens
rea with regards to at least one or more of the actus rea. The mens
rea usually requires intention and or recklessness.
However some crimes are possible to commit without any knowledge,
intention or responsibility on behalf of the defendant. Therefore the
primary issue is should these defendants be guilty and held liable for
these crimes under strict liability.

The high level of activity in the criminal justice system and the resultant productivity arise from a range of interconnected beliefs that the implementation of criminal sanctions to offenders is an essential and useful means of holding up the existing moral and political order. That is to say, the criminal sanction can be deemed to be a reinforcer of the moral beliefs and social order. This paper, however, will look at both sides of the application of criminal sanction. ‘Used providently and humanely it is a guarantor of human freedom; used indiscriminately and coercively, it is a threatener.’ (Packer, 1968:366)
