Use  proper etiquette in discussion. Quality as well as quantity counts.  Present your own opinion on the assigned topic in a 300–500-word thread.   Provide at least 1 “scholarly” reference and 1 Scripture in support of your thread. 

 The  scholarly references and scriptures you incorporate in your initial  posts must come from “outside” the class .  That is they can NOT come from the class, i.e. the textbook or  scriptures listed in the assignments/PowerPoints. You must go out and  search for them by yourself.  

Review the presentations in the Reading & Study folder.

 “Competing perspectives” in the criminal justice system are discussed,  including certain “Biblical Perspectives,” one of which is restorative  justice. Restorative justice focuses on restoring the victim by making  the offender compensate the victim for the wrong and adding some  punishment. Numbers 5:6–7 highlights this principle very well. “Say to  the Israelites: ‘When a man or woman wrongs another in any way[a]and so  is unfaithful to the Lord, that person is guilty and must confess the  sin he has committed. He must make full restitution for his wrong, add  one fifth to it and give it all to the person he has wronged” (NIV  1984). There is also a secondary emphasis of reintegrating offenders  back into society.

The topic of this course is Criminal  Procedure. By nature, criminal procedure is “rights-based.” This is  because much of the law comes from the Constitution, which was drafted  to enumerate the powers of government. This limits government behavior  to only those listed powers, but the Constitution also clearly lays out  some rights (but not all) of states and citizens, particularly certain  criminal procedure rights. As such, it can be said that criminal  procedure focuses on the offender’s rights and government behavior.

Based on your practical and educational experience, what is the  focus of the criminal justice system, restorative justice, or criminal  rights? Give specific examples.

Can these seemingly competing perspectives be better harmonized?  Provide at least 1 reference and 1 Scripture to support your answer.
