For Dxj Writer: Week One Discussion Question No. 1 "Victimless

Resolved Question:

For Dxj Writer:
Week One
Discussion Question No. 1
"Victimless or Not"

Due, Wednesday, February 15, 2012, Arizona Time, midnight


The debate continues regarding whether to decriminalize “victimless” crimes like drug offenses, helmet laws, gambling, and consensual sexual offenses, like prostitution.

a. Critics argue that attempts to treat such offenses as crimes are ineffective, lead to corruption, overburden the courts and police, and cause a lack of respect for the law.
b. Others argue that the crimes are not “victimless” and should remain a defined crime.

Please post your response to the following:


· Do the behaviors listed above affect others? Can you think of any behavior that does not affect others?

· Do you believe the state should regulate behavior that arguably does not hurt anyone, such as drug laws, helmet laws, prostitution, or gambling? Explain your answer.

Can you respond to this answer or statement below, based off of how you answered and feel about your original you gave! No requiements-just trying to keep or start a group discussion.

 

With the listed crimes I would have to say that they would indeed affect others. Although they may not affect people directly, their behavioral effects can have consequences of those around, or the family that loves them. And right now I can't think of any behavior that doesn't affect someone, because our actions and behavior many times reflect the ramifications that may develop as the results.
Therefore I would have to admit that I strongly feel that the state should definitely regulate behavior such as the drug laws, helmet laws, prostitution, and gambling. Because as some people argue that others aren't affected, I beg to differ. Someone engaging in drug activity can have dangerous affects on others if aggressive behavior manifest, which is common in drug use or abuse. Not wearing a helmet can be treatening for the person who may unfortunately hit the person not wearing it. Prostitution is the sexual activity for money, and many times they don't take precaution for sexual diseases that can affect many. And finally, gambling can became a habit that can lead to stealing to get money for this habit. So all of these above behaviors can affect others.

Hi! Let me think a little.............

Customer: replied 2 years ago.
Ok,but it doesn't have to be anything majorly over the top! Simiple
Customer: replied 2 years ago.

There will be another one coming your way!

 

How should the state and federal governments regulate the "victimless" crimes?

Should they be crimes or be civil infractions?

In Nevada, for example, prostitution is legal in certain circumstances. It is regulated by a state agency.

Is it better for the prostitute to be regulated by the state so that she/he must follow the regulations like testing, paying taxes, etc.? Would it be safer and decrease the crime rate?

 

 

NO REQUIREMENTS---JUST RESPOND TO THE ABOVE(SIMPLE)

Expert:  DXJAnswerMagic replied 2 years ago.

Obviously everything any person does affects another even people beyond their own family and social circles. However, many states have raised the amount of marijuana one can have before it is criminal because of the rise in court cases related to such and the ways in which such cases can give rise to corruption within the criminal justice system. By doing so, of course, one could argue that this kind of change in the law is more aligned with DUI laws and limits.

 

Without a doubt, people do get hurt without helmets, but helmets are largely a personal choice. Riders are fully aware of the dangers.

 

If prostitution were not criminal and legalized, the health concern would be significantly lessened because laws would be enacted relative to the practice. This would also lessen the amount of human trafficking, violence, corruption and other abuses the current laws engender.

 

Even though gambling can become a habit, some forms of gambling are commonplace and do occur such as work betting pools on games, etc.

This is not to say organized crime betting and those affecting more people should be legalized or overlooked, this is just exploring the realities of society.

 

No matter what you criminalize or do not criminalize, we are all victims of something. After all,what is legal is not always moral. In fact, many behaviors that are "legal" are actually immoral and corrupt, by extension.
