Hi, let me know what you need tonight. I'm going out of town tomorrow and likely won't have access to a computer until next Wednesday. Let me know what you need tonight and what else you need and when so we can plan. I'll check back in a few minutes.
I need two each night its eight total. Do worry u know I'm good for the break down of the bonus:)
I'll be up late tonight I'm doing another assignment powerpoint
Ok, I'll see how far I can get tonight.
ty no word count just substantial post
Yes, those are done.
Working on tohers.
Just a sec, I'll post.
Certainly when people think about robbery, burglary and theft they likely don't associate those terms with the actual definition of the crime. While most people probably don't consider this criminals certainly know the difference and the associated justice that is associated with such crimes in terms of their punishments and potential jail time. I actually enjoyed learning what makes each of those crimes unique depending on the circumstances involved. In my initial research I did not see the difference in first and second degree levels of these crimes but open further investigation I did discover that in many cases states have a similar but not exact way of defining the difference between first and second degree burglary. For instance, in New York second degree involves the use of a handgun, knife, etc but that the weapon was not readily available to kill or injure. If for instance, there was a gun but no bullets then that would be second degree but a loaded weapon that was being waved around would be first degree.
The three different classifications of the taking of property do a good job of defining the potential ways in which property theft exists and the level of severity of each of the different types. Theft is certainly a generic term and can encompass a number of different crimes. Crimes that involve the taking of property are varied and include things such as purse snatching, larceny, car theft, identity theft and usage of someone's credit cards. The advent of the internet and the ability to steal someone's identity is a relatively new type of theft that has certainly become very common and widespread. Basically any time property is taken without entering a building or in a public space would be considered a theft. Also, taking something from someone's property without actually “entering” would also be theft.
Done in about 5-10 more minutes with all of them
Here are the other 6
I believe that robbery, burglary and theft are all crimes that certainly deserve a punishment that fits the level of the crime. In my own personal opinion I believe that robbery is by far and away the most serious of the offenses and deserves the most jail time. If someone commits a burglary at gun point the victims can suffer emotional distress as well as potential death. Putting others in that situation certainly deserves a punishment that is severe and will serve as a detriment to others who may commit the same crime.
From an overall perspective there is no way to completely eliminate robbery, burglary or theft. Regardless of the punishment someone will still commit such crimes. A clear example is the fact that some crimes carry with them the death penalty but people still commit those crimes. From that regard the goal is to deter those crimes. Increasing the punishment is certainly one way to accomplish this. Stopping robbery entirely would be impossible and for such a reason technology should be utilized to help detect such criminals to deter them currently and in the future based on the punishment. Certainly adding alarms to homes that are monitored would cut down on more crimes of this nature.
While I agree with the majority of your assessment I'm not sure I agree with your definition of armed versus regular robbery and the distinction between first and second degree robbery. Certainly robbing a person or business utilizing a weapon is a robbery but if the gun wasn't loaded the person may get off with second degree burglary. Armed robbery can constitute various forms. For instance, if someone robbed a store with a knife concealed on their person as opposed to waving a knife around it's likely that the crime may be considered second degree as there likely wasn't an imminent pending use of the potential weapon. In fact, no one may have seen the weapon until they were arrested.
According to my understanding of the differences in the degrees of the crime the issue at hand is whether the person had the intent of committing the crime and intended to use the potential threat against someone. In cases where there is no imminent threat then it would likely be second degree versus first degree but that is something a jury may well need to decide based on the circumstances. The punishment associated with the two is certainly different but there is not a clear definition based on precedent of what that punishment is as there are always circumstances involving the crime that must be taken into consideration.
You raise an interesting point when it comes to the perpetrator actually become the victim in the case. While it certainly is against the law to kill someone most states recognize the ability of the individual to practice self defense. If in turn the perpetrator feels threatened its unlikely they could sue as they were the one that perpetrated the crime and the person who was robbed was innocent in such regard. While the letter of the law certainly provides for self defense there are circumstances such as this where it would not apply and a jury certainly would likely agree that the person who initiated the crime is ultimately responsible.
I agree with your assessment that there is the clear distinction but it does sound a bit harsh for someone who just pushed someone instead of literally punching them. However, the law must define the difference and as such it stops at physical contact. There is no other definition surrounding the fact that such actions become battery. I agree that it may sound severe and it would likely be considered in punishment but the fact remains that such actions are considered battery. There has to be a dividing line at some point and I agree this is likely the best place to make it.
Let me know if that works or if you have questions. I'll be on a few more minutes to make sure you have everything you need.
