- If we could predict, with 100% certainty, that someone is going to commit a violent act in the future (and letâ€™s say thereâ€™s nothing rehabilitatively) that we could do about it, should we wait for that person to commit that crime before punishing? Or should the govâ€™t step in and preemptively incarcerate that person? Why or why not? If predictive sentencing is about protecting future victims why should we wait until that offender has committed a crime?
- Return to the board and read over the posts of your fellow classmates. Choose at least one classmate and create a post responding to his/her initial post on the Discussion Board. Be thoughtful in your response, indicating your agreement/disagreement with their posting and give a careful reasoning of your position. Please note: in all of your postings/replies, you must demonstrate careful reasoning and logic to bolster your position. Unsubstantiated opinions have no place in this area.
