Ethics and Criminal Justice
Conduct research using the library, news reports, Internet, and videos to find
information on restorative justice, inmate forgiveness, and the right to privacy.
A member of your family was brutally murdered. The inmate is currently on death
row, awaiting execution. A member of a victims’ rights group contacts your family
to discuss the possibility of meeting with your family and the convicted murderer.
The inmate wants to seek forgiveness before he is executed. The members of your
family are outraged that this group dared to even contact your family. Members of
your family express their concern regarding the invasion of their privacy. No
matter what the inmate will say, it will not bring the family member back, and your
family is not concerned with the inmate’s feelings or his desire to make amends for
the crime he committed. Most your family members are opposed to meeting the
convicted murderer, but you have some unanswered questions, and this would help you
deal with the death of your loved one.
You are going to have a family meeting on this matter to decide what action your
family should take. You are preparing some information and performing research on
whether or not meeting the convicted murderer would benefit your family and bring
closure to this tragedy. In your discussion, include theories of morality, values,
and consequences. You must also include the following information for the family to
ensure that everyone is fully informed:
In terms of ethics, describe the concepts and purposes of restorative justice and
Address some ethical issues related to the concepts of restorative justice and
Include some implications of restorative justice and how you would approach the
decision to allow or refuse a meeting with a convicted murderer.
Compose a description of the decision-making process, including the steps on how to
approach the situations, a list of questions if a meeting is granted, or a list of
possible reasons for rejecting the meeting.
