Retributive Justice

Directions:Answer the questions below.  Your written responses should be at least one half of one page in length and should utilize APA guidelines for formatting and citations.  Please cite examples from the textbook, supplemental reading assignment, or this module’s required video resources, when applicable.


1.      Retributive Justice is a philosophy that the punishment ought to fit the crime; e.g., “eye for an eye” philosophy. Give your position on retributive justice and reasons why you believe or do not believe this philosophy is effective as a means of justice.


2.      Today, the law does not require forfeiture of property for committing a felony; therefore the common law rule is no longer applicable. Explain how most states distinguish felonies from misdemeanors and explain what, in your opinion, should be just for victims.


3.      Compare and contrast the “Lesser Included” and “Greater Included” Offenses.



4.      Distinguish between territorial jurisdiction vs. jurisdiction over the person and subject matter.
