...Head: INTENT AND THE CODE 1 Different Intents and the Model Penal Code Difference From Common Law INTENT AND THE CODE 2 Abstract Although there are definitions established within Criminal Culpability, mainly intent, there continues to be discussion over the intended meanings. Specific intent, general intent, transferred intent and strict liability are frequently referenced in the determination of criminal offenses but continue to provide a level of confusion to the law professionals. The intent determines the mindset of the person accused of the crime and provides guidance to the process in which they are punished. These intents are part of the mens rea for the crimes committed and differ from the Model Penal Code. The Model Penal Code has served to simplify the definitions used in the previously mentioned intents. INTENT AND THE CODE 3 There are many differences in the interpretations of Common Law intents and liability. These intents are identified as: specific, general, transferred and strict liability which governs decisions of lawmakers and judges. The complexity in understanding the defined intents and applying them uniformly creates a feeling of disproportionate accountability from members of the public. The Model Penal Code (MPC) changes these intents in common law to four mental states: purposely, knowingly, recklessly and negligently. The “MPC expressly rejects......

Common Law

...1.2.1 Common law The term common law gives rise to diffi culty as it has several meanings, so any meaning depends upon the context in which the term is used: Common law may mean the law created by the common law courts in contrast to the law created by the Court of Chancery, which was called equity. Common law may m • ean all the law created by the courts, including the law of equity, as opposed to the law created by Parliament, that is legislation. In this sense, common law may be also termed ‘judge- made’ law. • Common law may refer to a legal tradition which defi nes the English legal system and other derivative legal systems as opposed to the civilian legal tradition exemplifi ed by the systems of mainland Europe. Apart from England and Wales other examples of a common law tradition are to be found in the legal systems of the states of the United States (with the exception of Louisiana), Canada, and Australia. Common law in this sense refers to forms of law- making, particularly judge- made law, which is governed by the doctrine of judicial precedent. The characteristic feature of the civilian systems is that law is to be found in codes made by the legislature. The civilian tradition is seen in the legal systems of France and Germany. While the French law of contract is codifi ed and to be found in legislative form, the English law of contract is to be found mainly in the decisions of judges as reported in 7 Common law and equity the law reports.

Common Law

...Learning Materials COMMON LAW Common Law, Statute and Precedence are the sources for all laws accepted in the jurisdictions within the United States. Common law is based on the old English Legal System of laws based on the overthrow of monarchial dictators and the replacement with a representative system of Parliament. When the American Colonies established their independence in the late 1700’s they adopted much of the English legal system that they knew when they immigrated to the “New World”. This became the initial basis for civil and criminal law in the newly formed United States. Common law results from judicial decisions handed down from the courts. Most of the common law in criminal issues pertaining to the modern criminal justice system has been subjugated by state and federal legislatures that have created statutes establishing criminal law violations. In dealing with Common Law there is a catch-22 type of situation. When a common law is overridden by a statute creation the history of the common law is vacated in terms of how laws are executed. The problem arises when the enforcement method of the new law has common law as its basis. If this is not deemed acceptable by society then another statutory law has to be created. Whenever new laws are enacted there are frequently challenges in court. These challenges depending on the jurisdiction of the law end up going through the system and various courts of appeals. Ultimately they may reach the US Supreme Court where...

Common Stock

...Shelby Johnson Week 5 Accounting IIDecember 13, 2013Common StockThe holders of common stock can reap two main benefits: capital appreciation and dividends. Capital appreciation occurs when a stock's value increases over the amount initially paid for it. The stockholder makes a profit by selling the stock at its current market value after capital appreciation. Dividends, which are taxable payments, are paid to a company's shareholders from retained or current earnings. Typically, dividends are paid to stockholders on a quarterly basis. Payments are usually made in the form of cash, but other property or stock can also be used. Payment of dividends, however, hinges on a company's capacity to grow -- or maintain -- current or retained earnings. This means ongoing payment of dividends cannot be guaranteed. Common stock has the additional benefit of enabling its holders to vote on company issues and when choosing the company's leadership. Usually, one share of common stock equals one vote. Preferred Stock Preferred stock doesn't offer the same profit potential as common stock, but it’s a more stable investment vehicle because it guarantees a regular dividend that isn't directly tied to the market as with the price of common stock. Preferred stock guarantees dividends, which common stock does not. The price of preferred stock is tied to interest rate levels; it tends to decrease if interest rates go up and increase if interest rates fall. Preferred stockholders get priority...

The Common Carp

...The Common Carp Is this species a producer, consumer, scavenger, or decomposer? What was the original source of the species? Carp originate from Asia but primarily China. In Asia, they were bread for food from as early as 1000 BC. How did the organisms gain entry into the region or country? Carp now live in most continents and an estimated 59 different countries. In most countries, carp were introduced for sporting and food such as in Europe, but sometimes carp were imported illegally. In Australia, carp were brought for sporting reasons and released in the early 1850’s. During the 1960’s, carp were illegally imported into Victoria, Australia from Germany. In the late 1800s, carp were distributed widely throughout the USA by the government as a food-fish, but they are no longer used as a food-fish. It is said that carp are believed to have been introduced into the Canadian province of British Colombia from Washington. They were first noted in the Okanagan Valley in 1912. Describe the organism’s life cycle and other general information about organisms that you were able to find. The common carp is part of the minnow family but can be easily identified by two pairs of barbells on each side of its upper jaw. The colours that it can be found in are: brass, bronze or yellow. Most common carp grow 12-25 inches in length and 1-10 pounds in weight. The common carp is a warm water species and likes to live in muddy areas. Mating season normally occurs in May through......

Tragedy of the Commons

...Richter Tragedy of the Commons Analysis The Tragedy of the Commons is an effective metaphor to understanding the exploitation of global property resources by private producers. Its flaws as a metaphor stems from the gross assumptions it makes on human behavior and motivations. When taken at face value, the metaphor can be used to explain broad resource issues that nations are still dealing with today, such as global climate change and the use of natural resources. However, when closely inspected, its generalization about the community-shared commons is not as accurate. Garret Hardin's article has received vast critical acclaim and is considered one of the finest works regarding natural resource issues. In his article, Hardin claims that all commonly owned resources are doomed to destruction. This is due to the fact that men are greedy, and instinctively pursue their own best interests. Given is an example involving a common pasture open to all, in which it is expected that every herdsman is going to try keep as many cattle on the commons as possible in-order to try make the most profit. However as the commons is overgrazed productivity goes down causing each herdsman to add more cattle in an attempt to bring their profits back up. It is in this desire for self-interest that the tragedy of the commons occurs. The Tragedy of the Commons metaphor is best understood when applied to large-scale resource issues. In order to do so, the community commons Hardin referred to......

Common Mistakes

...Common Mistakes Many organizations are faced with management, operational, technical and other challenges in their daily activities as they try to implement effective strategies to bring change and improve performance results. Resource wastage, unnecessary costs and time constraints are some of the consequences encountered by organizations that lack common change ideas that help maximize their operation capacity and deliver quality results. However, visionary leaders are trying to introduce standardized methodologies and approaches for quick, effective change performance through training workshops and other communication events to avoid repeating same mistakes that hinder successful results.

Tradgedy of Commons

...the human life. It mentions nothing about preserving the natural or physical environment as well. The strong part of this definition is that it does cover human life. When I think of environmental sustainability, my definition is to protect and maintain the physical and natural environments as well as protecting human life. It is something that is done to help ensure that we don’t run out of our natural environment such as trees and animals. Limiting the amount of hunting, fishing, and cutting down of trees is a few of the ways we can maintain environmental sustainability. 2. The Tragedy of the Commons is related to the environmental sustainability because they both are trying to protect resources. The Tragedy of the Commons is protecting public places from running out of resources such as fish or trees. The ethical issues that arise with The Tragedy of the Commons is that although people know they need to be conservative, not everyone abides by that. By having this issue, people tend to do the opposite of what they believe thinking that in the end it doesn’t matter because others don’t abide. For example, in one of the videos we were shown a pond full of fish on public property. The people who owned the private property understood that they needed to be conservative to maintain the level of fish needed. However, in the public fishing pond, there was no conservative action being taken by the public because most are focused on self-interest and not looking at......

Common Sense

...This essay will examine the differences between psychology and common sense. It will also discuss the obstacles and drawbacks that primary experience and common sense beliefs can have on the epistemological advancement of any experimental science. The paper will start with a brief history of psychology and then discuss the different perspectives and approaches within the field. Giving examples throughout and briefly touching on the pioneers in the development of psychology, this essay will argue that the use of systematic and objective methods of observation and experimentation in psychology make it much more than just 'common sense'. The bathroom floor is somewhat colder than the bedroom carpet. Most people would agree with this statement and pass it off as just 'common sense'. But what if a thermometer showed that the bathroom floor was actually the same temperature as the bedroom carpet, and the real reason that the tiled floor in the bathroom 'felt' colder than the bedroom carpet was because the carpet is a better thermal insulator than the ceramic tile? Therefore feet lose heat to the floor more slowly on the carpet than on the tile floor, and consequently the cold receptors in the feet's skin are not stimulated to the same extent (Refinetti, 1992). This example, although not specifically a psychological one, shows that the element of primary experience and common sense beliefs in most humans can prove to be an obstacle in the development of any experimental......

Common Good

...the Augustinian rule states: "The degree to which you are concerned for the common good (rem communem) rather than for your own, is the criterion by which you can judge how much progress you have made." This passage synthesizes Augustine’s conviction regarding personal growth in Christian love. It appears in a context wherein Augustine gives the guidelines for day-to-day life in community, a life characterized by mutual service. We have already pointed out the importance of the social dimension in Augustine’s thought. Since human life is social by nature, the development of a person cannot be separated from its social context. The same applies to the new life of the believer in Christ. The new man that is born from the waters of baptism lives the commandment of love. This life of love is verified in one’s service to the brothers and sisters in the community. Within this context, one’s progress in love is directly proportional to the intensity of one’s concern for the common good. The common good is "the sum total of social conditions which allow people, either as groups or as individuals to reach their fulfillment more fully and more easily." It possesses three essential elements: (a) the respect for the person as such; (b) the social well-being and development of the group to which the person belongs; and (c) peace which is the stability and security of the just order. The common good is graphically illustrated in the Lucan description of the......
