President Richard Nixon declared a war on drugs in 1971. The expectation then was that drug trafficking in the United States could be greatly reduced in a short time through federal policing—and yet the war on drugs continues to this day. The cost has been large in terms of lives, money and the well-being of many Americans, especially the poor and less educated. By most accounts, the gains from the war have been modest at best.

    The Eighth Amendment to the United States Constitution states: “Excessive bail shall not be required, nor excessive fines imposed, nor cruel and unusual punishments inflicted.” This amendment prohibits the federal government from imposing unduly harsh penalties on criminal defendants, either as the price for obtaining pretrial release or as punishment for crime after conviction.

    The Cruel and Unusual Punishments Clause is the most important and controversial part of the Eighth Amendment. In some ways, the Clause is shrouded in mystery. What does it mean for a punishment to be “cruel and unusual”? How do we measure a punishment’s cruelty? And if a punishment is cruel, why should we care whether it is “unusual”?

    At the most visible end of the Enlightenment were a group of thinkers who consciously sought human advancement through logic, reason, and criticism. Biographical sketches of these key figures are below in alphabetical order of their surnames.

    perhaps the Australian perspective PDF presented at the web page (below) discussing Revisiting the Relationship between Retributive and Restorative Justice will be of assistance to you In this essay, I raise a complex and contentious question: what is the role of punishment in a restorative justice process? I raise the question to invite discussion and debate in the field, not to assert a clear and unequivocal answer. The term punishment evokes strong images and feelings in people; it has no singular meaning. This is especially the case when it is linked to a restorative justice process, that is, an informal legal process that includes lay and legal actors, which is partly, but not entirely state punishment. I have not worked out many technical features of the argument,1 but I am convinced that those interested in the idea of restorative justice need to grapple with the idea of punishment much more at the web page

    Only the House of Representatives has the power to begin considering a bill that makes Americans pay taxes. Also, only the House has the power to make a President go to trial for a crime against the United States. This is called impeachment. http://www.uscis.gov/files/nativedocuments/M-638.pdf EASY TO UNDERSTAND: http://www.congressforkids.net/Constitution_threebranches.htm http://www.congressforkids.net/Legislativebranch_house.htm
