The first section of Part IV deals with corrections and examines how we deal with individuals that commit crimes. The readings explore how our definitions of justice are derived from the treatment and punishment of people who commit crimes. Capital punishment has always been a highly debated topic. There has been a resurgence of this debate as issues of due process, equal justice under the law, and cruel and unusual suffering from the drugs used have sparked ethical debates on the death penalty.
