Criminal Justice Discussion2

Criminal Justice Justice in the society should be provided to all those who have been offended whether dead or alive. This woman was physically abused by her husband and the abuse led to death of the woman and child. With enough evidence, the man should be found guilty and arrested. In this case it would be legal to use the VHS tape as evidence as it indicates the criminal when committing the crime. This is because the offended had passed away and there was no one to account for the events on that day except for the tape that had been taken by the private polygrapher. The judge responsible for the case can understand the events of that day by watching the video since the criminal does not want to agree to the accusations (Garland 20). The one offended on the other hand had died hence making that to be the only available evidence.
The evidence can be allowed as it clearly indicates what had happened on that day. The problem could be the person to prove the truth behind the tape as the woman was dead. This indicates that the case cannot be called off just because the victim is dead but it can still go on in order to find out the truth with the little evidence available (Garland 20). With the current technology, the witnesses do not have to be present in person in order to prove their case right but the court can use the available evidence and argue from it. This will serve as a vital step in raising the public confidence in the legal section. It is therefore right if the courts went ahead to accuse the victim using the evidence.
