This analysis is written to focus on the Impact of sentencing guidelines on the Criminal Justice System. These criminal cases are recorded during the fiscal year 2011. During the year, the United States Sentencing Commission received information pertaining to 86,361 federal criminal cases in which the offender was sentenced during this year. Of all these cases, 86,201 involved an individual offender and 160 involved a corporation or “organizational” offender. The brief majority of these cases that were reported to the Commission involved mainly an individual defendant. However, over the last decade, the number of these cases has seemed to have increased every year except one. In the fiscal year of 2011, the increase jumped up to 2.7 percent over some of the number of some of the cases in the fiscal year 2010. These cases involved immigration, drugs, fraud, and firearms which continue to be some of the most common federal criminal cases and still continue to make up the majority of many of the federal felonies and Class A misdemeanors. Over the last decade, these four crime types have tended to be the most common. During the year of 2011, these crimes alone accounted for about 83.0 percent of all of the cases that were reported to the commission. However, the immigration cases have continued to be the fastest growing segment of cases in our federal system. During the year of 2011, a total of 29,717 immigration cases were reported to the commission, which was a

What is Love?
Love is the feeling you get towards someone or something that is almost unexplainable. It is not an obsession, but it is the constant reminder in the back of your mind that you have someone or something really special. It can hit you in various parts of your life but once it does, it leaves a long lasting impact.
Love is a crazy thing. It can be a feeling you get towards a person you truly care about, or it can also…
Love. What is love? Love is a very special and meaningful word to each human being. Love is built on a foundation of trust, a thin barrier between formality and chaos. As we grow older we learn to start to build friendship with the people we have things most in common with, along with the people who accept and understand us the best. Love can also be contemplated as a dangerous component of life that works to deceive and manipulate other people’s trust. Many people will argue that love is contaminated…

A pre-marital surprise
During my reading in the book “Listening is an act of love”, I stumbled on a story between a
man and a woman where surely love does conquer anything and gives the ability to give options. The
story that I chose to write about is from an interview between Seth Fleischauer, who interviewed his
grandfather William Jacobs. Here in this interview William recalls the visit from his mother-in-law while
in the hospital…
What Is True Love?
If love is to be true love and true connection to a partner does exist, it must comply with several “guidelines”. True love isn’t necessarily difficult to find and have, but if someone repeatedly attempts at true love, they will observe that it will never find them. The same goes for someone who has obtained true love but abuses it to his or her own independent gains and ignores the meaning of an everlasting and loyal bond to another. Some say that true love can literally…
Love and Marriage
When two people find true love, marriage is the one thing that can exceed their passion or desire to stay committed. However, if these individuals are of the same biological sex or gender identity, most people tend to oppose such recognition. Since 2001, more than ten countries have embraced the concept of same-sex couples marrying nationwide, even more, in 2012, there are proposals that exist to introduce same-sex marriages in an additional ten countries. Although it is a freedom…
The topic of love or communication through love has been a very interesting subject for me since I matured and became the person I am today. There are certainly many different types of love and thousands of its expressions, which are generalized into just one word love. For me, love is associated with the Universe. I strongly believe that love isnt only a part of human existence, but equally the part of the Universe. When I look at life, I see the balance in the Universe. Every day there…
All is fair in love and war- do you agree or disagree and explain why?
Love and war are two contrasting forces; the former involves care and personal attachment while the latter involves brute force and destruction. They are also very similar in the sense that success in love and war can lead to the creation of happiness, relationship, devotion, liberty and freedom etc. all of which can shape a persons or societies lifestyle. However, because of such tempting and important…
Mr. Davis stands up from his desk with a solo cup and walks around the room passing every students desk as he holds out the cup. Every student drops a folded piece of paper with his or her first and last name on it into the cup. The man doesn’t care too much for his underpaid job and expresses it very clearly. Yet, no one really knows how much he gets paid. But, he wears the same outfit every day. Black dress pants, a white long sleeve sateen dress shirt, and a sateen tie. We assume he has a low…
