What's The Point Of The Eighth Amendment?

By Brittany Antonacci June 15, 2020 0 comments

Hello Fellow Americans,

Today we’ll be continuing our in-depth series at a look into the constitution—primarily covering the Eighth Amendment. We’ll be giving a little background history as well as the purpose it holds today.

So, without further ado, let’s get started…

The Eighth Amendment states…

"Excessive bail shall not be required, nor excessive fines imposed, nor cruel and unusual punishments inflicted."

This amendment makes sure that punishments for crimes are not excessive, cruel, or unusual.

This ensures there is NO…

 

Excessive Bail

 

This portion of the amendment is to protect those who are arrested for a crime—meaning a judge can NOT set an excessive price for bail. Instead the price of bail is based off the harshness of the crime, to ensure the bail isn’t so high that it couldn’t be paid.  

 

Excessive Fines

 

When individuals are charged with crimes they are sometimes given fines, this part of the amendment states that “fines should not be excessive.” Also, that the fines should be dependent upon what type of crime was committed.

 

Cruel and Unusual Punishment

 

This part of the amendment protects those convicted of a crime from “cruel & unusual” punishments. Meaning they can’t be whipped, abused, or treated in any sort of horrific way.

 

Basically, this amendment is to protect the rights of individuals who are convicted of any crime. Let us know if you have any additional questions on this amendment and we’ll be happy to answer them in the comments.

 

See You Later Patriot!!!
