Do the accused in the US of the US have more rights than law abiding citizens?
because the American system to me alwayy has to be voted in by elected official of the supreme court.No.
And how can they? Just look at your own question...you seem to have just been judge and jury for anyone that someone else has accused of anything -- and you apparently feel they are all guilty - or at least not law abidding! They are accused. Sometimes wrongly and by people who themselves are misdirected. Convoluted ideas like the one in your question actually indicate that the accused should have, because they need, more protection...
I guess your definition of "law abiding" is all those that haven't been accused? Because I'll wager that the list of people who haven't been "accused" of ....jay walking, cheating on taxes, or hurting someone or thing, etc....is a very different list than those who actually haven't done those things.

It means you home is your property and your domain. It means that you are allowed to defend your home and property to the best of your ability against intruders.

Which goal of criminal punishment is more important reforming criminals into law-abiding citizens or exacting retribution of behalf of the victims of crime?
At present convicted criminals are mainly warehoused. It is impossible to reform criminals into law-abiding citizens because they have never been formed into law abiding citizens in the first place. Instead, they go to prison and come out the same as when they went in. The main reason prisons exist is because schools do not have discipline. The class clowns and students who will not learn today become the prisoners of tomorrow. Prisons are the…
For the most part, yes. Constitutional protections limit the power of the state to interfere in the lives of citizens. The state interferes most when a person is charged with a crime, so people accused of crimes have rights to ensure the state doesn't abuse its power. There are no corresponding protections for victims, as people are generally victimized by other people, not the government.
Some states or people (like Virginia's Patrick Henry) thought that the Constitution did not adequately protect individual citizens' rights. Therefore, a Bill of Rights was added so more states would ratify the Constitution, and the American people were afforded more protection than with the Constitution alone. The Bill of Rights added a significant number of rights and privileges not given to citizens under the Constitution alone.
Both tyrannies and oligarchies can be "freedom less" in political rights terminology. In each of these types of governments, the freedom allowed to its citizens fluctuates. A benevolent tyranny run by a dictator can allow citizens certain rights not afforded to the citizens living in an oligarchy or vice versa.

Guns can and are a protective measure in the hands of a lawful, responsible, level headed citizen, law enforcement officer, and military personnel. If the carrying of a concealed firearm was more excepted and more responsible, law abiding citizens did so, society would be exponentially safer. Say a nut job with a gun ran into a mall shooting everyone in sight; men, women children, young, and old. If a responsible gun owner who was properly…
