The debt in the U.S. is very high as of right now, according to the us debt website we are $21 trillon dollars in debt as of today. The goverment has spent lots of tax money to raze prostitution but obviously none of it has worked or even helped in the slightest. If we legalized this it could help the economy because we could start taxing that 32,000 that I mentioned earlier made by the pimps weekly instead of losing money from trying to demolish this profession. Lets take a look at Greece for a second, Greece was in very bad economic crisis and as soon as they legalized this, they were able to get out of debt and pay back the other countries. Also, the demand for this profession is very high and it will never change, so no matter how high the price goes up the demand will always remain the same.
Juveniles in the justice system need an alternative to incarceration because incarceration has been proven to increase criminal activity instead of providing a rehabilitation system for the juveniles. Juveniles in New Orleans are being arrested at a high rate for non violent offenses. Most juveniles who commit non violent offenses are tried as adults in court (Louisiana Center for Children’s Rights). After juveniles are convicted they are subjected to incarceration which leads to trauma and an increase in criminal activity (Hasselle). Also, while the juveniles are in prison they lose essential educational opportunities , because of the lack of
The documenting of their crimes, beliefs, and even the length of their sentence. Later on in history criminals became against against tattoos. Showing the cops all of the crimes you 've committed didn’t seem like the best thing to brag about. Even with the dislike of tattoos the percent of criminals with tattoos skyrocketed. Estimated 90% of criminals have a tattoo somewhere on there body.
Many high school parties are filled with alcohol and other drugs, and if under the influence, driving becomes dangerous for themselves and everyone else on the road. Driving under the influence is also illegal and the cause of many deaths every year. The curfew would prevent many teenagers from going and partying while also keeping themselves safe from the driving under the influence. The opposition of the curfew believes that the curfew only interferes with the busy lives of teens who have late extracurricular activities. It is believed by them that this would only ruin their productivity and negatively affect their lives.
Introduction Everyone has their own opinion on how policemen or policewomen do their job, but not all cops are doing their job the right way. The police are protectors, but they are also part of the problem; police arrest criminals and help the public be as safe as they can, but police corruption still causes an issue. There are plenty of good, even extraordinary, police officers. There are also plenty or corrupt or horrible police officers. Statistics, though, show that the great far outweighs the horrible.
Many such cases had to be dismissed or cleared due to many Americans turning into "criminals". "The government set up the "Federal Prohibition Bureau" to police prohibition, this did not deter people and organized crime continued to be the main supplier of booze. With a large coastline it was almost impossible to police with only five percent of alcohol ever being confiscated." (Nash, “Organized”). "Large quantities of alcohol were smuggled in from Canada, overland and via the Great Lakes."
The Stop-and-Frisk street interrogations have proven to be wildly inefficient with “nearly nine out of 10” of the “more than 5 million” New Yorkers who have been stopped having been “completely innocent” (“Stop-and-Frisk” 1). Statistically the policy has been a failure, so the continuation of the policy reinforces the idea that the motives behind the policy are bigoted in nature. Every year since the implementation of Stop-and-Frisk, blacks and latinos have combined to account for at least 80% of those who are stopped by the police (“Stop-and-Frisk” 1-2). After evaluating the
The penalties for drinking and driving are strict while the penalties for texting and driving are weak. In the state of california if someone is caught driving under the influence they can get fined for about a thousand dollars or more and they could also go jail for about four days to six months. If someone is caught texting and driving they are fined for about twenty to fifty dollars (Fumento). Texting and driving and driving under the influence are both very dangerous and should not be done , but many people do not take texting and driving seriously. Solutions to texting and driving are that when teens are taking their driver’s test a requirement to pass should be how they respond in a situation when they are receiving phone calls and messages.
Police and media have been in the news lately and mostly for the wrong reasons. The media can highlight police officers in a good light or a bad light, However, most people only get to see the one percent of police officers that shed a bad light over all police officers. One example would be the Michael Slager case where he shot Walter Scott, and was found guilty of violating Walter Scotts civil rights while unlawfully using his gun. Cases like these make the public believe all police officers are and should not be trusted. The media rarely shows the good acts of police officers.
They must know what can happen to them right well. Teenagers are the ones who mostly get into deadly crashes it 's also very risky to just look away for a split second the driver could go into a head on collision, with another car. The statistics show that they mostly happen at night because younger people think that there is no one else on the road. Also in 1999 there were 6,368 deadly car accidents involving teen drivers and 45% of them happened at night. “But now people in 2008 the overall number dropped and 4,322 fatal crashes involved teen drivers but this time 50% of them were at night.
Many people are against the move of the magistrate building because of the thought of criminals roaming throughout their neighborhood are most likely thinking of the crimes committed by juveniles within the township. These hypothetical crimes that community members are worried about are drastically decreasing nationally and for my community. The violent crimes of minors that people are worried about entering their neighborhoods has decreased by nearly 10% within the last
Minority New Yorkers on a daily basis have experienced the negative actions of the NYPD by simply walking or driving. This would not be considered suspicious if you were not a minority male. Families never have an opportunity to feel safe when their male family members leave their home because of the actions of the NYPD officers. There are more than 179 cases of unarmed victims killed by the police (Kerby,2012). Improving the relationships of the minority communities and the NYPD is very important to strengthen New York City and combat crime.
In my research paper my topic is about the brutality of police tactics, and how they plan on improving these to make their attempts at arresting less forceful. “Are we becoming a police state?” This question is asked by many Americans today, Why? Because there are so many deaths by police that many feel like they are superior to laws, and often times the criminal offences they cause are overlooked. The fact that it’s only few cops that do this, they all get the bad reputation. This is backed up by: Paragraph 2 of Targeting U.S. citizens for killing.
Although the Miranda Rights have helped many people throughout their cases, it has also hurt the police departments all across America. After the Miranda Rights were enforced to be used after arresting, the number of confessions from suspects fell sixteen percentage points. It also affected the number of cases solved because the suspects no longer confessed about the wrong they did so there were large number of cases that never gotten solved. Many crimes were let unsolved and they dramatically fell in numbers like the cases of violent crimes solved dropped 25% and property crimes solved fell as well. To put the numbers in perspective , if the Miranda rights weren 't put into place between 8,000 to 36,000, or more robberies would have been solved in 1995 according to Paul Cassell, that 's a lot of robberies that could have been
In 2012, almost seven thousand inmates were serving life sentences for crimes they committed as juveniles (603). Sentencing and correctional facilities were not insusceptible to the confusion of the times, but also faced additional inconvenience. Sentencing research uncovered major discretion and something unlike anything they have ever seen before, resulting in negative punishments for minorities. The conditions in prisons led to fights and the death/injury of inmates and staff. Crime rates rising, social disobedience, and drug use increasing has alarmed many people (Mackenzie 2013 4).
