Private prisons tend not to house costlier inmates, due to the higher cost of supervising them. Scott Merryman states that, from 1990 to 1995, the overwhelming numbers of inmates in private facilities were classified as minimum-security, and this condition is still relevant today. Public prisons consist of twenty percent maximum-security inmates compared to the five percent in private prisons. Also, public prisons have thirty-five percent of their inmates in minimum-security, while the private prisons have sixty-five percent of their inmates in minimum-security. There are states that have private prisons that choose not to have any high maximum-security inmates at all.
The death penalty can be a greatly valuable device in sentencing criminals that have perpetrated a portion of the most exceedingly terrible crimes known to society. It is basic that we start to pass enactment making capital punishment lawful all through the United States so justice can be served appropriately. The morality of the death penalty has been hotly discussed for a long time. Those opposed to the death penalty say that it is immoral for the government to take the life of a citizen under any circumstance. This contention is refuted by Immanuel Kant who set forth the idea that, a society that is not willing to request a life of some individual who has taken another person 's life is essentially immoral.
Fake news (propaganda) can be very dangerous. An example of propaganda is when the US dropped leaflets over Iraq and told people that Saddam Hussein was responsible for the suffering. Also, take the Holocaust for an example people were blind sighted by lies and propaganda from Hitler which caused 7.6 million lives. We can change these events from repeating by not voting for corrupt people. If nobody believed in Hitler 's lies we could have been a stronger community and a stronger nation overall.
Hate crimes have become a serious issue, and continuing to leave them unreported can and will tear America apart. Before it is possible to find a solution to the problem, it is necessary to get to know the problem better. By definition, a hate crime is a crime motivated by racial, sexual, or other prejudice, typically one involving violence. According to FBI data, 60% of hate crimes are motivated by racial bias, which are composed of mostly anti-black crimes, followed by anti-white crimes, then anti-hispanic crimes. 20% of hate crimes were against religious groups, with anti-semitic crimes being most common, with crimes against Muslims following close behind.
We should raise gun restrictions rather than adding more guns because lives are being lost, guns only bring harm, and because we have seen the success of other nations who have raised restrictions. Guns violence has been on the headlines due to the recent mass shootings, this is because precious lives are being lost. Children, adults, and innocent people are being hurt. Not everyone that owns a gun wants to cause a mass shooting, but the
However, United States and United Kingdom’s airstrikes were ought to be extreme since the bombing sabotaged the innocent ones. The possible reason for US to undertake such actions was to avenge for the severe losses from the 9/11 event. Additionally, in order to demonstrate US’s strong military power to the globe, US had taken this as an opportunity. Whereas the US had successfully proven its troops’ strengths, Barrack Obama now faces criticism: rash, uncooperative, and brutal. Indeed, the United Nations Security Council might not be able to come up with the most feasible resolutions to cope with the dilemmas that take place in the Middle East and was unable to execute immediate actions; however, US’s defilement might provoke other series of social unrest in neighboring regions and more unknowing residents have to be sacrificed.
It’s crazy how society takes more action on imaginary scenarios rather than real-life situations. The government is so scared of what the outcome of its decision will be that it doesn’t act in the most efficient ways. This is why the government isn’t always the best with following through with these executions. The CNN article claimed how from 1978-1995, there was a so-called “Unabomber” that was held responsible for a string of mail bombings, resulting in the deaths of three people and the injuries of many others. These bombings are classified as terror cases,
Because there are so many religions there are different faiths and each faith has their own perspectives on how they view others. Religion is a strong persuader to almost anything and it can be transcended into helping or hurting others. For many hate groups, religion is a strong enough motivation to hate and even kill others. It’s not okay for Jewish and0 Muslim people to live in panic in a country like the United States where you have the freedom. If hate crimes don’t diminish or decline the results can only increase and endure to oppress minorities like Jews and Muslims for many generations to come.
It seem population density is to deter crime but that is not truly true because it seem that high density it offer a perfect oppuorunity for property crime . Property crime is about 1/3 out of all crimes that occur. Property crimes has include the follow crimes thefts, larceny, burglary, robbery,sort lifting, arson and vandalism. The statistic has shown that property crime have fell major about 32 percent in a ten year period.

The problem is that there seems to be an ever-increasing issue of people going and killing innocent people such as the 17 people killed at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School. Now some people have been saying that we need more gun control to fix the issue of school shootings, and although I believe that gun control has some merit and does need to have some form of implementation I don’t believe it fixes the underlying issue. Gun
However, when gun control laws are implemented, it is proven that crime rates will not decrease. In 1999, 6.3 million violent crimes were committed in the U.S. (Laws.com) These violent crimes include rape, sexual assault, robbery, and assault. It was shown that only 8% of these crimes involved usage of a firearm. In the early 1970’s, around 19% of murders involved guns. When gun control laws were implemented, the rate raised to about 50%.
Fresno County is located in the central regions of California (CA). Current estimates put the population at around 965,000 which represents a huge 20% increase over the last 14 years. Most of the population growth came from the Hispanic and Asian communities, which now represent over 33% of the total population. Given the County 's proximity to both Sacramento and Los Angeles, they too suffer from a large number of crimes and death related to drug abuse and addiction. Startling Statistical Information About Drug Abuse in Fresno County, California While Trust for America 's Health reported the state of California has the 15th lowest fatality rate (10.6 out of every 100,000 people) from drug overdose, the number is quite misleading considering the vast population of the state.
One of the biggest controversies surrounding the events of September 11th focuses on whether the Bush administration actually allowed the attacks to occur so that the U.S. could increase its presence in the Middle East to gain control of its resources. This controversy also sparks debate on the validity of the 9/11 Commission Report. The United States has been the main catalyst in destabilizing the middle eastern countries, yet this idea that the U.S. government had a large part in creating the chaos in the Middle East and supporting terrorist groups, such as Al Qaeda, is still widely dismissed and rejected, despite obvious and overwhelming evidence. It took advantage of internal tensions, and blew them to great wars that left destruction in
Framework: If we are able to prove that UBC’s are not effective, and should not be used, then we win. Contention 1: Implementing background checks would take a lot of money and manpower to actually work and would cause more people to become victims of crimes. Subpoint A: By implementing background checks it would raise the price of most firearms by more than 150 dollars. This would stop people who need guns to protect their families in low income neighborhoods from obtaining them because of their high prices. Subpoint B: This would also cause more people in low income areas to be victimized by criminals and have no defense against it.
Communities of color were targeted for crimes and given larger prison sentences than their white counterparts. In the Rockefeller Drug Reform of 2009, the racial disparities significantly decreased in the early periods following the reform (Parsons, Wei, Henrichson, Drucker, & Trone, 2015). Black and Hispanic individuals, in 2008 were three-times more likely than whites to receive a prison sentence; by 2010, black and Hispanic individuals were only twice as likely to be charged than whites. Although this is still an issue that needs to be addressed, it is a significant accomplishment compared to previous years. There is still said to be harmful biases in the criminal justice system (Parsons, Wei, Henrichson, Drucker, & Trone,
