Strong law and order system strives to achieve justice and minimize the social evils. Through effective law enforcing agencies, including police, courts and prisons, an active law and order system makes utmost effort that justice is served to the people. If we peep into the reality, it can be observed in the some of the present societies of the world that law and order system tends to favor few while discriminating others. Some of the views also suggest that social evils are the outcome of the corrupt human nature, rather than the unjust and inappropriate social
However, in reality, it is almost impossible for society to completely wipe out crime through punishment. Nevertheless, everything worthwhile has to be done to reduce crime and make society better. Utilitarianism thus considers a means to an end, regardless of whether the means itself is bad, a true justification (Hooker, 2011). Whether bad or good, a means is justified if it helps in the achievement of socially acceptable goals. The punitive and restrictive measures that society takes to eradicate crime could be attributed to the high rates of crime in modern society.
Active resistance is effective in stopping the conflict in war, but when is fighting violence with violence ever an efficient way of ending violence. It just produces more destruction and bloodshed. With passive resistance comes hope, dignity, and the preservation of the victims’
In terms of legality, it seems that positive results excuse the detective's behaviour with the hard-boiled genre having a general attitude of acceptance on this. However, the novels do suggest the fragile position of the detective as it is a matter of making a wrong decision that can turn make their questionable methods turn against them; they might become criminals even though it was not their intention. The implication in terms of morality, suggests the question of morality could be above the law, yet at the same time creates an ambiguous space where the detective's morality has to be genuine as they become the judge of the criminal's fate. Chandler's agues that the hard-boiled detective is a man of honour, yet as argued before, the detective remains on a fine line between legality and criminality and, therefore, it is more complicated than being certain that the detective is good of heart. At the end, the PI have more benefits than the police due to their position of being an outsider and being able to defy the rules, however, they can only get away with it as long as they bring the criminals to justice and remain on the side of legality.
The paper will also demonstrate the need for a strong political will and firm determination of law enforcement officers to fight this crime, the need to have sufficient measures and incentives to persuade the victims to cooperate with law enforcement officers, and the need to enhance international cooperation in order to make the suppression of trafficking in persons an attainable goal. Human trafficking in Thailand can be tremendously reduced and possibly eliminated through the means of education, organizing a fundraiser and raising anti-human trafficking awareness campaigns, and the creation of child protection networks and poverty alleviation projects through school and university funds. Apart from raising awareness and organizing a fund raiser to be more aware and involved in the alleviation of human trafficking, actions should be taken to help the victims who got dragged into the dark side. Victims should be given free medical assistance and therapy funded by the anti-human trafficking fundraisers and businesses should hire the victims as interns and help them set up a career to further support
they likely will not offend unless several other factors are present. That is to say having a predisposition does not make them a ‘criminal’ – but in my opinion, it is essential to deal with these problems hands on through rehabilitation. On several occasions is it quite possible through rehabilitation to target these predispositions and reduce or eliminate the possibility of committing crime all together. Many of these
Main causes of crime are poverty. Remote causes of crime are family problems and peer influence. In order to combat these, there is a lot of ways that we can do to ensure a safe, secure and reliable environment. It is important not only to our national sense of well-being, but also to our national security and economy. Crime rates can be decreased by strict rules, moral education, parental guidance, and so on.
I think I could see it very clear at AVP that these individuals who had a very violent past where they're talking about it with such patients that it is hard to imagine that they could have been violent. Restorative justice must be more than a program within the current system. Elliot argues in her book that “Facilitating this shift requires a rethinking of the assumptions around punishment and justice, placing emphasis instead on values and relationships. But if we can achieve this change, we have the potential to build a healthier, more ethical and more democratic society”. AVP has been known to help reduce violence within prisons, reduce recidivism, and improve communication both among the incarcerated community and with prison authorities.
Hotspot mapping is defined by Braga (2005:317) as ‘a very popular way for police departments to prevent crime’. Emphasizing on the role of hotspots, Gahlin and Johansson(2014:06) state that ‘previous studies related to crime prediction using hotspots shows that crime mapping together with other crime reducing methods can significantly reduce crime in areas.’ Hart and Zandbergen (2014) confirm that hotspot mapping has the potential to predict spatial patterns of crime, thereby assisting police force to come up with preventative methods or precautionary measures in areas predicted. Their study further elaborates on different levels of hotspots analysis which depend on the size of the geographical area investigated. Gahlin and Johansson (2014) also highlights the impact the size of an area has on hotspot mapping. All in all hotspot mapping helps police force to identify high-density crime areas, types of crime committed, and the best proactive way to respond.
There is emphasis on the rehabilitation of offenders rather than on their imprisonment. However, since it was enacted, law enforcers and even social workers have blamed RA 9344 for the widespread commission of criminal activities involving minors who know that they cannot be charged in court, even if they are caught red-handed or positively identified by their victims. The Katarungang Pambarangay also limits the number of cases that may be amicably settled. The idea of Restorative Justice is overall beneficial. It reduces repeat offenders.
