With this in mind, no wonder some police officers fall into corruption. Since the government infrastructure is weak, it allows organized crime to easily corrupt the government form the inside (“Fighting” Web). This organized crime turned out to be federal police officers turning their back against the law and helping the drug lords. Some officers are known to take bribes and help with criminal activity (Althaus Web). Many officers do not deny that
Crime would be uncontrollable as never before if there wasn’t some way to deter people from committing the acts. Prison is an effective deterrent, but with some people more is needed, prosecutors should have the option of using a variety of punishments in order to minimize crime. If criminals realize that committing a serious crime that will take them to the gallows, they are bound to think twice before acting. The crime rate in countries where this form of punishment exists is far less compared to other countries where it has been abolished. People may argue and claim there is no “evidence” to suggest that it acts as a deterrent , but then there is no “evidence” to suggest that it doesn't act as a deterrent either.
If you put the death penalty in play criminals will more than likely think twice before doing a crime because they know at the end of the day they will have to pay for there actions. Therefore death and crime rates will go down. The death penalty is essntial to protect our towns and loved ones lifes from the dangers of other people. The
Some prisoners may rather receive the death penalty and take the “quicker route” rather than spend the rest of their lives miserably with no chance of parole. A third advantage of life in prison is that punishments are scaled in an effective manner. This basically means that the more heinous the crime, the more severe the punishment will be. For example, if a person commits petty theft, they know that they are going to receive a punishment that actually fits their crime. “On the other hand, a person who commits a murder or a rape knows that they are risking their freedom, which can serve as a powerful deterrent” (Apecsecadmin).
This done by punishing them in every aspect of the crime. For example, if a person robs a bank with an illegal firearm they would be punished for owning a firearm and the atpeted robbery. The fifth rule is to do all this for a cheap price. The sixth rule is the most simple taller each punishment to each
Harris’ character is an example of police officers’ potential for corruption. For instance, when Harris misuses the police authority and uses some fake arrest warrant seizing millions of dollars from a former LAPD veteran, now an informant drug dealer, for personal gain. Norberg (2013) agrees that the exercising of the authority makes policing a morally risky profession. While at the armed robbery, Harris challenges Hoyt’s personal values and asks him to kill the drug dealer he raids, but Hoyt refuses, and Harris murders the man himself. Harris violates the police organization code of conduct rules and tries to introduce Hoyt into corruption, drugs, and murder.
However, even with the lack of matching DNA evidence, the boys were still convicted of the crime; they had confessed to the crime. Confessions are irresistibly persuasive, and the effects cannot be reversed. Once a confession is given, it corrupts everything else, trumping DNA evidence and even changing witness testimonies. With the prosecutor’s argument of “just because we didn’t get all of them doesn’t mean we didn’t get all of them,” the public was completely convinced that the boys had committed the crime, and once a strong belief that somebody is guilty of a crime is formed, the contradictory details do not matter. The evidence may not fit the accusation, but they do not fundamentally change the belief in their guilt.
Much of it comes down to professional discretion. When a person victimizes another person with a gun, the person has already committed a crime. Under many state and federal laws, it is an additional crime to use or possess a gun while doing something that is already a crime. Gun control advocates argue that we should crack down on gun offenders; however, we already go after those who rob banks and commit murder. Instead, they’re proposing we go after individuals who have guns;
Pink, who is apprehended by the police. The failed armed robbery creates a disastrous turn of events as soon as the police appear at the jewelry store. Although violence is part of the characters lives, the change of plans creates a catastrophic outcome. Many innocent people and cops are killed while the men escape the jewelry store because the police were tipped off of the robbery causing the heist to go wrong. The mobsters believed the robbery was a solid proof plan and did not foresee an undercover cop to be apart of the team.
When a kid commits a crime, they should be tried as an adult because they have either done something illegal, or they have taken someone's life. John Bongivengo of the Lawrence County District Attorney's Office said, "My choice is to either to charge him as an adult, or don’t charge him." When someone commits homicide, they should be tried as an adult because they took someone's life for a dumb reason, and committing homicide is not a good thing. When a kid does take an adults life or even any one's life

Basically what Assest Forfeiture is that it allows prosecutors to ask the court to freeze all proceeds from the crime and, if the person ends up being convicted, to have those proceeds forfeited. Civil Nuisance Abatement City Attorneys have found nuisance abatement to be an effective tool to hold property owners accountable for crimes committed on their property. As a result, the Legislature has strengthened nuisance abatement statutes. Victim Resources Since there is not enough funding for victims outreach, protection, and rehabilitation hinders the prosecution of human trafficking because victims are unable or unwilling to come forward.

Suspects commit crimes and often the victims are left wondering why the suspect’s rights seem to be more important than those of the victim. It does seem like an unfair game, the bully gets afforded everything, the victim left to suffer. In order for the justice system of the United States to stay the most balanced and civil rights friendly system in the world; suspects’ rights have to be respected and guarded so chaos doesn’t take over. Police officers through the years have gotten better with training and experience, guidance by prosecutors, and increased motivations to “do the right thing” to ensure suspects are processed correctly, and interrogated within the constraints of the U.S. Constitution. Seeing a conviction through to the end, the suspect afforded all protections under the law, and the victims seeing closure is the ultimate testament to how far law enforcement interrogations have come since Miranda.
