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.
Officer Bucklin’s answers were interesting and they weren’t surprising by any means. I agree a hundred percent when he said that he thinks the amount of force the officer used on the young lady in South Carolina was unacceptable. I also agree when he said that people only look at one side of a story. There has been many recent incidents where people have only looked at one side of the story. This makes a police officers job much harder, due to the fact that no one is looking to see what happened to them in the situation.
The state gives a person a gun and a badge, it instantly gives them a free pass to do as they please and the right to kill whom they deem a threat to public safety. Police officers are the citizens who take the oath to “serve and protect”, but quite ironically they pose a greater threat to society because of the fact that they are everywhere and they just seem to be able to get away with everything they do to a certain extent. Where is that line drawn? Who makes the decision if they crossed the line? Police should not have the mentality that they are immune to the court of law due to the fact mere fact that they are officers of the law.
Police corruption and the law breaking the law has very serious and unpleasant consequences, but the high profile scandals we hear about say a lot about how the establishment works nowadays. Yes, there was a level of expectation from the police who were involved in the incidents at Horsnett Farm, but experience established that expectation was never met Quote from Napoleon Bonaparte comes to mind ‘Never ascribe to malice, that which is adequately explained by incompetence’. Incompetence is the safest fallback position for the police force, because the alternative, in systemic corruption and abuse of power at the highest level is too awful to contemplate. Police
Remember with bigger responsibility, bigger demands, I know law enforcement they have power and authority. They are not at the same level as a regular citizen and it may be essayer to cover up any type of deviance. Put it this way if you are the owner and employee it is essayer to cover any mistake done by yourself and no one gets blamed of any wrong doing. Now I’m not making any excuses for the police because, I believe the police should be process in a higher stander and harder sentences. I will be talk about a taboo that it is not said in the force you have to be in and no one talks.
magine a world without laws, Imagine people being able to commit crimes without anything being done, Imagine how all this important information about laws and why we have them would be nothing in the world today. Crimes are committed on a daily basis, but the law does everything to help those people who are in danger of committing those crimes by stopping them before it’s too late. sometimes the crimes are committed before the law can get to them so enforcement takes the job of taking their freedom away for them. Law Enforcement is important because without it everyone would be afraid of life. Everyone needs it for as long as Humanity exists because as humans people create mistakes that can severely harm and hurt others.
Only a person who is deeply dissatisfied, has much energy, is willing is break old bonds, and who has the insight to address sensitive issues can motivate change. In short, instead of dismissing the complaints of disgruntled employees, the ISPA should seek them in order to understand truth from the troopers’ perspective (Berg, 2007). Second, the courts and legislatures have recognized that police officers have a constitutional right to free speech (Peak et al., 2010). The Court ruled that an officer’s derogatory remarks toward the police department are not necessarily unreasonable. According to the Indiana State Police policy, troopers cannot exercise their right to free speech (Whitesell, 2011, August 30).
There are a lot of men and women in the force that are good people, but it’s the few that abuse their power and beat people for no reason that make the whole force look bad. Those few should not be on the force; we want the peoples that can handle power correctly and make the nation a safer place. Although there are officers that will break with power we can’t let them be the faces of the police. We can’t be scared every time there is a police officer near us. We should be glad their is an officer around us and we should feel safe.
Ordinarily, using the legal definition of a crime is the best way to ensure that an intentional violation of law is enforced, however it goes without saying that not all laws are enforced all the time, which is an acceptable practice (Bohm & Vogel, 2011). It should be noted that although it would be a positive practice to eradicate many unenforced laws, it would be a daunting task to do so on a regular basis, which is why many laws go unenforced in the first
Offering to bribe a police officer could land you in serious trouble, and at the very least, raise some suspicion and lead to a lengthy detention. Ethically, the values that differentiate it from the Mexico City system are that as a society, we all should contribute towards maintaining law and order, and as such should publicly fund police in whole. Another value of this ethical argument is that the lack of incentive for police to look for bribes deters police officers from seeking out opportunities to extort the public. As such, the police are more likely to focus on the more serious crimes and enforce the law as dictated by their training, rather than worrying about making money (Williams,
