Have you ever wondered the similarities and differences between Joaquin Guzman (El Chapo) and Pablo Escobar? Joaquin Guzman and Pablo Escobar are the most popular drug lords in the entire world. Joaquin Guzman is a Mexican drug lord that leads a group known as the Sinaloa Cartel. Pablo Escobar was a Colombian drug lord that lead the Medellin Cartel. These two drug lords have earned billions of dollars from selling drugs all across the world.
The Mexican cartels have impacted the society by violating many rights that human have and that are protected. The Cartels are causing too much trouble to the world especially in Mexico and its neighboring countries. They have trafficking tons and tons of drugs to world and spread its violence to nation that live in peace. The cartels have been operating for while and keep growing becoming more powerful each day and nothing has stopped them yet. The Mexican cartels have constructed their empires through the violation of human rights in the business of drug trafficking, especially through torture and deaths, resulting in worldwide corruption.
These riots were so big that the United States National guard had to be called in order to calm down the people of Los Angeles. the King trial shows the evolution of an era that shuns what happens behind closed doors to an era which shows the harsh reality of police brutality with new means of communication and the growth of technology with the smartphone and videotaping. Kings substance abuse issues and how bad the cops actually beat King up led up to the Rodney King trial. Before the beating and trial King dealt with many substance abuse issues(Karen Bates). King was actually on
During the 1960’s and 1970’s President Nixon declared a war on drugs causing the demographic of criminals to shift as Attica was now a dumping ground for African Americans and Hispanics facing drug charges, causing Attica to become overcrowded, and increased the already poisonous racial atmosphere in the prison. During this time, the FBI and other agencies were cracking down on the Black Panther Party and other groups. These agencies were sending powerful leaders to prison and making them martyrs for their
The city of Las Vegas has changed rapidly from becoming a beautiful city to a violent place to live in. The city has seemed a rise in homicides as well in the last few years. The strong presences of these gangs are taking innocent lives and making the community a harder place to raise a family in. Many of the gangs in Vegas account for most the drug trade, as well as the staggering homicide rate. The gang problem is not only a problem in Las Vegas, but it is all over the world.
Los Aztecas: Gang and Drug Traffickers The Aztecas, otherwise known as, Los Aztecas emerged as a prison gang from El Paso, Texas in 1986 (“Barrio Azteca,” 2018). Los Aztecas are not only prominent in El Paso but also in Mexico. From its inception that gang has aided in drug trafficking operations. In recent years, the gang has had a significant increase in members. Specifically, in 1996 many deported Mexican criminals were returning to Mexico.
A combination of extreme violence (assassinations of political officials, competitors, etc.) and the development of networks of underground tunnels led Guzman to become the top drug smuggler across the border. However, Guzman was eventually arrested in 1993, which forced him to manage the Sinaloa Cartel from a prison cell. In this manner, Guzman had to overcome a series of extreme obstacles to continue the management of the cartel with direct leadership of the organization in daily drug running operations. Guzman, however, utilized the monetary power of his organization to bribe jail guards and manipulate the prison system to his advantage.
“Since only a small percentage of state prisoners are there for marijuana offenses, how much would we be saving in criminal justice costs?”(Gitlow 2015) He is basically saying that some help is the same as no help. I hope the audience would view his opinions on this negatively so judges can stop giving shorter sentences to criminal who deserves longer ones for violent acts. Marijuana is legal to buy in the states of Washington and Colorado but there are still 48 states yet to jump on the bandwagon. Those that believe marijuana should be legalized feel it would alleviate our criminal justice system, overcrowding in jails, and save billions of taxpayer dollars. Illegal sales would not exist to such a high extent as they are right now.
The war on drugs policy created a mass hysteria on drug and placed an instrumental fear in society. Not to say drugs are not a problem, However, incarcerating a person for one time drug offenses for years did not create an answer. Throwing an addict in prison for a lifetime for possession charge has only increased the problem. It continues to turn out hardened criminal by the time they are released. Statistics and research will explain what the War on Drugs Legislation was as well as, clarify why it does not work.
Like Grendel from from Beowulf drugs can physically hurt people, but they also can cause an internal conflict, conflict like the fear and lament; that Grendel caused the kingdom of Herot. But like the poem Beowulf we have heroes in our societies that fight it everyday. Drugs they appear everywhere, from schools to city streets, and their path of destruction is a devastating one. A part of this path is the families that are constantly being broken up and ruined. From anything like Legal consequences to the drug user putting their addiction before their family.
Arrest Process (Kevin Michael O’Brian) One of the biggest and most strenuous problems our society faces today is the use and abuse of narcotics. Not only is this an epidemic, but it is one of the hardest things to prevent and regulate. The data shows that not only does drug use result in crime, but a staggering 17% of all state prisoners admitted to committing their crime to obtain drugs. You can see why this is a huge issue in today’s society. Not only are people stealing from their own family members in order to feed their addiction, but they are also wasting tax payer’s money by constantly sitting in prison for committing said crimes.
Meanwhile, in the present time, emigration pervades Mexico due to its weak and corrupt government, and the strong influence of Mexican drug cartels, which subsequently creates the illusion and assumption that all Mexicans are drug-smuggling criminals. Again, as stated many times before, this similarly happened during the industrial revolution and the “Gilded Age”, where again, due to the sudden flow of Irish immigrants because of “The Great Famine”, xenophobia of them began to infect American citizens, most likely
The Red Scare started right after the civil war was over. There had been many riots to accrue during the time of the red scare. In the term the red scare had been a form of lose to many successful people. It took at huge toll on the government as they tried to stop and contain the many job losses, but as the time went by people start to riot in the streets because the of the cuts from their jobs had really affected them. People were losing their lives and the government did all they could to try and stop it.
In the Rio Grande Valley, public corruption runs rampant. The border city of Mission is a hot spot for drug traffickers and has become an area of concern for the High Intensity Drug Trafficking Area Program, also known as HIDTA, since the 1990s. Every day drug runners, private drug dealers, and the continuous flow of illegal immigrants create an atmosphere of temptation for law enforcement agents. Unfortunately, the small town of Mission has witnessed federal, state, and local law enforcement officers drift toward the dark side, letting temptation cast a shadow over their morals and beliefs. Recently, Mission Police Department officer, Hector Mendez, has been the latest addition to the dozens of people who stepped away from their mission
Police Departments all over the country have created special task forces to oversee this crime. Pictures of young kids and teens are sold to pedophiles through child pornography web sites. While computers undoubtedly have simplified our lives in some respects, they have also created an avenue for widespread crime. From 2009 to 2011, there was a seventeen fold increase in computer attacks on American infrastructure. These attacks were initiated by criminal gangs, computer hackers and even foreign governments.
