Abstract This short report explains how influences from peers and parents about drinking and driving shape the views and behaviors of teenagers. Driving while intoxicated is risky enough as it is, but when you add new and unexperienced drivers to the mix, the situation gets even more dangerous. Certain genders and behaviors make it more likely for a teenager to drink and drive or to ride along with a drunk driver. Participants in the studies ranged from fifteen year olds to nineteen year olds from all across the United States. This research shows how easy a teenagers mind is changed by the people around them and the impact role models have.
In 2008 prosecutors publicly stated that the Ramsey family was clear from the suspects (chp 1 page 9). I believe there should be a dedicated team of individuals who specialize in these cases, that don’t give up as new technology and evidence arises. Concluding this paper, we have considered the JonBenet case that occurred in 1996 and how it was closed and reopened. Keeping in mind that a third of all homicide cases go unsolved, statistically this is a big number considering the number of people living in the U.S.A. We see how important it is to not compromise any evidence in a crime scene it could very well dictate the results of solving the case. Because mistakes caused by the officers, or investigators at a crime scene such as tampering with evidence, flaws in the legal system, and departments giving up on cases of up to a year many go

Stop and frisk has been a highly conversed topic within the general public within recent years. Many people think that these are just a way to profile possible offenders and treat them as guilty before they do anything wrong. Our book describes how that is not true because a stop and frisk must meet certain requirements in order to be valid. A major case that was held in regards to stop and frisk was Terry v. Ohio and this case determined that a police officer must meet two requirements in order for the stop to be valid. The first one is that either a crime has been committed or will be committed and the suspect is possibly armed and dangerous.
Police brutality is becoming a continuing problem in the United States, which needs to be solved. The police academies need to teach their candidates better methods on addressing stressful situations. There are many cases where the police have gone too far with the civilians. For example, Of all 1,575 officers involved in reported excessive force complaints, 897 (56.9%) were involved in cases of physical use of force complaints which include fist strikes, throws, chokeholds, baton strikes, and other physical attacks(Packman,1). These numbers need to change.
The effects of sexual or physical abuse can also last for a long time, especially as mentally, physically and emotionally underdeveloped as a child is. Some children can cope very well with very horrible situations while others can be very distressed by a minor incident. However, having to go through the court system shortly after the abuse occurred will surely take a toll on the child. Having the child relive the trauma multiple times by having them testify in court in front of their abuse, which is especially traumatic as in some countries such as the United States have a right to confront their accuser; and having them go through sometimes multiple interviews would create harmful short-term as well as long-term effects on the child. It

Racial profiling can cause multiple problems. Several law enforcement agencies have gone through expensive litigation over civil rights concerns. Police-citizen relations in those communities have been strained, making policing all the more challenging. Most importantly, racial profiling is unlikely to be an effective policing strategy as criminals can simply shift their activities outside the profile (e.g., if racial profiling begins with police stopping black males in their teens and twenties. The "cumulative impact of racial discrimination accounts for the special, way that blacks have of looking at and evaluating" their experiences in public encounters (Feagin, 1991:115).
Looking at the Consequences of Drunk Driving Drunk driving is becoming an increasingly large epidemic in the United States. Every day, 28 people in the United States die in motor vehicle crashes that involve an alcohol-impaired driver. This is one death every 51 minutes (Department of Transportation). Along with the amounts of death climbing to devastating numbers, injuries are another negative outcome of drunk driving. Raising awareness of this danger is an easy task, however convincing drivers to comply with the law of not driving while intoxicated is more difficult.
This makes it difficult for police to track serial killers and link them to the crimes. Thus, this often leads to higher crime rates among serial killers and places them in a different category. Thus, the nature vs. nurture argument continues to remain prevalent in the discussion regarding serial killers. Some scientists contend that humans are naturally violent and aggressive. Thus, some humans are born with certain genetic traits that make them psychologically unstable and impulsive.
