“It is up to all of us to ensure victims of sexual violence are not left to face these trials alone. Too often, survivors suffer in silence, fearing retribution, lack of support, or that the criminal justice systems will fail to bring the perpetrator to justice. We must do more to raise awareness about the realities of sexual assault; confront and change insensitive attitude wherever they persist; enhance training and education in the criminal justice system; and explain access to critical health, legal, and protection services for survivors.” (“Presidential Proclamation.”). Sexual assault has always been a very hush-hush topic in society.
They all have a common issue that they have to deal with in one way or another. As far as law enforcement and psychology, safety issues may be a problem. Psychologists can consult on interrogations with suspects from different countries. Misunderstanding of the culture or behavior could have a negative impact on the case and could possibly place someone in harm’s way. To eliminate this from happening, there are guidelines such as Ethical Standard 2.01(b), Boundaries of Competence for psychologists to
I don’t really like that feeling but I understand that this type of questioning is used to get useful information from the client in order to provided effect services and appropriate treatment. The video provided demonstrates of how to introduce in ASI. I like how the counselor has a chance to explain what the ASI is and how it would be used.
Essentially, I am interested in obtaining a Master’s in Forensic Psychology, because I think it is necessary in all aspects of life to understand and examine our actions. I believe society has reached a point in which we must take a hard look at our criminal justice system, including law enforcement training and response. I am particularly interested in first responder psychology, and how the first responder approaches situations with victims and offenders. The Master’s in Forensic Psychology degree would give me the education and tools necessary to assist in criminal justice
Life Over the years minors are being sentenced as adults and sent to adult prisons, however they should be juveniles should be tried as adults because they committed adult like crimes and they need to be punished for it and spend the rest of their life behind bars just as the saying goes “you commit the crime now you do the time. Minors should be charged as adults based on the crime they commit.minors should not be tried as adults because of their size and will not fit in with adult inmates.if a minor takes another person 's life they owe that person family their life.minors should go to adult prisons so it can sink in there little brains what they have done.minors who take a life should be
The juvenile justice system in New Orleans is very complicated . Many unfair situations occur every day, the system is set up for juveniles to fail. The justice system for juveniles needs to be changed because they are put on trials as adults, they do not get the proper education that they need and it leads them to becoming real criminals. How is the juvenile “justice” system really justice towards the juveniles? Juveniles in the justice system need an alternative to incarceration because incarceration has been proven to increase criminal activity instead of providing a rehabilitation system for the juveniles.
The opportunity for a one-time juvenile delinquent to have their record expunged would probably come at the end of a chapter in their life that they would like to forget. At one time or another in our childhood, we did some things that we were not proud of and would want to forget. For the most part, we did it out of immaturity or simply not considering the consequences of our actions. I have come across a lot of juveniles in my life and even some adults were the only thing that separates my story from their story, is one or two bad decisions. I have come across criminals who have had similar or better childhoods than myself.
Introduction We have 15 and 16 year olds not able to drive cars, yet we will classify them as adults and lock them away in prison for life without parole. New aged teens have brains that are growing and developing constantly. In fact, in adolescence the brain does a lot of pruning, or rather throwing out information that is not being exercised, which consequently loses brain tissue in the areas that control impulses, self-control and risk-taking. Even with this considered, teens are given no mercy and will be locked away before they even finish puberty. However, many see certain crimes too punishable and do not wish to coddle a kid and let them get away with things such as murder.
I got to see a side of the criminal justice system that I have never seen before. After writing multiple papers on the War on Drugs, I am completely aware of the injustices it entails. Federal lawmakers impact lower-level, nonviolent drug defendants with their enactment of mandatory minimum sentencing guidelines, even though they are attempting to target high-level distributors. Incarceration of these people destroys their lives because a criminal conviction makes it harder to live a productive life as you are not eligible for certain jobs, loans, etc. All things considered, my experience at the King County Drug Diversion Court opened my eyes to some of the changes occurring in our justice system in regards to the War on Drugs.
Certain states have banishment/imprisonment and the death penalty, and several have minor punishments. The job of law enforcement is to guarantee that citizens obey the law. Lots of people are scared of penalty and without punishments, no one would obey the rules and laws. People are used to being told what to do with their bodies, this means no sex before marriage and no abortion. There is not equal justice for teenagers if they love each other they legally still cannot have sex, or the male will face criminal charges if the girl gets pregnant.
There are so many mentally ill people in correctional facilities because most families do not know how to help their loves ones who suffer from a mental illness, so the call the police for help. Majority of the police officers do not know what to do or how to handle people with a mental illness disease. Police officers who are not trained to deal with the mentally ill often do not recognize that person is ill. Some police officers do not recognize if the individual should or not go to jail or a treatment center or medical facility. The impact of law enforcement and the judicial system dealing with people with a mental illness is to assist the inmates with the help they need.
I think some of the drug laws that are enforced are ridiculous, for instance in the move that we watched in class stated that people are receiving mandatory life sentences. In someone cases because of the drug laws a person can’t get below a 20year sentencing. I agree with you, the system is not fair at all. If you are caught with drugs, no matter the form or type the rules need to be the same for everyone. I think that goes back to the war on drugs, and how because this was not happening it became a drug war (destruction of human life).
Domestic Violence has become an issue that has lacked the attention of the public that needs fixing. Both of the articles demonstrate the obstacles that are presented in domestic violence cases. The image gives the awareness of the life threatening they live through, and have difficulties looking for help. Many people are unaware or underestimate the obstacles and difficulties that are presented in domestic violence, but a closer look will illuminate these issues that require action to be taken.
This is a very harsh punishment especially for someone who did not commit a murder crime. Many people in prison that has commited a murder crime or second degree murder and is offer life with parole, which is not fair. Committing a crime does deserve some type of punishment but punishing a young child for life in prison is not fair. Yes, the child should be punished for the crime they committed but it should not be a curel punishment, but a reasonable punishment. Also, by a child being in prison at a young age will reduces the child from graduating high school or even college.
Public Sex Offender Registers: The Concept of Community Notification Community notification laws authorise the public disclosure of a convicted sex offender’s information, (such as their name, address, offending history, car registration etc.) to anyone who has access to the Internet. Community notification should not be confused with basic registration of sex offenders, because register records are usually not made public. However a number of commentators have suggested that merely registering sex offenders for use by law enforcement agencies is not enough, it is necessary to have the information available to the public. Cases which have attracted media frenzies, usually sexual assaults and murders involving children, have served to push
