The drug testing would even the playing field for participants and create uniformity. The financial support is to help with basic amenities like food, shelter, and water for families; not drugs. These tests would help verify that taxpayer dollars are going towards families with no drug involvement and better futures. The programs don’t allow for the money to be spent on drugs, but drug involvement could lead to less jobs opportunities. Ideally the drug testing would find individuals positive for drugs and offer them rehabilitation programs.
Also hopefully by the offender not spending years in jail and doing things like community service they learn their lesson and will be less likely to commit another crime in the future compared to someone who spent years in jail. Overall I think that restorative justice would be a good idea for the United States as long as there is some regulation of it. I think this because it can help everyone who was involved and affected by the crime. Restorative justice can also help the offender to live a more normal life after and hopefully lead them in the right
I believe that all of us at some point doing wrongful behavior and breaking rules such as jaywalking. When reading this, I realize that I also use at least one of the techniques of neutralization to make me feel less guilty when doing any wrongful behavior. Besides, it makes me understand the usage of techniques of neutralization and realize on how important it is to take responsibility for our acts. I agree with the author’s conclusion that the continued use of neutralization and rationalization might weaken social bonds and reduce their need to use the techniques, over time. I think the more time you engage in doing deviant acts, the more ‘experienced’ you are, so you may received the label as deviant and because of that, you may not worried about what other people think about you anymore.
Racial profiling is a positive thing. Racial profiling is a practice used by law enforcement officials to target individuals and groups of people who are suspicious of crimes based on their ethnicity. Racial profiling should be allowed for the police to use because it is easier for them to track down criminals, to prevent crimes from happening and to create a safer place. Racial profiling should be allowed for the police to use because it is easier to prevent crimes from happening. Judging someone based on the way they look is never good but in this case it is because a suspicious looking black man could be taken in by the police for questioning on gang violence and that would help prevent some crimes.
The safety of the community is crucial and attempting to deam stop and frisk as unconstitutional limits law enforcement. There is much controversy on how it can target a certain group or race but I believe the goal of any police is to deter crime when implementing stop and frisk. I believe stop and frisk can help reduce crimes and eliminate potential crime in a city, neighborhood, or street. Boyette, C., & Martinez, M. (2013). Court blocks ruling against NYPD's stop-and-frisk policy.
We believe that everyone is innocent until proven guilty. Once proven guilty, a person should receive punishment. This is the purpose of the justice system. The whole rule of double jeopardy defies this, not bringing justice to those who deserve it as it forbids for the accused to be tried again. It will be more beneficial to society as a whole if we abolish double jeopardy, to correct the mistakes of the justice system and essential for progression.
They want to make sure when punishing an immoral act, there is benefit to society. Shaw says this because utilitarianism does give established laws and reasoning behind them. Shaw also says that Utilitarians say that our system of punishment as it functions, succeeds in rehabilitating many convicts and discourages them from future mistakes. his reasons for saying this. I think that Utilitarians favor exploring the alternatives because doing something to someone, even a criminal, who has committed a heinous crime, morally wrong, and two wrongs do not make a right, it is setting the wrong view for society.
The most common type is retribution. Retribution is when you do something bad, and it is said something bad will happen to you in return. Retribution is an example of dicterans, dicterans is the idea of knowing there is a consequence to your actions, avoiding you to not participate in an inappropriate act or behavior. Due to this the government has strict law and rules explaining the cosequences if they are violated. Rehabilitation is also a program which helps one become an ideal human being in the society.
The supposition is that by knowing a sex offender resides in your community, the community can take steps to prevent being victimised. One of the reasons that communities want to know where sex offenders reside is that it may assist the community to “feel better”, however there is no empirical evidence that public safety is actually increased, and if anything, community notification is more likely to instil fear in
Malloy in 1982, suggested that a salary increment for the police officers would encourage them to stop taking bribes, also suggested that unenforceable laws to be eliminated, this would help the police officers not to feel too much pressure in enforcing them. Police officers should take integrity rests from time to time; this would test if the officer will make honest choices when faced by a situation. This tests would lead to opening of investigations and uprooting corrupt and dishonest officers. Internal affairs model- this would help reduce corruption by investigating the officers from the department and resolve it internally from the
