How they do it is they count all the campaign donations, fundraisers, gifts, concerts, cruises, private golf outings, etc. as ways of “buying access” to the congressman. That way they can say it’s not bribery just buying access to get the chance to lobby their bill/law. Often times the lobbying groups will write the laws themselves in entirety that Senators/Representatives present later to Congress. It is hard to prove a congressman actually voted based on gifts from lobbyists.
With all the changes and funding the French Quarter Task Force went from a privately funded program ran by Torres over to the New Orleans Police Department. Torres says he’s not happy the idea he came up with being ran by the city. Torres ran the French Quarter Task Force with a certain intensity that reminded people how of a businessman might run a police department. He watched calls come in on the mobile app and tracked how long it took officers to arrive on scene.
I would say that the author did a good job on writing the body paragraphs. For example, she says, “At colleges across America, especially at state universities, credit card companies have taken a page out of the student organizations’ playbook and table alongside the best of them. But the card companies have a leg up on the student groups: swag, and lots of it. In exchange for filling out a credit card application, students can get free stuff ranging from T-shirts to mugs and pizzas.” As you can see, it talks about credit cards and products which were two of the main things that were going to be discussed.
Williamsburg: Who Should Get The Commemorative Coin? Colonial times are extremely important to current generations, the ones after us, and before. They tell us about how people lived in different classes, how things worked, and what conflict there was, and what better way to learn about it than Colonial Williamsburg? Out of these four wonderful buildings the Capitol, the Governors Palace, the Magazine, and the Bruton Parish Church laws, but also broke them and that was important to the government, the important documents were passed there or even made there and most of them still are used today, and how laws were made and what laws there were in colonial times.
La Greta, I really enjoyed reading your post as I have been a part of such programs since I began my career as a police officer 18 years ago. I started by conducting parole checks on violent offenders and quickly learned how little they were prepared to return to society. You are very correct in that an offender’s re-entry starts the minute they begin their sentence. This is going to require the cooperation and collaboration of the prison system, probation and parole, law enforcement, prosecutors, social services and public housing. The money is out there in the form of federal grants and it just takes a little work to find them on the internet.
Firstly, I was assigned to the ROIC in 2006 where I learned the basics of Intelligence Led Policing and the dissemination of sensitive data. At that time, in the early days of the ROIC, I utilized the SIMMs system to disseminate intelligence data to detectives in the field. Secondly, on the Special Projects side of our unit, we have access to all NJSP databases and are constantly tasked with producing reports from those databases. These reports can cover a range of topics from Use of Force analysis, racial profiling, Misconduct, etc. These types of reports can be considered "intelligence" as it relates to the inner workings of the NJSP and mitigating risk.
Article III of the United States Constitution delineates the role of our Judicial Branch of Government to afford justice to all people. Indeed, ”To the letter of the law” leaves many in the legal system scratching their heads over their obligations to translate, as well as, deliver justice. Unfortunately, as society evolves, the parameters of any written laws may be construed differently and our judicial system is put to task in arbitrating the rights and restrictions of citizens. One such case, McDonald v. Chicago, captivated the nation in 2010 regarding the 2nd Amendment to the constitution. Clearly stated, the 2nd Amendment reads, “A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed”.
Through the horrible torture and humiliation that the victims endured at Abu Ghraib, Americans expressed their anger towards the Muslim race through abuse and torture. As ] we sit comfortable in our homes watching TV, playing video games, relaxing, there are people who are having severe pain inflicted upon them in prisons in the Middle East, one of the worst of these prisons being Abu Ghraib. Abu Ghraib is a prison that is located on 280 acres of land twenty miles west of Baghdad that was shut down in April of 2014 (CNN). The CIA committed many acts of human rights violations in Abu Ghraib that included very inhuman methods of torture. Prior to 2003 the prison was used for detention purposes and did not have the level of inhuman acts going on as it did after 2003 till its close date.
George Washington owned several books and articles that discussed the abolishment of slavery which were all located in his personal library. Many pieces in the collection had been given to him as gifts, meaning there were personal relationships between Washington and the authors, many of which being from across the Atlantic world. These texts are one of the only few clues available to historians when researching Washington’s view on abolition and the dialogue between authors. Collecting pieces of evidence in Washington’s texts is how François Furstenberg, history professor and author of Atlantic Slavery, Atlantic Freedom: George Washington, Slavery, and Transatlantic Abolitionist Network, presented this research article.
Jury Duty Jury duty is a very important obligation that every citizen of the United States has bestowed upon them. It is not only a responsibility, but a privilege to be able to serve on a jury. Jury duty is the most direct way to participate in the democracy and the legal system in the United States. Also, as was stated in the video that we watched in class, and then echoed by the person that I interviewed, it is important for the jury to consist of many different people with different backgrounds, and it is important that everyone in the community gets involved with the jury process.
At the end of the paper I will discuss polices that would help increase the number of patients that receive help both inside the prison or even other criminals that may not be incarcerated but under other forms of supervision. I think that doing my senior paper on mental health in prisons have many advantages, first of all, there is a lot of new information and statistics coming out all the time. I think that it is also a very important topic because a lot of people in the world suffer from some kind of mental illness. The down side of this topic is that, while there is a lot of information about mental illness, it was a little hard to find about mental illness inside
The voice in the paper is unbiased, and the purpose of the paper is to educate on the consequences of cyberbullying. I felt like this source was a good addition to my paper since it discussed a wide variety of issues that cyberbullying causes. I had several questions before starting my paper, and this source was detailed in answering some of those questions, such as describing state laws associated with the problem of cyberbullying. This source also covered mental health consequences to both the victim and the aggressors. I found this source in the Bethel Library.
Lucky for this the government laid off the terrorist thing, the government still can read your text and see your pictures, all of toughs app’s ya’ll have, the internet has them and so does the government. Our phones have codes on them so that the government can track you down right to the house that you sent that
In recent decades, there has been a trend developing in America towards the privatization of America’s prisons. Independent companies have contracted, built and staffed prisons in several different states instead of having the government in control of these facilities. There is still much uncertainty, however, if private prisons will be able to succeed. Some companies have failed while others cling to average revenues. Some people believe that these measures will save taxpayers money while other are afraid that private prisons have no real interest in rehabilitating prisoners.
Hi I agree with your cost assessment involving jailed inmates, but not as most people imagine prison cost. My concern is with the private corporations that profit from jailing US citizens, it is business model aimed at legally embezzling American taxpayer dollars, these corporations deploy few ethics in their day to day business practice. Being only concerned with keeping their facility at, or near capacity. Consequently, unsavory governing officials scramble to meet contractual “lockup quotas.” Taxpayers pay for any empty beds should crime rates fall under quota.
