Gamblers may steal money or resort to illegal means to gain it to feed their addiction. Gamblers need money therefore gamblers will ignore important things to receive money. Stealing and selling possessions who the person does not own is a bad habit and could land gamblers in jail. Crime rate has also risen by crimes in a community. Addictiveness is also a crucial part in the negative effects that casino gambling cause.
Corruption are include giving or accepting bribes or inappropriate presents, double dealing, under-the-table transactions, manipulating elections, diverting funds, laundering money and defrauding investors. Payoffs and kickbacks were excessive in the police department after Frank Serpico entered the New York police force in 1960, especially that which involves taking payoffs from gambling and drug dealing organizations. When he refused to take the bribes, the fellow officers saw him as potential danger and assigned him to another precinct. Serpico had tries to appeal the corruption to his department superior but gets nowhere. His campaign and the resulting complications and harassment within the department bring a negative impact on his mental health.
Immigrants are abducted and taken to American to be old every day. This shows that prostitution leads to human trafficking. I think this is sad because women should not be the ones who get in trouble and deported for something they could not control. They were also taken from their homes and moved across the world to be abused and taken advantage of. The immigrants would also be fined and could serve jail time for this even if it was not their
The gangs increase in numbers which means an increase in government problems. People will smoke in private places, ignoring the ban, these people are hard to monitor. People who do not smoke are unlikely to tell on smokers, in case they get in trouble with big gangs or even corrupt officers. If smoking is banned because it is harmful, then fast-food and even cars should be banned because they are also life threatening to human life as
Many of those that are involved are either abducted or voluntarily join these cartels. It is however not possible to know all the sources and even if you deal with one another will have cropped up. This kind of crime involves dangerous criminals who can kill at will. The money that these businesses generate is capable of corrupting even children with good morals, jobs and even skills. Communities are afraid of even educating their children in public since such an act can lead to death when these cartels kill them.
These crashes injure or even kill teens and others on the road. Teen drunk driving crashes wouldn’t be as common if it wasn’t for parents providing alcohol for their teens. Which is why they need to stop to prevent these accidents. Alcohol, no matter who’s drinking, can alter a person’s health. “Mounting research suggests that alcohol causes more damage to the developing brains of teenagers than was previously thought, injuring them significantly more than it does adult brains” (Butler n.p).
Since drinking was illegal under the 18th Amendment, those who continued to drink were considered criminals since they were breaking the law. Since the 18th Amendment was repealed by the 21st Amendment, those people are now regular citizens, thus making the average crime rate go down (Grover). Organized crime also became less powerful since people could buy alcohol themselves now instead of from the gangs. During prohibition, people who drank did not pay taxes on the intoxicating substances since they were buying it illegally. After the 21st Amendment was passed, the government put a large tax on alcohol and it helped balance out the economy during the Great Depression (Grover).
They have people who look out for them and they are feared by so many that they get their way more often than not. In movies; gangsters have no mercy. The police back then also broke the prohibition laws and sometimes protected the gangsters and sometimes were overall corrupt. Also in the movie The Untouchables, the gangsters are morally the ‘bad guys’ but they are the people who get riches and luxury opposed to a cop abiding by the law who lives in a small apartment; that shows a contrast in which sometimes the right thing is not the thing that can make you successful and happy. For example; this quote explains how Americans are always in need of a rebel, “The gangster film was in some ways the logical progression from the Western: an urban version of men with guns who grapple with lawlessness, with dangerous dark streets the equivalent of the wild frontier,” (Gangster movies pdf).
The youth was tired of being help up to sexist and illogical standards from the generations before and the government. They felt that their freedom was being suppressed by the government. The government puts several bans on drugs and made censorship a more widespread regulation. The new generation wanted to be as free as possible and the government and social norms stopped them from that. Thus, resulted in a brand-new generation of a rebellious minority.
Fines for Homeless Did you know that over 100 cities in the U.S. have made homeless everyday things illegal? For example, homeless have been being fined for sleeping and living on the streets. In addition homeless are expected to pay these fines in a certain amount of time or they can get into serious trouble and possibly even go to jail. Also when the police start fining the homeless it causes a negative relationship to form and homeless start not trusting the police. Lastly, shelters can be either too full or too dangerous for people, and if living in cars and streets is illegal there is no place for homeless to live.
