Throughout history, disputes and tensions between law enforcement officials and communities of minorities have endured hostility and violence between each other. Racial profiling has become a “hot topic” for researchers as well as for politicians and by now it is likely that most citizens are at least aware of the common accusations of racial bias pitted against law enforcement (Cochran & Warren, 2013). Communities of color are being discriminated against and racially profiled by white police officers for any suspicion of criminal activities. It has been widely assumed by policy makers and citizens alike that allegations of racial profiling are mostly associated with the policing practices of white officers and their treatment of racial and ethnic minorities (Cochran & Warren, 2013). Also, individuals of minority descent will certainly recognize that they are being racially profiled during a stop that is being conducted by a white police officer.
With the state socializing the costs of prison education, New York’s average per-prisoner expenses would increase. Some prisoners who wouldn’t otherwise enter a program (or who might have been declined by a private program seeking to minimize waste) would sign up for courses and then drop out. The second reason Cuomo’s shift should be viewed positively is that it places a spotlight on private charity.It’s time to look at serious alternatives to publicly funded prisoner education. The recent history of post-secondary prison education reveals a mix of public and private support. From 1972-1994, prisoners were eligible for federal Pell grants.
Having the ability to have a program in every prison could be a great business. Not only could a state or country benefit by teaching their criminals but this could also help them become successful after they serve their time. This could also be beneficial in the long run to communities, many individuals who has a parent in a prison system has a more likely hood to make bad decisions and end up incarcerated themselves then those who do not have parents incarcerated. This is a change that could reshape the business and society relationships. If the possibility of an education program could be in place in every prison or in major prisons this could strengthen communities, rise low income populations and educate more people.
I do believe those who took part deserve to be punished too, just not as severely. This leaves us wondering: are the wrong people going to jail? To begin with, there has been a massive increase in the amount of people being jailed for joint enterprise. Around 1,800 people have been charged with homicide under the controversial, legal principal of joint enterprise in the past 8 years. As well as this, between 2005 and 2013 there were 1,853 people prosecuted in England and Wales for homicide in a charge that involved more than 4 people.
Under his administration that lasted from 2006 to 2012 its estimated by analyst that around 60.000 people had been killed, but it is estimated that around 120.000 people had been killed by the year of 2013 including 27.000 people missing and unofficial deaths. This is the outcome of Mexico’s intervenient in the drugs. All these deaths come from rebels, riots and wars on the streets and kidnapping, which is a big problem in Mexico. Mexico is rated as one of the highest rated kidnapping countries in the world. They are ranked 8 with over 70 abductions each month, this can also be looked on as a big reason of the high death numbers in
Chapter 8: What’s Next?? Police corruption isn’t a nuance of media induced concerns. Instead it is a major issue in police departments across the world. Police corruption is a major waste of resources, financial resources, creates a modern day mockery of law enforcement in general and undermines the foundations on which police/security is designed to employ. Why?
This can be a very touchy subject to talk about since there are so many viewpoints on police brutality and corruption, but there are some officers who are getting away with abusing their power. Police corruption can be used in many different ways, but the most common ways are where the police either abuse their contracts as officers to gain power for themselves in the department or for personal gain, like bribery or officers using the evidence taken for themselves. Extortion is also a problem in the system where officers use their power to threaten someone in order to get ownership of property or money. In one case, Enfield officer Matthew Worden was accused of using excessive force, meaning that while the suspects
The Metropolitan Toronto Police Force defines bias crime or, hate crime as being a “criminal offence committed against a person or property that is based solely upon the victim's race, religion, nationality, ethnic origin, sexual orientation, gender or disability” (Canada.ca, 2015). Unfortunately, criminal activity motivated by bias, prejudice and ultimately, hatred has been perpetrated by mankind and the government throughout many critical instances of history. During the past, many courageous individuals engaged in numerous uprisings and demonstrations in protest of the discriminatory acts which violate one’s civil rights as a human being. These heroic figures of precedent eras desired to make changes which would benefit people who faced
Although we hope our Police force will use their powers for good, but sometimes police misconduct can occur. Often, the police are under great pressure to act as quick as possible, espcially in a murder case and if the murder victime is white, a child, police officer, or prominent. For example, In the 1990’s the case of Rodney King, that not only shows a racist issue within the criminal justice system, but also the issue with abuse from police officers, but changed the country’s views on the LA police force. Twenty- Seven years ago,Rodney King was brutally beaten by Los Angeles police officers. King was intoxicated while driving and the police had caught him speeding, and initally he tried running away from the police, only to be followed by multiple police and a helicopter.
Ultimately, colleges put higher education on a pedestal, which in turn makes job requirements steeper. This raises the price of supposed “basic” education, while not increasing pay for jobs. With a focus on specialized education for low-paying jobs, and consequently less income with more debt, colleges cause long-term financial problems, showing a complete disregard for the actual well-being of the student and their future, which is why students should examine other possibilities to secure their
