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.
One of the studies, which is focused by Asanbe et al. (2012) and according to their theory, which basically focused upon the Methamphetamine and its impact in the society, it is found that as far as Methamphetamine and its significances in the criminal justice system and prison management is concerned, different controversies and problems seem to be glued together in the stated systems. As per the report in this study, Methamphetamine users are increasing by degrees and it drives its consumers crazy because of its character of powerful addictive and tonic drug. Moreover, it also shows the statistics in relation to caseload in the jurisdictional system. The statistics reveals that in a short span of time, Methamphetamine related criminal cases suddenly have increases the work for the lawyers and judges as many new Methamphetamine cases take place, which in turn piles up the illegitimate cases in the court. Also, it examines that the inevitability of handling these lawbreakers through the criminal justice system forces a weighty liability on the assets of public prosecutor, public supporters, high courts, probation subdivisions, community corrections programs, state correctional agencies, and public and private treatment facilities.
Jimmy McNulty is the character from The Wire that I choose to speak about. After brainstorming ideas on what I can talk about in my topic I was able to figure out what I want to speak about. The question I will discuss is “ Is McNulty’s hard headed way of thinking worth everything they accomplished even if the drug war cycle has not ended or ever will be?”. I came up with this question because I was I know this really affected my character. McNulty felt very guilty that Kima was in the hospital because of him; He was the one who convinced the Baltimore police and detectives to get their hands dirty in the case of The Wire.
The ill treatment innocent civilians and even prisoners far exceed those within their rights as a human. Torture and death have been ways to garner fear within those they hold power. Despite this, efforts to curb abuse have been carried by the governments and they “pledged to start a new program to eliminate torture” (Ahmed). There is a hope that human rights abuses will improve over time but it is up to the people and governments to take the stand against the
Through reading many publish case studies like the ones provided earlier, Joseph (2001) thinks that researchers need to publish more of their raw data instead of only providing summarized versions of their results. Withholding any kind of information in a study is definitely unethical in any field of research based science and taking steps to improve the availability of data is only going to be beneficial. In addition, there might be a more suitable control group alternative that is not being properly utilized in twin studies. Normally researchers use dizygotic twins as a point of comparison in the similarities found in monozygotic twins; however, there may be a reason to change. The replacement control group proposed is a completely biologically unrelated pair of strangers whose age, sex, ethnicity, socioeconomic status, cultural background, and appearance are similar (Joseph, 2001).
Don’t let it prevent you from pointing fingers at bullies. Calling bullies for what they are is a strong counter-measure against the perpetual abusive technique, and one you should practice often when you need to tackle bullying behavior. On the other hand, popular Hollywood footage can give us many ideas of why are we living in the world of bullying when we see its harmfuls ways and the wound it produces. Regardless of so much civilized progress, people are still ill-equipped for dealing with their wounds and often resort to devious use of power. There is always hope and I wouldn’t have been writing this book if I didn’t see a way through.
This is due to the fact that men are often pushed to bottle their emotions. Terrence Real, psychiatrist, reports that “Hidden depression drives several of the problems we think as typically male: physical illness, alcohol and drug abuse, domestic violence, failures in intimacy, self-sabotage in careers. We tend not to recognize depression in men because the disorder itself is seen as unmanly” (FIND PAGE). Real goes on to say that depression is a double edged sword for men - the femininity associated with expressing emotions and the shame of mental illness (FIND PAGE). This can create complications in numerous ways.
It’s so common that governments, in attempts to help, will only make the problems worse or cause new ones, while people are still trapped in a vicious cycle of addiction. It’s a hard call on weather or not it’s better to make drugs like Xanax harder to get, since it will turn adicts into dangerous criminals and in the process could kill them or others, and make it harder for people who need those drugs to live their daily lives. Although, a huge plus would be that reducing the availability of drugs could make it harder for new people to become addicted. It seems to me in this case there is no correct answer, and every idea that I can think of or that the government has tried will end in some form of friendly fire. In my opinion, the best course to take in order to help lessen the number of addictions is to one, increase education on the effects of drugs, and two, have a way of making sure people proscribed the drugs will use them safely.
Unfortunately, like every kind of addiction, a previously looked at picture is not enough because the viewer can not feel dopamine’s effect as much, so he must go and hunt for more stimuli. This, in turn, increases the levels of dopamine in the brain and as powerful arousal as the one experienced previously can be achieved. This is connected also with brain damage exactly in the frontal lobe - “the part of the brain that controls logical problem solving and decision making”. In other words, pornography can be comparable to junk food.
On the other hand, if it is assumed that the govern-ment has the authority to prohibit drugs,it is not enough to say that cer-tain drugs should be illegal because they're dangerous to individuals or society. It must be shown that they are dangerous. On the other hand government has to provide the maximum freedom it can with re-gards to health. And the health part may be handled with edu-cation and regulations. One free of choosing the drugs from a le-gal place without any fear of arrest will be able to try some drugs and find a path to his\her self.
I am in favor of the patriot ACT. I know many people think, it is kind of violation of the privacy, but the patriot ACT make the U.S. a better place to live. There are countries, which try to do some damage to the U.S., and they will do anything to accomplish it. The patriot ACT made it easier for the law enforcement whenever they needed to arrest someone, whether is a drug dealer, a terror organization or someone who tries to make some damages through technology. These acts can have huge impact on the people and the society, law enforcement should act faster than the enemies in order to get them before they get what they want.
Addressing this issue causes a huge debate due to stigmas. Many believe that any convicted criminal should be set away from society. This is due to the stigma that anyone convicted is a “delinquent” or is “crooked, evil, or a possible murderer.” But, it is quite naive to believe that prisons should be set separate from society. It is crucial that services are provided inside those walls to aid the inmates whom-with a few exceptions- will be released and it is our job and in our interest to ensure that they will not return to crime and be locked up yet again.
Terrorists have to use this control strategies to prevent themselves from threat and get to their goals (Friske & Taylor, 2008). They control themselves from making decision of what to say and how to avoid the crime relevant questions that they want to deny (Clemens et al, 2013). Terrorists are especially fear of the interrogator because they know the crime more than anyone else, and they are throated by the police (Granhag et al, 2009) This theory predicts that detainee would choose the following strategies to reach their goal and control for what they are going to say in the
I want to thank Mr Koll, my partner Kevin, and the opposition side of Kara and Khala for giving us this opportunity to debate such a great topic in front you guys today. First I want to clarify that this isn’t a black lives matter issue nor is this a blue lives matter issue. This is an issue that must not be seen on the screens of social media, but in the hands of the law. It is critical that the opposition realizes that the opinionated negative view of indicting an officer without a grand jury isn’t necessary, and it’s unjustful to the duties of a police officer.
Reinforced by research evidence, reasonable arguments for supporting the current law on illegal drugs are rarely offered. The clearest arguments are religiously based or moral views that the use of particular drugs is immoral; that people who use those drugs are corrupt and consequently, drugs should be banned and manufacturers, suppliers and users should be treated as criminals. Adjustment to drug laws has been advocated by a number of individuals and reform groups, however opponents announce that such reduction of laws, involving decriminalization and legalization, will eliminate the preventive effect and increase drug use and release much larger drug-related concerns into the community. A reasoning for legalization is that it would significantly reduce or even abolish drug trade inside the black market and criminal networks. Other arguments involve focusing responses within health instead of the police and the criminal justice system.
