Police Brutality is an ongoing problem and existent concern in the United States and should be resolved immediately. Law enforcement must function as an element that consists of organized and civilized officers. The presence of police brutality is becoming more of an issue as society grows. The problem posed by the illegal exercise of police power is an ongoing reality for individuals of a disfavored race, class, or sexual orientation. Police brutality must be stopped so that police do not forget who they are serving not themselves, but the public.
This maddest bring’s a lot of pain to families that have lost loved ones to gun violence. We as people are not perfect but killing somebody is not the way in life to make peace with our enemy. Let us take time as people to stop killing and make peace because when judgement day comes a lot of people that have killed somebody and not ask for forgiveness will go to hell. Black on black crime has been a problem since the early 70’s but was not as bad as it is today. Black on black crime has been a big deal because young people are dying everyday because somebody the same age has a gun not to protect but to kill another person because they might not be as good as them or they did something to them that was wrong so they seek revenge on that person.
But respectfully, law enforcement’s duty is to protect themselves as well as the citizens. Sometimes, when using a less deadly force, fighting while trying to subdue a suspect may occur and could potentially lead to what some innocent bystanders call police brutality. Depending on the situation, police officers should know when to use force, and if it comes down to excessive force, then they will have to answer for their actions. Police brutality has no set rules or bindings in state policies. In fact, police brutality is wrong and its considered to be misconduct on behalf of the law enforcement
They are just like an average us if we brutally hurt someone we would surely have charges pressed against us what we did. “justice system designed to insulate police actions resulting in death” (Ali, Samee, Sherman para. one). In addition, the system is protecting them even though it may be obvious that they did the crime. “officers who shot Miller were cleared of criminal wrongdoing by the local District Attorney but were fired by the police chief “( “Police” para.
The Majority of the court 's decision includes McLachlin C.J. and Bastarache, Deschamps, Abella, Charron and Rothstein JJ. The court had to decide in this case whether the seriousness of an offence or knowing that one might be a threat to public safety can be a justification to stop anyone without having solid evidence against them. The court stated that both Mr. Clayton and Mr. Farmer were guilty of carrying concealed weapons in a public place. The police had the right to search them even though their car didn’t match the description described by the 911 caller because the officers have to be consistent with their duty towards public safety and act in accordance to the seriousness of the
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.
It will act as a deterrent to anyone who posses the idea to pose a threat to the society. In other words, it discourages delinquency posed by youngsters, and keeps dangerous types of criminals such as serial killers or murderers away from other residents. In conclusion, vocational training and education should be put into consideration as a replacement for imprisoned punishment in tomorrow’s
I’d help them deal with the bully and help them speak up to him/her. In a case when I’m not around and I’m busy, I’d give them steps to deal with the problem. I would first tell them to first ignore the bully. If that doesn’t work, I’d tell them next to be brave and to stand up to the bully, letting them know that he/she isn’t alone. I’d also tell them not to bully back because that would make everything worse, and he/she would also become a bully.
Has the news influenced people to think a certain way about police officers? In the past two years news headlines talk about a topic called police brutality. People nowadays see police more of a threat than help. This is because many police officers have been charged with assault and murder, which is what is known as police brutality. When people think of police brutality they think of a officers attacking a civilian for no reason.
Reducing Police Corruption In 1990, Metz, suggested several ways which can encourage reduce officers misconduct for example, a. Provide a written code of ethics-these are polices written to guide the police to make ethical choices when situations arise. b. Provide training in law enforcement ethics- these trainings would help the police officers what is expected of them. 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.
As routine officers arrive on scene to carry out the purpose of the police department by providing peace, safety, and to maintain order emotions, rights and authority can disrupt judgment. In the case of Oscar Grant one officers actions were quickly misunderstood because another unarmed person would be killed by a police officer. In my opinion the officer failed to carry out the purpose of the police department because officers are expected to not do unnecessary harm but protect and serve. With new policy educating the public and police officers on how to commutate and react to one another could help decrease these types of actions. Including new policy that could help prevent this action of police brutality against unarmed individuals by increasing police training on de-escalating situations verbally before becoming physically aggressive.
However, the public will deem the search excessive use of force on the accused performed by the RCMP officer. This search would increase public outrage regarding excessive use of police powers as they believe the search could have performed in a less intrusive mean. Furthermore, the “throat hold” should not be performed on anyone especially females as it can result in health complications (Atherley & Hickman, 2014). However, it is necessary to note that the “throat hold” is a common practice used by the RCMP drug squad to prevent drug traffickers from destroying evidence. This practice is not illegal as it is used to prevent the swallowing of drugs that may be in the accused mouth that will aid in substantiating the charge.
“As government, we don’t protect crimes but we have to ensure the lives of people are defended. Mob justice is never allowed and the police did the right thing. The residents should come with the evidence so that they help us prosecute them. As much as they were rescued from the site, we need more evidence,” he
The change is needed to make our law enforcement safer to all people. This starts with proper training, and elimination of officers who are undoubtedly racist, have a record of fault in this category. The heads of police and government must monitor the officers and their actions, this will do a better job of making sure the officers are doing their job, and keeping the public safe. Without law enforcement, the U.S. would not be safe and the public would run wild. The police force must ensure the safety of the people, this can only happen if the infrastructure of law enforcement is safe itself for the
The last power I’m going to talk about is how the police have codes to protect them against any accusations that the suspects make. The first example of this would be the tape recording of proceedings that the police use when they conduct interviews when with a suspect. There are mainly two reasons why the police use tape recordings in interviews with suspects. The first reason is because it shows that the police are doing the interview right and are following procedures just like they are supposed to. Tape recordings are to make sure that the police aren’t threatening the suspect or doing anything they shouldn’t be doing, so if the suspect accuses them of doing so, the police will have proof that what the suspect is saying isn’t the true.
