One call could have saved a life Screaming to the top of her lungs, crying in pain, and for help was not enough for bystanders around to call attention to. Bystanders, make a difference in any situation and can help to potentially save a life. Screaming in the middle is not something normal that is heard. In “37 Who Saw Murder Didn’t Call Police” written by Martin Gansberg, the author focused on the death of Kitty Genovese that could have been avoided. The author believes that bystander’s actions were significant because when someone is screaming the first instinct should be to call attention to it, the right thing to do is help, it could have saved Kitty Genovese’s life.
For modern police officers this an important principle, this is not always followed and not following this principle causes many unnecessary tragedies and conflicts. This principle should be used by the general public as well, in case of an incident, to only use self-defense if absolutely necessary. The seventh principle of peel is a really important for everyone to remember. This principal helps people understand that there is not much difference between the public and officers. The principal explains that the police are the public and the public are the police, the only difference is that police are payed and make it their full-time duty for modern police officers and public this is important for people to remember because of big divide between the
Some safeguards around the world include the patient being a mentally healthy adult, two physicians must agree on the diagnosis and must inform the patient of all options and if the patient still agrees to the assisted suicide then a mandatory waiting period ensues (Pope). After the waiting period the patient makes three requests, two oral and one written, and they can rescind the request at any time but if they proceed the patient must administer the lethal medication themselves. These safeguards are precautions to ensure that assisted suicide is done as safely and legally as possible (“Euthanasia and Assisted
Sandy Banks is bothered by the injustice of police officers towards possible innocent victims. Because it seems like if officers rely on shooting at people as their safest option, Banks demands better training to help solve this issue. Police officers being caught on camera doesn 't changes the fact that the victim will become wounded, or pass away, yet, in most cases officers are not held accountable for the insensible act. In her article, "Horrific videos aren 't solving police shootings, but better training might" Banks asks for better training for police officers, as she developed strong pathos with details, great logos with logical solutions and consequences, but a weak ethos by not mentioning her credentials and the other side of the story.
It investigated whether two telephone interventions in addition to treatment as usual during one to twelve months after a suicide attempts had any impact on treatment attendance and thereby suicidal behavior and psychosocial functioning (Cedereke & Öjehagen 2002). This secondary analysis was conducted because suicide is a very broad topic. This is something that has to be interpreted to fit the researchers needs of his or her
The Protection from Domestic Violence Act (PDVA), was enacted in May 1997 and proclaimed in March 1998. The objective of this legislation is to provide protection to spouse victims of domestic violence. The Protection from Domestic Violence act was amended in 2004 to broaden the scope of the Domestic Violence Act, in particular to cover all cases of domestic violence (physical, sexual, moral, against a spouse or his/her children) committed by persons living under the same roof, increase time limits of protection order and penalties and to provide counselling services. However, there is deterrence in the policies implemented because it does not fully help the victims as it is required to do. Moreover not all cases are reported, many victims are still enduring the atrocities of their abuser.
The advantages of community oriented policing over problem oriented policing is the public relation between the citizens and the officers. This helps reduce the fear in the community of whereas problem oriented policing, there is no little to no presence of officers until the crime has been committed. The only major disadvantage to community oriented policing is when the community involvement is minimum to no involvement. Without the help of the community COP is non effective. No matter which strategy police tries to implement in their community they have to realize that just because a certain strategy works in one neighborhood doesn’t necessarily mean it’s going to work in every
The argument is not if racism exist within law enforcement because there are statistics to prove there is some form of it present in some magnitude, but the argument is whether or not racism and racial profiling is being taught at the departmental level and therefore creating such a rift between police officers and citizens within the community. When proper training replaces unethical behavior, police officers benefit from this training and are better prepared out on the streets making split second
Miranda cautions are a high point of dispute in the law enforcement scene. There are many misunderstandings as to when "Miranda" applies. First, I explain about Miranda rights to their family because it’s important to know these basics. If we aren’t in police care then we don’t have to give them Miranda warnings. We mention all the matter in front of boy’s family and asked the officer that when police officers question a suspect in custody without first giving the Miranda warning, any statement or confession made is supposed to be instinctive, and cannot be used against the suspicious in any criminal case.
My Thesis Statement: People think the policemen are against us and research shows that it is the opposite and only few policemen don’t play on the rules Al-Sarraf, Ahmad. The Honorable Policeman. Kuwait Times, May 2017. In this news article, the author is trying to prove that police force is there to help all citizens in any situation as it is their sole duty. But, some rules apply to the police, as they cannot leave their vehicle unintended.
However, it would not be fair to the parties involved and not appropriate for this paper. Instead, police departments can avoid litigation if they change their policies and procedures to adopt the ADA into CIT training, which CIT does, and have all field officers complete CIT training. CIT training should include wrongful arrest theory and reasonable accommodations theory. Wrongful arrest liability may be avoided if police officers routinely ask “are you disabled or have mental illness” questions or have some means to communicate those questions. Minus exigent circumstances, reasonable accommodations should be made for people with a serious mental illness.

You should call 911 or have someone else call it. If there is another person present, then one of you can call 911 while the other one administers CPR. Sudden cardiac arrest can result in death if it is not treated within a few minutes. If a person is not breathing and does not have a pulse, then you will need to use an AED. You do CPR for two minutes if there is no AED available.
Mental health courts handle people with mental illness who have been charged of a crime. Mental health court is defined as “a specialized court docket for certain defendants with mental illnesses” where the individual’s mental health is first evaluated (Bureau of Justice Assistance, 2008, p.4). Then, judicial staff and mental health professionals decide a treatment plan for the person (Bureau of Justice Assistance, 2008). Mental health court is an acceptable system because it allows people with mental illnesses to be treated differently than in a traditional court system. In 1999, a mental health court was established to therapeutically manage mentally ill people accused of a crime (King County TV, 2010).
In the article, “How Police Training Contributes to Avoidable Deaths” author Seth Stoughton shares his experience as a previous police officer as well of the experiences of others and states how the training of police officers “is part of the problem” (Stoughton 2014, pg.2) with police violence of present day. Police are trained to respond to every situation with the mentality of encountering a dangerous situation, and that hesitation can end up deadly for the officer (Stoughton 2014, pg.3). Police are also trained to be afraid (Stoughton 2014, pg.3). They are shown videos where officers are killed but aren’t given the chances of an civilian to officer violent interaction happening, which have gone down in the past years (Stoughton 2014, pg.5).
