With 136 recorded unarmed deaths from 2015 to 2016, there is a need for reform within policing procedures (“Number of People…” 1). Further, Castille’s death gives rise in efforts to stop police brutality, such as the notable Black Lives Matter Movement. Sensing a biased attitude, minority groups perceive policing figures as untrustworthy and unreliable, demonstrating a decline in police accountability. However, police accountability in Castille’s case is disputable because traffic stops are known as the most dangerous part in policing, and the shooting may have been carried out for self-protection rather than personal satisfaction (“Police Brutality: Do…” 8). When discussing possibilities of reform based on the circumstance of the brutal act, there is an evolving debate of whether community involvement is effective in fulfilling a role towards regaining democratic order and public security, or if the police force should continue to take law enforcement matters into their own hands (Friedmann

In the wake of listening to it, they flipped the tape over and found a recorded discussion in which Myers griped intensely that he was being compelled to frame McMillian, whom he didn 't have the faintest idea, for a crime neither of them had any part in. Further examination uncovered that McMillian 's had just been changed over to a "Low-rider" six months after the crime occurred, and that prosecutors had disguised data around a witness who had seen the casualty alive after the time the prosecutors asserted that McMillian had killed her. The two witnesses who had affirmed that they had seen McMillian 's truck withdrawn their affirmation, and conceded that they lied at trial. On February 23, 1993, the Alabama Court of Criminal Appeals turned around McMillian 's conviction and requested another trial. On March 2, 1993, prosecutors rejected charges against McMillian and he was discharged.
According to the corners report there were many different lacerations and including the dilation of her anal cavity; it was concluded they had been done much later after her death occurred.

Tyrone Howard, who was a criminal given numerous opportunities for diversion programs rather than jailed due to drug charges, allegedly murdered New York Police Officer Randolph Holder. The murder of the honored officer led supporters of the programs to question the embracement of incarceration limits, which they ask: “Are we moving too fast to embrace the limits of incarceration by introducing diversion programs?” Howard is one of the multiple instances of how alternatives such as drug courts and diversion programs failed to educate a more civil and righteous behavior and thoughts. However, others such as P. David Soares continue to argue “Tyrone
This quote shows that Wilson believes the driver of the car that killed Myrtle was performing an act of murder. This revelation and earlier discovery of his wife’s affair pushes him to the brink of reality, and he believes there is no solution other than to avenge his wife’s death. Consequently, he later finds and murders Gatsby whom he believes to be the killer. The difference in the context of Tom and Wilson’s acts of violence demonstrate the differences in their
Racial profiling can cause multiple problems. Several law enforcement agencies have gone through expensive litigation over civil rights concerns. Police-citizen relations in those communities have been strained, making policing all the more challenging. Most importantly, racial profiling is unlikely to be an effective policing strategy as criminals can simply shift their activities outside the profile (e.g., if racial profiling begins with police stopping black males in their teens and twenties. The "cumulative impact of racial discrimination accounts for the special, way that blacks have of looking at and evaluating" their experiences in public encounters (Feagin, 1991:115).

One case that was found was about the civil rights of Earl Faison in New Jersey, whose rights were deprived from him.

This shows that more than one officer can be involved in depriving someone of their civil rights. During this time, in April, Earl died one hour after a false arrest for the murder of Officer Joyce Carnegie (Boyd).
