Throughout the 17th-century gangs have been causing havoc in people's life and destroying the society. The National Institute of Justice (2011) has defined a gang as "A group of collective members which create an atmosphere of intimidation among citizens." Many of these gangs are well organized, using different forms of violence to control neighbourhoods and to conduct their illegal activities. The National Gang Threat Assessment (2011) reports that “Gangs are responsible for an average of 48 percent of violent crime in most jurisdictions.” Street Gangs have caused incidences of violence that is confined in the inner city of many countries. Most gangs are made up of young males that are of a similar background and have a desire of acquiring
These crimes are often controversial, and spark media and political debate. This causes crimes to be missed or even missed tried. If the government does not effectively change its policies soon more damage will occur. It doesn 't matter whether it 's local or global damage; crime and deviance, will always have a pejorative effect on our society. Crime and deviance rates are rising, and wreaking havoc on our nation.
There are many different opinions and attributes on drugs and there are many different policies out in our societies. The images and the reputation of drugs is pouring in every corner we look, from radios to many different popular movies and what that does is convey a sense of evil and brutality that reveals immediate and brutal retaliation. The war on drugs is something that has a huge impact on society, it’s something that is extremely important especially when it comes to communities, broken families, the impact that the drug itself has on people’s lives and the actual destroyed community itself. War on drugs is an issue that isn’t only about the drugs but also about the growth of inequality between the rich and the poor, the black and the
Police Brutality stands as one of the most controversial political issues around the United States. This issue has existed throughout history with just one example being the Tompkins Square Riot in 1874. Police brutality relating to race still exists today with an arguably recent example being the Ferguson, Missouri riots which took place during 2014-2015. These examples are the result of stereotypical racial implications such as the separation between the white and black communities in more populated cities and even in smaller states. These separations and misunderstandings cause a negative impact on the police force.
The behavior of people in a crowd can change so drastically from how each individual usually acts, that this phenomenon, mob mentality, has a negative effect on society. Mob mentality is when people are influenced by others to adopt behaviors unusual to them, which very often leads to conflict. An instance where this is exhibited in media is in Lord of the Flies by William Golding, when one of the littluns proposes the idea that there may be a beast on the island. This paranoia spreads throughout most of the other boys and results in the death of two of them. Mob mentality is a prevalent occurrence in today’s society and leads to violence and loss of personal identity in both social media and face-to-face communication.
American culture sees police officers as violent, unethical people after shootings. Although not all all people see police officers that way. Over time people and police officers have had conflicts, but recent conflicts have become more violent. Violence against police officers have become an issue because officers have stated that they feel unsafe at work. The society I live in has made police officers look bad.
The American police force today has one of the toughest jobs in the country. Between the physical demands and mental toughness, they police also have to deal with the continuous negative onslaught from the media. It seems that in today’s world, there has been a war on the police in the United States and has resulted in countless deaths of police officers in the past couple years. The media and members of protest groups claim police brutality and record every single moment of any incident to blame the police for excessive use of force and ruin their careers. However, in many incidents, officers wear body cameras to counter-act the bystanders.
In the society we currently reside in, the media is plagued with police brutality, hate crime, “eff the police” banners and riots. In my time working close with these officers, I have come to realize that much of this media attention and rumors are exactly that, rumors and attempts to get more views and stir up issues. I can’t say this job path wasn’t interesting. The history of corrections is dark and savage, and our methods have changed greatly from the past, however, we do not forget the past, for it is important in the growth of our future. As stated before, I have alway be slightly curious about what it would be like as a CO, and I enjoyed the opportunity to sate that feeling.
Some officers pick money and corruption over good policing and a good reputation. Brutality and unauthorized force are also a problem and most likely always will be. Problems arise from officers thinking that they are above the law in which they uphold. “If you are wearing blue and you commit a criminal act, that is a sign of corruption” (Perry, F.L, 2003, p.1). There is a big problem revolving around whether police should carry guns or be able to shoot people.

Police brutality is the intentional use of excessive deadly force by police officers. It’s a major violation of human’s rights in the United States. The job of police officers is to protect and serve not hurt and kill. This use of deadly force takes place within the local and state police, in the sheriff’s departments and federal agencies. The police engage in brutal beatings and unjustified shootings.
So why is it that we 're afraid of the police? Is it because too much power got into their heads or they feel superiority when they harass people. There have been many cases of police brutality throughout the years, it have escalated to bigger problems and it have caused massive outrage through the nation.

Misrepresentation of racial and ethnic minorities in the United States represent an ongoing issue which broadens everyday as individuals are exposed to distorted information of these minorities in the media. Despite the issue being well known, regulations and even movements have proven unsuccessful in eradicating xenophobia, stereotypes, discrimination, and bigotry from society. Travis L. Dixon and Daniel Linz in the article, “Television News, Prejudicial Pretrial Publicity, and the Depiction of Race,” state how media portrays People of Color (Black and Latinos) as “dangerous criminals and Black defendants are often associated with drugs and violent crimes” (117). These misleading portrayals of people of color in television often create stigmas
