Why Crime Calls So Much Trouble Crime goes in-depth with not only discussing crime, but carefully depicting and deciphering crimes or been committed across the United States. These authors demonstrate the significance of the crime, why crimes are committed and what kind of justice is acted out with certain crimes. The reason why this topic should be important for readers is because we all know that crime is committed everywhere, so it is very vital that we as people should stop it. Crime has become a big problem in our society which has ways of hurting the community causing more violence. Now more than ever children are not only committing crimes, but they are susceptible to crime as well.
The principle explains that police should use only the amount of physical force necessary to restore order and protect public if using warning or persuasion is not working on an individual. This is important because it is not ok for anyone to use physical force in not completely necessary. If using physical force is not required, then it should always be avoided. Although, if an officer must use physical force than it should be the least amount necessary to protect the individual and surrounding public. For modern police officers this an important principle, this is not always followed and not following this principle causes many unnecessary tragedies and conflicts.
Racial Tension in Michael Brown 's case On August 9, 2014, eighteen-year-old Michael Brown was shot by Darren Wilson in Ferguson, Missouri. The shooting caused protests and has drawn the world’s attention because Michael Brown was an unarmed black man while Darren Wilson is a white police officer. People believe Michael Brown’s shooting involves a racial tension between blacks and whites since Brown was unarmed and surrendered. In Ferguson, the majority of people are African Americans, and the majority of police officers are white. On the night of the shooting incident, Brown was walking home and confronted by Wilson because Wilson thought Brown was suspicious.
Something will always need to be fixed in society because society is a reflection of us, and we are not perfect. Recently, there’s been many issues that have caught the attention of people living all across the world. Things such as police brutality, sexual assault in the workplace, and immigration law, just to name a few, but there’s also been an underlying issue that people are becoming more informed about, and that I believe matters - prison reform. Prison reform matters because in many instances, prisoners are treated inhumanely when they are locked up, and aren’t treated as humans when they have served their time. I believe we can bring about change in the prison system by changing the way we punish people who do commit crimes and focusing more on actual rehabilitation.
This can include police officer, patrol officer, sheriff’s office, and/or corrections officer. Once hired into one of these positions, the candidate will undergo a background check, drug testing, and a battery of mental and physical assessments. Another condition to becoming a police or patrol officer is successfully completing the police academy. This is usually required within a certain timeframe after becoming an officer. Being a police officer is a very stressful and demanding career, but in order to meet the ultimate goal of becoming a criminal investigator the candidate must have both the will and determination to push forward.
Today I want to tell you of the injustice of police brutality, the people it affects, and how just asking the right questions could make sure that police are punished for their crimes. BODY PARAGRAPH 1 Police brutality is a big problem in the United States. Police brutality is a misconduct when police use violence that is not necessary. This includes unjust shootings, which is when whoever was shot did not deserve to be shot because they either did nothing wrong or was complying with orders but was still shot. This is a big problem in the U.S. because it happens all around the states.
Undoubtedly, militaries around the world train individuals to do extremely violent things to other humans. Often times transitioning away from a high tempo, hyper violent environment back to civilian life is a difficult process. William C. Gentry, a San Diego County prosecutor was once quoted saying “You are unleashing certain things in a human being we don’t allow in civic society, and getting it all back in the box can be difficult for some people.” Andrew Chambers is a veteran who had such problems adjusting. During a night out with some friends, Chambers severely beat someone who had pulled out a knife during an argument. At his trial the judge said to him, “Mr.
Are Police Racist On April 29, 2017 Jordan Edwards, unarmed, was leaving a house party that was getting “out of hand”. He was fatally shot and killed while in the car leaving with his brother and three other unarmed teenagers. Jordan was considered a great student and he was liked by many of his teachers and classmates. This is just one of the many times police officers have fatally shot someone that was unarmed and just happened to be black. Police racism is a very big problem in America.
There are a multitude of things that need to be repaired in our system, and prison is one of them. Prison reform is an important issue because we need to take care of everyone and with the way we treat criminals, we do not see them as equal. We need to assess illegal acts correctly instead of trying to put people in jail for the rest of their lives. We also need to work more on how we try to rehabilitate people. Instead of barring convicts off from the rest of us, we need to teach them how to integrate, so they can live better lives than they did
An incident such as this has been recalled by Jason Henry from Pasadena Star news where "two bank robbers in military-grade body armor and armed with automatic weapons sprayed some 1,000 armor-piercing rounds in a 44-minute gun battle with under-geared police officers." The gun fight presented on the news made our officers appear as if they were helpless to defend themselves as well as the civilians that were injured or killed. The 1033 program is somewhat useful when purchasing things like body armor or weapon modifications. However full blown military gear makes some areas involving riots such as Ferguson seem as a policed City State. Law enforcement officers more disconnected with their communities using only the newest equipment to maintain order rather than the use of traditional methods.
This evidence was a video that was taken by a passerby. The footage showed Scott as he attempts to make a getaway before Slager took aim and fired multiple rounds into Scott as his back was turned. Once incapacitated, Slager is seen approaching the lifeless body of Walter Scott and planting his taser nearby. Of course, it’s easy to see that Slager’s story does not match up with the truth. After being shocked by the massive differences between Slager’s story and what the video showed to be true, Slager was then tried and found guilty of the murder of Walter Scott (“Former South Carolina Police Officer”).
Eric Garner is a more recent example of a time police used excessive force. He was an African American male who was choked to death. In an attempt to sell cigarettes on the street Garner caught the police’s attention. As the police were trying to arrest him one of them decided to bring him down by his neck. In the video Garner can clearly an repeatedly be herd saying that he couldn’t breathe.
Consequently, people are suffering injustice and some are even losing their lives simply because people holding a “badge” believe they have more power than someone who doesn’t hold one. But there are many options to incorporporate to help minimize or completely stop Police Brutality. Everything could be solved and settled in a courtroom. Police Officers should be required and be mandatory to wear a video camera on their chest to capture every incident the encounter. “Video recorded by body cams protect any
Police feel as if they are unstoppable. Police brutality can also take the form of false arrests, verbal abuse. Many countries have laws which address police brutality. Under these laws police brutality is seen as a very serious offense and was investigated by a commission of district attorneys. Even with the law covering police brutality, many complaints made by civilians about excessive
Policing has seen much progress. Some reforms do work, and some types of abuse have been reduced. Today, among both police officials and rank and file officers, it is widely recognized that police brutality hinders good law enforcement.Whenever a new case of police brutality comes to light, people in the community must respond politically to ensure justice for the victim. These actions must be timely to be truly effective. We need an organization in place that can mobilize people quickly, organize demonstrations and other actions, defend the victim, challenge the "police version" of incidents in the media, and that can build an ongoing climate of resistance to police brutality in all its forms (Glasser,
