33). The code of the street emerges when the influence of formal guardianship, such as police, disappears and people begin to feel a sense of personal responsibility for their own safety. When we think about the amount of violence these people experience or witness, it would make since that a sort of fight or flight reflex would kick in. In this case, the residents seem to choose to fight, mostly because they are lacking the ability to get away from their
The rule is intended to prevent police officers from violating the rights granted by the Fourth Amendment. Thus, evidence obtained by the police that violates the Fourth Amendment cannot be used to convict someone accused of a crime. Some people think that without this rule, the Fourth Amendment would not make sense. As with many other legal rules, this rule has several exceptions. In the Supreme Court relied on the rule of "good faith" holding that the evidence obtained by the officers conducting inquiries based on a "good faith" court order that is subsequently found to be deficient is also admissible.
The magnitude of police involvement can have devastating effects on the community, department, family and friends. For example, if parents have strict rules in there house about drugs once the child is outside the home it is hard to extend those rules while out in the streets it is even more difficult when being approached by an aggressive drug dealer or gang member while the police turn the other way. These are the type of threats that some kids deal with in the intercity and low income areas. It has been proven that the attitudes of the people and demographics of the area does play into how the community is received by law enforcement personnel (Stein & Griffith, 2017, p 150).
This lack in faith is reinforced by the unlikelihood of convicting the attacker. If a crime is reported to police it is usually dismissed due to a lack of evidence. Many instances of sexual assault are often labeled as "unfounded" by police, meaning the police disregard the report as hearsay since there was insufficient evidence to convict an attacker(Doolittle, 2017). Usually, the cases labeled unfounded ( after being reviewed by police) found no violation against the law. The Uniform Crime Reporting Survey (UCR) (an overview of sexual assaults compiled by police) does not include cases of unfounded sexual assault as they are either unreliable and create discrepancies regarding reporting(Rotenburg, 2017).
Throughout history, disputes and tensions between law enforcement officials and communities of minorities have endured hostility and violence between each other. Racial profiling has become a “hot topic” for researchers as well as for politicians and by now it is likely that most citizens are at least aware of the common accusations of racial bias pitted against law enforcement (Cochran & Warren, 2013). Communities of color are being discriminated against and racially profiled by white police officers for any suspicion of criminal activities. It has been widely assumed by policy makers and citizens alike that allegations of racial profiling are mostly associated with the policing practices of white officers and their treatment of racial and ethnic minorities (Cochran & Warren, 2013). Also, individuals of minority descent will certainly recognize that they are being racially profiled during a stop that is being conducted by a white police officer.
Despite this level of awareness, police officers who receive calls that report a cybercrime are rarely qualified to investigate and understand technology to the extent that justice is achieved for the individual. State police officers frequently try to throw cybercrimes at the hands of federal police because they not wanting to be the first responders . The community expects police officers to do their job perfectly or at least try to do so because when they fail to investigate an electronic crime, the rights of many of the victims will surely be lost because the police have not done their duty to protect the rights of individuals. The solution to this problem is that the state should start the training and development of officers' skills, or at least some of them so that they can protect citizens from losing their rights
From school age children to the elderly, being a victim yourself it can be passed on without even knowing what you are doing. Many child abuse cases are a product of being abused at some point during their lives by a parent or another person. Also, theft often starts during younger years as a result of lack of material things other children may have. But either way it all falls in the category of crime and if caught the label of criminal will then follow you. Children are labeled as a “Bad child” or “Troubled Kid” in their toddler years and because of this they may feel this is all they will ever be.
People are made uncomfortable being confronted by authorities, making interaction with police officers tense from the very beginning. Another reason people are uncomfortable with the police is because they do not know them. To the average person, police officers represent this looming faceless force of power, waiting to find a reason to come after them. Frequently, the first time someone interacts with a police officer in their community is when they are being pulled over for a traffic violation. This establishes a lack of relatability with the police officers and dehumanizes them.
They end up having nothing and have nowhere else to turn but to the streets. The system makes the juveniles lives harder by the situations that they end up in once they are out of jail. Police make them seem as if they are already criminals so why not be the people that the system sees them as. Teenagers in OPP do not get the correct medical treatment (Josh). The ways that they are treated and how they receive no help is ashame because that is not how people should be treated no matter where they are.
Another reason for the their fear may be because many of them participated in prostitution before they became victims which was viewed as a victimless crime in which they would be arrested. Victims were always on high security and if they use a cell phone/telephone or try to reach out to the police they will be punished. A lot of them have problems even trusting the police because commonly the law enforcement is corrupted and is being bribed by the
Joint enterprise is growing problem in our modern society were teenagers are sentenced because they were present when the offender delivered the fatal blow. There have been arguments for and against joint enterprise and whether the law should stay or be abolished this is because too many young people are being condemned for just witnessing attacks or observing illegal activities. I do believe those who took part deserve to be punished too, just not as rigorously. Personally I believe that the offender who commits the crime should therefore be held accountable and should be punished for it. This leaves us wondering: are the wrong people going to jail?
According to law, if someone of legal age happens to obtain an affair with a minor they must register as sex offender. Most of the time they get by using technology to try to keep it quiet or a secret. Investigators first place to look when a complaint is filed is through social media and cell phones. It has been a huge discussion on how to sentence teachers for having affairs with students. Teachers however, shall suffer a greater sentence due to the fact that they educators of the state.
The media needs to step in as this unprofessional harassing administrative behavior has been documented all year long. No longer can this be pushed under the rug. Media and lawyers need to be notified and action must take place. Teachers should not live in fear of harassment or false documentations, to lowering observations as personal vendettas are being fulfilled by the observers. Bullying and Harassment in the work place is illegal and not a good representation of what OCPS should stand
Christopher finds spoken language difficult when too many things are being discussed at once, which can be seen from his reaction to the police interrogating him at the crime scene of the dog’s murder. As the questions were being asked, Christopher had difficulties processing all of them. He reacts to the multiple questions with this line in the book: “He was asking me too many questions and he was asking them too quickly.” Another line to note is “I make this noise when there is too much information coming into my head from the outside world.” These two lines show that he had a very difficult time keeping up with the pacing. This can also apply to other areas, such as jokes. When his father tells him the joke about the curtains, which uses three
In executing the powers however, the law-making subsystem did not accept to afford the police uncontrolled discretion. Instead, while digressing from the accepted test of reasonable suspicion, s44 and its predecessor stop and search were shaped provisional to mandatory, statutorily proscribed process prior to being adopted. This Government described this process as a means to provide operational flexibility, paired with clear safeguards avoiding misuse. However, interpretation of this procedure by the police aided the use of the powers disregarding the level of oversight through which the legislature validated through their expansive and highly discretionary drafting. This disparity, between the legislature and the police arising from different subsystem expectations regarding the nature of powers, which in turn diminished the effectiveness of the statutory safeguards against misuse.
