Others would say that they think it keeps young offenders from committing crime twice, that it will teach youth how to receive punishment, some would say it keeps crime out of the system etc. The reason why they are wrong because they haven't looked at the facts, they just looked at good experiences with YCJA foundation. An example I have a friend and my friend stole a car from a person in a community and crashed my friend had to pay for the damaged property, for the car and had to apologize to the people my friend stole the car from, after the whole process my friend did the same thing over repeatedly, what's the point? Well, all I think is that the YCJA is a waste of time but you don't have to because there are good things about it too it helps kids stay off the street and in homes even if its a group home. In my opinion, a group home, foster care anything like that is traumatizing toward kids in the program.
Random drug testing was first used by the United States military to help stop the heroin epidemic during the Vietnam War. Many public schools have been struggling with the problem of their students abusing drugs. Many schools are struggling to find a solution to the problem as well. Random drug testing is a practice that should be implemented in all public schools. Randomly testing students who are involved in extracurricular activities, would allow teachers and other adults to help lead students in the right direction and help them put an end to their addiction.
If high school students were stopped every time they saw a police officer that student will begin thinking if they keep stopping me, they might as well make it a real reason. And it is true as it is stated by Tanovich (2006), “Will likely develop a chip on his shoulder, an attitude, or a distrust of authority—all of which will be interpreted negatively”. Law enforcement officers need to keep in mind that their actions may possibly cause a negative reaction. In comparison, Higgins et al (2015), does describe the “War on Drugs” practice to quickly help eliminate or identify the potential suspects and allows officers to become more efficient at proactive law enforcement. Overall, it has also been documented that racial profiling has been misused in a way that has allowed officers to act upon their biases (Higgins et al,
Keep in mind, these are just the crimes that got them convicted. It’s hard to believe that if we want zero tolerance, all non-violent offenders should serve time in prison, as well as complete community services. All drug offenders should be held accountable for the crimes committed. Secondly, it sets a harmfully negative example for kids when the drug offender get off easy and are not punished. We open the door to potentially violent drug crimes due to people who are high on drugs who use poor judgement, and could easily hurt someone or possibly injure or harm themselves.
Why should teen felons get to spend their jail time in juvenile detention centers for committing the same crimes as adults? In today’s world, teens are increasingly committing violent crimes and being put in juvenile detention centers. Teens need to be tried as adults because it helps to bring justice to families of victims, and it also teaches the teens accountability. Charging teens as adults will also help reduce crime in the United States. Although many people feel that teens should not be given severe punishments because they are immature and innocent, they have not considered the problem teens are creating by committing these crimes..
Is today’s youth truly benefiting from school curriculums banning books? For many parents there kids innocence is more than often a top priority, but due to the growing public more and more are being exposed to explicit content. Through ideas such as the internet and other media, it has become increasingly easy to obtain this content. However, this does not mean that being able to obtain this content should be available everywhere. Although the novel In Cold Blood written by Truman Capote accurately portrays present day investigations on murder, it should be banned from school curriculums for young teens because of its explicit content.
Locker Checks Guns, drugs and knives are only some of things that are potentially slipping through the doors of schools each day without teachers or administration knowing. While some people may claim that locker checks are a violation of a student’s privacy others like myself disagree. Police or administration should have the rights to check your locker at any time. Random or regular locker checks can play a big role in eliminating crime, they are an important part of a police officer’s job and ensure school safety. First of all, random locker checks can play a big role in eliminating crime in the next generation.
Staff members get away with these crimes so easily; in return, they provide resources to the prisoners that are challenging to get such as cigarettes, extra telephone cards, and helping them pass drug tests. The New York Times reported that within eleven months, 129 prisoners acquired serious injuries due to prison guard
Stop and frisk is when an officer suspects that someone is carrying a weapon or something illegal and will pat them down it helps the police officers to prevent a crime before it happens. “It offers the potential of reducing crime over the long-term. When crime can be proactively stopped, then, the crime rates in our neighborhoods can be reduced over a more extensive period”( 12 Racial Profiling Pros and Cons). With the police officers stopping more people, they believe individuals are not going to want to carry drugs on them since they know officers can stop them. Thus reducing crimes in the neighborhood.
People may think this helps the police when it comes down to solving a crime, yet it fenders them tremendously. Majority of the time a race is singled out depending on the crime that was committed, while the police are looking for a specific race this gives the suspect time to get away, or even blend in with the crowd and act as if they are victims or bystanders. Clegg mentions “Some would argue that racial profiling is perfectly rational and ought therefore to be unobjectionable. The argument is that a disproportionate amount of street crime is committed by people who are young, and male, and black, and if you are all three then it makes perfect sense for the police to keep an especially keen eye on you, and pull you over more often, question you more carefully, and press you more aggressively to allow a search of your car. That is, it makes perfect sense if all the police are trying to do is maximize in the short term the number of their successful searches and arrests.” For example, if a shooting breaks out everyone will automatically think it is somebody of the arabic descendent not someone who’s white or black.
He was an exception cop who, like all the officers working at Jump Street, still looked young enough to pass as a teenager. However, because of the circumstances of his arrival—being sent undercover to see if the team were, in fact, guilty of entrapping minors—his acclimation from official nark to undercover nark had been a somewhat bumpy transition. Even after Tom’s accusations of rape and racism, he had taken it all in his stride and eventually, after working together, Doug, Judy and Harry had accepted him as one of their own. Only Tom held on to his lingering animosity, his distrust of Booker causing the two men to argue constantly, much to the annoyance of their captain. But Tom could not shake off his genuine dislike of Dennis Booker.
The National Gang Center Bulletin was written in order to give us information on the presence of gangs in the schools. The percentage of students in both middle and high school really shocks and saddens me; I did not realize that this number was so high. There should not be thirty-five and forty-five percent of students in any grade level affiliated to gangs. This article also reveals that not only are male students joining, female students are becoming members as well. Everyone knows that gang life follows you no matter where you go, so by these kids still being in school, they bring the trouble around other students and if affects and jeopardizes their safety.
He committed the crime and was able to get away with it because the store policy says that they cannot chase them. Although differential association can be seen in high schools it can also be seen through different groups of adults because it based on who they associate themselves with and if they involve themselves in criminal activity. Differential association theory plays a huge role in high schools because students learn to commit crimes due to the association of those around them and can influence their behaviors (Siegel,
Bell, a retired cruiserweight champion, who defeated Jean-Marc Mormeck for the championship on January 7, 2006. Norma Bell, the mother, responded to an interview with Channel 2 Action News saying how she felt relieved that criminal law had made two arrests. She says that she wants to understand the thought process of the suspect. In addition to this robbery, Davis is believed to be responsible for other robberies in East Point and Clayton County. With the recent success in the case, they can bring those responsible to justice.
Drug testing is very effective many studies in the past has shown that students reported using drugs had use it less and less, and they also found out that students who did use drugs for sports have a good accurate chance they will use it in their future lives in a sport career. Now some may argue that is not necessary for students to have a drug test just for joining a club, I understand the disbelief in parents when they see this but drug testing is for making sure no students are taking drugs. The test is also for helping out kids who secretly had drug abuse problem and so the policy just wants to help every students that is possibly in danger of drug
