These numbers need to change. What is police brutality? According to S. Danilina, police brutality is the use of excessive and/or unnecessary force by police when dealing with civilians. (1) In a recent case that took place in Louisiana, Alton Sterling was a 37 year old black male, who was shot and killed outside of a convenient store by two officers. A nearby bystander took a video footage and it shows the officers in action apprehending Sterling, you can hear Sterling being tased twice while the officers yell “get to the ground, get to the ground”.
These events made the Blacks realize we are hurting our comment and need to stop. All of those events lead up to the city realizing what damage they did to the community. During the time when Arthur McDuffie was beat to his death by Dade county police officers, an event of riots broke out in Dade county, these deadly events created very bad damage to the black community and caused more racial conflict in the community. In the future of the topic there would still be police brutality and killings of blacks by law enforcements. As you can see the incident that happened in Baltimore recently.
Gun control has been a big factor in today’s society, now days it is often to see people getting their lives taken from them due to guns. Having researched one side of the issue, that gun violence had increased over the last year. Having researched the other side of the issue, more gun owners are feeling their rights are being taken little by little. There is no question this is a complicated issue that will require a complicated answer. Due to the black market on guns, anyone can acquire one without a background check.
The way an officer approach person need to be changed because most suspects are killed instantly due to suspicion of them having a gun or an officer feeling threatened. Officers have killed men, children, women innocent victims everyone is not a suspect. If there is harsher punishment enforced upon officers they will make officers more rational before making a decision and not so quickly and pulling out a gun. Average citizens usually considered the law before commits a crime know the risk fact may lead to jail. Police should consider the same fact that they could go to jail too, police are not above the law.
Violence and Racism have erupted like a volcano in our society. Not only has it become a problem with the public, it has now become a problem in law enforcement. The very people who protect the public are mistreating citizens of their own country. Racist police brutality has become a controversial topic of modern times, with police killing innocent citizens. The stories have kept popping up so much that is starting to be recognized as a major problem.
Some police officers have been known to put their prejudice in front of their responsibility to protect and serve. Some people use force in direct response to perceived threats from racial or economic groups that they view as threatening (“Police”). Another possible explanation could be explained with psychology. Personality disorders, personal problems, post-job related trauma or simply officers being young and inexperienced, can all explain why police brutality happens (Gilio-Whitaker). Police officers need to put their beliefs and issues aside while on the job.
There’s a lot going on about the world and how cops use excessive force when it comes to taking down the bad guy.This topic focuses on the black lives matter movement because they are letting cops get away with murder because the color of their skin and they wear a blue uniform with a badge. In many cases such as Michael Brown, Christian Thomas, and the little African American who the cop threw out the chair in SC. where the authority use excessive force to make their position clear in the society, but they do it too extreme and not needed. While sometime the amount of force is needed to withstand the victim , police abuse their authority in many cases because they can and is not needed but racial bias is playing a part. In many cases, the use of excessive force is needed, but also in many cases it’s not.
CP shifts the role of the police from the expert with all the answers to a partner in an effort to create the community a better and safer place in which to live and work .it also not a top – down approach. It shifts more power, authority, responsibility to the level by requiring so that everyone in the department can find the way to express the philosophe in their
Is the US Police department creating an environment in where it is allowed to use police force wrongly? I would agree. In most cases along with many documentaries, alleged crimes like these are not always adequately addressed by the Justice Department, sometimes even being shrugged off by the system. In simpler words I feel as if this is almost unfair. For those who might not know what this familiar, yet almost unrecognizable crime among officers is simpler terms is when the authorities abuse of their power, causing grave problems throughout the different communities across the country to which must be Immediately addressed by the system.
There is a slogan that say “driving while black” means that the cops while pull you over just because of your skin color or just because it look like you have done something to affect society.In the spring of 1998, New Jersey state police pulled over a van on the state turnpike carrying four young black men on their way to basketball tryouts at North Carolina Central University. What happened next was the subject of debate: the men claimed to be cooperating, but police charged that the van 's driver, in an act of rage, backed up and attempted to run them over. The result was bloodshed. The police fired and three of the four occupants of the van were wounded. When the police searched the van, they found no weapons, no drugs, nothing but basketball equipment
The media loves to exploit any story where they can throw the race card and this case is a huge example of this. In the video, “How Racist are Ferguson Police?” it states that police in Ferguson have “established clear racial disparities that adversely impact African Americans” but people seem to ignore the fact that the reason Michael Brown was alerted to the police in the first place was because he committed theft. When a police officer sees a person who fits the description of a criminal it is his job to address the issue, and that is what officer Darren Wilson did. Brown went after Wilson and there is factual evidence of Brown’s blood being found on the gun and in the car of Officer Wilson. Wilson did not shoot Brown because he was black, but because he was dealing with a criminal who was posing a threat to his life.
It also concluded that it took a longer time for a police officer to shoot an armed black man than a white one. There is no doubt that there is police brutality. In the old case of Rodney King, it was a clear case of police brutality the police should be prosecuted and put into jail over something of that nature. There are police who feel too empowered and feel like they gen do anything without. Consequences Sadly, this does happen at times the police will abuse their power over people and get away with it.
In Law Enforcement and enforcing the law there is six areas in which police departments have been found to be defective or deficient. This is a very difficult topic for me to agree with because police officers are put in to very stressful and unknown circumstances on a daily bases. In many cases these scenarios require a decision to be made in a split second or it could be life or death. This split second decision has months and months to be twisted and picked apart by lawyers, jury, and mostly the media. Another reason police receive such attention is because it is their job to be in the view of the public at all times and today’s technology is making it even more difficult for them to effectively and efficiently do their jobs.
The U.S. justice system is considered the fairest of all but if confessions are inadmissible and true criminals are released then our society will progress under great peril from continued violent acts. Law enforcement officers are mandated by Miranda to advise subjects in a custodial interrogation of their rights under the Fifth Amendment and their right to a counsel under the Sixth Amendment. The policies of police departments everywhere had to be changed due to Miranda; as this decision provided a fundamental shift in the tactics being used by investigators to interrogate suspects. No longer could officers pray on the ignorance of the law or intimidation of authority in order to compel confessions. “The courts have made it very clear that the use of physical force or physical abuse or even the threat of this type of conduct on the part of police will render a confession involuntary” (Wicklander & Zulawski, 2002, p.
