Also in this letter Rader also suggested possible names for himself and the one that he became known for which was BTK (criminal motives.com ). In this 2nd letter Rader demanded media attention and it was finally announced that Witchita did have a serial killer and a poem was also included in the letter titled "Oh! Death to Nancy" (Blanco) (criminal motives.com ). In the year 1979 Dennis Rader sent two identical packages one to his intended victim who wasn’t at home and one to KAKE (Blanco) which also included another poem titled “Oh Anna Why Didn’t You Appear”, a drawing of what he intended to
Chivington, had witnessed the lynching (Linder). He said that there were no deputies guarding the jail on the night of Johnson’s lynching when there was usually six or seven (Linder). Edward Chaddick told the court that he had given Shipp a telegram by hand from the U.S. Supreme Court on the afternoon of the lynching (Linder). John Stonecipher said that a man asked him to help lynch Johnson that night (Linder). Stonecipher told the man that Shipp would probably not agree with that, but the man countered that Shipp did agree, and there wouldn’t be anybody on guard that night (Linder).
Prisons that are managed by the government is the most effective form of prison system. The government is responsible for the services that the citizens want to be provided publicly and are willing to pay (Gregson, 2000). Privatization means that there will be more government spending as the government will be the financier as they shift the functions and responsibilities to the private sector (Gregson, 2000). Private prisons can raise concerns on how are they managed.
Hiring police forces has been a debatable subject between human resource experts in police organization. While some people believe that newly-hired young officers must be chosen locally, other experts will say that this method would not be influential On the one hand people who support regional priority would argue that due to higher level of familiarity with social issues and even geographical aspects of a city, required information will be easily attained by local employees. Moreover, they believe that if any argument arises between local residents, they could easily solve it because of their connection with elder residents and also friendly connections between citizens.
Having the ability to have a program in every prison could be a great business. Not only could a state or country benefit by teaching their criminals but this could also help them become successful after they serve their time. This could also be beneficial in the long run to communities, many individuals who has a parent in a prison system has a more likely hood to make bad decisions and end up incarcerated themselves then those who do not have parents incarcerated. This is a change that could reshape the business and society relationships. If the possibility of an education program could be in place in every prison or in major prisons this could strengthen communities, rise low income populations and educate more people.
After several cases with shaky witnesses and cases that have become national headlines have made citizens at edge with law enforcement officers. The use of body worn cameras to be worn by local law enforcement officers during their shift would be a major turnaround in some cases. The use of body-worn cameras has become a prestige piece of equipment to help better assist the community and other local law enforcement agencies. Moreover, using the body-worn cameras during the entire shift will eliminate the complaints caused by citizens and clear up harassment charges being brought upon by citizens as well. Having local law enforcement officers wear body-worn cameras could clear up a lot of questions they have and would eliminate the daily questions that goes through citizens heads when the turn on the news to see another unarmed citizen has fell to the hands of a law enforcement officer, while his body-worn camera was not
When I originally critiqued that work, I hoped for a larger sampling size besides his one informant. If a supporting focus group was used, Rubenstein may have been able to back up the stress relievers he discovered as well as potentially uncovered more like sports, recreational activities and alcohol use. The incorporation of a focus group into my study may allow further verification that the informant’s information is encompassing and correct. Maybe a younger member of the focus group could provide further insight into use of modern technology or new terminologies.
In 1971, a psychologist and professor at Stanford University named Philip Zimbardo, together with his colleagues conducted an experiment entitled the Stanford prison experiment, which was an extension to the research called “the Lucifer effect” he was conducting. Zimbardo research involved trying to answer the question of what happens when you put good people in an evil place. And does humanity win over evil or does evil prevails? Zimbardo therefore conducted the Stanford prison experiment to observe the effects prison can have on human behavior. He wanted to find out “whether the brutality reported among guards in American prisons was due to the sadistic personalities of the guards (i.e. dispositional) or had more to do with the prison environment
With a four month program RECAP which inmates that could not act regularly to other programs this program got into hard detail of offenders if group sessions were negative to inmates. RECAP gives all the tools needed for inmates to get the actual skills required minimizing unnecessary programs that doesn’t really deter criminals and they find RECAP beneficial to their needs. Once RECAP improve their skills needed when looking for a job, employers and those looking for candidates can receive the good news of them rather than the old criminal news. With RECAP being the source of the
However, large universities prepare you for real life where there is a lot of pressure and stress and students need to get used to it. Friendly people are everywhere and it is not true that students can only find friendly people in small universities. Opponents also argue that in small universities students tend to have more communication with the doctors. Even if the university is big small classes may be there. In small classes doctors and students can communicate more.
In chapter six, Chain Reaction: Enactment and Repeal of Anti-Chain Store Laws, Rao’s focus is on Wal-Mart. During the very first page of the chapter, Rao mentions Al Norman, “[…] a resident of Greenfield, sparked a campaign that emphasized the loss of a small-town feel” (Rao, 2009, p. 119), however there is no mention of him again. Instead, Rao frequently mentions and attributes the success to “the anti-chain store movement” (Rao, 2009, p.140). Although Norman cannot and should not be attributed with all the success, Rao is shorting him by not giving him any spotlight. In 1993, Norman was encouraged by a local official to lead a campaign to stop Wal-Mart from entering Greenfield.
In recent decades, there has been a trend developing in America towards the privatization of America’s prisons. Independent companies have contracted, built and staffed prisons in several different states instead of having the government in control of these facilities. There is still much uncertainty, however, if private prisons will be able to succeed. Some companies have failed while others cling to average revenues. Some people believe that these measures will save taxpayers money while other are afraid that private prisons have no real interest in rehabilitating prisoners.
Private Prisons and Mass Incarceration–The Problem of the United States In America, the private prison industry was made for necessary profit based off of the management of prisons by large, private companies. In David Shapiro’s insightful report “Banking on Bondage”, he discusses the logistics of the United States prison system, saying “In America, our criminal justice system should keep us safe, operate fairly, and be cost-effective”. Today, the United States imprisons more people than any other nation in the world, including Russia, China, and Iran.
Solitary confinement has been a crucial component of the American prison system since the appearance of jails in the early 1800’s. One main cricsticsm of solitary conferment has been that is causes the inmates increased psychological and sociological distress .Not only that but can in turn make the inmate more violent. The use of solitary confinement is highly profound in supermax prisons .
Solitary confinement began as a standard punishment of the penitentiary system in the United States in the nineteenth century. It was a response to the philosophical transformation influenced by the Enlightenment, that sought to distance punishment from brutality (Cloud, Drucker, Browne, & Parsons, 2015). The penitentiary system was developed as a more humane alternative to the torture and executions that were happening in England (Cloud et al., 2015). Instead of having corporal and capital punishment, such as public hangings and whippings, individuals were confined to their own cells (Guenther, 2013). Supporters, such as the Quakers, believed that this confinement would force the individuals to confront their own conscience, and they would
