In this situation the Patrol officer stopping the Mayor and giving her a ticket for traffic violations would be in the great good of other motorists on the highway. The patrol officer has a job to do, which requires serving and protecting the public. The officer stopping the mayor is for the safety of others and the mayor. By issuing the Mayor ticket the patrol officer is doing their duty as an officer. However, if the patrol officer lets the Mayor off the hook again because of courtesy, then he is not fulfilling his duties because they are allowing her to continue to break laws.
These men and women are responsible for the safety and wellbeing of the community they protect and serve. Police officers are meant to enforce the law, but why in some cases, does the law not adhere to them? With that being said, police officers need to be held accountable for such intolerable acts and need to be shown some sort of punishment because too many innocent men, women, and even kids are paying the price for the officers’ mistakes. As a way to try to prevent police brutalities and misconduct, body-worn cameras have been issued to document the behavior of police officers. This might have sounded like a good idea to stop police brutality, but in reality it had little effect and simply publicized the fact that police are abusing their power.
One could be lying, but make it believable. The other could be telling the truth, but does not have enough evidence. The same for police officers, they all aren't honest or trustworthy. Although police should wear body camera while they are on duty, this is also invading people's privacy. Police officers need to insure the safety and trust of the citizens by wearing body camera.
Sandy Banks is bothered by the injustice of police officers towards possible innocent victims. Because it seems like if officers rely on shooting at people as their safest option, Banks demands better training to help solve this issue. Police officers being caught on camera doesn 't changes the fact that the victim will become wounded, or pass away, yet, in most cases officers are not held accountable for the insensible act. In her article, "Horrific videos aren 't solving police shootings, but better training might" Banks asks for better training for police officers, as she developed strong pathos with details, great logos with logical solutions and consequences, but a weak ethos by not mentioning her credentials and the other side of the story.
This is because if one is watching the incident happen by themselves, then they feel that they are responsible. Whereas in a crowd, there are many people who have the potential to help but don’t because, they believe someone else in the crowd will (Feist and Rosenberg, 2015). There is also the fact that people are getting misinterpretations based on the acts of others. If no one is doing anything, then there maybe is no emergency. This is an example of informative social influence (Feist and Rosenberg, 2015).
For modern police officers this an important principle, this is not always followed and not following this principle causes many unnecessary tragedies and conflicts. This principle should be used by the general public as well, in case of an incident, to only use self-defense if absolutely necessary. The seventh principle of peel is a really important for everyone to remember. This principal helps people understand that there is not much difference between the public and officers. The principal explains that the police are the public and the public are the police, the only difference is that police are payed and make it their full-time duty for modern police officers and public this is important for people to remember because of big divide between the
Police deviance is something that isn’t particularly talked about in the open. The reactions to certain actions by the police are either kept under wraps or blown up in the media to a dramatic extent. The purpose of this paper is to focus on the negative side of police deviance and the repercussions that follow. This will allow some light to be shown on the actions of officers that don’t follow the rules that they set out to uphold. If the peacekeepers aren’t keeping the peace, then the reasoning for having a position of power is null.
However as I got older I would frequently hear about someone getting killed by the police force. It still didn’t click but I knew what was happening. Growing up police brutality wasn’t broadcasted as much as it should’ve have been. This then made me think about how to improve police brutality not only dealing with African Americans but also with other colored skinned people. In “Etiquette of Police Violence” Rion Alamar Scott talks about some of the things cops first assume to do when approaching someone of color.
The police are right to be skeptical because even though there is no real proof that they use racial profiling. Groups of people are saying they are and that is the reason it is okay for them to trash towns and destroy everyone 's hard earned stuff. It is not right to blame cops actions as the reason people no longer have cars, homes, or stores. As of now the Police are being demonized by groups such as Black Lives Matters and the Media. They do show some incidents of shootings and tell some facts; however, they don’t tell you everything.
Quentin Tarantino once said “Just because I was at an anti-police brutality protest, doesn 't mean I 'm anti-police. We want justice, but stop shooting unarmed people.” Some people that read this quote might totally disagree but i believe it to be true. Too many people these days think that just because your are anti-police brutality means that you are also just anti-police which is not the case. Even though the police force is doing all the can to handle the situation as much as possible, police misconduct and brutality in the United states is becoming more common and should be resolved immediately because it has led to too many innocent people dying because of their reckless actions which was all caused by police acting on situations
Officers do not have them on at all times, which is a little of a crutch that people can get out of. The reason why officers do not have them on at all times is because they don’t want to be recording very pointless stuff when it’s gonna be wasting the memory of the camera body. Officers turn it on when they are getting off the car or anytime they feel something suspicious is happening. This society is not one that feels protected, but knows when an officer know from right and wrong, many will fight back to have that freedom of speech but it is never really heard from anyone. Officers also know the fact that they are being watched so they can be more careful on how they arrest/ take down a person.
As one flicks through the news, he or she may be startled or shocked to discover the sheer amount of police cruelty occurring in public space. As an extension of government, the police inherit the same powers involving public space. Although they cannot create new policies, they act to enforce the policies designed by the government. Police are often mistakenly advertised as a source of protection for citizens. However, Anderson refuses to neglect the truth: they are the villains.
As routine officers arrive on scene to carry out the purpose of the police department by providing peace, safety, and to maintain order emotions, rights and authority can disrupt judgment. In the case of Oscar Grant one officers actions were quickly misunderstood because another unarmed person would be killed by a police officer. In my opinion the officer failed to carry out the purpose of the police department because officers are expected to not do unnecessary harm but protect and serve. With new policy educating the public and police officers on how to commutate and react to one another could help decrease these types of actions. Including new policy that could help prevent this action of police brutality against unarmed individuals by increasing police training on de-escalating situations verbally before becoming physically aggressive.
People might respond saying that racial profiling by police isn 't as bad as people make it seem, or that it isn 't as bad as it used to be. Even if that were the case, it isn 't enough. Police forces are there to protect and enforce laws and regulations, protect the people. Not to provide weapons to racist, and bigoted people who assume power unfairly and attack anyone who doesn 't fit their idea of what is “right”. Race is not a choice, just as many other things society has decided to label are not a choice.
Sometimes this is good but sometimes they’re bad as well and the people eye can go along with a new police but not knowing there’s a twist to it. Overall racial profiling is a violation of are individual human rights and it also violates our 14th amendment. Police should stop using this method and use other methods to figure out criminal behavior. We live in a world where people are still simple minded and can’t get out of their old ways. Being racially targeted because your black or muslin any other race can take a toll on someone
