Point 1. The collected evidence ought to be suppressed for failure to issue Miranda warnings during a custodial interrogation. Miranda warnings were made mandatory by the Supreme Court to protect the citizenry from hard police interrogation tactics and forced confessions. However, when a private citizen becomes the interrogator outside, the application of Miranda becomes less strict. The Constitution does not restrain a private citizen in the same ways as law enforcement, unless that citizen is acting as an agent of law enforcement.
It elaborates further on the concept of “jail diversion” explaining a program in Bexar County Texas that is having success in doing just that as well as helping mentally ill lead better more successful lives. The author states that there is a high percentage of homeless mentally ill in jails and too much is expected of law enforcement and the criminal justice system in regards to mental health care. This is corroborated in the readings of Slate et al. (2013) as police officers are described as “street corner psychiatrists” and “providers of “psychiatric first aid”. The author also describes the growing pressures on emergency rooms to treat mentally ill who are over twice as likely to be admitted to the hospital than those with other
The shift is attributed to the unexpected clinical needs of this new outpatient population, the inability of community mental health centers to meet these needs, and the changes in mental health laws (Pollack & Feldman, 2003). Thousands of mentally ill people flowing in and out of the nation 's jails and prisons. In many cases, it has placed the mentally ill right back where they started locked up in facilities, but these jail and prison facilities are ill-equipped to properly treat and help them. In 2006 the Bureau of Justice Statistics estimated that there were; 705,600 mentally ill inmates in state prisons, 78,000 in federal prisons, and
Similarly, the educational aspect portrayed in the article, and an interesting repetition, “You don’t get to assault police officers.” Nonetheless, explained in the article assaulting an officer won’t do any great deeds; instead, it does you more harm. Hence, there is provided due process and access to the court, if one finds the wrongdoings of the officer(s)
A recent research showed that to motivate clients to change, the scare tactics are most likely to produce the intended change in behavior ( Goodman 2009), threatening the client would only lead to counter effective and confront the client to be defensive. The rehabilitation center is trying to set a goal by attempts to make the drug abusers not taking drugs anymore and move back drugs abusers to society normally. Every drug abusers would treat as only deviant behavior, once they do not take drugs anymore, they could become the same as everyone. Advantages of treatment and rehabilitation programmes It is obvious that the rehabilitation programmes have various advantages which are stay away from drugs, strengthen the confidence of drug abusers and have high elasticity of the programmes. Stay away from
There is another type of civil commitment which is considered least restrictive because it is on an outpatient basis. Assisted Outpatient Treatment (AOT) is a court-ordered treatment for individuals with severe mental illness and is designed to assistant in obtaining or maintaining treatment.
There are many teenagers in the United States who are being charged life without parole in adult prison for crimes such as: involvement in a murder, second degree murder, first degree murder, and involuntary murder. Most people believe that when it comes to a juvenile murdering someone, they should be put in prison for life and tried as adults because it’s better for everyone in the situation. It’s understandable that adults believe teens know right from wrong even though their brains aren’t fully developed. Although they could be right, it’s proven that the majority of juveniles who are admitted to the adult system tend to develop mental disorders and are found to become more aggressive because of their surroundings, as a teenager myself, I believe there are other ways other than punishment for life for
In fact, according to a chart done by Prospect.org, the majority (52%) of inmates in federal prison are there because of drug related victims. Also, 53% of the inmates in state prison are there because of violent crime. This leads me to believe that what really needs to be addressed is violence and drugs. Although violence is hard to control, there is something being done about the drug epidemic that is increasingly growing. The United States’ drug epidemic is much more intense compared to other countries, including developed and non-developed countries.
For the most part, individuals with a severe mental illness are not violent and thus, placing gun restraints on everyone with a severe mental illness would not target the correct subgroup that would most likely conduct violence (McGinty et al., 2013). Another concern about banning weapons from people with severe mental illness is that the policies cause the population to develop harmful ideas about individuals with severe mental illness (McGinty et al., 2013. Consequently, people with severe mental illness do not go into treatment (McGinty et al., 2013). Misconceptions about severe mental illness are not the only contributors to stigma; labels can also have a large effect on how the general population feels about those with severe mental
Witnesses maintained that Willis had acted suspiciously; he moved his car out of the yard, and didn’t show “any emotion,” as one volunteer firefighter put it. Authorities also wondered how Willis could have escaped the house without burning his bare feet. Fire investigators found pour patterns, puddle configurations, and other signs of arson. The authorities could discern no motive for the crime, but concluded that Willis, who had no previous record of violence, was a sociopath—a “demon,” as the prosecutor put it. Willis was charged with capital murder and sentenced to death.
