The authors examined the therapeutic responses of psychopathic sex offenders (≥25 Psychopathy Checklist—Revised; PCL–R) in terms of treatment dropout and therapeutic change, as well as sexual and violent recidivism over a 10-year follow-up among 156 federally incarcerated sex offenders treated in a high-intensity inpatient sex offender program. Psychopathy and sex offender risk/treatment change were assessed using the PCL–R and the Violence Risk Scale—Sexual Offender version (VRS–SO), respectively. Although psychopathic participants were more likely than their nonpsychopathic counterparts (<25 PCL–R) to drop out, almost 75% of the former completed treatment. Psychopathic offenders who failed to complete sex offender treatment were more likely
Police Brutality is referring to the use of unnecessary or inordinate use of force from a Police officer towards a civilian. The abuse of power has resulted in chaos not only for each individual police department but the civilians fearing their lives. Employees engaging in misconduct happens daily but, in the law enforcement industry, misconduct ends in severe consequences for the general public. That reason alone makes the job of an Police officer so much more influential. Officers should be taking into consideration the magnitude of their duty and how reliant the people of America really are on their efforts.
Community correctional officers can supervise individual sex offenders with a number of different strategies. The sex offender requires certain supervisions as well as different treatments. For community correctional officers to monitor these sex offenders with personalized supervision plans there has been electronic monitoring. For those offenders who are considered “high risk” offenders there has been a near-real time monitoring, which has an active GPS and a passive GPS are used on those with a lower risk. A strategic method to help reach and treat these offenders would be to put them through different treatment programs and every sex offender requires treatment, but those more severe would then require a more serious treatment.
Nearly 21 billion people around the world are currently victims of sex trafficking. Sex trafficking is the third largest international crime industry (behind illegal drugs and arms trafficking). It reportedly generated a profit of $32 billion every year.

Women and girls represent the largest share of forced labor victims with 11.4 million sex victims.
The Epidemic of Facelessness by Stephen marche sheds light on the recurring issue of faceless communication and the disconnect between people it brings. He brings many points to support his main thought of the issue with facelessness, recorded cases of people saying threats from murder to rape things they wouldn 't ever say with a face, things that put people in prison. but for many it 's ok since they don 't actually say it or it 's said without a face. Through his findings heavy on research and internet resources he uncovers the deepest issue of facelessness, without a face to fiscally talk too not only does it make it harder to talk to real faces but it takes away emotion for communication making it hard to recognize emotion sadness and
Most greasers spent their life breaking the law, or in jail, but the gang was full of a bunch of kids that just happened to have a small amount of money, and/or bad living conditions like Johnny. Randy and Cherry were the soc outsiders. They were both sick of all the fighting that went on between the greasers and the socs. They saw greasers as people too, not just poor hoodlums, or people with lots of hair oil. They were different from everybody else, and that’s not a bad
What is the biggest cause of crime in Central America? Cocaine, is by the far that biggest factor in crime all along Central America, the external trade of cocaine along with outside governments trying to stop it, have led to organized crime and drug mafias forming within the countries of Central America. People just don’t trust the government in these areas, the criminal justice system is weak, and with so many crimes going unpunished or unnoticed that the people who are innocent in these countries, can only turn towards the gangs and mafias for protection, which in many cases leads the kids of these families into the gangs and
It is possible that society can intervene to reduce or prevent many forms of violence, but insufficient information on what are hate crimes, their effects, why does it affect us and it’s importance. Many communities are not taking the necessary steps to inform and instruct people about these violations, which is why I believe that this would make a great research topic for this class. We can use this opportunity to inform ourselves of what a hate crime entitles and what we can do to stop them. We must all work together to make stop hate crimes, because the lack of knowledge and action against these crimes is leaving groups of people feeling isolated, vulnerable and worthless. In the power-filled words that were proclaimed by Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. in the 1960’s "… we will not be satisfied until justice rolls down like waters and righteousness like a mighty stream" (Martin Luther King Jr. 1963).
Violations can stem from ethnical, racial or even gender based disparities. Yet, the social structure that is empowered to provide these rights have failed throughout history. The past has a long linage of trouble times, for example the civil rights and the women's rights movement. The trouble I speak of, is crime. Crime is basically an action that is forbidden by law.
The main cause of all these murders is drug trafficking. According to the CDC over 64,000 people died in 2016 due to drug overdose. Not only do drugs kill, but they also ruin many lives. These illegal drug manufacturers traffic it, drug trafficking affects society greatly and we are going to stop it. It is a difficult process for drug traffickers and drug lords to send their “product” to other countries.
This study examines the sex offenders while being incarcerated. Imprisoned sex offenders face ridicule because of their offense and they are the most victimized group of prisoners. This study tries to understand how these offenders try to be a part of the general prison population and how their conviction become known among the prison population. 59 interviews of formerly incarcerated men give their stories of how the sex offender passes themselves off as non-sex offenders in the prison environment.
There are many challenges faced in Sexual Assault Law. The attitudes of the public towards sexual violence are inaccurate in many cases. Sexual Assault Law is a legacy of legal process based on stereotypes and myths about women and sex. Many myths and stereotypes legally rejected continue to be invoked in trials today. The adversarial nature of the legal system can make people afraid of testifying.
“The most dangerous people. The people who violently destroy and end the most lives, are still on the outside- they are the people running banks, governments, and courtrooms and they are the people wearing military and police uniforms”. This above quote from the article really shocked me because people who have the most authority are capable of harming others. People who don’t have any sort of authority, they are being punished. The immigrants are being punished and given the worst punishments.
“ We are not moving nearly fast enough to reduce incarceration… Over 2 million Americans live caged… a 550 percent increase in the last 40 years. ” Most of the people in the world are in jail. Therefore , incarceration is not lowering due to people being imprisoned on a daily basis. Half of the people in the world commit very bad crimes , which lead them to be imprisoned. “ Rape and sexual abuse are rampant , and tens of thousands of people
This new law caused an increase from an estimated 300,000 to 2 million prison inmates over the course of the last two decades. (Michelle Alexander, 2010) According to Rebecca C. Hatey and Jennifer L. Eberhdt of Stanford University, California holds only 7% of African American population but 45% of California’s prison inmates are African American under the three strikes law. (Racial Disparities in Incarceration Increase Acceptance of Punitive Policies 2014) Michelle Alexander writes that the mass incarceration of the 1990’s created a new “racial caste system” and extreme funding for the criminal system. (Michelle Alexander, 2010:58) The three strikes law targeted the communities affluent with minority groups. At the turn of the 21st century the majority that entered the prison system were African Americans and Latinos.
