Race, Class, and Incarceration The main goal of the U.S. law enforcement has been to make the world a safer place but in the process of making the world a safer and “better” place there have been quite some downfalls. One of those many downfalls would have to be the American prison system. In today’s society police enforcement has given so much focus on prosecuting street crime while failing to acknowledge white-collar crime and other major crimes that occur every day.
People, like Amanda Collins, argue that with guns on campus students will be able to stop criminal activates such as rape. Ms. Collins, a survivor of rape, states that if students were allowed to carry a gun, her own incident and “two other rapes would have been prevented and three young lives would have been saved.” I agree that in her situation guns may have helped her; however, even in her situation having a gun is not the best defensive approach. These criminals, who avoid strict law enforcement while committing these crimes, will also find a way to prevent the victim from using their gun while attacking them. This situation will leave the victims just as helpless.
She was tired of being treated differently so she decided to break the law so she could be treated equally. This inspired people and associations to protest and to try to put a stop to these laws. Some people break the law by stealing so they can provide food, clothing, or shelter to themselves or for their family.
During the investigation, police are narrowing down an area of suspects that the offender was a left-handed person. It is because the CCTV displayed that the person who commit the bank robbery is holding a gun with the left-hand. Then, police narrowed down the area of suspects, Tsui Po was not a suspect in the crime area so that police cannot arrest the offender as soon as possible. But, this does not imply that profiles should be ignored or should never be used by police again, but that profiling should be approached with caution. Criminal profiling should not be blindly accepted or should not be relied on because it may be something that may not have any relationship to the real
The NPD proved to be eminently suited for that study, on account of several factors, including: first, it had adopted Compstat since the year 1997 (Yüksel, 2015, p. 112). Second, it was not averse to the conduct of interviews. Third, the NPD was large in size, had a substantial amount of crime, was quite similar to the New York Police Department (NYPD), and it had experienced significant reduction in crime rates, subsequent to the implementation of Compstat (Yüksel, 2015, p.
Besides the articles about the new amendments for alcohol-fuelled violence, the media also focused on assaults that were occurring in Kings Cross, as well as defending businesses who would lose money from the law reform. As a result of the media, the issue of alcohol-fuelled violence has successfully spread everywhere, which has influenced the government to introduce and amend many laws, strongly reducing alcohol-fuelled assaults in
Your lack of knowledge about firearms might show that a fear of lawful firearms owners rules your thinking. That is unfortunate, because not all of us live within five blocks of a police station that is just chomping at the bit to answer a call for assistance when a home invader is trying to kill you, or an armed robber has cornered you. My response to danger to myself and my family is the ability to defend us immediately, not 15 minutes later when the police arrive to take pictures of my corpse & crime scene. You are free to do it your way and I wish you no harm, but I dare you to put a "No Firearms Here" sign on your front lawn...how long do you think it will be before the knife-wielding thug comes thru your front door with bad intentions? Are you going to outlaw knives next?
People may think this helps the police when it comes down to solving a crime, yet it fenders them tremendously. Majority of the time a race is singled out depending on the crime that was committed, while the police are looking for a specific race this gives the suspect time to get away, or even blend in with the crowd and act as if they are victims or bystanders. Clegg mentions “Some would argue that racial profiling is perfectly rational and ought therefore to be unobjectionable. The argument is that a disproportionate amount of street crime is committed by people who are young, and male, and black, and if you are all three then it makes perfect sense for the police to keep an especially keen eye on you, and pull you over more often, question you more carefully, and press you more aggressively to allow a search of your car. That is, it makes perfect sense if all the police are trying to do is maximize in the short term the number of their successful searches and arrests.”
Presumably many misfortunes could have been avoided in the movie had Quincy, Raheem, and Steel not followed Bishop’s plan to rob the store or had one of them taken action after the incident. The crew’s conversation before robbing the store goes as follows “everybody got their gloves? Yeah, man. Ol' man Quiles is in there by himself. Let's do this.”
(Sifferlen, 1991) The landmark cases pertaining to protective sweeps are Chimel v. California and Buie v. Maryland, which establish limitations when performing protective sweeps (Sifferlen, 1991). In Chimel v. California the police executed an in-home arrest warrant, and during their search incident to arrest, they had Chimel’s wife open up dresser drawers revealing evidence of the burglary without a search warrant (Hall, 2015). This type of search was exceeded the intent of protecting police from harm and therefore was proclaimed unconstitutional (Hall, 2015). Additionally, in Maryland v. Buie an officer seized a red running suit utilized in an armed robbery, however the officer initiated a protective sweep of the home because there were still outstanding offenders from the robbery (Sifferlen, 1991). Maryland v. Buie balances officer safety versus the intrusiveness of the search under the Fourth Amendment by limiting police to scope of a protective sweep to places large enough for a person to hide (Sifferlen, 1991).
“As government, we don’t protect crimes but we have to ensure the lives of people are defended. Mob justice is never allowed and the police did the right thing. The residents should come with the evidence so that they help us prosecute them. As much as they were rescued from the site, we need more evidence,” he
