CYBER CRIME Cybercrime is one of the fastest growing type of crime in our society today and have also been a serious problem since it causes a lot of damages and also affect us in different ways. But before I go further let me start by telling you the meaning of cybercrime, Cybercrime is different and more heinous than normal crime that we know. This crime is committed in an electronic medium and here means read is not a requirement and is done in secret Feldman(2013). Cyber war takes place largely in secret, unknown to the general public of crimes include pornography, cyber fraud, defamation, cyber stalking, harassment, IPR theft, data hostage, money laundering, phishing, e-mail bombing, cyber war, illegal monitoring. Secondly let me talk about the effect of cybercrime in our society today.
Science and technology has made many mistakes before and can make man more in the future. When we talk about branding young children as criminals we let technology choose the path we take which has no room for improvement or life changing moments people can go through to change. Technology will be even less compassionate than ever before and If we continue to go on this path technology will choose if we get to live our lives free or be in constant surveillance. This is what the future will bring if we don’t fight the war against dehumanizing technology. Most of the time it is not even our faults because the government never tells anyone what their plans are.
The principle explains that police should use only the amount of physical force necessary to restore order and protect public if using warning or persuasion is not working on an individual. This is important because it is not ok for anyone to use physical force in not completely necessary. If using physical force is not required, then it should always be avoided. Although, if an officer must use physical force than it should be the least amount necessary to protect the individual and surrounding public. For modern police officers this an important principle, this is not always followed and not following this principle causes many unnecessary tragedies and conflicts.
Proponents on the use of phones argue that phones provide a safe space for people to spread and share positivity. However, in our generation cell phones are a place where people hide behind screens and hurt others, through cyber bullying, hacking and even online stalking. These acts have caused cell phones to ruin our generation. Phones have been used to dehumanize others through the act of cyberbullying, causing a variety of mental health issues. For example, in the article “Cyber Bullying: Just as Bad, Maybe Even Worse¨ the author Alicia Jones states,¨Cyber bullying can be very damaging to adolescents and teens.
The Fourth Amendment is “the right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause.” In other words, it is against the law for police to search any person without probable cause and an issued warrant. (Cartoon Surveillance) This protects the privacy of the innocent people that may not be considered guilty. However, giving the people a right to a warrant is only giving them an advantage, while the police and the government have a disadvantage. Issuing warrants take away time and privilege for police. Needing a warrant may unable police to some investigations as well.
The government has many tools in looking into people's information but the government doesn't realize that it is violating the 4th amendment by using the resources they have in looking into suspected people and that's the reason why we cannot trust our information to be safe with the government either way. David Cole, a lawyer who teaches constitutional law and national security at Georgetown University, and other legal analysts says that, “The world of computers has weakened the Fourth Amendment. "In the modern digital age, it means very, very little."(citation). The reason why he says this is because, before we had computers, no one knew who we were seeing or where we were going throughout the day, but if someone were to know they would have to wiretap our things to know. If the fourth amendment was follow the police would need a warrant to do that but in today's world we wouldn't need it anymore.
But while numerous parents may feel allayed about their teens’ seeming uninterested in drinking, driving and dating, they could perhaps be overlooking the effects that continuous internet access has on their teens’ mental well-being. In the article “Have Smartphones Destroyed a Generation?”, Jean M. Twenge compares iGen to previous generations. The smartphone and social media define “iGen”, the generation born between 1995 to 2012. Twenge accuses smartphones for sleep deprivation, anti-socialization, courtship, sexual activities, and poor mental health. The omnipresence of the smartphone affects adolescents in every section of the United States, regardless of social class and ethnic background.
In today’s modern world, technology has revolutionized how we communicate, but it also empowers aggressors to easily harass victims. No contact orders prohibit defendant from initiating both direct contact, such as through texting or emailing, but also indirect contact with the victim. Keep in mind that a manipulative abuser may use their children, friends or family to convey messages. No contact orders now prohibit communication through social media platforms such as Twitter and Facebook. Overall, criminal orders are important legal tools that courts and law enforcement use to keep potential victims safe and potential aggressors at
To remedy this reality, and get closer to the ideal mentioned above, the Court required police to advise defendants of their rights to remain silent and to an attorney. In theory, this advisement levels the playing field and dispels the inherent coercive nature of custodial interrogation. When do Miranda Rights Have to be Given? Because the purpose of Miranda Rights is to dispel the inherent coercive nature of custodial interrogation, they are only given during custodial interrogation. This means that statements obtained while out of custody, or while in custody but not interrogated can be used against the suspect.
It is oblivious that most of us fail to realise the power of words when it comes to hurting people. We tend to think that words that are jokes to us have no effects on the party which accepts those words. In fact, what we say might be a sword which makes a person flounder and struggle. Today I say to you that with such occurrence disturbing the society, we can never enjoy peace and serenity. So, now it is the time we work hand in hand together to eliminate cyber bullying issue which has shown an increasing trend over the years.
According to Google cyberbullying is defined as the “use of electronic communication to bully a person, typically by sending messages of an intimidating or threatening nature”. Cyberbullying is a form of assault in which teens damge their peers. Cyberbullying can be both mentally and emotionally destructive. Should cyberbullying be a federal crime? Some believe that cyberbullying is a disease and has led to teen suicide; while others argue that is should not be a federal crime, and that it is unconstitutional.
In addition, when the law enforcement believes searching a citizen is reasonable, no excessive force shall be used. Electronic surveillance is also under the Fourth Amendment, so the law enforcement cannot watch you with any type of electronics of any sort. Furthermore, your personal items: backpack, house, or phone are considered your property so the law enforcement can search any of them without the citizen’s permission or proved as reasonable. Although of all of the advantages of the Fourth Amendment, a disadvantage is that for the law enforcement it makes accumulating evidence
Social media is now a major outlet for bullying. Bullying has always been a problem, but not until the twenty-first century has it been on something that isn’t reality: the internet. Bullies can do things online like name calling, gossiping, or posting embarrassing or personal pictures. This is easier for bullies because it is behind a screen, they don’t have to see what harm they are causing by bullying online. It is the main form of bullying in 2016.
“Verizon in a rising level of cyber-attacks through cell phone, and internet usage. Employees hacking other employees big companies getting hacked. How on earth can we trust employees and workers if bad things are going on with them and the company. If they want to know what we are doing they should just ask us the next time we pay or buy anything instead of hacking us. Its more money out of our own pockets having to pay for the damages.
With all the technologies that man has given us, we should be able to stop these kinds of crimes right? Technology has not stopped the expansion of child slavery and child exploitation, but has helped it grow to new heights. Around 63% of all the child sex slaves where were sold on the internet as 2010. Sex slavery is not the only thing, but child slavery as well. There are millions of websites that offer these horrific services found all over the internet not just on the darknet.An example of a website that offers these horrendous crimes would be backpage.com a website that can be used to solicit sex and drug.
