There are several reasons why police officers should be required to use body cameras. The most logical argument is that body cameras can help clear police officers who are in a bad situation. Watching body cameras can reduce dishonesty in incident reports. If people watch body cameras, it will give them proven facts on misconducts and solve many crimes (Simon, Dan and Jim Bueermann). In
Although the two novels are set in different times in the twentieth century, they both depict a society where criminal activity seems to be embedded in most of their environment. For instance, in Bitter Medicine Parestky creates a complicated crime scene where various parts of society and issues are connected, some of these include the gangster criminality with Sergio, racism in the treatment of Consuelo and perhaps even Malcolm's death, and the question of abortion. In The Maltese Falcon has less various social issues, yet it does highlight the vast criminal scene existing in his city. Consequently this has implications when solving a crime as one case solved does not automatically mean a restoration in society. As Lee Horsley says: “A little

This is a problem that is nationwide, and it usually affects individuals of a disfavored race, class, or sexual orientation.
Johnson notes that the modern view of police brutality are different and have changed.

However, in the 20th century the link has become more complex sin police brutality is less linked to corruption, but corrupt cop are more likely to be working for a criminal organization that be the organizers of the crime, brutality.

Strain and Deviance: an empirical test of General Strain Theory of in a Philippine Public University LITERATURE REVIEW Theoretical Background During the past decades, various criminologists developed different theories in an attempt to explain the causes of crime within the society. In return they were successful, as of today it was adopted or accepted, indeed all of theories explain the root causes of crime. One of these theories is anomie or strain theory which originally argues that the lower class frustration to higher class causes crime (Merton, 1938) in attempt to explain why majority of the people who commits crime are lower class. In 1985 Robert Agnew a sociologist come to an interest of studying the theory and finds a potential for the theory in explaining several causes of crime in society, but due to its limitation he developed and reformulated the theory to widen its dimension or scope.

I want to make an argument that racially-motivated police brutality is unfair. Police brutality is a use of unjustified force that can cause serious injury or even death. When it comes to situations where an unarmed black man was killed by a police officer, it hits the news fast and people pay more attention.

For me it is a very exciting to learn about each case of police brutality and dive into it to see why what happened, happened. The issue seems to be so wide that it is not a clear cut yes or no issue on determining if it is a targeted act or not, which drives me to even more because it is something I can learn more about. Lastly, it seems like something that can bring people together if we can agree on a way to help fix the accidental brutality cases, but instead it does not do that which makes it even more compelling to me. I know that police brutality can either be accidental or used when a police officer is trying to defend him or herself. Another thing that I know and have observed about this issue is that it hasn’t just sprung up, but instead it has become more easily brought to our attention because of people filming these intendents and posting them on their social media pages.
