you, are you will to answer my questions without an attorney present? (Gardner & Anderson, 2013) One of the biggest controversies surrounding Miranda warnings is that it has caused great difficulty to law enforcement officer’s efforts in controlling crimes. At times, it now appears that are police officers have their hands tied in things that they can and can’t do while at a crime scene. Another controversial issue with the Miranda warnings is whether or not they should be given to terrorists. With the many recent terrorists attacks that have occurred over the years, the debate of whether non Americans should be read Miranda warning is a controversy that has raged on.
Many police officers get off easily because they call it as self-defense, but it’s not. People being brutally beaten or killed, riots breaking out, mourning of neighborhoods, lawsuits against police departments all can be at stake of police officers using excessive force. This is part of the reason our country has been in an uproar. In the last few years’ police brutality has been at an all-time high. Because of it, movements have been started and protests have broken out.
But, whether the shooting was justified and self defense or not, people simply don't buy it. They riot and call the police liars, refusing to believe multiple coroners reports and witnesses testimony. The media spreads controversy and reports on select stories often times while having only a little information, spreading lies and mistrust. It has become very clear that something needs to change fast, but what can be done? I strongly believe that requiring every police officer across the
In the documentary The Release it was saddening to see what happens to prisoners who have been diagnosed with mental illnesses. These people have committed serious crimes but even while they have committed these serious crimes we should set out to help these people and look more into the reasons why they have committed these crimes. Watching the film showed and proved with many of the cases that prison is not a place for the mentally ill. While many of the mentally ill offenders were imprisoned and while there they have gotten medications they needed, they need more than just that. In the prisons they destroy themselves due to not getting the help they need which makes it not a place for people with mental illnesses.
DANIEL COLON CJA 301 MODULE 2 CASE TRIDENT UNIVERSITY The Miranda rights have been established to provide suspected criminals their rights upon being arrested. By being read these rights, the criminals know what they are entitled to, such as the right to remain silent and to obtaining an attorney (Prentzas, 2005). However, in recent years many terrorist suspects have not been read these rights and it has come to the point that many people, lawmakers and officials believe that they should not be entitled to the rights that are drawn out in the Miranda warnings. As these terrorist suspects are innocent until proven guilty, are no different than any other criminals, and have the Fifth and Sixth Amendments backing them up, they should be guaranteed the rights given by the Miranda warnings. The Miranda rights are essentially police warnings given to criminal suspects in custody and at times, before arrest, in the United States of America.
Since young, we were told by family and friends that sex is a sensitive topic to discuss. But why should it be? By avoiding this topic, we’re reducing the awareness of the general public about sex and its current main issue - sexual violence. According to the World Health Organization, sexual violence is defined as any attempt of sexual acts, unwanted sexual comments or advances directed to a person’s sexuality using coercion. This issue has been one of the most underreported issues around the world and could affect everyone regardless of gender, age, and status.
Sexual assault and abuse can have devastating impacts. Sexual assault is undesired sexual act by person which lead the partner to feel uncomfortable during the relationship. It contains: • forced sexual behavior like rape • stalking, human trafficking and exhibitionism • forcing someone to act humiliating sexual behavior by force These three types of violence are different levels of abuse, with much more kinds of violence which can’t be listed, all of them are damaging in their own ways (Domestic violence statistics 2017). Finally, and the most important point, is how to prevent family violence in our community. The first step if you know someone is being hurt, you should talk to them and tell them that you’re concerned about their safety, ask them to talk about what’s happening with them, let them know that what’s happening is a crime and it’s not their fault.
Moreover not all cases are reported, many victims are still enduring the atrocities of their abuser. In Mauritius, when a case is reported to the police, the first action taken is to talk with the perpetrator, this might lead to more disastrous consequences. The abuser might become more violent, sometimes it causes more harm than good. If an abuser continues to be violent the case is reported to the Family Protection Unit. The Family Protection Unit provides more counselling services,.
The Inspector of Police , The record that came up before the court, it said that the child sexual abuse being a taboo in India, even if the child brings it to the knowledge of the parents or the parents come to know anyhow, they try to hide the matter as they think talking about it or lodging a complain shall bring a shame to their family. This sense of false esteem, pushes the child towards the feeling of being unloved or unsupported. The sexual abuse is not only a physical pain, it constitute a mental pain as well which can haunt a person for lifetime. So in such a situation, if the victims are made to feel like that it is a shame to them for what has happened rather than taking an appropriate action, not only encourages the abuser to repeat the crime, but also makes the children emotionally detached from their parents. This is an act of failure of parental responsibility by not providing adequate support to the children at the time of their need, when they are totally dependent on
Is the US Police department creating an environment in where it is allowed to use police force wrongly? I would agree. In most cases along with many documentaries, alleged crimes like these are not always adequately addressed by the Justice Department, sometimes even being shrugged off by the system. In simpler words I feel as if this is almost unfair. For those who might not know what this familiar, yet almost unrecognizable crime among officers is simpler terms is when the authorities abuse of their power, causing grave problems throughout the different communities across the country to which must be Immediately addressed by the system.
Since both the frisk and search was not reasonable or lawful, under the Fourth Amendment, this would be considered a violation and such evidence seized from Christina should be suppressed. The danger that would result if the court decided against my arguments is that there would be more police brutality. Although the concern that correlates with public safety is that there would be high crime rates, we need to find a way to balance public safety and an individual’s freedom. More often than not in today’s society, police officers are over using their power and often get away with it. As a result, people of color or Latinos are often the ones who suffer, since they are the targets.
One of the most recent controversial topics sweeping the nation is on the topic of police brutality. Victims of police abuse tend to state that their rights had been violated. As a result, usually if there had been a violation of an individual’s rights, then the evidence seized by the police against that person becomes admissible. However, the idea of punishment for police officers who violate the rights of the people was never implemented into the Constitution. This concept was created by the Supreme Court through many cases.
We do not hear about these cases near as much, because sometimes these cases are never really brought to light (Stewart, Police Brutality). Police brutality is a huge problem in this world today and we need to take it very seriously, body cameras have been promoted as a solution to the police misconduct problem. Some examples of police taking their authority too far is Michael Brown killed in Ferguson, and Erik Garner killed in Staten Island (funk, New york times). These cases could have been support a lot better in court and kept everyone true to their word if body cameras would have been in the picture, the families could be relieved in knowing what actually happened in that incident and the case could have been put to rest a lot sooner than they were. Studies show that use of force complaints were decreased by 75 percent once the use of body cameras was put into play (scheindlin, pg 1).
The difference with this particular accident was that it obviously was damaging enough to be published in a newspaper. By preponderance of the evidence against Mr. B he is guilty of elder neglect. According to the scenario, some psychologists might think that Dr. Y may be acting too early because no one has been harmed yet. Although, just because a someone has not been harmed yet does not justify that someone will not yet get hurt. One question for these psychologists would be: when should
