This could be racist or discriminatory in nature, but it doesn’t provide adequate information to formulate a police officer is racists, but it does prove there should be more education and training within the academy level and more on-the-job (OJT) being performed once an officer arrived at their first department. The criminal justice system is not perfect and there is definite room for improvement on how the system treats minorities. Accomplishing this requires a collaboration with many law makers to ensure police officers are being properly trained to recognize the difference between performing their duties based on the situation of the crime being committed instead of performing their duties because the color of a person’s
This helps out with public relations and will strengthen the trust in the police during dark times and times of need. Community policing can make better relations between the police and citizens of the area. We should focus on community policing because “Law enforcement agencies often suffer from image problems. At worst, the public views them as authoritarian and paramilitaristic, quick to use force, and slow to admit mistakes. At best, citizens do not really know their local law enforcement officers.
There is not proven way to eliminate racial profiling, however, educating, facts, and better training are ways to help eliminate some of the causes of racial profiling. These tool help to keep the criminal justice system to performing their duties in a biased manner. If the criminal justice system is not operated bias, then, there is a better chance that the individual will not be accused or profiled based on race alone. This gives every community equality. This is a start to ending racial
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).
For modern police officers this an important principle, this is not always followed and not following this principle causes many unnecessary tragedies and conflicts. This principle should be used by the general public as well, in case of an incident, to only use self-defense if absolutely necessary. The seventh principle of peel is a really important for everyone to remember. This principal helps people understand that there is not much difference between the public and officers. The principal explains that the police are the public and the public are the police, the only difference is that police are payed and make it their full-time duty for modern police officers and public this is important for people to remember because of big divide between the
Sandy Banks is bothered by the injustice of police officers towards possible innocent victims. Because it seems like if officers rely on shooting at people as their safest option, Banks demands better training to help solve this issue. Police officers being caught on camera doesn 't changes the fact that the victim will become wounded, or pass away, yet, in most cases officers are not held accountable for the insensible act. In her article, "Horrific videos aren 't solving police shootings, but better training might" Banks asks for better training for police officers, as she developed strong pathos with details, great logos with logical solutions and consequences, but a weak ethos by not mentioning her credentials and the other side of the story.
One example of institutionalized racism that was demonstrated in 13th is the mass incarcerations of minorities. I think it is a problem not only because there is a disproportionate amount of minorities but also because people do not realize this is happening. It is institutionalized racism because after being in prison these minorities cannot vote or get a job and therefore puts them at a disadvantage. I think getting people to realize this problem is the first step to address it but I am not sure what should happen next.
I think many Americans think that there is a problem with the black person whom was killed by the police, rather than the officer who actually murdered the person. Many people, like myself, believe that police officers do not always get in trouble when situations like police racism or brutality happen. They do not think about getting in trouble because most of them literally don 't at all. When cops get caught for illegal actions they are just going to get in trouble by there own friends on the force, just to be put on paid leave. Not being caught is a big issue and is mainly why cops think that they can do whatever they want and completely get away with it.
General issues of police forces. The importance of public image to the organization An unfavorable image can affect how the police perform their duties (Goldsmith, 2003): citizens are reluctant to address the police in problematic situations (Davis & Henderson, 2003; Tyler, 2006), to voluntary cooperate with the police forces (Huq, Tyler & Schulhofer, 2011; Tyler & Fagan, 2008) or to positively respond to the various police requests (Bradford & Jackson, 2010; Jackson, Hough, Bradford, Hohl & Kuha, 2012). The more so, in terms of the general public there is no "effective or real police action " that can be separated from the image people hold on the police activity (Salmi, Voeten & Keskinen 2000 ). In addition, in the absence of a favorable image we cannot talk about a consented police act (Goldsmith, 2005). Studies have shown that the perception of police legitimacy has a major influence on the citizens’ behavior and their compliance to authority and law in general (Paternoster, Bachman, Brame, & Sherman, 1997), being connected also to crime rate (LaFree, 1998; Tyler,
I did the math and it shows that the average wage of black men and women are 56% LESS than the average wage of a white man. This is s really bad and it shows how messed up society can be when it comes to both race and gender. Our community is diverse, there are over 2000 ethnic groups to be classified in and the fact that you just want to associate yourself with one will socially isolate you from the rest of the world. “Bhineka
However, in realization, there is no training program that can automatically change one’s attitudes and views, but the appropriate education and training, coupled with effective monitoring and enforcement strategies, can help encourage positive behavior from law enforcement officers, another problem is how minorities groups are discriminated- officers target minorities for traffic stops for an arrest of minorities, lack of understanding of diverse culture with the lack of established policies that support diverse policing and disrespect human rights (King, 2014) and diversity is critical to the recruiting mission, and an agency must be aggressive in their hiring practices, as every agency is looking to have a police force reflective of their respective communities. Have feelers out in the community and use community members on hiring interview boards. This increases buy-in and demonstrates an agency’s commitment to the community. Recruit and select officers who identify and bond with the agency culture (organizational fit), who are compatible with and capable of achieving organizational goals, and who understand community demographics. If officers bond with the agency and the community, they are more likely to be effective and maintain
I feel that a lot of people are pretty hesitant when it comes to relying on private policing as many people find it more conventional just to call the police and their insurance company should something go wrong. Why would they want to hire someone who may not carry any loyalty to the company when they can instead just have someone monitor some cameras or to just install some alarms and barricades. This is the kind of question I feel that PSGs have to overcome if they want to establish their
The job of the police officers is to protect all citizens from any threat and help us to be safe on the streets. Stop and frisk is a practice that the New York City Police Department uses as a way to fight crime, however, stop and frisk is unjust and has resulted in racial discrimination by officers, as well as an abuse of power. Over the years many civilians have been stopped and frisked by the police, this irritates some people as they feel they are stopped purposely or for no reason. So can police frisking in some cases go too far? Police are not able to put you down on the streets without reason, to stop someone on the streets the police have to see something suspicious about a crime that has been or is going to be committed.
It causes one to question what the next move is for these juveniles. When put into this situation, many juveniles turn to the men and women who they know will give them the security they need: gangs. While many would argue that this is not the first avenue for security they would take, it is noted that these youths grow up in communities where the subcultures are vastly different than that of other communities. For example, the police may not be seen as protectors of the neighborhood, rather an arm of the government that wishes to oppress. Many would agree that the social disorganization theory gives a better understanding as to why juveniles transition into gangs.
If that part of town has more crime but just happened to have more minority figures in it should it be considered racial profiling? No. The article states, “Such departments will be reluctant to use analytical tools, such as geographic mapping, to identify areas in need of more attention if this elicits adverse media publicity.” If policemen are scared to do their job because the public might rebel then something is wrong.
