Nevertheless, throughout it all, Arias was only able to recall minimal details from the event. Sources claim she suffered from the diagnosis post-traumatic stress disorder, but that would not make light of the state of affairs. (Pow) The presiding judge stated, “The crime was especially cruel. It involved substantial planning and preparation…
Property crime is about 1/3 out of all crimes that occur. Property crimes has include the follow crimes thefts, larceny, burglary, robbery,sort lifting, arson and vandalism. The statistic has shown that property crime have fell major about 32 percent in a ten year period. Property crime rate , “of 135 victimizations per 1,000 households in 2008 was lower than the rate of 147 per 1,000 households in 2007” and it was 248 attempted or completed property crimes per 1,000U.S. households during 1997. In 1997 the
Some days crime rates are up and then the next they are down, what we do know is that America is becoming safer. In 2005, 11,346 persons were killed by firearm violence 477,040 persons were victims of a crime committed with a firearm, (National Institute of Justice). Surprisingly, a lot of gun violence in America is related to self defense. Between 1987 and 1990 it was found that guns were used in defense during a crime incident 64,615 times annually. This equates to two times out of 1,000 incidents (0.2%) that occurred in this time frame.
While this may be true many other people might say that guns increase crime instead of decrease crime as it states, in the website called “Think Process” it states, “In 2014, there were 6,165 gun murders where the type of gun used to commit the crime is known”. While this may be true According to CNS news.com it states, “The gun homicide rate had fallen by nearly 50 percent to only 3.6 homicides per 100,000 population.” This text means that many gun homicides have increasingly fallen down and there is less than five percent of homicides per 100,000 of a population. This is another reason why you should own a
It is also called as “zero tolerance” policing. Sousa and Kelling (2006) states that the broken windows policing focuses on strict enforcement of law against disorderly behaviour and minor offenses like prostitution, public urination, and aggressive panhandling. This step is vital as it is to prevent more serious crime from happening. Skogan (1990, 1992) failed to find proof that the enforcement of broken windows policing reduced additional disorder or more serious crimes to occur. Weisburd and Eck (2004) also states that New York City uses this type of policing in 1990s and many NYC officials admitted that the crime rate dropped because of broken windows policing but many people also say that there are some other reasons for the reduction of crime rates in New York City.
You gave good pointers on your discussion post. The Great Depression was very much devastating than the 1920/21 depression even though it was horrible. The Great Depression lasted for some quiet time rather than 1920/21. Both events were put a hurt on the American economy and the government was not trusted by citizens and some political leaders. “Many economists who have studied the depression of 1920-21 have been unable to explain how the recovery could have been so swift and sweeping even though the federal government and the Federal Reserve refrained from employing any of the macroeconomic tools, public works spending, government deficits, inflationary monetary policy that conventional wisdom now recommends as the solution to economics slowdowns.”
The crime in the book Amazing Grace that Jonathan talked about was very high. There would be shootings happening everyday, murders, drug dealers selling drugs, robberies, and rape. But according to this website, dnainfo.com have said that the crime rate have declined by 71 percent between the year 1993 to 2010.
As far as I concerned, there is nothing of a so-called individual justice, but this is opposite to state certainly that social justice do not exist as well. Social justice by definition is “a concept of fair and just relations between the individual and society.” (Wikipedia). This should be broken down into smaller part that contributes to the society: individual. Individual is not born fair.
According to FBI statistics, Operation Cross Country X recovered 82 underage victims and arrested 239 perpetrators across the country In October 2016. (Zhai) If an international organization, in its largest numbers since 2016, found that many perpetrators and victims in just a small amount of time, then they can surely find more in the following years. The Spartacus III operation uncovered over 2,700 victims and made 134 arrests in South and Central America in 2016. With 25 countries involved in this operation alone, it’s no wonder all of those traffickers were caught and the victims liberated.
He examined 2285 legal intervention deaths and found that for every one million of a certain race in a population in the US there were 2.5 police killings of whites and 6.8 police killings of blacks. The clear majority of all legal intervention deaths that were recorded and analyzed for this study occurred in largely metropolitan areas. Buehler ultimately dismisses the other study because it failed to account for the likelihood of an encounter, which
One of Juneau’s most destructive slides occurred in 1936, covering South Franklin Street and killing 15 (Elizabeth, Jenkins 2015). Although deadly landslides aren’t as frequent damage to land is still a problem that the city faces. There is not a lot the city can do to mitigate the dangers. The city of Juneau focuses on preparedness and building codes and ordinances to protect citizens from another deadly
The 1930’s although beaten and bruised by World War I and the great depression America was knocked down but not out of the fight. President Franklin D. Roosevelt enacted the “New Deal” and although not very effective in pulling the economy from the toilet made some significant pushes to help out the middle class. But we all know when you are knocked down life doesn’t just stop. The 1935 hurricane season was just that. There were not many hurricanes but where they lacked in quantity they made up for in quality.
Indeed, 14% of black respondents indicate that they have been stopped by the police on three or more occasions in the past two years, compared to only 5% of white and 3% of Chinese respondents. On average, blacks experienced 1.6 stops in the past two years, compared to 0.5 stops for whites and 0.3 stops for Chinese respondents. Further analysis reveals that black males are particularly vulnerable to police stops (Table 1). One in four black male respondents (23%) indicated that they
“In 2005 the Bureau of Justice Statistics reported that juries heard 4 percent of all alleged criminal offenses brought before federal courts. State courts match this trend” (Dzur, 2013, p. 31). Legal scholars also noted that state courts over the past 30 years have dropped 15 percent when utilizing a jury for a criminal trial, while only a 10 percent drop when a judge decides the case (Dzur, 2013). These statistics are dramatically higher for civil cases (Dzur,
