Therefore someone will always fail to abide by the rules. Punishing all of the American citizens by the MLDA being raised to 21 is not the right way to go about and promote safe driving. The United States is not the worst place for drunk driving incidents; in fact, it is one of the lowest. According to Niall McCarthy there are more dangerous roads than that of the U.S., “58% on South Africa’s roads can be attributed to alcohol consumption… In the United States, 31% of all road accidents… In the United Kingdom and Germany, road deaths involving alcohol consumption are rarer at 16 % and 9 % respectively,” (McCarthy). South Africa is one of the most dangerous countries to drive in due to traffic fatalities encouraged by alcohol.
They were located in middle class neighborhoods where there was no crime going on, therefore; it was more difficult for the police to detect their criminal activity. The police focused more outdoors in the “ghetto” neighborhoods where African American did most of their drug dealing. The study also found out that white people were less likely to be arrested even though their drug business was visible and present to police, whites were known for selling heroin and blacks for selling crack. Also, police tend to view the drug problem by only arresting people who sold crack which were African American. Although they had records of hospitals indicating that there were more deaths on heroin than crack and heroin was sold by whites.
Many criminal investigations will include computers at some point in a case. Murder and rape suspects, through a search warrant, may have their email and Internet activities analyzed to find evidence about their motives or hiding locations. Corporations investigate computers when an employee is suspected of unauthorized actions. Fraud investigations collect transaction history evidence from servers. Imagine police officers are dispatched to a domestic disturbance call.
In an article called Dimensions of the Dark Figure of Unreported Crime, Wesley Skogan describes that there are a majority of crimes that go unreported. In fact, only 28% of crimes were reported in the late 1970s in the United States of America (Skogan, 1977). According to a study the reporting of crime peaked in1990s and has reduced ever since (StatsCanada, 2014). The prime reason for this is that people are unaware that they are committing a crime or they just overlook their deed as they feel it is not severe enough to catch ant attention. It is either people are afraid of the consequences which might occur or there is simply lack of time.
Very seldom do suspects get released from jail, either through bail or personal recognizance, despite how small their crime may be. Mexico also holds many criminals in a "preventative prison" which leads to the belief that suspects are regarded "guilty until proven innocent" (Shirk, 2016). The changes also aim to offer more efficient public access to justice, for as it stands, only one in five crimes are brought forward due to a lack of confidence in the justice system (Shirk, 2016). The third main amendment addresses the various roles within the judicial system. The police, as opposed to the Prosecution, are now responsible for the whole of the investigation, including obtaining and presenting evidence (Shirk, 2016).
As discussed in the book, relatively few antigay hate crimes get reported to police even though official data imply that gays are one of the primary victims of hate crimes. LGBT people are targeted at high rates because it is not too easy for society to accept sexual relationships between people of the same sex. The curricula provide a PDF with lots of important information about bullying but it lacks statistical data that can show the percentages of individuals who experience bullying and any other type of information regarding the consequences that bullying can have on the victim. Another subject that was really interesting on this website was the “One Survivor Remembers” the story of a holocaust survivor. The Holocaust has been one of the most tragic events in history.
As Christopher Barber explains in “Domestic Violence Against Men”, “It is a taboo subject that is often ignored or trivialised by society, which means that the extent of the problem remains unknown. As a result, male victims of domestic violence may not have their health and social care needs met by healthcare professionals.” It is clear that the response to male victim cases needs vast improvement. In police response to domestic abuse, 47% of male victims were threatened with arrest and 35% were ignored by police, with only 3% of cases ending in the abusive female partner being arrested. (Barber) Police and nurses should be more adequately trained in dealing with male victim cases of domestic abuse. “Nurses are often the first health professional with whom male victims of domestic violence come into contact,” according to Barber, “It is important to listen to the victim and offer reassurance rather than ignoring or dismissing the problem… Healthcare professionals also need to be supportive, non-judgemental and address issues of dignity, privacy and confidentiality.” Since many domestic violence groups, such as shelters and support groups, are exclusive to women, men should have some way of getting help as
Banning prostitution will drive it underground and making treatment and monitoring more difficult. However, registering prostitutes makes the state involved in prostitution and does not address the health risks of unregistered prostitutes. In Australia where sex-work is active and legal. Registration of sex-work is not practiced and education campaigns have been extremely successful and the non-intravenous drug user/sex workers are among the lower HIV-risk communities in the nation. When it comes to prostitution, many are quick to judge.
Canada is often referred as one of the lowest crime rated countries in the world and it’s also considered one of the safest countries in the world, but there are crimes that often happens but they are not reported one of those crimes is sexual harassment and assault. Case law in Canada pertaining to sexual assault and harassment are not capable to act as a punishment since these laws often favoured the perpetrator because most of the victims are ashamed to speak out therefore these acts continue to be pervasive in Canada. The Ontario human rights code states that everyone has the rights to be free from sexual discrimination based on sex which includes sexual assault/harassment. However, history has shown that people have overlooked it. One of the most
Should some sex offenders be excluded from treatment? The question is particularly daunting since some studies seem to suggest that although treatment can reduce the probability of an offender committing a crime after being treated, it is impossible for adult offenders to be properly cured. An article in the Medical News Today explains that paedophilia and other sex crimes cannot be cured, and although the likelihood of an offender repeating his crimes drops forty percent after treatment, the end result of the treatment is that people are released into society who are just as likely to cause harm. Similarly, the Business Insider explains that since being a sex offender is not a medical issue it cannot be cured, and different measures can be
This concern is shared by federal, state, local government government officials, and the public. According to Siegel and Welsh (2011), an estimated 1.7 million youths, under 18 years of age, are arrested each year for committing crimes that rage from loitering to murder, and this number is expected to rise (p. 10). Additionally, more than 250,000 juveniles are arrested each year for committing a status offenses, and roughly 160,000 of these offenses are petitioned to the juvenile court (Siegel & Welsh, 2011, p. 22). A more resent statistic shows that each year, approximately 240,000 status offenses are handled by juvenile courts (Neubauer & Fradella, 2014. 475).
A majority of democrats (53%) believe the police unfairly target minorities. Only 19% of republicans agree, but I mean are you suprised. When it comes down to the statistics, many americans misinterpret the questions asked. “I don’t think these are good questions”. Stated Deere Club 1977, when he took the survey.
It is a subject that is often avoided. Domestic violence does not discriminate among race, age, or gender. Domestic violence is happening all around us. Domestic violence is one of the most under-reported and under-recorded crimes in our society (Abbot & Williamson, 1999). Domestic violence continues to be considered a major public health issue.
