This trend of sensationalizing violent crime should stop. The media should also dedicate some of its attention to other types of crime and bring awareness of other issues that surround the society. Verifying reports on violent crimes is not an easy task since not all incidences of crimes are reported to the police. The police data would not always reflect the actual numbers. It is worth noting that fear of violent crime is greater today than in the past.
“Threats to freedom of speech, writing and action, though often trivial in isolation, are cumulative in their effect and, unless checked, lead to a general disrespect for the rights of the citizen (Orwell).” George Orwell was an outspoken American author, whose most famous work, 1984, showed how a world of surveillance was harmful to not only individual citizens but also society as a whole. If the government was to monitor internet content to a deep extent, such as collecting emails/communications, tracking people’s web history, or restricting what we, the citizens of the US, say, we would move one step closer to the world Orwell imagined in 1984. The United States government has no business in monitoring or restricting internet content, except
Many may insist that the Yakuza are criminals as they pursue money and power through the ways of any crime gangs anywhere. They do drug-dealing, smuggling, prostitution, gambling, and protection rackets. (Andrew Rankin, 2012) As such, people may have commonly defined the Yakuza as purely evil because they have caused a negative impact on the society over the years due to their notorious activities. However, this can also be argued because it also definitely true that the Yakuza has brought about many positive impacts on Japan’s society as well. These positive impacts were definitely overshadowed by all the negative impacts.
We are all in danger of being a victim of a White Collar Crime. Since studying this topic for the last two months I was shocked and kind of scared on how we are all at risk. It is not everyday that we hear about white-collar crimes but these non-violent crimes are on the rise. Within reading (Source 1) Understanding White-Collar Crime by Michael Benson it was first defined by sociologist Edwin Sutherland in 1939 as "a crime committed by a person of respectability and high social status in the course of his occupation.” A white-collar crime is a nonviolent crime committed usually for financial benefit. However crimes are particularly hard to track, and technology today is making it even harder.
This won’t destroy it particularly but it will destroy its beauty, the life on Earth. Each year terrorist attacks and corruption are taking the lives of thousands. Even in this the only reason it has evolved is no one taking strict actions against this. Despite the government being corrupt, we could do something. Why just read the newspaper and pass comments on how corrupt the government is.
White-collar crimes refer to a large range of frauds committed by business or government officials. These crimes are usually financially driven and non-violent, but it is not victimless. White-collar crimes can still destroy a company; harm family relations and cost money to individuals who are not involved in the incident. According to the Federal Investigation of Bureau (2015), this term was first introduced in 1939; as crimes committed by individuals who are trusted and obtain high position in his/her occupation. Common white-collar crimes in Hong Kong include fraud, money laundering and embezzlement etc.
It is easy to understand that emotion, imagination and other ways of knowing will hardly solve any ethical dilemma. For instance, let's say the criminal or investigating cases that occur every day around the world. For example, sexual assault/misconduct has been the highlights of news stories in the US, Identifying criminals through emotional, imagination, faith,and intuition, is just morally wrong. Some recent cases of sexual assault accusations/misconduct were our former president Donald Trump was accused of multiple charges of convicting
Many fictional novels have been written based on the possibility of dystopian futures in which a corrupt government rules over the world, its citizens oblivious to the suffering said government inflicts. Most of the time readers take these dystopian worlds as folly; impossible outcomes writers could only conjure up in the deepest recesses of their imagination. However, these works of fiction are truer to life than one might expect. To people’s resentment, government corruption is very real and very concerning problem in life for several reasons. As a matter of fact, when people living in the United States were asked, "To what extent do you think that corruption is a problem in the public sector in this country?"
Lobbying targeting and chasing our governments for their own priorities, not anyone else's. Then there’s bribery and the corrupt politicians who take the money and keep it for themselves and blame others for their actions. Luckily, some government officials know and make the right decision of how to combat and curb corruption which surrounds them. Finally, the people who live in these countries find and question their governments, rather than listen to Big Brother. The clear, simple, and easiest call to remove this pandemic is to stand up and just say “No.” Protesting corruption can ultimately resolve the issue and repair the damaged system.
The uneducated have more criminal cases against them, as do those who are in the 36-45 age group”. “It is fashionable to deride politicisation of criminals, especially when correlations (which don’t necessarily indicate causation) suggest that to be successfully elected as an MP, one should have criminal connections and money, with education perhaps a disadvantage”, he adds. And agrees that some candidates are “accused and not convicted because of warts in the criminal justice system”, he writes. These comments are relevant in any discussion about the criminal charges faced by our sitting Lok Sabha members. Criminalization of Indian politics has made the lives of common people worse than it used to be in British rule, even after 60 years of
