Additionally, gang members nowadays become addicted to their own drugs they supply. Such addiction follows by behavior that makes them commit violent offenses. According to Matthew O’Deane “a major concern is that illegal drugs are one of the primary causes of gang violence offenses in our society. Violence occurs in connection with drugs and gangs owing to the fact that users under the influence commit violent crimes because of the effects of the substance, or users commit violent crimes to get money for drugs” (Gangs and Drugs). In my neighborhood, I personally knew situations equivalent to O’Deane’s thesis.
The party felt as though inflicting pain will make the victim regain obedient.‘Exactly. By making him suffer. Obedience is not enough. Unless he is suffering, how can you be sure that he is obeying your will and not his own? Power is in inflicting pain and humiliation.”(336) This quote relates to present time because this theory supports why police officers today assault victims.
Harris works and lives in the inner-city streets where the drug dealers overrun the city. Harris’ personal beliefs and sense of justice are a result of his life experiences with criminals and drug dealers. His ideas of justice and sense of right and wrong coupled with the social factors of drugs and crime in his community contribute to Harris’ unethical conduct. For instance, the temptations are always present in the circumstances when raiding any drug dealer activity. Drug dealers possess a lot of money and drugs, such as the Training Day movie, in which money and drugs influence Harris, so he acts criminalized.
Because of sensationalized murder, the upper class began to worry about the affects of sensationalized murder on juveniles and a moral panic ensued. According to Cohen, a moral panic is registered as a threat to the established order and results in public hysteria. This happened when the upper class became concerned with the effects of Penny Dreadfuls on juvenile society. A Penny dreadful is similar to the modern television series with each publication representing an episode in the saga. According to Flanders, Penny dreadful found success with stories of true crime, especially murder.
Trujillo gets worried when he learns about the 14th of June Movement because he knows that the goal of the movement is to overthrow or kill him. One by one, he starts jailing members of the movement, as well as ransacking or destroying their homes. At Patria’s house, Trujillo has the SIM tear “...the house apart, hauling away the doors, windows, the priceless mahogany beams of Pedrito’s old family rancho” (Alvarez 192). The way that he messes with those involved in the movement is cruel. After having their homes ransacked, Trujillo jails only the Mirabal husbands, which makes the sisters think they are safe.
Second is Oliverotto of Fermo, who also became a military commander and killed citizens amid feast with the assistance of his troopers who later terrorized the city for submission. These kinds of acts what Machiavelli pertains to as criminal means. He argued that these cruel acts, though evil, maybe be justified if done at once to build a prince's power and then swung to the regale of his people. Moreover, the prince having attained the principality is required to live with his subjects and should do all the injuries at once, if not, it is no longer acceptable. This second argument resembles Machiavelli's famous phrase “the end justifies the means”, showing that he approves bad behavior as long as at the end it will turn
Some mobs would harass and assault merchants that did not comply. The cousin of Sam, Mr. John Adams represented the soldiers and helped them get off with manslaughter. They were sent back to England and branded. This especially enraged Bostonians.They were enraged because they thought the soldiers were murders and rotten cowards. Yet in some ways the won by getting the troops out of Boston.
Gangs in the United States Gangs have been a part of the United States culture since the beginning of our nation. They are an organized group of criminals who defend their turf and mark the streets and territory with graffiti (Stark 15). Most gang members wear color bandanas in order to represent their gang and to create an identity. Today, gang violence is a huge problem in America because it creates homicides and violence crimes. There is also a problem regarding the reason why young people join gangs.
By his late twenties he became involved with another drug lord, Miguel Angel Felix Gallardo, who was the founder of the Guadalajara cartel. Guzman quickly became the most powerful and dangerous drug trafficker in Mexico due to Gallardo’s arrest. Guzman inherited some of Gallardo’s territory which led to him becoming the founder of his own cartel known as the Sinaloa Cartel. (Aldrich, 2017) The Sinaloa Cartel mainly operated in the Mexican state of Chihuahua, the Western District of Texas, and other states in Mexico and the United States. The gang consisted of several members who engaged in criminal activities such as money laundering, murder, kidnapping, and bribery.
They go to high school and college campuses, the mall, and many other places to fill in their recruitment (Carter). The pimps often go after people who are emotionally and economically unstable and are looking for ways to make more money, or are trying to get more attention by someone who “cares” for them. Johns are the ones who make the crime grow; they lure young people, and lock people into the business. Pimps are the main coordinators about what is being done with the victim, to where a new pimp is buying the victim off of the old one, like they are an object. Being involved in sex trafficking is one of hardest things to recover from.
Chester and his friend were members, but they messed up when they talked about their gang’s inner workings. They were set up by their gang by placing a guy for them to kill and get arrested. This is how MS-13 keeps its order, by creating examples out of people. Even though Chester and his friend were not killed, he still faced punishment for his act of betrayal. The other type of control would be to jump in their members.
In San Bernardino, two people massacred coworkers at a party and fled the scene, even if the police did their best, people were still upset that this happened, which is totally understandable. But if attacks like this keep happening, it could start happening more, and more, and spread to bigger cities across this once great nation. Which has been polluted with political filth like Donald Trump and Sarah Palin. Pathetic. But, point being if these situations are not halted immediately, then only more angst and anger will boil till the point of simmering off and burst into violent outrage.
As one flicks through the news, he or she may be startled or shocked to discover the sheer amount of police cruelty occurring in public space. As an extension of government, the police inherit the same powers involving public space. Although they cannot create new policies, they act to enforce the policies designed by the government. Police are often mistakenly advertised as a source of protection for citizens. However, Anderson refuses to neglect the truth: they are the villains.
Although crime existed prior to the prohibition era, it would see a new extent of the meaning throughout this time. Petty gangster began to monopolize the alcohol industry (illegally) and became millionaires by engaging in lucrative criminal operations. These criminal operations included bootlegging, speakeasies and smuggling. What was once a petty thug with little reign, now gained dominance throughout their community and managed to create a criminal empire that provides them with not only wealth, but power. This power could be seen with the merge of prohibition and the political machine in Chicago, thus creating the most notorious criminal organization in U,S, History, the mob.
He had controlled illegal alcohol trades in Chicago, including the bootleggers previously mentioned. He very well known for his acts of violence, a well-known massacre being St. Valentine’s Day massacre, which took place while prohibition was in effect. Al Capone was a representation of the falling of order and lack of respect for laws. It is kind of crazy to think of all the things Capone did, he was only put away for tax invasion. This rise of Al Capone makes me wonder how dangerous he would have become if alcohol band wasn’t in effect.
