Many organized crimes have evolved from illegal immigrants, not to mention the bridge that has enabled cross-border terrorism. Having participants on both sides of the border give better intelligence to form many terrorist attacks within this country. “International fraud, money laundering and other economic crimes (particularly carried out via the Internet) are a growing problem, and one that can be expected to spread.” (Cetron & Davies, 2008) The increasing levels of cross-national crimes will raise the amount it costs for an investigation. This makes fighting these crimes significantly more expensive. There is suspicion that these immigrants will start to impose hate crimes within this
This paper will look at the reasons and effects of the increase policing of national borders. It will first of all look at terrorism and the fear that it cause to a lot of countries prompting them to be more watchful about what is entering and leaving their countries. Secondly, it will highlight other organised crimes such as human trafficking and drug trafficking as other reasons why there is increase in border controls. Thirdly, mass human migrations across national borders for various reasons in many regions throughout the world that also contributed to tighter national border controls will be highlighted. Fourthly, money laundering is another factor that contribute to the tightening of regulations related to the so-called national soft infrastructure such as banking services to deal will illegal and suspicious international monetary transactions will be discussed.
Many sociologists have different ideas on how the process of globalisation has led to changes in the amount of crimes committed and the types of crimes committed, and Item A supports this by saying that these ‘views on the impact of globalisation vary’ which shows that there are contrasting views as to whether or not globalisation has had an important impact on crime. Item A points out that some sociologists see globalisation as multi-casual and an increase in interconnectedness in the world, which refers to the fact that due to things such as new technologies, there is a massive aspect of communication in the world that has not previously been present, which ultimately means that there are now ways for people all over the world to be in touch with each other at the
There is a large profit that can result from drug trafficking, which could be one of the reasons behind the crime not always being viewed under a zero tolerance policy. The global crimes that have become some of the largest issues previously mentioned always make the implication that some sort of organized crime has occurred or is occurring. A problem that arises when organized crimes occur is that there are often “crooked” police officers who handle the law unfairly among certain suspects or criminals. Another issue in drug trafficking is that sometimes, groups of organized crimes all link to a business or business people. One other issue for drug and human trafficking crimes is border security and safety.
Assess the usefulness of subcultural theories in explaining ‘subcultural crime and deviance’ in society today. The term subcultural crime and deviance is another way of describing the violation of laws or social norms by various groups within society. These groups have been explored in depth by many sociologists and they have attempted to explain subcultural crime and deviance through the existence of deviant subcultures. Originally, the work of Merton surrounding strain theory claimed that when there was a strain between the goals of society and the means of obtaining the goals then people would turn to crime. However subcultural theorists developed this idea claiming that people experiencing strain seek different forms of success.
Terrorism- a nationalist response to the effects of globalization Globalization of economy politics and social issues has made people and groups more insecure and uncertain. One main consecuence of that insecurity is to look for a personal identity and to search for a cultural identity. Globalization is the phenomenon that explains growth to a global or world wide scale(wordnetweb.priceton.edu). Nationalism is the loyalty and devotion to a nation; especially: a sense of national conciousness (www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/nationalism). 1.
These countries are open to new ways of proficiencies (e.g.) social mobility, and impacting the stratification dynamics more than normal customs of these countries. There has been and paradigm shift of the auto corporations in the area of economic wealth in which the government tax revenue fall within and outside of its demographics. Foreign cultures influx of affluence causes a cultural shock, but soon levels off, and the wealth and affluence they experience positively and negatively affecting these countries materially and environmentally. The positive effect are adequate health care and the countries assets: whereas the negative effects upsets the cultural influences causing
This shows drug trafficking was recognized as a large problem over a century ago. With a better plan and more harsh consequences, drug trafficking can be under better control than it is today. “The position maintained by the United States, a drug-consuming country, was that the trade in dangerous drugs had to be prohibited and that narcotic drug supply should be eliminated at its source” (Keefer & Loayza, (2010), p. 88). This is still the goal for the United States today. Customs officers are expected to do their job and put a stop to the drug trafficking but the temptation of making some extra money may be extremely strong.
Taylor Nordmeyer Prof. L Gertsma ENGL 1101 27 November 2012 Gang Control It’s no question that we have a major gang problem in the United States. More needs to be done to eliminate gangs, because they increase the drug flow, the crime rate, and intimidate citizens of their communities. Not all gangs are dangerous, but the ones that are, need to be contained because of their cruel behavior and their harsh crimes. Gangs become more powerful through these factors. Eliminating or controlling the drugs being distributed by gangs then their power will diminish.
Since then there has been extensive development on this procedure, among the historical developments that may have contributed to the growth of plea bargaining were, the increasing complexity of the trial process (which may have led to the greater use of nontrial procedures both for economic reasons and because officials sought to avoid the "technicalities" of trial), expansion of the substantive criminal law, increasing crime rates, larger case loads, the frequent political corruption of urban criminal courts, the greater use of professionals in the administration of criminal justice (police, prosecutors, and defense attorneys),and the increasing statutory power of prosecutors. A plea bargain (also plea agreement, plea deal or copping a plea) is an agreement in a criminal case whereby the prosecutor offers the defendant the opportunity to plead guilty, usually to a lesser charge or to the original criminal charge with a recommendation of a lighter than the maximum sentence.A plea bargain allows criminal defendants to avoid the risk of conviction
