Unethical Police Operations In recent years, police action became the view of the world, and in public eye. Every citizen within the U.S is not only worrying about protecting themselves and their family from criminals, but also keeps their eyes on an officer who supposed to serve and protect our citizen daily. This paper will discuss the use of firearms and a receipt of private information, which will also include the discussion of how citizens’ has the right to take advantage of by our policemen. Because of the entire significant differential, all citizenship must take action upon them to affirmative from physical brutality; information abused, and rights violations. Every conflict has its significant implications on administrative and departmental officer procedures.
It is difficult to hold prosecutors accountable for acts of misconduct. Since prosecutors are often viewed as the “good guys” by the public, many times unethical, as well as illegal acts will be tolerated by the courts and criminal justice system as a whole. Prosecutorial misconduct is considered any action taken by the prosecutor in a criminal case that is against the law and/or unethical. Prosecutorial evidence can be anything from harassing witnesses on the stand, pressing unfounded charges against defendants, tampering with evidence, withholding evidence, up to taking bribes. Prosecutors can sometimes get away with misconduct as it is extremely difficult to prove that misconduct had actually taken place.
This is a pivotal part in terms of maintain the functioning of society and to ensure that people don’t go around breaking laws wherever and whenever they want. The criminal justice system is therefore a central part of society and without is society would quickly deteriorate into chaos. There are however a number of issues in the criminal justice system. Some of these issues include false convictions and bias within the courtroom. The tutorial discussion this week was essentially discussing how the system operates and some of the flaws within the system such as false convictions which come about through human error or in extreme cases racial bias (Alberto F. Alesina, Eliana La Ferrara, 2011).
1. I do believe CRASH is an important unit that needed to be created in order to understand how gangs worked from the inside. 2. There should not be a different recruiting or supervision of a unit like this because working a dangerous job like this calls for people that have been involved with crime in their past and already have an understanding of what it is like. These certain people also call for a great amount of street smarts to go along with their professionalism.
Police officers have an important part in criminal justice. There are pros and cons for becoming a police officer. The public depends on the police to keep their communities and themselves safe. “Some concerns, such as corruption, on-the-job dangers, and the use of deadly force, derive from the very nature of police work.” (Schmalleger 266) Policing is a 24 hour a day job because “they are expected to exercise authority when necessary, whether on or off duty.” (Gadek,
By dealing with the offenders through communication and education, we set ourselves apart from the local law enforcement. This not only allows for a more peaceful resolution, but it also reduces the amount of money the residents would have collect in order to pay the salary of the off duty officer we would need to patrol the community. Residents discovered that by rotating duties and shifts, everyone who wants to participate in the program has a chance to. Working together we are stronger than if we took it upon ourselves individually to confront the issues of crime we have in the community. Research has proven that by taking an active role in protecting our assets we have a better appreciation of not only the property we have, but the property of our community as a whole.
A plea bargain can help a prosecutor by it saves the court valuable time for high-priority cases. Also it can help a prosecutor because then don’t have go through a trial if they have a lot of other cases. A plea bargain can also help a prosecutor because if the defendant takes the deal it shows that they are taking responsibility for the crime. When it comes to the defendant a plea bargain can help by the defendant could get a lesser sentence if they plead guilty to the crime the committed. Also it can help the defendant by not making them sit though a trial.
I feel as if the US needs to be more careful with their way of getting such law enforcement officers. Not that their way of selecting officers in today’s world isn’t enough there just needs to be more added to it. In conclusion the movie “US Marshals” conveys multiple levels of criminal behavior. Not only from a criminal running away from law enforcement but rogue cops also committing criminal acts. Before anyone is sent to jail and there is suspicion about the case their needs to be detective work done so that the system doesn’t make the wrong
For instance, police officers would begin cracking down on smaller crimes such as kicking vendors out of unissued areas in the hopes that it would somehow eliminate drug sales or theft. Because of this theory, many people were getting in trouble by the law for things they previously did without thinking twice. I think that in short term, this theory can truly be beneficial because of its hands on action. However, in the long run, crime will happen no matter what because people will rebel due to the strictness of these officers. This theory has gotten much support, but because of its intensity it has also received some criticism.
The benefits to law enforcement are increased incentives for captured suspects, pending the prosecutions approval, and leverage for capturing more suspects or higher profile suspects to a case. The benefit to the prosecution and the judicial process are leverage similar to that of law enforcement, but the clutter of the system is one of the biggest benefits. If the court system had to prosecute every single case that comes through the system, including the guilty plea, it would be log jam that would be hard to catch up with. With plea bargaining as well, it gives the accused a chance and incentive to come clean and admit their wrongdoing so they can pay their debt to society and be on with their lives. In the end the judicial system saves money, both with the time of trials and appeals, as well as reduced charges or sentences that ultimately lead to less time the tax payer has to pay for incarceration.
