The very people whose job is to protect society will deceive people to make illegal money. The politicians that society elects are no better than the corrupt police officers when he or she takes payoffs from organized crime group. Television programs have made me think about organized crime groups as only large groups that make big money. The neighborhood gang is an organized crime group that disrupts the neighborhood and has no respect for members of the community. Movies like American Gangster made me more interested in learning about organized crime groups.
When Tom was accused of rape, this was the most racist point in the book to me. The people of Maycomb automatically labeled him as guilty. If I were in his position I would have wanted to fight back. Atticus Finch, a local lawyer and one of the main characters, is appointed as Tom’s lawyer. He is almost completely shunned from the town because he is trying to help a black man accused of rape.
The main thing that is hurting our country right now is violence, when you read the news about Chicago they had more murders then the soldiers in Iraq due to gang violence. Furthermore if the police love arresting criminals they should arrest all the thugs and send them to prison because they are the problem. Arresting somebody for drugs is not that Title: Non-Violent Criminals Should Be Punish With Fines serious for being put behind bars that person should pay a fine for his or her punishment. Non-violent criminals have a recidivism rate of 3% according the Department of Justice. In other words a non-violent criminal has a slight chance of repeating the same
They are rare and hard to get access to, having very strict licensing laws. The pro-arming argument is that the Police would be a deterrent and would protect the officers. People who say that arming the Police would be a deterrent use other armed countries as an example of why we should have it; I don't believe this is an accurate view of the matter. Worldwide 2011 crime statistics show that in the USA there were 12, 664 murders, and 8,583 were caused by firearms. Compared to the UK where 648 murders where only 58 were caused by firearms.
And of course none of these are good escape routes from poverty and we all believe in the term "poverty causes crime". But it’s not always the poor who commits crime. Mostly the poor or the middle class people will go after crimes to fulfill their temporary desires. For example raping, stealing and sometimes murder too. Since the low class poor people are not usually educated, they often easily “pushed” into the crimes by the high class people.
Non violent offenders today are taking up most populations in the U.S prisons today. Some people do think that just because they are called nonviolent offenders doesn’t mean that they should be. For example, It's not hard to imagine that the guy busted for drug trafficking was maybe carrying an illegal concealed weapon at the same time he was collared for slinging rock cocaine and maybe there's strong evidence that he used that gun to throw a few rounds at a rival. Facing an assault with a deadly weapon charge, our drug trafficker is advised by his public defender to cop a plea to selling rock cocaine. Presto!
There has to be a consequence for breaking laws and committing crimes for anyone. However, there is also a big difference between a non-violent crime and a violent crime. Someone who is arrested for drug possession verses someone arrested for murder is like night and day so should they be punished alike for such different crimes? I think the whole drug epidemic needs to be overhauled and corrected. Rather than put these people in jail where they just sit till they get out why not have a different type of jail where they are housed and rehabilitated with appropriate treatment and awareness?
The legal factor provides base explanation for the decisions on the individual’s criminal record and behavior. An example of disparity in criminal justice system, let say The cops arrest someone for a robbery when they didn’t commit the crime but the cops arrest him because in his past he have been charged with robbery. Also, when it comes to extralegal it deal with more lifestyle, gender, nationality, and class status, which are not reasons to base decisions on. For example a person won’t get sentence because of the color of they skin but on what they do in the community and how popular they are. Which don’t make any since but that’s how the justice system work we sometimes don’t agree with it.
King says to black people wait almost always meant "never" and "justice too long delayed is justice denied." 6. King finds it illogical that the actions of his followers precipitate violence because it’s like condemning a robbed man because his possession of money precipitated the evil act of robbery and society should protect the robbed and punish the robber. Purpose and Audience 1. In the first paragraph, King establishes his setting as the Birmingham City Jail and defines
There are a limited amount of cops a city has and they are valuable resources that are being wasted on a futile cause. The article from Sirs “At Issue: Marijuana Legalization.” states that “Advocates for the legalization of marijuana say the criminalization of marijuana possession wastes law enforcement resources.” Cops should concentrate on other crimes such as burglaries, assaults, domestic violence, abuse and many others instead of wasting their time on small problems such as marijuana which isn’t causing anyone harm except for the taxpayers. Thousands of innocent people are dying due to drug violence and police aren’t doing enough to fight it. According to the article “At least 40 killed in drug violence in Mexico in 24 hours; Zetas cartel behind weekend massacre.” by Philip Cauldfield in DailyNews, “More than 40 people throughout Mexico were slaughtered this weekend in violent clashes between one of Mexico's most ruthless drug cartels.” Apparently the cartels were fighting with a rival gang over territory and 40 innocent people died that one night. Millions of innocent people are killed every year due to this violence.
