Richard Allen Davis, according to Tucker Carlson has “a monstrous personality (168)” and was apprehended for killing Polly Klass after being released multiple times. In both of these cases, and in many others, authorities were warned early that they were dealing with very dangerous predators. The “revolving door (Breig168)” is so quick that police know to question freshly paroled convicts once a new rape case occurs (Breig168). The social cost of letting career predators go every year is enormous. According to a recent study,
One type of crime that is steadily increasing is drug offenses. There are numerous types of illegal drugs and these drugs are more potent and more dangerous than ever. Those people that distribute drugs such as cocaine, methamphetamine, and barbiturates are the worst kind of criminal and whatever punishment is given definitely fits the crime. In this paper I will discuss the mandatory sentencing laws and whether these laws are biased towards blacks, particularly the black male. Drug crimes have increased dramatically and throughout the years and the government took the initiative to address the drug crisis.
Finally, I will analyze the resulting mentality caused by situational inducement. In the early 1990s, there were several things that contributed to the L.A. Riots: a huge crack epidemic in South Central, more immigrants and murder was at it’s highest rate of 1,077 due to the gang rivalry between the Bloods and Crips which ended right before the riots began.

Uniform Crime Reports and National Crime Information Center 1 Krystal Policing in America – 3 Professor Traci Ciepiela April 24, 2013 Uniform Crime Reports and National Crime Information Center 2 Abstract Since 1929 the Uniform Crime Reporting (UCR) has been a major source of data on crime.

Pregnant and Shackled: The Chaos behind Prison Walls Katrina Young Hodges University Criminal Justice Management CCJ4001 Professor Todd Everly April 10, 2012 Abstract For many decades, crime has been around the United States; from as little as running a red light to committing murder. Some people committed crimes because they were a follower of others and their organization and others because they had to find a way to survive. For instances, those people had to resort to some sort of criminal activity in order to keep up with society; rather it was robbing, stealing, selling drugs, or even committing fraud. The prison walls begin to fill at an increased rate from those who have been caught, convicted, and reprimanded to serve time
The article expounds on some key statistics that suggest that young people are 36 more times to commit suicide in an adult prison than a juvenile facility. It also speaks to the outcome of young people who survive an adult facility. They return to society as damaged and dangerous people and are more likely to commit violent crimes and add to the recidivism rate. This article reinforces my opinion and advocates my stance on children in jails with adults. A quote from the article that puts it in perspective says, “The rush to criminalize children has set the country on a dangerous path.
Cabramatta was a wreck back then, and they fixed that one day with a large amount of police and equipment, they raided houses and arrested people who were selling drugs.

The solution to the drug and crime problem was the reason that Cabramatta is how it is today. Cabramatta’s
Issues surrounding gun violence have been prevalent for decades, however in recent years the crime rates have spiked drastically due to gang violence. These gangs are involved in a host of different crimes like homicides and the illegal sale of narcotics. Street gangs are setting up shop in predominantly Black communities threatening the lives of many innocent civilians. As if the presence of gang activity in these communities isn’t bad enough, these gangs are robbing young girls and boys of their future often recruiting them involuntarily. It is extremely important for the citizens of these gang-infested areas to grasp the totality of the issue and decide to fight against it despite feelings of hopelessness.
This war has created ripples that are felt in all parts of the criminal justice system. The systematic and aggressive arresting of drug offenders found us having a need to create drug courts. These courts were quickly duplicated and other states created them to help with the amount of arrests. These arrests and long sentences have caused an overcrowding problem that has gotten out of hand. Studies have shown that the aggressive arrest tactics and longer sentences for drug offenses has not curbed drug use and has not made our streets any safer.
