Individuals,blacks,and hispanics in this case are often profiled by law enforcement officers because there more likely to commit crimes. Are these convicted minorities truly commiting crimes, or are they just being targeted? We should not allow police to abuse their authority over the innocent. Racial profiling has been a really big promblem in the United States. Law enforcement and citizens dont really look eye to eye but there are some things they can agree on.
9. The Wall Street Journal did not publish the evidence by Markopolos because then people would take it out on them because they did not do the investigation and its because of them they lost there money. 10. I feel that the SEC did not do their job because they should have at least see these transactions and they should have caught him before everyone lost their money. Just because Madoff had good connections with the SEC they still have done some sort of an investigation and at least say they did not see anything than just ignore it because now people are mad at the
He says that the sole purpose of the academy is “to protect the department from the legal liability that could result from negligent training” (22). He explains how the academy never really did teach him anything about how to be a good officer rather. The academy is explained by one officer as “no wonder that’s how cops are out there [rude to people]. They demean us. They break us down.
A lot of people have died because of police officers and the reasons are clear, it is due to criminal activities they have undertaken and then refuse arrest which later causes a spark to ignite between the authorities and the civilians. Other times it is proved that police men just take advantage of their rights and brutally use force against citizens. Are police officers considered fair or brutal towards people? No one can deny that police officers have abused of their authority specially in big cities. Amadou
It proposes that corruption is the result of poor selection practices that fail to screen out applicants who are unsuitable for public service. (Police Quarterly, 2004) A new officer has high ambitions but little exposure to reality as far as the police world is concerned. He/She is shown a world that exposes the worst of people, and is trained/influenced by senior officers who have lost faith in police work. The new officer must establish some mutual trust and reliance with the senior officers that could possibly be corrupt. If the senior officer is corrupt the likelihood of sanction is negligible, then the young officer will accept the status quo and become corrupt.
This article in a has a perception of the president being a bad person and not taking care of things and also sends out the message that the states can do what they want to do. Who is to say that the new immagration rule of ‘show me your papers goes further that routing booking of a criminal and traffic stops. What happens when traffic happen more frequently and police start arresting people for little
As he is unable to achieve these luxuries through work, he may turn to criminal activity because he wants to be like his peers as he feels pushed out. Sociologists believe that to some extent, relative deprivation is the key cause of crime in society however there are some other aspects that affect this. Sub-cultural theories are a belief of some sociologists where crime is explained by saying that criminals learn how to commit these crimes from their peer groups or subculture. Cohen in 1955 completed a study on working class boys in North America and found that they were easily involved in gangs. One aspect that was said to have pushed them away from the education system and towards these gangs was because they had middle class standards and values and these boys were unable to live up to the high expectations of these teachers.
I felt Kane’s argument was a bit ineffective since he kept focusing more on Jim Getty (his competition) thus making him look like a bad person. It seemed as if Boss Jim Getty had committed some crime, however Kane did not explain what he had done wrong. I do feel that he made those who were classified in the lower-class happy that someone wanted to do something to help them. However, Kane forgot to mention what his promise to help this class of people would entitle. I believe that without mentioning what you would like to do in order to help people out you leave the audience doubting if your promise will live up to it.
In some ways the police force were not to blame for not capturing Jack the Ripper because of the harsh conditions that they had to work in. A newspaper article describes the streets of Whitechapel as "containing some headquarters of infamy" and "The sights and sounds are an apocalypse of evil" This gives a very negative image of the streets of Whitechapel and leads us to feel sympathetic towards the Police because they had to work in these conditions. The conditions would also affect a policeman's efficiency and make him less alert. The conditions can also explain why Jack could get away so easily. Because the Ripper wore a "dark coat", he may have been able to camouflage into the dark surroundings, described -"The main thoroughfares of Whitechapel are connected by a network of narrow, dark
Ethnicity and the Police Brittany Howard CJA/344 November 12, 2013 Donna Williams Ethnicity and the Police Police corruption and racial profiling is still alive in today’s society. Often police feel that they are above the law and can commit crimes without consequence. Officers are easily “taken care” of by those who do not abide by the law. This breaks the trust between the community and the police. This creates a negative opinion of police.
