So why shouldn’t law abiding citizens be able to do the same and be able to protect themselves. The deterrent effect of a concealed weapon would benefit the person and the general public that is doing the same. Because the criminals out there wouldn’t know who is armed and who is not. That would in turn get some criminals to think twice about going after someone who is also potentially armed and knowing that their life would also be in danger. I feel some crimes that have taken place in this country could have been stopped or lessened to a degree with a concealed firearm.
In the spirit of selfish self interest, the majority in a state will vote on implementing laws that favor the majority population without considering how it will affect the minority population. Someone has to step in and protect the minority’s interests and check any sort of discrimination directed to them. In this case the only people with the legal power to do so are the legislators and the government, even if it means facing majority outcry in the process. Oversimplifying an important public policy into a multiple choice decision, as earlier stated, might not result in the implementation of public laws. When voting in referendums, it is doubtful that most of the people voting have a complete idea on the decision they are making.
State regulations regarding licensure opportunities if an applicant has a previous felony conviction, State regulations regarding the type and number of academic courses and practicum/internship hours, The state accreditation requirements for educational institutions, The state regulations and requirements for online graduate education programs. 4. What is the difference between the 48 hour and 60 hour MA Counseling programs? The 48 hour program prepares the student to pursue state licensure in states that only require 48 hours of course work. While the 60 hour program prepares students to meet the requirements for licensure in the state Virginia as well as other states that require 60 hours.
Could be considered the conservative approach to the crime prevention module. Supporters prefer the “assembly line” (Worral p.14) method to expedite alleged criminals through the means of plea bargains to not clog up the courtrooms, which can be tied with quantity over quality. For example, meeting citation quotas or setting up DUI check points, which in essence is for the benefit of public safety; but can also be seeing as a way to increase revenue. One issue at the current moment would be the need for cameras on the uniforms of officers policing the street. The Due Process model would say that it is needed to make sure that officers properly follow procedures while questioning or detaining suspect on the street, in the case that something gets out of hand, a jury can see what actually happened.
Community members would be hesitant in providing officers assistance when needed and they would not be receptive to any of the other services that the police offer. If members of a community start to feel as if they’re being harassed or targeted by their local police department, those members will develop an “us against them” mentality. Another example on how this strategy can negatively impact the community would be fear. A mother is waiting for her teenage son to come home from an after school program or part time job and he doesn’t get home at his normal time. She may be fearful that her son is being stopped by the police simply because he is a young minority from a low income neighborhood as opposed to an affluent
Acts of armed robbery that end in violence or homicide tend to render the public outraged and give their voice a stronger demand for justice to be done. If we choose to take the stance that our criminal justice system is mean to only keep society safe and that justice is carried out then we need to recognize that the laws we have in place currently are set in place to do so. In theory we could see how enforcing a harsher sentence to those who choose to commit violent acts or armed robbery would work as a deterrent to prevent criminals from committing the act as often as they do
Labeling a particular crime as special or different does not deter criminals from their true intention. If we place a "special" label on certain types of murder, rape or vandalism we are not preventing the hate that is the motive for such crimes. This is not the true goal of society. Helen Dodge makes a compelling argument to shun the members of such hateful communities in her article "Special Crimes Need Special Laws", when she says that the public should band together against such forces (Dodge 140). However, even she had to admit that these special laws won't deter the criminals who practice these violent acts.
They are all in place to help protect American citizens. The first goal is very important because without it how would we be able to keep terrorists from trying to strike the United States. Now that these goals are in place they will help to spot unusually activity. The second goal is also at the top of my list. If our borders are more secure that will help to keep terrorists from trying to cross illegally into the United States.
As a consequence many LDC nations rely on foreign health and economic aid putting them in a situation of unrepayable debt, so even less money can be spent on infrastructure and supporting the economy. As a consequence due to low levels of development FDI is more likely to look elsewhere where the economy and governments and stronger and more stable and where there are educated people. South Korea is not extremely religiously orientated, with half of all adults professing no religion. This could be seen as a reason for preventing development in other nations, as religion and tribalism segregate the nation and can lead to conflicts which damage the
Opportunity theorists reject the notion that criminals are pushed and pulled into criminal behavior. Rather, these theorists assert that criminal offenders are consciously thinking individuals who actively choose to partake in criminal activities in their everyday normal lives. Opportunity theorists seek to explain why criminals choose to commit a crime in one situation and not another. This perspective is what they call an “opportunity theory” Opportunity theories wager that no crime would be committed unless there was an open and present opportunity to commit the criminal act. One approach that opportunity theorists seek in preventing crime is what is known as the routine activity theory.
