Despite being a neighbour to many Dockland developments, Canning Town remains among the 5 per cent most deprived areas in the UK with local people suffering from poor health, low education and poverty. Most housing there is social housing, but all of the decaying, high rise tower blocks were demolished in the 1990’s – and most homes now have gardens. Renovation has also dramatically improved the condition of many of the other buildings. Canning town residents face a number of problems, one of which is that of expensive housing, although the housing in the East of London is less expensive than that of most other areas of the capital, it’s still unaffordable to those on low incomes. As well as this large family homes are in short supply in Canning town.

In addition, gangs increasingly are smuggling large quantities of heroin, cocaine, and MDMA (also known as ecstasy) into the United States. Local street gangs in rural, suburban, and urban areas transport drugs within very specific areas, most of what seem to be low socio-economical areas. Some gangs collect millions of dollars per month selling illegal drugs, trafficking weapons, operating prostitutions rings, and selling stolen property. Gangs launder their proceeds by investing in real estate, recording studios, motor cycle shops, and construction companies. The extent of gangs/drugs A proliferation in gangs will also mean a growth in drug and violence in our community’s and threatening society in general.
After the fall of the Soviet Union in 1991, Russia’s heroin problem continued to grow. So much so, that in 2011 the country has become the worlds largest customer of heroin, with an unofficial estimate of two million users. With a southern border of more than 4000 miles long, the patrol area stretches greater than the distance from New York to London. It is no surprise the drug trade is out of control. Worst of all there is a new moonshine drug on the rise called krokodil that has some terrifying consequences.
In 2007 analysis said that Detroit officials noted about 65 to 70 percent of homicides in the city were confined to a narcotics catalyst. Now days there are way too many shootings going on over the stupidest things. A lot of our young men in today’s society are getting their lives taken a young age. People are fearful much more than back then in our metro Detroit area because the violence and death rates continue to go up. Every day you hear of a young male getting shot/killed or a young woman getting abused then killed.

Human trafficking is a menace to the United States Society; there are approximately 600,000 to 800,000 cases of human trafficked annually all over the world (Clawson et al. 2009). Dubbed as a contemporary slavery, this is a lucrative and money minting business estimated to be raking millions of dollars. Many interested organs and the political organs are in a rush to tame this vice and restore the good image of the country. Apart from it being a prime destination for travelers, the United States has turned out to be the excellent platform for most of the criminal dealings.
Police corruption has increased dramatically with the illegal cocaine trade, with officers acting alone or in-groups to steal money from dealers or distribute cocaine themselves. Large groups of corrupt police have been caught in New York, New Orleans, Washington, DC, and Methodology: Corruption within police departments falls into two basic categories, which are external corruption and internal corruption. In this report I will concentrate only on external corruption because it has been the larger center of attention recently. I have decided to include the fairly recent accounts of corruption from a few major cities, mainly Detroit and Dearborn, because that is where I have lived for all my life. My ideas and examples have come straight from the book, along with some.
