The police personality fosters and “us vs. them” mentality that cops are always the good guys and everyone else is a potential bad guy (The Brotherhood). There is a subculture in Police work that in some cases can carry severe penalties towards officer’s if they were to “rat” on another officer. This subculture code of “Don’t give up another cop” has been described as the code of silence, or the blue curtain of secrecy (Pollock 119). In this subculture police officers are often ostracized or deemed unfaithful to the badge if they were to turn on another officer and testify against them during an investigation. Police officers must trust other officers to back them up in a struggle that could potentially be a life or death situation.
However, a serial killer, who kills people for fun or for his personal gain, definitely deserves the death penalty. The punishment meted out should fit the severity of the crime. The death penalty should continue in order to “eliminate” those who do not contribute positively towards society. Firstly, the death penalty serves as an effective deterrent and helps in reducing crime, knowing that they could lose their lives. Secondly, it is true that death penalty is irreversible, but it is hard to kill a wrongly convicted person due to the several chances given to the convicted to prove his innocence with the appellate systems in place with the existing justice system, otherwise why does every country in the world have one?
Crime is easy to describe as any behavior that is generally unacceptable and causes injury to an individual or a group of individuals. Theft, robbery, burglary, corruption, embezzlement, physical and mental violence, rape and killing are easier to categorize as crimes. But when it comes to terrorism, it becomes hard to have a world wide acceptable definition. This difficulty to identify an act as a terrorist act has been one of the key reasons why the world is grappling with a three headed monster called in the present day, “terrorism”. Though everyone accepts that terrorism is a kind of crime, a heinous one at that, the very fact that a terrorist for one is a martyr for others has made the situation very puzzling.
Red is the mediator or polemicist, meaning that he’s a smooth talker and debater. In Shawshank he’s know as the man that can get anything for you from the outside … for a price of course. He’s a crook with a good heart and somewhat good intentions, but he confides to the prison walls to blur the lines of reality outside in the real world. Inside the prison he has value to his name and his insecurities are concealed by the opaque violence, and hard stance of Shawshank’s environment. Hope motivates him, but he does anything in his will to cloak that fact.
We must stop the corruption in the police force. By law, the police have the rights to use legitmate force if necessary to make an arrest, maintain order, or keep the peace. Just how much force is approiate under various circumstances can be debatable. When an officer uses excessive force, he or she violates the law. For example, Jerome Skolnick and James fyre define police brutality as a conscious and delibrate action that a police officer undertakes toward suspects who are usally members of a powerless social group for example racial minorities or homosexuals.
This show isn’t just entertaining, it’s intriguing. It shows the process behind tracking the criminal down. Although this show isn’t spot-on to the real crime and justice system either, I do believe it’s as close as it gets when compared to the other shows on TV these days. Most of the shows that air involve a group of people doing ‘the dirty work’ and one star of the show that always seems to find out the truth. Whether it be intuition or pure genius like quality’s, the star is always the hero.
The fact that drugs are put forth in the community is so that there will always be a need for dependency upon those who set up the criteria for how they want to infest a community. The police are often a part as well, as they too can be bribed and paid off. Many store fronts can open up in a neighborhood, stores that may look legitimate to someone that does not live there, but many times the police, as well as the neighbors know what is going on behind closed doors. Now this is not to say that all police get involved in this kind of activity. However, it does show the power that organized crime can have, even controlling those in law enforcement.
They make money and have no problem luring in the opposite sex at a bar or a party. They have all the hook ups and most likely have an “in” at the local police station. Everything goes well for these characters in the movie, and they are all perceived by the viewer as great, a hero, and the man. This behavior often influences crime in the real world by people that take the movie too seriously. They take something very entertaining, intriguing, and suspenseful and try to make it real, but they forget and ignore the fact that the majority of these movies are fictional, and if they are fiction they are most likely exaggerated to a point where it could not happen in the world today.
Our country has recently witnessed a large amount of police misconduct, and the murders of innocent people. It is important for police officers to treat all people and situations fairly, and only act with force if that is their only option instead of because they feel they are above the law. Police officers should be mindful of the life they live, and how to live without causing incidents that will make themselves and the police force look bad. It is very important to live by the code of ethics at work as well as away from work. It is sad that because of police misconduct people lose trust in police officers, and teach younger generations that all police are bad when they are not.
For example, if someone killed someone else and a government penalized with capital punishment, other people would consider that and will avoid doing it again. In addition, it eliminates criminals and assures the safety of the society. Every society has criminals who make the society dangerous. Therefore, the society should eliminate them by applying capital punishment. There are many methods to apply capital punishment such as hanging, firing squad, electrocution, lethal gas, and lethal injection.
