Police brutality is a growing problem in policing. There are laws that are strict on crime, and many times depending on the situation the officers need to react a certain way. Police brutality is excessive force to a major extent, and is not treated kindly. Police brutality can occur when an arresting officer feels threatened, by the arrestee, the arresting officer will defend him/her self but if something in their head snaps it becomes a beating. Police brutality is the intentional use of excessive force, usually physical, but potentially also in the form of verbal attacks and psychological intimidation, by a police officer.
He pointed out that “our system for controlling crime is ineffective, unjust, and expensive (Menninger, 531). One of the reasons is because society wants and needs crimes. Newspapers, TV shows, and movie producers vastly report and fabricate the criminal incidents and stories because people love to see them. Human beings all tend to be violent. Historically, expressing violence represented a virtue.
It's clear that in every single case police officers are overreacting. But the question here is: Is it because of racism? The chairman of the police union Washington D.C. says that deadly use of force where race is a factor does not equal racism. Furthermore the debate is about the punishment of Slager. If the fault is not on the police, Slager has to be punished.
Police have two types of perceptions of the police mission, either a crime fighter or public servant. Police perception of themselves as crime fighters leads to certain decisions in their use of force, definition of duty, and their use of deception. If one views police as crime fighters these assumptions may include; criminals are the enemy and are different from good people, the police are the arm that fights the enemy using any means to get the job done, good people accept and understand that police are in a war and must be allowed deference in their decision making because they are the experts and only they know the enemy. The book states the definition of public servants as “professionals who are paid by the public and whose jobs entail pursuing the public good. If one views police as public servants, other assumptions include; criminals are people too just like the rest of us they shop, pay taxes, and have a family, police have limited ability to affect crime rates because the history of law enforcement originates in order maintenance, not crime control, and lastly they assume that police as public servants serve all people, including criminals meaning to not judge on decisions about an individual not being able to receive services.
America with its advanced and sophisticated technology is not safe and secured from external attacks and other terroristic activities of its citizens. Gait Recognition and CC Camera Surveillances throughout the country cannot stop terrorist attack on Bay Bridge which kills more than four thousand people. Moreover, the failure of DHS (Department of Homeland Security) to maintain law and order and its wrong concept of taking every citizen as susceptible terrorist further increase terroristic activities by the frustrated and enraged people and prove itself as an agent of organized terrorism. Marcus Yallow and his technologically well-informed friends are the product of bad schooling and bad system of the government. Clever enough to trick the constant vigilance of school administration and its complete control; they become capable to threaten DHS and even the government.
Since I will be writing about structural transformations, structural transformations are transfer resources from a few sectors to others in a society which is facilitated through its objective or policies. In in research of respect you can be able to see deviant behavior which is a behavior that goes beyond what is norm or accepted in our society. Crime definitely falls into the deviance category that goes against the formal social norms. People who involve themselves in deviant behavior are ostracized by society and in return are victims of structural transformations. A particular group of people in this immense subculture of the drug dealers like Ray engage in violence to gain respect.
The police exhibit this form of masculinity through intimidation, verbal and at times physical violence. This idea of masculinity in the police force allows for justification for maltreatment. C.A.J Coady and Tony Coady states “police often face allegations that they exceed their legitimate coercive power by the use of inappropriate violence; that they are violent beyond their warrant” Coady and Coady 5). The paper will evaluate the relationship of power and control between masculine and feminine identities as it transcends through the practice of policing. Within the macrosystem of the police force, the qualities of power and control are aspects of patriarchal masculinity which attributes to the root cause of physical and verbal violence.
Not only are there crimes against persons, murder and rape for examples, but there are plenty of crimes that exist in the white collar corporate world, most famous recently being Mr. Madoff. All of the afore mentioned fall into this writer’s plans to deal with such degenerates to society, by drawing influence from the Classical School of Criminology, especially the Classical Theory, by implementing public hangings and a reduction of the appeal process. In the subculture of the street gangs “cred.” and other such like forms of respect, that society in mass frown upon, are an essential part of the gang member’s lifestyle. If authorities had a way of showing these gang members that their activities would not give them in so sort of “honorable” badge of honor by serving some jail time, or even killing someone, then maybe the gang members would see what would befall a person that deviates from the law. Maybe if after a known gang member is arrested for one of the more heinous of crimes; murder, rape, drug dealing, etc., then instead of same jail time, or a slap on the wrist, a far more re-memorable something would happen.
stretching from the leaders of countries all the way down to local security guards. The most common of type of abusive power holders is the police. Cases of police brutality can be traced back to centuries ago. A very well known case would be the beating of Rodney King in witch the 31 year old African-American was killed, due to unnecessary acts of several police officers. Police violence is an unnecessary act carried out all over the world.
Hopefully after reading my essay, if you are in favor of spreading the influence of drugs across the land and contaminating our society, you will change your mind and realize why we should eliminate drugs and what you can do to help yourselves and others around you to get sober. How do drugs impact our planet? Our planet is riddled with theft, assaults and even murders. While not all of these crimes are related to drugs, many of them are. It seems as if I can’t pick up a newspaper or turn on the news without reading or hearing of some heinous crime that has been perpetrated and it seems that somehow these crimes always end up back at the same spot, the use of or debate over illicit drugs.
