Ethical formalism that is a deontological system because its determinant is motive or intent and not consequence. This is the system that the cops chose because they believed their motive was in fact good and they weren’t worried about getting caught. All the police officers where worried about in this situation was getting drugs off the street and taking off some of the pressure they were being put under by society. I believe that if Detective Griffiths would have not gotten shot and killed and this was a normal raid and drug but this situation never blows up like it did. It was a very unfortunate accident where everything that could go wrong went wrong and it ended up with a dead officer and a criminal that got to walk away with no punishment at all.
With an air taser, you can disable an attacker from up to 10 feet away. This means that you do not have to be close enough to touch the attacker, as required with a stun gun. Tasers are commonly used by the police force, and much research has been completed on their efficiency. They are an effective means of self-defense, especially when used against someone who threatens use of a knife or blunt weapon, as you are able to maintain a safe distance from them. Some people do not like the idea of using air tasers because they deliberately cause pain to the attacker.
The use of less-lethal weapons decreases the percentage of injuries obtained by officers and offenders alike. During the mid 19th century, law enforcement officers used wooden clubs, better known as batons, to control aggressive behavior and individuals who were out of control. The use of firearms came into the picture during the 1800's. Firearms were distributed to the officers as a response to the growing number of armed criminals. Today's law enforcement agencies have begun to become more proactive with less-lethal tactics and weapons to help combat criminal activity and lower the dangers for both the officers and offenders.
Do you Think the Bloody Code Played An Important Part in Stamping out Highway Robbery Or were there Other Factors Involved? I think that many other factors were involved in stamping out highway robbery. I do not think the Bloody Code was a factor because it was not a sufficient way of catching the criminals, and if the criminals know that they have a large chance of not getting caught then they will most probably go through with the crime. There were no police around to catch them and plenty of other factors; like guns were cheap at the time made it easier for highwaymen to rob people. This is the main reason I do not think the Bloody Code played a part in stamping this out.
With the Taser becoming increasingly popular with law enforcement agencies around the world, individuals have begun forming opinions about the device, mostly regarding injuries sustained from being tased. Many people feel tasers are inhuman and are not used properly by police officers, but in reality, they are better for the officers and the citizens alike. According to Sonoma County Sheriff’s Deputy Brian Keen, “According to popular belief, tasers have never
The guards used dehumanization of their enemy to make it easier to commit brutal killings such as the ones seen the the Reserve Police Battalion 101. As John Dower had observed, “The dehumanization of the Other contributed immeasurably to the psychological distancing that facilitated killing. Distancing, not frenzy and brutalization, is one of the keys to the behavior of Reserve Police Battalion 101”(162, Browning). Most of these people in the Reserve Police Battalion 101 had never seen blood or war before. So distancing themselves, in other words, making them seem as least human as possible, made it easier for the soldiers to commit these horrible atrocious killings.
Sitz has to do with the police having the right to have checkpoints to catch people drinking and driving. The court reasoned that checkpoints are designed to eliminate immediate hazards posed by intoxicated drivers. This ruling may not seem substantially important to policing at first glance, but I feel keeping the public safe is a top priority for the police. These checkpoints enable the police to temporarily detain people who are, at that moment, a very serious threat to the public. The checkpoints have probably saved thousands of lives and this would not be possible if the police could only check for intoxication after someone has violated the law.
The public must not however get carried away with only the potential harm that these weapons can cause, and must focus instead on the little amount of actual harm and the great benefit we get each day by having them. The facts show that other types and varieties of firearms have contributed to more homicides than assault weapons have. As a matter of fact weapons other than firearms (i.e. knives, cars, and rope) have contributed more to the death toll than assault weapons have. If we are truly concerned about our safety, our right and our duty to protect ourselvesand all that we love and stand for, then we must be able to own and knowledgeably operate the kinds of firearms that will allow us to do just that.
This program studies what criminals do, and how they do it, so they can counter react that and make it impossible for them to do it at a particular time. Now this is not bulletproof because the crimes still happen, but statistics show its decreasing and maybe with the help of this theory. Then the National Crime Victimization Survey, helps too because they are useful tools of information. They take the surveys seriously, and they find that majority of the people who take the survey have not reported the crime or crimes that they have been a victim in. Not only that, but it makes out statistics more accurate than before because now we have the ones that never reported.
Law Enforcements use of Less than Lethal Weapons Law enforcements use of less than lethal weapons is controversial. My research was conducted to see if less than lethal weapons are a good alternative to traditional police methods, and specifically if they resulted in fewer injuries and deaths. Law enforcements proper use of less than lethal weapons results in fewer deaths and injuries. Until the development of less than lethal weapons, police officers had few options for riot control. Common tactics were, a slowly advancing wall of officers with batons, officers on horseback, shotguns with salt shells.
