Hate crimes are still very real in today’s world. There is more than one type of hate crime in the United States. Hate crimes are attacks against a person, property or even the society and are because of racism. Even though the Civil Rights Act was passed the people are still acting out and violating harmless victims because of racism. It is surprising the statistics even for 2012 of the violate attacks against the victims.
Yes , they need a new mission , that help them to achieve new objectives, but those objectives just can be accomplish with a new strategy, because the present strategy is good to increasing the size of the band and have more people, but at the same time that also have consequences. As the band grew larger problems start to appear in the way of living at the camp. 3) What strategic options does Robin Hood have? Is continuing with the present strategy an option or is the present strategy obsolete? Robin Hood needs to change the strategy but he has to maintain their ideals.
Running head: POLICE CORRUPTION, BRUTALITY AND MISCONDUCT IN 1 Police Corruption, Brutality and Misconduct in America Michael R Celestine CJA 214 January 7, 2013 Bobby Sheppard POLICE CORRUPTION, BRUTALITY AND MISCONDUCT IN Police Corruption, Brutality and Misconduct in America Police misconduct and corruption are abuses of police authority. Sometimes used interchangeably, the terms refer to a wide range of procedural, criminal, and civil violations. Misconduct is the broadest category. Misconduct is "procedural" when it refers to police who violate police department rules and regulations; "criminal" when it refers to police who violate state and federal laws; "unconstitutional" when it refers to 2 police who violate a citizen's Civil Rights; or any combination thereof. Common forms of misconduct are excessive use of physical or Deadly Force, discriminatory arrest, physical or verbal harassment, and selective enforcement of the law (Saucier, 2001).
In spite of this diversity, the media still misrepresents different races in many ways. One common way is through the use of racial stereotypes. Another way is the amounts of news coverage different stories receive. These are just two ways misrepresentation in the media occurs and there are several others. I believe as a democratic country it is important that the rights of minority groups are upheld.
LITERARY REVIEW: THE PREVENTION OF HATE CRIMES Introduction: It is an unfortunate reality that prejudice and aggression are some of the oldest and most long standing features of human society. Many have struggled to understand and address these problematic issues including social scientists, law enforcement, and other theorists. Society’s general adaption of values such as equality and tolerance coupled with the persistence of group tensions arising from a long history of ethnic, racial and status differences has given rise to a different brand of criminal activity; the hate crime. Increases or shifts in diversity have also contributed to the emergence of the hate crime (Boeckmann, R. J., 2002). Recognition of the dangerous harm of these acts is responded to in the form of hate crime laws.
Describe and Discuss Offender Profiling Douglas and Burgess (1986) define offender profiling as ‘an investigation technique by which to identify the major personality and behavioural characteristic of the offender based upon an analysis of the crime(s) he or she has committed’. Profiling began in the USA in the 1960s/1970s, when the FBI specialists were trained to infer personality and behavioural traits of an offender by detailed analysis of the way he or she committed the crime. The technique was initially devised to help narrow down the search for serial offenders in apparently motiveless cases of murder and rape. Offender profiling is also known as crime scene analysis, or criminal investigate analysis, as it involves forming hypotheses about an offender based on analysis of the crime scene, victim and existing knowledge about offender behaviour. Early work on offender profiling by the FBI indicated a broad distinction between organised offenders and disorganised offenders.
Whilst using the authoritarian style I had to raise my voice to a certain extent but I think if I was louder my instructions could have been clearer and add a sense of urgency to the task which may have made my team work harder and faster which would improve the efficiency. Improving this would be an advantage as I may have been taken more seriously by my team and if the situation was more serious this would have been very important. Having a louder voice makes the leader sound more dominant which gives him more power over the group which means that people are more likely to listen to them and take them seriously. However for the problem solving part if the task my democratic style was appropriate. In the public services having a louder and more authoritarian voice would be vital as if I was an officer in the Army training recruits, then I’d need a louder voice in order to assert my power and enforce discipline on the group.
This essay will show that whilst the law often has a broad meaning, in the UK for example, “Any hate incident, which constitutes a criminal offence, perceived by the victim or any other person, as being motivated by prejudice or hate” (Stonewall, 2012), being able to identify and punish hate crimes is far more difficult that it would seem. Whilst there has been a significant rise in the number of hate crimes being reported, the actual definition and clarification of the categories of groups included as possible victims of hate crime remains unclear and as a result, application of the law lacks parity across these groups. Johnson (2010) wrote that over 50,000 hate crimes had been reported in the UK in the preceding year, with over 43,000 reported as racially motivated and almost 5,000 incidents motivated by a person’s sexual orientation, either gay, straight or bisexual. When considering groups who would be most vulnerable to hate crime, race and sexual orientation are likely to spring to mind, although as Gerstenfeld (2010, p.2) points out, precise groups that are included as victims in definitions of ‘hate crimes’ can vary from place to place but race and religion always seem to feature – the two oldest reasons for division in society. Gerstenfeld (2010, p.9) goes on to point out that the simplest definition of a ‘hate crime’ is that it is a criminal act that is
This is a day that will forever be burned in the minds of not only Americans, but other cultures and races across the world. A random act of violence (of a target) can have a few different levels. This was a hate crime that not only affected Caucasians, but races from all over the world, and once other races were affected; there was no taking back the damage that had been done. When referencing the factors that serve as victimization many different levels come to mind. If the hate crime is sexual orientation based, the factor(s) would be if the victim is LGBTQ, and with the number of individuals having issues with LGBTQ, the number of crimes is on the rise.
