Sutherland’s differential association theory imputes the cause of crime to intimate social contacts and learnt behaviour (Bernard, et al., 2010 p.180). Sutherland made criminologists aware of “white collar criminals” by introducing the term and by making society aware of middle and high class criminals and crimes (Sutherland, 1983). When Sutherland originally attempted to publish his book on white collar crime the Indiana University and Dryden (who the f is Dryden?) demanded the removal of names from his book, due to possible backlash it would cause and alienation of the wealthy businesses who contributed to the university (Sutherland, 1983). His book was eventually published in 1949 without the names of companies he accused of committing criminal behaviour (Sutherland, 1983).
Why gun control won’t stop crime After the tragedy in Newton CT, where twenty-six innocent people lost their lives gun control seems to be a hot topic again. The ideas of certain types of gun control have been all over the news and radio talk shows ever since the tragedy. But it’s my belief that gun control is not the answer to violent crime, and in my opinion gun control doesn’t make us safer, it just makes law-abiding citizens an easier target for crime. Many opponents for stricter gun control laws have stated it will cut down on violent crime, or mass shootings such as the one in Newtown. Politicians have stated thy will introduce new laws wanting tougher background checks, forced registration, and outright banning of military looking firearms.
Many have wondered if the defendants are mentally ill or are they using the insanity defense as a way to escape their punishment. The infamous John Hinckley case showed many how the use of the insanity defense could cause a major uproar amongst people. John Hinckley used the insanity defense after shooting President Regan while trying to impress actress Jodie Foster and was found not guilty by reason of insanity. According to a poll by ABC News the day after the verdict, eighty-three percent of their national sample thought justice was not done in the Hinckley trial. Aside from the verdict from the Hinckley trial, the public’s view on the insanity defense is not altogether accurate.
When this bill is signed and presented to the state many police stations will crack down on this misuse of authority causing harsher penalties and termination of jobs for those seen unfit for this change. 3. If something happens to you I recommend you show restraint, you have rights, fighting back can result in only making the situation escalate, offer unconditional surrender, get through the deal and contact a police brutality lawyer C. (Third Main Point) 1. Many of our American tax dollars are going to authorities around the United States and they are abusing our rights. After this letter is signed fear of safety will not be of issue anymore and there will be no reason to fear or be intimidated by law
Gun Control Laws Are Ineffective Tracy M. Turner Gun Control Laws Are Ineffective In the wake of horrific shootings across America, more and more leftist politicians and commentators are calling for stricter laws on gun control. Certain gun control laws are in place in some states and in other countries, but are they actually putting a dent in crime? Limiting a citizen's right to bear arms violates our second amendment freedom and puts the unarmed person in danger by giving the criminal the advantage of owning a weapon. Gun control has proven ineffective in deterring crime. The Brady Bill imposes a five-day waiting period on the acquisition of firearms.
He also states that you may get a knock at 2am at your door with a thug demanding money, and the only way to pay them without getting killed is to sell businesses to pay back the mounting debt that their children have gotten into. Another way the author uses persuasive is by stating that he interviewed a senior police officer who has been trying to stop this for
They’re fear mongers. They wanted to sell weapons by exploiting people’s fears. So the second we want to put common sense regulations on these assault weapons, the NRA will say ‘They are trying to steal every single one of your guns.’ And people believe them. Fortunately, the majority of the American people see past this.” Kasky also slammed Donald Trump for seeming bowing to the NRA in the aftermath of the Parkland shooting. He stated that the president endorsed gun control measures immediately after the shooting, but backed away following a subsequent meeting with NRA
He makes a point to inform viewers that the U.N. nation’s gun-grab agreement is unconstitutional, politically suicidal for those who support it, and down-right-idiotic (2012). He really does have a variety of personal clips of political representatives using them as media propaganda to inform the viewers the pros and cons on gun control. He states that when guns were banned in Great Britain, murders increased by 41%. In New Orleans during the hurricane, the crime rate increased from people entering houses. They showed a picture of a map of a location where someone’s daughter would be in the event an emergency broke out.
The main thing that is hurting our country right now is violence, when you read the news about Chicago they had more murders then the soldiers in Iraq due to gang violence. Furthermore if the police love arresting criminals they should arrest all the thugs and send them to prison because they are the problem. Arresting somebody for drugs is not that Title: Non-Violent Criminals Should Be Punish With Fines serious for being put behind bars that person should pay a fine for his or her punishment. Non-violent criminals have a recidivism rate of 3% according the Department of Justice. In other words a non-violent criminal has a slight chance of repeating the same
This is a very expensive practice. Also, the average convicted murderer spends 12 years on dead row. If supporters of the death penalty are positive enough to kill the person for committing the crime, shouldn’t the supporter be confident enough to execute them in a timely manner? Why spend the taxpayer’s money keeping
