A lot of people have died because of police officers and the reasons are clear, it is due to criminal activities they have undertaken and then refuse arrest which later causes a spark to ignite between the authorities and the civilians. Other times it is proved that police men just take advantage of their rights and brutally use force against citizens. Are police officers considered fair or brutal towards people? No one can deny that police officers have abused of their authority specially in big cities. Amadou
This leaves the job of prosecuting very difficult for the prosecution. Many victims do not like to fully cooperate in a stalking or harassment prosecution. This is a situation also seen in domestic violence cases. The reasons why a victim of stalking
The obvious examples in the past were when police officers have a power to arrest with ‘sus’ laws, under the 1824 Vagrancy Act (s4 and s6). Many people saw and ethnic minorities felt the abuse of this practice. Police officer stop and search and arrest people based on ‘intent to commit an arrestable offence’ for people grouping in public area. Hunte (1966: 12) mentioned ‘nigger hunting’ activity by junior police officer. Due to this problem, Scarman Report suggested to reform ‘recruitment and training’ because of racism in young police officers.
2. Yes, I do think that societies view is negatively impacted. The article is highlighting all the bad the police officers in Miami beach. However, I think that it is our right to know when police do something wrong like this. Police are only human they make mistakes, but when they practice brutality like this and murder someone by beating them to death that is a big deal.
This case led to the questioning of whether the legal system is effective for the individual and the community and whether it really brought justice to the victims of crime. A large proportion of society feel let down by the legal system, as a mechanism put into place to protect and bring justice has obviously failed in this case. The fact that serious sex offenders who place a black mark on the well being of victims, both physically and mentally being let off in less than 20 years caused a lot of conroversy. Although it may be argued that 55 years was a harsh penalty and didn’t warrant the crime, the victim’s of the crime received a much harsher sentence, a life of trauma and a constant feeling of alarm. Denele Crozier a Women's Health NSW executive officer asked the question many women had asked after the appeal was established ``How many times do women have to be constantly let down and disappointed by the legal
(1) Based on Cecil Foster thesis, he gets the point that racism is still a big problem in our world today and most people were not noticing how bad it was getting in reality.

Rodney King, an African American man who was badly beaten by Los Angeles police, because of that triggered he became the main focus of how bad the race was a big issue.what they did to Rodney King caused the people to get angry about how the police brutality and racism. Also, people were burning fires everywhere , damaging , stealing breaking business. (2) Forster first example was when he first visited Canada during the Montreal Olympics.He came to
Above the Law Police officers are given the authority to uphold the law and to maintain peace. They risk their lives every day and will have to use the rules of engagement to determine the threat level of violence towards them or society. They are able to use excessive force towards people who are violent and unable to comply. But in some scenarios, officers who think they’re above the law, abuse this rule and that’s when police brutality take place. Officers use brutality for the wrong reasons such as being racist or discriminating the individual.
The Urban Ecology and Factors that correlates with bias crimes attack A major concern with many researchers on bias crime is the measurement of the behavior itself. Bias crimes, are so often called hate crimes, and are committed against one’s person or property. It is also said that hate crimes are not “because of the perpetrators person al animosity towards individual, but because of that victim’s actual or perceived membership in a particular group” (Weisburd). Meaning, bias crimes are so often committed towards people in a particular group, or social class. The weakness that many researchers fail to point out was the motive for an individual to commit bias assaults and above all the correlation with society.
For example, police brutality. One of the main complaints of police brutality is excessive force. Often officers do no know how to distinguish aggressive, necessary force from excessive force. “The Phoenix Police Department is now dealing with accusations that officers stepped out of line and beat up an innocent man. The state’s attorney general is learning about the claims and offering up help in investigating the claims (Fox 10, 2013).” Often claims are brought up in regards to police brutality when an officer is defending his or herself.
Seldom people deliberately set out to breed disquiet for themselves, but in spite of good intentions. Countless make poor decisions resulting in them paying a bitter price. In the case of performing homicide, there is a extensive debate on the death penalty’s decorum and allure of it’s implementation. It’s efficiency, equality, morality, productivity, clemency, constitutionality and implementation overall are dissensions that have been elements of the larger query of is the death penalty acceptable to be utilized? I have concluded that the death penalty is erroneous and incongruous in society today.
