The high likelihood of detection by the police, and the deterrent effects of punishment have been seen as forms of crime prevention. But the traditional criminal justice agencies have prevention as a sort of side effect or unintended consequence of their main aim of detection and punishment. And they are, as we have seen in previous lectures, not that efficient. Specific measures aimed at preventing crime have always been around in an everyday sense. Families, schools and communities disapprove of crime and this acts as a form of 'informal social control' People lock their doors and windows against burglars, and perhaps avoid badly lit areas, or certain parts of town, with the intention of reducing the likelihood of victimisation.
Nevertheless, not always do people get influenced negatively into turning to gangs and making bad choices. Thinking about the gangster environment and about the people that have lived or live in such surroundings you may think that it’s not as bad as it looks or sounds like, but in most cases the people get dragged into situations that force them into joining gangs for protection; people have been impacted by the environment that they live in. They make their own choices, often leading them through several traumatizing events that might make them change. I believe that with a good education our youth will notice all the pointless violence and wasted futures that have been around; the more education one gets not only does it enrich the person who is devoting their life for education but it also enriches their families, communities, neighborhood’s future as well as it does for them. Environment has a lot to do with the choices that people make but thanks to knowledge people decide the path they want to take.
My reasoning is because most don’t understand me, and they take my demeanor as cockiness. Cockiness can turn people off instantly. There is a saying that first impression is a lasting impression. Communication is vital and needed to get things accomplished. Lack of communications means lack of progression.
Games about war and games about crime life, even games about fantasy violence are all over the market. It is thought that Children are affected the most by the violence they are exposed to. I tend to agree that violent media affects children the most. Children are less likely to separate right from wrong like most adults can. It is easy for me to see something on TV and know that it wouldn’t be right to replicate it.
It is important that violence and gun crime are talked about in films and that young people are made to see the real side of it, because people are getting killed often in events where youths are carrying guns, this often appears on the news. Statistics show that gun crime has been on the rise in recent years especially in inner city areas like the one shown in the film. The two main characters of the film are Ricky and Wisdom who can not break out the never ending circle of gun crime but both for different reasons. Ricky tries to leave but he fails because he feels that he owes Wisdom for saving his life and
A community that is left untended can lead to an out of control community. It could be untended children, untended homes, untended vehicles, and untended yards. If houses are not cared for, it gives criminals the impression that the residents do not care for their community. The untended houses opens the community for more disorders, such as drunkenness and loitering. These disorders can lead more serious crimes.
There's all kinds of ways for them to trick you or get around certain situations so that they can bust you for drinking. Most of time officers aren't allowed to enter a house unless a doors open or the owner of the house lets them in. To stop the drinking and driving the cops are more strict and will take you to jail if your under the influence while driving. I think if the drinking age was lowered the problems with under age drinking would not be nearly as high as they are now because of the age being 21. This solution could help solve the problems to stopping drinking and under age kids driving under the influence.
But for some reason criminals are always in a hurry, they won’t wait for you to use the phone to dial just those three necessary numbers. When a criminal breaks into your home which is faster a police car half way across town or a pistol inside a safe next to your bed? Maybe citizens should just wait for the shooter to shoot himself though, since statistics say he is more likely to shoot himself or should citizens wait for him to run out of bullets and people to shoot. Gun control activists may conclude “Well why not outlaw bullets in guns?, People don’t need many bullets to defend themselves.” But they may need a warning shot , so give you may need to give them one bullet. On the other hand what if they miss ?
The difference is interinging because not finishing high school is potentially leading to several other important indicators attached to criminal offenders (DeMichelle.3). Multiple SWI offenders are also more likely to lie (DeMichele, 3). This is why you should not believe what any person says about not going to drink and drive again; this is just an attempt to get cops to set them free so they can go home. People who drive while intoxicated are a small group of persistent chronic or career criminals; drunk driving has been rooted in complex processes of social learning as psychological factors that lead up to antisocial attitudes, desires, motives, and rationalizations acceptable for law violations. In general, multiple people who drive while intoxicated those who gave gad four or more prior DUI convictions are more likely to have demonstrated patterns of difficulty following rules, and once they are punished for misconduct, they are more likely to continue with their law-violating behaviors (DeMichele, 3).
I feel that I am more than capable of shouldering my responsibilities, as well as the consequences along with it. I don’t consider myself as a risk-taker because I never really had the courage to take the step in doing something that I am not certain of. I never had the urge to explore and approach unfamiliar situations and uncertainties. If you look through it, not being a risktaker isn’t really that bad because it makes me make sure and double-check everything that I am doing. I do it carefully and seek answers and information first before doing anything, which also makes me inquisitive.
