This is not happening in one place, its occurring all over the United States. Society already has enough problems with terrorism, gang violence, drug trafficking and domestic violence. These brutalities are serious problems and can be prevented with the usage of group therapy. Police officers are given the title to uphold the law not being above the law. Hopefully those acts of brutality can be a symbol to shake people out of apathy and take back their misguided
Police officers are given the power to take any citizens rights away and even their lives. With that kind of power comes responsibility, that’s one major concern with the amount of discretion officers have is when to use force or when to use lethal force. Why do we have police offers who take an oath to protect us but most of the time they abuse their powers? Police brutality has been an ongoing issue in the United States. In many cases, police have taken advantage of the power they have and used it to hurt the people that they are supposed to protect.
Sixth principles “Police use Physical force to the extent necessary to secure observance of the law or to restore order only when the exercise of persuasion advice and warning is found to be insufficient”. A lot of police agencies get in a lot of trouble because of wrongful death or injury. You can only use deadly force when the public put the officer in danger life or harming the public. If he uses the deadly force he has to have a better reason to the chief to use that type of force. Seventh principle, “Police at all times should maintain a relationship with the public that gives realty to historic tradition that police are the public the public are police the police being only members of the public who are paid attention to duties which are incumbent on every citizen in the
Gang violence is seen where unprivileged people live, and it has become one of the most important things that society has to face. The community I grew up in was filled with gang violence which caused a lot of problems because shootings would be heard; sometimes, it is unsafe to go outside because gang members would be shooting each other. This inspired me not only change the way I live, but society in general. When I become a successful adult, I would like to draw attention to gang violence so that I can help move towards potential solutions that will make the community a better place. By developing strong communication bonds with teens, we can help prevent teems from joining gangs which will result in fewer gang violence crime rates.
The correctional system being overcrowded is the biggest issue today. The justice system has been a striving force to make sure the crime rate is reduced and the safety of society stays intact. With keeping society safe, there comes a price. People who commit crimes must be brought to justice and be punished for breaking the law. The
In today’s society, police officers have used excessive force that leads to inexcusable assaults, beatings, shootings, or even death. This type of violence is called police brutality. Police brutality remains a major concern for those of the community. The intent of this paper is to show examples of police brutality and how the criminal justice system and law enforcement administrators handled these cases. To help alleviate police brutality, review boards started to appear in the 1960's (Albrecht, Halleck, Lardner, & Milton, 1977).
If police officers did not act with integrity, good morals, and good ethical decision making tactics then the general public would not trust them. If there is no trust for police officers with the general public this country would have mass chaos. People would not feel safe in their homes because the people (police officers) that are supposed to serve and protect them are dishonest and untrustworthy. Without police officers and other members of the criminal justice field having integrity our country would be like a third world country with all types of pandemonium, anarchy, disorder, and confusion going on. In conclusion, integrity plays a major role in our criminal justice system especially in the jobs of police officers.
Most, people only get to see hear about the Bloods and the Crips gangs of East, and West L.A. Most gangs are now a real threat to our society and communities. Gang members are killing other gang rivals for turf, and foot soldiers perform drive-by for introduction into the gangs. I feel we as people need to get a better idea of the gang safety, and certain procedures so that we can protect ourselves from harm. One of the real issue, and problem today is that the alarming rate the gangs are growing.
CRIMINAL JUSTICE LAW ENFORCEMENT - POLICE FORCE Aug 20, 2011 [pic] INTRODUCTION I chose this topic of police force why it should be reduced because it has been one reason many lives that have been taken unnecessarily by law enforcement. This subject matter is close to my heart because it saddens me each time I have watched the news or read articles where this type of unnecessary force has taken place. As concerned citizens we have all seen cases where police officers have taken matters in their own hands and have abused individuals upon being questioned or arrested. There is a reason for police officers to be carefully and show the force of being in charge as an individual of authority. To be a police officer is to be held at a higher standard since they position.
All of these factors may be predictors of law breaking and crime in general, but could also be related to law enforcement officers. Officers work difficult jobs that are distinctive from many other occupations in that their role gives them the unique access and power that other occupations do not have the liberty of doing. On an every day basis, they break the laws that the rest of society is expected to uphold, they speed, visibly carry guns and are able to personal seize property on a consistent basis. This gives them the day to day opportunity to potentially be deviant. Because officers work in law enforcement it provides an opportunity for their deviance from the law to be justified if there actions are questioned.
