Other times, criminalists lacking the requisite knowledge have embellished findings and eluded detection because judges and juries lacked background in the relevant sciences, themselves. In some cases, critical evidence has been consumed or destroyed, so that re-testing to uncover misconduct has proven impossible. Evidence in these cases can never be tested again, preventing the truth from being
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
The “Dark Figure of Crime” is the amount of underreported as well as unreported criminal crimes that society does not report to authority. In this case, unreported crimes do not make it to the statistics of official crime. One believes that some people in society are hesitant to report a crime to police for numerous reasons. These reasons can be because of the act of negative criminal behavior from one individual to another. A few common unreported crimes that deal with negative sexual related criminal behavior toward another individual are visible.
“From a legal Point of view racial profiling is tricky because it can be difficult to prove. Seldom do investigators recover a smoking gun with fingerprints on it” (Meeks 7). Unless the encounter was recorded, either by audio or video, it is hard to prove unless there are physical signs. Being a victim of racial profiling is humiliating, embarrassing, and singles the individual(s) out from everyone else in society for no reason. In many cases most of the victims point out that whether it was by being pulled over, stopped in a mall or on the streets, other people look at you differently.
For an individual to lose self-control in such deviant and heinous activity, left fear upon many. When trying to theorize Ridgway behaviors, it is obvious that he does not fall easily into just one category. To apply a single theory would be to undermine his personality and characteristic abilities. From the beginning, Ridgway was abused mentally, sexually and
To deny him this was wrong. Some people think that staying in detention centres is a vacation, because the government pays for everything, but how would they know, have they been or stayed inside one? People make assumptions on what they see in the media, but the media also doesn’t know the full story, they just know what the officials tell them and want them to see. Living in detention centres is NOT some holiday, it is harsh and a horrible place to stay. Detention centres is not a place where the people are treated with respect and kindness, it is a place where people, especially teenagers get sexually assaulted, given the wrong medication and can even die.
Many employers are hesitant and unwilling to hire ex-convicts and parolees, because of their criminal background. Unfortunately this goes back to the question of how do I provide for my family and the only thing that comes to their minds is what does surviving mean for my
Rehabilitation is an issue for law enforcement groups and organizations because society does not always agree that rehabilitation is sufficient punishment for certain offenses, such as drug offenses or drug related offenses. Society has direct contact with law enforcement organizations and groups, many times this causes distention and distrust of law enforcement organizations and groups by society. This distrust and distention of law enforcement occurs because society believes that drug offenses and drug related crimes should receive the same punishment as other similar crimes. This causes distrust of law enforcement because rehabilitation does not always work and when rehabilitation does not work, society does not feel safe knowing drug addicts continue to commit drug and drug related crimes. This causes challenges for law enforcement groups and organizations that do not make the laws but must enforce the laws (Sherman,
Oscar Chen Ms. Norton 2. May.2013 Rape Culture Rape culture has greatly influenced society and has caused women to sink in danger situations. Rape is ultimately caused by men’s urge to enjoy the power they can exert over women’s bodies. Rape not only includes sexual assaults but also serve violent and punishment for women. Rape has affected many cultures and women’s life that we cannot imagine.
Also much of the research used samples of prison inmates so could be criticised as lacking population validity. Therefore any link, however weak, between XYY and aggression would lack generalisability. The fact that prison populations also include XY males suggests that genetics alone are not responsible for any aggressive behaviour that may have led to them being imprisoned and not all inmates are imprisoned because of aggressive, violent crimes. Theilgaard argued that although XYY males gave more aggressive interpretations in thematic apperception tests and therefore seemed more aggressive it didn’t
