There are small groups of people creating riots and acts, trying to put a stop to the abuse but they just fizzle out because they are overpowered and undermanned. The misuse of police power is a serious issue throughout social media and the world, police officers are wrongly abusing innocent people under the impression that they have committed some kind of crime and
The police would only react to a perp violently and with force if they felt threatened and when this happens local news and internet makes it look as if police are the bad guys which in some situations they are, but others they aren 't they are just doing their job as officers to serve and protect. Three possible solutions to this problem would be firing the officer, giving them jail time, or even treating them as they treated the victim for reasons that did not require brutal force, but in other cases the perp should be the one in trouble and the police officer is the one who
So you see how bad police brutality is and what problems it causes in the world.The presidents of the united states should make a stop to this and make a change. Most of the police brutality happens with other races and colors, some officers might be racist and treat other races bad.Thats most of the problems we have with police officers, also most of the reports come from teens.Teens are one of the most that complain about police brutality.Most of the complains are about teens getting tased for no major reason for being tackled down and being pinned hard to the ground.Also most teens video tape the scene so they can later show the police department what happen and so they can do something about it. The crime control center has told the police departments and ... ... middle of paper ... ...e teen. In conclusion if police brutality would stop then there would be less violence in the world and also less fear of police officers. And there would be less reports of police officers beating up or tasing teens and probably the police department would have more time dealing with other stuff.Also they can start getting new safer equipment so they won't harm more people and probably patrol some streets to make sure everything is okay.So if police brutality is to stop right now 2014 then by 2015 we would have a less violent city and get to have more safer quipment.
How, besides protesting, can we truly make sure that there will be no more black people being killed, beaten or tortured by police officers? And how can we promote justice and equality in the law enforcement more often? Step 1. Body cameras on every officer will show a huge decrease in police brutality. Body cameras are not going to make everything stop but it will definitely help instill some fear in those who believe they are invisible and can do whatever they want.
A lot of the stories portray police officers as harmful beings, but a lot of times the news only tells one side of the story, which usually makes them out to be the villains. If the police were really abusing their power, wouldn’t there be more deaths? Police have the right to stop and question an individual if they suspect that individual or circumstance seems suspicious. Police are criticized everyday for the judgement they make. When something happens, police
Police Brutality The definition of police brutality is the use of unnecessary force by police when dealing with people. Excessive force is using force well beyond what is necessary for the situation. Police use pepper spray, batons, nerve gas to hurt or intimidate people. Many excessive force complaints do not get investigated and this is because we have problems with our system. Police feel as if they are unstoppable.
A big argument against police discretion is that it allows officers to abuse it which can lead to a greater threat in police corrupt. Some people say that cops don’t have the slightest idea what could be ... ... middle of paper ... ...d to do something about the consistency and teaching how far to take it and in certain situations. Also, help officers during training with situations dealing with different ethnicity, social class, and race, because this is where police discretion is used a lot. Watching the video in class we learned that police officers are more likely to arrest someone or charge someone with a crime if they have a different race or if they think the area they are in is a high crime area, some automatically assume that they are doing something they are not supposed to be doing or committing a crime. The zero tolerance policy that was stated above shows that with that it is making progress, I believe that should be used more an With better training and good and better department policies I think that the problem on police discrimination can be better handled and better achieved.
If the person that is being chased is wanted for a crime, not that he is guilty, but just wanted for an investigation, then the police have every right to stop them and to do what is necessary to apprehend them. There is also another side to police pursuits with its own troubling statistics. We know that when a pursuit begins it usually ends up causing accidents, injuries, and can some times even be fatal. Critics claim that most of these pursuits are unjustified. Some people say that the suspects flee because they don’t have insurance or their license is revoked.
Although this law says you can defend yourself if you are being threatened people have different views on how they are threatened. A simple cuss word or a little push should not be considered as a threat and requiring the victim to kill or shoot the other person. The reason this law is not good is because people will find the littlest thing t... ... middle of paper ... ...t like how the bad guys are armed (Sullivan). Although, I see where their side is coming from they need to consider how this law is not being used for the right reasons and people are getting away with countless crimes due to this law. In conclusion, the Stand Your Ground Law does not help out our society in any good way and is also letting more criminals off easily.
What happens when officers forget their role and responsibilities? They abuse their power and go beyond their duties crossing lines that should not be crossed for instance in Saratoga New York a police officer tries to conduct and illegal vehicle search, when the civilian refuses, the officer slaps him and takes the keys. This type of conduct should not be tolerated and officers should constantly be reminded of the consequences of such actions. One thing in particular that can be observed is that in most videos the officers are not alone yet the other officers knowing their partner are wrong do not intervene, this pattern shows that the officers are not being trained properly. Proper training can easily avoid such conflicts for example in the case of Saratoga New York another officer could have deescalated the situation by letting his partner know that what he is doing is illegal, this simple action could had avoided a lot of problems.
