Given the demand of their products, the gang members can be financially safe. But, their high amount of money can be dangerous since other gangs may wish to take over the area the products are distributed in. This has been known to lead to bloodshed, and the death of innocent people who happened to be in the wrong place at the worst time possible.

Policing has come a long way. As Fyfe points out, extralegal violence has become almost completely eradicated. (Fyfe article) This shows that departments have accepted the huge array of different lifestyle. Yet, the existence of violence due to misunderstanding shows that they do not yet understand it. With enough education, including the education of citizens, there can be an understanding produced that will alleviate many of the situations which now arise from miscommunication between the police and citizens.
As expected, the police force is the main arm entrusted with the powers to ensure peace, order, and justice in society. For this very reason, the police need to maintain a high sense of respect and hesitation of law and policies that defend the wellbeing of the citizens and a country in general. However, when the police misbehave in a way that makes the normal citizen realize that the police broke the law, the citizens are most likely to reduce their cooperative behaviors towards the police (Harris, 2009, p.26). Because of this, the conflict between citizens and police officers hinders the officers’ ability to do their job to their full potential. In the United States, one of the most prominent police misconducts is the use of excessive force in handling citizens (Micucci & Gomme, 2005, p. 488).
Police should be armed because it can reduce crime, can handle more dangerous threats, and can save lives. Law enforcement should be armed, because when police are not armed, with at least some kind of weaponry, the criminal will probably get their way if they are superior firepower. Almost 50% of the fatalities of law enforcement on the line of duty. It is not right to give them something to protect themselves and other people with. It is their job.
The pros to this plan include a reduction in police corruption and misconduct in the Hanahan Police Department. There would also be a reduction in secrecy in the Hanahan Police Department, which would be a major step in the right direction after the lack of communication of the Department with its citizens. This program would also teach Police Officers of all ranks to do thinks by the rules, even if the person who commits a crime is a part of the Department. The cons to the new plan of the Anti-corruption task force and community involvement would be the amount commitment that all involve would have to make because being responsible for the training and conduct of recruits can be a challenging task even for the most experienced officers. Another con would be the fact that Police Officers who are teaching the training sessions would have to manage being an effective police officer as well as an effective teacher, which could possibly backfire.
Acknowledging that we are all humans who make mistakes, and that we aren’t always one hundred percent honest, it is important that we secure our people from injustice if we have the necessary measures. Through the use of cameras on police both the public and policeman will be better insured or accusations and violence. Unfortunately, not even policemen are always right.

Body cameras, will reduce the amount of violence, benefit not only the public but also policeman and most importantly enforce justice!
Many people feel negatively towards the police and the justice system when claims of misconduct go un-investigated. Consequently, this shows the police need to have their privileges specifically outlined and strictly enforced so that shooting incidents and reports of brutality are thoroughly investigated otherwise citizens start developing the idea that the justice system is actually working against them. Especially when they stop protecting the community and only help each other. When the majority starts losing faith in the police, citizens begin to feel as if they are not safe and that they need to take action and start protecting the community since there is no where else to
The more pu... ... middle of paper ... ...effort to get this problem under control. The idea is to make sure the public does not have to fear that an officer of the law can use their power and get away with this type of behavior. It is the job of the entire police force to look at the situation and work amongst themselves to find anwsers that work best for their department, by doing this it could absoultely reduce unnecessary abuse of power in their department. It would not be acceptable to sweep this behavior under-the-rug, but to deal with it head on. It is possible to prevent so many unnecessary incidents of excessive force or abuse in police departments.
This statistic is very alarming because it reveals the amount of people that can potentially suffer from numerous health problems such as heart attack or stroke, due to high blood pressure. Fortunately, there are many solutions to treat or prevent these health problems including healthy diet, exercise, and medication. The developing problem of high blood pressure can be a lethal and silent killer because of the people who might have it, but are not fully aware of the dangerous consequences that comes along with it. If more people do not try to treat or prevent high blood pressure, the outcome will be fatal. People need to be more attentive and educate themselves about high blood pressure and its consequences because it can negatively affect their health.
The organization that I have come up with is called the MPPR, the Misuse of Police Power Recognition. It is important that the first step to solving the problem we have is for the police is to recognize what is going on. We need to recognize that what some police men are doing is wrong and put a stop to it. One major thing that could help stop the abuse would be to talk to the police officers advisers. Most of the time they do not know what is going on around their precinct because it happens behind their back.
