People may feel that they con not report crimes like rape because it is uncomfortable to talk to the police about it. If research showed this then police could be trained to deal with victims in a more caring manner. My hypothesis I expect to find that the official crime statistics in my area do not reflect the actual crime rate. I expect this because it is obvious that not all crime is reported to the police. Many people do not report crime that they feel is too petty and where they cannot gain anything from reporting it (e.g.
Police officers need the correct discipline when it comes to controlling how much power they are giving. Power would go to any persons head, whether they intend for it to or not, simply because of our humanity. The purpose of MPPR is to help people come to the authorities. It helps them gain the confidence they need to report what has happened to them. A lot of the time, victims of any abuse are afraid to go to the authorities from fear of their attacker coming for them again, fear of angering the entire police
They often do things without the knowledge of what they are doing. Many people who do have these illness commit crimes without the knowledge of the fact that they are doing wrong. People often do not believe that having a mental illness gives people the right to commit a crime, and it doesn’t. It merely suggests that the person who committed said crime was not aware of their actions therefore cannot be held accountable for the wrongdoing. Families of the victims usually are oblivious to what mental illness is and own they do end up educating themselves wondering why these people never got help so their loved one may have been spared.
This works by helping to reduce the opportunities for criminal activity due to the constant presence of the police and the collaboration of community residents in the crime prevention and detection effort. Scholars all over the world and in all different disciplines have highlighted poverty and unemployment as the major contributors to criminal activity. Additionally it has also been noted that Education is the best weapon in combatting poverty and unemployment, and so, I believe that the school curriculum should be restructured to incorporate more vocational studies and career guidance for students. The reason for this is that some students may not be academically inclined and may fail standardized tests which may lead to failure to obtain the necessary requirements to secure gainful employment. This then could lead to unemployment and eventually to indulgence in criminal activity.
. . I am sure I am going to get in trouble for saying it, for $65 you can bring that lawsuit" (Carter, 2013, pp.4). The stop and frisk law is one reason I do not believe in law enforcement profiling. Even though some law enforcement officers allow personal feelings and power to allow them to not follow policy, some policies are not followed morally because I do not feel that officers should be allowed to frisk someone who is innocent and has not committed a crime because it takes the focus off real criminals and onto innocent people; it causes emotional stress.
What we fear is what others can access and what they might do if they knew of our vulnerabilities. Maintaining and keeping our vulnerable aspects private, we develop a false sense of personal safety from the outside. Privacy is a value we hold close and dear as a society. We do not advertise to others of our weaknesses or our confidential personal interactions. Most of the population does not want to get involved or want to know about other private issues.
Combing these three systems seems like it would work because it gives people the opportunities they need while still satisfying the public’s safety in incarcerating them to pay for their crime. Crime will never be completely abolished because people have a free will to act as they wish and some people are just evil. Even though crime will probably never be fully ended, we should may every attempt possible to rehabilitate those who have previously offended to prevent them from re-offending.
The issues with wrongful convictions for the criminal justice system is that people in society look up to the criminal justice system because of its almighty power to protect the citizens from criminals. However, when such cases of wrongful conviction appear, people are frightened that an innocent person can be convicted for no reason and the same may happen to them. The public is confident in the criminal justice system and how it would do its job in protecting and serving the society. People give up some power in order for the criminal justice system to protect and ensure people’s freedom and rights. If someone commits a crime on someone, the law makes the wrongdoer pay in some way.
With incarceration costs becoming high there are new alternatives rising, one of the most popular being public shaming. Public shaming should not be considered appropriate for any offense that can result in a short jail term. Public shaming can do so much emotional damage to someone, and no one should feel such incredible humiliation or self hatred. People who endure public shaming cannot bear to live with themselves sometimes that it could lead them to do something irrational. Public shaming at times is not even a punishment for some, if someone does a crime they should also do the time.
Justice is about how to balance the crime, the punishment to fit the crime, be fair with the punishment as well as providing the victims with the relief that justice was served. When trying to seek justice it is apparent that everyone looks at the facts that are involved in the case to determine how justice should be done. Some facts that might be looked at could be the defendants childhood situation, what situations may have caused the crime to be committed, does the defendant suffer from any mental illness and the defendants criminal history are good facts to take into considera... ... middle of paper ... ...back into the community but was faced with the reality of not being able to find a job because of his crime. Fortunately Richard did land a job and he has been a success since he has been released from prison. In Richard’s case, justice was served due to the time that Richard pent in prison, taking accountability for his actions, and learning how to cope with his illness, controlling his feelings and learning how to be a successful citizen once he was released from prison.
