Hi my name is Jaylen, and my question is: Is crime getting worse in New York City? The reason I am interested this topic is because from what I see on the news and on my block crime is getting worse. It seems people are not doing anything to decrease the crime.
As we know, our communities have prisons to contain criminals. They are here to make our societies safer, and we are thankful for them. Otherwise, dangerous people such as murderers would be roaming the streets. But why do we still see crime everyday? You might have heard before that our justice system has a problem. Some may assume that the problem is that criminals are just too hard to fix, and they will relapse into crime as soon as they are released. That is not the case. The problem comes from not the prisoners, but from inside the prisons.
Crime is everywhere and can happen anywhere, anytime. Criminals make it difficult for people to feel safe in society. Our police force does its best to stop all the crime that it can by placing lawbreakers in jail. But, what happens behind bars? Not much to stop the crime. Of course, prisoners are offered programs and counseling to steer them in the right direction, but it isn’t as heavily enforced as it should be. If prison's rehabilitation programs were more strongly enforced, the rate of recidivism would decrease.
Although the overall crime rate in Utah fell in the past two decades, the state’s prison population grew by 18 percent from 2004 to 2013, six times faster than the national average. Rebecca Smith, education coordinator at the Salt Lake County Metro Jail, is optimistic about recent changes in the justice system. Through improved probation systems, an in-development outpatient facility that focuses on treating mental illness and addiction, and a new women’s unit, efforts are underway to help youth in our community escape the cycle of generational incarceration.
My research question is about why rape culture is perpetuated specifically on college campuses. From my EBSCO research I identified a number of interesting things, but one in particular being the fact that as a whole, male college students are not sexually violent. A study done at the University of Massachusetts, which identified only a relatively small group of perpetrators in sexual assault cases, concluded that more than half were repeat offenders, averaging six rapes each.
Imposed and self-imposed alienation can cause psychological impact. In the novel Native Son by Richard Wright alienation from others created a distance and chaos between the white and black races. The hatred of Bigger Thomas towards whites who restricted his opportunity created a hatred in him that forced him to commit criminal actions.
I watch a film called “Every mother’s son” and It made me sad to see how unfair the police is with people of color and it is so sad that nothing could be done to the police that ended with these men’s lives. It broke my heart seeing the mothers crying for justice but no one would care and the government just ignores what these mothers are asking for.
In the United States there is a constant debate on the legalization of drugs mostly regarding marijuana. Many lobbyist and government officials have opinions for or against the legalization. In the article The pros and cons of drug legalization in the U.S. both sides of the debate are assets.
Many are aware of the scandal that NFL Raven's player, Ray Rice, has been a part of. A video surfaced recently of him beating his fiancé in an elevator, then dragging her knocked-out body out. Not only is the video disturbing to see, but it's also disturbing to think of the thousands of children that look up to him.
With the growing amount of professional athletes involved in domestic violence and other issues, should the professional athletic leagues consider more harsh punishment for the player? Only a few days after the Ray Rice incident, in which he knocked his wife out by hitting her in the head and then dragging her off of an elevator, Adrian Peterson was booked into jail for child abuse charges. Ray Rice's original punishment was a 2-game suspension, and he doesn't have to serve any criminal charges because he made an agreement with the judge on his case.
All of May and part of June I had been reading the book The Poisoner's Handbook. As part of the monthly advisory project I had to look into the book at a deeper level, do some outside research on the material in it. Picking up the book at random in my school library I ended up waist high in forensic study, okay maybe not that much. But study I did for 5 minutes reading 12 pages of Wikipedia babble and a super awkward subject of training robots to sniff out dead bodies in a "scholarly article", aka pop sci.
In any story, the listener can almost always take comfort in the fact that the good guy will win the battle or save the day. Although that sounds like an ideal world, we are closer to one where the good guys don't always have the upper hand. Mexican drug cartels have grown over the years through the use of drug production, distribution, the stockpiling of firearms. Powerhouses for the team of justice like the DEA, ATF, FBI, and both the Mexican and United States military have all been corrupted or defeated by these criminal organizations.
The topic i chose to research was about “crime”. Before i searched up this topic, I knew that a crime was something that someone do and go to jail for it. A big crime is what will be historical and go on the internet all over its something big. For example, 9/11 was a big crime, to be more specific, “terrorism”, that happened a few years ago that will always be remembered, so it’s historical. I found this topic by using google. I thought about what will bring up something about most crimes. I typed in “Most Crimes” and I got information from fbi.gov .
Right now, the city council is debating if Oakland should increase the number of security camera's because of all the crime and danger in this city. Most people think, they shouldn't increase the camera's, because they feel as if they are invading their privacy, but the city council thinks it will protect us. And I agree.
Unfortunately, there has been substantial evidence in the past of the United States striking deals with criminals. In a recent article post it has been brought to light that our drug enforcement agency has struck a deal with the Sinaloa cartel. According to the press the DEA has looked the other way allowing the cartel to smuggle billions of dollars worth of drugs into the U.S., in exchange for information on rival cartels. Obviously a moral question is raised in regards to whether this information is worth allowing drugs to enter this country, but there is also a question of practicality.
In a new and surprising article it has been reported that a local militia of vigilantes have taken down the stronghold of the Knights Templar drug cartel. This particular cartel is infamous for its violent reputation and cult based rituals, making them one of the most vicious criminal organizations in the area. A group of locals finally decided that they were done living in fear and stormed the compound, capturing the former cartel leader's brother. The brave actions of these local vigilantes just goes to show the true power of a community.
In an article written by Fox News, it has been brought to light that former U.S. soldiers are being recruited by drug cartels as hit men. This news is extremely concerning because it suggests the people we train to protect others, are using that training to kill. The type of things we teach our soldiers in the Unites States are the types of things you'd never teach to a serial killer. The possible problem with our soldiers is that any one of them is a potential serial killer if the price is right.
Through my research I have found an alarm number of confirmations regarding how much control the drug cartels of the world really have. The first and possibly most alarming piece of data I came across was a New York Times article talking about how three high ranking military generals were just detained for corruption. This is extremely alarming because it shows how much control the criminal organizations truly have over their domains. Not only are these cartels able to sway their police, (who work on a more local level) but the military whose whole purpose is to protect the entire country.
Since as long as anyone living today can remember, the terrifying groups of hardened criminals known as drug cartels have existed. Places like Mexico, Columbia, or almost all of South America have been constantly plagued by these drug fueled organizations. With wealthy, successful, but brutal role models like Pablo Escobar and former Mexican police agent Miguel Ángel Félix Gallardo, most of the youth in these areas will do anything to join. The best way to get involved in these organizations is to kill, and for all drug cartels around the world there is no shortage of people to kill.
I recommend the book "Girl Stolen" it's a very good book about a blind girl and a trouble making boy. Griffin is at a mall where Cheyenne is laying in the back of her car with pneumonia and has been blind for the last three years. Griffen is walking around when he sees a new car with the keys in the car. He doesn't see Cheyenne in the back and quickly hops in and starts to drive. Cheyenne realizes that the car is being stolen and acts quickly to get out.
Over time, our police force has grown to be more and more efficient at catching criminals. With modern technology and a much larger police force, it's a wonder that any career criminals can still continue to make money. The world of crime itself has been changed into a science, from the study of the modern criminals psychology, to specific task forces designed to research and study particular crimes everything is being done to catch offenders of the law. Although law enforcement has made great strides over the year, there are still some criminals that can beat the system.
After going to a Catholic school for nearly 10 years, I have been taught over and over again that Morality goes hand and hand with religion. According to the countless religion teachers I've talked with, we are taught what is right and are motivated to do what is right by God. However, not everyone believes this. Many people do not believe in God, and are living with out religion. Does this take away their incentive to do good? From personal experience, there does not seem to be a moral difference between my friends that believe in God and my friends that don't.
Lil Loco, the protagonist in Once A King Always A King, has a few traits that influence relationships with others.
