Over the course of history law enforcement has been used as a tool of the government to quell dissent from the masses. Look back to the labor unrest in the early 1900's - segregation efforts of the 50's. The war protests of the 1960's - 70's. Politicians have historically used the police to silence their critics. In many ways the government has put law enforcement in the position we are today. Is there any wonder that some people still do not trust the police? Do you get a sense that your community trusts the police? DQ 4 Can proactive crime prevention send the wrong message. Does the bars on the windows, bullet proof glass around the cashier and a security guard at the door send a message that the business and the surrounding neighbour hood are unsafe? -------------------------------------------------------

CJS 200 Week 4 DQs

For more classes visit www.snaptutorial.com Not related to the question however it is relevant to a discussion of rules/laws and right and wrong. There are allegations that 11 of 12 footballs used by the new England Patriots were under-inflated. The psi in the balls was under the acceptable and permitted levels. Do you believe this was just an attempt to get a competitive edge or cheating to obtain an advantage. To me rules are like laws - getting competitive edge is part of the game but cheating - like breaking a law- is not. Does Patriots history of rules violations ( like a persons


criminal history) regarding videotaping opponents factor in your decision? Thoughts? The purpose of bail is to assure the attendance of the defendant, when his or her presence is required in court, whether before or after conviction. Bail is not a means of punishing a defendant, nor should there be a suggestion of revenue to the government. Should bail be used as a short term method of safeguarding society against persons future criminal activities?

Recidivism is one of the most fundamental concepts in criminal justice. It refers to a person's relapse into criminal behavior, often after the person receives sanctions or undergoes intervention for a previous crime. Recidivism is measured by criminal acts that resulted in rearrest, reconviction or return to prison with or without a new sentence during a three-year period following the prisoner's release. In a National Institute of Justice Study the following was reported: · Within three years of release, about two-thirds of released prisoners were rearrested. · Within five years of release, about three-quarters of released prisoners were rearrested. · Of those prisoners who were rearrested, more than half were arrested by the end of the first year.

Under the Sentencing Reform Act of 1984, Congress eliminated parole for federal prisoners convicted of crimes committed on or after November 1, 1987. But while federal prisoners can no longer look forward to parole release, they may nevertheless earn reduced terms for good behavior. And, even though federal parole has been all but eliminated, at the time of sentencing, judges can add a period of "supervised release" to be served at the end of a defendant's prison sentence. What are your thoughts? How can parole be an option at the Ste level but not the Federal level?

It requires offenders to serve a substantial portion of the prison sentence imposed by the court before being eligible for release. Previous policies which reduced the amount of time an offender served on a sentence, such as good time, earned-time and parole board release, are restricted or eliminated under truth-insentencing laws. The definition of truth in sentencing laws and amount of time required to be served are primarily governed by state laws, which vary by state. How does the Truth in Sentencing approach fit in with the rehabilitative approach to crime and recidivism? If you believe in one can you believe in the other? -------------------------------------------------------
