Outlaw Motorcycle Gangs (OMCGs) is a contemporary issue that engulfs Australian society. What makes prosecution of such gangs so complex is the strong foothold that gangs have in organised crime and the façade that is worn in order to evade the eyes of the law. Various responses have been implemented in order to cease all violence and more importantly disenfranchise organised crime and prosecute those within the illegal syndicates. Legal responses put into act are: task forces and intelligence and lastly, targeting the organisation and membership. The non-legal responses on the other hand are, the media and the formation of political parties.
“Imagine one day waking up to find that your car had been stolen”, Taylor once said, she believes that a bike for a lot of people is no different from any other transportation that a person may rely on. Stating her solution, she suggests posting signs that simply say that the act is against the law and punishable. This would be as an inexpensive way to help. Other solutions were; possibly starting an awareness program or even strategically placing cameras where they have a clear view of the bike racks. I think that Taylor presents an excellent idea. The seriousness and dedication she displays causes me to open my eyes and pay attention to ways I may be able to help make my school campus a better place.
From recent efforts of campus securities around the nation, the amount of bikes stolen has decreased dramatically, but is still a prevalent issue. To reduce the number of bike thefts, university officials have been placing “bait” bicycles with GPS tracking systems around college campuses. Because of their recent efforts, more arrests have been made on campuses such as Arizona
Likewise, bike theft is a huge problem for many metropolitan cities in the U.S.. Literature to support this claim is the 2015 Crime Prevention Program in Portland, Oregon. “Thousands of bicycles are stolen in the City of Portland each year… Places with high concentrations of parked bicycles such as college campuses are especially vulnerable to theft” (Office of Neighborhood Involvement Crime Prevention Program, Bicycle Theft Prevention, 2015). This article also identifies many preventative techniques to make a bike harder to steal; for example, “Proactively register your bike and include its serial number and photos with the bike registration services bikeindex.org and project529.com” (2015). Moving on, it is imperative to attack any problem
On 04-11-2017 at approximately 1500hrs, I conducted an investigation on a stolen bike that was taken from Holmes Foods (101 S. Liberty Avenue). I made contact with the owner, who was identified as Ricardo Perez (TX-ID # 18515108). Perez informed me that his bicycle had been taken from his place of employment without his permission. Perez advised he chained the front tire to the frame to prevent anyone from riding off with the bicycle, but failed to secure the bicycle to the bike rack. Perez advised upon leaving his place of employment, he noticed his bicycle missing from where he parked it. Perez notified his supervisor, who informed Perez that he would review the security cameras. On 04-11-2017 I reviewed the security cameras on property
Today, more so than ever, we have a great need to protect our families and property from those who wish to take it away or do us harm. A lot of the public is unaware of the crimes being committed on a daily basis. They are even more unaware of how many crimes are
Imagine living in a carefree world, it’s impossible but with the criminal justice system enacting laws to forbid illegal activity, crime has lessened nationwide. Several categories of crime such as guns, drugs, and organized crimes spark major concern. Crime has existed since human conscience was active. Gun violence is the illegal use of a firearm. Drug crimes are executed by one whom obtains, produces, and allots illegal substances. Organized crimes have several components, one that involves firearms, drugs, and the exchange of human beings for self-gain. This professional crime threatens the tranquility within our society, defies our rights as a human, and weakens all social and economic classes nationwide. Thanks to state-established programs, an extensive amount of crimes, globally, are eliminated, resulting in fewer criminals among the community. Numerous policies were formed to prevent the distribution of firearms and criminal gun crimes such as homicide. The Organized Crime Convention provides states a certain plan to battle organized crime. Crime has marked our history, and unfortunately, it will continue in the future. The criminal justice system is society’s response towards any violation of cultural norms. Advanced forensic procedures, together with the amount of news given by the public allows an offender to be tracked down. New and improved forensic technology aids scientists and investigators to conclude their ongoing criminal investigation. The criminal
More serious crimes that take place, such as serial murders, tend to intrigue us and disgust us. We wonder how individuals can possibly commit such heinous crimes. Crimes such as stolen property do not tend to get as much attention, although a hurtful offense to the victim, it does not have the shock factor that rape, murder, and arson have. In this discussion, I would like go through different ways we measure crime and which form tends to receive the most accurate
i think that when the actors were stealing the bike the people walking by were being sexist, stero typing, and racist. When the white guy actor was trying to steal the bike nobody stopped him. They asked if it was his and he said no, but they still didn't stop him. When the black guy actor was trying to steal the bike somebody stopped him in the first minute. When the first person yelled at him to stop a lot of other people rushed over. When the young white girl actor was stealing the bike nobody stopped her in fact mostly all of them (guys) helped her steal the bike. I think this was sexist because when the girl was stealing the bike people helped her steal it, but when the white, or black guy were stealing it they both got stopped and
In “Chapter Five: Chasing My Stolen Bicycle” by Justin Jouvenal law enforcement and prosecutors treat petty crime such as a stolen bike as if it’s nothing. They don’t care too much about it. Law enforcement agencies tend to prioritize on violent crimes since they are more harmful and make people more fearful. For instance, in “Chapter Seven: Duke Lacrosse Players Relieved Case has ‘Closure’” by The Associated Press, law enforcement, and prosecutors responded instantly to the serious allegations. This is because this case involved allegations of rape, kidnapping, and sexual assaults. On top of that, the district attorney had corrupt actions. This is a serious crime as opposed to a stolen bike that causes no physical harm to a person. This

Most thieves are really bad at what they do and end spending time incarcerated for their crimes. For the most part, it is true that crime doesn’t pay. (#!)

A February 2014 report by SFGate.com surmised that, bicycle riding by the Bay-City have risen dramatically, with an estimated number of about 75,000 cyclists taken to the streets every year. During this same period, the level of bicycle theft has gone overboard; with city analyst estimating that bicycle theft has increased by 70%.
