In his speech, the president talked about the progress in the criminal justice reform and helping those who are suffering from the prescriptions drugs. He continued on with talking about problems that he hopes to find solutions for them in the years ahead such as protecting the children from gun violence and equal pay for equal work. He talked about how the country was in technological change time and that change is making an impact on people’s lives and the planet they live in. He talked about the positives and negatives of having technological advances. Positives in the help it gives in educational and medical purposes and negatives in the fact that it gives benefits to the terrorists. But even with all that he still told the Americans to
There are three significant issues concerning law enforcement, namely enacting the law, police discretion, and assessment of criminal behavior. Different entities create and enact laws that are specific for the societies those laws represent.
Prisons where essentially build to accommodate a number of prisoners but over the years it has reach over capacity. Today in the United States there are approximately 193,468 federal inmates that consisting of the Bureau of Prisons Custody, private managed facilities and other facilities. The inmates ages range from 18- 65 with the median age being in their late 30’s. This number is counting both male and female population with male being 93.3% of inmates and females being 6.7%. The number of inmates has steadily increase since 1980 with only having approximately less than 50,000 but today the number has gone more up. Drug offenses are the highest number for inmate’s imprisonment, the next highest offense would be weapons, explosives and arson; immigration and miscellaneous fall next in lines. The number for the other offenses such as robbery, extortion, fraud, bribery, burglary, larceny, property offenses and other offenses are lower. Overcrowding prison has become problematic as the prison population continue to increase leading to proper care and attention for prisoners.
Attention Getter: "I did not deserve to die that night. It was not my time." "I pray for the person who has done this to me. I wish he could feel the pain that he put me through." (Barnum, 2003).
The American Flag is perhaps the most symbolic piece of art representing the United States; the 50 stars represent the 50 states; the colors symbolize valor, purity and justice; and the 13 stripes represent the 13 original colonies. But for some, these stripes also represent the 2.2 million people held in the American criminal justice system, moreover they represent the disproportionate rate that minorities in the U.S. are incarcerated. What some consider the greatest democracy in the world, is really a camera-obsucra, inverting the reality of what freedom and justice mean in the United States. Nixon’s war on drugs during the 1970’s, that declared drugs as the most important public enemy, leading to the spike in racial and ethnic
The speech “I have a dream” changed to world. It affected millions of American citizens. All of this was because his well written speech. This shows how important it is to put some tough into the speech instead of
In the beginning of the speech he uses pathos, or emotion, which is a way of convincing an audience of an argument by creating an emotional response. George W Bush says, “Thousands of lives were suddenly ended by evil, despicable acts of terror. The pictures of airplanes flying into buildings, fires burning, huge -- huge structures collapsing have filled us with disbelief, terrible sadness, and a quiet, unyielding anger. These acts of mass murder were intended to frighten our nation into chaos and retreat” (1). He tries to catch his audience by talking about all the bad things, and lives ended, but then states, “But they have failed. Our country is strong” (1).
The purpose of this speech was, overall, to address the tragic acts of terrorism. President Bush accomplishes this in an informative and effective manner through his elegiac tone throughout the speech. This mournful way of writing gives a respectful and empathetic feeling to the address. This is incredibly important, as many people were feeling grief, loss, fear, and heartache at the time. Another purpose for the speech is to call the American people to action. President Bush, through his use of imperative statements, successfully rallies his audience to action. After describing some upcoming changes to the government, he said “These measures are essential. But the only way to defeat terrorism as a threat to our way of life is to stop it, eliminate it, and destroy it where it grows” (“George Bush Speech”). This imperative statement gets the audience feeling determined to do their part to destroy terrorism. Soon after, he said, “I have a message for our military: Be ready. I’ve called the Armed Forces to alert, and there is a reason. The hour is coming when America will act, and you will make us proud” (“George Bush Speech”). This specifically calls the military to action, which is a critical aspect of the speech. President Bush also uses this speech as an opportunity to thank people who made a difference in the tragic event, saying “I thank the Congress for its leadership at such an important time”, “I thank the world for its outpouring of support”, and, “…I thank you for your
The Criminal Justice System has undergone numerous, yet significant, changes within the last century. In fact, current research reflects the progressive movement from one of rehabilitation to that of punishment and retribution. Such transition reflects issues pertaining to the management and supervision and treatment of offenders. This study will, therefore, consider and evaluate dilemmas within the Criminal Justice System, as well as, issues that have transpired while trying to reduce crime through punishment. Furthermore, the Criminal Justice System will be discussed through a law perspective regarding supervision and management in order to understand the current challenges and issues involving crime.
“We are a nation that professes freedom, yet we have this mass incarceration, this hyper-incarceration, that is trawling into it, grinding into it, our most vulnerable citizenry, and is overwhelmingly biased towards people of color.” Booker’s quote serves to question the hypocrisy of our “democratic” government leaders. The American government has two faces: one for whites and the other for minorities. It comes out into the public and wears garments that portray freedom and equality for all. However, it reveals its bare self when it incarcerates and abuses minorities’ freedom to make rich white men more wealthy and powerful.
The human and economic costs of mass incarceration have become untenable, which is why politicians on both sides of the political spectrum, as well as police chiefs and civil rights groups, have made reform a priority, though they may not necessarily agree on the specifics of reform. The primary issues that you will hear a great deal about in 2016
There have been a number of changes within the legal and criminal justice system in the last 3-4 decades. History remembers, for example, the Kent State and Chicago Democratic Convention riots in 1968, and since then, a number of criminologists and political scientists have been asked about the use of force, rights-based policing, community involvement, and crime prevention (Russell 2005). The Red Cross and Amnesty International, for instance, have endorsed a rights-based policing model. This idea tempers all police activity with the basic tenet of human rights and rights under the Constitution. Central to this argument is the nature of the relationship between the community and the Criminal Justice System. Local law enforcement bond with community members to implement the day-to-day needs of that community. The idea centers around a basic philosophical tenet: use less force, communicate more, pay attention to human rights, and work to dialog and prevent, not to punish and incarcerate (Williamson 2008).
He managed to present control and unity between two opposing forces. He talked about all he would deal with as a president as well as a global icon who was working hard for global peace. Towards the end of his speech, her noted that , "I do not shrink from this

He briefly talked about how Americans will feel safer when we have a better military. He said this is something that needs to be done as soon as possible because President Obama’s government had been falling back on the same promise. He said his government will work on purchasing the F18 and F 35 air crafts as the country needs them for protection. He said the companies that make the aircraft's need to spend more time in the States as they are always in other countries. He ended off this topic by saying we need these Aircrafts for the protection of American
As I prepared for my first exam and paper for criminal justice I began to do a list of things from rough drafts, preparing questions to read out loud, and playing the piano on my computer. During preparation for the exam I first went through all my notes, read them out loud and wrote down all the key terms, highlighted facts and people’s names that followed the headings. Following writing new questions aside from the study guide I asked a friend to quiz me. I find this to be a great way, to help memorize the material and retain it for longer periods of time. In preparation for my essay, I create my rough drafts to simulate my notes and be outlines mapping out the materials main focus of each paragraph, the outline shows key points, quotes,
