conducted a randomized-controlled study with the Rialto Police Department in California. The purpose of their study was to observe the effects of body-worn cameras on the frequency of use-of-force incidents as well as citizens’ complaints. In my research study, I will test only the effect of body-worn cameras on use-of-force incidents. I propose to study the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department in Indianapolis, Indiana. This research setting is a lot larger than Ariel, Farrer, and Sutherland’s
as the one in control of the situation. A lot of the times an officer is alone, and needs to be proficient with his or her ability to defend themselves and the general public. Not every situation calls for a use of force incident, and not every use of force incident should be a deadly force incident.

The Use of Force The point of view in the story “The Use of Force” is in first person narrative. This conveys inner the inner thoughts of the narrator as the doctor. The doctor is a reliable narrator and an observer. I feel that his personality is brought out in the doctor. So the doctors thoughts and behaviors are a reflection of the authors. As for the setting it takes place at a family’s home. I think it takes place somewhere in the early 1900's. I think it would make a difference to the story
War: Is Military Force Ever Justified? War has become a very sensitive, polarizing subject in the past few decades. Either it’s good or bad, right or wrong, black or white. Many people do not find any justification, even though no decision is more thought out than a country’s decision to use military force. for anything war-related because of the negative reality that it is war: violent, nasty, unyielding. All they see is an unprejudiced killing parade that rips lives apart. But what many people
Sammy Yatim was an 18 years old boy who got on a streetcar late during the night of July 26, 2013. Mark Rogan from Toronto Life describes what happened that night; four girls boarded and sat at the back of the car near Yatim. He proceeded to unzip his pants and expose himself, and a switchblade to the girls, causing them to scream. This caused a panic in all the other passengers, and they began to exit the streetcar despite Yatim’s demands to remain where they were. Once exiting the streetcar many
There has recently been a demand for the use of less than lethal weapons in the community, and country at large. To meet this demand, the Asheville Police Department will be adopting the use of Tasers. Though Tasers are potentially lethal, they can be used more safely that a handgun, yet are more incapacitating than chemical spray. The use of Tasers will be explained with training as technology and laws progress. The most important thing is that the use of Tasers always falls within the law.

Conflict with customers, conflict with orders, conflict with banks; it doesn’t matter because conflict is unescapable. So dealing with it and minimizing it are priorities in any efficient organization. Over the course of this semester we have been indoctrinated in the various forms conflict presents itself as
