Crime And Drugs

WHY I BELIEVE IN VOLUNTARY EUTHANASIA There are at least two forms of suicide. One is 'emotional suicide', or irrational self-murder in all of it complexities and sadness. Let me emphasis at once that my view of this tragic form of self-destruction is the same as that of the suicide intervention movement and the rest of society, which is to prevent it wherever possible. I do not support any form of suicide for mental health or emotional reasons. But I do say that there is a second form of suicid
To uphold the law through the investigation of violations of federal criminal law; to protect the U.S. from foreign intelligence and terrorist activities; to provide leadership and law enforcement assistance to federal, state, local, and international agencies; and to perform these responsibilities in a manner that is responsive to the needs of the public and is faithful to the constitution of the U.S.: this is the mission of the Federal Bureau of Investigation. The agency now known as the Fede
Thesis: Government Censorship would damage the atmosphere of the freedom to express ideas on the Internet; therefore, government should not encourage censorship. Introduction I. In the Internet community, there is a large volume of technical terms. For this reason, it is first necessary to examine the terminology specific to Internet. 1.The internet is a world wide computer network. 1.Electronic mail (email), which is one component of the Internet, approximates person to person letters, memorand
Marijuana Some call it the demon weed some call it just plane fun well here is the official statistics on the plant known as Marijuana. For starters we’ll go with the health part of the plant. Many “Educational” and or other health videos in school have you believe that Marijuana is going to ruin your life and leave you brain dead, but there has been no known proof that it has had any long term brain damage to the human brain. The only damage suggested by American Medical Association (AMA) is th
EUTHANASIA An eighty-seven year old grandmother on a respirator, a newborn child with AIDS, and a father in a coma; all put to death by respectable doctors with the O.K. of their families. But is it really ³O.K.²? Euthanasia, or doctor-assisted suicide, has become as common as jumping off of a fifteen story building or taking a gun to one¹s own head. Certainly society frowns upon suicide, but yet putting an old lady or a man in a coma to death is being accepted every day. Society knows that sui
In a world full of fears, perhaps the worst one a human being should have is that to be afraid of his fellow man. The human that should be most feared is the one that has Anti-Social Personality Disorder or in laymen’s terms the psychopath. The psychopath is probably the most deviant mind that exists and treatment is not very successful because there is not a cure or drug to control it. The solution in my mind to control the problem of sociopaths is to let them live in colonies with each other.
Abortion is a very complicated issue with many moral and political, ethical, religious, and economic factors. It is defined as the termination of a pregnancy after, accompanied by, resulting in, or closely followed by death of the embryo or fetus. Abortion is the most common surgery in the United States. Approximately 4000 abortions are performed each day. An abortion is a surgery where a long metal tool is placed inside the vagina where it is used to hold open the walls apart. Then the doctor t
The United States of America has always been regarded as the land of opportunity. Other countries look to us and see how successful and prosperous we are, realize that this is the place where dreams come true. The place where a fantasy can become reality. Yet this is not the case. How can place so rich, be so poor? How can such a multicultural place be so segregated? Why is it that you can hand the world to one child, yet cheat another? Where did we go wrong? Does the future of our children lay

Trends in drug use among youth are indirectly attributable to trends in society. Although drugs have always been around in one form or another, their early influences on society trace back to just before the 1930’s. Marijuana was a popular drug among Mexican laborers, jazz musicians, and so-called beatniks. Then after major social changes that took place in 1930, "The government cracked down on marijuana use." "In 1937, the Marijuana Tax Act…made the use and sale of marijuana without a tax stamp
OVERVIEW OF GANGS Originally the word gang had no negative connotation. In Old English, gang simply referred to a "number of people who went around together-a group." Today a gang can be defined in four basic ways: • an organized group with a leader • a unified group that usually remains together during peaceful times as well as times of conflict • a group whose members show unity through clothing, language • a group whose activities are criminal or threatening to the larger society. Gangs are o
: The failure of Gun Control Laws Americans are faced with an ever-growing problem of violence. Our streets have become a battleground where the elderly are beaten for their social security checks, where terrified women are viciously attacked and raped, where teenage gangster shoot it out for a patch of turf to sell their illegal drugs, and where innocent children are caught daily in the crossfire of drive-by shootings. We cannot ignore the damage that these criminals are doing to our society, a
Sexual Harassment The multimillion-dollar awards made by juries in sexual harassment cases suggests that people are overreacting to the problem, and lawyers are taking advantage of these profitable cases (Glazer). Sexual harassment is hard to define, easy to allege, and very costly to wealthy companies. Many people allege that they have been sexually harassed, but where is the line drawn in a changing society with morals differing from person to person. What’s offensive to one is totally accepta
Since the formation of the United States to the present date, the crime rate and the rights of the accused have greatly increased, while the rights of the law-abiding citizen have decreased. To more fully protect society, and to attempt to reduce the crime rate, we must therefor increase the power the law enforcement agencies have. The most logical place to start would be the search and seizure laws, for they inhibit the power to stop trouble at its source. The Fourth Amendment is quoted thus:
Legality Although it is clear that society is unhappy with current efforts to stop illegal drug smuggling, illegal drug use and distribution, no one seems to know what should be done. With drug use and drug related crime on the rise, some Americans argue that current drug legislation is too easy on drug offenders. Society at large asks, "Can we ever stop illegal drugs and their use?" It is a question that unfortunately has no easy answer. More and more people in America feel that if this country
Abortion has been practiced since the beginning of civilization. In ancient Assyria abortion was a crime and if caught, the woman was killed on a stake and not allowed to be buried. Through the Middle Ages and the Renaissance in Europe abortion was legal until the Catholic church conflicted. In 1588 Pope Sixtus V called abortion the same as murder and subject to the same penalties. But within 3 years Pope Gregory XVI eliminated penalties if abortion was before 40 days after conception. In 1869
GANGS Gangs are a violent reality that people have to deal with in today's cities. What has made these groups come about? Why do kids feel that being in a gang is both an acceptable and prestigious way to live? The long range answer to these questions can only be speculated upon, but in the short term the answers are much easier to find. On the surface, gangs are a direct result of human beings' personal wants and peer pressure. To determine how to effectively end gang violence we must find the
Gambling has become such a large part of Americans way of life that it has become socially acceptable. New kinds of gambling are being introduced every year as a way to boost the economy, create jobs, etc. But there is a high human cost. Although it might create revenues, it also creates problems similar to drug abuse. In its compulsive form, gambling can act like a disease such as alcoholism or cigarette addiction. It can also often lead to suicide. Gambling affects the poor the most, who also
America Under Invasion The American family is being attacked by many problems. Some of them can be solved easily. Some of the problems may never be conquered. There are families who are strong and come together to overcome their dilemma. On the other hand, some families don’t care what happens to them. These problems can and more than likely be a constant struggle. One of the major problems everyone must face is drugs. Many teenagers, as well as adults, do not realize the effect of drugs. First,
Development Economics: Evaluate the validity of using National Income statistics as an indicator of standard of living and as a comparison of economic development between different countries. National Income is an indicator of standard of living measured by output, expenditure or income in one year. The reason that these three factors are the chosen methods of calculation is that they can all be calculated fairly easily Ð as long as the data is recorded. The average income in a country determin
The Legalization of Marijuana for All Purposes Drugs are major problem in our society today. Although the Canadian government has taken measures against drugs, in stiffening laws concerning the cultivation and trafficking of drugs and various media awareness programs, the problem continues to get worse. The government is exercising many options to control the problem or even solve the problem. It seems as if the "war on drugs" is a futile war or at least next to impossible to win. The governmen
Brave New World (1932) is one of the most insidious works of literature ever written. An exaggeration? Tragically, no. Brave New World has come to serve as the false symbol for any regime of universal happiness. So how does Huxley turn a future where we're all notionally happy into the archetypal dystopia? If it's technically feasible, what's wrong with using biotechnology to get rid of mental pain altogether? Brave New World is an unsettling, loveless and even sinister place. This is because H
Here we are today moving rapidly towards the twenty first century, facing the same problems we endured for centuries in the past. Earthquakes shake the earth, floods destroy cities, and crime is more serious than ever. Some of our most serious problems are natural occurrences which we can not control. Crime and criminals are a societal plague that we can at least attempt to alter. If a crime is committed the justice system can punish the offender. That sounds logical enough. Punishment is imple
Title: Deadly Drugs a Town in Crises (from the Magazine Teen People) Heron has killed 11 teenagers, In two years heron has kill 11 of Plano, brightest teenagers. (Good Evening, my name is John Carter) This evening we are going to talk about and discuss drug abuse in a small town in America. Who: Rob Hill, an 18 year old died in the same hospital he was born in. The article claims that he live the life style in which most American’s would envy. He was also raise in a home with a living family.
It is January 16, 1991, and the green light has been given to move out, the Persian Gulf War is now for real. Mark Daniels is among the pilots with the first set of planes that are scheduled to attack Iraq. Mark is one of the top pilots in the Gulf at a young age of 23. Not only does Mark possess the intellectual skills that it takes to be a top fighter pilot, but he also has one of the toughest bodies. He is known to be able to handle more G’s than any other pilot in military history without p
Death to the Death Penalty The death penalty is the punishment used in 38 states, and many other countries, as a way of disposing the people in society who are mentally or emotionally disturbed, love their families very much, have a bad temper, or just plain made a mistake. These reasons account for many homicides that take place each year. Capitol Punishment is just not humane and should not be legal. The argument most often used to support the death penalty in former-Soviet republics is the n
Is it fair to punish someone for a crime that they may not have committed? Should an Olympic athlete be punished for taking a drug that does not affect his performance, or give him a disadvantage over his competitors? As many of you may have heard, Ross Rebagliati is the Canadian snowboarder that won the first ever Olympic Gold Medal for snowboarding. After he won, The International Olympic Committee announced his disqualification from the Olympics, and that he was to be stripped of his medal,
Needle Exchange Programs More than a million people in the United States inject drugs, at a cost to society (in health care, lost productivity, accidents, and crime) of more than fifty billion dollars a year. (Holland n.p.). According to the Department of Health and Human Services, there were 216,000 heroin addicts nationwide in 1996, the latest year for which statistics are available.(Wickenheiser n.p.) One third of all AIDS cases are due to injection drug use. For women, sixty-four percent of
The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) The agency now known as the Federal Bureau of Investigation originated from a force of Special Agents created in 1908 when Attorney General Charles Bonaparte appointed an unnamed force to be the investigative force of the Department of Justice (DOJ) under the Presidency of Theodore Roosevelt. Before that time the Department of Justice often had to borrow Agents from the U.S. Secret Service to investigate violations of federal criminal laws within its ju
It was April, and El Nino was pelting the rooftop in full force. The rain came down in buckets, only to let up for a few seconds, then resume with a crash of thunder and a torrential downpour. Detective Jack Barretta hated being called out on a case on days like this. He and his partner, Wally Cruz got the call to go to the scene of a homicide on the East side of town. A body had been found in a batchelor's apartment apparently stabbed to death in a home invasion robbery. When Jack and Wally ar
This research paper is going to discuss what excessive drinking and vast amounts of alcohol can do to people. This research paper can and will also tell a little about the history and background of alcohol. Then the paper will lead to the health effects of alcohol on people mental and psychical inside and outside. Then from there it will talk about some statistics of alcohol related traffic accidents and rapes on collage campus. This research paper is also taking the down side or bad side of al
The statement that the serial killer is addicted to what he does cannot be properly supported without a discussion of addiction. While the pharmacological examples such as alcoholism and heroin addiction are still the clearest examples of addiction, new models of addictive behavior including exercise addiction, compulsive gambling, and even sexual addiction have gained acceptance. Just as alcoholism was once thought to be a conscious choice, these latter examples have long been thought to be th
DRUG ABUSE In the United States of America, we, the people value several things, some of which are freedom, expanding and taking care of our families and our financial security. We, the people, take such things for granted. We also discourage some behavior, such as crime, laziness and use of illegal drugs. Drug abuse is one of the most discouraged behaviors in our country. Use of illegal drugs is harmful to the user and all those with whom the user comes in contact. There are over 40 million il
When he was 20, Nathan McCall shot a man who made an offensive comment about his girlfriend. He robbed a McDonald’s. He sold drugs. He broke into homes, stole cars and gang-raped girls. He went to prison. There, he read Richard Wright’s Native Son and became fascinated with words. He “got into his spirituality,” and decided to “give life a try life on the other side of the fence.” Since then he has used words to convey his anger and his message: race itself does not make people violent. A colum
Forensic science uses sophisticated laboratory techniques to detect the presence of substances in the victim, in the suspected criminal, or at the crime scene. For example, in determining whether alcohol was involved in a crime, the amount of alcohol in the blood can be measured in two ways. One is to measure the amount of alcohol exhaled in the breath of an individual, which reveals the concentration of alcohol in the person's blood. Recent advances in technology have produced alcohol breath-t
What is Euthanasia?   Euthanasia is defined by The American Heritage Dictionary as "the action of killing an individual for reasons considered to be merciful" (469). Here, killing is described as the physical action where one individual actively kills another. Euthanasia is tolerated in the medical field under certain circumstances when a patient is suffering profoundly and death is inevitable. The word "euthanasia" comes from the Greek eu, "good", and thanatos, "death," literally, "good death"
History of Rock and Roll In the early 50’s, at the end of the big band swing era, came a form of music that, like others, parents would reject and their children would love. This type of music is known as Rock and Roll. Rock and Roll is defined as a popular type of music played on electric instruments and characterized by a strong beat and much repetition. Simply this means music that kids like, music that parents hate, and in some places banned from schools. Although there are many different t
Legalization of Marijuana There are several reasons to legalize marijuana. Marijuana is a drug that comes from the plant Cannabis sativa. When you smoke marijuana, the chemical tetrahydrocannabinol goes into your brain and makes you feel “high”. That is why it is classified as a minor psychedelic. It does not produce a “trip”, or full psychedelic experience, like other drugs such as mushrooms, acid or other such hallucinogens. Marijuana was first used by the ancient Chinese in the year 2000, BC
This paper will examine the argument for community systems of care collaborating in order to prevent juvenile delinquency. The literature regarding the need for such cooperation and the benefit of such arrangements will be explored. Further, the components of successful programs will be identified. To prevent delinquency before it occurs, we must start with the community as a whole. The community being family, education (schools), police, church, and peers. The family must support the child fro
Marijuana....Atleast It’s Not Cocaine Anorexia, Asthma, Nausea, Pain, Alcoholism, Glaucoma, Epilepsy, Depression, Migraine, Anxiety, Insomnia, Cancer: These are just some of the diseases that can benefit from the use of marijuana. Currently, the possession and smoking of marijuana is illegal except in a few rare instances. It is time that the government gets over the sociopolitical stereotype of marijuana usage by only hippies and teenagers and start to realize that marijuana has several far re
Juvenile delinquency may be regarded as an extreme consequence of a child's unsuccessful interation with one of the more elements. Poverty, racial tensions, family conflict, peer pressure, mental and physical abililities , or inadequate educational oppurtunities may individually or collectively by factorss that negatively affect the child. "Why can't they be like we were, perfect in every way, what's the matter with kids today?" This song taken from the 1950’s musical "Bye Bye Birdie" shows two
Gangs Gangs are a big problem of society these days. Gangs are usually formed by kids that have problems in their household or in their life but not neccissarily. Popular belief is that all gangs consist of colored people or poor people. That is not always true and is usually that statement is made by racists or people biased against poor people. There are many different kind of gangs around: African-Americans, Latinos, Skinheads, Caucasians, and Asians. Some are mixed. Another type of a gang i
Temperance and Prohibitionism in the United States Prohibition and Temperance played a major role in the growth of America. As a nation, we learned that Prohibition did not benefit society as we hoped it would. We hoped that by extracting alcohol from society would, eliminate public drunkenness and better the family. Instead it lead to a higher crime rate. The smuggling or bootlegging of alcoholic beverages into the country provided great opportunity since, people continued to consume alcoholic
Mafia in the United States By Ian Barber English 1, June 1998 The American Mafia, which emerged during Prohibition as a wealthier and more violent successor to local city gangs, has been virtually eclipsed as a major actor in the U.S. criminal world. In the late 1800's, southern Italians attempted to reproduce the Mafia in the United States. The Mafia today is more greatly related to Italy then ever before. Italy has now become even more notorious of the Mafia then in the past. The Mafia unfort
SHOULD DRUGS BE LEGALIZED? There is a lot of controversy over whether or not drugs should be legalized. People will argue to no end on each side. Some people say drugs should be legalized because they have the idea that people are going to do them anyway, so why not legalize it? People on the other side say drugs shouldn’t be legalized no matter what the reason because they are harmful for the people that use them and also for others around the people on the drugs. I think drugs should not be l
Underage Drinking Alcohol is a word that brings many mixed emotions to many different kinds of people. To alcoholics it means something untouchable, the catalyst for their deadly disease. For teens it means freedom, carelessness, having a good time. To parents it is a fearful word… will my child be killed in a drunk driving accident? But alcohol will not go away. This statement has been proven time and again, with the most obvious example being the Prohibition of the 1930’s. When people could n
The Scarlet Letter, written by Nathaniel Hawthorne, tells the story of a woman punished for adultery, a guilty- cowardly- lover and an aging, vengeful, husband. One theme played out in this story is the effect sin has on the individual. Hester Prynne, Reverend Arthur Dimmesdale and Roger Chillingworth echo the theme of the effect of sin on the individual. 1Hester Prynne is a perfect example of the effect of sin on the individual through her physical isolation. 2Hester separated herself from tow
On the night of August 4, 1962, Marilyn Monroe died of a fatal dose of barbiturates. At first, the drugs were thought to be taken orally as in case of suicide, but the longer the case went on, the more they found out. Mariln Monroe did not commit suicide. There is not enough evidence for suicide. For instance, the evidence of empty pill bottles in Monroe’s bedroom only helps the prosecution. It was initially assumed that Marilyn swallowed them. It would have been impossible for Marilyn to swall
During the 1960’s drug use was common and widespread in the United States. While still illegal, the punishments were not nearly as severe as they are today. Beginning in the early 70’s society struggled with the idea of such heavy drug use and responded with a war on drugs, making drug use an illegal activity. America’s war on drugs has continued until today, and despite our government’s efforts drug use is still widespread. The war on drugs is an ineffective way to curb drug use. America shoul
Poverty Marcelo Ortiz Period ¾ $ 520,000,000,000. This amount of money represents the net worth of just 2 of the top Fortune 500 companies of the world. There are many problems in the world today, with the most destructive problem being poverty. This is the worst because it kills and leaves many homeless and hungry everyday. It is also the worst problem because it would be the easiest to resolve. The way to solve it is to have all the world leaders pool together their money and give it to the p
