Module Five Assignment two CJ120 Tammy Crane Prof: Whiting
Views: African American males feel unsafe in the presence of police or law enforcement. African American men typically feel that police and law enforcement treat them with extreme measures including brutality and bias. In some cases, the confrontation between these men and police has been tense and since the media reaches much more people it is in the news much more. The arrest rates are very high. The cases of violent arrests and death during arrest is higher than others. African Americans are treated unjustly in the criminal justice system. There are often examples where black men and women were forced into harsher deals than other races including white men or females. There are instances of cultural bias throughout the criminal justice system. Brock Turner was an instance where racial background showed us this. A white man rapes a woman behind a dumpster and is given far less time because he is a white college athlete than any other ethnicity. The courts and law enforcement are continually racially profiling African Americans Racial profiling is a long-standing system of bias in the law enforcement and legal community. It stems from racism and bias against another for any reason including race, age, sexual preference and many other cultural differences. Stop and Frisk was one such bias stopping black males walking down the street and making them submit to being searched at any time for no reason. They were interrogated for no reason other than being black and walking down the street. Misunderstandings The most common misunderstanding that happens in the criminal justice system in with languages and communication. With so many languages and dialects. There are interpreters but not in every situation does that help the situation. There are also issues with people who are hearing impaired or even someone who is nonverbal. My family has multiple members that are autistic and the spectrum that we have are all different. I learned finger spelling as a child and can somewhat help but not everyone is trained to speak other languages or deal with those with special needs of others. It makes sense for the police department to start training.
