Week 9 individual for Justice in the Community

timer Asked: Sep 5th, 2015

Question description

Violence is on the rise. However this does not necessarily mean that crime rates are on the rise as well. Fifty years ago, gangs fought with clubs and knives. Today, gangs run gun shipments and most are armed with automatic weapons. Think about how easy it is for a person to obtain a gun today to inflict harm; some gangs have even been caught with rocket launchers and other high tech weaponry designed to cause major amounts of damage.

Please answer the following questions:

  • What do you think are the primary contributors to the level of violence in society today?
  • What can the police do to control and reduce violence?

Please remember that your homework assignment should be written in your own words. You cannot simply find an article and cut and paste it and then submit it as your assignment. You should use scholarly resources to support your opinion, however citing your work and giving authors appropriate credit is very important. If an idea is not your own, you must cite your work – this includes paraphrasing. (Please refer to the school's plagiarism policy for more information). Furthermore, all citations and references need to be in APA format.

WRITING TIP: If you have a scholarly resource listed in your references, then that resource needs to be also cited somewhere in the body of the paper. If you have a citation in the body of the paper, then that means it also needs to be listed in your references.

UNACCEPTABLE RESOURCES: The following resources should not be used in your academic careers. These sources allow any user to add or change information, which means they are not credible or scholarly. Typically, you should avoid using websites that end in .com; you should be using websites that are .org or .edu. This is not an extensive list, but these are the most common sites used:

  • Wikipedia.com
  • Sampleessays.com
  • blurtit.com
