Peace Officer Vs. Police Officer | Casida 2012

Peace Officer Vs. Police Officer | Casida 2012 | Gender and Crime | Scoop.it
Here's an interesting perspective that we don't see much in Alaska, but is common in the Western States of the Lower 48. Is this a potential solution to racial profiling? The Wren case essentially allows pre-text stops for minor violations even though the officer may subjectively really intend to use the stop to uncover another crime (e.g. drugs, weapons, etc.), thus officers use minor traffic violations to stop people who "look" like criminals. By shifting minor offences to a traffic force, would we eliminate the actual or threat of racial profiling?

Alexander Yakovlev's comment, June 2, 9:20 AM
I like how it says that it becomes epidemic of children being without their dad. But also, it is really upsetting that there are no real man in their community. Also, there are no work and nothing to do. Because of that women have to do everything. This is another example of gender differences and where women have to do everything in order to survive.

THIS IS OUT OF HANDS IN MY MIND. THERE YOU GO GENDER DIFFERENCES. WOMEN CAN LIE ABOUT RAPE AND EVERYONE WILL BELIEVE HER, AND THAT’S CRAZY. I KNOW IT’S NOT SIMPLE AS THAT, BUT TO WORD IT SIMPLY THAT’S HOW IT LOOKS. THERE ARE TWO THINGS I TOOK FROM THIS ARTICLE: ONE IS THAT 2 TO 8 PERCENT OF WOMEN LYING ABOUT THEM BEING RAPED, AND SECOND IS THAT REALITY SHOWS THAT RAPE REPORTS THAT TURN OUT TO BE FALSE ARE MORE LIKELY TO INVOLVE STRANGERS AND VIOLENCE.
