Murder in Detriot
The study and the investigation of the law enforcement and the criminal justice system provide the way for how to deal with crimes in a particular area. Specific areas in the crimes are reflected through the frequency, nature, location, causes, types and the response against the evils. Same is the case with Detriot city where alarming rates of crimes have alerted the authorities to tackle the issue in a befitting manner. There was a long term failure, and the future of town was threatened by gun violence. Nothing was in the control of Detriot wearied residents. For more than four years the city was considered as one of the most dangerous cities in the United States, and according to Forbes Magazine, there were record 400 homicides last year. Injuries and assaults with guns rise over the past few years.
The statistics of the Federal Bureau of Intelligence supported the fact that there were 600 crimes logged against one hundred thousand individuals in the community. The holding of a hearse parade also stimulated various city funeral directors through several neighborhoods. Living in the same district, these people have created different types of dispute against each other and contributed for increasing the violence rate. The surprising fact is that children are also involved in the crossfire and there is the evidence during the winter rash of juvenile gunfire (Farley, 2018). While having the carjacking, there was a six-year-old boy who shot with an AK-47 by a group of children. Further, the traffic accident happened among several men, and it turned into a violent shooting and lead to the death of a 12 years old boy.
The groups of people fatally killed the boy during their fighting who had just completed his work and standing in front of its door. These happening and cold-blooded murder of boy shows that violence is the matter of typical cases and there is no surprise for the community members to address the issues professionally. There is a fear of random firing, and people from other areas faced a critical situation and decided to complain for necessary action. Near the city airport and alongside forests there were bodies found by concerned authorities which are again alarming sign for the law enforcement agencies (Farley, 2018). One of the teenagers, Jacob Kudla was disappeared suddenly and found shot dead after buying marijuana in the city. Several terrible crimes contain teenagers who obtained weapons to commit the heinous criminalities. There are various stories and the incidents which show the way things are getting bad in the city; it certainly put a serious question on the performance of law enforcing agencies of the United States.
Community members and the authorities concerned with crimes became alerted to put the city in order and start their efforts. However, in devising the strategy and the countering the issues, there are certain hurdles. Among them is the lack of resources and installations of modern technology to fix the problem adequately. The shortfall in the budget led to the city to impose a 10 percent cut in across the police department of Detriot and reducing the shift with less than 12 hours. Even the sports activities were so difficult for the police to manage and they issued an alert that the team should handle their security (Finkel, 2016). The baseball fans attendance for the tiger game were also not secure. Specific technical measures and the programs are chosen by the state to curb the increasing ratios of violence and crimes.
First of all, there must be community policing and encouragement for the law enforcement agencies to implement their plan of action without having any trouble from the influenced group. It is the responsibility of the Mayor to open certain areas where people can trade their weapon for cash. With various incentives and allowances for those who sell their guns, the violence of firearms can be reduced effectively. The improvement in the relations of police and community members can result in real resources and measures in sustaining the quiet atmosphere of the city (McGuire, 2017). Further, youth violence prevention programs are some of the incentives that can be used for the participation of deviants in the community. Certain plan of action were also used by the administration of Obama when he was the president of the United States.
Law enforcement agencies or the police cannot reach every position, spot, and a point where the crime is going on. Some hidden people are supporting the criminal indirectly and through the illicit affairs in their mind. One of the significant gaps between the authorities and common man of Detriot is lack of trust and connect which are not a difficult task. The advancement of technology and the use of artificial intelligence can fill the distance and improve the social relationship. Education is the most significant tool that can support and provide understanding to the individuals not to choose the path of killing others and to live in a social setting with peaceful attempts. Parents have the same sense of responsibility, and they can change the thinking process of their children.
The massive campaign followed by the seminar and conferences in the city can also play a role for the progressive and sustainable community. There is an option of tracking down those gangs and people involved in the mass killing. By punishing these individuals the concerned authorities can send a message for those who are not restricting from violent activities (Price, 2017). It is the responsibility of the federal government to pick up some of the slack for the overburdened work on the police department. For the known criminals there must be harsh penalties to reduce the crime rate in the city. The awareness among the people can also support the personal resolution which in turn driving down the homicide rate of town. It is often challenging to rebuild the destructive area, and the chances for a rebuilding of Detriot remain slow in the coming year. There is an entire society and their transformation is something complicated. More than 40 percent of residents have informed the concerned authorities that they are moving away from this city to another.
A comprehensive plan of action along with support from the federal law enforcement authorities can solve the problem of crimes in Detriot city. Things are not as bad as the current statistics of FBI reveals that crimes have dropped by 20 percent which is significant and progressive number (Price, 2017). Illegal sources of an economy and the use of drugs for the fulfillment of economic conditions has provided the people to move for increase crimes and defend their business. A culture of stability and say no to crimes slogans are emerging in the city which will effectively and practically transform the community.
Concluding the discussion the increase criminal actions in the city of Detroit put the law enforcement agencies to come up with a comprehensive plan which must be based on fairness and justice. Rehabilitation of the city would provide ways for improvement and enhancing the trust of the public on the agencies concerned with law and order. Violation of civil rights and the use of force is not a solution; instead, it will contribute to more problems in the city.
