because they thought or act the same way the other people did. In which there
were many incidents that others could have helped but don’t help.
Why did police
not want to get involved in this incident?
This case was
over a woman that got out of work and was assaulted by a random person. She was
running till over street in front of an apartment building the assaulter caught
up to her and stabbed her 4 times. Her screams were loud and could be well
arrayed around the entire area, but nobody called the police. When the guy
heard someone yelling out of the window, he ran back to his car while the woman
managed to get up and went around the corner still screaming. She collapsed right
in the hallway of the building. There was one apartment above and was occupied.
The person opened his door when the killer came back to stab the woman another
8 times and bleed to death. But the shock to the city was not the murder of the
person but that a person got murdered and neighbors watched and didn’t do anything
about it. This was an initiative of the impetus for research on the psychological
phenomenon that became known as the “Bystander Effect” by
psychologists John Darley and Bibb Latané. So, they created two
experiments: the first one failed but the second one their theory was clearly
proved. That in most situations that most people when its one person compared
to a group of 4/5 people is that you are much less likely to respond yourself.
The responsibility that the individual feels for helping is defused when there
are other people who can also help.

They also may turn
over the case. The police did confirm that the officer they refused to name was
unpaid administrated while this continues to be investigated and that this
incident should be only on the veteran officer and not reflected on the good actions
of the department as a whole. And to keep the victim’s mom informed with everything
based on this case.
How might the
police handle this incident?

Also, that there was a mysterious fire erupted
destroying the surveillance video which would have otherwise captured the
incident leading to Ms. Willard’s death.
the victim’s personal properties and vehicles were supposed to be released and
if any effort to destroy that evidence will only further implicate the
department in what appears to be a department wide up cover
the victim’s attorney of what he heard from the family about the police. His
beliefs played a role in Daniel’s death, that the same officer named in court
cases county is trying to dismiss for missing of credible evidence. I think that
the implication of a corruption is that the same name comes in every report. (2013, March 21). Retrieved January 10, 2018, from

The police job
from today and 100 years ago is somehow different but not completely. Then you
had thief-takers, who tries to gain pardon from the king for their own crimes.
Sometimes criminals also did accept to be thief-takers, so they will get profit
out of it.
Is the police
job much different today from what it was 100 years ago?
the police of the 19th century with the police of today, there’s a
few changes. The police in the 19th century had a system of mutual
pledge of tithing (10 families) and 10 tithings (100 families) that was under
the charge of constable. The Shire-reeve (sheriff) oversaw the shires (county).
Back in the day the public helped the police with the methods of hue and cry
(cry for help) & watch and ward (that all men were required to serve on
it.) Basically, there is just one thing to take in consideration that the
police are part of the public and public can also be police.
How have public
attitudes toward police changed? Why?
contrast the police of the 19th century with the police of today.
I hope that
when I get my bachelor’s degree I can fulfill my dreams of a CSI. Not so sure
in which direction precisely but I can assure is that I have always liked mystery
and solving things.
What do you hope to do with your degree after graduation?
I choose to come
to WSC because of the opportunities, this college was offering. In Curaçao I didn’t
have such variety of choices. It was either be a business major or pharmacy.
Why did you select Wayne State College?
My major is Criminal Justice. I want to do a minor
subject as well but I’m quite still undecided.
What is your major?
My name is
Supharmy. I come from a little island in the Caribbean called Curaçao. I’m currently
an 18-year-old freshman. I’m a caring, social, also a little shy type of person.
