how does the entertainment interest hinder the accuracy of the public's perceptions of demestic and international orgaized crime?
3 ophelious Teacher Community / Jr. College Editor, Expert, Dickens, The Bard I'm not sure I like the word "hinder" here. [ That implies that people are trying to have an accurate understanding of organized crime and that Hollywood is resisting that. I don't think most folks really care if their perception is off a bit or not. Law enforcement officials know the truth, and that's what really
matters. The movies are probably a lot more exciting in their portrayal of life on a day to day basis for mobsters than it really is for those in a "crime ring." The media focuses on "unique characters," while most members of organized crime are probably pretty dull individuals who scam just enough to get by. ]

why should crimes be distinguished by the motivations of the perpetrator?
Weegy: Because motivations can reflect the character and level of depravity of the perpetrator. [ I mean stealing is stealing and killing is killing but there's a difference between stealing to keep your family alive and killing to save someone, and stealing for the hell of it and killing for the hell of it. So yeah, the motive should matter. Bias motivation is the key reason that bias crimes cause the harm they do. The resulting harm of a bias crime exceeds that of a similar crime lacking bias motivation on three levels: the nature of the injury sustained by the immediate victim of a bias crime; the palpable harm inflicted on the broader target community of the crime; and the harm to society at large. Gender-motivated violence and crimes targeting victims on the basis of sexual orientation, gender identity, and disability are as much bias crimes as are racially—and ethnically—motivated crimes. A broadened federal bias crime statute is warranted as a matter of constitutional law and public policy. As a matter of free expression, bias crime laws punish not the holding of beliefs or the expression of ideas, but the extension of these beliefs and ideas into violent behavior intended to cause harm to its victims. Moreover, there is constitutional authority for Congress to enact the law and it is part of our commitment to the equality ideal. Not all will agree on what exactly “the equality ideal” means. But none can deny that the commitment to equality is a core American principle. Bias crimes thus violate the national social contract—not only that of the local or state community—and require a federal response. ] (More)

how can headlights, airbags and wheels be better protected?
Weegy: While not foolproof, anti-theft devices can stop the amateur thief and slow down the professional. The longer it takes to steal a car, the more attention the thief attracts, and the more likely the thief will look elsewhere. [ Also, many car insurance companies offer discounts for certain anti-theft devices. Check with your agent for details. All vehicle theft prevention equipment helps deter criminals. Many anti-theft devices are also effective in protecting your vehicle from burglaries and vandalism. Consider adding some or all of the anti-theft devices listed below to help protect your vehicle. ] (More)
