Question and answer
What does empirical evidence suggest about whether using racial profiling to search vehicles is an effective law enforcement strategy? (Points : 1) There are as of yet no decisive
conclusions. Hit rates in car searches are higher for people of color. Racial profiling is practical and productive. Racial profiling is counterproductive.
No , it is not a good thing police officers use racial profiling , because Racial profiling is a blatant violation of the Fourteenth Amendment. The Fourteenth Amendment states, very clearly, [ [ that no state may "deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws." Racial profiling is, by definition, based on a standard of unequal protection. Blacks and Latinos are
more likely to be searched by police and less likely to be treated as law-abiding citizens; whites are less likely to be searched by police and more likely to be treated as law-abiding citizens. This is incompatible with the concept of equal protection. ] ]

How does geographic location play a role in the quality of representation provided by the public defender?
Weegy: The term public defender is primarily used to refer to a lawyer appointed to represent people who cannot afford to hire an attorney in the United States and Brazil. [ It is also a literal translation of the Spanish-language term defensor del pueblo, which usually refers to an ombudsman office, and is the English-language title of the Jamaican ombudsman. In civil law countries, following the model from the French Napoleonic Code of criminal procedure, the courts typically appoint private attorneys at the expense of the state. As a rule defense attorneys in such countries are not directly employed by the government. ] (More)

d. This discussion highlights two issues – wrongful conviction and the overburdened public defender system. How can these problems be solved?
Weegy: Lawmakers must come up with better funding for the state police?s DNA lab and the overburdened court system, [ [ according to a panel created by the Florida Supreme Court to examine wrongful convictions. The Florida Innocence Commission made clear in a final report Thursday, that woeful funding is putting defendants at risk. ?We cannot avoid the reality that a number of the problems in our system in our system of justice deal with the issue of adequate funding,? wrote Belvin Perry Jr., a chief circuit judge in Orlando who headed the commission, created in December 2009 to examine why people are wrongfully convicted of crimes. ?Prosecutors, public defenders, and the courts are overburdened and do not have adequate tools and resources to keep pace with the volume and complexity of the cases before them.? The commission was formed after DNA testing showed that a list of Florida men in recent years had been wrongfully convicted of crimes. Holding meetings around the state, the panel heard testimony about the most common reasons for wrongful convictions, including incorrect eyewitness testimony, false scientific evidence and false confessions. The group made other recommendations, including urging the Legislature to mandate that police electronically record suspect interrogations, establish certified training for crime scene technicians and possibly issue special jury instructions dealing with jailhouse witnesses. Funding woes quickly became the major culprit as the panel heard testimony. Thursday?s final report comes as the Florida Association of Defense Lawyers is preparing legal challenges to a new and controversial system of paying private lawyers that the organization says will harm defendants. Senate Bill 1960, passed in March, created a ?limited registry? pool of lawyers that will accept flat fees for court-appointed cases. The catch: lawyers in the pool cannot ask for additional money. A third-degree felony, punishable by up to five years in ... (More)

How has this “war” impacted African-American males?
Weegy: World War I was a transformative moment in African-American history. What began as a seemingly distant European conflict soon became an event with revolutionary implications for the social, economic, and political future of black people. [ The war directly impacted all African Americans, male and female, northerner and southerner, soldier and civilian. Migration, military service, racial violence, and political protest combined to make the war years one of the most dynamic periods of the African-American experience. Black people contested the boundaries of American democracy, demanded their rights as American citizens, and asserted their very humanity in ways both subtle and dramatic. Recognizing the significance of World War I is essential to developing a full understanding of modern African-American history and the struggle for black freedom. ] (More)
