Request Description

How are the roles and responsibilities of past policing eras different from today? How effective would policing methods of the past be today? Would our society accept these past methods? Explain your answer.
Police behavior is based on how much the government perceives it can get away with. This has always been the case. The way that it has trashed the fourth amendment of the constitution recently, regarding habius corpus, rights to trail arrests requirements, etc., would never had been tolerated by society in the late 1960's / early 1970's, for example. The police themselves are simply obeying policy a set down by the government.

 

Conversely, policies such as arrest for vagrancy, as used to be common practice, would not be tolerated by society now.

 

If you think that a wider police presence with more authority to do what it wants will lead to less trouble, think again. Every nation with relatively harsher police tactics has correspondingly higher rates of crime.
