    It started out easy enough. Over a hundred agents from the Bureau of Alcohol Tobacco and Firearms would pack themselves shoulder-to-shoulder inside cattle trailers, and pull up to the front of the building in broad daylight. At the cry of "ShowTime!" The agents would pour out, divide into four columns, and storm the building. Some would surround the building, others would take ladders to the right side, go into the second floor with flash-bang grenades, and still others would storm the front door with battering rams. The dogs would be sprayed with fire extinguishers and, if they

    Why Police Become Criminals

    1062 words, 5 pages

    It seems like more police have become criminals. “Now it seems cops have gone into competition with street criminals.” (Newsweek, Oct. 21,1992: pg.18) Some police use their power to commit crimes, and society has come to fear officers. In many urban neighborhoods civilians have started to not trust the police and have opted not to cooperate or communicate with law enforcement for this reason. The law enforcement system needs a make over. We must stop the corruption in the police force. Our laws have allowed individuals to slip through the cracks of our justice system.

    In 1910, a Los Angeles social worker named Alice Stebbins Wells became the country's first full-fledged female police officer. In the years after, women served mostly as radio dispatchers, matrons, and social workers for juveniles and female prison inmates. Not until 1968 did Indianapolis become the first force in the country to assign a woman to full-time field patrol. Since then, the numbers of women in policing have raised steadily, thanks largely to changes in federal antidiscrimination laws. Resistance toward women cops stems in part from the fact that they are still relative newcomers t
