Another right is freedom from arbitrary punishments and cruel punishments. According to the Eighth Amendment, every inmate has the right to be free from inhuman treatment that can be considered cruel punishment. However, the Eighth Amendment has not clearly indicated which actions are brutal, but the Supreme court states that such punishments include beheading, burning alive, and disemboweling, among others. According to Mckee (2019), inmates should also have the right to freedom from sexual harassment. That applies to sexual crimes from either fellow inmates or prison personnel.

How might these changes in policing affect how the public views the police and affect how the police view the public?

marginalized and disadvantaged groups will have no access to safety, increasing the crime rates within the community (Cole and Gertz, 2012). It is a significant challenge as there would be underfunding policing for the poor populations while the more responsive policing for the affluent communities. It creates a considerable inequality to access safety, impacting the wellbeing of a community and contributing to more crime, in the case of immigration, either legal or illegal immigration. Until recently, most police agencies in the United States believed that executing immigration laws was a federal rather than a municipal job. The police wanted immigrants to feel free to approach the police if victims of crime, especially when employers exploited them. Even persons who were in the nation unlawfully deserved to be protected by the law, according to police officials. However, in response to rising anti-illegal immigration sentiments, police forces have begun to enforce immigration laws (Reiss, 1973). As expected, this has alienated these communities when connecting with immigrants is more important as they form a significant part of the United States population and society.

A vehicle is traveling 50mph on a roadway with a posted speed limit of 35mph. The police officer observes the vehicle and utilizing his radar unit (operating under the Doppler principal), confirms that vehicle is indeed driving 15 miles over the posted speed limit.

The police officer activates his overhead lights and siren and effects a motor vehicle stop of the violator’s vehicle. Upon approaching the vehicle, he notices a white male operating the vehicle with a Hispanic male passenger. Upon speaking with the driver, the police officer detects an odor of marijuana emanating from the vehicle.

In the United States, citizen’s right to privacy and non-interference by members of law enforcement is entrenched in the Constitution (Capers & Burke, 2014). The same law provides a framework upon which members of the police force can execute search and seizures in properties owned by private citizens and corporations. There is a procedure that has to get followed if the materials they seize are to form part of the evidence presented before a court of law. Failure to do this renders the material useless as the method that led to their acquisition was questionable. The stakeholders in the criminal justice system have to ensure that all procedures get followed to ensure Justice gets attained.(2507 words)
