Discussion 2


It has been said that the police are viewed as both a curse and an evil for free society. For this week's discussion, discuss why the police represent both an aberration and a necessity to a democratic society. Also, after watching our week's video assignment, include in your discussion what we have learned from historical experiences with police.

Discussion 3


Since this week's reading assignment focuses on community policing and investigations, consider this: The Department of Homeland Security was formed, in part, to make federal law enforcement more efficient. With a less fragmented system, theoretically, the right hand knows better what the left hand is doing. If this is the case, then why not consolidate local, county and state police? In other words, in the hypothetical, why not have one police department for each state and the cities and counties would be served by precincts of that department? Discuss the pros and cons of such a system.
