An insult to the criminal justice system

Blogs Editor
More in this blog

The recent public debate surrounding the release of convicted Palestinian murderers has primarily focused on whether there were diplomatic alternatives available to the government, as well as on the understandable and justified opposition of the bereaved families to the release. The fact that the debate has been reduced primarily to the question of releasing convicted murderers or criminals with blood on their hands as if the release of prisoners who merely attempted murder, caused injury, or simply participated in smuggling weapons used for terrorism is acceptable and is not subject to debate is indicative of the imbalance facing Israel regarding the tension between law enforcement and other interests that the State sees as vital.

It is important to add to the discussion a significant consideration that practically goes without saying, yet has been pushed aside for lack of a lobby to support it: the irreparable damage that such releases, whether they are conducted as part of prisoner release deals or as part of diplomatic negotiations, do to the rule of law in general and to the goals of the criminal justice system in particular.

Criminal justice is not just about retribution or revenge for the victims and their families. A very important purpose of criminal law is deterrence both personal deterrence (deterring the defendant from repeating his actions) and also and most importantly deterring others; that is, making the action seem unprofitable in the eyes of potential future criminals. Routinely making deals in which criminals convicted of serious crimes are released severely affects the efficacy of deterrence.

When these releases become routine, it becomes impossible to ignore the fact that people contemplating terrorist attacks against Israel will think it is a real possibility that they will not serve their sentence; rather, they will return to their families early as glorified heroes. As a result, despite the fact that carrying out an offense within the framework of a terrorist organization is supposed to be an aggravating circumstance for sentencing, in reality, carrying out an attack as part of a terrorist organization ultimately is a mitigating circumstance.

Moreover, criminal law carries an important message of denunciation and condemnation of the act that was done, and expresses an educational message of respect for the values that are meant to be protected by law (in this case: the sanctity of life). The act of releasing terrorists who were convicted of murder damages these messages. It also allows for the glorification of released prisoners on a special collective Release Day, as opposed to having each prisoner released upon completion of his or her individual sentence. Early releases also harm the educational message of respect for the value of life, and even broadcast a message of contempt for that value.

On the more general level of the rule of law, the release of murderers creates a sense of injustice and disregard for criminal proceedings and for the legal system as a whole. In this situation, when murderers are released early and are not serving their sentences, and when there is a legitimate feeling that injustices that were predictable from the outset are being committed systematically, do not be surprised if there is an increase in lynching at the site of terror attacks even if there is no justification whatsoever for such behavior by citizens who wish to take justice into their own hands because they have lost their faith in the justice system.

In addition, every time there is a deal of this nature, it renews the debate about the death penalty. This article is too short to address how inhumane and harmful this punishment which has been abolished in all democratic countries except for the United States is, in all respects. Anyone who opposes the death penalty must remember that releasing murderers strengthens and incentivizes those who advocate for the death penalty in Israel. This is a danger that is not to be ignored.

Particularly those who, like me, believe that criminal law with its protections such as due process, the rules of evidence, and punishment that is both appropriate and not disproportionate (which would exclude the death penalty) should continue to be applied even to crimes of terrorism, should wholeheartedly oppose the inherent erosion of the goals and legitimacy of the criminal process that is caused by prisoner releases.

The Patrol Officer s Perspective on Rewards and Punishments

Dolan Consulting Group – Research Brief

Decades of extensive research in psychology has revealed that people respond to rewards and punishments in the workplace.1Law enforcement officers are no exception. We are generally motivated to engage in, or refrain from, specific behaviors because of the rewards and punishments associated with those behaviors.

Private industry often links pay and other rewards to specific employee performance goals. High performance often results in pay raises, swift promotions and bonuses. Failing to live up to the performance standards in the private sector often means that a potential year-end pay bonus is denied or that an under-performing employee will be included in the company s next round of reduction-in-force layoffs.

In the public sector, however, we usually do not think of using employee rewards. This is, at least in part, due to the nature of civil service rules that make using formal rewards difficult. Public sector employers generally cannot offer pay bonuses or an unscheduled promotion to reward excellent work.

Report: Middle School Suicide Rates More Than Doubled Since 2007

The annual rate skyrocketed from 0.9 suicides per 100,000 middle schoolers in 2007 to 2.1 suicides per 100,000 middle schoolers in 2014.

Suicide rates have drastically increased for all age groups under 75.

Recent statistics have shown a disturbing rise in suicide among middle school students in America.

From 2007 to 2014, suicide rates have doubled among children ages 10 to 14, according to data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The annual rate skyrocketed from 0.9 suicides per 100,000 middle schoolers in 2007 to 2.1 suicides per 100,000 middle schoolers in 2014.

Suicides have now surpassed the death rate from car crashes in that age group for the first time, according to NorthJersey.com .

Educational Leadership and School Improvement

This route provides a broad-based view of educational leadership and school improvement, both through the explicit and focused study of specific concepts and issues, and through their application in the conduct of individual research projects. The teaching team draw on their research to illustrate ideas, and occasionally welcome visiting academics to enrich the route still further. Students are encouraged to share their experiences and perceptions, and to learn from each other while relating knowledge, principles and insights to their own contexts. Participants come with varied backgrounds, from the UK and overseas and as such the course has an international perspective.

We aim to offer participants the opportunity to develop:

  • an advanced knowledge and understanding of educational leadership and school improvement, including the ‘Leadership for Learning’ framework;
  • a familiarity with a range of frameworks for understanding pupil, professional and organisational learning;
  • a set of skills for analysing educational leadership and school improvement issues and practices;
  • the ability to understand and contribute to the leadership of educational initiatives and contribute to informed development of policy and practice in educational contexts.

What does this course offer?

The opportunities for learning on the ELSI route are designed to reflect our conceptions of learning and leadership and the principles and values of ‘Leadership for Learning’. This means that whilst the Faculty lecturers take responsibility for the organisation of the route and for supporting you, there is an expectation that you take responsibility for your own learning, and both contribute to and learn from other members of the group. Students come from different backgrounds and with a variety of experiences, which adds a real richness to the group: we aim to draw upon your own knowledge and experiences and encourage you to share these sensitively with others. As a community of learners we are interdependent.

How is the course organised?

Students on the MPhil course complete the course in one year and have teaching sessions throughout the week. Students on the MEd course complete the course part time over two years and have one teaching session per week on a Wednesday afternoon into early evening.

During sessions you will experience a variety of face-to-face activities offering opportunities for learning. For example, there may be a lecture to the whole group, discussions, small group activities, and student presentations. You will also be expected to engage in self-directed work and study, sometimes with other students in small groups, and sometimes on your own. You will be encouraged to develop critical friendship groups with fellow students, and to both give and gain support through these groups. These will complement your one-to-one supervisions with a lecturer that focus upon your assessed assignments.

The content is covered through eight interrelated themes (described below). In 2016-17, full time students will follow all 8 themes. Part time students will study themes 5-8 in 2016-17, and those continuing to their second year in 2017-18 will study themes 1-4.

Module 1: Leadership for Learning
Module 2: Policy, Structures and Change
Module 3: School Effectiveness and School Improvement
Module 4: Issues and Dilemmas
Module 5: Perspectives on Leadership
Module 6: Perspectives on Learning
Module 7: Schools, Cultures and Communities
Module 8: Educational Evaluation

Research Method Strand

All of our Masters degrees are designated research degrees in education. This means that a key part of the degree involves developing a good understanding of a wide range of empirical and non-empirical research methods (including techniques for collecting and analysing qualitative and quantitative data) and then applying these research methods to practical issues in education. Students develop an understanding of different research strategies, foster skills in appraising and synthesising published research studies and acquire the understanding and skills necessary for designing, conducting, analysing, interpreting and reporting a small-scale research study. Discussion of educational research methodology is integral to the ELSI sessions, and the second essay and thesis explicitly assess knowledge and understanding of research methods.

All students on the ELSI route also attend a generic research methods strand, accounting for approximately one-third of the whole programme. Methods sessions are essential for a research-based Masters degree and constitute about one-third of the whole programme. The research methods strand covers a broad range of social science research methods and is essential for Masters level understanding and critical engagement with the research literature. It offers opportunities and encouragement to apply the knowledge gained to your thematic area, and vice versa, as well as introducing research methods beyond those commonly used in ELSI.

Who are the course team?

The course is staffed by a team of established faculty members who provide teaching and supervision. Other colleagues also contribute one-off lectures:

15 Best Online Colleges for Criminal Justice in 2017

The exciting worlds of law enforcement, homeland security, crime scene investigation, and corrections are just a degree away. With a criminal justice degree at the associate, bachelor’s, master’s, or doctoral level, the door is open to a number of diverse fields based in law enforcement. These degrees are consistently in high demand, as governments continue to invest in national and local security. Employment of police and detectives, for instance, is expected to grow 10% over the 2008-2018 decade due to population growth, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics. Because of the technical and intellectual skill required of the work, earning a degree from an accredited college or university can help those seeking to enter the industry qualify for the best criminal justice careers.

When entering a criminal justice program, course work can include communications, management, criminology, and basic law, depending on the level of degree and focus. An associate degree in criminal justice will offer basic courses in policing, security, and juvenile justice, while a bachelor’s degree in homeland security will offer courses in emergency planning and communications. A master’s degree could lead to further specialization in such fields as forensic science, law enforcement, criminology, corrections, and homeland security.

Not all careers in the criminal justice field require advanced education. A high school diploma may be the minimum requirement for many police and security careers. However, most jobs at the federal or state level require at least a bachelor’s degree. Work as a probation officer or correctional treatment specialist, for instance, usually requires a bachelor’s degree in criminal justice, social work, or psychology, according to the BLS. Those interested in private investigation would also benefit from a degree in criminal justice. A master’s degree in criminal justice could lead to advancement opportunities and higher pay in the field.
