Compare and contrast the prevalence of organized crime in two (2) of the following global regions: North America, Africa, Europe, Latin America, and Asia. Determine each global region’s response to organized crime, and examine the correlation between this response and the prevalence of organized crime in the region.

Organized crime is still in North America. Most recently, a Baltimore police detective was shot in the head at close range with his own gun day before he was set to testify in grand jury in an ongoing police corruption and drug shakedowns. It seems crazy to think he is killed with his own gun only a day before standing trial that would have brought down so many other people. The global regions response to organized crime is that it is no longer there and doesn’t happen. Which seems to not be the case. It is not as big as it used to be but it is still out there. Individuals think of the Mobsters of many years ago when they think of organized crime, but even though those types of organized crime have gone down it does not mean it is completely gone.

 Speculate on at least two (2) reasons why society’s concern about Cybercrime has lagged behind other types of organized crime despite society’s current reliance on computers and technology. Justify your response.

The misuse of computers and the internet to carry out criminal activity is a cybercrime. Cybercrime can involve lottery scams, bank accounts, ID theft, and extortion. Most cybercrimes involve obtaining some sort of profit with money or gaining something. There is a lot that is involved with cybercrime, which makes them complex to locate and shut down. These types of crimes do not directly physically harm another human or thing. Most fraud committed in companies are committed from the inside.  The ICCC, Internet Crime Complaint Center, receives more than 300,000 complaints in a yearn with a dollar loss of nearly $500 million. That is a lot of complaints for one center to process though and see what are legitimate complaints and which ones are not. Cybercrime is always evolving to something different. As soon as they figure out one virus and how to stop that, another comes in. The hatchers that are involved with these cybercrimes seem to be one step ahead of the government who tries to shut them down.

         In the Furman vs. Georgia case, I agree with the creation of a three (3) tier panel assess whether the state court has properly applied the sanction to the proceeding because even though I feel that Furman was guilty of Capital Murder and my reasoning is this he knowingly entered a residence with a gun with all intentions of robbing the place and while Furman was committing the robbery the home owner was murdered. So by having this three (3) tier panel will either confirm that the state court has properly applied the sanction to the proceeding or not and not what I or any other person feels should happen.

         Every juvenile offender has different circumstances and what works for one as a punishment  may not work for another. I feel that alternative sentencing works for some juveniles and turns their life around and others no matter what you do will not. By sending youths to prison you teach some prison life and that becomes the only life they know and they tend to re-offend to return to the life they are comfortable with. So for some youthful offenders it may delay them from serving time , others it will help.
