The punishment response by Graeme R Newman( Book )

23 editions published between 1978 and 2017 in English and held by 845 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Punishment occupies a central place in our lives and attitudes. We suffer a profound ambivalence about its moral consequences. Persons who have been punished or are liable to be punished have long objected to the legitimacy of punishment. We are all objects of punishment, yet we are also its users. Our ambivalence is so profound that not only do we punish others, but we punish ourselves as well. We view those who submit too willingly to punishment as obedient verging on the groveling coward, and we view those who resist punishment as disobedient, rebels. In The Punishment Response Graeme Newman describes the uses of punishment and how these uses change over time.Some argue that punishment promotes discrimination and divisiveness in society. Others claim that it is through punishment that order and legitimacy are upheld. It is important that punishment is understood as neither one nor the other; it is both. This point, simple though it seems, has never really been addressed. This is why Newman claims we wax and wane in our uses of punishment; why punishing institutions are clogged by bureaucracy; why the death penalty comes and goes like the tide.Graeme Newman emphasizes that punishment is a cultural process and also a mechanism of particular institutions, of which criminal law is but one. Because academic discussions of punishment have been confined to legalistic preoccupations, much of the policy and justification of punishment have been based on discussions of extreme cases. The use of punishment in the sphere of crime is an extreme unto itself, since crime is a minor aspect of daily life. The uses of punishment, and the moral justifications for punishment within the family and school have rarely been considered, certainly not to the exhaustive extent that criminal law has been in this outstanding work."--Provided by publisher
Comparative deviance : perception and law in six cultures by Graeme R Newman( Book )

24 editions published between 1976 and 2017 in English and Undetermined and held by 753 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

""Comparative Deviance" represents a systematic attempt to survey public perceptions of deviant behavior cross-culturally: in India, Indonesia, Iran, Italy, Yugoslavia and the United States. There is extensive diversity in both law and perception concerning such deviances as taking drugs, homosexuality, and abortion, yet there is evidence for a basically invariant structure in perception of deviance across all cultures. Within the countries studied in this volume, Geraeme Newman discovers that the strength of religious belief and urban rural background accounted for major differences in the perception of deviance - when differences were identified. Contrary to popular academic opinion in the United States, Newman finds that those countries with the most liberal laws on deviance (i.e., the least punitive sanctions) are also those highly economically developed and least totalitarian (United States and Italy). But when public opinion is considered, the public favors harsher punishments than the law provides. In contrast, in the developing countries of India, Iran and Indonesia, where penal sanctions are more severe, public opinion is much more liberal. The crucial question is the role criminal law plays in the process of modernization: whether law is a stable cultural influence, round which public opinion wavers in a startling fashion, depending on the stage of modernization. These findings challenge many assumptions of conflict theory in sociology, of cultural relativism in anthropology, and of ethical relativism in moral philosophy. All findings are examined in relation to research on modernization, social development, and the evolution of law. These fundamental issues are thus important to many different disciplines across the board."--Provided by publisher

Policing terrorism : an executive's guide by Graeme R Newman( Book )

6 editions published between 2008 and 2010 in English and held by 373 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Description from Brief 01: It has been said that 9/11 changed everything. This is certainly true for local police agencies and other chiefs. It is increasingly clear that federal agencies, such as the FBI and the US Secret Service, can no longer work alone in protecting the United States from further attack. Rather, they must work in partnership with other public and private agencies, and most important, with local police. Local police can identify potential terrorists living or operating in their jurisdictions, they can help protect vulnerable targets, and they can coordinate the first response to terror attacks. These are heavy new responsibilities that significantly expand the workload of already busy departments. Many departments welcome these new responsibilities, but they cannot be shrugged off because elected officials and the public will increasingly expect their police to be prepared

Outsmarting the terrorists by R. V. G Clarke( Book )

8 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 334 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Given that the war on terror is currently being fought the way crime typically is-after the fact-this country cannot protect its citizens from future terrorist events solely in this way. Instead, measures must be taken to actually stop terrorists before they can attack. Here, the authors argue that government anti-terrorism policy must pay much more attention to reducing opportunities for terrorist attacks by protecting vulnerable targets, controlling the tools and weapons used by terrorists, and by removing the conditions of everyday life that make these attacks possible. While some of this work is done on an ad hoc basis, there are no recognized methods to guide the work, there is limited experience on which to draw, and the government has no trained professionals to oversee the work. In this book, the authors address these deficiencies, and lay out a systematic approach for reducing opportunities for terrorism. The current "take-them-out mindset" may be the main reason why reducing opportunities for terrorism has been so neglected by governments, but another important reason is that the task seems so overwhelmingly difficult. How can we possibly protect every vulnerable target or person? How can we control all the everyday tools that terrorists must use in carrying out their attacks? How can we control their weapons when we cannot even keep guns out the hands of ordinary criminals? In this book, the authors show that these tasks are indeed manageable. They take readers through the methods for preventing terrorism and the policies that will assist in this important work. They show that in order to protect the country from terrorists, security forces must do what the terrorists do: identify vulnerable targets, analyze their specific weaknesses, consider the tools and weapons needed to attack, and assess access to the targets. Once these steps are taken, security agencies can then provide appropriate protection, limit accessibility, anticipate the forces needed to combat a potential attack, and plan carefully for an attack if it does occur. By "outsmarting the terrorists" security forces undertake the same analysis of vulnerabilities and opportunities that terrorists themselves undertake in planning their operations, and can more effectively defeat them before they strike. This books shows how this approach works and can succeed

Superhighway robbery : preventing e-commerce crime by Graeme R Newman( Book )

12 editions published between 2003 and 2013 in English and held by 215 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book analyzes the expanding crime opportunities created by the Internet and e-commerce, and it explains how concepts of crime prevention developed in other contexts can be effectively applied in this new environment. The authors note that the Internet and associated e-commerce constitute a lawless "wild frontier" where users of the Internet can anonymously exploit and victimize other users without a high risk of being detected, arrested, prosecuted, and punished. For acquisitive criminals who seek to gain money by stealing it from others, e-commerce through the Internet enables them to "hack" their way into bank records and transfer funds for their own enrichment. Computer programs that are readily available for download on the Web can be used to scan the Web for individual computers that are vulnerable to attack. By using the Internet addresses of other users or using another person's or organization's computers or computing environment, criminals can hide their trails and escape detection. After identifying the multiple opportunities for crime in the world of e-commerce, the book describes specific steps that can be taken to prevent e-commerce crime at particular points of vulnerability. The authors explain how two aspects of situational crime prevention can prevent Internet crime. This involves both a targeting of individual vulnerabilities and a broad approach that requires partnerships in producing changes and modifications that can reduce or eliminate criminal opportunities. The authors apply the 16 techniques of situational crime prevention to the points of vulnerability of the e-commerce system. The points of vulnerability are identified and preventive measures are proposed. In discussing the broad approach of institutionalized and systemic efforts to police e-commerce, the book focuses on ways to increase the risks of detection and sanctions for crime without undue intrusions on the freedom and privacy of legitimate Internet and e-commerce users

Check and card fraud by Graeme R Newman( Book )

5 editions published between 2003 and 2004 in English and held by 24 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This document describes the problem of check and card fraud, and reviews factors that increase the risks of it. While there are some obvious differences between check and card fraud, the limitations and opportunities for fraud and its prevention and control by local police are similar enough to warrant addressing them together. Some cards, such as debit cards, are used and processed in a similar way to checks, and electronic checks are processed in a similar way to cards, so that traditional distinction between cards and checks is eroding. Apart from the obvious financial loss caused by check and card fraud, it is a serious crime that affects multiple victims and significantly contributes to other types of crime. Check and card fraud is an ideal entry-level crime from which people may graduate to more serious offenses. Other crimes that feed off check and card fraud or facilitate its commission are drug trafficking, identity theft, mail fraud, pickpocketing, fencing, extortion, and organized crime. The biggest problem for police is that people rarely report check and card fraud to them. Only one in four incidents of check and card fraud are reported to the police. Factors contributing to check and card fraud are security flaws in design and production, difficulty in verifying a check or card user₂s identity, and activities of international organized crime groups. Analyzing the local problem of check and card fraud carefully will help police design a more effective response strategy later on. It is important to ask the right questions concerning the incident, offender, victim, and location/time during the investigation. Measurement allows police to determine to what degree their efforts have succeeded, and suggests how they might modify responses if they are not producing the intended results. Considerations for an effective response strategy include working with businesses in raising responsibility awareness, increasing reporting of fraud, training checkout staff, and reducing card application fraud. Working with the community can help educate cardholders and publicize the costs of fraud. Law enforcement agencies can monitor fencing outlets, monitor chat rooms, and target high-risk merchants
Identity theft by Graeme R Newman( Book )

4 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 17 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This guide addresses identity theft related crimes committed in the United States. The guide is divided into four main sections: the problem of identify theft; factors contributing to identity theft; understanding the individual agency₂s problem; and responses to the problem of identity theft. It begins by describing the problem and reviewing factors that increase the risks of it happening, identifies a series of questions to assist in analyzing a local problem, and reviews responses to the problem and what is known from evaluative research and police practice. Understanding the factors contributing to the problem of identity theft assists in framing local analysis questions, determine good effectiveness measures, recognize key intervention points, and select appropriate responses. It is important then to combine the basic facts with a more specific understanding of the agency problem by asking the right questions and establishing a baseline for measuring effectiveness and thereby designing a more effective response strategy. Lastly, response strategies are presented providing a foundation of ideas for addressing the particular problem of identity theft. However, responses should be tailored to local circumstances. Also, identifying others in the community who share responsibility for the problem of identity theft--who can assist law enforcement in better responding to the problem. In the case of identity theft, there are clear implications for businesses, other government agencies, and consumer advocacy groups
