Original intent : the battle for America( Visual )

2 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 267 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Original Intent is the judicial philosophy promoted by President George W. Bush and Supreme Court Justices Antonin Scalia and Clarence Thomas. Originalists believe the U.S. Constitution should be interpreted in the way the Founding Fathers understood it in 1789 -- an era when only white men were allowed to vote and slavery was legal. Others believe the Constitution was crafted in broad, open-ended language and that its meaning evolves over time. Original Intent: The Battle for America argues that the far right is using originalism as a cover to advance a radically conservative political agenda. With the appointments of Justices Roberts and Alito, the balance of the Supreme Court shifted dramatically to the right. Many laws that are considered fundamental rights can be overturned, particularly laws that protect civil rights, voting rights, affirmative action, reproductive rights, privacy, and sexual freedom. The film contains interviews with: Robert Bork, Supreme Court nominee; Prof. Erwin Chemerinsky, Dean, UC Irvine Law School; Prof. Alan Dershowitz, Harvard Law School; Edwin Meese, Attorney General, Reagan Administration; Senator Alan Simpson (R-WY); Prof. Nadine Strassen, NY Law School and President, ACLU; and Nina Totenberg, Legal Affairs Correspondent, National Public Radio.

Community policing and the police officer by Edwin Meese( Book )

3 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 197 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The new philosophy of police work has been called "community policing," a term that includes problem-solving techniques, strategic use of resources, and increasingly sophisticated investigative capabilities. The success of new policing strategies depends on the ability to recruit, develop, and field a group of officers who understand their roles in peacekeeping, community service, and crime fighting. More fundamental than the necessary change in skills is the change in the basic position of the police officer. The military system has been called into question as a proper model for the new vision of police professionalism. One way to improve the quality and professionalism is to change the titles and rank structure. The management structure needs to be changed, since community policing envisions the empowerment of officers. Police departments must select innovative, self-disciplined, and self-motivated individuals. A college education appears to be necessary or at least desirable. Training in the concepts of community policing must be reflected throughout recruiting and the training program. Changing the supervisory style to reflect the values and techniques of community policing is of critical importance. Other important parts of the community policing officer's success and personal satisfaction are field support, relationships within the police department, and effective systems for monitoring, evaluating, and, when necessary, disciplining police conduct.
