Militias

Militias

Militias

In line with Joshua D. Freilich

about Militias in the Encyclopedia of Law Enforcement:

Militias are groups that deploy or encourage paramilitary rituals and use informal social networks, charismatic leaders, and various forms of consciousness raising to mobilize individuals on behalf of an ideology that expresses antipathy toward the federal government, multinational corporations and organizations (such as the United Nations), and international treaties (such as the North American (United States) Free Trade Agreement). Militias also seek to protect fundamental American (United States) rights such as individual liberty and gun rights. Because there is no national militia organization, not all militia groups are the same. For example, while some engage in military training, others, such as the Militia of Montana, only encourage others to train militarily since Montana laws prohibit paramilitary training activity. The militia movement arose in the early 1990s as a reaction to federal legislation that limited gun rights and to perceived federal law enforcement misconduct. Initially, most of the American (United States) public was unaware of these groups.

Misdemeanors

Misdemeanors

Misdemeanors

In line with Camille Gibson

about Misdemeanors in the Encyclopedia of Law Enforcement:

Historically, under English common law, misdemeanors referred to all offenses except treason and felonies. Felonies were offenses requiring some forfeiture of a person's life and/or property. However, unlike felonies and treason, misdemeanor offenses could be further classified as either mala in se (wrong in themselves) or mala prohibita (wrong according to statute, but not wrong in themselves). Today, in the United States of America, misdemeanors remain less serious offenses than felonies, which usually require more than a year of incarceration in a prison or death, and more serious offenses than infractions, otherwise called “violations,” which are punishable by a small fine and carry no right to a trial or the benefit of counsel. The differences among all three are largely a matter of the sanctions involved.

Missing Persons Investigations

In line with Deborah L. Sawers

about Missing Persons in the Encyclopedia of Law Enforcement:

Historically, state criminal law (there is more information about criminal law in the American Legal Encyclopedia here) has prohibited non-familial abduction and kidnapping, and the public has expected swift and aggressive investigation into such cases. The kidnapping and murder of the son of Charles A. Lindbergh in 1932 led to a federal statute, the Federal Kidnapping Act, which allowed United States Department of Justice intervention and prescribed severe penalties for transporting the victims of kidnapping across state or national boundaries. According to the FBI, as of 2003, there were 97,297 active missing persons cases in the United States of America; the majority, 85%-90%, of these missing persons are juveniles. In roughly 725,000 cases, the disappearance of a child or adult was serious enough that it was reported to the police, the police took a report, and entered the report into the FBI's National Crime Information Center (NCIC).
