ABSTRACT

As of today, we have reached the era of modernization. New technology have been created, one of this discovery is the computer. The technology has changed the different phase of our lives. Nowadays, with the help of computer, the use of robots and AI (Artificial Intelligence) inclined the field of industry and causes economy and education more spare time. Computer promotes our way of living in upgrade, an ease to almost everything. In recent years, the increased flexibility and user-friendliness of computer databases make these systems a crucial business component. In fact, some universities are now using Computer Database Management System for a faster and safer manifestation of data. However, the Office of Community Improvement Division (CID) with their City College Scholarship Program (CCSP) of City Hall Cagayan de Oro City encounters a problem of maintaining and recovering scholar profiles using the manual data processing. Manual processing is known for its accurate results but it is only good when the number of data to be process is less. In updating of scholar records, it takes time in retrieving their records. For safekeeping and fast data processing, development of a Computerized Profiling System should be in hand. This study is designed to achieve effectively in collecting and retrieving of scholar records. The Office of the Community Improvement Division (CID) has not yet established a Computerized Profiling System. Thus the researchers propose a development of a database for scholar profile for the benefit of the scholars and office of the Community Improvement Division (CID), this programmed database is of great help to the mechanism and can improve the function of the office to be more organized in keeping file(s).

Objectives of the Study

This study aimed on the design and development of a computerized profiling system that will surely…...

Racial Profiling

...Racial profiling has been around for many years, with laws such as the "Black Codes", which were created during the reconstruction in the South. These laws imposed severe restrictions on freed slaves such as prohibiting their right to vote, forbidding them to sit on juries, limiting their right to testify against white men, carrying weapons in public places and working in certain occupations; and the “Jim Crow” laws, which were laws that discriminated against African Americans with concern to attendance in public schools and the use of facilities such as restaurants, theaters, hotels, cinemas and public baths. Trains and buses were also segregated and in many states marriage between whites and African American people. According to Heather Mac Donald, the term "Racial profiling" has two meanings, hard and soft profiling. “Hard” profiling uses race as the only factor in assessing criminal suspiciousness: an officer sees a black person and, without more to go on, pulls him over for a pat-down on the chance that he may be carrying drugs or weapons. "Soft" racial profiling is using race as one factor among others in gauging criminal suspiciousness: the highway police, for example, have intelligence that Jamaican drug posses with a fondness for Nissan Pathfinders are transporting marijuana along the northeast corridor. A New Jersey trooper sees a black motorist speeding in a Pathfinder and pulls him over in the hope of finding drugs (Mac Donald). Racial Profiling really...

Racial Profiling 
Date appears here Racial Profiling History is replete with examples of people that have differentiated between themselves and others that are different in any which way. This abhorrent discrimination between two human beings has not become a relic of the past; rather it still persists in our modern society in some form or the other. The United States of America is no stranger to incidents where these objectionable incidents are recorded widely, and it is not just relegated to poor neighborhoods and other similarly shady areas. Rather, it has become a permanent feature in the corporate world, Government and other similar places where these sorts of differentiations would be least expected. One community that has always been constantly repressed is the African American community. Their forefathers were brought to America’s shores as slaves, in times when slavery was still tolerated. To this day, many people in America still consider them as alien to their land. This of course leads to a host of problems across America that shows up when African Americans across the country are questioned about their fortunes. This sort of discrimination is often encouraged by many people that rather disturbingly have a lot of authority and power in making and implementing laws. Their argument is that discriminating and acting against the Black community is a viable way of making sure that Crime is kept in check. ...

Racial Profiling

...Racial Profiling Still Active Today Research Methodology in Public Safety Racial Profiling “It is said that Milwaukee Police Departments are said to be “racial profiling” due to their Police Chief implementing a “traffic stop initiative” only in African American Communities. The Police Chief tried to say it that it wasn’t “racial profiling” but rather “targeting the high crime areas of Milwaukee (White, 2010).” Racial profiling occurs when police routinely use races as a factor that causes an officer to react with suspicion to take action. Though the Police Chief feels he is doing the right thing by supposedly protecting “black victims,” the community feels that the police department is “racially profiling.” Racial profiling in my opinions an ineffective strategy. It says that you don’t want to learn about your community person’s behavior and you’re just ready to judge the person by the color of the skin. It cannot be disputed that the perception of racial profiling by police department still exist within minority communities and societies at large. This is a recurrent topic of debate and divisive issue in many communities. This was clearly seen and addressed when I saw the problem first hand when I worked in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Questions: Some questions to be asked are: 1. Should police do more to control excessive force? 2. ......

...There are many pros and cons to Racial Profiling, and the law enforcement uses them in so many ways. Racial profiling is when people such as the Law Enforcement approach many people of the same races being accused of the same things that are most common in that race. Racial profiling has been around for a long time and it is very common. The law enforcement uses a lot racial profiling towards all the races. Policemen and Policewoman can easily pull over people because of their race. Mexicans are usually pulled over because they can be accused of being an illegal immigrant, or even drug dealing/using marijuana. African Americans are most commonly pulled over because they can be accused of drug dealing, being a thief or even being accused of doing cocaine. Caucasian people are usually pulled over to being accused of meth, unlawful possessions of weapons, or controlled substances. I think that in order to get the criminals off the streets it is okay to use racial profiling if they are using it in the right way. I think that if I were to see a truck or car with big rims and someone that gets out of the car is all tattooed up and is taking a smoke, I honestly would accuse them of being in the wrong and would be okay if a cop were to come and search them to see what they are getting themselves into. If a person is being suspicious then the law enforcement should be able to have a search warrant on them. Not only is it a good idea for them to stop the criminals from doing crime,......

...Levin Introduction This proposal was selected to analyze profiling psychologically, geographically, and racially. Profiling has its benefits and problem just like any other perceptional judgment. Society tends to be inclined to profiling due to cognitive learning, but "profiling was originally intended to help drug couriers attempting to enter the country." (Schmalleger, 2004) U.S Customs Service and the Drug Enforcement Administration developed personal indicators that perceived an increased likelihood of a violation of law. Then in the late 1900's racial profiling received national recognition. Racial profiling referred to "Driving While Black." (Schmalleger, 2004) Literature review Advantages and Disadvantages Psychological "We understand today that it is a cruel and ignorance practice to torture men and women whose mental disturbance expresses itself in the form of religious or other eccentricities, but we are still too deep in the darkness to realize that the same true of those whose quirks show themselves in criminality." (Howe, 2012) One form of profiling is the psychological process of criminals. Usually, if investigators think like criminals he or she will caught a law violator. Psychologically profiling suspected criminals is an effective benefit for criminologist; unfortunately, using psychological profiling can't provide solid evidence. During the 1950's psychological profiling was distinctly used as a method in America. Investigator......

...Racial profiling is a problem which is gaining widespread notoriety in the United States. It may be the most important homeland issue we face today. Not only does racial profiling affect civilians, but it actually makes law enforcement ineffective. Most efforts to investigate and eradicate racial profiling have failed due to unclear findings and a lack of accountability on the part of law enforcement. . Racial profiling is one of the most important civil rights issues facing our country today. Not only does racial profiling affect the direct victims, it negatively affects all people of color, in all generations, of all levels of economic standing. The integrity and accountability of law enforcement agencies is lost due to racial profiling. This integrity is lost in the communities that need effective law enforcement the most, making it close to impossible for police officers to do their jobs. Racial profiling can be defined as “any police-initiated action that that relies on the race, ethnicity or national origin rather than behavior of an individual or information that leads the police to a particular individual who has been identified as being, or having been, engaged in criminal activity (Jost)." There are two types of racial profiling, hard and soft. Hard profiling uses race as the only factor in assessing criminal suspiciousness (MacDonald, 132). A good example of hard profiling would be an officer seeing a black person and, without more to go on, pulling him over......

...Policing Author Note Abstract Racial profiling has a long history in the United States. One that has routes in our culture, history, and psyche that have been established over the years by differences in social status, heritage, and demographics. A lot has been learned, evolved, addressed amidst ever changing views and necessitated tolerances. Racial profiling is unjust but in a time of heighten needs for security, law enforcement scrutiny, and improved policing standards and technology it is a misnomer and often quickly used to characterize an agencies or officers action. Riley v. California: Effect on Proactive Policing Racial profiling is a longstanding and deeply troubling national problem despite claims that the United States has entered a “post-racial era.” It occurs every day, in cities and towns across the country, when law enforcement and private security target people of color for humiliating and often frightening detentions, interrogations, and searches without evidence of criminal activity and based on perceived race, ethnicity, national origin, or religion. Racial profiling is patently illegal, violating the U.S. Constitution’s core promises of equal protection under the law to all and freedom from unreasonable searches and seizures. In today’s world we live in a very social media driven manner. The media can sway people’s attitudes towards a certain direction depending on the circumstances. Racial Profiling is a very sensitive topic every......

Racial Profiling

...Racial Profiling is a controversial and illegal discriminatory practice in which individuals are targeted for suspicion of crimes based on their ethinicity,race,or religion rather thn evidence-based suspicious behavior.(racial profiling) Racial Profiling is used to help law enforcement solve crimes. Also it is used to profile different individuals. " In 2013, the ferguson police department made 5,384 stops and 611 searches, 86 percent of the searches and 86 percent of the stops were of black people."(theatlantic) In this case the racial profiling is pursued mainly towards black people. The police should keep some type of report of the stops they make. They can start monitoring the stops by just doing their jobs the right way.Is this right? This is suppose to be America, the land of the free. They really need to stop pulling people over because of the color of their skin. As a law enforcement officer, its clearly just their job. The should look at everyone the same no matter the race of the person. Also truth be told people of all races commit some the same crimes. So who's to say that a specific race should be profiled in such manner. Another type of racial profiling revolves around terroist. One event that happend September 11, 2001. Two planes went into the twin towers located in New York City. Thousands of innocent people were killed. Due to this event a person who is Pakistan or Arabian heritage could be questioned for hours at an airport, before they are allowed......

...Profiling in our Society Today Have you ever felt targeted by police officials and looked at as a criminal? To be accused of a crime but not because you have done something wrong, but because of your ethnicity or religion. To be discriminated against not just by citizens with in our society but the security officials and by the government we as citizens are supposed to confide in and feel protected by. If you can relate to this question, then from one aspect you understand the emotional feeling tied to being profiled. In the article “Ethnic and Religious Profiling Violates Civil Liberties” the author Lee’s purpose is to provide valid arguments of how the events of 911 have fueled the increased acceptance of ethnic and religious profiling against Arab and Muslim immigrants. The author strongly articulates her point and uses several sources as arguments, but her use of circular reasoning fails to persuade her reader. The authors evidence and reasoning is much stronger when pervasive pattern is summarized, well informed evidence bringing to light the issues we face towards profiling is not going away. Reading Lee’s essay there was flow that was evident from the introduction and throughout the body to the conclusion because the author keeps to the same idea in the introduction as in the conclusion that immigrants faced injustice and were profiled for terrorism because they were Arab or Muslim. The author executed clear topic sentences that goes hand in hand with the overall......

...Justin Nunez Emily Archer SOC 320 5 March 2016 Racial Profiling How many articles and stories have we read in the newspaper and in the news? The shooting at Ferguson, the strangling in Staten Island, and Gray in Baltimore were all deaths that occurred in a couple of years. Each one of the stories were considered discriminatory since each one of the victims was black males attacked by law enforcers. Racial profiling is an illegal practice and an extremely controversial where individuals are targeted of suspicious behaviors based on their race, religion or ethnicity. People of color in the United States experience controversial confrontation with law enforcers constantly. There will be discussions on multiple confrontations with law enforcers and the possibility of how each can be considered discrimination. Some racism against young African American needs to be addressed and law enforcers need to stop targeting minorities. As mentioned above, racial profiling refers to discriminatory practice by law enforcers, or others authorities of the law, target specific individuals due to their race, ethnicity or religion (American Civil Liberties Union). Some of the many recent targets include Muslims, who have been labeled as terrorists, African Americans as gang members and with Donald Trump’s recent dramas, Latin Americans are labeled as immigrants. All these labels mentioned above are based on either race or ethnicity which have no value or importance. Before discussing some......

Warren Florida State University Donald Tomaskovic-Devey University Massachusetts, Amherst Research Summary Scholarly research has documented repeatedly that minority citizens are disproportionately stopped, searched, and arrested relative to their baseline populations. In recent years, policymakers have brought increased attention to this issue as law-enforcement agencies across the United States have faced allegations of racial profiling. In the 1990s, the politics generated by accounts of racially biased policing placed heightened pressure on law-enforcement agencies. However, to date, few studies have explored whether the increased social and political scrutiny placed on police organizations influenced or changed their general pattern of enforcement among black and white citizens. Using data in the search and citation file from the North Carolina Highway Traffic Study, this research specifically examined whether the politics generated by the media coverage of racial profiling and racial profiling legislation in North Carolina influenced the search practices of officers of the North Carolina State Highway Patrol’s drug interdiction team. The findings suggest that media accounts and the passage of new legislation were particularly powerful influences, which thereby......

...officer is white. You have probably just experienced racial profiling. Racial profiling is a problem which is gaining widespread notoriety in the United States. It may be the most important homeland issue we face today. Racial profiling is a clear violation of the civil rights of United States citizens. Not only does racial profiling affect civilians, but it actually makes law enforcement ineffective. Most efforts to investigate and eradicate racial profiling have failed due to unclear findings and a lack of accountability on the part of law enforcement. New measures must be taken in conjunction with current measures to curb racial profiling. A stringent federal program to monitor and survey our nation’s police officers is needed. The public also needs to become more involved in efforts to stop racial profiling. Until these measures are taken, racial profiling will continue to eat away at the heart of our nation. Racial profiling is one of the most important civil rights issues facing our country today. Not only does racial profiling affect the direct victims, it negatively affects all people of color, in all generations, of all levels of economic standing.

...Running Head: RACIAL PROFILING Racial Profiling: Examining the Relationship between Race and Law Enforcement. Liberty University Wendy Thomas Abstract Law –a binding custom or practice of a community: a rule of conduct or action prescribed or formally recognized as binding or enforced by a controlling authority. Enforcement –the act of enforcing, to carry out effectively. These words together create a strong force in communities today, law enforcement. Law enforcement officers are supposed to ensure obedience to the laws, but for many minorities they ensure that “they” obey the laws. With hot spots such as YouTube, MySpace, and internet search engines, we are seeing more cases of racial profiling from law enforcement being brought to our attention. This eye opening topic is now being researched and studied at high rates, many researchers want to know if it is at all possible that minorities could be targeted be law enforcement. Racial Profiling: Examining the Relationship between Race and Law Enforcement. Racial disparities in the U.S. criminal justice system are pronounced (Council of Economic Advisors, 1999). So how is it that, The U.S. Department of Justice has projected that 28.5 percent of Black men will be incarcerated in their lifetimes, compared to 4.4 percent of White men (Bureau of Justice Statistics, 1997)? Are black men more likely to commit crimes or are they being profiled? The purpose of this paper is to provide a realistic perspective...
