The Broken Windows Theory in the Context of Social Problems in Bangladesh
A temporary market for short time in a day or in a week is known as street market. Selling a variety of goods, including flowers, fruit and vegetables and ice cream, even cloths, mobile accessories and other handicrafts at street or beside traffic road is the marketplace of this street market. There is no requirement for a street trader to show the license or membership in public, only authorized officers of the council and the police may request to see it.
In Bangladesh there are so many street markets. However, some street markets create hazardous problems which make impact on human health and sometime led them to life risk. The Illegal street market in Dhaka is one of the greatest problems that faces by its residents and passersby every day. There are lots of illegal markets on the footpath of Dhaka’s street. There are growing some major and hazardous problem for this type of market. Moreover, the living environment became unhealthy and people are suffering from different types of problems. Throwing plastic bag, wastage of fish & chicken and rubbish is becoming common scenario at the footpath.
‘’108-km footpaths in Dhaka city is under illegal occupation’’ (The independent, 2015). These footpaths are occupied by illegal markets. Our Aim is to stop illegal market because; it creates so many Problems for passer-by, general people and for Government. There is a list of problems: 1) traffic jam; 2) breathing problem; 3) unhealthy environment; 4) time waste; 5) harassment; 6) hazardous; 7) accident; 8) pollution and others.
These are some common problems that faces by general people and passerby every day in every footpath in Dhaka city. Here are some major reasons that’s why this problem is not still solving.
At last, its true that. The Broken Windows Theory is applicable only for US context. Because the problems in USA and Bangladesh are not same. I think that, this theory has many limitations. It’s not effective everywhere. So, its better to modify this theory in Bangladesh or should make another theory for solving problems in Bangladesh.
Broken Windows Theory: St., J. P. K. B. (2007). Pockets of crime: Broken windows, collective efficacy, and the criminal point of view. ProQuest E-book Central. Essentially this chapter states the key ideas of the broken windows theory and collective efficacy. The broken windows theory predicates that high levels of a disorderly neighbourhood can unknowingly influence crime which can lead to effects such as fear and a lack of social control which then serves a foundation for more pressing crimes, as...
The Birmingham prison riot of 2016 has been commonly described as “the worst prison riot seen since the Strangeways riot” (Yorkshirepost.co.uk., 2016) that irrupted in 1990. After the disorder there was a rough estimate of 500 inmates involved as four wings out of a total eleven wings filled into a full-scale riot. It lasted from 12 to 15 hours until negotiations started and the prison was safely under control by authorities. During the over 12 hours of disorder inmates destroyed...
Literature suggests that 311 data alone may not be sufficient to measure collective efficacy and similar social constructs, rather big data combined with individual surveys and qualitative data are a more effective measure of behavioral constructs. Daniel O’Brien (2015) examines the use of 311 data as a measure of custodianship in Boston. Custodianship is a concept similar to collective efficacy that refers to the practice of an individual taking ownership of repairing physical disorder in public space. O’Brien pulled data...
Over the past decades, police brutality has become more common in Ottawa. Whether it be homeless people being beaten, black men being stopped and investigated for no reason and blaming black men for drugs. I’ve chosen this topic because listening to news like this makes not just me, the whole community uncomfortable near cops. This relation between cops and community gives not just Ottawa but Ontario a bad name as this is spreading like wildfire across Canada. In general, I’ll...
Kimmel and Aronson outline the 4 major theories of crime. They also consider the explanations of why the United States has such a high crime rate. Crime is an act that it illegal and that breaks a group norm. An example would be homicide. However, not all crimes break group norms, such as smoking marijuana, but are bad because they are illegal. There are two categories of crime: violent crime and property crime. The first theory that Kimmel and Aronson...
In 1983, the four-step approach ‘SARA’ was initiated. It served as a “problem-oriented” approach to combat crimes. Community-oriented policing is a way for law enforcement officials and neighborhood leaders to work together for the good of the community, in which it would help identify and find solutions to problems occurring within that community. The first from the acronym ‘SARA’ is scanning. Scanning looks at reoccurring criminal activity, victims involved, common areas where crimes take place, and the kinds of crimes...
