 John Quiggin: Race, law and order
An important part of the success of this political combination is that it's objectively true that, for the crimes that most perturb people such as burglaries and muggings, large proportions of offenders are young, unemployed drug users.
Given the complexities of asylum law, this term would be more clearly justified in the case of, say, British tourists who overstay their visas, but such people are not ‘Them’.
But it does mean dumping the baggage of the past, including the romantic pro-criminal line that was part of 60s radicalism and the reflexive (and scientifically unsupported) opposition to lengthy terms of imprisonment that characterises a large proportion of academic criminologists and legal scholars.

 Law and order (politics) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Supporters of "law and order" argue that effective deterrence combined with incarceration is the most effective means of crime prevention.
Opponents of law and order argue that a system of harsh criminal punishment is ultimately ineffective because it does not address underlying or systemic causes of crime.
Candidates may exaggerate or even manufacture a problem with law and order, or characterise their opponents as "weak" on the issue, in order to generate public support (see negative campaigning).

 The Law of Politics: The Conference
Political scientists have developed behavioral models of judicial decision-making that correlate legal outcomes to such factors as ideology and political preferences.
Judicial activism, in the sense of interpreting the Constitution to impose meaningful constraints on legislative action, appears to be a staple of the modern Supreme Court.
Beyond any specific constitutional decisions, the idea of the rule of law in its particular American manifestation has made possible such institutional innovations as the Independent Counsel, which while it was in effect frequently had impacts on political careers and agendas.

 Order: West's Encyclopedia of American Law
The decision of a court or judge is made in the form of an order.
A court may issue an order after a motion of a party requesting the order, or the court itself may issue an order on its own discretion.
For example, courts routinely issue scheduling orders, which set the timetable and procedure for managing a civil lawsuit.

 [No title]
This is not only important for crime control politics generally, it is essential for community strategies in particular because the dominant discourses and even much academic research emphasizes a technocratic ‘what works’ approach which implies political neutrality and objective analysis.
Indeed, a common theme of the chapters in this volume is the tension between the national priorities on law and order, situational crime prevention and uniform policymaking, and the nature of local crime problems, socio-economic contexts, and interests of local community residents.
This is an extremely important political context for policy development and implementation in general but one that appears to have particularly important consequences for crime control because of the great temptation for tough law and order politics at regional, national and supranational levels and more complex, contingent strategies at local levels.

 Extreme Politics in Israel by Ehud Sprinzak
In a democratic regime, extreme politics is that political activity which involves the direct action of extreme groups, and has to do with protests, demonstrations and systematic infringements of the prevailing law and order.
Extreme politics does not concentrate therefore around the parliament and the cabinet, is not aimed at election day and does not follow the accepted rules of the game played by the big parties, major interest groups and central economic blocs.
This new split was to have a decisive influence on the political map of Israel, though it took the better part of the last ten years to crystallize.

Law and Order jumped the shark the first time their promo's used the line "Ripped From the Headlines".
Law and Order is still one of the best shows on TV and hasn't really jumped the shark, although they have tested the approach to the ramp a few times.
Law and Order remains one of the better shows on television (thanks to the continued efforts of Jerry Orbach and Sam Waterston), but to see television at it's finest, watch seasons 1-8 on AandE (pre-Angie years).

 Swans Commentary: Law And Order, by Philip Greenspan - pgreen40
Accordingly, the laws that they create must appear to be neutral in effect but are skewed to satisfy their interests.
Law and order should not be confused with justice.
The corporate swindlers and their elite confederates in crime who pilfered fortunes from stockholders, employees and creditors are still enjoying the fruits of their schemes; yet petty criminals whose offenses were sometimes the result of their desperate situations and amounted to small potatoes may be confined to a life in prison.

The judge places the order, and the jury receives the dishes, but it was not necessarily designed to be a coherent meal.
First, his proposal assumes that the law itself is clear and correct, and that what I have been calling "gut feel" only introduces noise into the system.
Bumble put it, "The law is an ass." In our case, a professional jury, taking a logical, by-the-book interpretation of the law, probably would have convicted the defendant of murder.

Up until today, it was my impression that all of our viewers understood that these shows are works of fiction as is stated in each episode.
Kevin Reilly, president of NBC Entertainment, which broadcasts "Law and Order," said the line in question "involved an exasperated detective bedeviled by a lack of clues, making a sarcastic comment about the futility of looking for a suspect when no specific description existed."
On Thursday, a Texas judge found that the treasurer of a political committee founded by DeLay violated state campaign laws, although DeLay was not accused of wrongdoing in the ruling.

The Project for Integrating Spirituality, Law, and Politics is an outgrowth of the Law Task Force of the Foundation for Ethics and Meaning (FEM).
The Law Task Force transformed itself into the independent Project for Integrating Spirituality, Law, and Politics in the summer of 2001, when some 30 “Spiritual/Political” legal activists gathered for the first of two annual retreats to synthesize the work of previous years in the creation of a new organization.
Indeed it is the blend of spiritual and political activism, and the cross-fertilization of the encounter between these two historically separated universes, that distinguishes our group from virtually all other spiritual or political movements within law.

 The Scotsman - Politics - Blair on defensive over law and order   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-03)
TONY Blair yesterday struggled to regain the law and order initiative after he made a surprise promise to control violent street crime within five months and said he is now holding crime meetings in the room for national emergencies.
In what looked like a calculated move to regain the law and order agenda, Mr Blair told parliament that violent crime on England’s streets would be brought "under control" by September.
The pledge came during an exchange with Iain Duncan Smith during which the opposition leader repeatedly attacked Labour’s failings on law and order, claiming muggings in London were running at 192 a day.

 The PM's vision for law and order is fair but flawed | Politics | The Observer
Generally, the cap fits: anti-terror laws that sidestep habeas corpus, ID cards that mine private data for unspecified Whitehall use, restriction of jury trial in the name of cost efficiency.
While it is disingenuous for a Prime Minister to imply he is not part of the establishment, it is his democratic responsibility to consider measures that address the concerns of voters who feel alienated from the system.
Mr Blair's thesis is that the principle of equality before the law has been undermined, not by government authoritarianism, but because victims of crime feel unfairly treated by courts and police.

With the emergence of technology that allows users to filter the information they receive to comport with their own world view, Andrew said that politics will follow suit; both political parties and commercial advertisers will increasingly use “the buildable, suggestive search function” to tailor messages to individual voters.

Labour will this week ram home the law and order message at the heart of its local election campaign, despite a warning from the government's chief youth justice adviser that children are being demonised because of hysteria over teenage crime.
The party believes that its "Respect agenda" is crucial in persuading disenchanted supporters to vote, proving that it cares about disadvantaged communities who suffer more from crime.
But yesterday Professor Rod Morgan, chief adviser on youth crime, suggested that labelling children with "the mark of Cain" could be counterproductive and that overloading the system with low-level cases would make it harder to manage higher risk cases properly.
