Mob Behavior and the Problems of Law and Order.
STRUCTURE OF THE ESSAY
Start your essay with an incident of violent civil protests and subsequent police brutality to link both of them. Keep in the mind that we need to elaborate in this essay mainly about policing challenges due to rising mob violence/violent protests and changes in its nature.
Also remember that mob lynching is just a minor part of mob violence, so don’t write all about lynching.
Protests can be both positive & negative, but in this essay focus should be on negative (violent) protests because only then policing challenges arise. Nowadays, term ‘mob’ has negative connotation which means disorderly crowd with an intent of causing trouble or violence.
Write about the reasons of protests, and then different types of new era protests.
We can also mention little historical incidents of protests before independence & how the police dealt with such protests.
Explain changing nature of violent protests/mob violence; simultaneously compare how police has not changed in this whole period (lathi-charge, police firing etc.)
Discuss about police ineffectiveness in handling protests and provide some reasons for that. (lack of police reforms, police-community relations, training etc.)
Give some solutions for security agencies to handle law & order situation arises due to violent protests. (riot control methods)
Finish an essay with why we need protests for protection of right to freedom of expression in democracy and also mention how police should control unlawful assembly with care. You need to criticize mob violence in any case because it’s a crime against nation & humanity.
