The football team of the high school appeared “to have been ground zero for the scandal.” This resulted in a forfeit of their Friday game and a parental meeting to address these shocking events. These parents talked about the problems that are being exploited to the public and the lies that are being told. It is said that the children will be prosecuted with misdemeanors and the adults could be getting sexual offender charges depending on the photos they have acquired. With that being said, over 100 students could end up with misdemeanors because of their actions. Law enforcement does not know if this is a good prosecution because most of the student involved sent pictures of themselves.
She found any excuse to punish Dave, while favoring her other children, and her punishments grew more demoralizing the older he got. Initially, she would slap him, smash his face into the mirror and make him repeat “I’m a bad boy!” or require him to search for hours for an item she had “lost.” But with time, her cruelty grew to include denying him food for days on end, making him sleep on a cot in the basement, forcing him to wear the same unwashed shirt and pants to school every day for three years, and referring to him only as ‘the boy’ or
The catastrophic terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001, continue to have a notable effect on the United States. Nineteen members linked to the Islamic radical group Al-Qaeda executed suicide attacks; they took over four jet airliners, American Airlines Boeing 767 Flight 11, United Airlines Boeing 767 Flight 173, American Airlines Boeing 757 Flight 77 and United Airlines Boeing 757 Flight 93. Flight 11 crashed into the World Trade Center North Tower in New York, NY. Shortly after, Flight 175 hit the World Trade Center South Tower. Afterwards, Flight 77 blasted into the Pentagon in Washington, D.C.
The fourth plane crashed into an empty field near Shanksville, Pennsylvania. The rescue efforts and excavation of what became known as Ground Zero, but it wasn’t the first time it had been attacked. One World Trade Center was the site of a terrorist bombing on February 26, 1993. A total of 19 terrorists hijacked the four planes on 9/11. All of the men were from nations in the Middle East.
Planes with enough fuel were told to return to their airport of origin, and the rest was diverted to airports across Canada. Fearing the attacks may not be over and worried that other planes could be turned into “destructive missiles,” Transport Canada instructed NAV CANADA (the agency that handles air traffic control) not to redirect planes to large urban areas, such as Toronto, Ottawa and Montreal. Canada was also upset because they lost 24 Canadiens in the Twin Towers attack, the youngest of these age 29 and the oldest 70. Canada 's economy also would have suffered because of the attacks as most of their supplies comes from the United States. Canada was a quiet leader in sending aid, special rescue units, and equipment.
The Terrorist attack on 9/11 everyone was in awe. Something like this made us think about what we need to do to keep our freedom safe “The aftermath of the tragedies of Sept. 11, 2001, made America redefine freedom and security”(Airlines security policies post 9/11). Airport security around the nation had to make major changes. The first thing they changed was that ID name and picture had to match what was on your ticket. This made sure that no person could sneak onto an aircraft.
On the subject of comparing today’s events of African Americans standing up for justice and before the 60’s when they were fighting for justice, I am going to talk about the Trayvon Martin story. Trayvon Martin was an African American teenager who was in a lot of trouble in school having been suspended three times and even was caught with drugs in his book bag by the principal of his school. After he had came from the store buying skittles and an Arizona iced tea according to George Zimmerman (the man who shot Trayvon) he had said that, "This guy looks like he 's up to no good, or he 's on drugs or something. It 's raining, and he 's just walking around." After he had told this to the dispatcher, he ended up following Trayvon with the intent
They feel a sense of guilt and shame that holds them back from saying anything and we see this is the Mepham High School Football case. In the Mepham High School Football case there were three upperclassmen who lead the hazing attacks and were charged as minors on counts of aggravated assault and involuntary sexual intercourse. Also, the whole coaching staff was fired for knowing signs and not taking initiative of the behavior that lead to this case. This all started during training camp when one of the upperclassman called one of the freshman a “pussy”, “faggot”, and “cocksucker.” The freshman’s mom told head coach McElroy, so the coach replied “Okay, I’ll handle it.” From that moment on, the upperclassmen stopped calling the freshman “faggot” and started calling him “tattletale boy.” Another day at practice, the upperclassman approached the freshman while he was drinking from a water fountain. “Who do you think you are?” said the upperclassman, according to the freshman
A person harassing another can lead to one finding his/her identity. The book The Absolutely True Diary of a Part Time Indian talks about a fourteen-year old boy living on the spokane Indian reservation in Washington. Arnold Jr is bullied every day at his school by his peers because of how he was born. “Everybody on the Rez calls me retard about twice a day. They call me retard when they are pantsing me or stuffing my head in the
A few days before my court day in juvey, I had heard some of the JSO's (Juvenile Security Officers) talking about a muslim kid who got arrested for allegedly bringing a clock to school, whenever it was obviously a bomb. One of the officers who I was pretty close to told me that kids are getting locked up for stupid shit like me. Anyways, I just heard about a Sikh boy who got arrested because of a bully snitching on him and without questioning, the principal tells the police, and they detain the Sikh boy and take him to a Juvenile
According to “9/11 Attack,” this response manifested as the attacks on World Trade Center on September 11th, where approximately three thousand and four hundred people lost their lives. The journalism and photography coverage of this major event played a significant role in the creation of the Patriot Act and other controversial actions made by the American
Causes and Effects of 9/11 September 11, 2001 was a horrific day for all American citizens. Four American commercial flights were hijacked by Islamic extremist that would soon crash into some of the most important structures in America. From that day on we will remember the ones we lost and the ones who gave their lives to save others. This was the first major attack since Pearl Harbor in 1941 on American soil. Nineteen militants who were suicide bombers crashed into the Twin Towers, Pentagon, and a Pennsylvania field which had a central and global effect on the world caused by global terrorism increase and the spread of the group Islamic Extremist.
Vox Magazine states, “While the world rages on and problems like starvation, a massive refugee crisis, and homelessness remain unfixed, people in America — including an American presidential candidate — are arguing over a red beverage container.” Also, this debate has drawn focus away from the November 13th massacre in France. Instead of arguing over a cup, these celebrities should be trying to educate their audiences about worldwide issues. But at the end of the day, Starbucks probably did not intend this major response to its holiday cup. Instead, Starbucks intended that the cup be treated as a blank canvas, according to an article on Today. “Over the past few years, our customers have been showcasing their work on Instagram, Twitter and Pinterest, and we even held a contest to support this creativity.
September 11th, 2001, a date marked by history. A day where thousands of Americans would wake up to their family, their friends, and the world one last time. Over 3,000 lives taken away because of the actions of a few terrorists who wanted nothing more than to watch America fall to the ground. Suicide Bombers cause global terror, and their motives and strategies are all part of a complex system of sacrifice and glory. Justifying the actions of these terrible people is almost impossible, but learning the origin of suicide bombers, examining their tactics, and discussing their motives will provide a better look inside the mind of a bomber and possibly give an explanation as to why terrorist attacks occur.
Tuesday morning of September 11, 2001, United States awakened to the tragic events occurring in New York City. The nation came to a stop as hijacked planes collided into the country’s beloved Twin Towers, crumbling down within the matter of seconds. 15 years ago, the United States faced a major terrorist attack, with over 3,000 deaths and evidently bringing out the rage within the citizens. However, targets of revenge for this situation are faced by Sikh Americans, who still experience discrimination with their physical appearance in the nation today. Within the United States, the media limits the coverage Sikh Americans experience on a daily basis, and essentially undermining the discrimination that many of them still face today.
