The video displays the violence in a way that was heart wrenching to the viewer. All the viewer hears is a car alarm and explosions, and to the viewers dismay they see the destruction people are causing. In real life at this time President Bush is in house, and his views on the riots were not displayed in the film, although they changed the perspective for many. In a real speech—not any part of the movie— President George Bush blamed the welfare programs of the 1960’s and 70’s for the outburst of violence. This angered many because participants or supporters of the riots believed a completely different story.
When the justice for Mr King was not given rightfully, the people from the streets who went through alike problems hear about it, they immediately want change. From gang members who initiated the truce that helped decrease street violence, to the average high school student being active in protest around the city, the riots were portrayed heavily by the people affected by the beating. At these times, around the clock news and live television coverage followed but also in Ice Cube’s “The Predator” and Rodney King 's speech to the city of Los Angeles. Rodney King, intoxicated, speeding down the interstate had ignored all police sirens and warnings. He led the California Highway Patrol on a eight mile chase down freeways and city streets.
Some officers do not do that. Some might not even call it in and try to hide the even from anyone ever knowing anything about it. “It reminds me of what I saw when I came to San Jose as police chief in 1976. Before my arrival, a San Jose officer pursuing a black man for a traffic violation had fatally shot him in front of his home” (McNamara, J.
The story of Ronald Gene Simmons. On the 22nd of December, 1987 the worst mass murder in Arkansas history took place. A man by the name of Ronald Gene Simmons went on a killing spree. He started off by killing his wife, kids, and his three year old granddaughter, but it didn’t stop there. He killed his family and quite a few harmless townspeople because he went insane, because why else would you kill harmless people?
On the other side, bin Laden had very many followers, including all of those in Al- Qaida. The terrorist group demonstrated old Islamic beliefs, but abused them with new technology (Graham para. 3). Many people look up to him and say that he demonstrated how to use power and not conform to others. Also, Al-Qaida members believe that the assassination was unjust because he was not armed during the invasion by U.S troops.
So after McCarthy made these statements, it almost made like a ripple effect by having everyday people, being accused of people that “suspected” that they were communists as well. And as a result of everyday people being accused, they would be put on a blacklist. In today’s world, the person that has caused others to be accused is Osama Bin Laden. The people that play the role of the accuser, is the American government. And the people who are accused are Muslim Refugees from the middle east.
The Patriot Act In post nine eleven America there was and still is a hysteria regarding terrorism. People were scared for their lives every time they went outside Bureaucrats and politicians were in a state of “fear” for themselves and their families. Politicians saw this as a time to do what they wanted in congress with terrorism as a cover story. This fear enacted many new bills and laws, but none were as controversial as the Patriot Act. From an observational standpoint this act was seen as any other to Americans in fear of terrorist acts.
“Take a Picture (or Video), It Lasts Longer” On August 9th 2014, Michael Brown, an unarmed black teenager, was shot and killed by police officer Darren Wilson in Ferguson Missouri. On November 24th, the St. Louis grand jury decided there were no probable cause to indict Mr. Wilson. This decision sparked an outrage around the community where building where set on fire and lootings were prevalent around the city. With much of the evidence being he-say-she-say, it is hard for the public to actually know what happened. This led to an increased interest in body cameras.
There is one example that stood out in particular. Freddie Gray, a 25 year old Black man from Baltimore, was arrested and thrown in a police van. About an hour later, he came out with his spine almost destroyed. He was not the first person to have this done to him and it is unlikely that he will be the last. In Baltimore slang, that is considered going for a “rough ride.” David Von Drehle, highly educated in the roots of a riot, explained how the “rioting broke out after Gray’s funeral on April27—a night of arson, looting and brick throwing that led the mayor to declare a 10 p.m. citywide curfew as Maryland Governor Larry Hogan called out the National Guard” (Drehle 36).
However, others believe that in order to prevent terrorism immigration should be strictly limited or even banned. These ideals have been increasingly embraced in the United States following the horrifying terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001. A staggering number of 2,753 people passed away due to that sickening event (“9/11 by the Numbers”). Such an occurrence would understandably instill fear in the American people. This has been especially true when it comes to immigrants from Middle Eastern nations and or are of Islamic faith.
It is sad to even think about it now. The two men that murdered little Emmett was the husband of the girl that he talked to in the store, and the man’s cousin. “African American from Chicago, is brutally murdered for flirting with a white woman four days earlier. His assailants-the white woman’s husband and her brother-made Emmett carry a 75-pound cotton-gin fan to the bank of the Tallahatchie River and ordered him to take off his clothes. The two men then beat him nearly to death, gouged out his eye, shot him in the head, and then threw his body, tied to the cotton-gin fan with barbed wire, into the River.” ( website history).
Sword is seen to destroy, kill, and solve problems, but really it doesn’t. Let’s see an example. The Freedom Rides during the Civil Rights movement. The event of people riding buses to protest was peaceful. But to add to the problem local law enforcement, and even the local people attack the buses and killing people showing the power of the sword.
The one teacher jumped on the lap of the other teacher, taking a bullet that would have hit the other teacher in the head. That same teacher who was shot was able to pull the fire alarm to save other lives. Almost three years ago to the day, another gunman open fired during a screening of “The Dark Knight Rises.” On July 19, 2012, in the Aurora, Colorado theater, James Holmes used an AR 15 rifle, a 12-gauge shotgun, and at least one 40-caliber handgun. He killed 12 people and injured 70 others. He was arrested outside the theater approximately seven minutes after someone called 911
It is mention in the Quran that killing one soul is like killing all mankind and saving one soul is like saving all mankind. However, we don’t know what those attackers really are, but we know that they aren’t Muslim. Or if they call themselves Muslim they not following what Islam thought us, killing an innocent person is a huge sin in Islam. “One tweet explains why you should never Blame all Muslim for terrorism”, in this article Halltiwanger, john discusses about the tweets that have been posted in Friday, the day Paris was attacked .There were a lot of tweets, almost of the tweets was blaming the entire Muslim for being responsible of the terrorist attacks, for example these tweet says: “Muslim terrorize the world even more today, senseless murders in Paris. Islam is disguising.” But there was one tweets which said ” To people blaming refugees for attacking Paris tonight .Do you not realize these are the people the refugees are trying to run away” .
Alton Sterling would be another perfect example of police brutality against the African race. Mr. Sterling was selling cds outside of a store and a homeless man approached him asking him for money he showed his REGISTRATED gun and said leave me alone. The police arrived and took Mr. Sterling to the ground and had him restrained when they said he reached for his gun then the police office shot him in the chest. I feel as if everyone was to come together as a community in the places they live then we could stop this issue sooner than later. This situation is sad and heart breaking and sad to many families because their loves ones and friends are being killed by the police force for no reason at all.
