Recently, many people have forgotten why the United States of America was formed, for freedom and independence from a king and state. Some of us even have trouble remembering what rights we do have, due to the gradual but continuous media and educational focus on more current distractions. Few have taken notice, or been able to see through the daily fog of which Iphone to buy or what flag offends who. There is still discrimination everywhere we look being race, body type, the religion we follow. More and more police are being caught on camera shooting unarmed citizens, throwing bombs into cribs during no-knock, warrantless entries, and causing the general public to lose faith in a system of governance originally set up to protect and serve.
Don 't get me wrong, it is bad but it 's not done with the intention of hurting someone else but to try and change their future.

These mothers fled because of gangs murdering their husbands, targeting their sons for recruitment, and threatening their daughters with sexual violence. More than 80 percent of these migrant women detained were found to have a credible threat to their safety if they were returned home.
Pedophile in Penn State The general argument made by Maia Szalavitz in her work, “Bystander Psychology: Why Some Witnesses to Crime Do Nothing”, is that it is wrong when people view crime, and they do not take action. More specifically, Szalavitz argues that people tend to keep quiet for each other as a conglomerate. She writes, ”Mike Mcqueary… witnessed child rape firsthand in 2002... How is it that a powerfully built ex-quarterback could watch the rape of a 10 year old boy and do nothing to stop it?... And why did the team and the university fail to act at every possible step? ” In this passage Szalavitz is suggesting that during the Penn state child rape cases by Jerry Sandusky, even close colleges who clearly knew of the situation, but

Mayella is usually beaten and sexually assaulted by him, especially when he is drinking, but Mayella has a plan that will let her be free from Bob. One would say she is not powerful because she is enclosed from the world, beaten by her father, and not very respected. For example, as Atticus asked Mayella to see if her father is good and tolerable to her, but she says “He does tollable, ‘cept when-”, ‘Except when he’s drinking?’ asked Atticus so gently that Mayella nodded.”(Lee, Chapter 18) This would prove that Mayella has less power than usual when her father is drunk because, his gender as a male has the power over her and gets violent when drunk. One would say this would already decrease her in having power, since she is a woman and women back then really did not have much rights or respect. But there was someone who was ever decent to her was Tom Robinson, an African American who was accused of her beating and sexually assaulting her.
An example of this is when he has trouble finding his wedding video and he wakes his parents up at two in the morning, accusing them of hiding it from him. The other main character, Tiffany is portrayed as bitter, mean, and sarcastic and also has some trouble communicating effectively with people. She is often very upfront in many scenes and can be described as having a “sick sense of humor”. An example of this is when she begins to proclaim that Pat is harassing her on Halloween night and when the police get involved, she claims that it was a joke. Tiffany also seems to be unempathetic and doesn’t allow people to explain a situation if she doesn’t understand it
Paragraph 2: The characters assumptions are realistic because people have very absurd beliefs in reality. Jean Cabot clutched to her husband Rick Cabot and immediately tried to go to the car and cross the street just because she saw two black men walking in a predominantly white area and was under the assumption that they were going to steal her car. Granted they did steal her car but it seems like after the incident her prejudice progressively gets worst. After she expressed her prejudicial views when she made a statement about the Hispanic locksmith stealing her keys and when he turned in her keys she looked as if she was ashamed of what she said. Rick Cabot is just like a real politician he gets robbed by black people and feels the need
One example is when the two white officers pull the car over with the black couple inside of it. Even though both officers know this is not the car they were looking for they still go out and question them. At one point one white officer asks the black couple to step out of the car.

To begin with, majority of the time, Nancy’s life is threatened due to her unhealthy relationship with Bill Sikes and so she tries her best to satisfy him. For example, Oliver ends up at the police station and the gang persuaded Nancy into going to the station to find out what had happened with Oliver. In order to do so, she had to change her appearance to look more like an upper class woman, and to not be recognized as a prostitute, because otherwise nobody would listen to her. As a result, Nancy plays the role of Oliver’s shocked sister, “ Oh, my brother! My poor, dear, sweet, innocent little brother!
Miranda v. Arizona effectively opened the eyes of civilians and government officials alike by forcing the police to inform accused criminals of their constitutional rights. The four cases involved shone light onto the issue of flaws in the law enforcement system. Despite being completely and utterly guilty, Miranda escaped a sentence by using imperfections within the system. In 1963 an 18-year-old girl is kidnapped and raped and afterward she provided a description of the man which police later identified as Ernesto Miranda. When police arrested Miranda, they failed to inform him of his Fifth Amendment and Sixth Amendment rights before the interrogation.
