Are zoos good or bad? Most people think that they are good… but they just do not know about the other side of zoos. Female african elephants live 17 years in zoos but when they are in the wild they live 56 years. Zoos are unethical and should let all there animals out because they are bad for humans, hurt and separate animals, and Unhealthy for animals. Zoos are bad for humans, most people do not believe it but zoos are not educating us, they are hurting us.
her lawlessness and resistance to authority is the way of life on 6th Street. The focus of Goffman’s attention is on the cat-and-mouse game these men play with the police in an attempt to evade its authority and that authority is formidable. According to Goffman, decades of crime policies have turned high-crime urban neighborhoods into a high watch place by the police. Goffman offers the statistic that 60 percent of black men without a high school degree have been to prison by their mid-30s, with others suffering arrest and probationary sanctions. She takes as a given that the young men of 6th Street are destined to run away from the law, resist and lash out at police, and defy every effort to bring them to a stop.
The argument used by many death penalty advocates is that it serves to deter other violent criminals and murderers from committing such vicious acts themselves. Dating back to the early 1600s, the first recorded death sentence was carried out on Captain George Kendall in 1608 (Reggio). Kendall was killed by a firing squad for allegedly spying on America for the Spanish government (Reggio). This was the first of many executions by either a firing squad, hanging, asphyxiation, lethal gas, electrocution or lethal injection. Despite these horrific methods, Americans should support the death penalty because it demonstrates the power of the United States court system, serves as a warning to other offenders, protects citizens, and can bring a sense of peace to the families and friends of the
Healthy vampires often refer to subsiders as ‘filthy rats’ and ‘animals’ . Vampires who can still afford blood also support the decision to annihilate the captured subsiders, saying, ‘We cannot afford to feed them as well.’ Daybreakers hence shows how inability to purchase goods will cause severe discrimination from the rest of society. From the elaboration above, the added complexity to the dichotomy of bourgeoisie and the proletariat class is observable. There appears to be a continuum instead of a clear line between the two classes. At the top end is the wealthy vampires who take the role of bourgeoisie and on the other end is the subsiders who embody the marginalized, poor proletariat.
First let’s talk about the movie 12 monkeys; his movie was made in America since 1995. The plot in this movie is: there is deadly virus wipes almost all humanity in 1996, this virus was extremely contagious because this virus transfers by the air, and so people were obligated to live underground. The animals were the only living thing in the streets. The movie says that this virus was created by an army called the “12 monkeys”. James Cole was a prisoner living in the undergrounds of Philadelphia, so in the year of 2035 Cole was selected for a mission, where he is trained and sent back in time to collect information on the virus in order to help scientists develop a cure.
Jenkins explicitly states that “America has to own this problem”. She then lists reasons for juvenile criminals to be a problem particular to America. Readers can easily counter Jenkins original argument by employing logical reasoning: if America is responsible for juvenile criminals, it is immoral to sentence juveniles to life without parole because these “criminals” are only followers of a greater cultural phenomenon. Furthermore, this is evident in the case of Lionel Tate. Tate was only twelve years old when he allegedly murdered six year old Tiffany Eunick while mimicking a wrestling move portrayed in popular media.
“Do not judge my story by the chapter that you walked in on.” Nobody knows who wrote this quote however it is very good nonetheless. This quote shows that one should not judge another without first learning about their past and holds great significance in the novel To Kill a Mocking Bird. More specifically this pertains to Boo Radley. Over the course of To Kill a Mocking Brid Boo is seen as a maniac but as the story progresses the readers view of him changes from a crazed psychopath to simply a misunderstood boy. In the beginning of the story Boo is seen as crazed psychopath who eats cats and spies on people at night.
Should Zoos be Made Illegal? Zoos have been around for hundreds of years, in fact they can be dated back all the way to 1250 BC, when ancient Egyptian records described birds, lions, and giraffes in captivity. Today there are over 10,000 zoos worldwide, entertaining millions with exotic animals behind bars. With species threatened and habitats disappearing worldwide, due to poaching and destruction caused by man, zoos are playing a new role in conservation. But are they really achieving what they claim?
Jem describes his image of Boo, “..Six and a half feet tall,....he dined on raw squirrels and cats he could catch, that 's why his hands are bloodstained-if ate an animal raw you could never wash the blood off. There was a long jagged scar that ran down the side of his face: What teeth he had were yellow and rotten: his eyes popped, and he drooled most of the time.”(Lee 16) Boo is judged like a monster even though Jem and Scout have actually seen him before. Boo is a mockingbird because he is treated like a monster even though he remains unseen. As the story goes on we get to meet our first encounter with Boo. Boo is the mysterious savior who killed Bob Ewell to save Jem and Scout.
One way on how the power of language can manipulate society into believing in anything is by forcing every single person into speaking one language. The language that is spoken in 1984 is called Newspeak. Once World War Two came to an end the government of Oceania make a decision that they should put fear into every single one of their people's lives. They did this by putting a telescreen in everyone’s house and the government can spy on them by doing this. This causes the people to not say anything bad about the government aka the Party.
Bill knew what was going on and the only thing he did was cover up any evidence of it. Clinton also could have stopped Bin Laden but instead he let him get away. At this time Bin Laden was not the globally recognized villain he is now. But the CIA had been learning Osama had started to get into bigger terrorist circles planning bigger and worst acts of atrocities. The CIA had told Bill of the info about this new enemy and even asked if he wanted to stop and deter his movements.
When sent to court in Maricopa County he was found guilty of arson and the sentence could have been 10 to 20 years. However, during the proceeding Marin had swallowed cyanide to escape his fate. We also spoke about a Marxist theory that stated that government creates criminal laws to benefit the people who own the means of economic production. It reminded me of my previous post on the forum which spoke about private prison groups lobbying to create
EP- Extreme Smuggling Documentary The most expensive war in the US is the war to stop illegal drugs. Survey says that 20.8 million drug users are in US. Drugs took more than 50,000 lives just last year. In 2006, one semi-submersible was confiscated in Columbia with 6.8 metric tons of cocaine, the largest quantity of cocaine with a market value of more than 180 million dollars. Smugglers have expanded 100 semi-submersibles that are 100 feet long in size and capable of carrying 10 tons of drugs.
In the early 1980s, the United States declared an all-out war on drugs and over the past several decades the United States of America has traveled down a dark road when it comes to sentencing for drug offenses. One of the major tools that they used in this war on drugs is the mandatory sentencing laws. These laws were enacted in 1984 to help combat and get violent drug dealers off our streets. What these laws did was set a mandatory minimum sentence that stated if you are arrested for fifteen or more grams of crack cocaine, you would be charged as if you had five hundred grams of powder cocaine thus getting you a minimum of a ten year sentence in prison. If you are arrested for growing 100 marijuana plants under these draconian laws, you would be charged as if you were possession of 100 pounds of marijuana which carries a minimum of a five-year
Let us never forget the moment when President Nixon’s former domestic policy chief John Ehrlichman revealed in an interview with Harper’s Magazine in 1994 that was published last year that, “The Nixon campaign in 1968, and the Nixon White House after that, had two enemies: the antiwar left and black people”. Moreover, he said, “We could arrest their leaders, raid their homes, break up their meetings, and vilify them night after night on the evening news. Did we know we were lying about the drugs? Of course we did.”
