Additionally, there were conflicts within the union, resulting in many people organized strikes against the head of the union’s wishes. Many of these strikes were ineffective, creating a greater unrest within the union. The unions and management of large businesses, always struggle for power in the workplace. Many workers work in poor conditions, paid low wages and long hours. The workers believe that if they go against the management in large groups, they might be strong enough to gain a say in their workplace decisions.
When push comes to shove, everyone makes a tough decision, but in the end the decision was either out of fear to protect themselves, or a strategy to gain a designated amount of authority. In today 's society, many of the decisions people make lead to riots in the streets and people getting hurt. Similarly, the Ferguson riot in Missouri years ago, where many civilians were injured because of decisions made by everyone involved. Whether it turned violent because they wanted to prove something or because they feared the police when they showed up. In the story, The Crucible, written by Arthur Miller, the characters also illustrate the fact that it is human nature to defend oneself, to strive to survive despite the harm such actions can cause to
They threatened him and verbally abused him. But he kept fighting, and is now surrounded by supportive friends. Iqubal is also a teen activist who can show that some teen activists are abused because of their protests. Like Malala, Iqbal was shot. Except
Overall, Danforth was wrong. He faces many difficult descions throughout the play, and yet he stays mostly consistent. He chooses to save his own reputation over the lives of innocent people. He knowingly sends three people to die, just so that he can look good. Danforth was the main cause of all of the heartbreak and struggle endured in Salem.
Maybe he would have felt guilty if he spent time in prison, but he died without ever being brought to justice(Cambodia). How is it possible that a genocidal killer lived his life without ever being brought to justice? He died a genocidal killer with no remorse for the millions he killed. This information all helps to prove that Pol Pot was the worst person to ever walk the face of the earth. That title should be given to a person who killed his own people for knowing how to read, or somebody who decreased half of a country’s population.
Jeffery's luck had finally ran out. He was put in court where he admitted that he killed them. But he pleaded not guilty. When he saw that they where not buying it. He pleaded insanity, but they saw that he knew of wrong doing and they convicted him 15 costive life sentences.

They arranged this rally to protest the several workers that were killed by the police the day before. Later on in the rally the police showed up at the Haymarket square to get rid of the rally. Once they started to come closer to the workers a person within the crowd threw a pipe bomb(to this day he is still unidentified). The police and also some members of the crowd opened fire and chaos broke out. Seven police officers and at least one civilian died as a result of the violence that day, and an untold number of other people were
Once Ryan decided to leave Jones found out and sent gunman to terminate Ryan and the reporter out of fear that the truth about Jonestown would be exposed. Soon after, as a form of rebellion, Jones told his people to gather around and commit what he called a “Revolutionary Act”(Moore 5). To clarify, later the next day,” Jim Jones, age forty-seven, was found dead from a single bullet wound to the head, most likely self-inflicted”(Jonestown 2). Jim Jones committed suicide after also leading nine-hundred plus people into the same dead end including Congressman Ryan, displaying beatings, and suicide drills. Out of fear of the consequences of his actions Jim Jones was held responsible for the mass murder and suicide his followers at The People’s Temple in Jonestown,Guyana on November 18,
Instances of police brutality has gone back as far as law enforcement officers having been established, and in todays time media coverage and police shootings have raised major questions over the choices made by law enforcement. Social media has opened way to videos unaired on television and hidden out of sight, as well as allowed people to communicate and find comfort within others over the wrong doings of those in authority. Protesting and raising questions leaves those in charge in a position where they must investigate and place responsibility where it is
Results from the trial lead many to believe justice wasn’t served. Defensive attorney John Adams used tactics to create confusion in the minds of the jurors so they could not be certain what actually took place. This proved to be very effective. Adam noted the crowd had been harassing the soldiers and also attacked them. There was no reliable evidence to back this up and it was generally believed, even if Preston was found guilty, he would be pardoned anyway.
Holding Police Accountable for their Killings of Unarmed People of Color Fruitvale Bart Station is where I begin and end my day. The infamous platform in Oakland, California where bart police murdered Oscar Grant, a fully restrained unarmed African American who was celebrating New Year 's Day with his friends and girlfriend. Johannes Mehserle, the police officer involved in the shooting was convicted of involuntary manslaughter. Thus, having to spend the minimum two years in prison but being he had time served he only would only spend seven months in jail with possible bail. Murder?
Throughout the decades people have been mistreated because of their ethnicity or affiliations. Especially during times of war and during or after terrorist attacks, people tend to stereotype certain ethnicities and release hurtful and discriminating things. This has happened, at one point in time, to both German-Americans and Arab-Americans. During World War 1, the effect on the German-Americans was devastating. Many German-Americans attempted to shed their heritage and become fully “American.” By assimilating into American society, the German-Language was dropped from many educational and cultural institutions in the United States.
As I have stated already, the main reasons were that they [Klu-Klux-Klan] were killing and brutally murdering black politicians, or even, any random citizen who was either for the “Reconstruction” . The other reason I stated was that they brought to many problems to themselves, that the “Northern Neglect” did not feel like they should be responsible for that. Tens of thousands people who live here all blame the ‘Northern Neglect” for this cause that was once beautiful. If only they would hear my argument on why I believe in what we did to them was very horrible,we were killers. They are just holding a deaf ear, but we can come to conclusion that it was our fault for this act that was once supposed to be a way to make America a land of opportunities, but instead turned it to a land of
For the railroad workers, the strike represented a chance to express their grievances toward their employers. By destroying equipment, disrupting rail services, and rioting, they fought for their wages, hours, and working conditions.The employers viewed that the differences between them and their workers increased after the Panic of 1873, and pay cuts in 1877 pushed many of the workers to form a strike. The government viewed the strike as a violent disruption to the railroads, their biggest industry at the time. They showed this when they helped employers by sending in federal troops to stop the protests, and ended the chance for workers to gain concessions from their employers. The Railroad strike showed how the disputes between workers and employers could no longer be localized in the new economy, and the deep resentment that workers had toward their employers.
