Racial profiling is a serious problem as we have witnessed in the last few years in cases such as Oscars, Trayvon Martin and Sandra Bland. An even more serious issue is the ability of our law enforcement to get away with such heinous crimes. Oscar was guilty of committing a crime by fighting, yes, but the officer did not know who the suspect was and assumed Oscar was involved. Once he made the assumption of Oscar’s involvement, he then proceeded to speak toward Oscar with uneasiness and prejudice. From what the film shows, there were no witnesses so the officers had no basis of arresting Oscar and his friends.
They’re willing to give people life in prison because they “looked” like they committed the crime. Policies are even shooting random people because they look suspicious. We are all entitled to safety but not everyone feel safe. What hurts the most is that the people that are suppose to protect us and keep us safe are the ones that 's hurting and making us feel unsafe. Living life as a African American is very hard when everything is based off skin color and being black has become a substitute with being a criminal.

All cases of PTSD relatively are triggered by a disturbing part of one’s life. For Blanche, her trauma was witnessing the death of her husband. The story begins when Blanche, in scene six is recalling this with Mitch and she tells him she witnessed her husband with another man and for a while avoids the issue rather than confronting him.

She doesn’t understand why the town is being so racist towards Tom Robinson so she reads Mr. Underwoods editorial on the trial.

I feel that he wish he had another history to tell his son; to embrace some kind of hope in his son's future; to tell him that being black does not put his life in risk from being taken away. Coates knows that when his son soon or later will eventually start wondering about why he is being treated unfairly or different. He will begin to see the police brutality among his racial group; how many blacks of different ages get killed by the police just because they
This makes them seem more like villains than heroes. One case of this is in the murder of Kelly Thomas, “a Californian schizophrenic man who police beat to death in 2011. The story goes that the owner of a club called the police because they were suspicious that someone was breaking into the vehicles. When they arrived, the police saw no evidence of this. They did spot Thomas and they tried to question and frisk him.
I believe the biggest social problem in this film is social justice. The system was created to protect the people and ensure justice. True enough she was involved with the killing of her husband, but it all could have been prevented. One night he had pulled a gun on her and she had
There is a raging argument in the world that many people are divided about. The argument is gun control, should we ban guns, or is there another way to stop mass shootings? In my research book called “Shooting Back” it talks about how On July 25, 1993, a man named Charl Van Wyk personally experienced the attack on the ST James Massacre. At that time, their area was experiencing danger and fighting so Charl had his gun with him at the church. When a couple of men walked into the church holding guns, no one was sure what was happening, they thought it could have been part of a scene from the play going on, until the men started to fire at the crowd.

Both were unarmed and did not seem to endanger the lives of the police officers who were involved. In En Vogue’s song “Free Your Mind” there is a line “Before you can read me you got to learn how to see me”. This perfectly illustrates the story of these men. The police arguably acted based on their prejudices, before assessing the situation. Also, the most abhorrent part of the entire
He is said to have boasted to a person in jail saying that he hurt Sam Sheppard during the fight (www.murderpedia.org). Also, he revealed to Kathy Wagner Dyala former nurse’s aid to Ethel Durkin, who was assassinated by Eberling, that he killed Marilyn. Specifically the nurse reported, “He (Eberling) told me that he had killed her and that he hit her husband on the head with a pail and that the b**** hit the hell out of me.” Why would Eberling confess to two people (www.law2.umkc)? On Sam’s side, he had no clear motive to kill his wife.
