Police are having trouble dealing with the enforcement of transgender laws. An article written by Nico Lang states “When transgender bathroom laws were passed there were no specifics on how to enforce it, leaving law enforcers without a way to promote the law.” No one ever made any rules on how to enforce the bathroom laws, leaving police without ways to support and enforce it. Andy Cush further explains this, “That means that even if a department does come up with a firm policy for policing bathrooms it’s not clear what to do if and when they catch someone.” The police have no way to punish transgender people for going into the wrong bathroom. They can come up with ways to stop them, but there are virtually no consequences for breaking the law. Even Michael’s article supports this, telling people that there is “Absolutely no way to enforce the law as it relates to the enforcement of bathroom provisions.” The police can’t enforce the law without interfering with people’s basic needs to use the bathroom.
It was a right given to them by a case back in 1985, in which a person was killed by deadly force. Nevertheless, that is why sometimes police officers might get away with the killing of a citizen because there is not enough evidence that the use of force was not necessary. If these cameras are installed in officers uniforms the use of force will definitely decrease and will make the community feel safer and police officers gain more respect from the public. Finally, if the use of force is not necessary then a police officer can get suspend from the department after a judge has viewed the happenings of the case. The uses of cameras will not only make police officers use less force and the public feel safer, but it will also help the country become a safer place
In the past few days another unarmed black male was shot and killed by a white officer. His name was Terrance Crutcher. Betty Shelby, the white officer identified by police as the one who shot Crutcher, was not the only officer to draw a weapon on him. With three officers standing in a line behind Terence Crutcher and at least one more officer standing several feet behind them, the video shows, his body falls to the pavement. The officer 's attorney says she was afraid Crutcher was reaching for a weapon when she opened fire.
In my English class I read the book called Monster written by Walter Dean Myers. It was about a young man called Steve Harmon who was arrested for allegedly being a part of a crime gone horribly wrong, which sadly resulted in a man losing his life. It also spoke about what Steve had to endure throughout that entire process of that trail. In the end even tho Steve knew that the crime will occur he still was found not guilty. I believe that Steve Harmon should have been found not guilty because, he did not give a signal and he also did not receive any part of the money that taken from the robbery.
Different groups and people can claim they align with Occupy Wall Street, but since they do not have a leader, no individual can gain the ethos necessary to claim to speak for the entire group, or keep the movement focused on a concise and practical message. The fact that Occupy Wall Street is leaderless also delegitimizes Occupy Wall Street. If a member of Occupy Wall Street spoke about something that was clearly erroneous, and said something like all cops should be shot, then Occupy Wall Street cannot actually distance itself away from those erroneous comments of one individual, for they lack a leader or structural hierarchy to clearly define goals or to adequately condemn certain individuals in their movement who speak erroneously, and Occupy Wall Street prides itself on being all-inclusive. With effective social movements, like the AA civil right movement, leader were able to distance themselves and their organizations
Minority New Yorkers on a daily basis have experienced the negative actions of the NYPD by simply walking or driving. This would not be considered suspicious if you were not a minority male. Families never have an opportunity to feel safe when their male family members leave their home because of the actions of the NYPD officers. There are more than 179 cases of unarmed victims killed by the police (Kerby,2012). Improving the relationships of the minority communities and the NYPD is very important to strengthen New York City and combat crime.
amend. XIV, sec. 1). If the public were not able to videotape any of the police brutality then there would be nothing to ensure the innocence of many. If there is no evidence then the less likely the public would believe an African American would be innocent of any crime.
In the courtroom here on Tuesday, the current district attorney, Johnson Britt (no relation to the original prosecutor), citing his obligation to “seek justice,” not simply gain convictions, said he would not try to prosecute the men again because the state “does not have a case.” Mr. McCollum was 19 and Mr. Brown was 15 when they were picked up by the police in Red Springs, a town of fewer than 4,000 people in the southern part of the state, on the night of Sept. 28, 1983. The officers were investigating the murder of Sabrina Buie, 11, who had been raped and suffocated with her underwear crammed down her throat, her body left in a soybean field. No physical evidence tied Mr. McCollum or Mr. Brown, both African-American, as was the victim, to the crime. But a local teenager cast suspicion on Mr. McCollum, who with his half brother had recently moved from New Jersey and was considered an
Even Bill Cosby spoke out against giving the death penalty to the man who shot and killed his own son. Over 100 innocent people have been accused and executed over the years before death penalty was illegal. There are 8 ways to lead up to be in the position of the death penalty, the ways are treason, terrorism, espionage, drug trafficking, attempting to kill
In San Diego Police Chief Shelley Zimmerman recently said “footage from the city’s newly implemented body cameras will never be made public; we don’t release video to the media period”(Roller 2). Although the footage will never be made public, what are the chances that cyber hackers on the web, will never tampered with the evidence. Especially, with the new advance technology that anyone could
