So she sacrificed her job to take care of her son, even though it was a risk because they needed the money. Also, in the book Zopa gets arrested by Captain Shek because the Captain assumed that Sun-jo was on the mountain illegally(which he was). All of the porters and Sherpas risked their jobs and tried to get Zopa out of the situation. Over a walkie, Josh states, “As soon as the porters and Sherpas herd about Zopa’s arrest, they all gathered around Shek’s headquarters to hold a silent vigil. Shek tried to disperse them, but they wouldn 't budge.”(175) The Sherpas and porters really care about Zopa and they were willing to sacrifice their important jobs to save him.
In Nelson Algren book The Man with the Golden Arm and Never Come Morning focuses on junkies, gamblers, and drunks in some areas in the neighborhood(Nelson Algren). His book Never Come Morning was banned for decades from the chicago public library. Between 1930s-1950s, polish immigrants came into the area in big numbers of groups after the World War 2(Byrne,2008). They came in and established their ethnic groups and offered shops, restaurants, and banks in their group, people spoke their language, it was like a small
Soldiers began to flee the area for fear of approaching enemy. Ironically, the men were on the same side, and the shooters were ambulance drivers who were not suppose to add to the casualties, just treat the men. Frederic and Bonello had obviously been psychologically pushed to their limits, and struggled not only with the enemy, but their own. Emotions in war were high amongst all men and they had to release their
Stop and Frisk has been a controversial issue since it was first enacted in 1964. Stop and Frisk is a officer protection procedure where a person is stopped for what the officer deems "reasonably suspicious" and then if needed the officer will frisk the person for weapons. The part that has been deemed controversial and what had many departments in hot water was the fact that many of the citizens were being stopped solely on their race and because they were in a bad part of town. Former Mayor Bloomberg of New York City rejected the idea of the courts when they declared stop and frisk as unconstitutional. He accused the judge of not giving the city a fair trial and said they would appeal the ruling so that they could allow the current stop and frisk procedures to continue.
The Brotherhood of Sleeping Car Porters was founded after the porters approached A. Philip Randolph who had no ties to Pullman Company. He was reluctant at first but agreed to take on the cause. He fought for 12 years to be recognized. The Brotherhood of Sleeping Car Porters won its first contract with the American Federation of Labor. The fight wasn’t just for the porters, it was for maids, and any other positions African Americans held on the Pullman Trains.
He sends Max in agony out back in the streets again for the right reasons so that Max would have a chance of living, since the German police were out going door to door searching residents houses. Han’s intentions were to only protect him by making this choice. From this choice, Han suffers this agony silently, and he couldn’t take a chance that can kill Max: “… he could have been asleep in the basement or sketching in his book” (60.21). Han could’ve let Max stay and do his things in his basement but the problem was, what if the police came and took Max? Han would suffer even more emotionally because he could have done something to save his life.
‘It was all right to shut him up, Mr Radley conceded, but insisted that Boo not be charged with anything: he was not a criminal’ p.12 Boo has been shut inside for 20 years, the stories about him are greatly exaggerated, for example Jem’s description of him ‘judging from his tracks’ p.14. Having been kept inside for that long it would not be surprising to find that he suffers from anxiety when in company. ‘Dill left us in early September to return to Meridian’ p.17 Dill is only with them outside of school term times. In a sense he becomes a means within the plot to allow Jem and Scout to communicate information to the reader which they otherwise would not need to verbalise. However, he is also an instigator of action, it is he who pushes for the outing of Boo
White wants to answer, but, Mrs. White interrupts him, “Well we got a 200 pound will for your death, you were in a machinery accident.” Herbert counters against his father, “A machinery accident that’s, that’s absurd. We all know that one of my co-workers got caught in the machinery, it was a very sad day. Don’t joke around about that father.” “We’re not messing around, that’s what happened.” Mrs. White sadly defends. “Who told you that story Herbert?” Mr. White questions Herbert. The Whites, perplexed, are sure that Herbert was the one that died in the machinery accident.
The illusions of death given by Orwell demonstrate a devilish scene. Our attention bleeds deeper into the story. By the time he is done with the story he leaves his audience with bloody wounds and twisted thoughts. The author’s attitude reveals that an individual’s true self will affect the choices he makes. For example, when the crowd passed the dead body no one cared to comfort the dead man’s family.
Most people complain about “ police brutality “ after being arrested, they are out to seek some form of compensation for their mistreatment from officers. They feel it is their right as a citizen to be treated like everyone else when they resist arrest. Which in their mind is they are allowed to disrespect an officer and not have any consequences placed on them. No matter the situation police procedure is to use enough force to restrain the suspect and protect themselves. People are advised to never resist arrest, the more a suspect struggles the more force is required for the police to do their
Bass would not back down, and inspired others to do the same. This would lead to others having the courage to hand out leaflets and pamphlets promoting union organization, something that would have never happened before at such a large company. Bass would be beaten again, and this would only further inspire unionists. Firestone worker, J.R. Carroll drove his car between unionists and assailants to protect the unionists from an oncoming attack (160). The Bass beatings
Despite the good efforts of John Barnstead, the system still had its flaws, for example due to the fact that bodies would bloat soldiers would have to cut rings off their fingers, which in turn caused people to mistrust the soldiers as they believed that the soldiers were stealing valuable property from the dead. A big problem that also occurred after the explosion was the lack of housing after the explosion. As mentioned before, the explosion had wiped out a
In my opinion, if you have to ban a certain type of clothing because people are committing crimes with it then obviously your government isn’t doing something right and needs to be replaced immediately. I also read that the police would wait until the Sailors beat up the Chicanos during the Zoot Suit riots to arrest the Chicanos for fighting instead of both the Sailor and the Chicano. This discrimination and brutality against Chicanos from the Los Angeles police has been going on for a while now and it needs to stop. It’s one of the most disturbing and unheard of parts of history. Douglas Monroy was trying to educate the reader about the tough times of being a Chicano in Los Angeles but in reality he’s just trying to show the tough times for Chicanos overall in
Even though the emergency responders for the world trade center on 9/11 were able to save a lot of lives they still had some flaws in their plan which if avoided could have reduced the number of responders life lost. The biggest flaw that caused a lot of deaths was the lack of inter-department communication and collaboration. The two largest emergency department’s that responded to the tragic event were the police department and the fire department and lack of team work led to certain causalities. For example, according to The New York Times, twenty-one minutes before the building fell, warnings were captured on police radio tapes which was then relayed to police officers and lead to escape of most of them. Yet most firefighters never heard those warnings, or earlier orders to get out, due to the frequent failures of their system which occurred that morning.
Not to mention the fact that two of his sons died and not being able to capture John Wilkes Booth after he made a terrible mistake for shooting one of the country leaders in the war. John had the whole Union army after him and might 've been shot in the neck but other stories say otherwise. In the end John died and paid for his dear mistake. Allan influenced other police in the later times after the war. They started to open more and more police and detective agency 's after that.
