A major benefit for having body cams is the fact that it will decrease the force used by Police Officers. For the past couple of years there has been many videos of Police Officers using excessive force against innocent victims, especially with African Americans. “The notion has been around for a while. But since August 's fatal shooting of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri -- for which witness accounts varied widely -- it 's gained traction to become part of the national conversation about police conduct.” (Brandon Griggs 1) People have been recently protesting against Police Officers because of the excessive force people have seen them use recently in viral videos. Some Departments have been using body cams and have seen some significant results.
Society as a whole has become less and less violent. Since 1991, reported crimes committed has dropped by almost double (Statista.com). Many people blame the AR-15 for most of the mass murders in America, and ask for the “assault” weapon to be banned. However, many details of the gun are skewed. In an article written by Margot Sanger-Katz of The New York Times, she stated that of all the gun deaths in America, 60% were suicides; and even more contrary to belief, nearly double of the mass killings (4 or more deaths) were with handguns instead of rifles (statista.com).
This is a decrease of about 16 % of soldiers in 4 years. Connecting this rapid decrease in population during the First World War to the fact that this war is defined as a “total war“ one could say that the war had a dangerous effect on the population. Many people lost family members, friends and other people in their surroundings. John Bourne describes the consequences of the war as : “ The cost of all this in human terms was 8.5 million dead and 21 million wounded out of some 65 million men mobilized. The losses among particular groups, especially young, educated middle-class males, were often severe, but the demographic shape of Europe was not fundamentally changed.
Both Beatty and Martin Bormann had been brainwashed into believing or disbelieving in a particular topic. Beatty and the rest of society had been grown up only remember that books were bad and owning them would be a disgrace. However, there were some citizens in their society who disobey these rules which resulted in them getting ‘fixed’. After visiting Montag, Beatty had explained to him that they have lowered the kindergarten age year so they can catch just about every child and teach them at a young age. Lowering the kindergarten age, shows the different ways that the government tries to keep everyone from books keeping them from thinking for themselves.

Should guns be banned or should guns still be kept in America?This topic of banning guns has been a progressing debate yet the question still remains unanswered.Many people have probably heard of someone or knew someone that got injured or killed by a gun.These incidents happen every day from suicides to homicides.First, guns cost the lives of many people in America.Guns cost the lives of more than 30,000 people each year.If guns were banned, the number of deaths would reduce.Second, other populated countries with more gun control laws have lower suicide and homicide rates than the United States,which shows how having more gun control laws could affect the U.S.Finally, guns are rarely used in self defense when an individual is in a dangerous
Arguments: One of the most convincing arguments is that it drastically decreases crime rates according to the statistics. Numerous studies have shown that this method “stop and frisk” has actually decreased crime rates. This fact is opposed by many saying that police are targeting minorities and meaningfully stop and frisking them. However, according to Jay Stalien an African American officer “it will ALWAYS have a higher rate of blacks getting stopped, and will ALWAYS have a higher rate of blacks getting killed … The statistics will follow the same trend for Asians if you go to China”. He also goes on to say “"Fact: As of July 2016, the breakdown
Research and clinical experience regarding the use of excessive physical punishment (spanking) is that it is generally ineffective since it never tells the child what to do, only what not to do (Dizon, Baldo & Camara 2000). With this, it is surprising to note that despite of the several methods teachers can use to lessen or control misbehaviors of children, some teachers and countries still adapt this approach in modifying challenging behaviors of children. A depressing truth shows that “Physical abuse can also be a result of parental and/or school discipline in which a child is punished by beating or other forms of corporal punishment. It should be noted, however, that there are large cultural differences in the interpretation of corporal punishment as abuse.” Many Western countries classify corporal punishment of any kind as physical abuse, although this is not true for the US or Canada. However, according to CNN.com 31 nations fully ban corporal punishment.
Also with the presence of gun the number of suicide deaths decrease. Between 1999 and 2013, there were 270,237 firearms suicides in the United States (Procon 4). Hoping to decrease the number of suicides throughout the years. These are some advantages
A decade later, and Portugal’s results have been outstanding. ‘The Cato paper reports that between 2001 and 2006 in Portugal, rates of lifetime use of any illegal drug among seventh through ninth graders fell from 14.1% to 10.6%; drug use in older teens also declined. New HIV infections in drug users fell by 17% between 1999 and 2003, and deaths related to heroin and similar drugs were cut by more than half.’ (Maia
According to the federal bureau of investigation crime rates have significantly dropped since 2010. There has been a plethora of efforts to make the current averages plummet, such as G.R.E.A.T., Comprehensive whole child intervention and prevention program, Truancy reduction program, School resource officer program, Scared straight program, etc. The core focus of this paper is to analyze these programs and their results to see whether or not these programs are effective in preventing and suppressing gang involvement. While also pointing out a few implications, and possibly recommendations for future research. Koffman et al.
Gun Control would lower crime rate Crime is a major social and legal problem not just an issue of our individual psychology. ( Great Robberies) This meaning that crime is a major issue in society and gun control would lower crime rate. Crime and murder is a major problem in our society, I believe that if you impose gun control, crime and murder rate would drop percentages. California passed some of the nation’s most strict gun laws over the past two decades, and gun deaths have declined by more than half. Gun violence across California dropped 56% from 5,500 gun deaths in 1993 to 2,935 in 2010.
Black Lives Matter strongly believes that police brutality is a very bad problem and is against police authority. Police officers in some areas are now forced to wear body cameras. The Orlando Police Department did a twelve-month study on choosing forty-six random officers to wear a body camera. When the study was a huge decline in use-of-force with officers and people went down. “Civilian complaints against those officers also say a 65 percent decline” (Study Shows Less Violence).
