President Donald Trump is definitely not very happy about these protests, saying that the players are disrespecting our flag and should be suspended or fired. People against these protests also believe that by taking a knee during the anthem the players are disrespecting the military and all of the sacrifices they make for our country. There have been several veterans, though, who have spoken out and said that they agree with and are on the protester’s side. Others say they will never watch the NFL again, because they do not want to support anything disrespecting America. NFL players have the freedom of speech and protest rights so they are able to speak out against
There is one example that stood out in particular. Freddie Gray, a 25 year old Black man from Baltimore, was arrested and thrown in a police van. About an hour later, he came out with his spine almost destroyed. He was not the first person to have this done to him and it is unlikely that he will be the last. In Baltimore slang, that is considered going for a “rough ride.” David Von Drehle, highly educated in the roots of a riot, explained how the “rioting broke out after Gray’s funeral on April27—a night of arson, looting and brick throwing that led the mayor to declare a 10 p.m. citywide curfew as Maryland Governor Larry Hogan called out the National Guard” (Drehle 36).
They destroyed their entire city. Burning every one of their buildings to the ground, which is very cruel. Another instance of this is shown through Rashid Fadl Abi-l’Hair writings, a Muslim historian in 1498,” These invaders burned our great libraries, broke our canals and ditches, destroyed our farms, defiled the true Faith by raising temples to Buddha…attempted to destroy our trade with paper money. ” In this instance, the Mongols take it up a notch. The Mongols completely destroyed all of Azerbaijan (this was where the Mongols invaded).
Although there were no evidence of who set the building on fire, protesters were held responsible because of their interference on stopping the extinguish of the building and cheering on the fire. Many were arrested that night. On May 3, 1,000 Ohio National Guardsmen occupied the campus. Governor Rhodes held a press conference that provoked many protesters, calling them “un-american, revolutionaries set on destroying higher education in Ohio”. On May 4, General Robert Canterbury wanted to ban the afternoon protesting rally because he believed that the tension and violence from previous days would rise.
Likely the most effective way in dealing with the tension would be to find Locke’s purpose in presenting this philosophy. In a time of monarchies and principalities, Locke sought to combat the tyrannical rule which led to the suffering of the lower classes. He also sought to prove the illegitimacy of monarchies as evidenced in the First Treatise of Government. Using this idea combatting monarchical rules as Locke’s likely motives, it would follow that he prioritizes maximizing the happiness of the people’s life to save them from their formerly dreadful lives. The idea of liberty seems most likely to stem from the desire to curtail the abuses made by monarchies he deemed illegitimate.
From Ferguson to Tulsa to Baton Rouge, there have been countless cases of police brutality towards African-American men, women, and children. Murderers never receiving their justice, given paid time off and being cleared of charges. Families living in fear, left torn apart at the hands of people who took an oath to serve and protect. We see people of all races standing together in protest of something we know to be wrong, advocating for much needed social change. During the first three preseason games of the 2016 NFL season, Colin Kaepernick formerly quarterback of the San Francisco 49ers sat through the national anthem in protest of police brutality towards African American individuals.
The Anthem society in forcing of strict laws made it easy for everyone to lose their individuality. The in forcing of strict laws made it easy for people to lose their individuality because it starts to take away the uniqueness from an individual. Equality 7-2521 looking at Liberty 5-3000 stated “For men are forbidden to take notice of women are forbidden to take notice of men”(Rand, pg. 38). This is an example of strict laws because it shows how controlling the government is over the society.
Not only that, he thought that the way this term was exploited in society corrupted its meaning. Nietzsche claims that the idea of punishment relies heavily on how the agent has free will and chose to go against social conduct, which implies that the notion of free will was created as a ploy in order to create and foster guilt. Furthermore, he believes that a subject who acts under his or her supposed free will, and thus is responsible for some crime, is not really free as this subject or agent is restrained by social regulations. In other words, Nietzsche found that free will is a contrivance so that we are able to judge people guilty. Nonetheless, he argues that we cannot ultimately assign accountability because we are not free.
One of the major responses to the book came from Robert Nozick in his book, Anarchy, State, and Utopia. Nozick offers a libertarian response to Rawls. Libertarian notion of politics implies that there is a recognition of natural human rights and if these rights are deprived would be an immoral act. The examples of this natural rights are the rights to personal autonomy and the right to properties. The assumptions behind A Theory of Justice are essentially redistributive: That is, Rawls posits equal distribution of resources as the desirable state and then argues that inequality can be justified only by benefits for the least advantaged.
July 6th, 2011, Derek Williams collapsed and died in the back of a squad car. John Franke, a former Milwaukee circuit court judge, did not file charges in the case because he believes there was not enough evidence to prove guilt beyond a reasonable doubt. The community took to the streets to march against police brutality as well as the decision to not file charges against the officers. 75 to 100 people participated in a two-hour march that began at Wisconsin Avenue and 16th street and along streets in downtown Milwaukee. Marchers first went to the police department building and a man broke the window on the door of the building.
