This is what started the Blue Lives Matter movement, a movement for police officers to be protected. Due to a spike in police deaths the government imposed harsher laws against assaulting, harming, or killing a police officers. The BLM community is concerned because they feel like they are taking a step backwards in the relationships between the community and its people with the local police officers. Lots of people are saying that the movement is unjust because they believe that “All Lives Matter,” but the movement is just simply pointing out that African Americans are being wrongfully targeted and killed. The movement is trying to prove that all of our lives should be equal not one life is better than the

Hall case, Officers Joseph Thomas Brown and James Larry Durden are young police officers, still in their eighteen-month probationary period. They shoot and kill A.C. Hall after claiming they ordered him to halt, then observed him drawing a weapon. While particular actions of the officers raise questions about Macon Police Department protocol and training, a troubling lack of justice for A.C. Hall is evident when the officers are charged with the murder, yet neither is indicted by a grand jury. The combination of black disenfranchisement and mediocre professional standards within Southern police forces allowed for police officers to become a kind of sanctioned white violence, where police could step “far outside of normal policy activity” to subjectively punish black people for any perceived misconduct. Policemen played this role even when not wearing their uniforms – in The South and the Nation, Pat Waters references the how police were often leaders of lynch mobs and other extra-legal
Kelley, is an opinion essay about the treatment of “people of color” by United States law enforcement, in a historical and modern sense. This essay was very eye opening to me personally, because I have been somewhat sheltered to this in school and at home. The author’s experience showed me how awful police treatment can be, even if no crime was committed. The historical perspective of the essay showed me that we as a nation have progressed, in terms of race relations, but we still have a long way to go. The essay often discusses how bad things were in the south, which made me think about my family history, coming from a small town in the southeast corner of Tennessee.
Second, Katzmann centered on the bullets... The third line of the prosecution’s case was ‘consciousness of guilt’” (Aiuto 5). Prosecution planned to persuade Sacco and Vanzetti’s guilt by placing them on the scene of the crime, proving that the bullets were fired from their weapons, and that they acted guilty. Strangely enough, only one of the eleven witness actually saw the shooting, and even the one ducked for cover once it began.
She talks about all the important reasons why we need gun control and why it is an issue as well. One eye-popping statistic is that a majority of the worst acts of violence dealing with a gun are by people who have never actually violated the law in America before. People say that such violent gun acts are by criminals anyway. So putting a ban on all guns from law bidding citizens would have no real effect. However, it would be good if they showed a statistical chart on all the people who committed violent guns acts and break it down to if they were criminals before or if it was their first offense.
Some deserve it because they non-repentance killers or to be serial killers while other should not deserve it because of the circumstances required them. Juveniles who killed people without any mercy should be treated as an adult and be given Juvenile Life Without Parole(JLWOP). For example, the murderer of Jennifer Jenkins’ pregnant sister and her husband. Jennifer describes, “[Jenkins’s Sister] begged for the life of her unborn child as [the killer] shot her. He reported to a friend, who testified at his trial, about his ‘thrill kill’ that he just wanted to ‘see what it would feel like to shoot someone’”(Jenkins).
They will be asked questions about is it about the ratings is that why the always make sure to broadcast only shootings most of the time when it deals with African Americans. City of Sherwood Chief Jim Bedwell will be interview on his thoughts of racial shootings.

IS THE GUN THE NEW NOOSE? Introduction Charles Martin, William Steen, Mack Segars, Lacquan McDonald, Oscar Grant, and Corey Jones are all black, and all have either been killed by the noose of a lynch mob or the gun of a police officer.

Many officers use racial profiling to an excessive degree and use it as their defense for killing a defenseless African American. According to mic.com, white officers kill black suspects twice a week in the United States. It is the unfortunate truth that black people are more likely to be killed by the police than any other race. In order to properly train law enforcements, they must be taught to not discriminate against someone because of their skin color. Killing someone based off their race is a terrible way of
Racial profiling is the prejudicial practice by law enforcement of singling out individuals for suspicion of a crime based on the persons ethnicity, religion, or origin. Many cases over racial profiling have ended with the police accused of the act being acquitted for their crimes. An officer from Maryland received no punishment for releasing a police dog on multiple unarmed Mexican immigrants ( ACLU, 2017). This has been a problem in the United States for centuries. During the 19th and early 20th centuries southern Sheriffs sat by while the Ku Klux Klan harassed African Americans (ACLU, 2017).
