Arresting communication: A Life Saving Tool Often funny, sometimes heartbreaking, and always informative, Jim Glennon’s book Arresting Communication introduces the reader to the concept of both verbal and non-verbal communication in the world of law enforcement. His down to earth approach makes it easy for a broad range of readers to understand these concepts. Anecdotal stories also help drive home the message that proper communication is key to keeping both a law enforcement officer and those interacting with them safe. The book is incredibly informative as much of this information likely will not be covered in a classroom or in a police academy, at least not as in depth as this book anyway. Early in chapter 1 of the book, Glennon states that 97% of arrests are made without the situation devolving to violence.
The big picture is that these three people are crucial to epidemics because of their abilities, but if Connectors are not as crucial as they used to be, there is now a whole different argument. Gladwell’s argument is that Mavens give news to Connectors who then share the news with everyone. Since Watts has disproved that connectors are crucial in creating epidemics, there is only the Mavens and the Salespeople. There is no need for Connectors because of new technology, but there is still need for Mavens because of their knowledge, and Salespeople because of their persuasion. There is still a need for Connectors when it comes to some things.
strengthens his credibility and that of the non-violent direct action protesters. He does this by describing the qualities of the people involved in the non-violent movements, namely the ability not to retaliate against violence. Second, the ethos of the movement is shown through justifying their need to act. “Mindful of the difficulties involved, we decided to undertake a process of self-purification. We began a series of workshops on non-violence, and we repeatedly asked ourselves: “Are you able to accept blows without retaliating?” “Are you able to endure the ordeal of jail?” In this example, King establishes credibility for himself and the direct action plan as a whole by stating that he and his associates partook in a series of workshops, he shows that they are willing and able to carry out the plan without the use of violence.
This is an important concept because it explains that officers should not follow society and pressure from the public and media but follow the laws that our country. This a good thing to have when dealing with persuasive criminals and individuals. Both officers and civilians benefit from this principle because it protects both parties. Officers also need to know the laws, so they can stay away form trouble and not be deceived by public persuasion. This is a good thing to have in America today, because many criminals will say anything to get out of punishment.
At the beginning of Anthem Equality has changed his mind about a lot of things in the beginning of the story. Equality got picked to be a street sweeper by the government, but he really wanted to be a scholar but couldn’t because of the government. Equality had a rough life. Well he was a street sweeper but he was smart enough to be a scholar the government did not think he was. In the book anthem by ayn rand Equality was not good for any body or anything at the beginning he had a rough start to his life.
I will always be grateful to the Bonnie & Clyde Miniseries I found on Netflix for starting my research into the gang. Not only have I learned basic lessons like 'don 't steal cars ' or 'don 't shoot at cops ', but it has also taught me more important things that some people tend to forget easily. Family is the most important thing in this world and while they may end up indirectly causing your demise, they 'll protect you no matter what until then. Loyalty is immensely important and should never be overlooked. Grudges are not good and will only end up hurting you.
Samantha used pathos in response to the first Harvard Debater who proceeded to talk about how civil disobedience isn 't moral just because it happens to be nonviolent. He continues to talk about how violence can be moral to a certain extent such as in protecting your country. Samantha believes otherwise, as she again uses Gandhi to support the logic behind her point of view. As she says, “Gandhi believes one must always act with love and respect for one’s opponents” (Washington) as Samantha continues with a joke saying, “even if they are Harvard debaters” (Washington). By using a joke Samantha gains the crowd 's attention and they start to like her a bit more, also using words like love and respects towards others over blood and violence.
I feel that there is no escape from racial profiling especially in these tense times. Bob Herbert’s article, “Jim Crow Policing” Publishes in the New York Times on February 2, 2010, states that “The New York City Police Department needs to be restrained”, and I believe that his evidence shows this to be true. The author goes on showing statistic after statistic about the type of people that are stopped by the NYPD and more importantly their nationality. Bob Herbert is not writing this article to bash the NYPD, but to educate the people of America that although we may think racism and humiliation is gone, in New York it is still very prevalent. By appealing to your sense of logic with the statistic that “contraband, which usually means drugs, was found in only 1.6 percent of stops on black New Yorkers, 1.5 percent of Hispanics, but white New Yorkers stopped far less frequently were found with 2.2 percent of contraband on stops.” the evidence is undeniable.
They all have each other back when they want a new law to be put in place they have each other’s back. Departments would do what the other committees want to get the law pass and the other committees would do it for the departments in return. Interests groups has a great influence on the public eye. With campaigning, surveys, and commercial they give the people what they want them to see. Sometimes this is good but sometimes they’re bad as well and the people eye can go along with a new police but not knowing there’s a twist to it.
Before coming to Mars Hill University, I had no idea what human trafficking was, or at least I do not recall any such memory or terminology like this. Although, I do remember seeing something like this on a T.V. show but, I did not know it was human trafficking. This is part of the problem, people do not know what it is. I live in Lakeland, Florida.
These are fabulous steps, however they are not a panacea. More must be done to execute new advancements in policing and different parts of the equity framework that will enhance police responsibility and diminish the extent to which the harshest parts of criminal equity fall excessively on groups of shading. The United States needs to grasp a more brilliant way to deal with criminal equity that perceives that the affinity to concentrate on race is not the response to make safe groups. The inability to guarantee that our legal and legitimate frameworks treat all Americans just as has isolated an excess of our groups. We must offer voice to the honest to goodness and across the board worries about trust in the criminal equity process.
When I did start finding my strength, pride and courage and started to man up, taking personal responsibility for my behaviour, only then was I handed the full extent of the law. Even while in prison, while trying to stand up for not only my rights, but also the rights of our people, I was dealt with harshly and spent a lot of time in management units being very closely watched. They didn’t like to see a brother doing the right thing. After all, it even goes against what most of them were taught about our mob. But even in bad times, my spirit was growing and over time, they started to say that this time I wasn’t going to give up or myself like I did so many times in the past.
I was definitely surprised by a lot in this memoir. To be honest, at first the entire concept of this story surprised me. I come from a mediocre sized town outside of Boston, in Canton, Massachusetts. I have been a great deal of places for only being 21 years old, but I cannot say that I have witnessed or seen anything relating to transgender’s. So you could say that this topic before this course was a bit taboo to me.
