The bias and bigotry alive in two communities propelled forward the conviction of two guilt free individuals. There was never any significant correlation between Tom Robinson and Steven Avery, that is until Steven Avery was accused and sentenced for a crime he did not commit; much like the famous character Tom Robinson from Harper Lee’s To Kill a Mockingbird. The foundation of such trials, despite baring significant faults, proved strong enough to condemn. Although the Tom Robinson case and the Steven Avery case possess striking differences their resemblances are exceedingly pronounced.
The criminal justice system failed Steven Avery. He was a poor man, that was starting to rebuild his life, after being exonerated. He was very close to enjoying life, until he was implicated in the murder of Teresa Halbach. I think Steven Avery was framed and wrongfully convicted. The police fabricated the whole thing, the blood in the garage, the bones in the pit, and the car keys in Steven Avery’s bedroom, with no DNA match to the victim.
The City of Bell scandal involves misappropriation of public funds in Bell, California, one of the poorest cities in Los Angeles County and a small blue collar community, over a period of several years in the late 2000s. In July 2010, two Los Angeles Times reporters, Jeff Gottlieb and Ruben Vives, wrote an investigative piece on possible malfeasance in the neighboring city of Maywood, California. In their exposé, they reveal that Bell city officials are receiving salaries that are reportedly the highest in the nation.

The Supreme Court case, Rochin v. California, was a case that had shocked the conscience. The brutality and laziness of the police left the petitioner, Richard Rochin, violated of his fourth, fifth, and fourteenth amendments. The ignorance of unreasonable search, self-incrimination, and due process led this case to be a landmark of police work and processes paralleling with the rights of the Constitution. On July 1st, 1949, three Los Angeles police officers entered Richard Rochin’s residence after a tip came through their police hotline.
In Ramon “Tiangus” Perez personal essay the“The Fender-Bender” he writes about two distinct characters, An Anglo driver and a Chicano cop; although they both express the emotion anger and both want to resolve the Fender-bender, the Chicano marks their differences in personalities as he is a prejudice and is wicked as compared to the reasonable and non prejudice.

As the Anglo gets out to see the damage on the van he directs his anger towards Perez and asks him for his license, in which Perez responds with he doesn't have it. His reaction, as stated by Perez, “He scratches his head. He is breathing heavily with fury” (176).
First, the technology component of the policy is connected with my studies at Shippensburg University. I want to be apart of the technology creation process and use my software skills to help it reach its maximum potential. Also, being from Philadelphia, I know what people in crime filled communities need in order to improve them. Secondly, the crime in cities and the actions of police officers has driven me to this policy. The Mike Brown case is a prime example.
A History of Closed Minded People and a Lack of Digging Deeper "You never really understand a person until you consider things from his point of view - until you climb into his skin and walk around in it." - Atticus Finch, Chapter 3 of To Kill a Mockingbird. We have all been taught, as our first essential lesson as children, that we as human beings should “treat others the way we want to be treated,” because you never know what their life is like outside of the short time of day that you see them. The action of listening and actually hearing someone else's point of view can give a person on the outside an idea of that person’s life, beliefs, and ideas, before jumping to conclusions and judging someone. History has shown that people can tend to only believe their beliefs and be closed minded toward new, different ideas that go against what they believe.
Law enforcement and citizens each have their own explanation and definition what excessive force is and how it should be handled. There are different ways how law enforcement uses their excessive force which could have been different in the past from now.

Excessive force is a current issue that needs to be reduced to justify every case correctly and avoid this hot controversy. All individuals in society have their own definitions and point of views on what excessive force is and how it should be handled.
Consider with me for a moment that you have been wrongfully convicted or accused of a crime. From the first arrest to the closing of those cell bars you have tried your best to prove your innocence but you weren’t able to and felt that no one would know the truth. You felt helpless because no one would listen let alone believe you. Every night you would lay in the cell hoping that someone would soon realize you are innocent of the accused crimes and do not deserve to be incarcerated. Eventually, you were exonerated maybe days, weeks, months, or years after the initial incarceration; no matter the length of time the damage is still done both mentally and physically.
