The third time they went to march, they won Federal Protection and they successfully marched for their cause.

This guy wants to talk about it, but he can’t….” Bowker feels that he has lost a sense of purpose because of the war; he no longer has drive or ambition and this can be contributed to the horrific images and situations he experienced during the war. For O’ Brien, the war signified the death of his pride. He did not want to go to the war at first, but because of outside influences and the fear of possible consequences, he chose to go despite his beliefs. For these soldiers, death happens to more than just physical
In 2012, Trayvon Martin was walking home, unarmed, with his hood up and his hands in his pockets. Local neighborhood watch volunteer, George Zimmerman, saw him as a “threat” and took it upon himself to use lethal force against him. Campaign Zero reported that in 2014 “police killed at least 253 unarmed people and 91 people who were stopped for mere traffic violations”. The police brutality continues to escalate creating despair within the community. Martin’s case, along with Michael Brown’s death in Ferguson and the massacre at the Emanuel A.M.E. church in Charleston, became catalysts for the Black Lives matter Movement.
Picket lines making there way to the courthouse and others making there way to the courthouse steps. The cops stood in front of court house with there weapons and buses waited to take people to jail.

On June 23, 1963, Dr. Martin Luther King gave speech at the Great March in Detroit, where 200,000 Detroiters protested segregation in housing. Auto factories had brought African American people from the southern US in large numbers to Detroit and other Michigan cities, yet their neighborhoods had increasingly grown separate, and rarely equal. A writer called Waistline reminded readers of the June 2013 Peoples ' Tribune that the fatal shooting of prostitute Cynthia Scott, shot in the back that year by Detroit Police Officer Spicer who was not brought to trail, further angered the black community. At the Great March, Dr. King 's speech was a version of the "I Have a Dream," later given in the August 1963 March on Washington. The imagery
Alton Sterling would be another perfect example of police brutality against the African race. Mr. Sterling was selling cds outside of a store and a homeless man approached him asking him for money he showed his REGISTRATED gun and said leave me alone. The police arrived and took Mr. Sterling to the ground and had him restrained when they said he reached for his gun then the police office shot him in the chest. I feel as if everyone was to come together as a community in the places they live then we could stop this issue sooner than later.

Social justice warriors even smashed windows and stole from a local Radio Shack while fighting for their cause; trash cans were set on fire in the process as well. "I am very unhappy with the violence. What people in Berkeley are generally in favor of the issues involved and they are very sympathetic with the people in Ferguson and people in New York.

This shows how not all protests are executed as peacefully as the general public
