Police have killed 780 people in the year of 2016 alone. Black lives Matters is a way that empowers black youth and raise awareness. Why has there been 196 police killings in the year of 2016 (killedbypolice.net)? The Polices are trying to justify this number by saying it is as low as it has ever been but in the year of 2014 there was 461 deaths(killedbypolice.net). The media has not express the fact that this has been going on for nearly 2 decades from Rodney King being one of the first realization to America.
I found lists of his battles and how he came out victorious. It also gave me a little image of how the war looked afterwards. It was a basic overview of everything I needed to know about Custer. The author of this article is Stewart Sifakis. Sifakis is very well qualified due to several books he has written on the Civil War.
They should understand the consequences the events had on our country. Lastly, be knowledgeable enough of the techniques used and prepared to prevent something like this from ever happening again. Historians should interpret and disperse the first-hand accounts that are compiled into the book 100 Years of Lynchings, to help Americans understand exactly what happened from 1865 to the late 1900s. These accounts are written from a variety of stand points, allowing for a wide array of opinions. The majority of the
A Stanford study done in Oakland in 2015 showed that of all people handcuffed but not arrested in a 13 month period, 2890 of them were African American, and only 193 whites were cuffed. Clearly there is a racial bias in many police forces across the country that needs to be acknowledged and the national anthem words will not be true until that
I believe Miranda Rights are a beneficial tool for all American citizens; therefore, arresting officers should continue to read the Miranda Rights to those that they arrest. Every person has heard the phrase "Miranda Rights", whether or not that be when taking a law class, or perhaps across particular experience with their use. What do these two words really truly mean? Where did they come from and how do they influence to an individual's everyday life? America is a great place with all its laws to secure people and anyone that wants to come into the country.
The author Tex G. Hall is explaining Native American team sports mascots are racist. He is testifying for many other people as well. He makes a very sensible are you and uses the motion and great facts facts. The way his argument is structured is very engaging. He first off thanks many people for bringing this controversy to everyone 's attention.
The study concluded that there was a racial disparity in the sentencing process. The biggest disparity that was found was when a death penalty case involved a white victim and a black defendant. After reviewing the death penalty cases, there was an indication that “twenty-two percent of cases received the death penalty when a black defendant and white victim were involved….compared to only three percent when there was a black victim and white defendant involved.” The study broke this data down further and looked at the percentages of when a prosecutor seeks the death penalty. The study found that prosecutors sought the death penalty in “seventy percent of cases that involved white victims and black defendants and only nineteen percent when the roles were reversed.” However, despite all of the racial disparities found, there was one conclusion that was quite surprising and contradicting. The figures from the cases reviewed suggested that there is a reverse racial disparity in the sentencing process.
For example, in A Red Record, Wells shows the records of 1894 and how 132 people were executed under United States law while 197 people were lynched and killed due to mobs without being able to defend themselves. Ida B. used lynching statistics of the time to show the sheer number of people who were lynched and just how common the problem was. These statistics showed how
Reid, 36 was shot seven times when pulled over for not coming to a complete stop at a stop sign, resulting in his death. Verdict for the two police officers: No indictment. Police are not being held accountable for their wrongful crimes and abuse of authority towards blacks. According to Mapping Police Violence, only 3 out of the 210 killings of unarmed black people resulted in officers being charged with a crime. This shows justice is not being served for people of
When compared statistically, the ratio of a black unarmed civilian being killed by the police is 3.49 times higher than that of a white (Makarechi, 2016). In Weitzer and Tuch?s research book, ?Race and Policing in America: Conflict and Reform,? they explain that such a relationship on policing and racial inequality is not explainable at the local level, but the data for racial biases is indeed shocking in the case of police shootings. It?s even more common at local crime scenes. The relationship of neighborhoods with their police can be dependent on the socioeconomic status of the community in which they reside.
Unfair profiling and the use of lethal force is causing war in the world among us. 939 people dead at the hands of police. 865 people were either unarmed, mentally ill, or of color. A number of people have been brutally shot and killed by law enforcement in the year 2016 so far, reaching 776 total, and the year is not over yet. Between 1999-2016 there were more white victims than black killed by law enforcement , however, blacks only make up 12% of the population.
In 2011, African Americans made up 25% of New York’s entire population, however, documents reveal that African Americans were the alleged suspects of 53% of all Stop-and-Frisk procedures. Similarly, Hispanics made up 29% of New York’s population, yet they were the victims of 34% of the NYPD’s Stop-and-Frisk Law. In the same year, Caucasian New Yorkers made up at least 33% of the state’s population, yet only a mere 9% were stopped and frisked by policemen (Flatow…”Ten). Prominent NYPD official, Chief Esposito, and defenders of the Stop-and-Frisk refute with the claim that “those who fit the general race, gender, and age profile of… criminal suspects… should be particularly targeted for stops”; they state that African Americans and Hispanics are rightfully and legally the targets of the Stop-and-Frisk (Flatow…”Five). This irrational behavior imparts how quick NYPD officers are to base their stops on race alone.
