Individualistic suicide is the result of a person having poor links to social backgrounds. Single, divorced, childless and widowed people were found to be more likely to commit suicide than those who were married or had children. Individualistic suicide cases were found among religious societies. Durkheim studied that the rate of suicide is not as high among Catholics and Jews as among Protestants. This is due to Protestantism allowing “free inquiry” to a larger extent than Judaism or Catholicism.
It was then found that “Half the study participants had depression serious enough to warrant further assessment. A quarter reported moderate to severe anxiety. Those rates are higher than those of the general public and other minority groups, says Amer, citing ongoing racial profiling, discrimination and other stressors unique to Arabs as causes” (Clay 2011). And despite the Arab-Americans receiving death threats from strangers, Clay also reports, "I saw articles online where people were saying if they are depressed, that means they 're crazy and shouldn 't even be living in this country." However, muslims were not the only ones affected by Religious Hate Crimes.
Females are twice as likely to attempting suicide than males while males are four times more likely to attempting suicide and more chance of dying. Women are more likely than men to attempt suicide by poisoning. It’s between the ages of 45 and 64, and for men is at the rate that occurs at the ages 75 and up. Suicide is the second leading cause of death for young people between the ages of 15 to 34. It appears that among the racial and ethnic groups,
Moreover it is shown that in many cases criminals are executed while there are reasonable doubts in their convictions and some have avoided execution by just a few hours before being exonerated. Another issue that was discussed is the inequality of death penalty in practice. There have been serious issues with racial discrimination. For reference in cases with white victims and black defendants convictions occurred twenty two percent of the time while with black victims and white defendants with percentage dropped to a measly three
States that do not use Capital Punishment usually have a lower murder rate than states that do. The South, where 80 percent of all executions take place, has a higher murder rate than the North. People wouldn't want to go to prison where anything can happen. The inmates at prison hate it because they basically have no life in prison. The death penalty makes society more dangerous by further increasing violence through the brutalization effect.
and while race issues are still prevalent they have become better. Segregation is no longer widespread and common and while it can still happen it is usually unintentional. Criminal justice is the “new” way to target the minority races and segregate them from the white. Blacks are sentenced to 10% longer sentences than their white counterparts based on the same crime. 12.6% of the U.S. population is African American, but in prison they make up 37.1% of the inmate population.
4.1) HEALTH PROBLEMS: 4.1.1) Heart Diseases The cause of the heart diseases can came from many factors. Sometimes the danger factor is family history. Those with parents or close relatives with heart disease are more likely to develop it themselves. Based in experiment of scientist, women do have a lowest risk of heart attack than 5 from 6 Men, and they have attacks earlier in life. Even after menopause, the rate of men’s death from heart disease is the highest than women’s even it increase every year.
Hannah Hoyland Hour 3 March 1st Mr.Stanley Quit denying our basic rights! Researchers have found that attempted suicide rates and suicidal ideation among lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, and questioning youth is comparatively higher than among the general population.LGBT teens and young adults have one of the highest rates of suicide attempts. According to some groups, this is linked to heterocentric cultures and institutionalised homophobia in some cases, including the use of rights and protections for LGBT people as a political wedge issue like in the contemporary efforts to halt legalising same-sex marriages. Depression and drug use among LGBT people have both been shown to
Social phenomena include all behavior, which influences or are influenced by organisms sufficiently alive to respond to one another (Wikipedia). The activities characterizing a society determine the beliefs, desires and motives of its individual members. Even a socially accepted behavior trend defines the behavior patterns of the individuals that function in that particular society. Durkheim views suicide as sociological phenomena and not solely as an individual’s reality, establishing its validity as a social fact. The main factor that propels Durkheim’s study of society is the belief that every sociological phenomenon is unique and warrants a different kind of study that emphasizes depth over myopic interpretations.
There are two main sociological strands that approach the issue of suicide, which are the Interpretivist approach and the Positivist approach, which differ tremendously in their theories on the subject of suicide. One of the most famous positivists who studied suicide is Emile Durkheim (1952), he saw suicide as a social fact, as did other positivist sociologists, which meant that suicide was able to be studied scientifically. In his study, Durkheim (1952) used already available statistics about suicide in order to create a theory on how individuals who are thinking of/or committing suicide, and also creating a social explanation for these actions. Durkheim’s study shows the possibilities for further empirical research that would allow for further development in sociology, followed by his functionalism and positivism. From Durkheim’s predecessors, Comte and Spencer, it is clear, that his work was a biological analogy, when
