Rahm Emanuel Fires Fall Guy in the Laquan McDonald Shooting The American people have expressed their outrage over the shooting of unarmed black teen Laquan McDonald by a white Chicago police officer. The outrage was not just that Officer Van Dyke shot McDonald 16 times as the teen was calmly walking down the street, but that the police department and city officials tried to cover the incident up. There was a police car dash cam that caught the whole incident on film, but the recording was hidden away for over a year. The nearby Burger King had its footage erased by fellow officers. And, before a civil suit was ever filed by McDonald 's family, the city offered them $5 million dollars if they agreed to not discuss the video, which they likely had not even seen.

Social disorganization theory emerged from the early school of criminology and focused on the characteristics of neighborhoods which indicate a lack of collective efficacy that prevents deviancy and criminal behaviors. These aspects are summarized as poverty, high residential mobility, deteriorating physical conditions, homogeneity of residents and other social ills present. A neighborhood watch group collaborates with a neighborhood in order to organize themselves against aspects of social disorganization (Bennett et al, 2006), by improving neighborhood conditions, running patrols and reporting suspicious behavior to the police. The goal of this polices that, is to create collective efficacy which causes reductions in criminal behavior. The issue with neighborhood watch is that is characterized as a "black-box" where many aspects of multiple criminological theories have been incorporated making it difficult to determine which concepts are effective for reducing crime.

Freedom Writers written and directed by Richard LaGravenese , based on the book, The Freedom Writers Diary, by The Freedom Writers with Erin Gruwell .“At 16, I’ve probably witnessed more dead bodies than a mortician,” says a Woodrow Wilson High School student, before matter-of-factly describing a life in which gang and domestic violence are everyday occurrences.1 Racism , that is, basing on racial, people are divided into different social classes. Racism not only be the reason to prejudice students, but also be the root of violence. As Eva says: “schools are like the city and the city is just like a person, all of them divided into separate sections, depending on tribes.” 2Shortly after the Rodney King riots in L.A., new school teacher Erin Gruwell (Hilary Swank) wants to experience the difficult freshman class of Wilson High School, made up of some ethnic groups’ kids that the system has given up on. The optimistic young teacher Erin comes up with her confidence to try her best to get the kids to learn more about themselves and the world around them, finding the meaning of their lives in journals, while fighting with fellow teachers and the school principal about her techniques.

Several days later the Little Rock nine “returned back to the school, and entered through the side door so they can avoid the crowd of rowdy students and the press.” That same day they were found by more students whom “violently attacked them and innocent bystanders.” In 1958 the first African American, Ernest Green, graduated Little Rock Central High School, and the governor got “reelected and shut down all schools” in Little Rock, Arkansas because he did not want to integrate the schools of Little Rock, Arkansas. The legacy of The Little Rock Nine has set the bar for African American students who has to fight for equality at predominantly whites schools today. The schools cannot be legally segregated, but they can enforce their own rules to justify the way African Americans students present themselves. If an African American student attended school or class with an Afro, Dread Locks, or
The Nazi’s sent a film crew to the Warsaw ghetto where they would film the Jews in their everyday lives most of the time being staged. They filmed from the very weak and poor to the wealthier Jewish people. It is easy to think of why the Germans would film the Jews in luxurious settings, to promote and show that the ghettos are good places and the Jews in the ghettos are living well. But why would they film the extreme poverty and state of the buildings and living conditions when they were so poor. It is hard for me to watch as most people that were being filmed were clearing starving and often close to death.

The events that happened soon after arguably changed the lives of Ferguson citizens forever. Ferguson citizens was justified in their response due to the death of Mike Brown, police brutality, and the results of the indictment. The main cause of the riots that took place in Ferguson is the fact that Mike Brown was brutally gunned down by a white police office while he was unarmed and hands up.
