This is what started the Blue Lives Matter movement, a movement for police officers to be protected. Due to a spike in police deaths the government imposed harsher laws against assaulting, harming, or killing a police officers. The BLM community is concerned because they feel like they are taking a step backwards in the relationships between the community and its people with the local police officers. Lots of people are saying that the movement is unjust because they believe that “All Lives Matter,” but the movement is just simply pointing out that African Americans are being wrongfully targeted and killed. The movement is trying to prove that all of our lives should be equal not one life is better than the
There is no proof of any crime, so there should not have been a guilty verdict. The Ewells could have been lying because most likely Mayella tempted Tom. Back then if you were involved with a colored person you were disgraced by the whole town. Mayella could have been trying to cover this up and get Tom arrested so he wouldn't be able to tell anyone. The jury convicted Tom Robinson because he was colored and back then white people believed they had to stick together against the colored people.
My reflection after reading Chapter 12 is that I form the idea that when people in a society are not educated it increases the risks of crime. Crime is defined as any act that is against the law. The Court system is responsible for deciding which crimes should be considered worth punishing for. As we look at the two different types of crimes such as mala in se and mala prohibita. Mala in se is considered to be “inherently evil” meaning such as robbery, murder, rape, etc that people in society have decided that should be banned due to its evil inhuman nature.
Demby was scared and afraid that he decided not to obey the slave owner because he thought that by giving up his body to the master could get him into a greater torture, thus, he decided to go against his master’s order. While, the master shot Demby because he feared that Demby would pose a bad example to the other slaves. Same goes to the Grant’s case, the police officer shot Grant because he feared that Grant was going to hurt the crowds in the BART Train Station. Thereby, fear as the main reason in both cases reflects the characteristic of slavery. In the other hand, black people as a victim
Once failing to act them to the society’s reaction that seem as deviant. For instance, murder is considered as deviant because it would bring disorder to social order because it cause a threat to the innocent people and an unrestrained action would let individual feels unsafe in their workplace, on to the street and even stay in the home (Larsen, 2013). Murder is violated to that particular legal norm and seems as deviant (Hunt & Colandar, 2011). The murderer breaks the law of constitution assault an unacceptable and intolerant action to the society so it considers as against a basic right, especially civil right. We do not have a right to harm other whether it is in intended or unintended behave.
New York Police Officers feel no commitment in having to treat any black or Hispanic with respect because of their race. The generic debate made by Bob Herbert in his work, Jim Crow Policing, is that stops are a representation of cops being racist and harassers as well. More precisely Herbert feuds that racial profiling has become a tool of harassment. Herbert states, “Rather than a legitimate crime-fighting tool, these stops are a despicable racially oriented tool of harassment”(NY Times Herbert). In the passage, Herbert is specifying that blacks and Hispanics were commonly stopped and frisked for their race.
Moreover, Gangs are a bad influence towards people. Some people look towards gang members. Gang members should not be role models towards people because they do criminal activities. We should hire more policemen because it 's too many death behind gang
Why would Tom Robinson be labeled as a rapist right away without strong proofs of his innocence? The reason why he is accused of rape and considered guilty is because he is an African-American and that instantly labels him as a criminal or a murderer. The people in Maycomb also labels Atticus Finch as a threat to Maycomb town and they call him a “nigger-lover” just because he is defending Tom Robinson and for being his lawyer on the court. Judging people by just seeing them for the first time without knowing the person is just not the right way to criticize a person. It could also be referred to rating a book by judging its cover without reading the inside of a book.
¨We reserve the death penalty in the United States for the most heinous murders and the most brutal and conscienceless murderers.” I can see why the Supreme Court doesn 't want these people in prison, because they might kill somebody in prison, or if they get bailed out they wouldn 't learn their lesson and do what they were doing AGAIN. ¨We have the responsibility to punish those who deserve it, but only to the degree they deserve it.¨ I can also see why they think people deserve it for their horrible actions, they believe that since they did some outrageous murder, or a really bad crime they deserve to die. ¨"Whatever your feelings are toward the death penalty, one thing most people will never know is the pain experienced when a family member, or in my case, family members are brutally tortured and murdered.¨ This is saying that families go through a lot when a murderer kills one of their loved ones, and the family wants that person executed. Personally, the death penalty in my eyes can help families feel like they 've got justice, and make them feel like they did something for the loved one that was
The history of what we call racism which is the discrimination of other groups on the basis of their different descent begins in the Early Modern Period. This thing called racism makes people feel like this is not where they belong and nobody should feel like that.Everybody say racism will end but its not ending due to all the events that have occurred now in this world.there's a lot of situations that people might think that it's never going to end.I will get more into details into the writing. There's situations that cops are killing people that will never end racism. Due to the michael brown situation and he never got justice for his death.when a cop kill a black person there's a lot of reasons on why a black man deserve to die.The cop who killed brown says that brown was armed but once he shot brown he was not armed he was actually unarmed.That situation has a lot to do with
