The zero-tolerance policy was implemented to update the police’s discretion of what to stop and to keep crime down. The source has limitations because it strictly gives the background of the history of policing strategies to reducing crime. Jeffrey Rosen uses former Mayor Giuliani’s quotes and worked closely with transit-police authority. I would be able to use quotes from this article because it relates to my topic, being in New York and dealing with stop and frisk. My final questions for Rosen would include, why did he not mention more about these policing strategies tie in with Supreme Court cases?
The author shows this with all of the feelings, facts and descriptions he uses. This book is very important because it teaches the reader things they didn’t know well or proves to them that they are wrong if they believed that the Holocaust was not harmful. No one had the right to treat these people in that way and no one has the right to ban this book because this will be censorship. Night also shows the truth about the Holocaust and teaches us that this period in history should be prevented from happening
For example, When Michael Brown was killed there was a several marches around the country they all got national attention. In Martin Luther King’s speech he argues that people should stick to using non-violence instead of using violence to solving your problems: “So in the days ahead let us not sink into the quicksands of violence; rather let us stand on the high ground of love and non-injury.” The idea that we should use non-violence instead of using violence is better because if you start to use violence people are going to say they want change but they are harming our city 's, we cannot advocate violence because we want change to happen and we don 't want more people getting hurt. Indeed we should use non-violence because we will get national attention. Ultimately non-violence protests are better than violent protests because if we want to change something from happening we have to be civilized americans and not make things
For instance, imagine that you still cannot be promoted in your jobs even you are brilliant at it, or you are being mocked and ignored at school because of the color of your skins, religions or disabilities. You will feel unjust, grief and indignant, but there is no way for you to revolt. What’s more, these experiences could not only hurt one’s physical health but also mental health, even could cause a lifelong impact. Unfortunately, the sad truth are happening all over the world everyday. However, nobody is born to discriminate others,
Guns don’t kill people. People kill people. Many believe this, but columnist Nicholas Kristof, author of “Our Blind Spot about Guns,” published in 2014 in the New York Times, disagrees. A rhetorical analysis should consist of: logos, pathos, and ethos. Kristof’s use of logos is strong due to the amount of facts and statistics he offers to his audience, but he fails to strongly use pathos and ethos, due to the lack of these elements Kristof’s argument is weakened.
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.
Near the end of the beginning King says “There will be neither rest nor tranquility in America until the Negro is granted his citizenship rights”(King 2). This citation shows how King and all other African Americans will not stop fighting for equal rights until they get their rights. I can surmise that this citation really doesn 't mean that he won 't sleep but not stop protesting and speaking out to end all forms of racism. To continue, King also says that we must stop racism now and for good. In the beginning of the speech he says “We have also come to this hallowed spot to remind America of the fierce urgency of now”(King 2).
It’s time to #TakeAKnee “We never get rid of hate by meeting hate with hate; we get rid of an enemy, by getting rid of enmity. By its very nature hate destroys and tears down.” Dr. Martin Luther King stated that the purpose of non-violent protest was not to get revenge but to change the heart of the enemy. Over the past couple of years America has begun to acknowledge police brutality as a serious problem. While state-sanctioned violence towards individuals of varying races of color is not new, the documentation through dash-cams and civilian cellphone footage has brought the brutality to light. From Ferguson to Tulsa to Baton Rouge, there have been countless cases of police brutality towards African-American men, women, and children.
Curfew is a citywide order that keeps people homebound inside their homes or will face arrest. This system of keeping people out of public has proved to unuseful and outdated. According to Kenneth Adams, a criminal justice professor at the University of Central Florida, “The most useful aspect of a curfew is it gives an impression that the police are doing something” but they are not really doing anything useful other than using our tax money. Many people believe that curfew helps society keep things in order. The truth of the matter is it does the opposite and needs to be banned.
Stop and Frisk Stop and Frisk, the tactic that has been going on for only for short time, yet there seems to be racial tension already. But is this new information actually true or is it just good policing? According to Heather Mac Donald from the Manhattan Institute, says “what looks like racial profiling might just be good policing”. However according to Ranjana Natarajan from the Washington post “it’s clear that two issues need to be addressed: racial profiling and police use of excessive force.” Unfortunately we cannot have both ways. Arguments: One of the most convincing arguments is that it drastically decreases crime rates according to the statistics.
However, Anderson refuses to neglect the truth: they are the villains. Slamming any pre-existing admirable outlook readers may have had, Anderson inquires, based on his observations, “the authorities, particularly the police, paid scant attention and sometimes abused the victims themselves” (Anderson, 27). Philadelphia is notorious for its high crime rate, marking the police as almost a necessity to the function of everyday life. However, due to the mistreatment of citizens, people began to refer to the police as “ineffective” and “unworthy of trust.” The safeness of an area is key to the number of individuals using that public space, ultimately deeming the police a negative factor. In addition to the negative safety element, policemen also partake in plain acts of racism.
The first group consisted of offenders who participated in an MMT program while incarcerated. The Non-MMT group consisted of offenders that had at least one positive urinalysis test that contained traces of opiates and who were classified as having a drug addiction. The study found that those who participated in the MMT program reoffended at a lower rate rather than those who did not participate in MMT. Non-MMT offenders were more likely to receive a violation to abstain from alcohol at 9% versus MMT participants at 2%. The readmission rate was 29% for MMT participants compared to 44% for Non-MMT offenders.
Police officers patrolling the area assumed he was breaking into the residence and arrested him. (Racial Profiling) Even though we are a very open society, many people are still profiled just because of their race at many shopping centers, airport, by police and in many other situation and many other people. Some people believe racial profiling does not exist anymore. They are wrong because racial profiling has become more common since the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001, especially toward Arabs and Muslims. (Racial Profiling) 9/11 was a day in history that nobody could forget but even with this we should not use racial profiling as a way of security.
In England, the mutual pledge system emerged in which citizens would report crime to the village’s tythingman, similar to today’s police, to receive monetary rewards. Today, this is certainly not the case. Yes, it is still recommended and expected of American citizens to report crime if they witness it, but rewards are not given as a sort of bribe to ensure crime does not take place. Meanwhile, the night watch system emerged in which citizens would patrol at night for crime while constables patrolled during the day; this system is not found in most places nowadays but instead rely on police officers to patrol at all times of the day. In the American policing’s case, the Eight Amendment did not exist at this time, and the idea of “cruel and unusual punishment” was nonexistent.
“Circumspect Police Ends the Drop in Crime?” This debate topic speaks about police being less proactive, because of vitriol, and causing an increase in crime rates. This debate topic is not directly related to the book, Ghettoside, but falls into the same bracket. The debate talks about the police becoming less involved because of denunciation, and rates of crimes increasing because of that. Ghettoside talks about the black-on-black homicide rates going up, one reason, because of the ignorance of the police. So, both the debate and the book have crime rates going up because of the lack of interference of the police department.
