Why does this have to be a news slant case? Does #BlackLivesMatter need to be a violent protest? Why can’t police stop killing these victims and just punish them in other ways? How can we stop this act of killing and actually have a meaning to #BlackLivesMatter, where they don’t kill Blacks because they truly matter, like everyone else. The limitations to #BlackLivesMatter is that even though many people consider this an important matter, many Journalists’ might be biased and slant it in their own way.
One case would be that of Shoshanna Hebshi, a half-Jewish and half-Arab woman. Hebshi and two men were forced off of a plane by Frontier Airlines when passengers reported suspicious behavior apparently performed by the two men. She was then stripped searched and held in a cell for 24 hours with no cause behind it. Hebshi has since filed a lawsuit against the FBI, Frontier Airlines, and other federal agencies (Warikoo, 2013). “Stop-and-frisk” has been a practice in the United States for many years.
Racial and ethnic profiling in our society is an ineffective method of crime prevention and it is harmful to the individual by degrading them their human rights as an individual. When a person is profiled due to their race or ethnicity it is unjust and the victim is having their rights and liberty interests taken away from them because individuals are being targeted based on their skin color and ethnicity. They are targeted to being involved in criminal activities and are therefore stopped and searched not for any criminal reasons but due to their race. As stated by the BC Civil Liberties Association, “Communities that are subjected to racial profiling are unfairly over-policed, unjustly scrutinized and disproportionately represented in the criminal justice system. Racial profiling is the product of stereotyping of radicalized communities and it fuels further stereotyping.
I think Justice‘s Harlan‘s predictions that because of the court‘s ruling, society would come to the belief that the two races were not created equal, did come to pass. After the court rejected Plisse‘s argument, more segregation did happen in many areas. The ruling did impact the country in that it allowed segregation to exist in business and public places furthering the idea that one race was inferior to the other. I think the rest of the court ignored his warnings because they didn‘t think prejudice should be regulated by the law. They didn‘t believe that forcing the two races to exist together would overcome racial prejudices and that the 14h Amendment was not created with that intention.
They did not even think it was bad anymore because their state of mind was saying other people are here so it is okay, but in reality lynchings are very brutal and should not be seen as entertainment (Beitler). After listening to the Radio Diary I conclude that the people were describing how harsh lynchings were, they also viewed it as nothing but just an event. People were so caught up in mob mentality, thinking everyone else is watching so it is okay (“Strange Fruit: Anniversary of a Lynching”). Both articles about mob mentality showed that it is the thinking of a group of people who think it is okay to do bad things together such as causing a riot at a sporting event all together (Smith; Edmonds). In conclusion mob mentality is very bad, do not get caught up with bad events just because other people are doing it.
In Detroit on September 11, 2011 a woman named, Shoshana Hebshi, who is half-Jewish and half-Arab was arrested because she sat beside two Indian-American men. The passengers on the plane complained to the flight attendant that the men had made a couple of trips to the bathroom and thought it was suspicious (Warikoo, 2013). After she was arrested she was taken to a cell and was demanded to strip down while an officer looked her over (Warikoo, 2013). Shoshana Hebshi sued the FBI and other federal agencies because she was a part of racial profiling (Warikoo, 2013). They had no hard evidence that she was doing anything wrong.
The mass incarceration is making our country worse. If you’re a person of color then the justice system will most likely not be in your favor. Overall we can see this as an example of when police brutality isn’t just physical force. (President Obama/The White House Twitter
Though, criminals should have second chance in their life to change their bad habits, and be a good influence. But, you can’t always trust them, you can’t have this hope that they will always have a good influence and never break the law again. As you know, ex-cons had made a mistake, those who trusted them before might have thought that the person would make good choices, but it turned out that the person made bad choices and broke the law. So, that’s why ex-cons should not have the rights to vote again. Ex-cons should not have the rights to vote again.
Although some say this program reduces the number of crimes and takes illegal guns off the streets, many people are against stop and frisk because it promotes racial profiling, police brutality, and violates the Fourth Amendment. New York has already put an end to stop and search, and hopefully, after reading this essay, it will encourage you to look more into it and put a stop to it in your city. Statistics
Racial profiling, therefore, is the involvement of law enforcement officers in a discriminatory manner targeting any individual based on race, ethnicity, religion, national origin for suspicion of a crime. It is also noteworthy that omission by law enforcement is a form of racial profiling. The ingredients for racial profiling then are law enforcement, race, targeting, suspicion, omission, and crime. Many innocent Americans are behind bars or dead because of racial profiling and the realization of the September 11 attacks has heightened the reactions of law enforcement against people of color and various religions. Although it is a much talk
This source persuaded me that ethnic profiling is ineffective, supported by studies that have been conducted. I believe that focusing too much on one group of people could result in authorities missing out on thoroughly checking other groups of people that could be just as dangerous or terrorists themselves. Stereotyping a group of people because of their race, ethnicity, or religion is not the solution because not everyone in a certain group of people think and behave similarly. As Richard M. Banks states in his argument, it is acceptable to look for suspected terrorists based off of the descriptions given to law enforcement. Nonetheless, targeting and unfairly treating a certain group of people because some of the suspected terrorists were coincidentally of the same ethnicity, race or religion is taking it to the extreme and is an indisputable act of discrimination.
There is a distinct pattern of police officers knowingly violating the civil rights of citizens in this country because they have been allotted the discretion to do so. That idea that police officers, are culturally conditioned to see minorities in a negative light and more often than not use their discretion to arrest, stop, question an unreasonable and disproportionate number of minorities and 99% of time they are never found liable or held accountable for their actions is a serious issue. People love to argue in favor of the "good cop" the defenders of freedom. The truth is the vast majority of the law enforcement officers in this country perform their very difficult jobs with respect for their communities and in compliance with the law. But this is not always the case.
In the article “The reality of Racial Profiling” it stays “racial profiling is unconstitutional… is “invidious,” “wrong,” “ineffective,” and “harmful to our rich and diverse democracy.”” We are all to be viewed as equals under the constitution, but that is not happening at the moment. Many have found it easy to racially profile others. Just as it is unconstitutional, it creates tensions between the different races. They try to compete to see who is better and others will hate each other because they either feel less or more than
Society has put the people affected by racial profiling lower in what society expects of them. Police officers rely on descriptions to identify suspects, in combination with other factors. When officers use the color of a person’s skin without using other identifying factors, they are guilty of racial profiling. Police officers are not the only ones guilty of using these discriminatory practices. Airport security guards, airline pilots, and business owners use these techniques.
This is because today, our justice system remotes the idea of fair trials and discriminate many African Americans and other minorities as well without realizing it. These victims of inappropriate racial profiling are mostly target from bias judges and jury members. For jury members are imperfect humans who often use cliche stereotypes as evidence while determining a person’s fate and don 't recognize or comprehend what their doing is wrong. Since, our society makes prejudice and racism as a thing in
