According to Main in ¨Underage Drinking and the Drinking Age” from the Policy Review, lowering the drinking age to eighteen from twenty-one would increase the harsh effects that are currently impacting our society and our military. Main insists that the United States should not get rid of the laws that set 21 as the mandatory minimum age for drinking, known as the ¨21 laws.¨ Although there are laws and severe consequences for those who drink under the age of 21, underage drinking is a huge concern, especially at college. When the undergraduates binge drink, drinking five or more alcoholic drinks on one occasion, they not only have the potential to hurt themselves, but also their peers. For example, over 474,000 students have unprotected sex,
This affected families because now people who wanted to drink had to do it illegally and many got put in jail if they got caught. It also had an effect on society with the growing numbers of people who were admitted into the alcohol wards of the hospitals. The Nationwide ban on the production and sale of alcohol during the roaring twenties had a profound effect on the manufacturers, distributors, law enforcement and the public. The Eighteenth Amendment indicates no purpose to confiscate liquors that are lawfully owned. The Amendment is operative throughout all tutorials limits (Decisions of U.S. 4).
For example, drinking and driving is dreadful to our society. Drinking and driving is considered to be irresponsible, Their would be more arrest within juveniles. When a teenager turn 18, their considered as being a responsible young adult but in other cases, 18 is still a child which is not legal. “The law would irresponsibly allow a greater segment of the population to drink alcohol in bars and nightclubs which would increase the rate of deaths in America” (Thomas). This calls for not lowering the drinking age so the citizens would have a greater chance of living.
Crime and the fear of crime lower the quality of life for many Australians, particularly the elderly, those living in poorer areas, damaged by crimes such as arson and vandalism. Crime is already costing the community thousands of millions of dollars per year in insurance company payouts, police courts and correctional costs, and the replacement of buildings and facilities caused by crimes such as arson and vandalism. The gaols are overflowing, and backlogs plague the courts. In tough economic times, however, governments are unwilling or unable to respond to public concern about rising crime rates by constantly increasing police numbers, spending more money on the courts, passing harsher
According to many people’s beliefs, getting rid of gun is a long and hard process. But it is not as hard as normal people think it is. A neighbour country that is a lot like America has been able to enforce laws following a deadly mass shooting that shocked the nation called Port Arthur mass shooting in 1996 and thus forced the Australia to pass sweeping gun control laws known as buy back, this created a major outcry, but soon all guns were bought back and destroyed, or securely locked up. Since then there had been 0 mass shooting, and use of guns had dropped by factors of 18 percent., and there was 0 mass shooting since then, with 13 mass shooting before in the past 18 years. The most remarkable thing is that it was done under 3 and a half months.
There are many conditions involved in which can lead to the law being changed. This includes the change of social values, failure of existing law, changing the composition of society, international law as well as introducing new concepts of justice and/ or technology. The Sydney lockout laws were introduced in March 2014 as a part of NSW’s attempt to curb drug and alcohol-powered violence and to overcome the existing law, following a series of deaths in the inner-city nightclub precinct. This falls under the failure of existing law, this means the current law does not work so it needs to be changed. The death of two young men in Kings Cross triggered a mournful and overdue conversation regarding street safety, which lead the lockout laws into
Misinterpretation is a common mistake made among society today. The Australian novel, ‘The Life and Crimes of Harry Lavender’, by Marele Day explores the power of deceit and how it affects modern society. Traditional male detectives are challenged in order to question the common perceptions of gender stereotypes. The impact of criminal activity throughout Sydney is conveyed through the personification of the city.

Prohibition got rid of saloons, many well known restaurants and clubs. It was not even enforced by the people who started this but the starters would be hypocritical putting a law for no consumption of liquor but they were drinking it themselves. Officers and others of the federal government were bribed. The worst of all the murder rates went up mostly because of the criminals and their gang
There are as many differences between Memphis and Dallas as there are similarities. The first that comes to mind would be the traffic. Although Memphians complain about the traffic, it really isn 't that bag compared to other cities. You may sit in traffic for a half an hour on your way to work, but your not going to sit anywhere for more than an hour unless the interstate is shut down due to a massive wreck. The drivers in Memphis have a tendency to be rude and reckless.
In 2008, I moved to an apartment in Rockaway Park located in Far Rockaway. I’ll admit, the neighborhood was far from attractive when I first arrived. The rumor mills stirred up a storm suggesting that Far Rockaway was well… “Rough around the edges” for a lack of a better term. Working on Riker’s Island, most of our patients who reside in Queens often came from Far Rockaway, thereby confirming the rumors that the town was riddled with crime, infested with drugs and plagued with anything one might consider rebellious or unscrupulous were true. And on my first day, I got lost and winded up surrounded by… you guessed it, The Projects.

Alcohol related violence is becoming an increasingly large problem in Australia. One of the main forms of violence that has already claimed the lives of over 90 people in Queensland is the “king hit”. A king hit is “when a single blow to the head causes a victim to fall to the ground unconscious, either from the punch itself or the impact between the head and the ground. This can result in fatal skull fractures and subdural hematomas” (Pilgrim, Gerostamoulos, & Drummer, 2014). The problem of alcohol fuelled violence has escalated to the point that the Queensland government has passed new legislation that will reduce trading hours for licensed premises and restrict the sale of alcohol past 2am ("Overview of the Tackling Alcohol-Fuelled Violence Legislation Amendment Act 2016 for licensees | Queensland Government", 2016).
1. A powerful blow to the head, neck or chest that causes the victim to fall to the ground unconscious is called a ‘king hit’. The victim may die due to the force of the blow received, or due to the impact of their skull coming into contact with the ground. Since 2000, as many as ninety Australians have been killed as a result of king hit attacks.
