He continues his argument by critiquing officers as being citizens too and thus would also lie like any other person about a case like in the case of Micheal Brown, and how politicians defend officers and categories them as “most of them are good”. No evidence to these statements are presented to support his claim. His last use of logos is questioning the expertise of officers under certain circumstances. He makes the police officer fight crime. They are not health professionals, case-workers or teachers and they should not handle situations that require expertise in those fields.
This was the beginning of the end of most Americans respect and adoration for OJ Simpson. OJ became the prime suspect of their murders. This case is well known to this day for many reasons, including the LAPD’s tampering with evidence. One way the LAPD ignored the law is when they entered OJ’s home without talking to OJ, and without a search warrant. This resulted in an illegal search where the evidence that was found would not be admissible in court.
Already, Robinson did not have a jury of his peers, as guaranteed by the Constitution just like the Scottsboro Boys. Tom knew how bad it would look if he was caught with Mayella, which was why he ran away from the situation with the Ewells, even though he was innocent. He was terrified and knew something bad was coming. The prosecute questioned Tom about these particular actions. “‘Scared of arrest, scared you’d have to face up to what you did?’ ‘No uh, scared I’d hafta face up to what I didn’t do.’ ‘Are you being impudent to me boy?’ ‘No suh, I didn’t go to be.’” (Lee 265).
The government in this story uses the Technology and TV to brainwash and control their citizens. Technology can be good sometimes, but when it is too much it can ruin or even control someone's life. In conclusion, Ray Bradbury’s story shows that censorship, government control, and Technology reliance are all things to avoid. These ideas and ways of manipulation cause some people to lash out and some to simply sit in the shadows. Like Montag in the story strive for something better, strive for a life worth living.
Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury shows an accurate representation of what the government does to its people. Governments from all over the world take part of censorship because they want to keep the people from explicit content to protect them. However, the government can be excessive in censorship and not tell its citizens enough content that they are left to wonder. Ultimately, the government sabotages any concept that conflicts with its own and the control of the people. First, in Fahrenheit 451 the government censors different forms of literature.
Although media is responsible for the longevity of totalitarian political systems, in 1984 the author, George Orwell, criticizes the influences of media in society because it has negative effects on youth, and supports the abuse of governmental power over citizens. Within the dynamics of the social environment, media is always present in life, being like parasites that live in people’s minds and feed from their ideologies. In other words, individuals are no longer allowed to regress in a kind of evolutionary scale of communication, and media discourse increases more and more. Consequently, governments take advantage of propaganda and do nothing more than expand the possibilities of political privileges, economic gains and social superiority
The diary represents a catharsis, as Winston used it as a form of relief from repressed emotions that Big Brother’s totalitarian regime caused him to feel but conceal. Furthermore “Like Huxley, Orwell imagines a totalitarian society which wants to eradicate the concept of the individual but with the key difference that the way in which the citizens are controlled is more mundane, more psychological and more believable. ' ' (Written by Robert Stevenson Brown (Emagazine) but it is argued that the "fascist and communist dictatorships, the nightmare vision of 1984 is slowly fading away.In its place, Aldous Huxley 's Brave
Tamir was only trying to show them that the gun was fake and he didn’t say anything threating to the officers, they just started shooting. This story ties in with this theory, by thinking that those who are poor are criminals because of their lifestyle. They basically classified this little boy as a threat based off a call they received, they didn’t care to ask questions or to try to call the child parents. You can’t classify someone as a criminal because of their lifestyle, they basically
This lack in faith is reinforced by the unlikelihood of convicting the attacker. If a crime is reported to police it is usually dismissed due to a lack of evidence. Many instances of sexual assault are often labeled as "unfounded" by police, meaning the police disregard the report as hearsay since there was insufficient evidence to convict an attacker(Doolittle, 2017). Usually, the cases labeled unfounded ( after being reviewed by police) found no violation against the law. The Uniform Crime Reporting Survey (UCR) (an overview of sexual assaults compiled by police) does not include cases of unfounded sexual assault as they are either unreliable and create discrepancies regarding reporting(Rotenburg, 2017).
“People project their own worldviews of others and assume they do what they do, Lie. Meaning liars always assume others are liars..” With this being stated, when others assume that the police are liars they themselves are liars?? Now this is just an opinion, but it shows how some Americans justify how others view the police. This doesn’t touch on the fact that police tactics are still brutal even if they aren’t liars. So “Addressing police misconduct” from source #3, I’ve found that the law enforcement officers, perform very difficult jobs, with respect for their communities and in compliance with the law.
I wonder why the police never went the extra mile to figure out where that call came from. One incident that irked me that Koeing did not expand on was Jay attempting to stab his friend. His willingness shows what Jay can be capable of doing. I applaud Koeing finally bring professionals into the case to decipher if Adnan might be innocent. A reporter could not have done it by
