I fear that the police is going to become the new KKK.In the article of Jim Crow Policing Bob Hebert stated,”People who object to the harassment are often threatened with arrest for disorderly conduct”. In other words Bob is saying no matter the police can harass you and you can 't do anything about it which is unfair. The Jim Crow Policing article in paragraph nine basically summarize how police would stop people of color because they dressed like a gangster or dressed like they are suspicious of doing something. The police also stop people of color by the way they move shifty.
Someone once said “All the violence in the movies and literature, you cannot tell me that it would not disturb a normal person.” In our days graphic novels became so violent that they cannot be demonstrated to the kids. The comic book “Legends of the Dark Knight” that written by the author named Chuck Dixon shows the great examples why the comic books should not be presented to the children. In this book author tells us how Batman violently defeats the irresistible beast. Batman kills the beast because of his horrible reprise of all the people in the city.
Investigating the police department decreases the claims of the abuse and the brutality. Supporters of the police officers claims they do not target members of minority groups. “Mark Fuhrman, a white LAPD detective who had investigated the case, making disparaging remarks about blacks and admitting to various forms of misconduct, including beating suspects. ”(Police Brutality ). Accordingly, bystanders show a video that Los Angeles Police department brutalized Rodney King after a high-speed freeware chase.
Then these governments and city planners calls to beatify these cities by violently evicting people, pushing out the poor to outskirts of cities and essentially hiding them from wealthy eye. Land developers also are guilty in this process. In order to maximize profits they trick squatters and others into eviction only so they can demolish their homes. He also poses a strong argument of organizations such as the World Bank, trying to “help” slums, but then building to nice of places for poor people to afford and not helping people living in slums at
The NYPD’s critics object, in particular, to the department’s long-standing practice of maintaining order in public spaces. This practice, widely referred to as Broken Windows or quality-of-life or order-maintenance policing, asserts that, in communities contending with high levels of disruption, maintaining order not only improves the quality of life for residents; it also reduces opportunities for more serious crime. Indeed, the Broken Windows metaphor is one of deterioration: a building where a broken window goes unrepaired will soon be subject to far more extensive vandalism—because it sends a message that the building owners (and, by extension, the police) cannot or will not control minor crimes, and thus will be unable to deter more serious
As Gladwell mentions that the broken window theory and the graffiti on the subway are serious problems, so Gladwell mention a way that “Because he believed that, like graffiti, fare-beating could be a signal, a small expression of disorder that invite much more serious crime” (153) and “the team would nab fare-beaters one by one, handcuff them, and leave them standing”(154) “Graffiti” and “fare-beating” are like broken window theory, if nobody cares the problems, then, the problem will still exist and become more seriously. So handcuff people without paying a token is a method to renovate the system and change their minds. As the renovation, people will change their minds and not be evading the system again. As lots of people being handcuff,
The young boy grows up roaming the streets with negative influences. “He starts to roam the streets at night and he learns how to steal and he learns how to fight.” are some of the lyrics Presley used to describe the violence in the song. Shortly after this line he sang, “Then one night in desperation the young man breaks the rules, he buys a gun, steals a car, tries to run, but he don’t get far, and his mama cries. As a crowd gathers ‘round an young man face down with a gun in his hand.”
They arranged this rally to protest the several workers that were killed by the police the day before. Later on in the rally the police showed up at the Haymarket square to get rid of the rally. Once they started to come closer to the workers a person within the crowd threw a pipe bomb(to this day he is still unidentified). The police and also some members of the crowd opened fire and chaos broke out. Seven police officers and at least one civilian died as a result of the violence that day, and an untold number of other people were
In 1886, a peaceful rally meant to shine a light on the lack of enforcement of the eight-hour workday at Haymarket Square in Chicago turned into a riot. Towards the end of the event, an unknown person threw a bomb towards police officers who had come to break up the rally. Several officers were killed. Not knowing who threw the bomb, police arrested several well-known anarchists and labor activists. The argument was that these activists had encouraged people to attend the rally and ultimately "aided, abetted, and encouraged" the use of violence and the murder of police officers (Linder, 1995).
Laws on Graffiti should be stricter to stop vandalism in the city and opening up other crimes such as burglary and assault (Graffiti Hurts Website). Graffiti can open crimes for younger teens. Which, is looked down on by certain young individuals. Graffiti is hard to clean once it is on a surface of some kind. For example, Los Angeles had spent 28 million dollars on removing the graffiti from off the walls.
Guilty of many crimes, they broke shop windows, stole and beat people on the streets; raided movie houses looking for the Edelweiss Pirates, who stood up to them and even fought with them on the streets of Dusseldorf, Essen, Cologne and other cities in western Germany. The Edelweiss Pirates resisted Nazi rule by also offering shelter to deserters of the German army, escaped prisoners from concentration camps, and escaped prisoners from forced labor camps (“Faces of Courage, The Edelweiss Pirates,” n.d.). The Edelweiss Pirates were not seen as a problem despite the group’s constant ignorance of Nazi rules, however, the nazis’ views towards the group changed which ultimately led to the end of the group. During World War Two the authorities believed that the Edelweiss Pirates were the ones who were collecting British and anti-Nazi propaganda leaflets dropped by bomber Command at the start of the war and sharing them through letterboxes. This was seen as being more than just an irritation; it was viewed as a major disruption (“The Edelweiss Pirates,”
The job of the police officers is to protect all citizens from any threat and help us to be safe on the streets. Stop and frisk is a practice that the New York City Police Department uses as a way to fight crime, however, stop and frisk is unjust and has resulted in racial discrimination by officers, as well as an abuse of power. Over the years many civilians have been stopped and frisked by the police, this irritates some people as they feel they are stopped purposely or for no reason. So can police frisking in some cases go too far?
There’s a lot going on about the world and how cops use excessive force when it comes to taking down the bad guy. This topic focuses on the black lives matter movement because they are letting cops get away with murder because the color of their skin and they wear a blue uniform with a badge. In many cases such as Michael Brown, Christian Thomas, and the little African American who the cop threw out the chair in SC. where the authority use excessive force to make their position clear in the society, but they do it too extreme and not needed. While sometime the amount of force is needed to withstand the victim , police abuse their authority in many cases because they can and is not needed but racial bias is playing a part.
The tactic of filling jails with protesters and activists used in the Montgomery Bus Boycott proved successful then, but was undermined by Albany police chief Pritchett. Pritchett studied the movement’s tactics and fought against them by putting arrested protesters in jails far away from Albany and in large institutions, so city jails would remain open. Because of the chief’s countermove, black people were arrested in droves without any resulting victory after the Albany movement was abandoned. In Clayborne Carson’s book In Struggle (1996) SNCC members realized that “patient suffering by nonviolent protesters was insufficient to bring about federal intervention.”
