So, it has brought attention to unlawful justices against minorities. This has caused a political uproar in the African American communities. The black lives matter movement brings attention to these problems. It also has caused tension on how many African American citizens view of the police. Even though police officers have a body camera it is often released quite some time after the incident has occurred.
It also had an effect on society with the growing numbers of people who were admitted into the alcohol wards of the hospitals. 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. This made police officers jobs more difficult because the people who wanted to drink had to do it illegally, and the cops were cracking down. It opened up opportunities for organized crime to start manufacturing and distributing of liquor, while making millions of dollars along the way. All of a sudden drinking was illegal.
Throughout history, disputes and tensions between law enforcement officials and communities of minorities have endured hostility and violence between each other. Racial profiling has become a “hot topic” for researchers as well as for politicians and by now it is likely that most citizens are at least aware of the common accusations of racial bias pitted against law enforcement (Cochran & Warren, 2013). Communities of color are being discriminated against and racially profiled by white police officers for any suspicion of criminal activities. It has been widely assumed by policy makers and citizens alike that allegations of racial profiling are mostly associated with the policing practices of white officers and their treatment of racial and ethnic minorities (Cochran & Warren, 2013). Also, individuals of minority descent will certainly recognize that they are being racially profiled during a stop that is being conducted by a white police officer.
The shooting footage of Keith Lamont Scoot forms part of an outgoing debate on race and abuse of power. Recently, the shooting of black people in the U.S by the police is causing a lot of protests. But, what are the reasons that are leading to this crisis? Is it because of race? To take a posture in this situation is difficult because there is not enough information released and the judicial process of these cases are mostly carried out in secret by the police.
The primary goal for the KKK is to reach its goals of racial segregation and white supremacy. In todays KKK there are more of a publicity stunt gang rather than a violent
They started lynching to protect white women from rapists, even though rape was not their biggest threat. The biggest threat at the time was homicide, with many other reasons following. The court systems were not very fair at the time. Klan members were among the judge and jury, making the trials extremely biased against blacks. This led to many false accusations towards black people.
Cops have one of the hardest and most dangerous jobs out there. They should have the full respect of the American public, and as of now that is not happening. When you look at the statistics of who is being shot, yes, African Americans do make up a larger portion of that. However, people should not jump to the conclusion that cops are racist. As said before, most of the shootings happen in the inner city and blacks make up the majority of the people there.
I think this is sad. I hate that guns are always put into the wrong hands of certain people. I think that this may show that Chicago need more police enforcement in many areas of the city. It 's may also show how gun increases city crimes or murder rates of people. Gun violence has to stop if not the people and the city will suffer as a whole.
The media got peoples attention and made more African Americans around the US angry at the jury decision of Brown vs. Fergusson. The black people took the bait, went on rants, and started the “black lives matter” campaign. This could offend some white people who feel as if the African Americans are trying to make their lives matter more. The truth is that all lives matter. If the roles had been reversed, a black cop shot a white male, the white Americans would have not rioted or started a new campaign about how there lives matter too.
Why do we have to be scared of getting killed by some crazy person carrying a gun. When going out to do everyday things, how is there a guaranteed a shooting won't occur? Why do we have to carry guns to feel safe? Why do we have to debate on having to teach our kids to use a gun ¨just in case?¨ Why isn't there stricter laws on guns? How many more shooting does there have to be in order for there to be a harder way for anyone to get a gun?
Racial profiling has always been an issue in the United States, although we as a society tend to ignore it, it is still occurring around us everyday. Data has proven that racial profiling is an issue, it shows that, “Racial profiling is real. Disparate treatment of black and brown men by police officers is real. Grotesquely disproportionate numbers of killings of black men by the police are real” (Blow). Blacks are the number one race that is being killed by police officers; the numbers of the killings are drastically high.
Framework: If we are able to prove that UBC’s are not effective, and should not be used, then we win. Contention 1: Implementing background checks would take a lot of money and manpower to actually work and would cause more people to become victims of crimes. Subpoint A: By implementing background checks it would raise the price of most firearms by more than 150 dollars.
Although it largely depends upon the specific type, mental illnesses in general can degrade the rationality of a person’s decision-making ability. Since a person diagnosed with a mental illness is unable to properly make cognitive and logical choices, they are more likely to misuse firearms, thus posing a danger to themselves and others. Therefore, we must enact strict regulations that immobilize mentally-ill people from obtaining firearms. Gun regulations may seem repulsive to some people in our country, because for them, guns are the equivalent of freedom and security, and to regulate those firearms may be regarded as an encroachment upon American liberty. However, it is crucial to identify how this fallacy plagues our society; a gun is a gun, it is a weapon designed for the purpose of ending someone’s life.
The debate surrounding gun control and gun violence has been an ongoing controversy in many communities and America as a whole. As gun violence increase each year, views and opinions are rising, which not only have created tension in communities, but also has become a major debate in society. Although some critics argue that guns bring an overall negative impact to the country, others comment that guns are crucial to the beliefs and views of people today as well as important to their culture. In the context of today's society, many people in America are viewing gun control as an infringement of their rights and its threat towards their ability to protect, thus questioning: To what extent should gun use and possession should be controlled?
Mass killings are on the rise, more mass killings have occurred this year than ever seen before. People are living in fear and are looking for something to blame. The most common weapon used in these killings have been guns. With guns being the mainly used weapon it comes as no surprise that is what the American people and our government have been looking to regulate and in some cases ban guns, the term they use to describe their acts and notions is gun control. Gun control looks good on paper but in reality it will infringe on our second Amendment right, disarm the law abiding citizens, and will result in the increase of illegally purchased weapons and crimes committed with illegally obtained weapons.
