‘Big brother is watching you!’ This sentence was and still is for a lot of people food for thought. It comes from the famous book ‘1984’ written by George Orwell. In his book, he describes how the world of 1984 would look like. It is strange to see how realistic and timeless his book is, as part of it applies to the present-day society.
Another alternative to decrease police misconduct is through the use of body cameras which would hold officers accountable for their actions. Often, commanding officers exercise little supervision over the daily activities of their officers. Not only do officers patrol alone, but they are authorized to quickly create solutions and sanctions on the spot. This provides officers the freedom to get away with both minor and major violations to outright crimes. A tactic to prevent this from occurring is to mount body cameras on officers while on duty. Stav Zhiv of Newsweek writes that body cameras “[reduce] the use of force by roughly 50 percent.” allowing for increased transparency and citizen views over police legitimacy. (1) Transparency, or
“Determinism is the philosophical idea that every event or state of affairs, including every human decision and action, is the inevitable and necessary consequence of antecedent states of affairs”(Information Philosopher, 2015). It refers to the claim that, at any moment or place in time, there is only one possible future for the whole universe. However, the concept of determinism often comes into question when looking into whether human beings possess free will. Free Will can be defined as “the power of acting without the constraint of necessity or fate; the ability to act at one's own discretion” (Defence of Reason, 2014). The very definition of the terms determinism and free will appear to be conflicting however, many philosophical thinkers
In looking back at the questions from the first refection activity I believe that I am most successful at intellectual empathy. I consider myself to be someone who is very empathetic to others. In the past few weeks we 've had some very tough announcements at Kimberly-Clark and a lot of the team has had to really come together to be supportive of each other. I made the decision to take the voluntary severance offer and to leave at the beginning of May and my co-workers were very upset. They made it very clear that I 'm the positive one in the group who keeps everyone on the up and up. While it was heartwarming to see my friends emotion and feelings for me come out at the same time is was very sad and difficult to think who will fill this void? I guess I played a bigger role than I thought I did.
King’s letter was structured in such a way, to address all the concerns of the clergymen. Since it was such a long letter, King wanted the clergymen’s major points to be refuted towards the end, effectively showing his audience the racial injustice that occurs with the Birmingham police. In the public statement addressed to King, the Birmingham police were mentioned towards the end. With the way the letter was structured, there is a possibility that King addressed their arguments in a chronological order. King easily refuted this point with an appeal to emotion, showing the appaling image of the Birmingham police force. If this point was chosen to be addressed in the beginning of the essay, then his argument would not have the same effectively,
6. Analyze the authors on both sides. Are they liberal or more conservative? Who do they represent as in their organization? What does that say about their organization? (Explain)
Police should wear wear body cameras because of civilian and police harm decline, evidence and clear information, and civilians being with the police instead of against them. I think that with these reasons, it will show that it will make a positive, huge impact on the society that we live in today.
The implementation of body cameras in law enforcement has increased recently. The body cameras have had a positive impact on society. These devices have helped in the process of investigation of cases and with the protection of all citizens. The body cameras that police have decreased the likeliness of crime occurring because the individuals know they are being recorded. For body cameras to truly be useful in society, they must be used correctly, and the footage must be handled properly. Therefore, through proper usage and experience with devices, body cameras can be very beneficial to any community.
All around there are police departments that are starting to use body cameras. The departments that are starting to use these body cameras are showing benefits of using of them. They are not cheap but there are funds that are helping them buy these cameras. The body cameras also are providing a better understanding of all events when they happen. The use of these body cameras have brought out many benefits in using them, but there are also downsides to using them. The downsides are that they are not cheap to buy and the storage for the data that is recorded is filling up fast and there is a constant need for more storage. “The department has four of them, each costing about $350” “The recordings are deleted to make room for new videos” (Hall). On duty police should use the body cameras because there will be a better understanding of any events or incidents and less

In our society one can think of many situations where an individual may stretch the law. For instance, the camera light. An individual could be approaching a stop light that is yellow, considering if it could be a camera light one may stop, if it is not a camera light one may consider run the light (not stopping). In our society video and audio recordings and cameras do dictate one’s behavior. In the article, First scientific report shows police body-worn-cameras can prevent unacceptable use-of-force, researchers at the University of Cambridge (UC) presented facts to solidify that both civilians and police officers have responded positively to the use of cameras. The term positive means that these individuals are less likely to use force if they are aware that the cameras are rolling. One would consider this finding to be reasonable as individuals normally behave as society would dictate if they know that they are being watched.
In the article “The use of Body Cameras by Police Departments: A Good Idea? In Time Magazine, author Carter discusses the advantages and disadvantages of using a body camera by police department. Carter mentions some researches and police officers’ opinions about the negative impact of using body cameras. The author concludes that body cameras should not be used by police departments. However, I believe that police officers should wear body cameras because it prevents excessive force and discrimination, allows to harness the technology, and is a tool for evidence gathering.
Mediations influence on our decisions stops when we realize its effects so that we can live with individuality and not by those we see on television. In the film The Truman Show the medium of television becomes the prison in which Truman Burbank resides. Mediation decided every major decision in his life including his marriage, his job, and his lifestyle. This film shows how the desires of people around us, caused by mediation, become our own desires and this influences the decisions we make. Many scenes in The Truman Show explain how Christof, the director, altered Truman’s life through the use of mediation. Mediation negatively affects us by identifying lives of those on television as reality causing us to imitate their actions.
