The technology advancements alone have led to several cold cases freeing the wrongfully convicted. What are some of the contributing factors wrongful convictions? There is no way to make a right for the justice system can do for those wrongfully convicted. The loss of time however, there have been some initiatives about compensation for the errors that have happen. The public opinion is so strong when it comes to catching these criminals.
This is an important concept because it explains that officers should not follow society and pressure from the public and media but follow the laws that our country. This a good thing to have when dealing with persuasive criminals and individuals. Both officers and civilians benefit from this principle because it protects both parties. Officers also need to know the laws, so they can stay away form trouble and not be deceived by public persuasion. This is a good thing to have in America today, because many criminals will say anything to get out of punishment.
According to him, “People who smoke crack know the potential dangers; most people who eat hamburgers don’t”(Schlosser 264). He juxtaposes the example of a drug user and their understanding of the risks associated with their consumption to a fast food consumer . By Schlosser having sympathy towards the audience, he seems to be credible to society that it is not their fault of getting ill through the fast food they consume as well as the diverse problems that the fast food industry has
A world without fast food such as Mcdonald's, Wendy’s, Jack in the box etc would have a healthier environment. It is known that fast food is incredibly dangerous and can cause health problems, in spite of how unhealthy the food is people still tend to consume it. The film Supersize Me is a documentary in which it emphasizes the message of the risks eating fast food has, in this case it’d be Mcdonalds, it expresses the harm that could be done physically and mentally to a person. Every fast food company spends millions of dollars advertising their product, and though they know the product isn’t exactly the healthiest snack they fool people into thinking otherwise. Morgan Spurlock attempts to demonstrate the importance of eating healthy and limiting the amount of junk food consumed, he makes his claim plausible by using several different ways to attract the audience’s attention.
Due process is usually done in the courtroom and with a judge. I believe that this system allows freedom for most people but also convicts those who deserve it. Personally I believe that everyone should be treated fairly and that everyone should be tried in the same way. The due process law is usually paired with the Fourth Amendment that will not allow people to be wrongly convicted for any crime if there is no proof. For example, Mapp vs. Ohio 1961 is one big case that really dealt with due process that ended up going to the supreme court.
Corruption in the law enforcement is still a great issue we face today and there is ways to prevent this heinous act of selfishness such as having a strong leadership and operational procedures in the sense that law offices should always have an eye kept on them by higher officials. Of course there are police officials that work for the law and abide by the rules, but the litter of corruption can soil the whole reputation of the police department. By constantly keeping up with regulation and monitoring the actions of a police officials, corruption can be prevented and eventually be stopped permanently. (Grant
Regulations on use of force are so important simply because it regulates those who fight corruption, and you can 't fight corruption with corruption. Even with corruption in the police force being a thing, the numbers are almost non existent as described previously in this paper. Law Enforcement as a whole has been put down and stomped on
“Critical thinking is a desire to seek, patience to doubt, fondness to meditate, slowness to assert, readiness to consider, carefulness to dispose and set into order” -Francis Bacon (1605) In other words, critical thinking is when you want to learn, you don’t immediately doubt everything you hear, you think deeply, and you back things up with evidence. In Mrs. Francia’s Critical Thinking class, students have written many papers in which they have had to support all of their facts with evidence. Also, her class has done research projects in which they had to decide what sites are credible, and which are unbelievable (or fake). This past quarter we have covered a lot of standards and done a lot of projects. One research project that Noelle’s class did this quarter was a Famous Failures project.
Health class covers a wide variety of personal health information and is quite useful. However Obesity and Heart failure related deaths are leading at number one for the biggest killer. Don’t you think students should know that. There should be more concrete hard truths revealed to all the students before they go back out and get a greasy slice of pizza in the lunch line every day at lunch. Should these facts scare them?
How about the customary practices of fast food places to "Super Size" meals? Fast food conglomerates have duped Americans into believing that we are getting a "bargain" when we get a 32 ounce drink for .25 cents more than we would have if we purchased a 12 oz drink, or if we get 16 oz of French Fries instead of 4 ounces. Then there is the weight loss industry which is a multi billion dollar business. I believe the medical profession, the advertising industry, and the fitness industry are in cahoots to keep America fat. Why do I believe this?
