People need to understand that the country could not be where it is without diversity of races. Immigrants are not trying to take anything from anyone; they are hardworking individuals seeking to live honest and fulfilling lives. A group of Muslims committed an indescribable act of terrorism years ago, however not all of them are terrorist. Immigrants are in search of a dream, which may be achieved with the resources and opportunity available in the US. Surely, there are a few bad apples among the lot, but in all that is good, there is bad.
To Kill a Mockingbird Essay When controversy and conflicts sprout, many individuals go to courts to seek justice and to have a fair and just trial. Since this is the United States, a country known internationally for its equality and democracy, many individuals would think that the court system in the U.S. is the fairest and has the most sophisticated court system. However, for many individuals, this simply is not the case. Many face discrimination and are not given the right to a fair trial. In To Kill a Mockingbird, Atticus states, "our courts are the great levelers, and in our courts all men are created equal."
Rough Draft Is the death penalty an effective and justified punishment? This is a topic many Americans have discussed for a long time, and has caused much controversy. Both sides have their pros and cons, and they will be discussed. The first point that many people have about capital punishment is that it’s unconstitutional. For instance, some say that it violates the 8th amendment, which says that no cruel or unusual punishment shall be inflicted.
Recently, many people have forgotten why the United States of America was formed, for freedom and independence from a king and state. Some of us even have trouble remembering what rights we do have, due to the gradual but continuous media and educational focus on more current distractions. Few have taken notice, or been able to see through the daily fog of which Iphone to buy or what flag offends who. There is still discrimination everywhere we look being race, body type, the religion we follow. More and more police are being caught on camera shooting unarmed citizens, throwing bombs into cribs during no-knock, warrantless entries, and causing the general public to lose faith in a system of governance originally set up to protect and serve.
There were many people jailed with one reason, they are Muslims. It constitutes a dictatorship type of government and not a constitutional government that promoted democracy. They also did not respect and appreciate the international law. Action should be taken even though US is a strong and major countries, but, human right must be prioritised. The act of President Bush accused Osama as the main actor of the attack, we could see it clearly that his ‘intelligence’ which because they can know who the real enemy is in just few hours of the attacks.
Racism is a problem that has not been addressed as properly as it can or should be. Racism laws have protected many U.S citizens and continue to today but many incidents of racism go by unnoticed. Racism laws should be more strictly enforced because incidences of racism are on the rise, the first amendment of the constitution protects freedom of speech and religion, and it would prevent innocent people from being suspected of crimes based on their religion/race. Racism laws should be more strictly enforced because incidences of racism are on the rise. An example, of my first reason that racism has gone way too far is when Republican Candidate Donald Trump requested that all muslim immigration/travel to the U.S be banned “temporarily”(see link)Donald Trump: Ban all Muslim travel to U.S..Obvisously, Banning all Muslim travel and immigration to the U.S is a guarantee of weakening the economy.
Also in the major part of north Africa (Somalia, Sudan, Uganda, Egypt), countries of Asia as China, India, Japan, Vietnam, Singapour, Indonesia. And also even in the American continent, putting in the first place the United States of America. But the death penalty is not only used by countries as a way of legal punishment, also a lot of extremist and terrorist groups use it. But, does really the death penalty has a positive impact? It is shown that the countries that use this system of penalty is supported by most part of the society, and when someone tries to revoke this punishment that person do not receive the popular support.
Without these changes to the Constitution, the government would have had the ability to silence protests, to take away the people’s weapons, to search ones property without a given reason, and to jail the people for given reason. As old as it is, the Constitution is still a vital part of our still growing country. Without it, the federal power of the government would be too strong and the rights of the people would be at harm. With current issues arising with foreign affairs and the rights of American citizens, the Constitution is needed now more than
“The death penalty is not as effective as many people think.” The death penalty as a form of punishment for heavy crimes has been implemented worldwide for thousand years. Historically this punishment has always been associated with revenge and strength of power. Governments were using the death penalty to scare and suppress their enemies. The death penalty is still in “criminal law” of some of the countries and has a lot of opponents as well as I who think this punishment is not effective for the following reasons. First of all I believe this punishment violates the fundamental principles of human rights according to the United Nation’s Universal Declaration which says everyone has the right to life, liberty and security no matter what is their status, but unfortunately there is no prohibition against the death penalty in international law.
The King and Us Freedom of speech can be a blessing, and sometimes a curse. While we can say all thoughts in our minds, our words can cause serious harm to others, especially the words which contain no truth. Struggling to find a way to protect and limit the scale of freedom of speech, humans created a defamation law, in order to protect the reputation of others. Like other countries, Thailand also adopted this law, and later adapted to its cultural hierarchy. This adaptation causes the Thai legal system to have different defamation laws for ordinary people and for the head of the state, aka King Rama VI, the current king of Thailand.
In Behind the Backlash: Muslim Americans After 9/11 the author states, “Arabs are caught between Census categories (where they appear as "white") and reality, between ‘us’ and ‘them.’ (Suhay136). Because of 9/11 many Arab/Muslim Americans are placed into another category, resulting in many Arab/Muslims feeling unwanted in their own lands even though they hold US passports. Often times the 9/11 attacks is said to have united the Americans, but many Muslim/Arab Americans who lived in the US for many years were not allowed to share the same grief many Americans did, but instead, many Muslim Americans were looked upon as terrorists
They now have unprecedented power to monitor the phone calls, e-mails, without a warrant. This is a great way to monitor terrorist but for the normal non criminal citizen it 's a violation simply because they can collet such things as religous affilations. medical conditions, close friends, romantic partners, gun owners and any additions. there is a movement in congress for a cleaner auterazation
Massacres and Watchmen: How the My Lai massacres Changed War Reporting Freedom of the press is a right held very dear by Americans, but out of what was this devotion to the media born? Unfortunately, that answer is not as simple as one event, one person, or one story. The government is an integral part of our daily lives which oversees all and controls most. Many of the instances that have gleaned the admiration of the American people for the press have undermined this, occasionally, overreaching powerhouse. “Woodstein” and Watergate, Edward Snowden and the NSA, and Seymour Hersh and My Lai exposed the hidden wrongs of the US government with staggeringly influential power to change both the government and journalism.
