In the beginning, Mr. Arthur Radley’s son generally roused a lot of trouble and caused a ruckus, culminating in him and his friends locking the town sheriff inside a courthouse. However, Mr. Radley didn’t know that his son was causing trouble until he was arrested. In the words of Scout, “Nobody in Maycomb had nerve enough to tell Mr. Radley that his boy was in the wrong crowd.”(10). This quote perfectly sums up the unique but relatable character criteria. The quote is not portraying people as heroes all the time.
Prior to the September 11th attacks, the group had been linked to several more attacks including attacks in Kenya, Saudi Arabia, Indonesia, Turkey, Algeria, Israel, the United Kingdom, and many more places. (The Editors of Encyclopedia Britannica 2) All of these attacks trace back to the main mastermind of the group: Bin Laden. He attacked so many more places besides the U.S. which shows his overall threat to the whole world. And even though he always claimed to follow the “purest form of Islam”, many experts insisted that he was covering up the faith’s edicts against killing innocent people. Islam draws boundaries on where and why holy war can be waged but Bin Laden declared the entire world as fair territory.
“ Now you can admit you are guilty,” the chief said[...] “We won’t punish you severely provided you write a self-criticism[...] Mr. Chiu cried. “ I won’t write a word because I am innocent.”(Ha 472) Mr. Chiu still believes that his plead of innocence will help him win his freedom. He does not realize that he is not in a place of influence or power to sway their decision. His complaints have no impact on those in charge of him. “If he were able to, he would have razed the entire police station and eliminated all their families.”(Ha 476-477) Mr. Chiu has become a truly changed man.
The way an officer approach person need to be changed because most suspects are killed instantly due to suspicion of them having a gun or an officer feeling threatened. Officers have killed men, children, women innocent victims everyone is not a suspect. If there is harsher punishment enforced upon officers they will make officers more rational before making a decision and not so quickly and pulling out a gun. Average citizens usually considered the law before commits a crime know the risk fact may lead to jail. Police should consider the same fact that they could go to jail too, police are not above the law.
When Martin Luther protested an fought for the right of the colored people he did in a nonviolent way but the rulers did not use the same method. According to the article Selma to Montgomery March “The marchers didn’t get far before Alabama state troopers wielding whips, nightsticks and tear gas rushed the group at the Edmund Pettis Bridge and beat them back to Selma.” The ruled risk getting punished harshly but that doesn’t take away their responsibility. It is the citizens duty to create a safe and equal environment for everyone. “You are our sovereign, our Government, only so long as we consider ourselves your subjects” (pg.176). Citizens can’t be managed by the rulers in everything they do.
The Massachusetts government arrested many Shaysites for treason, but was later forced to pardon all but two because so many people had been involved. Massachusetts’ new governor, John Hancock, realized he could not punish such a large number of citizens without instigating further restlessness. So many insurgents had been involved that the government was forced to let most of them off without penalty. Starkey reveals one of the many lessons of the rebellion: “Government was not to be amended by force of arms. The inefficacy of that kind of textual criticism had been amply proved, and there must be no more rebellions.
At the beginning of the text it states the quote, ”Governor George Wallace stopped two black men from a doorway trying to enter.” This is showing the theme of acceptance because policeman were not accepting others for being who they are and taking them as a normal citizen. Another thing that shows the theme of acceptance is the next quote, ”The police still don’t know who set off the bomb killing four.” This is showing acceptance because whoever is doing the bombings really doesn’t want to accept blacks and whites together and is going to do whatever to not let it happen. The last example of how the theme is acceptance is because at the end of the text it states, ”Black and whites worked together risking their lives to push for a change.” This shows the theme of acceptance because the blacks and whites are showing acceptance by working together and risking their lives to push the rule for everyone to be together and accepted. This shows how the theme of the text, “The Watsons Go To Birmington,” is
Thunder crashed against the corners of the world and lightning split the sky as we reached the road, but we did not stop. We dared not. We had to reach Papa” (256).This quote shows that Cassie knows that T.J. is being maliciously and unrighteously attacked by white people, but instead of running at them and trying to save them like she would have in the beginning of the book, but she goes to get her father to save him. Obviously, Cassie changes from the beginning of the novel to the end. She changes because of what her father tells her: Some things need to be let go, other things you may have to do even if you do not want to, and you have to love yourself.
As the rescue team headed out, the citizens of the city started to steal out of all the stores for their survival. More crimes broke out after katrina than when katrina never hit. Stealing, rapes and all other crimes were being committed and the police couldn’t do anything about it because the mayor and government made their first priority to rescue the survivors or the city, the people who decided to stay in the city. The delay of federal response to Hurricane Katrina along the Gulf Coast and has been led to many officials, also with President Bush. President Bush called the initial response “not acceptable” to question FEMA’s preparedness for a natural
He believed the president was too quick to encourage war and that if a discussion had taken place between Mexico and America, a war could have been prevented. In his disapproval, Thoreau refused to pay his taxes and spent a night in jail only to write “Civil Disobedience”. No where in “Civil Disobedience” does Thoreau encourage violence to reform the government. He, as well as Gandhi and King, encouraged nonviolence while
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.” The realization that black people’s suffering would do no good to create change reinforced many SNCC members’ belief that nonviolence was not enough. Instead, self-defense for the sake of protecting black lives was
She explained that although the situation is less than ideal, it is perfectly legal to be fired by one agency and hired by another. A portion of the community has started a petition because they don 't want to be policed by Zeneth Glenn. How can the citizens of Ozark, Alabama expect Zeneth Glenn to serve and protect the citizens when he broke the rules as a corrections officer and used a snake to intimidate and torture Trawick? We can 't say he allegedly used the snake because he was already fired for his actions. Now they have given a him a gun and badge, and car...
Attorney General for prohibition enforcement. she wrote this document about how congressmen and senators were being alcoholics. She was upset that the men who wrote the volstead act, an act against alcohol, were too bootleggers. In document D it says “Bootleggers infest the halls and corridors of the congress and ply their trade there.” During prohibition homicide rates took a great rise. document B shows that prohibition caused more people to kill, most likely to get the alcohol they couldn 't live without.
