The one teacher jumped on the lap of the other teacher, taking a bullet that would have hit the other teacher in the head. That same teacher who was shot was able to pull the fire alarm to save other lives. Almost three years ago to the day, another gunman open fired during a screening of “The Dark Knight Rises.” On July 19, 2012, in the Aurora, Colorado theater, James Holmes used an AR 15 rifle, a 12-gauge shotgun, and at least one 40-caliber handgun. He killed 12 people and injured 70 others. He was arrested outside the theater approximately seven minutes after someone called 911
Deadliest shooting occurs at a gay night club in Orlando, critics say it is worse than 9/11. On the night of June 12, 2016, gunman Omar Mateen traveled to the Pulse gay night club with a pistol and assault rifle around 2 a.m. Sunday and started shooting. During the attack, Mateen calls 911 and begins to pledge his allegiance to ISIS. Many people would call this a hate crime but it is deeper and higher than a hate crime when you intentionally took not one person but dozens of lives. Rumor has it, that he had much more going on in life, but when he saw two men kissing it set it him off.
The main thing I see here is how the no knock warrant is affecting the lives of innocent Americans. A 19 month old had most of his nose blasted off his face when a Georgia SWAT team burst in and tossed a flash bang grenade into his playpen. The grenade collapsed his left lung and tore his face and the rest of his body down to muscle and bone. Law enforcement found no drugs in the house. A seven-year old in Detroit was shot in the head during a no knock warrant.
Matthew Fraser gave a speech at an assembly in front of approximately 600 students. Their ages ranged from fourteen to eighteen year-olds. The speech he gave was to humor and convince the audience to vote for his friend for vice president of the student body. His speech contained sexual innuendos when he was comparing the candidates that were running for the position. In response to the speech, the Bethel School District suspended Matthew Fraser for 3 days and removed him from the list of candidates to be considered for graduation speaker.
In 2004, 19-year-old Ryan Ferguson spent his days locked in a Missouri jail doing curls with a five-gallon coffee jug until he couldn’t feel his arms. The scrawny, basketball-obsessed teenager had been charged in the murder of Columbia Tribune sports columnist Ken Heitholt, based almost entirely on the testimony of Ferguson’s former friend who had dreamed that the pair were somehow involved. Ferguson was convicted despite no physical evidence against him and sentenced to forty years in maximum-security prison. For almost a decade he and his family fought for his innocence, until 2013 when his conviction was finally vacated. Ferguson’s true-life nightmare is chronicled in the documentary dream/killer, which screened last month at the Tribeca
A historical event can impact a lot of people such as the massacre at a theater in Aurora, Colorado in July 20, 2012. During the newest Batman movie debut “ ...A gunman opened fire..”(Wertheimer 1). Twelve people died, which impacted their family members, and other 70 people were injured during the shooting, and that’s why now they think twice before going to watch a movie again. ”Minutes after the attack, police arrested James Holmes.”(Wertheimer 1) , but is now at a state hospital undergoing a mental evaluation.http://search.ebscohost.com/login.aspx?direct=true&db=nfh&AN=6XN201307201314&site=src-live&scope=site This impacts a lot of people such as Reyna. Reyna used to live in Colorado when the massacre happened.
There are times that “treatment” of mentally ill inmates crosses the line to abuse. Kevin Demott a 19-year-old prisoner in Michigan has had a long troubled history of bi-polar disorder. He first entered the correctional system at the age of 13, when he was caught trying to rob a pizza restaurant with a toy gun. By the time he was 15, he was placed in an adult prison for breaking several rules including assaulting a guard. In January of 2011, Kevin while in solitary confinement, was found banging his head against the wall until he was severely bleeding.
Police brutality is at its peak. In recent years police men have killed a number of innocent civilians. On July 17, 2014 one such case is Eric Gardner died in Staten island, being one of those civilians who sadly have been killed by a law enforcer. Another example is Harming students and by standers has also appeared recently, on October 27th 2015 a police officer in a high school class told a student to give him her phone and she refused. Resulting in him viciously grabbing her and throwing her (while still sitting at the desk) and slamming her on the ground and sedating the student.
First and foremost, I believe that everyone can work together and not fight all the time. What is sad is that when people are getting killed by their race like the 17 year old Brian ogle suffered 3 skull fractures after getting beaten up at an ace hardware store in the parking lot on September 30.Police arrested Quartez Walker 20 years,Bobby Brown 19 years,La Noah Ealy jr.18 years and Daceon Nix,20 years.The stupid thing is that he got beaten up just for saying blue lives matter on facebook. It just scares me to see a 17 year old kid getting beaten up for just saying that blue lives matter.
Jan. 10, a bullet probably fired from off campus hit the window of a building at a college in Southern California. No one was hurt, but students could still have been frightened. Classes were canceled, rooms were locked down and police searched campus for the gunman, who was never found. On Feb. 5, a police officer was sitting on a bench in a Minnesota school gym when a third-grader accidentally pulled the trigger of his holstered pistol, firing a round into the floor. None of the four students in the gym were injured, but, again, the incident was probably scary.
