The outcome following a sexual assault is sometimes referred to as being worse than the actual assault itself (The Hunting Grounds, 2015). Following the assault, the college campus, police, criminal justice system, media, and various other forms of institutions are known to re-victimize these individuals whom have already been previously assaulted. These numerous institutions are suppose to help, and report fairly and justly. Unfortunately that’s not the case in Liz Seccuro’s book, Crash Into Me, or in the film The Hunting Ground. Every single victim experienced a form of revictimization whether that is through false reports in the media, or the college campuses’ failure to report or help sexual assault victims.
In addition, Hixon had just seen the man walking toward town (Pfeifer, “United”; “Shipp”). Ed Johnson was arrested and questioned for three hours, but he told Shipp that he didn’t know anything about the rape (Pfeifer, “United”; “Shipp”). That same night, an angry mob attacked the jail where Johnson was thought to be held, but, little did they know, he had been moved to a jail in Nashville for fear of a lynching (Pfeifer, “United”; “Shipp”). On January 27, Nevada went to Nashville, where Johnson was identified as the assailant and was indicted for the rape of Nevada Taylor (Pfeifer, “United”; “Shipp”). On the day of the trial, Johnson had an alibi, stating he was at the Last Chance Saloon when Nevada was raped, which was supported by many people at the saloon; however, Hixon and Nevada say that Johnson was definitely the rapist (Pfeifer, “United”; “Shipp”).
According to the website New York Daily News Mel Gibson stated while being drunk “Jews are responsible for all the wars in the world (Sacks, 2016)”. Since Mel Gibson drunken outburst in 2006, Mr. Gibson acting career still hasn’t recovered from the incident. Mr. Gibson has repeatedly apologized for his derogatory statements about Jews. However, many Jewish Americans haven’t forgiven the actor. It's hard for me to say Mel Gibson's commentary was an outburst of racism or an uncontrollable anger problem, Mr. Gibson said hateful comments while he was under the influence of alcohol.
Police body cameras Police body cameras are a type of video recording system, which used by law enforcement to record their behavior with the people, and also known to increase both police officers and citizens liability. One of the causes that made body cameras almost mandatory was police brutality against citizens, and especially black people. The other cause is just the inconsistency what the police says, and what the people say, why always people should think that the police officer is telling the truth. In the last 10 years, we saw many conflicts between police officers and citizens, which result into dead of innocent people and it was not a good image for police department. One of the issues is that the law enforcement gives the police
According to CollegeDrinkingPrevention.gov, “on average, about half of college student sexual assaults are associated with alcohol use”. On the other hand, many say that some punishments are too extreme. For example, expulsion from school is too harsh of a punishment. Some will argue that it was an accident or the victim brought it upon themselves. These kind of statements are very close-minded because there is no victim that would wish assault on themselves.
So they continously do the activity until such time that they realize that it has become an addiction without realizing that it is detrimental in their health. The misuse of alcohol does not only affect the concerned teenager but it also breaks relationship as wekk as the society in general in terms of violence and crime, accidents and drink-driving. To explore more on this issue, a studys conducted in Harvard School of Public Healthshows that students who are engaged in alcohol drinking activities tend to be are displaying negative behaviors and therefore reveiving sanctions by the authorities (Wechsler et al.
There were several of Holtzclaw’s victims who obstinately spoke out about their abuse done by Holtzclaw himself. There was more than enough evidence to successfully put Holtzclaw aways for his crimes yet there were several dogmatic people who still had the audacity to say that he was innocent. Daniel Holtzclaw used his badge and the power he had coming from being a cop and used it to hurt innocent people when his job is meant for protection. Holtzclaw chose his victims from Oklahoma City’s poorest neighborhoods making sure that they had criminal records so in a case
One thing that I have seen is of people that will smoke or drink alcohol just because their friends do it or because they think it’s cool because they see a bunch of other people doing it. If you drink underage it can lead to bad things like getting in trouble with your parents if you get caught or could get caught by the cops which would be even worse. Another thing that I have heard of is people offering other to do drugs. Drugs are bad because they can lead to brain damage and can also get you in trouble with the law because they are also all very illegal. Another example is that say your friends would go cliff jumping or something and you don’t feel comfortable doing it because you’re not experienced and its 100 feet up in the air.
Steben criticizes the officers while describing their illegal questioning tactics “‘So, you boys been doing some drinking tonight?’ This question is then repeated several times throughout the ensuing conversation in slightly varied forms,” (354). Steben points out how the officers attempt to trick the people they pulled over by putting words in their mouths. Instead of asking once and trusting the response of the drivers, officers continue to prod, attempting to dig out information that does not exist. Steben’s irony allows him to portray this unfair treatment by
Fruitvale Station: Reaction Paper Throughout the years there has been several stories on police brutality and the Fruitvale Station film is one of those stories. It showed the viewers situations that involve racial profiling, police brutality and abuse of power. Throughout the film the main character Oscar had strengths, weaknesses and he shows how he gets through it before his death. It all started when Oscar and his friends on New Year 's Eve got stuck on the trolley and ran into gang members that he had problems with in the past. A fight was then created, and the trolley was shut down.
TRADITION Earlier this spring of 2017 students across the Iowa State campus awoke to an email from their President Steven Leath to find he has announced his resignation and accepted a new position at the University of Auburn. Now it’s out with the old and in with the new. Some of the traditions at ISU will be gone forever. In the meantime, ISU students will be vigilant as the search for a new president begins. Cyclone students look back on the legacy he left behind and reflect on his tenure here at Iowa State.
That is one year of school that a teenager is missing and will have to make up. A DUI conviction for a teenager could also result in three to five years of probation (Duke, 1). It is not only teens that get caught for drinking and driving, adults do it also. Justin Bieber was arrested for drinking and driving in 2014. Justin thought that since he was a "pop star", he would be let off the hook.
Nine students claimed that they were suspended without being given a hearing before their suspension, or even after their suspensions were over. Ohio law requires that the parents of suspended students are to be notified within 24 hours of the suspension, and the principal must state the reasons for the suspension. Six of the nine students attended school at Marion-Franklin High School. They were suspended for disruptive and disobedient behavior. Two others, Dwight Lopez and Betty Crome, attended Central High School and McGuffey Junior High School.
Prohibition is the banning of alcohol. America changed its mind though because depression started and murder rates started to rise. When prohibition got passed, a lot of people to get a taste of beer or whiskey back so bad that they were willing to do whatever it took for them to get it. A good majority of these people were gangsters, dope sellers, bootleggers, and racketeers, as shown in document A. They were all types of drunks.
