Police Body Cameras When I consider the police I think of how they protect people and our city. Some people assume that cops are just trash and they hate them. The topic of police body cameras sounded like a good idea to me because many people are always filming cops at their worst. When they happen to be beating up on someone, but notice it is always only after the police “agonized” the person then the camera turns off. It never shows how this individual may have been acting towards the officers.
On January 16th, 1991, President George H. W. Bush publicly announced in the Address to the Nation the United States’ participation in the Gulf War. The Gulf War arose when Iraq accused Kuwait—rich in oil—of keeping the price of crude oil low, demanding it to forgive its thirty billion dollar debt in compensation for the acclaimed conspiracy (Smitha, n.d.). In this announcement, President Bush stated the United States’ just intentions for participating, and its goals. President Bush affirmed that other means to make Iraq leave Kuwait had been tried, but were unsuccessful. Thus, the US’s goal in this engagement was “…to drive [Iraq] from Kuwait by force.”
The 80 's was a pivotal and controversial decade in American history. It can be characterized by prominent political, religious, military, economic and social aspects. While turbulence was common, it is also noted for being one of the most influential and important periods for America and the rest of the world as well. When asked what they remember about 1980 's politics, one might immediately think of Ronald Reagan. Ronald Reagan was born February 6th, 1911.
He spends all the revenue that he makes on developing nuclear programs because he is afraid that America will attack his country rather than responsibly use the money on helping strengthen his weak government and economy. The North Korean dictator has a “slush fund from his father, Kim Jong Il… [and] all the money [is being] put towards missile and nuclear weapons tests” (Dangerfield 3, 5). This is a clear example of power being used unwisely, and hence North Korea is not a very favored and
The 1950’s through the 1970’s was a time filled with hardship for many Americans because of the ineffective invasion of Vietnam. In a completely unreasonable manner, the United States attempted to end communism in Vietnam, by investing an exceedingly large amount of money on war materials and losing plenty of lives, only to fail; the U.S., filled with pride, became involved in the war completely oblivious of the North Vietnamese military force and should not have entered the war until they were aware of the forces of China and the Soviet Union (allies of North Vietnam). In 1955, President Dwight Eisenhower sent advisors to Vietnam to train the South Vietnamese soldiers in order to battle against the North Vietnamese forces. Then, Eisenhower delivered a speech1, The Domino Theory, giving Americans his opinion on Southeast Asia’s future if the U.S. overlooked the communism occurring in Vietnam. Eisenhower stated that if Vietnam was not under any influence by the United States, communism would spread from one country to the next, resulting in the entire southeast becoming communist.
But now countries, private companies are extracting it so much that it will run out, and people will not have any means of work in order to feed their families. As the movie displayed, it shows that Chain increased their oil import by twenty-five percent, and they are number two in oil import. With the high demand of oil, it is said in the documentary that countries might get into a great recession once again. In other to prevent these kinds of problems, such as, lack of unemployment, and recession from occurring in countries with natural resources, they need to invest in alternate resources for the future generation of their
The quote “A nation that continues year after year to spend more money on military defense than on programs of social uplift is approaching spiritual death” (King) shows his view on the war and I agree with his view. I think the money should have been spent on things back home that supports our citizens and not on war. Another quote that I like is “Communism will never
In “ The Water Cell” Reza Khan was talking to a British guys on how he can become an emperor. This shows that uneducated people see this as a oppountiniter for them and also for his country. They give up on the resources (oil) to obtain power for their country. “You Just give us the oil and we will take care of the rest” , ( The Water Cell,20) Iran can keep this oil to their own country and build on their own to become stronger and wealtent ,but for the uncle he have a room.
Yet, is has become a really bad habit teens, and adults have gotten. It has caused a lot of deaths to many people in the world. No one deserves to die or get hurt for a stupid reason. texting and driving can be stopped by, parents having conversation with teens on the danger of texting and driving. Also everyone can put their cellphones on silent before they get behind the wheel.
Five police officers ambushed by a sniper and two black men shot by police during a supposedly peaceful protest. This protest quickly got out of hand because of the violence and threatening protest. Killing police for the rights of the black community was or should have never been a part of the plan. Now that police officers have been killed, this gives the police a greater reason and law enforcement to fear us and another reason for us to take caution.
But the general refused to listen and they marched right one into the camp which was not peaceful and was violating the right of the people in the camp they have the right to their own being and privacy. Our second argument is on peaceful protest and not peaceful protest. The refusing to leave government property is violating the law, yes you may protest, but it has to be peaceful and non-threatening and no violence in the processes of a protest. There were two police in the process of a protest that were beaten to the ground.
People got beaten up to a pulp and sometimes had to go to the hospital. It was said that the Navy would beat Chicanos up and strip the naked then burn their clothes in the middle of street which too me is going to an extreme. The Zoot Suit was more of iconic fashion trend for Chicanos during 1943. Due to the Zoot Suit riots the Zoot Suit was pulled off of store shelves and were made illegal to wear in Los Angeles. In my opinion, if you have to ban a certain type of clothing because people are committing crimes with it then obviously your government isn’t doing something right and needs to be replaced immediately.
The Washington post wrote an article on their own theory and they said “it might be the inability of the White House, Congress and foreign governments to come to an agreement about where to put the detainees”. The question for Americans is, Why didn’t he close Guantanamo Bay when he doesn’t have charges, evidence, proof or court cases for over 13 years now. Obama did not veto the detainee prevision and the national defense authorization act which codifies the indefinite detention of people including Americans without trial. Each detainee can leave through one of four different routes: a civilian trial, a military tribunal, a foreign country 's prison system or freedom. Though Obama has not given these detainees, these options.
The idea of funding for this affair was thought of by Oliver North. The idea was mostly off the record and to get money from other countries allied with the US to give large amounts of money to contribute to continuing the anti communist movement in Nicaragua and war supplies. “ A portion of the $48 million that Iran paid for the arms was diverted by the NSC and given to the Contras, the U.S.-backed rebels fighting to overthrow the Marxist-oriented Sandinista government of Nicaragua. ”(Iran-Contra, 1) North was a Marine Major.
