Lost Angels: Skid Row is My Home was indeed an insightful documentary. Prior to reading about Skid Row in Module 7.3 (Buns, 2013) and watching this documentary, I did not know that Skid Row’s purpose was to keep the homeless population concentrated in certain areas away from the rest of society, so no one is bothered by their presence. This practice of dropping off homeless people to get rid of them is not only inhumane but proves how little society really cares about the homeless population, particularly for the mentally ill. Unfortunately, police-dumping is not just a method employed by the police department, but hospitals have been involved in discharging mentally ill patients and transporting them out of their facilities without following
Mr. McCourt explores personal, political, and economic issues throughout the story. The beginning of the memoir begins with, "When I look back at my childhood I wonder how I survived at all. "As a young boy Frankie had personal issues in result of his father 's alcoholism. At the end of work every Friday Frank 's father was supposed to come home and give the family his salary for the week. Sadly, his father usually did not come home on Friday 's and would usually just spend the money at the local bar.
The Police vs. the Community Police brutality is a big issue that is affecting our society in many ways and no matter what state you live in you will either face it yourself or know someone who is facing this situation and either wants help or revenge. There are many reasons the police would treat people anyway but I see the main reasons as there is no agency to police the police, the police often use the alibi “I felt threatened”, and racism. Through the eyes of a young black male I see these things happening every day. One, of the reasons I think police brutality is such as a big deal is because there is no agency to police the police. This means that there is nobody telling the police to stop or to handle the situation differently.
I believe he was not understood well enough, and have a serious attitude to fix his problems. As for the disciplinary action against Roberto, with the 3 days suspend without paid is enough. Another warning would do nothing to him unless he correct himself. I believe this type of employee will not last long in the company since there are no coworkers are truly backing for him. A loner in a teamwork environment just does not fit this type of
He lack of communication regarding the leaders of the Hupacasath leaders and the residents delayed the community intervention from taking place, which in turn lead them to poverty and low employment rates.it also seemed to segregate them from the Alberni community. Another issues would have been the lack of knowledge of how to use the economy around them. This as the second biggest weakness I found. The leaders of these communities should have briefed the residents of the possibilities around them but yet nothing was done. Some strengths that I found were the communication that took place between the two communities and within the communities themselves.
This article brought many points into light that many other articles were too sacred to bring up or simply did not want to bring up because the evidence went against their claim. This article talked about how racial profiling is often times misunderstood. To argue his point, he talks about how crime is never evenly distributed in cities and many times the places where there is the most crime is a part of town that lives in poverty. Often times this also means these parts of town are highly diverse. Policemen then, doing their job, watch these parts of town because of the high crime.
Despite being appointed as God’s chosen liberator of the Israelites, Moses is a person incapable of effectively leading his people. Moses’s lack of charisma, confidence, and determination are his greatest flaws as a leader which are demonstrated when he initially fails to stop his fellow Hebrews from fighting. His critical flaws as a leader initiates a chain of failures that will befall the Israelites during their journey and their eventual punishment of never reaching the Promised Land. One of Moses’s greatest shortcomings as a leader is his lack of charisma. He is unable to make the people naturally follow him and his words.
The heat and lack of water was hard on people. The citizens were frustrated the city could not take care of them. (Soergel). The citizens of New Orleans felt unsafe due to lack of protection. Theft was a big problem because there were not enough police officers.
If sex offenders are addicted to drugs or alcohol, it is much harder for them to receive help from treatment centers because many of the programs cannot take in sexual offenders. Also, they may face a hardship when it comes to finding a job, because many places will not hire people who have a felony. Sex offenders will also have a hard time finding a place to live because a landlord can refuse to let the offender rent from them. They also have to be a certain distance away from any schools, playgrounds etc. Some risk factors for drug use found with sex offenders include; family history of addiction, being a male, mental health disorders, anxiety, depression, and loneliness.
But this isn 't always the case because the video could be said to have represented something else. There really is no legal solution that is going to discipline the police and break them of their habits. I would also like to add that the media plays a big part in bringing these homicides to light. They are usually really one-sided and everyone looks at the situation from theirs. This in turn causes more of a separation between the community and the police, however, a healthy relationship between the police and the community diminishes the prospect of the police using excessive force at all.
The purpose of this article was to portray how the american society functions. Day to day we see any things along the streets and one of which includes homeless people. Homelessness is a very sensitive topic because many do not really think about it too much. Thousands of us walk by and simply ignore them and think that someone else will help them out. Fact of the matter is that everyone basically thinks like that and this problem is never going to get better.
In fact, a lot of ex-convicts are banned from certain jobs making it even harder for them. Since these released prisoners are not able to find jobs, they have to resort back to previous crimes like dealing drugs to be able to sustain themselves in this “new life” as they become hungry and desperate. This is an endless cycle that you can’t break free from once the criminal justice system gets you in its
He was caught but wasn’t mandated to serve any time although he was released back into the custody of his parents. Many people struggle to find steady lobs daily due do a bad previous record. This concept was referred to as an “illegal but still widespread practice of employers rejecting applicants or firing workers solely because they have criminal records,” (Citation). Although they may have been forced to follow this path due to poverty or to make a better life for their families, they have been branded as a criminal who doesn’t know how to go back safely into a normal working environment. Many organizations have been formed to help end this but this still proves to be a reoccurring problem toward many of the lower class families of
