It has become common today to fight for human equality. Yet in the meantime, the theme of racial discrimination could be seen in both To Kill A Mockingbird and Black Lives Matter, in ways such as marches but not limited to protesting. Though blacks argue that it is unfair for whites to shoot innocent blacks, and some whites contend that blacks also kill blacks, but both show that the debate over whether black lives matter has been growing in intensity. In To Kill A Mockingbird, the author agrees that black people should be treated equally.
The Abolitionist Movement Protest vs. Black Lives Matter Protest We all live in a conflicting atmosphere with different opinions that portray the way an individual looks at the world through their own eyes. In order to express our feelings, we may put up a fight or just let the negative stomp right over our opposing opinion. Looking at the world through a different aspect is not a crime that we all commit on a daily basis. There will be multiple sensitive objections that pop up along the way during your lifetime. The world without hate is a world without love.
In early interrogations it was common for police officers to use physically abusive interrogation techniques such as the rubber hose to convince suspects to confess to a crime, whether they are innocent of guilty. Fred Inbau came up with a different technique that relied on presenting a large amount of fabricated or true evidence to get the suspect to confess. This technique was very effective in getting confessions, it has an 80% confession rate. Unfortunately, some of the confessions are false confessions, we do not know how many exactly. The first step of the Reid Technique, a similar coercive technique to the one Inbau devised, was to watch the suspect and determine whether or not he or she is lying during the interrogation based on behavioral analysis; which is severely flawed and does not actually help us determine if someone is lying.
In the novel, The Lord of The Flies, William Golding utilises how the boys interact with the pigs to exhibit that when man is given too much power and control, it can cause him to become savage and vicious in nature; this is proven by the data collected from the Stanford prison experiment and the psychological experiments performed by Professor Stanley Milgram at Yale University. When man is given power, he is held to a high standard, which is often upheld for a certain amount of time. This idea is shown by how Jack cannot kill the pig at the very beginning of the novel, it also shown by the prison experiment, how the guards start off as normal people, without a power hungry nature. In Mcruer’s article “Cops’ deadly identity problem: How ”
“Black Lives Matter “is a recent example of Black Rhetoric within the media. Dating back to the unfortunate events that took place in Ferguson with the shooting of a young black male named Michael Brown, the even has grown infamously and famously depending on which side you tend to agree with. Countless people have given their input on the situation and not all blacks tend to agree with the movement of “Black Lives Matter”. Recently a women named Peggy Hubbard went on a rant about how she felt the movement was an unjust movement. Ms. Hubbard stated that saying black lives matter was implying that no other lives within the community mattered.
The poem “Miniver Cheevy,” is about a man who spends his days wishing that he had been born in a different era than the one he spends his days in. Looking back on the olden days Miniver Cheevy feels that the olden days were much better than modern times and the poem goes on to show his love for the past. However, instead of doing something about his love and curiosity for the past he chooses to reminisce about the past and drink his misery away. Throughout this paper I will discuss the poem’s central purpose and its attitude towards its subject matter, and how the author uses allusion to reinforce the poems central purpose and attitude. First, I will begin with the poem central purpose or theme.
Black lives matter is a national organization working towards bettering the lives of African Americans. It works toward rebuilding the black liberation movement. Black lives matter movement does not mean any other life is not as important. It's simply justifying that right now in the moment, the lives at stake are black lives.
When you think of Black Lives Matter what do you think? A hate movement? Violence? Well it is in fact none of those things and this article is going to help you understand why. After the murder of Treyvon Martin in the year 2012 the Black Lives Matter movement was created in response to this unjust death.
The biggest obstacle facing officers in the 21st century is simply the rise of technology. Officers depend on technology to complete their everyday duties, shooting radar, typing reports, getting dispatched, running plates. There is no denying technology is a vital and crucial part to policing, a necessary evil. However, now more than ever police officers have to deal with cameras being shoved in their faces, either via a cell phone or dash camera etc, and the ensuing onslaught being posted to FaceBook or other social media outlets, and then being crucified for doing their job to the best of their abilities and to the fullest extent of the law. They live in fear of being chastised for simply carrying out their duties.
There are many forms of unethical conduct that takes place in the criminal justice system that is the result of egoistic motivations (Williams & Arrigo, 2012). These criminal activities tend to range from police corruption which can encompass kickbacks, opportunistic theft, fixes, shakedowns as well as the corruption of authority (Williams & Arrigo, 2012).Whereas, corruption within prisons consists of organized drug trafficking, theft, misuse of authority, and even embezzlement (Williams & Arrigo, 2012). What can be gathered from both the police as well as correctional officers is that they are not immune to their willingness and opportunity to neglect moral and legal obligations for personal self-interest (Williams & Arrigo, 2012). Morality
Within the criminal justice system, the police have three main goals: to serve, enforce the law, and to maintain order. Most police officers are people just trying to fulfill these goals and protect the citizens, using discretion wisely, but sometimes in this process, it may seem that there is an abuse of power, especially in terms of the use of force. As stated in Criminal Justice in America (2014), police are able to use legitimate force on those individuals that are deemed uncooperative, but this force is sometimes deemed excessive. Excessive use of force is when the force used by an officer either violated department policy or the constitutional rights of the individual by exceeding the level of force permissible and necessary for the
The importance of pro-black movements, specifically the Black Lives Matter movement, was discussed within the Speaker Series event, “The Importance of Non-Violent Protests to Oppose Racial Injustice in Ferguson.” Speakers Cori Bush and Osagyefo Sekou stressed the need African Americans have for their lives to be considered as important as the lives of non-minorities, recognition of anti-black terrorism, and the lack of safe spaces for blacks. The motives of the Black Lives Matter movement has been given connotations that do not equate to motives expressed by Bush and Sekou. The movement is described as radical and anti-white by non-allies and black youth are portrayed as exempt from those considered engaged citizens. This disconnect and miscommunication
