I would encourage everyone to become less judgemental. You could never know who you need in the end. Looking these situations, the cops quickly judged the victims because they were in a categorized group. We all tend to judge someone that has something different about them. Racial profiling can be unfair and unreasonable.
How does the concept of mob psychology in The Crucible affect the beliefs of the accusers and other civilians? Mob psychology plays a prevalent role in the beliefs and actions of the characters in Salem. What starts off as a series of simple accusations motivated by personal greed and revenge compounds through the sheer panic of the mob. Many people have seen their neighbours and friends become the target of accusations, and thus, a deeply distrustful attitude is created. As a result of their panic, they do not stop and consider the validity of the accusations, and many innocent people are accused.
For example, When Michael Brown was killed there was a several marches around the country they all got national attention. In Martin Luther King’s speech he argues that people should stick to using non-violence instead of using violence to solving your problems: “So in the days ahead let us not sink into the quicksands of violence; rather let us stand on the high ground of love and non-injury.” The idea that we should use non-violence instead of using violence is better because if you start to use violence people are going to say they want change but they are harming our city 's, we cannot advocate violence because we want change to happen and we don 't want more people getting hurt. Indeed we should use non-violence because we will get national attention. Ultimately non-violence protests are better than violent protests because if we want to change something from happening we have to be civilized americans and not make things
Is it right for the citizens to have to take the disrespectful treatment certain cops give them? Of course not all officers of the law are like this. They all have the good, the bad, and the ugly. It’s the scumbags that harass people and take advantage of the badge and gun that give police officers a bad name. But if all police officers know that they can get away with certain things and they are aware of the things they can get away with, then eventually humanity will see an even bigger threat to society than what these police officers say is a threat.
Things are censored so people cannot interpret them in their own way. Books are outlawed because they allow a person to form their own ideas, which leads to chaos. “If you don’t want a man unhappy politically, don’t give him two sides to a question to worry him; give him one” (Bradbury 58). Captain Beatty said this to Montag when he was explaining why the firemen do what they do. In the chase towards the end of the book the police arrest a man that is not Montag so the citizens are satisfied.
Racial profiling of innocent individuals takes a toll on their psyche and makes them believe that no matter what they do, they will be deemed guilty until they can prove they are innocent. “Each time it begins in the same way, it doesn’t begin the same way, each time it begins it’s the same.” is written at the beginning and then again near the end of the page (107). The reason this phrase is repeated like this is to show the repetition of the events that come with racial profiling. Every time a person fits the description of a criminal they
It takes away freedom and security from all citizens. It gives the government an absolute form of power. As shown through historical context and recent events they will most certainly abuse this power. Americans as a whole are an oxymoron when it comes to events like these as they would willingly give up liberty for security. The real irony is that America sees more gun shootings than any terrorist act, but yet they are not willing to give up their freedom to own
They wanted labor laws to be set in place to help them. Much protest became common during this time. Some of the protests are peaceful and others violent which eventually turned into riots. Many people saw this as a way to express themselves. The day before several protestors was beaten on by police officers.
Nations all over the world have been oppressed at some point. There have been angry hordes all over trying to get their rights back and prevent noblemen from taking their freedom away, as the oppressed people in the novel A Tale of Two Cities by Charles Dickens tried to do. Violence, though, may not be a way to overcome oppression. The limit to using violence to overcome oppression may work, but gets too extreme if no changes occur and people just take advantage of the carnage that slashes around the community. Violence is too wicked for people to handle.
Some officers pick money and corruption over good policing and a good reputation. Brutality and unauthorized force are also a problem and most likely always will be. Problems arise from officers thinking that they are above the law in which they uphold. “If you are wearing blue and you commit a criminal act, that is a sign of corruption” (Perry, F.L, 2003, p.1). There is a big problem revolving around whether police should carry guns or be able to shoot people.
The Unit command could not allow one of its own to just leave. This would create moral problems, this war was unpopular, to allow one of their own to troll the streets back in America without the standard debrief would only court certain disaster. The solution turned out to be simple. Send one of their own to “chase” and apprehend Greeley. If Greeley resisted and killed the chaser, CID could move in quickly and kill Greeley.
Police officers were once known as peace keepers, however, now they are the ones to avoid. They’re more worried about quotas, and are using their power to arrest innocent people that quickly escalates to police brutality. Our constitutional rights are being violated and that’s the biggest issue in America now. Police are supposed to protect and serve the people, however their power is being abused and it’s causing riots.
