Both of the stories characters could be in a lot of danger. Ana was really hurt by her gang, and Junior and Sarah went to jail for two weeks. In the Memoir, “I Escaped a Violent Gang”, the author shows us that the main character had the courage to join a gang. Even if it meant they had to be harmed to get in.In the beginning “I just wanted my mom to stop crying. My eyes got watery and something happened inside of me.
During the war, violence against women and children was the cornerstone of the Rebel United Force’s (RUF) plots. However, violence against women and children became an issue on both sides of the fight. Even opposers of the RUF used violence against women as a strategic tactic; most women who entered the war did so because they were abducted. Many women who fought with the RUF acted as captive “wives” of soldiers and had jobs handing out weapons, food, and valuables stolen from villages. However, unbeknownst to their male commanders, many women used the control they had over food and stolen money to prevent young boys and men from abusing girls (2).
Giles would soon be crushed by large stones because he would not give up who told him. Some people would be freed from prison like Elizabeth Proctor, others however like her husband John would be hung for not confessing to witchery. Overall the Salem Witch Trials should never even happened, innocent people died in the hands of vengeful parents and crazy children. Many people believe that the Salem Witch Trials lasted several years but in reality it only lasted a few months. Barrett Wendell states in an essay on Cotton Mather’s journal, “It was the great tragedy of witchcraft”.
Wiesel uses a lot of very detailed descriptions and expresses his feelings in a way that we easily start to trust him. He knows that this is one of the most terrible periods in the history and he tries “to help prevent history from repeating itself” (Wiesel VII). “He does not want his past to become [the children’s] future” and that is why he writes his book to be seen by the people who do not realize how poorly people were treated (Wiesel XV). These two quotes from Night show that the holocaust shouldn’t be repeated. The author shows this with all of the feelings, facts and descriptions he uses.
Even though the uncle was not a blood relative, it was still a big deal that she was raped. Her father’s humiliation, caused them to be kicked out of the house and that night they had nowhere to go. The uncle was charged and then let off the hook by Fulamatu. He was also accused of raping other girls in that village. Fulamatu expresses to Nick and Eva that she doesn’t feel bad for herself because of what she’s going through.
The VISA protected them from deportation so they were able to report abuse. In the case of Decoster, an immigration raid resulted in the deportation of all the workers. The men who committed sexual crimes against the women were also deported. Most perpetrators are not brought to justice but the women are affected for the rest of their lives. Rape in the Fields is a powerful documentary that addresses many important issues in regards to sexual assault.
In the novel, We were the Mulvaneys by Joyce Carol Oates, one of the main characters is victimized and goes through a traumatic experience after she was raped on prom night. Marianne’s rape was the beginning of a very traumatizing period for herself and her family. Once her “secret” is out, her family has turned their backs on her and shut her out of the family. This novel takes place in the 1970s and back then, victims of sexual assault had a very hard time of reaching out for help because of the fear of being rejected. In our society today, victims of sexual assault are more comfortable when it comes to asking for help without worrying about the fear of being rejected by the people surrounding them.
The origins of the issue primarily derive from the fact that many of the basic things that these individuals do is outside the scope of legality. People believe that illegal immigrants are failing to “pay their fair share,” and as a result, public policy should take action against this unfairness. An example of this is simply getting a driver’s license. Obtaining a driver’s license as an illegal immigrant is presently against the law. The opposing side believes that if illegal immigrants are able to obtain a driver’s license, then they may submit fake documents and use aliases, which defeats the purpose of proper identification.
This maddest bring’s a lot of pain to families that have lost loved ones to gun violence. We as people are not perfect but killing somebody is not the way in life to make peace with our enemy. Let us take time as people to stop killing and make peace because when judgement day comes a lot of people that have killed somebody and not ask for forgiveness will go to hell. Black on black crime has been a problem since the early 70’s but was not as bad as it is today. Black on black crime has been a big deal because young people are dying everyday because somebody the same age has a gun not to protect but to kill another person because they might not be as good as them or they did something to them that was wrong so they seek revenge on that person.
Heather Hogue CRMJ348-001 11/17/2015 Response Paper #2: Aileen Wuornos What happened to Aileen Wuornos? Was she insane or was she severely damaged from her past? In this paper, I will argue how Aileen Wuornos became a killer based on her life and upbringing. She had experienced long-term abuse as a child, had been abandoned/having no emotional bond by her primary caregivers, and began “hooking” because she was desperate to survive. Was the first man she killed in self-defense or was she going through post-traumatic stress disorder based on the abuse of her childhood?
Assuredly crime can have negative effects on anyone involved, however when the offender is familial, it can have an increased amount of detrimental effects on mental health. In the novel The Farm, Tilde is raped by her father repeatedly as a child. After she finally ran away, she leads a nearly perfect life, until her and Chris retire and move to a new country. In their new home, Tilde finds an abandoned building that Chris frequents, with many used condoms on the front lawn. It is 6.2 times more likely for a victim of rape to develop Post Traumatic Stress Disorder than someone who has never been raped.
Yesterday morning Mumtaz found her hanging from the rafters” (McCormick 152). The little girl could not take the psychological pressure that was brought upon her, and so she gave her own life to avoid it. This shows that the sex trafficking industry can mentally break people, and the ones who get out alive from the brothels are usually traumatized for the rest of their lives. After finally being freed, “Some girls who are trafficked choose to remain prostitutes for life because their home villages will not accept them” (Ruffins). This is also shown in the book Sold, with Monica not being accepted back to her village after returning.
“Illegal Immigrants” are deported every day due to various reasons. Many of them with family ties to US citizens. If we “welcome” back to society to reformed felons, why are we so harsh to “reformed felons” that are on deportation proceedings with family ties to the US? While I agree felonies should not be taken lightly, what would an immigrant convicted of a felony needs to do to show reformation and should the US allow this individuals to stay in the US with their families with legal status? Why?
This campaign season has cast a spotlight onto the unfavorable, and sometimes ugly aspect of immigration. While this topic is inherently political in nature, it can be agreed across all sides of the political spectrum that illegal immigration is a major issue and has been handled ineffectively within recent years. As immigration falls within the national sphere of our democracy, this in essence, leads to many inconsistencies between states regarding criminal charges brought against illegal immigrants. Also, by grouping the nation’s immigration policies under federal dictation, this inherently leads to many systematic flaws. The text highlights a few particular instances where the location of an illegal immigrant determines the person’s fate.
She is atypical Iraqi. She also feels that her Iraqi descent is a substantial part of her identity. When she is talking about the difficulties of going on with her daily life while her family is in Iraq getting killed she says, “ I can’t walk/down/the street/I want New York to Stop./Why don’t we count the number of Iraqi dead?”(49) The American’s line breaks are choppy, as if it is hard for her to get through a sentence. She cannot physically walk down the street because of the crimes committed against her family in Iraq. She is angered that there is no recognition of the countless Iraqi lives lost in Iraq everyday.
