Prohibition outlawed the consumption of alcohol during the 1920’s and thousands of people did not care. Bootleggers arose and alcohol was crafted underground and sold in the black market. Thousands of deaths occurred because it was made without inspections or any sort of government regulations. Vidal writes, “...forbidding people things they like or think they might enjoy only makes them want those things all the more.”(412) I agree with this statement because if someone isn’t allowed to do something he or she finds interest in, the curiosity and desire only increase. When my mom ordered me to not excessively drown my milk with chocolate syrup, it only made me want to make it the darkest shade of brown known to man.

But I say that yes these games might teach kids that the real world isn 't always that safe but I believe that these games show kids to be violent and reckless. To conclude this is why many parents and government officials believe that kids should not be allowed to play violent role playing games.By not letting kids play these games we can prevent more horrible and tragic shooting involving

Teens can be influenced by many factors, the most common one being peer influence. Most teens grow up feeling insecure about themselves and try to fit in, this causing them to act a certain way that they aren’t used to. “I was trying to make friends… i didn’t realize it at the time, but it was an initiation into the crew” (Akinsanya). Segun Akinsanya had lost his mother at a young age, eight years old, due to a car accident because of the weather condition leading to killing her instantly. He had moved to a different location with his father and sister and he went to a park to go look for friends.
The reasoning behind the fatal shot was initially Martin looked “suspicious”, Zimmerman then approached him and was allegedly attacked by Martin, which resulted in him having to defend himself. Although police instructed Zimmerman to not get out of his car, he failed to follow orders. Zimmerman was let off with no criminal charges. (http://www.cnn.com/2013/06/05/us/trayvon-martin-shooting-fast-facts/) “I am Arriell Sky Williams, I 'm eight years old.

Water & Blood When Auntie invited Brook, Mom and me to go with her and Trent to Noah's Ark Water Park, Dad demanded to know why he wasn’t invited. Brook said, “It’s, like, a girl’s thing,” and Dad responded, “Trent’s not a girl.” So here we all are, Dad driving Trent, Auntie, Mom, Brook and me up the Interstate Five. It’s not even four a.m., so we’re one of the only cars on the road. I’m in the very back, sitting to the left of Trent. Brook is sitting on Trent’s other side, sleeping with her stupid mouth open.
The author addressed a thirteen year old girl named Cari Lightner was walking to a carnival when she was struck and hit by a hit-and-run drunk driver and killed instantly. The author also talks about binge drinking and how if the legal drinking age is lowered, Americans would stop binge drinking;therefore, the conclusion is incorrect. She states that alcohol should be forbidden until 18-to 20 year olds precisely because they have a tendency to binge drink whether it is legal or illegal,and how college students get into a great deal of trouble due to binge drinking. Students endanger themselves and others. They sometimes even kill students.

There are many good arguments for both sides; however, it is clear that spanking is not necessary and can be avoided completely More people in the United States are beginning to realize how ineffective and dangerous spanking is. For example, it makes kids more violent and impairs prosocial behavior (206). Some people even go as far as calling spanking inhumane (2016). Also, many states have made it illegal to spank kids at school (206). However, most people still spank their children and would scoff at the idea of ever making this act illegal.
This could mean getting injured by a fired pellet. I used to own a few and there is a warning about wearing protective eye wear, but the user is not warned that using these guns could pose a threat to their life. In my neighborhood some teenage boys were playing army games with airsoft guns without orange tips. Another neighbor called the police thinking they were real guns. When the police confronted the boys they dropped their airsoft guns, but if they had not obeyed the situation could have turned violent.
Another example is about an 11 year old boy, named La’ Dorious Wylie. While him and his little sister were waiting for the bus, a car came speeding towards them. He pushed her out of the way. The car hit him, then drove away. The next day he died because of his injuries.
