Blacks are astronomically affected by the Police force, having them wonder if they are truly protected in this country. America is supposed to be the country of the free and brave, but police brutality has forced Blacks to view the police task negatively. This creates even more tension and division between each party which only increases the prejudice and violence police convey. Police brutality is a
Young innocent african american lives have been taken away because of police brutality. In America police brutality should be controlled and we should get justice for the lives that have been taken away and the killer is still not in jail for the innocent life they have taken. Many african americans have sadly been a victim of this police brutality, whether they were choked to death like Eric Garner or shot to death by an officer. Racism is still occurring and sadly it’s the people who should be protecting us, instead they are killing the people of different color. You’ll never know who’ll be next, we live in a country where sadly you have to tell someone to be safe before they leave, because you’ll never know if they’re even going to come back.
It's also a proven statistic by Havard University states that women are in fact scared of men. So, it may be both reasons as to why the woman ran away. Together as a society fears and stereotypes are created by those who feel attacked and terrorized by multiple people try to find a common denominator between all the people who hurt them, then a certain stereotype or fear is created to let everyone know that since three black men raped a girl
The quote stated above by Rodney King is an interpretation of how he feel towards police brutality. Rodney King was an African American male who was brutally beat by police officers when he refused to pull over. This incident showed that officers can be cruel and as a future criminal justice professional, it makes me question the understanding of ethical practices in the criminal justice system. Unlike Rodney King, the man in the video was not beat but he was tortured –twisting of his arm. Both Rodney King and the man in the video were helpless as they continued to scream for help.
The police were not too fond of the Black Panthers policing them and trying to intimidate them. They found that the Black Panthers violent ways were not justified. They found that the Black Panthers were the cause of gang violence that occurred in the ghettos and that the Black Panthers should be stopped. The FBI thought that the Black Panthers were trying to overthrow the US government and were being tracked. The FBI found that the Black Panthers violent tactics were not to help the Black community.
Today I want to tell you of the injustice of police brutality, the people it affects, and how just asking the right questions could make sure that police are punished for their crimes. BODY PARAGRAPH 1 Police brutality is a big problem in the United States. Police brutality is a misconduct when police use violence that is not necessary. This includes unjust shootings, which is when whoever was shot did not deserve to be shot because they either did nothing wrong or was complying with orders but was still shot.

This is biased-based policing and not permitted to happen in any of the states in America. Many of the areas that individuals yell racial profiling are destitute high crime areas, which typically have a large African American community. This would make it seem as though the police harassing African Americans, even though they are not. According to Dempsey and Forst, “biased-based policing is a form of discrimination that singles out people of racial or ethnic group due to the belief that these groups are more likely than others to commit certain types of crimes” (335). If one wants to look at this closer than one would need to go back to the UCR that shows that it is not African
This could be racist or discriminatory in nature, but it doesn’t provide adequate information to formulate a police officer is racists, but it does prove there should be more education and training within the academy level and more on-the-job (OJT) being performed once an officer arrived at their first department. The criminal justice system is not perfect and there is definite room for improvement on how the system treats minorities. Accomplishing this requires a collaboration with many law makers to ensure police officers are being properly trained to recognize the difference between performing their duties based on the situation of the crime being committed instead of performing their duties because the color of a person’s
