Throughout history, disputes and tensions between law enforcement officials and communities of minorities have endured hostility and violence between each other. Racial profiling has become a “hot topic” for researchers as well as for politicians and by now it is likely that most citizens are at least aware of the common accusations of racial bias pitted against law enforcement (Cochran & Warren, 2013). Communities of color are being discriminated against and racially profiled by white police officers for any suspicion of criminal activities. It has been widely assumed by policy makers and citizens alike that allegations of racial profiling are mostly associated with the policing practices of white officers and their treatment of racial and ethnic minorities (Cochran & Warren, 2013). Also, individuals of minority descent will certainly recognize that they are being racially profiled during a stop that is being conducted by a white police officer.
Hate Crime is a “criminal offense against a person or property motivated in whole or in part by an offender's bias against a race, religion, disability, sexual orientation, ethnicity, gender, or gender identity.” If an African American commits the same crime as an Caucasian it is more likely for the black person to be charged and arrested due to the racial issues we have today. There are many pros and cons towards the issue of racial crime, but hate crime is still a very difficult issue for our country to overcome. In order to overcome the issue of hate crime it would require changing legislation, public and police attitudes. A greater population of blacks live in condensed civil areas than whites. Dense urban areas are more policed than suburban or rural areas.
This is what started the Blue Lives Matter movement, a movement for police officers to be protected. Due to a spike in police deaths the government imposed harsher laws against assaulting, harming, or killing a police officers. The BLM community is concerned because they feel like they are taking a step backwards in the relationships between the community and its people with the local police officers. Lots of people are saying that the movement is unjust because they believe that “All Lives Matter,” but the movement is just simply pointing out that African Americans are being wrongfully targeted and killed. The movement is trying to prove that all of our lives should be equal not one life is better than the
The court of public opinion overturns the very concept of the rule of law, so it is no wonder that the court of public opinion is often described as little more than a modern lynch mob. The consideration of what is just requires a strong meaning of the justice. The differential meaning between procedural justice and substantive justice is that substantive justice examines the outcome of the dispute and seeks that the correct outcome has been reached. Comparatively procedural justice as discussed in Cooperation in Groups: Procedural Justice, Social Identity and Behavioural Engagement by Tyler and
Destiny and her crew began their process of making things look a little less guilty on Carter 's part. They started with removing any things with Carter 's prints on them such as the knife for instance. After removing his prints from the murder weapon they cleaned Carter 's apartment and relieved it from the dead woman 's body. Destiny and her team decided to move the body to Wendy’s house and set the scene up to look like an break in robbery gone bad. Whoever had framed Carter was a professional and they couldn’t let Carter be on the loose walking through streets by himself, so they took him into the office to do some questioning of
American culture sees police officers as violent, unethical people after shootings. Although not all all people see police officers that way. Over time people and police officers have had conflicts, but recent conflicts have become more violent. Violence against police officers have become an issue because officers have stated that they feel unsafe at work. The society I live in has made police officers look bad.
In America, people are allow to use gun, around 93 americans are killed with gun on an average day in America. Thesis: (Tell listeners what action you want them to take—OR—how you want them to think.) Gun caused violent, we must banned gun and stop using them for forever! Qualification: (Tell listeners your personal experience with your topic, making you qualified to affect their opinions about it.) The mass shooting in Paris, November 2015 is one of the most horrible terrorist attacks I had ever knew.
Words do not directly lead to violence, in fact words are often used to settle disputes in a more constructive way than violence. One’s inability to accept the views of another person is not the fault of the latter, but the former. Fighting words can be qualified as words that are not necessary to communication of information or opinions. The Fighting Words Doctrine allows the government to favoritize and discriminate citizens, which is exactly the opposite of what the First Amendment is all about. The First Amendment keeps the government from limiting speech, especially unpopular opinions because the views of the minority are just as important as the views of the
The American police force today has one of the toughest jobs in the country. Between the physical demands and mental toughness, they police also have to deal with the continuous negative onslaught from the media. It seems that in today’s world, there has been a war on the police in the United States and has resulted in countless deaths of police officers in the past couple years. The media and members of protest groups claim police brutality and record every single moment of any incident to blame the police for excessive use of force and ruin their careers. However, in many incidents, officers wear body cameras to counter-act the bystanders.

As the New York Times article (Williams, 2016) highlighted, “anti- black disparity persists”. Perhaps the way some officials are trained, by being taught that every interaction is life or death, paired with implicit bias is why community relations continue to be estranged. The officers that are intended to protect citizens repeatedly enter situations in a way that suggests every interaction will lead to a standoff between citizens and an officer; as we can see, officers typically enter situations with minority individuals in this manner more so than whites. We are waging an individual’s life on what officers “believe” to be true during the heat of the moment, despite knowing the fact that when individuals are overcome by fear their perception of chaos and peril heightens (Neuhauser, 2016). In a video done by the Close Quarter Defense (Neuhauser, 2016), officers that participated in an attack simulation couldn’t accurately recall the actions they displayed during the simulation and were startled to realize the situation they had originally perceived to be dangerous was not as dire as they had remembered.
When we say that Black Lives matter, it doesn’t mean that black people lives are more important than other people’s lives. Black lives matter just as much as other lives, but black lives are more in danger when it comes to police interaction. During this year and previous years, there has been numerous incidents of police assaulting or killing black men, women, and even teenagers. Some people say that “All Lives Matter”, which is true because life is a precious thing. But when it comes to interacting with police officers, “Black Lives Matter”, black lives are in danger during interaction with the police because society treats black people different from other races.
The police could search your cellphone without a warrant before June 25, 2014, while you were under lawful arrest, prosecutors could use the evidence against you. Warrentless cellphone searches incident to arrest were legal in California prior to June 2014. Example: In 2013, Paul is arrested on a traffic violation. Police search his mobile phone (without a warrant) at the time of his arrest. They find child pornography images among his digital photos.
The parties in Beaumont II were the same as the parties in Beaumont I. Following briefing by the parties, through a March 11, 2015 Order the Hearing Officer dismissed Beaumont II, finding that the issue alleged was a failure by the District to abide by the August 28, 2014 Decision and the Hearing Officer lacks authority to enforce its own orders.
