Guns are dangerous, but so is every weapon. Even if we outlawed every weapon in the United States, there would still be Murder. There was 89 murders in California, 82 murders in Texas, and 32 murders in New York, caused by a person using only their bare hands (FBI: UCR, 2016). We are willing to discuss banning guns for “killing people”.
In this essay I will talk about the investigative techniques that was used to help identify the Zodiac killer. Out of the several eyewitness of the Zodiac killer, most described him as being around 5’8 and having a real beefy build, weighing around 200 pounds. The eyewitnesses say he had short brown curly hair, and that he looked about 26-30 years old in 1969. In the taxicab shooting there was three teenage eyewitnesses who watched the shooting happen from their bedroom.
Michael Brown’s shooting involves a racial tension between blacks and whites since Brown was unarmed and surrendered. In Ferguson, the majority of people are African Americans, and the majority of police officers are white. On the night of the shooting incident, Brown was walking home and confronted by Wilson because Wilson thought Brown was suspicious. There was a struggle between Brown and Wilson. According to Brown’s friend, Wilson started the fight.
“Two spotters waited by phones” across the street from the seen, they were supposed to call when the say Moran about to enter the building. Due to a stolen police car being at the seen he never went in. The police entered “Eight minutes later, after loud rattling noises and what sounded like trucks backfiring” the officers told the seven men to face the wall and put their hands up.

While Biggies friends James and Caesar was in the car with him. They only witnesses were his friends James and Caesar they could provide the best description of the shooter.

Because there is no definite proof that Leonard Peltier ever murdered the two FBI agents on Pine Ridge Reservation in 1975, he should not be imprisoned for the crime. He did not own the pick-up truck that the agents claimed to be following on the day of the murder, nor can it be proven that he owned the gun that killed them. The two agents, Williams and Coler, were tracking a man that had stolen a pair of boots and were in unmarked cars when they drove onto Jumping Bull Ranch. Witnesses claim that they heard shots fired, and later saw a red pick-up truck fleeing the scene.
It had been reported that an 18 year old African American had been shot dead by a police officer under reasonable suspicion. So where in the line drawn when it comes to a police officer because the 18 year old had been unarmed but had been in a wrestle with the officer before he had been shot. This give great incite on how far and officer should be able to go. The Gazette (Montreal), March 16, 2007 Friday, NEWS;
It is very difficult to argue that the situation would have turned out differently if one of the concertgoers would have opened fire using a concealed firearm (Millhiser). Supporters of guns also believe that mental illness is the main cause of both mass shootings and firearm suicides. Michael Stone, a physiatrist at Columbia University who studies mass shooters and their personal histories reported that twenty-two percent of the mass shooters were mentally ill, which was only fifty-two out of the 235 killers (Lopez). House Speaker Paul Ryan declined to support the proposal to create a special committee to study gun violence in early February 2018. He claimed, “This is not the time to jump to some conclusions.”
In general, police holds the authority to maintain the safety and prosperity of the citizens. In fact, there are a lot of misconduct done by the police officers particularly towards black people, which led to the issue of police brutality. According to American Journal Public Health, “Black men are three times more likely to be killed by legal intervention than white men” (CNN). Recalling the incident of Oscar Grant, when he was on his way back from San Francisco to Oakland after the New Year’s day, he was fatally shot by BART police officer, Johannes Mehserle, because the officer mistakenly thought that Grant was reaching out for his gun to the fact that Grant was unarmed (Wikipedia). Under this circumstance, this signifies that police officer treats black people with hostility.
We should be doing more than that they should be tried as an adult because they are killing innocent people and that others are saying that they are kids, but really most kids who kill someone knew what they were doing that they have thought about killing people. Some of the reasons why they should be tried as an adult is because here in America itself a problem cause everyone can get a weapon so easily and kids are very curious, so they just grab the weapon thinking it 's a toy and can just kill someone. Like in the article “On Punishment and Teen Killers” by Jennifer Jenkins, it’s
Rahm Emanuel Fires Fall Guy in the Laquan McDonald Shooting The American people have expressed their outrage over the shooting of unarmed black teen Laquan McDonald by a white Chicago police officer. The outrage was not just that Officer Van Dyke shot McDonald 16 times as the teen was calmly walking down the street, but that the police department and city officials tried to cover the incident up. There was a police car dash cam that caught the whole incident on film, but the recording was hidden away for over a year. The nearby Burger King had its footage erased by fellow officers.
In 2005, Carl Bryan was stopped in Coronado, California for a seat belt violation. Bryan had already been stopped that same morning on a speeding charge, at this point he was upset with himself. Because of this, he was hitting the steering wheel and yelling expletives at himself. He complied with the officer, when he requested to turn the radio down and pull to the curb. The following part is where Bryan and the officer 's story is different.
Reid, 36 was shot seven times when pulled over for not coming to a complete stop at a stop sign, resulting in his death. Verdict for the two police officers: No indictment. Police are not being held accountable for their wrongful crimes and abuse of authority towards blacks. According to Mapping Police Violence, only 3 out of the 210 killings of unarmed black people resulted in officers being charged with a crime. This shows justice is not being served for people of
Literacy Narrative Everything 's an argument. When unarmed, 17 year old Trayvon Martin was shot and killed by a neighborhood watch for looking suspicious with skittles in his pocket; similarly, when unarmed, 18 year old Michael Brown was shot and killed by a police officer for stealing a pack of cigars, and when other countless unarmed black people have been shot and killed in America, the argument has been whether race affected these situations. Although many still don’t see the social inequality minorities in America still face, the reality for these groups is heartbreaking. August 9th, 2014, social media sites were flooded with reports of the shooting of Michael Brown.
When they realize there is no one else around, they freeze. Police brutality is becoming a huge problem in America because, police don’t know when to pull the trigger therefore needing better training, which would then cause innocent people to stop dying, and police are supposed to protect not kill. First, police need better training so they know when to actually pull the trigger or not. Sometimes, police think that you are armed just based on the color of your skin. Watching the news has made this more apparent than ever, white policemen are killing black teens,
