There has been so many cases of law officials attacking and even killing young black males based on their ‘suspicions’ of illegal and violent activities. For example: Trayvon Martin, Michael Brown, Eric Garner and many others have all fallen victim to racial profiling by the police. Another example the movie ‘Fruitvale Station’ which was based on a true story, some black males had an altercation on the train and got off when the police were alerted. Although, they were guilty, all the police saw were black people who immediately fit their profile of crime suspects. So, without question, they were arrested and one was shot and died on the spot.

Police brutality is one of the most serious human rights violations in the United States. In the past five years the police have murdered and seriously injured unarmed and in some circumstances innocent people and have made people all over the world upset even resulting in the start of movements such as “#BlackLivesMatter and #HandsUpDon’tShoot”. Unreasonable shootings, fatal beatings, brutal choke holds, and excessive force has been some of the recent cases of police brutality in America. The problem is that more cases go unreported, than the ones that actually are. I believe police brutality is a crime protected by the government.
However, Hanzha decided to stop aiding Suprunyuk and Sayenko after two armed robberies even stating "If I had known the atrocities that they were capable of committing, I would have not gone near them at gunpoint."

There was also the Eric Garner quandary in 2014 who was choked to death by police.Also, there was the John Crawford accident in 2014 who was on the phone with his mother of his kids when he was shot and killed by police for being suspected as a dangerous shooter. These incidents have led to very damaging riots like the one in Ferguson, Missouri because Michael Brown was shot and killed after bullying a store clerk. A much more recent episode of rioting took place in Baltimore, Maryland after the death of Freddie Gray who was manhandled and not given medical assistance after being brutalized. During one account where an officer attacked a black man, the department stated that it had nothing to do with race but the man feels differently. Across the nation and all over social media many have given their opinions about these issues with the majority saying that the government really needs to step in and help the situation.

A boy was discovered wandering the streets drugged and confused, he was 14-year-old Konerak Sinthasomphone. The two women that found him called 911; however Dahmer chased after his victim and stated to the police that he was his 19-year-old boyfriend.

Later that same night, Dahmer killed and dismembered Sinthasomphone and kept his skull as a souvenir (¨Jeffrey Dahmer¨).
Because of all these issues taking place, many in society are becoming psychologically impacted never forgetting the events they have experienced. For example, current state-citizen tensions surrounding police killings of unarmed black youth and the failure to hold officers responsible for unlawful actions has roots in centuries of sanctioned violence against black bodies. Coates stated, “In America, it is traditional to destroy the black body—it is heritage” (Coates, 103). His searing recitation of Prince Jones’s death supports the claim. In Baltimore, Ferguson, and across the US, white police officers consistently are implicated and often exonerated in cases of racial violence against young blacks.
