Racial profiling is used as a precaution to prevent potential greater dangers. The principal responsibility of any police officer is to keep communities safe. Police officers regard racial profiling as a form of “common sense generalizing", they “routinely judge the likelihood of the threat and act accordingly”. For example, if a cop receives a report of an armed robbery with no further information, the cop will utilize all the slight and indirect indications to come to a conclusion. The suspects are a 60-year-old nun and a black male with 50 speeding tickets.
For the past couple years there has been many injustice cases involving poor accusations of innocent victims. These poor accusations of innocent victims include shootings of innocent African Americans. One way to avoid these problems is the use of body cams. These tiny cameras have saved a Police Officer 's job, justified an innocent victim, and even has saved a person 's life. Recently Police Departments have been using these such body cameras and have seen significant results.
I strongly believe the fast pace rap song by J-Jon named C.O.P short for Criminals of Permission is a great example of a song to describe significant stories of the 21st century. It is really unfortunate to hear all these horrifying stories of police brutally all over the United states. For example Mike brown’s or Sandra Bland’s. I believe these stories should not just be skimmed ,but deeply looked at so incidents like these don’t happen again. In the song J-Jon describes how even though cops wear uniforms and badges they are still equal and they should protect citizens instead of seriously injuring them or killing them describes how people should feel protected not in fear.
One of the biggest issues that called my attention is the presence of racism in the movie. Even though that presence did not surprise me, it was for me very obvious and very representative of the “American” society. For that reason, I am going to comment about the appearance of racism in the movie Finding Forrester. The first scene that really called my attention is the one in which a white man appears with his BMW and prejudices Jamal and black people in general.
In Conclusion, police officers are supposed to treat everyone the same no matter their skin pigment but police discrimination/racism will never go extinct In all honesty, police officers are going to continue to composed policies to target African Americans. Also they are going to keep blacks off the street by continuing to slay us off or by throwing us in confine. I have told you my opinion on police’s treatment toward blacks, so do you suppose police officers treat African Americans like other people from separate races?
Although, the decision tested the true meaning of the 4th amendment, it also provided clarity as well as security for the men and women who serve in law enforcement. The ruling allowed law enforcement to legally “Frisk” a subject, thereby providing law enforcement officers the opportunity to protect themselves. Furthermore, it is through these reasonable stops and pat downs that thousands of arrests are made for illegal activity. For example, the New York Police Department through the increase in police enforcement, along with what is referred to as “Stop and Frisk”, saw a 80% reduction in the homicide rate, therefore protecting and saving thousands of lives through this court
To start making the news a more inclusive arena, O’Brien first urged journalists to be careful with their words while reporting because many of them are “non-descriptive and racially charged;” after all, what exactly is a thug, she pointed out, someone who is looting a store or someone who is setting a car on fire? She then asked that reporters give everyone a voice and report on the full story of all races, because Latinos and blacks also do good
Another example, (document A) gangsters, racketeers, and all their friends were happy about prohibition. Therefore, there had to be something wrong with the law. Crime was so high Americans were completely against prohibition.
Police officers patrolling the area assumed he was breaking into the residence and arrested him.(Racial Profiling) Even though we are a very open society, many people are still profiled just because of their race at many shopping centers, airport, by police and in many other situation and many other people. Some people believe racial profiling does not exist anymore. They are wrong because racial profiling has become more common since the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001, especially toward Arabs and Muslims. (Racial Profiling) 9/11 was a day in history that nobody could forget but even with this we should not use racial profiling as a way of security.
From what I’ve researched 31.9% of African-Americans were shot and killed while unarmed. People that think just because they a badge and a uniform saying “Police”, they can do whatever they want. There are a lot of other good Officers though, in fact I know some. But they don’t think they’re above the law. It can be used with racial profiling.
Police brutality has been one of the most dangerous issues that have been happening around the united states. A solution that has been talked about worldwide is body cameras on police officers. This solution would be very successful in stopping or decreasing police brutality The one that would be successful is the body cameras because the station would know what is going on at all times. How this solution is better is because this solution of body cameras would decrease the amount of crimes caused by the police and this would be beneficial for the police academy to have body cameras on the officers at all times. For example, the police at ASU now have body cameras on them at all times,"It 's just a process of us bringing the ASU police department
The editorial also appeals to the audience’s basic value of life, equality, and justice. In the editorial the police commissioner for the city, states that, “police owned tonight.” This was after a protest in Ferguson, where police where caught using excessive force that was completely unnecessary. This appeals to unlawful justice because it was a peaceful protest that turned bad because of how the police handled the situation and treated the protesters.
The number of shootings involving law enforcement officers and unarmed African American men has increased in the United States in recent months to the point where there is social unrest in one particular community: the African-American community. Groups such as Black Lives Matter have been created in the recent past to create tranquility between the police and the people of the Unites States. If media accounts of these incidents are accurate and these recent trends are taken together, the country is on the tipping point of a deadly unprecedented racial divide. It is safe to say that the majority of Americans would agree that the Civil Rights Movement achieved many of its goals, most would also agree that racism and racial profiling
Since African Americans are twice as likely to be unarmed when killed by law enforcement, this could give them some form of reassurance. In May of 2015, the Orlando Police Department did a trial of using body cameras on their officers. During this time they found that there was a 53% drop of “use-of-force-incidents” and most officers did not feel hampered from wearing the camera. Body cameras will not stop police brutality instantaneously, but it will definitely help over
They did not even think it was bad anymore because their state of mind was saying other people are here so it is okay, but in reality lynchings are very brutal and should not be seen as entertainment (Beitler). After listening to the Radio Diary I conclude that the people were describing how harsh lynchings were, they also viewed it as nothing but just an event. People were so caught up in mob mentality, thinking everyone else is watching so it is okay (“Strange Fruit: Anniversary of a Lynching”). Both articles about mob mentality showed that it is the thinking of a group of people who think it is okay to do bad things together such as causing a riot at a sporting event all together (Smith; Edmonds). In conclusion mob mentality is very bad, do not get caught up with bad events just because other people are doing it.
