Houston also suffered from the moving, tired of getting used to new schools. She says, “In Ocean Park my teacher felt cold and distant. I was confused by all the moving and was having trouble with the classwork, but she would never help me out. She would have nothing to do with me. This was the first time I had felt outright hostility from a Caucasian” (Houston
Harris works and lives in the inner-city streets where the drug dealers overrun the city. Harris’ personal beliefs and sense of justice are a result of his life experiences with criminals and drug dealers. His ideas of justice and sense of right and wrong coupled with the social factors of drugs and crime in his community contribute to Harris’ unethical conduct. For instance, the temptations are always present in the circumstances when raiding any drug dealer activity. Drug dealers possess a lot of money and drugs, such as the Training Day movie, in which money and drugs influence Harris, so he acts criminalized.
Mayella Ewell is used in the story to comprehend the poorer class of people in the story and their struggles through the 1960s.

Mayella spends most of her time all alone or with the children, has no friends, and rarely leaves the house. When Atticus asked had she any friends, she seemed not to know what he meant, then she thought he was making fun of her. When Atticus treats Mayella respectfully, she thinks he is sassing her.
Introduction The term prostitution often brings up a lot of feelings in conversation. We get this image in our heads about the young heroin addict walking the streets at nighttime, which is an outdated description that does more harm than good. Not only does a large portion of sex work take place online but prostitutes vary greatly in gender, age and social status, according to a study conducted at the University of Birmingham for the article Debates around sex industry based on 'sexist stereotypes '. Enforcing laws to restrict these sort of exchanges is commonly accepted as a good way to protect people from the industry but in what way does criminalization actually help? Is the threat of being arrested larger than the threat of not affording food for yourself or your children?
Her house was away from everything, everyone and even when her husband was home it was like she was still alone. Mrs. Hale knew that they didn’t have children and she knew how Mr. Wright was towards his wife, but she didn’t go visit due to the fact she knew how unhappy the home was. The women begin to understand why Mrs. Wright murdered her husband. On page 595, Mrs. Hale says “We live so close together and we live far apart. We all go through the same things- it’s all just a different kind of the same thing”.
Most of these girls come from broken homes where parents have given up or are absent; they’ve also dropped from school. Quérouil also states that “contrary to their male counterparts, who fight to gain control of a council estate block, those girls get into fights far from their homes and without any financial motivation” (2012). Where the boys try to keep low profiles especially for the police, those girls “want to be noticed, want to be heard, so that’s why they cause a ruckus” (Quérouil, 2012). And this sudden rise of female gangs is noticed in alarming numbers: the number of minor girls involved in criminal offences grows three times faster than the boys’ (Quérouil, 2012). But there is a deeper issue there, which can be noticed especially when the girls say that “violence comes from where we grew up.
Talking to kids about drugs can be difficult. Having to explain why drugs are bad for them and why they should not consume them can be hard. I have seen from my own experience kids from ages seven through twelve seeing people on drugs. They have seen them in public spaces. For example, my eight and twelve year old nieces and I went to 7-eleven to buy some chips, then we noticed a lady screaming and walking back and forth outside of 7-eleven.
Some woman does not care if their kids at home with no babysitter or have any food at home. If you are a mother and have that as a job, imagine what kind of example you are giving your child. As years go by your child will end up not caring about school or anything, he/she will end up robbing, selling drugs, etc. Would you like it if your child had a job as a prostitute, selling their body to older man? No right.
The most important lesson I learned was how destructive drug addiction can be on an individual’s life. An example of this is from an Intervention episode about Wes and Lise. It was heartbreaking to watch their lives slowly be dominated by illegal drugs. This was exacerbated by the fact that Lise was aware how drugs were taking control of her life and knew that it was damaging to their children’s lives. This helped me humanize drug addicts because in society, drug addicts are miscreants who care not for the livelihoods of other people; only for drugs.
