This way the defendant and their attorney would be able to see if they actually have enough evidence to win the case in court. This would element most of the innocent people pleading guilty out of fear of long prison sentences like what Mr. Gampero did. The second thing I would change is that if the Judges or prosecutors make treats to put someone in prison for a long period of time if they do not take the plea then the case must be thrown out of be tried by a different jurisdiction. Like what happened with the OC snitch
Racism To Kill A Mockingbird was, and still is, a book read by many. There are so many things to learn from Harper Lee as she has written a classic American novel taking us through times and matters we’ve never lived ourselves before. Scout, the main character, is a young girl who as the book goes on learns many life lessons. Her father, Atticus Finch, is a lawyer in Maycomb County.
Female arrestees acknowledged as having drug problems are more probable than men to have received drug treatment, spend more money on drugs, report recent use of more harmful drugs and are more often referred to a drug rehabilitation unit (Trueman, 2015). Violent crimes are often committed by women as well. Violence is most common when the victim is male, since he may resist more than a woman (Pollock, 2002). Half of the women incarcerated for homicide or murder related charges are serving time for that offense and that offense was their only offense. Research also suggests that after the arrest, women are more likely than men to be warned and are less likely to have their cases be charged.
Angela Davis in her book, Are Prisons Obsolete?, argues for the overall abolishment of prisons. Amongst the significant claims that support Davis’ argument for abolition, the inadequacy of prison reforms stands out as the most compelling. Reform movements truthfully only seek to slightly improve prison conditions, however, reform protocols are eventually placed unevenly between women and men. Additionally, while some feminist women considered the crusade to implement separate prisons for women and men as progressive, this reform movement proved faulty as female convicts increasingly became sexually assaulted. Following the theme of ineffectiveness, the reform movement that advocated for a female approach to punishment only succeeded in strengthening
In her early years she would avoid her father as he was abusive and was the leader of their family. When Nannie was seven, she was a passenger on a train that came to a halt. She hit her head, then proceeded to have migraines,blackouts, as well as depression. In the sixth grade, she dropped out due to the lack of family support throughout the school. As a child before reaching her middle teens, Nancy was molested by some men from her area.
To state the obvious it would have been nerve racking to lead a male-only French army into war as the opposite gender (which back in medieval times did not receive the proper respect). During Joan’s trial she faced a court of male judges who happened to be much more educated than her, this made the case unfair for Joan as the opposition had a advantage. In her trial Joan was the only person defending herself as no one dared to help her. This is impressive considering she was only seventeen at the time and had composed herself well enough to bring her case to court. In 1431 aged just 19 years Joan was found guilty and burned at the stake.
Eleanor Roosevelt (1884-1962) was a blond caucasian female who was born into an affluent family. Her relationship with her parents were strained and dysfunctional. She never received love and affection from her mother, but conditional usefulness when she served her purpose.

Despite the allegations made against Trump, over fifty-nine thousand people voted for Trump, showing the lack of importance sexual assault has in our society. The dismissive nature of our country to sexual assault dehumanizes women the same way we see in
Joe Weiler Dr. Ripley College Reading and Writing 03/21/17 The Call-Out of the White Man: Rhetorical Analysis of Susan B. Anthony’s Speech After Being Convicted of Voting Susan B. Anthony was one of the biggest leaders of the women’s rights movement because many men during the 19th century believed that women were not strong or smart enough to vote in government elections which is why women were not granted suffrage until August 18th, 1920. In Anthony’s speech that she gave in 1872, after being accused of voting in the presidential election, she argues that all of American citizens should have the right to vote and not just the white man. Anthony’s speech made several logical, ethical and emotional appeals which is what made her empowering and memorable speech set the tone for the women’s rights movement for decades to come.
In other words Mayella had little power in her class. People didn’t respect her because of her class, and you can tell Mayella is not used to being respected because in court Atticus calls Mayella “ma’am and miss” (DBQ Mayella, 15) and Mayella gets mad

On August 8, 2009, Sonia Maria Sotomayor became the first justice of Hispanic descent to be seated on the United States Supreme Court. Her upbringing in a Puerto Rican household in the Bronx, significantly shaped her decision making first on the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York (1991-1997) and later, on the United States Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit (1997 - 2009). Today, Sotomayor continually advocates for the basic rights of Americans; this is demonstrated in two of her recent opinions: (1) her 58 page dissent of the Schuette v. Coalition to Defend Affirmative Action (2014) decision, in which the Court decided, 6-2, that states could prohibit the use of affirmative action at public universities; and (2) and her opinion on the Brumfield v. Cain (2015) which
Despite the Hispanic princess conservancy, it true that the media has everything to do with the problem, since it frustrating knowing that each “ethnic” group must wait their turn to have some sort of representation on Television but in a positive way. According to Raul A. Reyes a CNN news writer, Latinos get nothing but negative attention “A 2012 study by the National Hispanic Media Coalition found that TV shows and films often contributed to the public 's negative perception of Latinos. In fact, the Coalition found that the top three ways that non-Latinos viewed Latinos in the media were as criminals, gardeners and maids.” Meaning that instead of providing positive inspiring views about Latinos the media tends to do the opposite. In other

Donald Trump just like other nominees criticize Carly Fiorina for a small mistake in the company when really that 's not even the case. Yes, Fiorina had previously bought Compaq for Hewlett Packard but she doubled the size of the company, raised the growth and cash rate by far, and the innovation for the business raised drastically. She may have produced money a different way then planned but it spiked business for all of Hewlett Packard (Tampa Bay Times Politifact Web Page). Carly Fiorina has never been in office before but she has strong arguments to support the issues she believes in.
