Shaw rejects this perspective because minimalists believe that the purpose of criminal law is to accumulate and respect the rights of people, which means they do not agree with maximalist’s perspective on criminal law. Maximalists’ perspective is that the purpose of criminal law is not to rehabilitate, but rather punish convicts for their immoral actions. Shaw also rejects this perspective because punishment does not take future efforts of criminals to be morally sound into
t mean go out and get violent; but at the same time, you should never be nonviolent unless you run into some nonviolence" (X 360). X is subliminally telling his audience that they haven 't run into nonviolence, but that the horrors being committed against them, because of the color of their skin, are violent. He is ironically saying that he is not telling them to go out and be violent but that they must fight violence with violence in effort of
It would be simplistic to pin police brutality and racial violence on racist actors - that would imply that institutional racism could be remedied by removing such officials from the system. However, acknowledging these ingrained biases and understanding their impact is crucial to recognizing that the system is itself inherently biased, and that a neutral and objective institution of law enforcement can only be created when the emphasis is placed not on racists, but on the construct of racism itself. Ingrained racial biases clearly impede rational decision-making
“Additionally, the boards often found police unwilling to cooperate with their investigations due to a desire to protect their fellow officers- a phenomenon known as the “blue wall of silence”(Police Brutality.) The police department made an effort to hire more of different nationality, in order to be more sufficient. This will help lower the number of police brutality on Africa American and Hispanic
People may argue against Jamison by saying that she challenge the common sense that people should be responsible for what they have done. In the other words, if one committed crime, he deserve the correspondence punishment under United State legal system. When the correspondence punishment happen to be incarceration, he should be incarcerated. This argument is weak because the fact that Charlie does not deserve incarceration in Beckley does not necessary leads to the generally conclusion that people should not be responsible for what they have done. What Jamison wants to argue is that people should feel empathy towards those inmates.
The elimination of any potential grey area creates a stark contrast between a supposed hero and a supposed villain, a depiction that is often not only quite erroneous but also unfair. Specifically, although the exclusion of “state terror” may make discussion easier (Gage 78), it also hinders important conversation with regards to government oppression and potentially justified retaliation on the part of “rebels” (Gage 78). With this limitation of discussion comes about an inherent stifling of questioning, particularly with regards to the status quo. This, thus, enables not only violent actions of the state to be largely left out of discussion, but also violent actions that encourage the status quo and reactionary sentiment. Right-wing violence that seeks to protect a status quo receives less reaction and intervention from governments than left-wing violence that seeks change (Gage 89).
The first statement was about neutrality. “Neutrality helps the oppressor, never the victim.” This means that being neutral is never in the best interest of the victim. It means that for means that for the oppressor, neutrality is good, but the victim cannot be satisfied with it.
The threat could be verbal, as long as it puts the intended victim in an immediate fear or physical harm. However offensive words without an accompanying threat of immediate threat, does not justify the use of force in self-defense. Sometimes self-defense is justified even if the perceived aggressor did not actually mean the perceived victim any harm (“Self-Defense Overview-
The most important weakness of this policy is that it offers grounds for dirty cops to utilize force illegally to pursue selfish personal agendas that are not in the interests of the public. A police officer can use deadly force and allege that the use of force was necessary when indeed it was not and since there are no effective ways to measure such allegations such officers will end up going scot free. The police officers are supposed to be each other’s keepers and prevent their colleagues from misusing the authority given by the policy while officers who break the law can be charged in court. However, this is not guarantee that such authority will not be used illegally. Another weakness is that cases of mistaken identity can lead to harm to innocent civilians who are suspected of being
Now, the easiest way of defying this position through the dichotomy of theory and practice is simply cheating. Arguing, “the unrestricted enjoyment of freedom of expression is not applicable to our realities” is equivalent to saying, “you are theoretically right, but our original practices do not present any luxury to enjoy freedom fully.” Henceforth, the ideal thesis of the freedom of expression remains untouched while its status of effectiveness is damaged as inapplicable to social reality. At this point, the theory is simultaneously made capable of responding
Peaceful or violent resistance? If one day you found a discriminating law you have to do something to change. To do that you have different types the violent and the nonviolent one. One type of peaceful resistance is the civil disobedience.
Richard Wright was born after the Civil War but before the Civil Rights Movement. If Wright were writing an autobiography titled “Black Boy”, today in 2017, about a black boy growing up in the United States, he would write about white people horribly expressing racism against African Americans, the brutality police officers perform on blacks, and the positively protesting movement, Black Lives Matter, which people engage in fighting for the rights of African Americans. During the time period of “Black Boy”, whites were awfully expressing racism towards African Americans. They would discriminate, despise, and violently mistreat them. If Richard Wright would be writing an autobiography about the life of a black boy today in 2017, he would write about whites frightfully expressing racism towards African Americans.
From the 1900s through present day, equality along with how to handle injustice situations has been hard. People all over the world struggle with being looked down upon or having rights that have taken away because of racism, which can cause violence anywhere. Martín Luther King Jr., Nelson Mandela and Mohandas have had plenty experience. In order for non-violence to be successful, the movement needs to have discipline, courage, then leadership because how you handle a situation is how you eliminate the problem, discrimination. When it comes to non-violence discipline is the first virtue to learn.
