Phrases that he uses in order to give anger are for example; “There are many problems”, “one interrogates”, “this time of heightened concern”, “Do we really want?”, and many more of phrases and questions with the same tone. The pathos used is not very persuasive because of the lack of evidence, and the lack of back ground information. For the most part, Coates uses pathos as his supporting evidence. We can see this in the beginning of the article when he makes the audience question recent police actions as just. He continues by mentioning the names of suspects whom were killed by the police with a little bit of background information to make the audience feel anger towards the situations.
He shows that he is crazy when he is talking to Rainsford about how hunting humans is perfectly fine. “‘Oh,’’ said the general, “it supplies me with the most exciting hunting in the world’’ (Connell 72). Zaroff shows that he is crazy during this scene because he is literally trying to explain why there is nothing wrong with killing humans. Lastly, Zaroff is also overconfident in the story. He is overconfident when he gives Rainsford more time cause he doesn’t think he stands a chance, also when he doesn't even think about the traps even though he has seen them before.
I think the part that most stuck out to me from Mr. Cannon's speech was when he said that he will always have added grief from what he experienced and a strong hatred for his abusers. I have never seen someone so courageous, he is brave enough to resist the urge to attack his abusers and is sending positive messages to people all across the country. That is a man who is strong, strong enough to turn his hatred into a passion to educate others. It could have been very easy for him to end up on the streets, pick fights with every cop that came his way, but instead he chose to be the bigger person. He just inspires me to not give up and to fight against your biggest
While bias is usually unavoidable and imagination is necessary to a historian, Schama makes use of his own beliefs too often and holds these beliefs above fact. His story about the murder disregarded important evidence that could lead to a completely different conclusion. He completely fabricated entire conversations that led directly to the murder in question. Though Schama did admit that his interpretation was “imaginative truth”, his credit as a historian can easily be called into question. His methods sway towards fiction and several historians, some within the documentary, cite this as an issue.
Being convicted of a crime that you had nothing to do with must be the most frustrating feeling in the world. Although I had already started a previous research paper, my interest and attention was caught when I viewed an in class video by the name of The Farm: Angola, USA. There were two individuals named George Crawford and Vincent Simmons whose case caught my attention. George Crawford and Vincent Simmons case sounded a little sketchy in my opinion, and the thought of them being wrongfully convicted came to my mind. Although my paper is not about them, their stories inspired me to research about wrongful convictions and exonerations.
This resulted in an illegal search where the evidence that was found would not be admissible in court. At the time, the LAPD was known to be racist, so when Detective Fuhrman denied using any racial slurs in the past 10 years, the defense looked into it. They found recordings of Fuhrman using the term “nigger” numerous times in interviews. This caused the jury to believe that Detective Fuhrman wasn’t a credible witness. Therefore, the jury rarely talked about him or the
Some deserve it because they non-repentance killers or to be serial killers while other should not deserve it because of the circumstances required them. Juveniles who killed people without any mercy should be treated as an adult and be given Juvenile Life Without Parole(JLWOP). For example, the murderer of Jennifer Jenkins’ pregnant sister and her husband. Jennifer describes, “[Jenkins’s Sister] begged for the life of her unborn child as [the killer] shot her. He reported to a friend, who testified at his trial, about his ‘thrill kill’ that he just wanted to ‘see what it would feel like to shoot someone’”(Jenkins).
Throughout the book Atticus faces many conflicts that he handles very well, making him the hero of the story. When responding to conflict, Atticus Finch shows to be a very responsible man. Atticus states “...if spitting in my face and threatening me saved Mayella Ewell one extra beating, that’s something i’ll gladly take. He had to take it out on somebody and i’d rather it be me than that household of children out there.” (Lee Page 218) Atticus knew that beacuse he had humiliated Bob Ewell in court that Bob would be very angry. He knew that
Geoffrey P. Albert of the University of South Carolina, Griffith University focuses his essay, “Toward a National Database of Officer-Involved Shootings”, on the lack of a trustworthy database to keep track of such events like officer involved shootings. In regards to police involved shootings, an initial problem continues to be the fact that reporting these cases is optional for a department. With that being said, it is often that departments fail to formally report these shootings. Which then provides for inaccuracy when trying to determine an average number of shootings. His work is much needed in the police department society especially because they are in desperate need of an accurate and consistent way to record the data the erupts behind
Police have faced armed white people that were threatening to shoot and the worst punishment they were given was arrest. While the criminals were yelling threats towards them, the police were trying to calm them down and get them to put down their weapons for even up to an hour long. There has been similar moments with non white people that were unarmed and causing no harm but still the police chose to shoot the offender for the slightest threat. The police need to keep everyone secure no matter what without considering a person 's ethnicity. Police are supposed to be heroes, grant us safety, and end the day with justice.
