Trayvon Martin was shot and killed by George Zimmerman, a neighborhood watch coordinator for the gated community where Martin was living. Martin was, as in the case with Michael Brown, completely unarmed, and his executioner was released and didn’t face any criminal charges. Unfortunately, that just buttresses the fact that black people have an inferior role in the American community. It’s not simple to fix a problem that isn’t official, but rather known as a national benchmark. Ishmael Sistrunk considers how to patch up the bleeding wound between black men & the compelling policemen in his article titled “Walking while black: Michael Brown, black men and white police officers”.
AFFIRMED.” Taser International Inc. cannot be held liable, based on the information available at the time, for not issuing warnings that repeated exposure to its product could lead to death, said an appellate court, in upholding dismissal of a 2004 wrongful death lawsuit. To conclude, I support the decision of the courts in the case of Rosa vs Taser International, Inc. Under tort law, strict liability the plaintiff needed to prove the defendant’s product was responsible for the death of their son. Taser International Inc. was able to prove their product met the safety standards and documentation, with the taser gun. A key point noted by the court also affirmed, the risk of lactic acidosis was not knowable in
Tim sees his brother, who gave up his everything to enlist, be killed by the soldiers he had fought alongside for three years. The allegation against Sam saying that he stole his own cattle made no sense to Tim, but it showed him that war is not fair. Tim saw how ruthless war could make men, causing them to be power hungry and kill to keep their ego strong. The Patriots were no exception to war’s dominant power, and after Sam’s death, Tim leaned towards
Sean Bell, Daniel Shaver, Walter Scott, John Crawford, Michael Brown, Ezell Ford, Raupheal Thomas, Tamir Rice, Nicholas Thomas; all these men have something in common: they were unarmed, shot and killed by police. All these officers were let off due to typical excuses such as self-defense, raised suspicion, or probable cause, without a single form of punishment. Law Enforcement, more specifically police officers, should be held accountable and receive reasonable punishment for their misbehavior and wrongdoings. These men and women hold such authority and responsibility that should not be abused whatsoever. These men and women are responsible for the safety and wellbeing of the community they protect and serve.
Once the police heard that two black men had done the shooting, they instantly became bias. The first two men they found that fit the criteria of the killers were automatically guilty to the police because of their race. There was very minimal evidence that led them to believe Carter and Artis were guilty, yet they spent their whole life in jail for it anyway. Habeus Corpus was the biggest miscarriage of justice in this case, beyond a reasonable doubt. The police had no reason to arrest or detain the men, all they had was the colour of their car and the colour of their

One particular instance was when he talked to J.T.’s mom Ms. Mae. While talking to her, Sudhir was very adamant about asking her all about J.T. and how she felt about his gang and drug life. Basically all his interviews with the residents show him hustling. He came in knowing the questions he wanted answered.
Because the people being profiled are thought to be up to no good, excessive force and unreasonable tactics somehow become justified and necessary. When Rankine writes, “the officer’s knee pressing into my collarbone…” one would think that this officer had a reason for being so rough on this person (107). We see that in the end, “…no reason was needed…”, to forcibly pull someone out of a car and handcuff them (107). The officer is still using force unnecessarily on someone who is already handcuffed and not fighting back. This scenario continues to be a common theme with racial profiling incidents and Rankine knowing this, shows that this process is only causing more violence.
That winter, a hit man “shot Jeremy three times in the back of the head, then once, at close range, in the face” (16). Stillman makes it understandable in her article that the police officers are not executing their rightful task and that the security of criminal informants needs to be
Rita and the social worker working on their case show up and Rita argues that he was just tiring to spend some time with his child. In these two interactions, a social worker was always called, the cop was more sympathetic towards Sam whilst the social worker was strict and wary of Sam. When Sam first meets Rita at her office she is juggling many things at once and the scene is very chaotic. Rita pays no attention to Sam whilst he is telling the story of how they took Lucy away from him during her birthday. Slowly Sam starts to melt Rita’s cold heart with his genuine kindness and in the process teaching her how to be a more loving mother.
