The year 1919 was the most horrific year in American history in terms of racial violence. David F. Krugler clearly describes the horrendous events that occurred during this year in his book 1919, The Year of Racial Violence: How African Americans Fought Back. According to the book, "Between late 1918 and 1919, the United States recorded ten major race riots, dozens of minor, racially charged clashes, and almost 100 lynchings as white Americans tried to enforce the continued subjugation of black Americans in the postwar era" (Krugler 3). Extremely violent mob attacks and the lynching of African Americans were very common occurrences throughout the entire country with some states having more acts of violence than others. I thought Krugler's book was an incredibly informative read because it gave honest, raw details of anti-black acts of violence and was focused on various African Americans' perspectives during this critical time.
The boat was swept down to Baton Rouge, where it was with 48 dead males and 3 dead females. The cost of damage was estimated to be at least 1,260,000 dollars, which would be about 30 million dollars in modern times (Hall, 2014). In the meantime, the tornado killed 317 people, but the official death toll may not have included slaves. The total amount of people who got injured was 109 people (CNN Staff, 2014). Furthermore, many people were left homeless because of all of the destruction caused by the massive tornado.
We learned that over the last 40 years the police department of the City of Miami and Miami- Dade County have experienced their share of civil disturbances. To illustrate, there have four cases of race riots between both police departments which led to innovation to be involved in their pursuits to better their responses. These were the race riots in 1968, the Liberty City Riot, 1980, the McDuffie Riot, 1982 Luis Alvarez Riots, and 1989 Loranzo Riots within the Liberty City over town areas. However, the article stated that these riots were resulted by either police shooting of young black men, or thanks to the federal government the deporting of a young Cuban boy. Thus, it was not until the civil arrest of the 1980’s McDuffie Riot which seemed
Over 50 people were injured and hospitalized. A couple people died months later because of their injuries. These marchers were not interrupting anybody or bothering anything and the police officers had to take action. They were on the sidewalk of the highway and away from the officers and others. The officers thought they were going to do something bad so they took
This caused the population to grow and there were a bunch of people in Tulsa at the time of these events happening. “About 40 blocks were destroyed, including 1,256 homes, many of which had been looted before they were set alight.”(Sulzberger). This was a big area of Tulsa that was home to a lot of people. People expressed racism more around this time making it harder for whites to believe anything besides Rowland assaulting a small girl doing her job because most whites did not like blacks. Although a lot has changed since this time but we cannot forget what people went through to get to where we are now.
There have been numerous protests in Chicago right now about police brutality. After what happened last year with the police just randomly shooting fired with Michael Brown, Laquan McDonald, and many more, this got people angry and started to protest more heavily on the streets. What happened recently in Dallas, people were so furious with the police department that they stepped onto the Dan Ryan highway. If people have to go that extreme to send a message, the City of Chicago is doing something wrong. We can change this by police being more peaceful and not so forceful if the victim didn’t do or say anything yet.
My source claims that poverty is a big problem in certain countries, yet most people aren't doing anything about it, they're too focused on themselves. Banksy claims that society is selfish and ungrateful. Mondays have become a big thing to be mad about anywhere, society seems to hate waking up early and doing work, yet in other countries people are dying due to lack of clean food. An argument that is linked with Idols of the tribe is society feeling like nothing is enough. Society feels that having to do tasks is just plain boring and makes life bad.
In urban areas is where gun violence makes the most damage since a large number of young minority males are killed or injured. Fear is increasing rapidly and it drives out businesses and disrupts community social life. Research has connected urban youth gun violence to gang conflicts, street drug markets, and gun availability. Youth gun violence is usually concentrated among groups of serious offenders and in very specific places. Bernie Sanders, candidate for president, supports tight gun control.
Sadly, intoxicated drivers kill about 300 individuals each year in Arizona and injure another 15,000 unlucky souls with their illegal actions. Available Damages for Victims of DUI Accidents A person who is arrested on DUI charges that result in death or injury of another, he or she typically faces one of two legal issues. The death of another under these circumstances leads to the police and prosecutors pursuing the conviction of the guilty party on serious criminal charges in court, such as vehicular manslaughter. If others just suffer injuries instead of fatalities, the DUI driver will likely need to pay substantial fines or spend time in jail depending upon the circumstances of the accident. Cases for civil suits to gain adequate compensation that the injured parties file are often strengthened when the driver is convicted first in criminal court of DUI or related charges.
