He said 3 overall between both stations, eighty percent are medical calls. He said, “sometimes you see things that will never leave your mind and you constantly are seeing those images”.

He informed me that, Pre- Incident planning crews go out once year to do planning around the city. There are several hydrant units that are flow tested once a year and have a color code system
Police shootings have been a big conflict in the media within the last few years, definitely shootings involving a white citizen and a black police officer. What most people do not know, is that there is much more that happens with these shootings than what we, as citizens, hear of in the media. We may hear many rumors and what may have happen, but do we know the real story if the victim was killed in the
Although, the decision tested the true meaning of the 4th amendment, it also provided clarity as well as security for the men and women who serve in law enforcement. The ruling allowed law enforcement to legally “Frisk” a subject, thereby providing law enforcement officers the opportunity to protect themselves. Furthermore, it is through these reasonable stops and pat downs that thousands of arrests are made for illegal activity. For example, the New York Police Department through the increase in police enforcement, along with what is referred to as “Stop and Frisk”, saw a 80% reduction in the homicide rate, therefore protecting and saving thousands of lives through this court
She mentioned that there was a lot of talk going around in the city of Okeechobee, and that there were comments made by prosecutors prior to the jury selection that adversely impacted results. “Everyone knows everyone in this small town, it is not absurd to think that word of mouth spread rapidly.” The justices did not seem entirely satisfied with this statement, but they continued arguing in legal jargon that I could not for the life of me understand. The trial was quickly wrapped up after this, with no real solution as to how to move forward. The entire ordeal lasted around 35 minutes, and the next hearing was set about a month from this one.
This made everyone open their eyes to police brutality and whether it’s real or not. But way before Mike Brown got killed and even afterwards there were still police incidents happening. On February 17th after the cops were issued to always have their dash cams on, an incident happened with a eighteen year old teenager named Cortez Bufford. He was pulled over for his car looking like a car that was at a scene of a shooting. When asked to exit the vehicle, he was forced out instead and pulled to the ground.
So far in the year of 2015, 66 unarmed African Americans have been killed by police authorities. Ever since the death Michael Brown in August 2014, the world has become much more aware of police brutality. According to wisegeek.org, police brutality is “a form of police misconduct in which officers engage in an excessive use of force.” Police brutality against African Americans is an issue that has been causing a lot of controversy in the past year.

Some ways to prevent this would be running a background check on gun owners, searching before entering large residents, training police officers, and monitoring. There is not an exact definition of a “mass shooting.” But according to the Gun Violence Archive a mass shooting is defined as “any incident where four or more people are wounded or killed [excluding] gang killings or slayings that involve multiple family members” (Christensen). If this is what is considered a mass shooting, then 136 incidents have occurred in 2016. Which has an average of 6.87 victims (Christensen).
The FBI responded to September 11 in extraordinary fashion. More than 4,000 special agents and 3,000 professional employees helped in the recovery and subsequent investigation. A single crime scene at the Pentagon in Virginia or at the World Trade Center alone likely would have eclipsed any previous investigative effort. The combination—along with the crash site in Pennsylvania—challenged the FBI to deploy its assets efficiently and in innovative ways. All FBI Headquarters divisions, field offices, and nearly every unit at the FBI Laboratory contributed.
The Boston bombing took place on April 15th, 2013; the attack took place during the Boston marathon that normally takes place every year around the same time. I believe that the response that was given to such an event was exactly what was needed, and for the local authorities to shut down MBTA and many other things along with it was a smart move. Then calling in for restrictions on the airspace over Boston was a right decision for the safety of the citizens within the area, after that federal official Eric Holder called for all resources within the US Department of Justice. Now all these measures they decided to take were the right ones to take considering with what happened on September 11th 2001, which is something homeland security was aiming to avoid. another action that was taken so victims’ families could get information quickly was google using their person finder combining it with a disaster service under a log titled “Boston marathon explosions”.
My interest in being a part of the CUNY Law Review was peaked when I came across a CUNY Law Review article as I was preparing my research paper on police violence. G. Flint Taylor’s “The Chicago Police Torture Scandal: A Legal and Political History,” put into prospective the continuous outcries of the citizens of Chicago regarding police violence against people of color as well as the cover-up by the local political and legal systems. Particularly with the recent decision by the Chicago District Attorney’s office to charge a police officer for the execution of 16-year old Laquan McDonald after withholding video evidence for over a year. Though much has changed in Chicago since the torture scandal, it is clear that a lot more has to be done as there continues to be an issues of accountability and swift action when officers step across the line from public servant to criminal.

From Boston to Devastation “We are Boston Strong”(Buzzfeed). On April 15, 2013, two terrorist created bombs to go off at the Boston Marathon finish line to injure and kill people.
