They got into an altercation and shots were fired. Nobody knows the truth of his death because of the missing details. It is known though, that a 16 year old boy was killed because of the label placed on him. Stereotyping affects people in many ways and usually affects one in a negative way. Nobody should label one but it just a habit we all pick up.
The Black Lives Matter movement has struck controversy around the nation. Many have witnessed innocent young black lives being taken in the blink of an eye by the ones that are meant to serve and protect. Time after time minorities have fallen victim to a justice system that continues to fail them. This has always been an issue however, in 2012 when 17-year-old Trayvon Martin was gunned down by a neighbor because of false pretenses and stereotypical judgement sparked an old flame. Trayvon’s death gave both birth and purpose to the creation of #BlackLivesMatter.
The same girl he did work for every day started a trial against him saying he raped her. Her claim should have been disproven in many ways, there was enough evidence to contradict it but the jury is so racist they look right past it. Tom was found guilty and sent to Enfield Prison Farm waiting for an appeal even though he shouldn’t have been there in the first place. Finally, as Tom was in that prison he got sick and tired of waiting for an appeal so he made a run for it, and was shot 17 times to be stopped. This ends up killing him and once the news makes it to the town it just rolls off their shoulders.
About 9,000 firearms deaths and 12,000 stabbings. So people who wanna kill others that bad aren’t gonna be stopped by telling them what they are doing is bad considering that 75% percent of shooters killed the self or had suicide by cop. So they don’t care because the law isn’t gonna affect them if they are dead which they usually intend to happen. Here's something else to get your brain thinking, Eric’s mom knew about his gun purchases and explosive purchases, she just did nothing. He came from an upper class family where everything was given to him without any effort on his side since day one.
This violence has been ongoing for approximately forty years now, and the body count is only getting higher. People are raised into this gang violence, even children are receiving guns from the ages ten to thirteen. Members of these gangs join for protection, acceptance, and a family. It was known that if you were a man, you had to either fight or kill, “young black men were pretending to be men by killing each other” (Raised into Wrongfulness). People see this only as a crime and a gang problem, when it also generates from the poor education and the lack of work society is giving these gang members.
A 17 year old made the decision to drive drunk and killed an innocent live and since he can't get life in jail or be put to death he will get out in a few years, and what does this mean for the community, who's to say that he won't make another dumb decision that could kill someone else or himself. If juveniles who killed someone were sentenced to life in jail or sentenced to death it would make the community safer because then they will know that someone who has done something extremely bad wouldn't be able to do anything like that ever again, it would be safer the community and the citizens within it. When they get out of jail they can get mad at someone and possibly kill them, i think that when the supreme court made the rule that juveniles under 18 cannot be put to death or have a life sentence they should have also thought of peoples safety not about how anyone under 18 has their whole life ahead of
Nobody wants to be the outcast. In the short story “The Most Dangerous Game”, Rainsford looks at killing people as murders and Zaroff looks at it as a game. All races should have the same value because if not this world would be full of racial riots, which could lead to a lot of murders. This past year there has been full of racial fights and arguments from just shooting another race or police officers
When victims are being killed or injured, many of the families would want to make sure the criminal would attempt another crime. On the night of August 31, Kermit Alexander’s “...mother, sister and two nephews were cold-heartedly shot to death” (Top 10 Pro & Con Arguments). Putting an individual on this penalty would result in the person not harming anybody else, and gives the victim’s family a closure knowing the killer is gone. Additionally, a perspective on why the death penalty should not be eradicated is because of its deterrence. David Muhlhausen, a researcher says that “between executions and reduced murder rates...
Gun laws are the cause to a lot of the violent crimes in the united states and laws need to be changed so people can’t purchase guns as easily that way we aren’t in as much trouble. Most people that commit violent gun crimes are mentally ill, for example the last school shooting that occured on february 14 2018 at Marjory stoneman douglas high school in parkland florida, the gunman Nikolas Cruz was mentally ill. He walked into the school with his guns and shot and killed 17 students and a teacher.He had issues with learning, and controlling his emotions and stuff. (source) Someone that is mentally ill or has certain problems like Nikolas Cruz shouldn’t be allowed to own a gun in the first place. This is where it is believed gun control would have a good effect in the long run, if its harder to get a gun then these guns will not make it in the hands of a school shooter.
The death penalty has killed countless amounts of people and has negatively impacted so many more. So why hasn’t it, like other killers, been sentenced to death for the heinous crimes it has committed. Stated by the international commission “Public support for the death penalty does not mean that taking away the life of a human being is right. There is undisputed historical precedence where gross human rights violations had had the support of a majority of the people, but which were condemned later on.” People may want to free from crime and horror but taking a life is never the way to go. The end of the death penalty will mean the end of thousands of deaths and the start of thousands of lives.
Black people killed by police were also significantly more likely to have been unarmed” (Laughland, Swaine and Lartey). There are reasons that why they are racism against black people because they keep killing them. Every year, the statistics are highest that the police officers because of racism kill unarmed black people. “32% of black people killed by police in 2015 were unarmed, as were 25% of Hispanic and Latino people, compared with 15% of white people killed” (Laughland, Swaine and Lartey). Police officers do not like them and have no respectful for them because they are black people.
Police brutality hurts families around the world because their siblings are either hurt or killed for no reason. “Excessive and lethal force have always been major sources of conflict between members of minority groups and the police in the United States.” Police brutality happens all over the world. It mainly happens because of some officers being racists. People don 't see eye to eye, they just
Many officers use racial profiling to an excessive degree and use it as their defense for killing a defenseless African American. According to mic.com, white officers kill black suspects twice a week in the United States. It is the unfortunate truth that black people are more likely to be killed by the police than any other race. In order to properly train law enforcements, they must be taught to not discriminate against someone because of their skin color. Killing someone based off their race is a terrible way of
People say “all lives matter”, But you don’t see white people dying every damn day. All I see are innocent black people getting beat to death, murdered, and still no justice is seen anywhere for these innocent people. Families have lost loved ones and they can’t even get justice. It’s so disappointing to me. I feel this topic is strong because I don’t see enough justice for black people.
The population of the federal prison system has increased over 500 percent in the last thirty years. 2.2 million people are currently incarcerated throughout the nation. The cause of the growth of this population is the increase in African American and Hispanic imprisonment. African American population is nearly half of the total population. One and six black men will be arrested and imprisoned as of 2001.
