The United States needs to start seriously monitoring emails, text messages, phone calls, and web searches for any suspicious activity that could lead to terrorism. This is no joke, extremism in the defense of being able to go to a baseball game, or concert without anxiety is no vice. If anyone is a suspected terrorist, they should be monitored. Some people say that the Patriot Act is unconstitutional, but is it worth risking a life? Monitoring a suspected terrorist could prevent an attack from happening, and save lives.
When children use social media it causes controversy. Parents have mixed feelings on letting their children have social media accounts because it could either be used correctly or not. Children should not be allowed to have Social media accounts because social media has very mature content and it only persuades children to think wrong things are right and young children under 13 are not ready to see that.
It is impossible to discuss civil liberties and security without talking about 9/11 and the Patriot Act. The Patriot Act was passed almost immediately after 9/11, hugely expanding intelligence agencies ability to investigate potential terrorism. However, critics of the law say that it infringed on the civil liberties of the innocent and did not guarantee proper oversight of law enforcement agencies in their execution and use of these newfound powers. I agree that as war and violence evolve, so must our methods of preventing them. In this digital age preventing such violence means monitoring information channels and being able to respond to leads rapidly and subtly.
Should Schools Monitor Students Social Media!?!? Have you ever showed up at school and had a friend or classmate tell you about a rumor directed towards you? I think schools should monitor students social media posts but, only if there seems to be problems occurring and disrupting the class. Cyberbullying can lead to low self esteem and depression, causing worse things. Document E, document B and, document D all agree with limiting/monitoring students online speech.
There is a constant threat to the United States and its citizens in the form of terrorism. Taking the proper steps is crucial to ensure the Homeland stays protected as well as the people that rightfully live in it. There are still many terrorist organizations that have explicitly spoken and wrote about having their ultimate goal to inflict terrorism on the United States. These organizations are being constantly monitored with professionals and counterterrorism agencies. The National Counterterrorism center is one of the leading agencies in gathering intelligence and reporting on potential terrorism activity.
"The 21st century is needless to say, the era of digitalization, as social media controls every aspect of human life. Technology has rendered paper and pencil useless as it has shifted the face of the earth to network and communicate faster than ever. Countless apps, websites, and softwares exist to satiate the human desire for convenience and efficiency, all while serving to entertain our complex mindsets. Social media and its platform offer numerous ways for users to speak their minds through comments and ways to express themselves through pictures. The 1st Amendment in the Constitution ‚Äúprohibits the peoples‚Äô representatives in Congress from abridging these rights‚Äù (‚ÄúThe Bill of Rights‚Äù).
Some people say that social media is dangerous for kids because it changes their behaviors and more importantly it affects their learning for school. It is dangerous because, they never know who they are chatting with online. Social media changes children 's behaviors because they do unhealthy things that are intended for people over 18 years of age. It also affects their education in a bad way by using abbreviations or slang that threatens their skills in writing. However, others say that social media is beneficial for kids because researchers see them expressing themselves on it. There may be some reasons why social media is good for kids, but all and all social media is dangerous to the well-being and education of minors.
Immature kids can be harassed by the online stranger and it can be dangerous because they never know when they can be found by the stranger. Strangers can say things that aren 't true and kids might believe it . Kids can get into accidents when they are on social media like crashing or even injuries when they are too distracted on social
" Our generation is one known for the internet. Many of us have never known a world without the internet. A good thing about that is that we stay informed on subjects from all around. A bad thing is cyber-bullying and negativity. But no matter what negative or positive place we withhold on the internet, one thing that stays the same is government control.
Since September 11th, fear connected with national security threats has shifted to fear of the federal government. The U.S.A. Patriot Act certainly caused much anxiety amongst society. Signed by President George W. Bush on October 26, 2001, this act increased law enforcement’s surveillance and investigative powers, “The purpose of the USA PATRIOT Act is to deter and punish terrorist acts in the United States and around the world, to enhance law enforcement investigatory tools, and other purposes.” Clearly, federal agents have abused their power, as personal information, telephone calls, and Internet searches were and are being recorded and saved. A recent news article, posted in The Guardian, fully elucidates the intrusive government spying of American citizens, “the watchlist tracks ‘known’ and ‘suspected’ terrorists and includes both foreigners and Americans.
Having America ahead of terrorists with technology will help counter or prevent there horrible attacks in America, as well as anywhere in the world. In the article Robert S. Miller(Director of the FBI) wrote, he states “ We have brought in professionals from private industry to help bring the Bureau into the digital age “. Having this advance technology will help America to stay ahead of terrorism and possibly prevent it from happening. America can also stand up to terrorism by preparing, we the american people, for terrorist attacks here and abroad. There is a method that is being taught to everyone, from the american citizen all the way up to the U.S military.
Combating terrorism is nothing new to American law enforcement: the 1920’s saw bombings in New York City, during the 80’s there were multiple bombings at separate U.S. embassies, the 90’s brought the World Trade Center bombings, the Oklahoma City bombing, and attacks by “Unabomber” Ted Kaczynski.
"¬†¬†In our World, threats to our Country are common and are becoming frequent. Issues like bullying, extremism, terrorism, and even the illegal production and distribution of drugs threaten all parts of the world more than ever. Not to mention, our increasing dependence on technology for business transactions, work, school, and storage of information has opened up a medium to effectuate these actions. The use of the internet no doubt is beneficial but like anything else, it can, and has been put to ill use. Controversy has been stirred up concerning the monitoring of internet content by the government.
Living in the modern era makes social media become part of our life. Basically, social media are used for communication and social interaction. Based on the Merriam-Webster, social media are forms of electronic communication (as websites for social networking and microblogging) through which users create online communities to share information, ideas, personal messages, and other content (as videos). There are lots of social media that people use nowadays such as Instagram, Twitter, Facebook, Snapchat, Path, and others. Most of people probably have two or more social media’s accounts. Social media are mostly used by adults and adolecents. However, there are a lot of children that already use social media. Based on the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act, children under 13 years are not allowed to use social media for it can give bad impact for the children who actively use it.
Social media sites including Snapchat, Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram are at their peak when influencing young adults. Ongoing issues, cyberbullying, threats, and hate crimes are being presented through these social media sites and this is one of the multitude of reasons why parents should limit the use of technology for their teenagers. I agree that parents should limit the use of social media for their teenage child, or for any age child, because ongoing use causes lack of exercise, impaired social skills, and harm for threat and violence. Parents should restrict the use of social media sites for their children because it causes a decrease in physical activity. New research is showing a rapid decline in physical activity all around the globe.
