The incidence of deaths in traffic accidents in different months of the year are as follows in Table 4. The highest rates of fatal accidents (76.86%) occurred in the major ways and minor ways (9.99%), rural ways (5.44%) were next in the ranking. In terms of the location of the event, 29.71% of accidents resulting in deaths occurred in roads within the city road and 66.27% of these cases occurred in roads out of city. And there was no significant difference between male and female drivers (p =0.8) Most of the accidents caused by vehicles colliding with each other (46.96%) and the reversal of the vehicle with the deceased (24.61%) and pedestrian’s collisions with vehicles (21.27%). In terms of the status of the deceased at the time of the accident, most deceased people were drivers with 42.55% and then vehicle passengers with 34.90 and the pedestrians ranked third with 21.27%.
First, in 2010, “African Americans accounted for more than a third of the arrests for violent crimes.” In 2010, according to the Census Bureau, African Americans only made up 13% of the population. In contrast, in 2010, whites made up about 73% of the population, and they accounted for about 60% of violent crimes according to the FBI. There is a clear discrepancy here. How do we know this is because of racial discrimination? The source goes on to say that “[t]he percentage of victims who say their perpetrator was black closely matches the percentage of African Americans arrested” (Costly, Andrew).
In America, for every fifty one minutes, someone is killed in a tragic drunk driving accident. That almost equates to twenty seven people every single day. Statistics by FBI states that in the year 2011 alone over 1.2 million drivers were arrested for driving under the influence of alcohol or narcotics. Also over 3,952 drivers have been tested positive for drug involvement after they had encountered an accident and escaped with deathly injuries. An even more shocking fact has been put forward by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) which stated that on an average, two in three people will be involved in a drunk driving crash in their lifetime.
In a section of a newspaper clipping retrieved from the archives titled, “Local groups offer non-violent ways for fighting against rape” the editor Linda Tufano reports statistics on rape. Tufano states, “Champaign police received 38 complaints of rape or attempted rape in the year this newspaper was published. Then the newspaper goes on to talk about the fact that 35 reports of rape were actually reported. However, in the previous year only 29 rapes were reported.” This is a high number of cases that have occurred, that could have been prevented. This is a significant fact, because all of the women
Comparing these two, the former has small impact for a city but very high frequency while the latter has very large impact for a city but low frequency (Bull-Kamanga et al., 2003: 199). Everyday hazards are not given that much attention but if we look at it closer, it causes more death when taken as a whole as compared to large disasters that happens occasionally. The problem in giving a solution to the effects of everyday hazards is the kind of belief and thinking that people have. As Wilson (1979) put it, the “obsession with large accidents is getting worse. We are apprehensive at the thought of a large accident in a nuclear power plant, although none has happened so far, and experts are optimistic that none will ever happen”
Obviously nothing has been learned from the corruption report of May 2012 During 2014 there were 3000 cases of police corruption, but only half were properly investigated. For some police officers it is clear that corruption has become routine, and it is apparent that no lessons have been learnt, and nothing has been achieved from the report submitted to the Home Secretary in May 2012 by Dame Anne Owens related to ‘Corruption in the Police Service in England and Wales’. Police Officers into drug-dealing A second report recently compiled in 2015 by the Serious Organised Crime Agency confirms a sharp increase over the past five years of police officers dealing in heroin, cocaine and amphetamines, and an equally startling rise in the number of police officers abusing their powers for sexual gratification. Hollow promises? On their website, alongside some vacuous rubbish and drivel about ‘declaring total war on crime’ the police claim to be committed to carrying out its duties with ‘humility and transparency’.
Department of Justice, within the years 1980 and 2008, 47.4% of homicide victims were black (Cooper & Smith, 2013). When one considers that the black population accounts for less than 15% of the United States population, it is apparent why this percentage is problematic. Of this 47.4%, 93% of these victims were killed by other black people (Cooper & Smith, 2013). Black-on-black crime is not limited strictly to homicides. From the year 2001 to 2005, of all violent victimization of African Americans, 77.1% of these victims were assaulted by other African Americans (Harrell 2007).
The population of blacks in jail is not proportional to the population of blacks in America. The website says “In at least 70 police departments around the country, the arrest rate for blacks was 10 times that of non-blacks (USA Today)" (Cohen). Betts says that he was around mostly black people all day and 90% of lock up was black. That should not be the case as multiple studies have shown even though blacks and whites commit crimes at about the same rate, blacks are arrested significantly more. The article states that according to the Washington Post “African-American drivers are 31 percent more likely to be pulled over than whites.
According to the FBI annual report in the United States they estimated that 8,277,829 were reported for residential robbery.(Fbi.gov). There is also an article claiming that every 14.6 seconds a residential robbery occurs in the United States. Average of $2000 dollars every victim and an average of 15% offenders were caught. (Powerlinkllc.com) In Hongkong 2,579 residential robbery cases were recorded making its lowest numbers since 1970. Police had been effective for their four strategic directions of plan including the engagement of the community, enhancing professional and personal qualities of force members, strengthening criminal intelligence gathering force-wide and supporting frontline units.
2. Non-Muslims make up the majority of terrorists in Europe: There have been over one thousand terrorist attacks in Europe in the past five years. Take a guess at what percent of those terrorists were Muslim. Wrong, now guess again. It’s less than
