That would make this year alone to be one of the deadliest years since people had begun tracking this statistic back in 2013. King also mentions that no one in this country will care about police brutality until the police start killing white families, which clearly brings us to the assumption that almost all of the 660 victims have been criminalized and racially profiled (King para 1 & 2). This piled on top of the excuse of a government is an important factor to our existential
As the new year replaces the old, we reflect on the previous year as a society and we find that 2017 was a year marred by corruption scandals. In the United States alone, Americans witnessed corrupt men such as Senator Bob Menendez, former correction officers’ union chief Norman Seabrook, and Virginia Governor Bob McDonnell escape judgement from their acceptance of bribes while also watching those that stood for justice, such as attorney Preet Bharara and FBI director James Comey, be punished for their actions. This corruption of politics in the United States has made many Americans feel as though their voices are not being heard. It seems as if American leaders only answer to the most affluent among us, which has made many Americans feel disheartened by the promise of equality that comes with democracy. In

Honest Government Officials find it hard to function properly due to the widespread idea that all officials are corrupt. One institution that is considered to be the most corrupt is the Police. Newspapers and other media often report of incidents where the police refuse to register FIRs because the victim was unable to pay bribe.
In opposition to the Marcos Media’s censorship and propaganda, they produced articles, leaflets, and newspapers reporting the abuses the administration was committing to the country and the people. As a result, many of the journalists and media persons involved in the production of such news were arrested and incarcerated in military camps; some even tortured or killed (Sarrosa, 2013). Due to these two conflicting conditions of media, democracy in the country was repressed and chaotic. The widespread deception by the Marcos Media effectively lulled those not very affected or aware of the abuses the government was executing into a false sense of security, whereas those who knew better were quickly caught and if not subjected to scrutiny, then to torture or incarceration. Democracy became subjective; one could only exercise it if

As a malingering cancer, corruption is not limited to any regime but have difference in degree. Corruption has been part and parcel of Nigerian history. During the military regime with incessant coups and counter coups that followed it, every new government accuses its predecessor of encouraging corruption only to fall victim to the same web of corruption. Economic Development does not thrive in societies or nations bedeviled with corruption as it saps all the ingredients that helps in reducing poverty, unemployment, inequality and child and maternal mortality.
