For many years, it has been difficult in identifying the proper meaning of the use of force or the proper use of force, regarding on police officers. Use of force by police officers is acceptable under specific circumstances, such as self-defense and of another individual or group when necessary. There are officers caught abusing their power by using excessive force in the wrong situations. Many people can view police officers as using excessive force in a way to complete their job, but others can view them as using excessive force inappropriately in cases like racial profiling.
The Ninth Amendment states: “The enumeration in the Constitution, of certain rights, shall not be constructed or deny or disparage others retained by the people” (Bill of Rights). This amendment was made to protect people’s rights. Including things like marriage, abortion, slavery, and police conduct. However, this modification has been compromised several times in the past and the present.
The Black Lives Matter movement has intervened on America’s unjust treatment of African Americans with nonviolent protests, rallies to reach out to the people, and the making of coalitions of Black Americans. Since the Black Lives Matter movement has started the ideal of civil disobedience has changed in the public eye. Civil Disobedience is still relevant in today’s world, but with the historic beliefs of Mahatma Gandhi, Henry David Thoreau, Martin Luther King, and other advocates of bettering America, we can discover a better way to find resolutions in violent political conflicts.

Our society today relies heavily on mass media for communication. Through these mediums and others, like television and printable sources, information is spread worldwide.

In today’s modern society, many feel that is okay for a police officer can kill a man armed with a harmful weapon at any cost. On many news channels, there are various amounts of articles and reports about a police officer committing this act. Even though a police officer has the right to take action against an armed man, this could be argued in many circumstances. In the 2013, Sammy Yatim was a young adult with a mental illness and was armed with a weapon on a streetcar in Toronto. Yatim was confronted by Const. James Forcillo, who took action against Yatim, shot multiple times and killed him. After an extensive trial, Const. James Forcillo was convicted with attempted murder and no additional charges were laid against him. For the reason

Amy B. Wang and Kristine Phillips question the choices the Weirton Police Department in West Virginia made on the career of Stephen Mader, who recently lost his job after he hesitates to shoot, in their article, “‘Just shoot me,’ an armed man told a cop. The officer didn’t and was fired, his lawsuit claimed.” On May 6, 2016, Stephen Mader received a domestic dispute call, and “once on the scene, he encountered a “visibly distraught” man named Ronald J. Williams.” ( Mader tries to convince the man to lower his gun, but Williams refuses; therefore, when Williams raised his gun, another officer killed him. A month later, Mader was fired for not following the police department 's procedures. He considers this case unjustified due to the fact that he did the right thing, he was called to the scene because Williams was trying to commit suicide, and in his best judgment, Mader chose to not fire his arms. Mader was in no danger, therefore, there was no need to fire and no need for him losing his job. Even though he was a Marine and Afghanistan war veteran, Mader’s decision was questioned.
Police brutality on African-American’s is violent and harmful.

Police brutality on African Americans is a terrible social injustice that must end.
What began as peaceful demonstrations on Sunday night in Ferguson descended into chaos as volleys of gunshots rang out as police in riot gear tried to disperse protesters blocking traffic and smashing storefront windows along a street that was a flashpoint of riots last year after Brown, 18, was shot dead. Missouri Governor Jay Nixon called Sunday 's violence "a sad turn of events" carried out by a criminal element and appealed for peaceful rallies on Monday (Ingwerson 1985). . But Nixon, who had deployed the National Guard to quell violence last year, did not make any mention of additional security for those rallies. The county 's order allows it to distribute money and material for emergency purposes "and to protect the health and safety
Kb is doing a little over the speed limit and speeds past a red light. He know he did this but he was overdosed on some medication that his doctor previously gave him. Then within a few seconds Kb noticed through his driver side mirror that state trooper number 73 flashed his lights. He Would 've never thought he would get pulled over but he did. He saw the light and refused to stop, He forgot he only can go a certain speed because his transmission was going bad, After a few more feet his 2013 Chevrolet Equinox stopped. The trooper got out his car and asked for his license and registration. While her reached in his arm rest he pulled out his black wallet and the officer pulled out his gun and shot Kb 1 time in the shoulder. The trooper noticed
It’s a cold winter morning, and a police officer is patrolling his normal route. Born and raised in this small Midwestern town, he is now starting his own family here. He rarely sees any excitement at 3 A.M., but he spots a car swerving as he passes it on a country highway. He turns around and pulls the car over to find that the driver is his neighbor. It is not a rare occurrence that it is someone he knows in such a small community. His neighbor appears to be intoxicated and becomes violent when the officer reaches for his handcuffs. He takes a swing at the officer and then attempts his escape. Thirty years prior, the officer would have had the option to draw his weapon and fire or risk a dangerous car chase. Thankfully, he has a Taser gun on his belt. He is able to draw, fire, and apprehend the subject with little effort and no loss of life. His neighbor may have died that night if it were not for this modern technology. It is for this and many other similar situations that law enforcement should be allowed to use Tasers.
The year is 1302, Dante Alighieri is absent from his role as one of the six supreme magistrates. Prior to that he had an extremely successful political career who had no problem exerting his power. Dante considered himself “a moderate White, he found it necessary during the two-month term to join in banishing his brother-in-law, Corso Donati, and his "first friend," Guido Cavalcanti, as ringleaders respectively of the Blacks and Whites.” Blacks and Whites were faction groups who had ongoing fights in the streets of Florence. This is an extremely admirable trait of a great ruler and/or ruler, the ability to at any moment turn on friends or family in order to uphold the city or government. This is comparable to the pride Greeks had in their respective
Drinking and driving will never stop. Everyone who goes out and drinks doesn’t always have a designated driver. Most people leave work and depending on how their day was they may need a drink or two. Also if they had a bad day or got fired from the only income they had to depend on it might lead to more drinks than they need. I know when the holidays or big events come to the city the police try to increase the patrolling to keep drunk drivers off the street. There are too many people out there drinking and driving for the police to catch them all. . Maybe if they drive with more caution, they have less chances of being stopped by the police. I do know that having a DWI on your license can cause you to pay a lot of big fines and also
