Minorities are also much more likely to be arrested, experts estimate that at the rate of current trends 1 in 3 black men will be arrested in their lifetime compared to 1 in 17 white men (Hagler). The obvious disparities in these statistics reveal just how far deep racial discrimination runs in the criminal justice system. Minorities are discriminated against in every stage of their prosecution: from stop-and-frisk, to arrest, to sentencing and
and the offensive provided no communist gain in any military way. These false depictions of the events in a negative way caused the public to believe that they were losing the war and caused them to stop supporting the war. Also, after the offensive, many more news-gathering institutions adopted antiwar editorial positions, which in turn would cause an accelerated decline in support as the negative views would be distributed and spread more quickly. A poll conducted in the months following the Tet Offensive showed that more than half of Americans believed that getting involved in the war was a mistake.
Racial profiling is mainly used by law enforcement officials as a way to knit out who their criminal suspects could be. Racial profiling is not benefitting anyone and has affected many people. Racial profiling has affected many lives for many years, especially people of color because law enforcement officials have often arrested, interrogated on the wrong person because of Racial Profiling. It is believed that the Racial Profiling is mainly towards the African American and the Muslim religion. Racial profiling became very high and important to do ever since September 9, 2001 because of the attacks on the World Trade Center.
Police Brutality is the use of excessive force that is used unnecessarily by police when dealing with civilians. Recently, there has been a widespread of cases involving police brutality. Police brutality cases has been increasing over the years. Every year cases are filed against police: 9.5% city police, 3.5% sheriff officers, 2.9% county police, and 1.3% are state police. A study by the U.S. Department of Justice revealed that in 2002, individuals filled over 26, 000 citizen complaints of excessive force with local law enforcement agencies.
Police brutality is one of the most serious human rights violations in the United States. In the past five years the police have murdered and seriously injured unarmed and in some circumstances innocent people and have made people all over the world upset even resulting in the start of movements such as “#BlackLivesMatter and #HandsUpDon’tShoot”. Unreasonable shootings, fatal beatings, brutal choke holds, and excessive force has been some of the recent cases of police brutality in America. The problem is that more cases go unreported, than the ones that actually are.
In the United States alone, more than 36 million people abuse illegal substances, however, most of these are not caused by the prescription of opioids. A drug abuse crisis is overtaking the U.S. Drug abuse kills over 200,000 people worldwide each year, although only .002 percent of these deaths are caused by the prescription of opioids. 117 million people suffer from a chronic illness, many of which need the prescription of opioids to function on a daily basis. Even though many people abuse them, doctors should not stop prescribing opioids because they are necessary for many people to function, most people who abuse them have had problems with other substances, and most opioid-related deaths do not come from doctor prescribed pills.
By the end of the month, 99 people were killed, according to the Killed By Police database. At least 77 wrongfully shot by the police officers. A big variety of people were murdered by the end of the month, all done by police officers.
And incidents like these are hard to forget. 26 people were murdered during their weekly sunday service in a Sutherland Springs church, and 58 people were killed and over 500 were injured during the Las Vegas shooting. According to the Mass Shooting Tracker, which catalogues such incidents, over 520 people were killed this year and 1,870 were injured. I think it is agreed by all that the act of innocent mothers, fathers, and children being shot and killed while going about their daily lives is a heinous act, and that the immense number masacres has put the country in a deplorable state.
Following the recent election of Donald, reports of hate crimes have steadily increased. Whether it’s in the form of vandalism, threatening fliers, physical or verbal abuse, 4-6 hate crimes happen every week. With the amount of hate crimes being committed, surely the people running our country have taken the reins and found a solution, right? The unfortunate truth is only 20% of hate crimes are actually reported, and less than 4% of the perpetrators are held accountable for their actions. Hate crimes have become a serious issue, and continuing to leave them unreported can and will tear America apart.
isn’t the only thing people believe needs to change; the reasons for arrests have been criticized by many. America incarcerates more citizens for drug related crimes than any other place in the world. Of the roughly 200,000 in federal prison, 52% are being held for drug crimes and only 8% are for violent crimes, such as: murder, assault, and robbery (Waldman, 2013). Many believe that the “War on Drugs” must become less aggressive because of its large contribution to the prison population. The distribution of prisoners by race has also raised concern among Americans.
police killed 776 people, 161 of whom were completely unarmed at the time of their death. The data was compiled by The Guardian for a project called “The Counted,” a continuously updated, interactive database of police killings in the United States. Based on their figures, police have killed, on average, about three people per day so far this year. The Counted database is the most comprehensive information available on police killings, since no U.S. government agency maintains a similar listing, and this is were I’ve gotten information from for the numbers of people the police have plainly Murdered in 2015. Based on The Guardian’s statistics, police killed more white people than any other race this year.
Unfair profiling and the use of lethal force is causing war in the world among us. 939 people dead at the hands of police. 865 people were either unarmed, mentally ill, or of color. A number of people have been brutally shot and killed by law enforcement in the year 2016 so far, reaching 776 total, and the year is not over yet.
“In 2013, there were a total of 30,057 fatal crashes in the United States that involved 44,574 drivers. As a result of those fatal crashes, almost 32,719 people were killed.” Almost half of distracted driving crashes are rear end crashes which then results in hitting more cars and making those cars go out of control ending in either hitting innocent people or more cars. There are many things the Federal government and the states are doing to prevent this thing from happening. Such as “many states are banning texting while driving, or using graduated driver licensing systems for teen drivers, to help raise awareness about the dangers of distracted driving and to keep it from occurring.”
Why the police officers are brutality on black people? There are highest percentage of statistics that police officers; white people are racism against black people and they killed them without the cautions while some of black people unarmed that means they do not have any weapons on them. Black people have some struggled to understand why every year the police officers always killed black people without negotiation and why against black people while they are innocent. There are several ways are complication situations between the police officers against black people because of racism. I noticed the police officers killed the article Called Policing the Police talked about the highest percentages of black men who unarmed.
Most of the time when the police fire their guns, it’s because the suspects have ran away. This proves that this is mostly about police hostility. Many people only notice the police shootings when a black man is killed because they look at it as a racial problem. The killings of black men stick out way more
