It also had an effect on society with the growing numbers of people who were admitted into the alcohol wards of the hospitals. This affected families because now people who wanted to drink had to do it illegally and many got put in jail if they got caught. This made police officers jobs more difficult because the people who wanted to drink had to do it illegally, and the cops were cracking down. It opened up opportunities for organized crime to start manufacturing and distributing of liquor, while making millions of dollars along the way. All of a sudden drinking was illegal.
I am writing a reflection on the essay Rink Rage by James Deacon. I would recommend it to anyone involved in recreational sports especially parents. In this essay you learn about the aggression parents have towards the referees and how it’s influencing more parents to have outbursts and ruin the sport for the children. Over the years parents have been becoming more aggressive towards the referees to the point where they are actually assaulting them. This is becoming a much bigger issue though the offenders are not the majority the assaults are becoming more aggressive and in some cases have ended in death, this is something that needs to be dealt with and recognized.
In the article Police Shootings Won 't Stop Unless We Also Stop Shaking Down Black People by Jack Hitt, the author describes a numerous amount of incidents against African Americans that almost always resulted in violent endings. Police are doing a lot of unjust things to citizens, most of which are to generate revenue for the city and to fund their own paychecks. For example, racist officers would pull over someone who is black for a minor incident and have them fined an amount that they are financially unable to pay; thus resulting in an escalating, yet endless amounts of additional fines. They also abuse their powers by breaking laws and justifying it with their police badge and authority. This shows that police who target people of a certain
Parents have a larger responsibility over their own youth than the government having a responsibility over all of our youth. According to James Alan Fox in Mass Shootings in America: Moving Beyond Newtown, parents have the biggest responsibility over their kids playing violent video games. “To the extent that youngsters spend endless hours being entertained by violence says more about the lack of parental supervision and control. It isn 't that the entertainment media are so powerful; it is that our other institutions - family, school, religion, and neighborhood - have grown weaker with respect to socializing children…” Fox is trying to get at one thing here, and this is that we may think these violent video games were made to be addicting
The game is being changed because of the research that has been conducted and the shocking results of life after football. The major demographic of the fans who do not appreciate the new rulings are males who are middle aged and played the sport when they
This issue is important to me because of the recent (and growing) numbers of people unnecessarily killed by the police. This is becoming a hot and debated political topic amongst Americans, but I believe that police wearing body cameras would benefit everyone. This amendment could however be violated if police officers turn off or abandon their body cameras . If this happens, I believe the officers should undergo thorough investigation and should possibly be fired. A way to amending the Constitution, other than the most common path explained earlier, is for two-thirds of state legislatures to ask Congress to call a convention for proposing amendments.
Current players are more at risk because the game of football is becoming more violent and players are getting injured more often(Vrentas). But the public 's problem is not just with the NFL but also with middle school, high school, and college football because it is at that age when the players are most at risk(Barra). Parents are preventing kids from playing football because of the high risk for injury and fear that their children will suffer from a concussion and be permanently harmed. One of the main reasons the general public is beginning to shy away from football is all of the risks and past injuries.
There is definitely more stress, both good and bad, in the criminal justice field than most other fields. The good stress is the excitement of catching criminals and helping the public, which is like the good stress of scoring a touchdown in football or hitting a homerun in baseball. The bad stress come from things that those in other fields do not see such as “exposure to murders, numerous car accidents, seeing hurt kids, and other types of secondhand trauma” (Herships, 2015, par. 2). On the job bad stress also comes from the tough administrative policies and procedures that accompany the criminal justice field (Cronkhite, 2013). These stresses can lead to suicide if not kept under control as police officers have a higher suicide
However, in recent years, violence in sport, both in the field and outside, has been a social problem. For example, committees were set up in Canada, England and Australia to investigate violence in a sports mode. Debate on fan violence in modern sports usually involves the violent behavior of football fans, called "riot." The motive for fan violence is being thoroughly explored by sociologists around the world. Much of the violence appears to be linked to social and economic factors, such as poverty and class, but violence in religion-related fans (for example, Scotland) and regional issues (such as Italy and
But this applies to only those who resort to cheating ways. Sports persons always hit the headlines for a lot of controversies like using drugs, playing for two clubs, abusing the fans of other countries or clubs or inappropriate behaviour in the field or breaking the code of conduct and so on and so forth. The problem does not stop here; the sports medicine which the players take is also causing serious debates and discussion. Issues like faking injury, losing intentionally to get a stronger opponent and failing the gender test had also surfaced in the
Although both boys and girls play similar sports, the boys sports are given more attention. People have been entertained with football for a long time. Plenty of the football athletes have recently complained about the new rules regarding safety in the field. At times, instead of the game entertainment, people are being lured into the drama a lot of sports have such as fights within the field, objects being thrown at each other, and corruption in the major leagues, that takes a greater approach into violence. Violence within the game only makes things worse because people play more rough in the field.
How their job can be very demanding is because a lot of these athletes have to play whether their injured or not and many of the guys in the nfl risk getting permanent damage to their brains and many times these guys are pressured to use performance Enhancing Drugs to make them better at their sport so they risk they risk their reputations and body for their
The main reason players should not be allowed to unionize is players could get whatever they want if they went on strike. A nationwide strike of NCAA athletes would not only upset the school, but also the millions of people who watch college sports every year. Besides making masses of people upset a strike would lose millions of dollars of revenue for schools, affecting the whole school not just the athletes. “This threat has to do with the position of these so-called "premier" sports as part of a continuing and dramatic revolution in the culture of sport in America(Hearn)”. The premier sports in America include basketball, football, and baseball.
Meanwhile, due to the media coverages, mass shooting slowly become a serious threat to the people. Although the media has exaggerated the detail and statistics of the shooting, which make their coverages look more trustworthy, researchers and reporters
The powerful words “trust, but verify” were once said by former United States President Ronald Reagan. These words need to be used for all situations and people. In order for there to be trust and a way to verify what happens between the police officers and citizens, police body cameras need to be worn. Technology is advanced as it has ever been and there is now a way for police officers to wear a camera right on their uniform. This technology must be taken advantage of for the benefits it provides to police officers and citizens.
