This shows us that civilians had to be extremely careful even when they had not broken the law, which would restrict what they could do in public. “Men were fined for striking matches in the street to light their cigarettes or pipes.” This source also tells us that civilians could not carry out every day behaviour while they were in public. This may have made getting on with their lives very difficult and did not enable them to act as they normally would. The overall impact of
I don’t steal because I don’t want to be stolen. I obey laws in expectation of others thinking and doing the same. I have been taught by my parents that it is basically bad to break the law. I feel like if I don’t obey the law in way that I would disappoint them and never hear the end of it from my parents. “Speeding may seem to be a harmless offense at first glance.
Some will give them money and some will act as if they do not see or even hear them. The reason why people do that is physiological. They do not believe that these people are homeless and really need the money for food and such. They think that people who appear to be homeless or those on the street asking for handouts are just going to use the money for drugs and alcohol. In addition, some people do give them money because they think it’s the right thing to do.
Although police officers stand for peace, there are many countries where people view police not as the hero but as the villain. Even in safe, developed countries like Canada and the United States, acts of police misconduct have occurred. For these reasons, police officers should not be allowed to carry firearms. Eliminating guns won’t eliminate police misconduct; however it will take some power away from them but that can be good because they will also be gaining power this way. It sounds confusing but when people see a man with a gun, no matter what side of the law he is on, they will get intimidated and possibly fear him.
Holden’s fear of change contributes to his resistance of the process of maturity. This is because Holden considers becoming mature a substantial change in his life and he, therefore, resists it. When Holden hired a prostitute, he realised that having sex with a prostitute would contribute to his progress to adulthood. Therefore, he attempted to get out of it by diverting the topics of the conversations he had with the prostitute, even though he knew it was a ‘childish thing’. It is notable that Holden never directly mentioned that he disliked sex; He merely says that he was ‘feeling so damn peculiar.’ His thoughts about the museum of Natural History demonstrate his fear of change.
So gun control is not the answer to the problem. Law Enforcement needs to crack down on criminals and the illegal sales of firearms to help elevate the problems with the death or homicide rate. The normal everyday work class people do not need to be punished for the acts of criminals and drug dealers. If gun control were to take effect and guns were outlawed it would still not solve the problem at hand. It wouldn’t solve the problems because only the outlaws
I think one of the reasons that he has an issue with the can divers is by their going through individual cans of garbage, the process becomes much more personal and that may be why he shuns that method of acquisition. By going through only the large dumpsters he is able to distance himself from individuals. I think he makes this point where he says "I avoid trying to draw conclusions about the people who dump in the Dumpsters I frequent". He also talks of that distance being ethical as he does also see their bills and letters. The most interesting point of the essay is the last paragraph where Lars compares himself to the ultra-wealthy.
Phil was asked nicely to find another hotel because the hotel is full and there is no space available for him. The hotel staff could not say that the hotel is off-limit because it would be too obvious. Even though it is not said out loud, this is clearly a form of discrimination because was a treated differently due to his origins. Discrimination can take different shapes and styles, but it is still ugly and should be stopped. I believe that discrimination by gentlemen agreement still occurs in today’s society.
Persuasive Writing The persuasive writing I am going to be writing about is “Teens falling into costly drugs trap” from the newspaper in Adelaide. The audience my persuasive writing is trying to talk to is a whole range on people. The people it is talking to are Teenagers, Young adults, Parents and Politicians. The purpose the text is telling us is about how teenagers or young adults are falling into deadly drug traps from drug traffickers. The reporter for the newspaper who did this piece is telling us how politicians are not taking crime and drugs seriously.
Have you ever walked into a gas station and one of your city Police Officers walk in and get a cup of coffee and then walk out without paying? Because that’s a form of Police corruption. Police corruption occurs in almost every police agency in the United States (U.S.). Corruption isn’t just police taking drugs and money, it consist of bribery and dishonest actions. Big Police corruption happens in big cities like New York (NY) or Los Angeles (LA) when a group of Police Officers want to make more money so they decide to take the money of the criminals when they arrest them.
