How much did social attitudes change in the years 1955-75? Between the years 1955-75 there were many changes regarding the law that seemed like it would have a positive change however did not make much of an impact on the social attitudes towards the issue. The main ones in my opinion are abortion, immigration, death penalty and homosexuality. The main change in the 60s in my opinion was the legalisation of abortion in 1967. In the view of the government this would have a good impact on society because it reduced the amount of children being put up for adoption, less people would go through back street abortion which was a very dangerous procedure and the government also believed it would reduce the amount of poverty.
He is very experienced in criminal law and is against mandatory sentencing. This journal presents information that the mandatory sentencing policy in the U.S. is a failure. It argues that Legislators thought that they could “get tough on crime,” especially drug crime. I feel this source gives educated reasons as to why drug policy needs to be changed.

In the article “The Power of Context”, Malcolm Gladwell theorizes that context, or external pressure, contributes much more to an individual’s behavior than previously thought. The context that Gladwell refers to can be defined by the situation an individual is in. Within a particular situation there are influencing factors, such as people or the environment that he or she is surrounded by. He further argues that his concepts, such as the Broken Windows Theory, are the main reasons for the dramatic fall of crime rates in New York during the 1990s.

However this is a tremendous lie, and Winston is placed in a world of turmoil when he wants to uproot this lie.
It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to figure out why derelict properties are a bad thing. One house can bring down an entire block, and then the whole street, and then a community. Like a set of dominos, the broken window syndrome happens when we stop caring about things like trash and blight, and worry about only the “big” issues like drug dealing. They go hand in hand. You have a seemingly normal block on a residential street in any neighborhood across this city.
Desmond LeSure Professor Bolton ENGL 1020 19 April 2012 “Is the Three-Strikes Law fair and ethical?” There are individuals who were known as habitual criminals who constantly repeated the cycle of committing a crime, getting arrested, and eventually getting released. In 1993, Americans noticed that this was very costly to the public because the process of arresting and trying these criminals was expensive.
