For example, when Steve wanted Lou’s job he staged the game not giving him access to computer which prevented him from making any changes to heating and lighting system. On one long weekend he asked his employees to turn on the lights and heat of school for few hours which drew a lot of power to negatively impact his performance. On another occasion he told his employees to change the lights even when they didn’t require replacement and used this against Lou to get him fired from the job. He staged all of this to
However, bobby Kennedy had become passionately anti-war and publicly opposed the war from January 1966. Johnson privately insulted ‘Nervous Nellies’ who disagreed with him about Vietnam, calling one senator a ‘prick’, Senator Fulbright ‘Senator Halfbright’ and Bobby Kennedy ‘spineless’. Johnson considered the Kennedy-McNamara friendship dangerous. One reason why McNamara ceased to be secretary of defence is, that he wanted to decrease the fighting for the U.S and hand over the conflict to South Vietnam. In an early November 1967 memo to Johnson, McNamara's recommendation to freeze troop levels, stop bombing North Vietnam and for the U.S. to hand over ground fighting to South Vietnam was rejected outright by the President.
Under William Anderson, a number of local black organisations were formed in an attempt to desegregate the city. By mid-December, 500 demonstrators had been jailed. Anderson invited King’s help to maintain the movement and secure national publicity for the non-violent protest. The tactics of non-violence however did not work because the Head of Police in Albany, Laurie Pritchett, had learned from previous protests and campaigns that no violence should be used against the protestors to ensure less media coverage and less sympathy for the black protestors. Pritchett went on to arrest protestors but he made sure that the jails were not filled by them.
Des Moines Independent School District (1965) Issue: You Have the Right to Express Yourself Up to A Certain Point Three teens wore black armbands to a school in Des Moines, Iowa, to protest the war in Vietnam. School officials told them to remove the armbands, and when they refused they were suspended, and the parents sued the district, claiming it was in violation of their first amendment right of freedom of speech. When the Supreme Court got the case and looked it over they sided with the students they said “students and teachers don’t shed their constitutional rights to freedom of speech or expression at the schoolhouse gate”. The court did not grant students to an unlimited right ti self
Dropout rates and other violent crimes may contribute from continuous suspension and expulsion. “Just imagine if a student just committed a crime for example, doing graffiti on the lockers. Then the student is sent to the principal tells the student that their suspended. The student will now feel very sad and happy at the same time because they just got suspended. This can ruin his life and at the same time, the students could dropout from school and do whatever they like.”(Dale) When students get expelled from schools, there would be no hope for them and they would no longer care about their education and their future goals.
The old lady I hit was not taking any chances and called the police. I took a look around and noticed it was just me. Apparently my friend’s wanted no part of the police showing up. When the police showed up he asked for my permit I told him I didn’t have one. The police officer lectured for a while then put me in the back of the police car.
The Tsar implemented the October Manifesto which made lots of promises to the people. A new government or Duma was elected initially by the people however, after presenting the Tsar with a series of demands at their first meeting, he rejected all the proposals and shut it down, which he did three times. The Duma initially calmed the protesting public but it didn’t take long for them to realise that the Duma actually got no say in policy or legislation and how the country was run. On the other hand the Tsarist regime chose not to deal with the problems faced by the industrial workers. These ‘urban peasants’ were having to work fourteen hours a day, six days a week in horrendous factory conditions for a very low pay.
The Schools are destroying Freedom of Speech According to the article written by John W. Whitehead, “The Schools are Destroying Freedom of Speech,” John W. Whitehead stated that teachers are hindering students from learning or being allowed to exercise their constitutional rights. Schools don’t have the right or authority to hinder students from not offend or cause harm to others. There were two occasions documented and went as far as to the Supreme Court, how teachers and administrations pulled the plug on several valedictorian students during graduations; while sharing a censored speech on their religion and their feelings, (John W. Whitehead, 2009). On occasions, teachers and administrators reviewed and had students to take out what they thought would affect the audience or what was against certain regulations of the school. However, the students felt the need to express their thoughts, ideas and feelings in the way they felt.
The second is shared tension or unrest; the crowd at Penn State was forming because they all were opposed to the firing of Joe Paterno and Graham Spanier. The third characteristic is attention focused on a single stimulus or people gathering to watch or hear one thing. The crowd at Penn State was waiting to hear the universities board of trustees’ decision on what to do with situation. The fourth is inhibition of other stimuli meaning your attention is focused on one thing so you ignore all others. The students were undoubtedly focused on the news conference.
Now the whole school is on lockdown, and no students are doing anything until they find the jewelry. By the time they the thief, the school day is over, and it’s time to go home. No on has learned anything in school today. If there would had been dress codes is that school, this drama would have never taken place and everyone would’ve learned something and challenged their minds. Like my professor says “ A mind is a terrible thing to waste.” I agree that dress codes will not make public schools perfect, but i can guarantee that it will make a big difference.
