Social Trust is the idea of ‘faith in people’. Today less Americans believe they can rely on their neighbours and people around them than ever before. Putnam view is this is due to the declining numbers joining group activities and never fully explores other reasoning for this, for instance the media. Most news broadcasts lead with negative reports, as bad/devastating news grabs more attention. The medias delivery of a negative viewpoint is bound to have an impact on it subscribers, their view of the world and society could become more
He claims that there is not much of the American dream left and that “we’ve become a hapless, can’t-do society, and it’s frankly, embarrassing” (Herbert, 566). He blames the poor policies, decline of the educational system, and the costly wars we cannot afford for our country’s loss of the idolized perception we have of the American dream. He defines the American dream as jobs provided for all who want to work and provide salaries large enough to allow employees to have a decent standard of living. Herbert urges the idea that raising taxes will help the issue of inequality amongst Americas classes and will help us pay for the wars overseas. Robert H. Frank, author of “Income Inequality: Too Big to Ignore”, supports Herbert’s beliefs.
In the beginning policing was considered the civic duty of members of a community. These “drafted” officers were not paid or trained. Appointed Sheriffs were motivated by money, and lost focus on enforcing the law. This began to change as did society, and industrialism. Urbanization brought with it a rise in crime, causing police to shift towards a more proactive approach to law enforcement.
The Mayor has put fear in people hearts, not calmed scenarios like he was hired to do. People are wishing they could get rid of this Mayor who has not done much good for the City of Los Angeles, but gets paid an awful lot of money. Money that could be helping our City in its financial crisis. The question has been raised “Can we not choose to get rid of the Mayor Antonio R. Villaraigosa and his pay check, over our loyal employees?” Well unfortunately, the City technically needs a Mayor and the people can not overpower the one they have in
I believe that the top three environmental issues are; air pollution, lack of green space, and lack of public transportation systems. Nowadays, I see less green space around the houses and in the neighborhood and one of the reasons could be because of compact houses and less out door space. Air pollution is a huge environmental issue because it can lead to poor health. Pollution also affects the environment and looking at the research I realized the forests, US National Wildlife Refuse, and environmental recreation areas are far from the cities and it could be because of the pollution. One of the biggest reasons for pollution is lack of public transportation.
This means the government does not see the need to have as many fire men/women and therefore made many redundant and closed down fire stations in order to save money. This has caused an upset, both with fire men and women local residents as they believe the service times may increase as there is not as many available in comparison to before the redundancies. The same can be said about the police force, there has been a vast decrease between the amount of people the police force take on and train and allow to become a member of the police force as they simply cannot take on the amount that may be needed due to government cutbacks and financial policies. However, a positive affect that can be said about financial policies that result on cutbacks for public services could be that as money is saved for example in reducing the amount of fire stations and fire men/women, the money could be invested in an alternative public service such as the paramedic service or the NHS in order to
However the City Council must accept the validity of arguments around promoting and enhancing the life of our city. CURRENT SITUATION The current situation is unsatisfactory from a number of perspectives. No sporting field and rugby or rugby events are available to members of our community. Newburgh seems to lack considerably by not having this kind of sporting facility. Currently this means that sporting fans are obliged to take a trip to larger towns like Oldburgh if they wish to go to a rugby match or attend an athletics fixture.
The lack of awareness among the citizen made it difficult for the partnership to continue to grow. To increase public knowledge, the City used several media outlets, professional athletes, and public outreach programs, using the slogan “Safe Neighborhoods Are Everybody’s Business” to encourage involvement with CAPS. According to The Chicago Community Policing Evaluation Consortium’s 2004 evaluation, awareness was still low among the residents who are Spanish speaking, lower income, younger adults, and men (The Chicago Community Policing Evaluation Consortium,
The next issue is false data in gang activity decreasing. For example, gang activity decreasing because gang members are getting older and are aging out of the gang not because the programs are working. The last issue is that we try to take local programs that have success at a small city level and try to make them work nationally. For example what might have worked in Pittsburgh would not work at a national level because not all cities are the same demographically or size. 2.
Homeless people are filling the streets mostly because there are not many job opportunities being created. Our country needs more jobs in order to begin this so called, "Change." The next subject I will talk about is the environment. Let's just say that it's not the best. All of the factories out there are producing a lot of pollution.
