Janice Clack July 10, 2011 DL02 Save Our Youths from Gang Violence My visual argument shows how gang violence is stealing the future of our youths. Youths join gangs for a variety of reasons, such as protection, money and power, but the end result is always the same, a youth lost to the violence of street life. Their futures are stolen because of their confusion, their lack of knowledge and the lack of people who care about them and their future. These children become known as menaces to society and criminals because of the life-style they have chosen, a life-style that becomes detrimental to their sanity and well-being. They only see their immediate need for protection, becoming a part of a family or money and they fail to see that being in a gang will ruin their lives and dreams while stealing their future.

Police Brutality Steven O’Neal Period 5 There is something that has been on the rise ever since 9/11 and not many Americans know what this is, a sad, but true fact. This is police brutality, where cops abuse their power given to them by law, and mistreat/break rules and regulations. Skateboarders, to wood carvers in Seattle, police around the country have mistreated their power. As many of you know, last year the police officer Ian berk knowingly shot a Native American wood carver named john t. Williams.

There is sometimes only one big room in which the areas are separated slightly. This wouldn’t be a problem if smoke didn’t float across the room to the non-smoking areas.
