How is the issue of violence represented in the lives of individuals in your core text and in one other related text? Violence is presented in Blackrock and Harry Brown through the issues of, the negative influence of peers, the influence of drugs, and powerlessness. These can be seen in various scenes in both texts where youths are creating harmful situations for themselves and others around them. These issues can be examined in the scene where Ricko and Jared fight which causes the relationship between them to melt. In Harry Brown, night raids turn into a large scale riot which is a powerful example of the negative influence of peers.
I believe if education was mandatory and if there were equal education opportunities for all the people in Annawadi the amount of poverty would be minimized. I believe it would also decrease the amount of corruption in the society. I think it would make a positive impact on the hospitals and other government ran facilities. Without education, people are not exposed to new ideas and innovation. Education one of the things that derives people to change what is not benefiting them.

Financing these activities exceed national levels of debt; Worldometers real time world statistics reports that $329,576,150,900 and counting have been spent on illegal drugs this year (Worldometers Statistics, 2012) The amplitude of this problem has become out of reach for our neighbors, state and local drug agencies, Federal Drug Enforcement, national and transnational Security this problem has to be regulated, enforced
The bias that the media place on police statistics make it appear that the police force are more successful than they truly are, creating misleading statistics. This bias is formed as the police are a major source of crime stories and wish to portray themselves in a positive light and also due to the over exaggeration that the media places on crime. In some cases the media is seen as a cause of crime, as it has a negative effect on attitudes, values and behaviour. The media’s influence is seen to affect certain groups more than others, these groups are usually more susceptible to influence than others like the young, lower class and uneducated. The media influences these groups through many ways, such as imitation by creating a deviant role model encouraging “copycat” behaviour.
Offering work programs that help prepare young people for management or skilled positions is a good way to take crime off of the streets while showing to the community that the business cares about the welfare of the population. This can help bring in a group of potential profit earners for the company while at the same time reducing crime in the stores and the surrounding neighborhood. The improved reputation could only serve to bring in shoppers who are more prone to visit the larger and cheaper chains such as Walmart. While this will incur immediate liability costs as the plan is enacted, the end result benefiting the shareholders is a cheaply trained future leadership staff, an improved reputation for the company as a whole, and a long term boost in
In some states, the individual must be convicted of two serious felonies for the three strikes law to apply, while in others any felonies count towards the third strike. Critics of the three strike law express many strong arguments against their harsh legal statute. Our society has ultimately had an issue with the three strikes law. Some people have said that the law “destroys the flexibility of the courts and the judge, it is unjust in certain conditions, and it adds more criminals to an already crowded and expensive criminal system”
Also how many great lawyers want to prove defendants innocent? Criminal law chargers can change a person future forever. It can ruin their families’ lives, it can ruin their jobs, ruin friendships, and even how a whole community will look at you. Why I do believe that investigators should do whatever it take to catch a criminal, sometimes they do go too far just because of the press and how people want someone to be caught. Pressure hurts an investigation more than anything.
Racism is a huge example. Members of racial minorities bear the brunt of police brutality and excessive force in many parts of the U.S....Reported abuses include racist language, harassment, ill-treatment, unjustified stops and searches, unjustified shootings and false arrests (Randall). African Americans are the ones who usually end up being harassed by cops. “In bigger towns, blacks are more likely to commit violent acts, police officers concerned with self preservation are more likely to use violence when dealing with them” (Kester police
Three major sources of strain: the failure to achieve positively valued goals, the loss of positively valued stimuli, and the presentation of negative stimuli. The first type of strain includes three subtypes: the failure to achieve ideal goals, the failure to achieve all expectations, and the failure to be treated in a just fair manner. agressvive demands of sexual or physical abuse “The delinquent accepts society’s norms that place an importance on the ownership of certain things, but inequalities, such as poverty, prevent their attainment,” therefore turning to life of crime. social disorganization promote crime and include disrupted, dysfunctional and impaired households; ethnic and racial, ; and the development of "deviant" subcultures, even though they specified that such subcultures are not entirely distinct from the conventional-dominant culture but rather deviant in the sense of fostering at least the tolerance of certain behaviors. frustrations or the lack of access to legitimate opportunities happen to create forms of social disorganization.
The minimum wage that welfare reform was expecting people to live off of was in fact not enough to even support the buying of food. In Working poor, working hard Katherine Newman expounds on the fact that welfare benefits are cut off at low levels and unavailable to those that earn minimum wage and work a forty-hour week. Newman also states that only a “combination of the two income streams [welfare and a job] make it possible to manage…life.” (Newman) These two sources only emphasize the already established fact that welfare reform must be reformed
