It was the fact that the homeless addicts weren’t just sitting around getting high and injecting heroin, but were actually trying to go out and get jobs and homes once again. Most think that these people chose this way of life and that all they care about is their drugs. “Righteous Dopefiend” enlightens us, showing how many of these people became homeless because they were forced onto the streets because they didn’t have the education to get a good job, which to me is very disheartening.

Before reading this book, I believed ethnographies such as these to not be too important.

I believe this is because the negative actions of some police affect the image of the entire police force more than the positive actions. I believe this first because when something negative is said in an article or news report the author does not sought out the officer who did the negative action they just simply say the name of the police force.
The youth involved in gangs have been introduced to the racially discriminated environment because the hatred of other towns and the people that live there, not only because they are enemies but because of their craving of being superior, being better than another race. By being discriminated people feel sad, mad, or sometimes they might not care at all depending on their educational status. “Welcome back nigger” comments like these don’t bother uneducated gang members because the careless mind, focusing only on anything gang related which is what their life revolves. “In my younger years that wouldn’t have bothered me much. But with my new direction and expanded cautiousness, it struck me hard.” Education is the answer to a better understanding of things and a better
The current El Paso Police Department is a prime example. A recent slew of investigations by local news stations in the Sun City revealed several “corrupt” cops who had overstepped their boundaries, or had hidden behind their badge to commit crimes.

To start off the Sean Bell case was an example of Police brutality. Police Brutality is one of the most serious issues of human violation that is unaddressed because of the cover up by fellow police officers during internal investigations. There are many instances when police officers engage in the activities of rough physical behaviors such as shooting, beating, torture and other unnecessary brutal acts among citizens which often result in injury or sometimes even death.

They couldn’t bank at normal banks because banks didn’t carry clerks speaking Italian, so they were stuck banking with crooks they thought to be honest. The immigrants were bleed of their money in most places and looked down on by most. Many people in the city of Chicago disliked immigrants and law enforcement was clearly not concerned with the immigrants’ problems. It wasn’t until the Immigration Protection League that immigrants began to receive fair treatment.

Police Corruption and Misconduct All over the world many police officers abuse the power they are given. In general the job of police is to protect and serve its citizens, to keep them from harm.
