If they don't approve of those people, they might harass them, steal from them, and even murder them. Hate crimes are always intentional it seems like, hate crimes may physically wound and may effectively intimidate other members of the victim's family or even community, leaving them feeling terrorized, isolated, vulnerable, and unprotected by the law. That is why the necessity for hate crime laws needs to be updated and improved to protect the people that have been affected by these terrible crimes. We cannot ban
You see, the old way wasn’t workin’, so it’s on us to do what we gotta do, to survive.” I believe the third verse explains what Shakur meant by this statement. Shakur believed that the government was more concerned with the war that was being fought in the Middle East, and the war on drugs in the black neighborhoods, than they were with the wellbeing of black people. He felt that the government was wasting time arresting the drug dealers and addicts; instead Shakur felt that the government should have waged a war on poverty. Shakur stated that every crime he committed was necessary, in order for him to survive. Additionally Shakur also stated that people should not let the police treat them unjustly Shakur believed that the police did not like to see Black People with nice material things; he felt it made them jealous and angry.
Hate crime can be defined differently based on the crime, the group or individual that is the victim, and the group or the individual doing the crime. A local, state, or federal law defines a hate crime as harm from a threat, a physical action, or harassment towards someone’s differences. The differences can include race, sexual orientation, religion or even someone’s disability (US Legal, 2012). Many resources can be found that talk about hate crime and the people that the hate crimes are against. Race is one of the
Recently there have been several attacks that are nationally publicized for their inconceivable cruelty. Cruelty doesn’t really capture the injustice and breeches of morality that are associated with the murders of children, defenseless men, women, and children. We- the country- is baffled with these attacks. Feeling the pressure to solve these problems on a national level, a societal level, a political level; even on our own individual levels. It is imperative to note that these attacks aren’t just gun related, but are committed using methods designed to make sure the highest number of people are hurt or killed as possible- the killers are attacking with the intent to kill people, innocent or not, on a mass level with no care for their own
Hate Crimes Hate Crime, just the word hate seems to bring a sort of uneasiness too many people, add in the word crime and all sorts of thoughts and emotions start running through my head. According to the “Merriam –Webster” (2014) “dictionary the definition of hate crime states; any of various crimes (as assault or defacement of property) when motivated by hostility to the victim as a member of a group (as one based on color, creed, gender, or sexual orientation)”. Any and everyone can be a victim of a hate crime. There are many different types of hate crimes that are based on a person’s race, religion, disability, gender, and a person’s sexual orientation. The word hate crime didn’t come to light until the 1980’s but it is a known factor
I do not believe this to be true, I believe that long-term imprisonment is what criminals are not afraid of. It is said that the death penalty encourages and legitimizes unlawful killing. But let’s think about it “murder, is unlawful and undeserved while the death penalty is lawful and deserved for unlawful act.” Imprisonment will never be a harsh enough punishment because they live off of our taxes, and it is sad to say that we are paying to keep these criminals alive. But most religious people will argue that capital punishment is breaking one of the Ten Commandments but the bible also says that “it is an eye for an eye.” That statement does not mean that when a person does something to you, you do it back but God put rules and people on this earth and gave them choices to make and I feel that if you truly love your brothers and sisters within this world the death sentence is appropriate because your are keeping them from hurting any other people. So many non-supporters of the death penalty say they are against it because of racial discrimination, or how it treats humans as like animal, or that it is cruel and unusual, or that retribution is another word for revenge and therefore they believe that life imprisonment is a just enough punishment.
Hate Crimes Stacie Warner COM 156 March 9, 2013 Professor Vera Burright The FBI defines a hate crime as “a traditional offense like murder, arson, or vandalism with an added element of bias.” So that government agencies can collect statistics, Congress defines a hate crime as a “criminal offense against a person or property motivated in whole or in part by an offender’s bias against a race, religion, disability, ethnic origin, or sexual orientation. Incidents that are called crime hates may involve, but are not limited to physical assault, bullying, damage to property, verbal abuse or insults, harassments, offensive graffiti, letters or hate mail. Intended hurt towards another
These criminals deserve the worst death penalty for breaking American laws. They know that there are consequences and that they will get caught in the long run. Now many people argue if the death penalty is constitutional and there have been many controversies over the death penalty. Argument is: Whether the United States should keep this punishment or abolish it completely. Very few nations such as The United States, Iran, China, and other nations leave the death penalty as an option depending on the victim then there are a few other nations that completely abolished the law of killing someone by using the death penalty.
Boeckmann (2002) writes, “ The collective focus on hate crime and hate speech articulated in these articles incorporates nuances that go beyond the FBI’s definition” (p. 208). The definition does not account for elements like prejudice against a victim based upon an assessment of contrast or oddness important to the culprit. The disparity is motivated by a number of prestigious characteristics viewed extremely unwelcoming by the culprit; hence, the result is the violent act. Sadly, hate crimes stems from the beauty of differences in ethnicities, races, beliefs, cultures, and class
Crime Data Comparison Paper A hate crime is the victimization of a person based upon certain characteristics such as religion, race, age, gender, sexual orientation, or ethnicity. Bias motivated acts of violence are categorized as hate crimes. These crimes include but are not limited to assault, harassment, rape, vandalism, and even murder. Hate crimes can be far more serious than other comparable crimes that do not involve bias because these crimes are intended to intimidate an entire group. Acts of violence are commonplace in the U.S. and something that many people have to deal with on a daily basis.
