Racism, a big part of police misconduct, has become a major problem in the police force. Police officers have a tendency to harass the homeless, young persons, and minorities, among with many other groups of people. Every law enforcement officer or other government official, whether federal, state, county, city, municipal, or otherwise, takes an oath of office and promises to serve and to protect. Unfortunately, over the years we have witnessed such abominations as the Rodney King beating, a graphically disturbing atrocity caught on videotape, or the Nathaniel Jones beating in Cincinnati. We read or hear stories about Amidou Diallo, an unarmed man, being shot forty-one times by the NYPD.
Administration’s Handling of Police Brutality ABSTRACT The community has been subjected, for many decades, to violence by those in law enforcement in the United States. Over the last several hundred years, people have endured violence in many different ways. In today’s society, police officers have used excessive force that leads to inexcusable assaults, beatings, shootings, or even death. This type of violence is called police brutality. Police brutality remains a major concern for those of the community.
These events sparked a domino effect of riots, beatings, bombings and violence centered in Northern Ireland, which occurred over the next thirty years and claimed the lives of more than three thousand civilians and military personnel. But in 1968, violence was occurring all over the globe! In Mexico, student protests were violently put down by the government, resulting in the death of many innocent people . In Prague, Czechoslovakia, a new wave of free thought amongst students led Soviet officials to send troops and tanks into the city streets that put down what they considered “anti-Communist” behavior. Whether it was in these countries or China, France, Argentina, or Germany, people stood up for their rights and were brutally put down by authoritative figures.
It was winter at that time, and as they moved slowly through the deep snow, suddenly, nearby Chinese border patrol police began shooting at them. Kelsang Namtso, a seventeen-year-old nun, was hit by a bullet and killed immediately. Many others were injured, and thirty-two of them were taken into custody. Although later released, they had been tortured and went
Police Brutality Today across the nation racism and police brutality go hand in hand, unfortunately today police brutality is major concern in the United States. Unfortunately when one usually thinks about the subject topic, the biggest incident that comes to mind is the Rodney King trial. The date of Rodney King police brutality incident occurred on March 3, 1991 in the state of California. King, who is African American, was involved in a high speed chase with four Caucasian police officers from the L.A.P.D., once King was eventually pulled over he was approached by four officers; who were by the officers; Stacey C. Koon, Laurence M. Powell, Timothy E. Wind, and Theodore J. Briseno. These four officers kicked King and hit him with their batons more than fifty times while he struggled on the ground.
Uganda Social Conflict Uganda is a country that has had it's fair share of social conflicts. From acts of violence like mass killings of Ugandan people, kidnapping of Ugandan children, raping of Ugandan women. The Ugandan people in certain areas like Northern Uganda live their lives in fear. Violence in Uganda is unlike other social conflicts in the past like the Nazi's period of terror against the Jews, or Great Britain's genocide of the Aborigines of Australia that have been examples of where another country or group of people has used power and violence fueled by hate to cause harm to a different culture. Uganda's massacres and large amounts of death have occured not by another country set on gaining power by force, but by actual people of Uganda committing these acts.
Every day people are getting murdered, raped, and mugged, and every day the people who are doing it are just getting a slap on the wrist and put right back out there. How can someone adequately trust the in the legal system when there seems to be little to no justice being dished out? When victims of a crime are still yet afraid to walk out of their homes at night, they have to have security escort them to their cars at
Aryan Brotherhood, Black Guerilla Family, Mexican Mafia, La Nuestra Familia, Texas Syndicate, and Neta Association. These are the six largest prison gangs in the United States of America. Although a few benefits do exist, prison gangs mostly contribute to a threatening and unsafe atmosphere in today’s penitentiary system. There are hundreds of gangs throughout the system, but only a select few that actually have some sort of pull large enough to garner attention. These main gangs are known for a reputation of murder and assault of fellow inmates, many times with their targets being outside prison walls.
Jack the Ripper fed the flames of class hatred and distrust towards the end of the nineteenth century (Haggard). Jack the Ripper is one of the most studied serial killers because he was the first murderer to be published in newspapers, there is significant evidence about his gruesome murders, and his identity remains a mystery today. Throughout the time the murders took place the police and newspapers were bombarded with letters from a writer claiming to be Jack the Ripper. the first letter to be signed Jack the Ripper was dated September 25 1888, and it was received September 27, 1888 by a news agency (http://ripper.wildnet.co.uk/ripintro.htm). On October 15, 1888, George Lusk, the president of Whitechapel Vigilance committee, received a letter entitled "From Hell" (http://ripper.wildnet.co.uk/ripintro.htm).
Additionally, within North America there are many homeland issues all labelled wars for example the war on drugs, the war on terror, and the war on poverty. This causes a high degree of tension and fear in our nation. As a result there are numerous unnecessary security measures. An ever-vigilant society perpetuates violence against enemies that do not even exist. Today, teens have an increased access to media.
