Drug Trafficking in the United States from Mexico Drug trafficking in the United States and Mexico is a huge problem for the United States because it has a negative impact on other areas in society such as crime rates. The government needs to find a solution to better control drug trafficking because it claims lives and destroys families. Research shows Marijuana and Cocaine are the top two most illegally abused drugs in the United States. James Gray (2001) points out: Not only is this drug-money corruption problem of enormous concern in its own right, but additional lawless behavior often is derived from it as well. For example, the entire southern California area was shocked in September 1999 when a former officer of the Rampart Division
Anyone who was positive in the movie they tried to hurt or they killed them off. Young minorities are faced with theses images everyday from music videos on down to television shows and I feel that it was an awful depiction of black culture. I do feel that the movie is detrimental and can taint a young urban minorities mind; it could lead young men and women to idolize criminal lifestyle. When Goldie refers to himself as a “hero” I could almost imagine what is going on in a young teenager’s mind. Their probably thinking the movie was great or they want to sell drugs, be a player or pimp just like him without seeing the truth.
Every conflict has its significant implications on administrative and departmental officer procedures. The mainly problem that always occurring is the physical brutality, which the main goal is to get the police department to enforce and adopt a written policy. However, polices limiting actions will bring most of debate especially from the police officers themselves. “Many feel that their firepower is already too weak to battle the weapons criminals have on the streets, and limiting their legality of gun use will not only endanger them, but the innocent bystanders who must endure the hierarchy gun power creates in the benefit of criminals.” (Bouza, Anthony. 1990) It’s necessary to ask help from the superior officers so that a tolerance of brutality will not establish.
This led to millions of albums beings sold because people began to feed into the hype and joined in on the war. Their carelessness led to multiple people being killed including 2pac and Biggie. They clearly did not care about the message they were sending to the world and to the youth but rather how much money they could make, even at the expense of others. Secular rappers produce the vulgar and sexually explicit lyrics that they do because they know that today's youth are curious and that they are trying to quench their sinful desires. According to Ohha.com , not only in a song made by makaveli, but also in a song made by 50 cent, they both claim that they have "sold their souls to the devil in order to gain riches."
Knowing who you have patrolling the streets and protecting the public is very important. Training needs to be another tool used to reduce police violence. As a military police officer we were trained on the basics, how to handle a weapon and riots but never on police brutality. Police officers should have to go through mandatory situations or issues that they would encounter in real life working for the police department. Training is a very positive and educational way to raise awareness and knowledge.
The media only portrays the teenagers as the bad guys regardless whether an adult was involved in that action or case; the headlines always include the word teenager. If an adult pays a teenage girl to have sex is called teenage prostitution. Or a teenage girl getting pregnant by a 20 year old male is called teenagers getting teenagers pregnant. The same concept comes in account when violence is talked about. Even though stats say something else, the media automatically portrays the teenagers as the bad guy.
The language features used throughout the article ‘Party crawl turns ugly’ is bias and portrays teens in a negative form. Emotive language is shown when Kate Higgins refers to teenagers jumping fences, throwing rocks, entering into people’s property and trashing the streets. Higgins has also used over exaggeration and intensifiers within her article as she suggest that there was over 200 intoxicated youths. Also as you can see on the PowerPoint almost all of the interviews that were published were those which mocked or criticized the teens. There was only one interview which was
Steroids, Greatly Misunderstood It’s not your typical everyday conversation between you, friends, and family but when the subject of steroid use is brought up immediately everyone thinks of oversized muscle heads suffering from either “roid-rage“ or suicidal tendencies. In actuality these are extreme cases that get extra hype and publicity because of the few but intense incidents that the media focus their attention on. This skeptic view created by the news stations across our nation has tarnished the use of steroids and the benefits they bring with an image of drug dealers and deformed body builders. How dangerous are steroids? Anabolic steroids are essentially extremely safe and greatly beneficial for numerous health complications.
There has been many cases where steroids, because it is a felony to sell them, has had similar circumstances to other popular drugs such as cocaine. These circumstances are people are being robbed and shot over them. Steroids have made it to the black market and are being sold as if they were other big name drugs such as ecstasy and cocaine. Due to the rising popularity of anabolic steroids, these instances of violence and gang related activity with them will only become worse, until you can find steroids on the streets like other drugs. This is where the problems occur, but if the distribution of steroids was heavily monitored by the government that would prevent this from
Moreover, people have been using crack cocaine for several years as a means of dealing with problems they have in life. Crack cocaine is a drug with widespread availability that makes a person from any part of the world addicted and as a result, that person takes unbelievable changes with his or her life to feed the dependency affecting the lives of many people.
