INTRODUCTION The Film “Bowling for Columbine” seeks to investigate and confront the powerful elite political and corporate interests fanning the America culture for their own unscrupulous gain. The United States of America is notoriously known for its astronomical number of people killed by firearms for a developed nation without a civil war. With this signature and sense of angry humour, activist filmmaker Michael Moore sets out to explore the roots of this bloodshed. In doing so, he learns that the conventional answers of easy availability of guns, violent national history, violent entertainment and even poverty are inadequate to explain this violence when other cultures share those same factors without the equivalent carnage. In order to arrive at a possible explanation, Michael Moore takes on a deeper examination of America's culture of fear, bigotry and violence in a nation with widespread gun ownership WHY I CHOOSE THIS FILM I choose this film because Michael Moore talk about reality is not trying to teach us about gun control in America but merely ask about why so many deaths, violent and anger behaviours among people in America than other country.
The film follows a single day in the life of an LAPD cop, Jake Hoyt, who is being evaluated by Detective Alonzo Harris, who is a highly decorated LAPD narcotics officer and who could advance his career. Detective Harris extorts people and drug dealers by using methods not allowed by the legal system to get to the “big bad guys” and for his own personal gains. He kills innocents under the cover of the LAPD badge. Harris explains to him that, “In the undercover world, this is how things work. If you don’t do it this way, you won’t survive”.
Another type of study closer related to sociology is Psychology. Psychology is defined as the scientific study of the human mind and its functions. Which in turn means that it is the study of an individual person. Sociology is basically the same thing but instead of it being one person, it is the study of a large amount of people and why they do certain things. Just like other sciences, sociology uses the scientific method: Defining the problem that is in need of study Reviewing existing literature on the subject Formulating a hypothesis Consider the ethical issues involved Choose a research design Collect and analyze data Draw conclusions Sociologists study society as a 'social science' however the status of sociology as a science is easily questionable when compared to how scientists study the natural world.
Would gun-related deaths per-capa been more accurate? What does Erick Harris and Dylan Klebold’s parents do? Do they work at Lockheed Martin, or in a similar firm? At first glance the movie seems to revolve around gun control. Upon deeper inspection, you realize that this movie is not only on gun control but provides the reasons as to why it is needed.
By comparing the more usefulness a knife has than a gun, sarcasm irradiates when she writes “a general substitution of knives would promote physical fitness” (line 5). The hyperbole used shows that a knife creates physical activity whereas a gun might diffuse the common man from a life of physical fitness; furthermore, the hyperbole shows the passion Ivins has against handgun ownership. When Ivins uses the rhetorical question “how do they know [that owning guns] was the dearest wish of Thomas Jefferson’s heart that the teenage drug dealers should cruise the cities of the nation perforating their fellow citizens with assault riffles,” yet again she expresses her witty style against handgun ownership (16- 18). The exaggeration expressed by Ivins “dearest with of Thomas Jefferson” expresses her passion completely against the ownership of a gun. A tone shift occurs from sarcasm to passionate occurs when Ivins states “a gun is literally the power to kill” (50).
The criminals should be living in fear because they know that their victims have the ability to retaliate when attacked. The fact is that modern gun control laws only protect the criminal and the image of the government’s control over the people. The people of the USA should have the ability to defend themselves, to defend their own freedom, before the country ends up being run by criminals or by an all-powerful and corrupt government like the Hitler
Safety Article #2-504(3)). First, yes pointing a shotgun at a group of people in a way of causing harm is a crime a violent crime. Hence as the law stated they collected his DNA. Perplexing, as one may conceive it but once they say they did it that is it and open for more.
A bullet was chambered and he didn’t realize it! At a Cy Fair High School in the spring of 2009, a supposed unloaded gun when off when a student was showing a friend and they shot a toilet. These examples show that no matter how well trained you are, guns are still dangerous and can kill. Ivins also states in the essay that “It is a crowded, overwhelmingly urban country in which letting people have access to guns is a continuing disaster.” From businesses to private homes, people seem to think they need a gun to feel safe. Even though there are other forms of protection such as alarm systems and guard dogs, people still want guns.
Sociology functions through study of home, family, school and education, religion, government, industry and work. The scientific study of human affairs ultimately provides the body of knowledge and principles that enables us to control the conditions of social life and improve them. Sociology has been an instrument in changing and understanding our attitude towards other human beings. It is through the study of sociology that our whole outlook on various aspects of crime has changed. The criminals are now treated as human beings suffering from mental deficiencies and efforts of rehabilitations are being made.
Sitting on the chair across the glass is juror 8, who was going to be interrogating him. Juror 8, calm and serious, speaking through the microphone, opens up by saying, « Hi, Ill be asking you some questions about the murder of Ken James? » Looking at the floor not making eye contact, Trevor nods. Juror 8 begins the interrogation by saying, « It was obvious that you didn’t live a perfect life, similar to Ken, you weren’t very wealthy, but why did u see killing a man as a good way of making money? Why when Ken’s son offered you the money to kill his father, did you accept?
