Matt Breslow 5/1/12 English 12 Carnright Teen Curfews Research Paper If your son/daughter was out past 9 p.m., would you feel safe? Many people have said no to this question with all the crime in the streets as of now. With the 2,800 juveniles that were arrested for homicide in 1994 (Teen Curfews), many people wouldn’t want their kids to be in that statistic. Because of this high number of arrested teens, they began to have curfews that made kids stay inside their homes after a set time. These curfews were made to enforce the law and try to lower the teen crime rate.
I find it outrageous that we have spent millions of dollars for the well being of these children and to have mental care for them to not even do their job. In the 1970’s, mental illness and emotional disturbance in children was understood to be their form of disobedience. They thought that this behavior behavior was to be treated harshly with brutal and unjust punishment. At Gatesville in Texas, They were so worried about keeping the towns money in that they kept children for this purpose. It’s irrational of them to keep all of the staff when over half of the institutions populations were released just so that they can keep their jobs.
Illinois is the only state with no form of the newly issued law surrounding the subject of Conceal and Carry. The main reason this Midwest state does not have a newly amended constitution is primarily due to Governor Pat Quinn and his fellow democrat Mayor of Chicago Richard Daley. Quinn said he fears letting people carry guns would only escalate tense situations and lead to shootings that might otherwise be avoided (Garcia par. 2). He said he is also concerned that Illinois’ gun licensing system would not be able to handle an increased workload and said there are concerns that the current screening process is not thorough enough to keep guns out of the hands of the mentally ill (Garcia
Proposition 8 was a 2008 California ballot measure that outlawed same-sex marriage. It undid a decision by the state Supreme Court from earlier that year that found an earlier ban to be illegal. Since its passage, Proposition 8 has been the subject of court actions and has continued to be one of the central battlefields in the fight over same-sex marriage in the United States. In August 2011, a federal district judge found that Proposition 8 — passed by California voters by a margin of 52 percent to 48 percent — violated the equal protection rights of two same-sex couples that brought the suit. The proposition placed a specific prohibition in the State Constitution against marriage between two people of the same sex.
“What if that little boy doesn’t have anybody to take care of him? He said. What if he doesn’t have a papa?” The boy needs his father to make sure that he makes it through his life safely. While going through it all, the father also needs to teach his son the priorities and the necessities of living in that time period and the circumstances that was present. He needs to teach him to take care of himself before anybody else so he can make it through.
SUBJECT: 10th Year Anniversary of PREA –Not a Cause to Celebrate… Dear Friends, We are contacting you to assist us with outreach with the Prison Rape Elimination Act (PREA). Ten years ago this week, President Bush signed the Prison Rape Elimination Act (PREA) into law, legislation to end sexual violence behind bars. This decade anniversary is not cause to celebrate. Governors will have to certify compliance with the PREA by this year and many states are not in compliance with this law. During the last decade, the lack of urgency in implementing this law has resulted in nearly 1,000,000 youth being at risk of sexual victimization in adult jails and prisons.
When a black person got murdered by someone, it was always overlooked, they found more black mens bodies when they searched for the three civil rights workers, all of which went unnoticed. It was a bold move, but one that was needed to bring attention to Mississippi and the cause they were fighting for. Three events that are critical moments in the civil rights include: On December 1, 1955, Rosa Parks, a 42 year old black woman, refused to give up her seat on a bus for a white man. She was arrested and convicted of breaking the laws. She appealed the conviction and challenged segregation laws.
02-02-2012 Smarthinking rough draft English 1010 Hate Crime My husband and I lived in a very rural community as we were expecting the birth of our first child. We had speculations that some of our neighbors didn’t agree with an interracial couple moving into their community, and over the next several months we realized that what we had feared the most was true. A few examples of racism that stick out in my mind the most occurred shortly after my first bi-racial child’s birth On several different occasions we would be coming home and a car would whip out behind us driving fast and would ride our bumper. The driver of the car was driving like they had an emergency and needed to pass. We would slow down to wave the car to pass
Argument Essay Sara M. Linert Grand Canyon University English Composition II November 28, 2010 Sex Trafficking seems to be increasing in the United States. I am 100% against the trafficking of any human being regardless of age or sex. The United States government estimates that 50,000 women and children are trafficked into the United States with most being transported from Asia, Latin America, Russia, and the New Independent States. Being a mother of two this issue really concerns me and touches my heart. I cannot imagine the pain and suffering these young girls and women dealt with during this horrible experience and how they even recover and live a normal life afterward.
They are forced to live in very crowded places for example some are forced to live in a place where ten people are living in at the same time giving them no privacy to do their necessities. They live in places with no boundaries to separate them from one room to another. The children are faced to live with the risk of catching a deadly infection and non deadly infections due to not having any health insurance. Most children in poverty haven’t seen a doctor in a very long time only when the doctors that volunteer to help children in poverty is when they get the chance to see one. If it wasn’t for that I don’t think they would ever see one in their lives.
