Individuals have also made good arguments about the negative outcome that racial profiling might bring to our society. Obviously it has led the dominant race to have superiority to the minorities – racial discrimination. James Zogby, the president of the Arab-American Institute have made a point that he have seen a lot of dark skinned people being searched and treated with humiliation, which is really wrong – Racial Relations. David Harris, a writer and Professor at Toledo College, have already written a couple of books about racial profiling. He states that law enforcers think that they would be more accurate in targeting a suspicious group, but in reality, what happens is the total opposite wherein officials have inaccurate results in targeting the suspect—Race Relations.
Through the use of conventions such as characterisation we find that the theme of prejudice is explored in to kill a mockingbird. Innocence is represented through symbols and literal meanings. the use of innocence in the novel highlights the theme of prejudice and influences the response from the reader. As the story evolves we find that maycomb is not all that it seems to the protagonist scout and her brother jem, as they grow older they experience the harsh reality of prejudice and eventually see the unjust end it takes on Tom Robisnson we find that prejudice is an integral part to the structure of "to kill a mockingbird" The idea of innocence is conveyed through the characterisation of Boo Radley, Boo Radleys innocence in the eyes of maycomb influences main ideas and meanings. Innocence is shown through the characterisation of Boo as a harmless man, he lives with his brother and leaves the house rarely he has little protection from the outside world, this can be related to a section of the book where Atticus says to scout and jem "Shoot all the bluejays you want, if you can hit 'em, but remember it's a sin to kill a mockingbird."
He does this in an attempt to soften the people of Maycomb and make them think in a non-racist way. In the real world, there are several examples of people buying into an assumption and believing it even though it contradicts their morals. This is called stereotyping in the real world. Stereotyping is when a person lacks information about a person or group of people, and creates a usually false piece of information to fill the abyss that is the lack of knowledge. A plethora of stereotypes exist in the world, all of which are perfect examples of the stereotyping Mr. Gilmer did in the Tom Robinson trial, saying that all blacks lie.
The actus reus is that the victim must suffer actual bodily harm as a result of the battery. In this case Ken has broken his nose as the result of Toby’s punches. The mens rea is intentionally or recklessly inflicting unlawful force on the victim. Even if Toby did not intend actual bodily harm or foresaw a risk that his act might cause actual bodily harm, it would still satisfy the mens rea as S47 is a constructive offence. In this case Toby has been reckless and it seems that he also intended to cause the harm because he was angry.

The purpose in doing this was to make him believe that he could deprive himself of all sorrows by forcing others to feel the way he has felt in the past. Essentially Harris has led himself to believe that he could trace the acts of evil which occurred throughout his life by identifying violent acts upon other people. And thus, the joy that the defendant felt after murdering these two boys is reflected through the affliction he suffered while growing up. In order for him to make sense of the past violence he needed to project these experiences outward so as to regenerate the meaning that was originally brought forth from past experiences. Moreover, without Harris’ past afflictions the uttermost euphoria that occurred while murdering these boys would
What Anthony did make people believe that African American males are more likely to do crime and are gangbangers. Cameron believes that Anthony can change his reckless behavior and try to make a change so that others will not view blacks as hostile people. Anthony actions promote the stereotypes against African-Americans. In addition, because of that people live down to others’ expectations of
Ridley states, “exchange is twice blest: it blesseth him that gives and him that takes” (101). Trade is what feeds progress and prosperity. By dehumanizing one group of people, both groups lose the opportunity to grow. The fear of those who are different causes humans to create the idea of us against them. The dehumanization of another group allows unthinkable crimes to be committed; neither party is benefited by this separation.
Sometimes even confabulating the information into one’s own memory. Interrogators can do this by presenting false evidence persuading a suspect to believe that it is their own memory which is failing them and not the criminal justice system. Similar techniques, such as the ones used against Michael Crowe during his interrogation of his sister's murder, make a suspect feel as though their own family believes his guilt. In the case of Michael Crowe's false confession, the suspect understood that the interrogators were the only ones trying to help him. After hours of being asked to describe a crime, Michael began to imagine the actual crime.

In a world where so many people do wrong, some good people still try to do right. One prime example is Mr. Ewell’s death. Everyone knew Mr. Ewell was incorrect when he wrongfully accused Tom Robinson of rape.
