Drug gangs continue to lower the bar on age when recruiting children. Children as young as 9 years old are helping such gangs by becoming lookouts, informants, and assassins. I can go deep into the subject of child warriors because I just wrote a long paper on drug trafficking. It is something I strongly disagree with, once again, and find it should be highly illegal all around the world. Lenn Goodman quotes, “They are exploited to commit atrocities in irregular armies-notably, the Tamil Tigers, but in many other forces too-for their relative physical and moral helplessness, childish fearlessness, desperate poverty, alienation, anger, or isolation,” (Goodman, 2010).
One afternoon, McDougal goes into Krunch’s candy shop, looks at the candy, and picks up a $1 candy bar. Seeing that Krunch is very busy, he catches Krunch’s eye, waves the candy bar at Krunch without saying a word, and walks out. Question Is there a contract? If so, classify it within the categories listed in this chapter. I believe that there is an implied contract here between McDougal and Krunch.
Social norms are what keep a society running smoothly on a daily basis. But the question remains, what happens when a norm is broken? Cutting in line has been an unspoken law since kindergarten, so I wanted to see how grown men and women would react to being “cut”. I went into my friendly neighborhood Safeway on a Thursday night, and as usual the lines were ridiculous. I used to work at this particular store, so I spoke to all of the employees and the manager about my social experiment so that I wouldn’t get in too much trouble.
I am not surprised that people have started to fear them. I strongly believe that it's wrong to think that a man could be a rapist because he looks like one. I could look like a crack addict because of a bad hair day but my appearance doesn't make me one. The truth is that the officers responded way too quickly to Diallo's actions. Maybe if they had waited to see what he was taking out of his pocket, he could be alive today.
According to eye-witnesses he was described as suspicious, jumped over a ticket barrier and was wearing a wearing a bulky jack supposedly concealing a device. However footage from scene indicated that this was not the case at all, as he was wearing a light shirt or jacket and walked through the ticket barrier. According to Wells and Olson (2002) psychological researchers have consistently demonstrated the flaws in accuracy of witness identification. Investigating filmed events and live staged crimes studies, researchers have indicated that mistaken identification rates can be significant and that eyewitnesses often demonstrate confidence when they mistakenly select someone from a lineup. Mistaken eyewitness identification has been shown to be the most common cause of wrongful conviction, as seen by recent DNA exonerations.
A crime involves a concurrence between actus reus (act) and mens rea (intent). In the Kuntrell Jackson case, it is possible that accomplice liability applied at the trial because Jackson was knowledgeable of the crime of robbery prior to it being committed; a robbery that did not happen, as nothing was stolen, yet it turned into a crime of murder and the loss of a woman’s life. Additionally, Kuntrell standing outside the video store while the other two boys went inside may have constituted his acting as a watchdog for law enforcement or witnesses to the
The setting of this community was in regular class room and we would meet Monday to Friday for one hour to discuss and take actions on our daily and long-term goals. After following the same practice for about a year, the discourse community failed to accomplish its main goal as most of the students failed the AP Calculus exam. There was something wrong with the methods of written communication in this community. The methods of written communications could have been improved and changed to better help students to accomplish the main goal like the teacher should solve the problems step by step and provide explanation, the teacher should go over the homework with the students, the students and/or teacher should make a pre-quiz/test, the teacher should upload the lessons online teaching how to solve some problems, and we should make class activities more fun
“You didn’t call the person did you?” “Actually I did”. “Oh I thought you weren’t I have to do everything.” “Yeah but I did it”. “Yeah but you never do though” Louis CK – O&A 30 Halloween I had a friend who would dress up in a spider-man outfit and he waited till the end of the night and went around stealing kid’s candy. He would go up to kids, take the candy, push their heads down in the dirt and leave them crying… and he didn’t even like candy that much. And that’s when I discovered something awful about myself because I never saw anything that horrible in my life – I was lying on the ground laughing.
Murder was next, then receiving stolen goods. Everything else was very minimal in comparison to these crimes. These are some crimes that would have punishments attached if the accused criminal was caught- Vagrancy, heresy, theft, murder, scold, witchcraft, highway robbery, rebellion/treason, rape, manslaughter and more. People only started smuggling tobacco, brandy, tea, silk and other stuff of the sort in the 1700 when the government paced a 'tariff' on them. There were many forms of punishment for different crimes and some depending on gender.
Broadcasting Vs. Nursing Broadcasting has always been a huge interest of mine even though nursing has been stuck in the back of my mind since a young age. Everyone always wants to be some sort of doctor at some point of their lives whether it is because of the money outcome or if it is just wanting to be in a doctor suit, at least that is what I always thought. But after researching both careers, I learned that a job in the medical field such as nursing really is not the career for me. My personality is beyond out going and creative, which doesn’t really fit into the characteristics of a nurse or any type of doctor.
