These measures outweighed many individual rights, including due-process rights and the right not to be tortured (Pollock, 2010). This removal of due-process from suspects was "so detainees and aliens could be held without charges for extended periods in investigation detentions" (Pollock, 2010, p.487)....   [tags: Criminal Justice]

In the past it was just the Allies involved.

The Moral Standards of Our Nation - The Moral Standards of Our Nation In the past morals were mostly guided by religion. Most people believed strongly in their religion, and followed the rules very carefully, for fear of sin and punishment. However nowadays, religion is not such an important factor of life and morals are guided by personal conscience and to fit in with others. Many things which were unacceptable in society just a few centuries ago are now everyday life occurrences. For example, divorce. Not long ago it was frowned upon and thought of as a great sin to get divorced....   [tags: Papers] 368 words

mike bloomberg - Mike Bloomberg is running for mayor of New York City. The elections will be held Nov.6. One of the things he says that he will do if he becomes mayor is that he will have the NYPD retain command and control of school safety officers. He says that, “Schools can be used to address the issue of police-community relations. Students and police should get to know each other in non-adversarial ways through the school system.” I agree with him on this issue because many students do not like the NYPD. I think that if they would get to know the officers, they would not feel afraid or threatened by them....   [tags: essays research papers] 359 words

Transformation of Global Technology - The increase in the flow of information between nations has proven to be a critical part of the developing international community. Deficiencies in this field have lead to the ill-preparation by the United States during the Bombing of Pearl Harbor and the attacks on the World Trade Center in September 2001. In both cases, critical data was received from surveillance instruments but was not acted upon expediently enough to avoid disaster. With the transition from a state-based threat to non-state terrorist organizations, the need for more thorough scrutiny then before has become paramount to the national security of the United States....   [tags: essays research papers] 333 words

The KKK - I have learned that the Ku Klux Klan was in response to the Southern bitterness towards blacks having won freedom from slavery in the aftermath of the civil war. Congress had passed the Reconstruction Acts which divided the South into 5 military districts, each under a general. New elections were to be held in each state with freed, black, male slaves being allowed to vote; this infuriated Southerners.

So they devise a strategy based on selective exposure to get one’s attention and stop the channel surfing. What the public perceives can sometimes be based on how much of the story they have heard.

The Spark of World War I - The conflicting national interests in western and eastern Europe drove the major countries to form protective coalitions, even with nations that had once been bitter enemies. Smaller countries were forced to choose sides, and by 1914, Europe was separated into two heavily armed camps. Any spark would have been enough to ignite the war everyone expected. That spark was touched off in Sarajevo, the capital city of Bosnia and Herzegovina.

Conflict Between Different Social Groups in Society and Stereotyping - Conflict Between Different Social Groups in Society and Stereotyping It is clear that this suggestion is a very valid one, from what we can see going on around us. People are branded as something and from then on that is the way in which everyone thinks of them. People are not given the opportunity to express themselves and show what they are like as individuals rather than as a group i.e. gender or race. Stereotypes are easily recognised and this means that if a certain group have been said to be something then everyone knows it and is able to recognise them, and in the world which we live in, they will most likely ridicule that group, in order to make themselves feel better as a group....   [tags: Papers] 345 words

Walk into any mall on Nov. 1 and you'll find holly-adorned halls already decked. The first Christmas catalogs come so early, you can swat mosquitoes with them. The broad definition of the holidays as a "season of giving" is a sentiment whereby spiritual, secular, and commercial interests collide: To give, you've got to spend.

Three factors contributed to this war: (1) territorial dispute, (2) religious disputes between Islamic moderates and fundamentalists, and more importantly, (3) a personality conflict (also known as ego-mania) between Saddam Hussein, Iraq’s president, and Ayatollah Khomein, the leader of Iran....   [tags: Papers] 399 words
