Also, what I don’t understand is how not one police officer took a stand against the police chief, and how this type of policing was never reported and deemed as acceptable behavior. The reason I also chose to include the L.A. riots is because it displays a side of the story many people simply do not discuss. The impression that I received is the rioting is deemed as justifiable. Both incidents are classic examples of how a lack of proper ethics and leadership can lead to such tragic incidents. What is even sadder is in between all this innocent people were affected, such as Rodney King, the businesses, and 53 deaths.
He was free to play again, but no team signed him because it was going to come with a ton of backlash and no team wanted to deal with that because it would have been a distraction to the team. Also, many people lost respect for Rice for putting his hands on a women. No one would look at him the same anymore. He has yet to sign with any team since the incident took
However, the townspeople and Scratchy are disappointed to find him married, unarmed, and unwilling to fight. Before Jack arrived the townspeople were hoping for his arrival to cool off the situation. As one bartender said, "'I wish Jack Potter was back from San Anton', he shot Wilson up once--in the leg--and he would sail in and pull out the kinks in this thing'" (215). This quote and Jack's shamefulness are what leads people into discussions of this story. Jack Potter's marriage was kept secret from any of his friends and family, so his new wife was something unknown to anyone.
Unfortunately, my mother disagrees; she always disagrees. She makes a point that knowing about my father’s life would not benefit me as a teenager, but I never said it would. I simply believe that it is my right to know the one who’s responsible for my flaws. I have hypothesized that my father is to blame for my inconformity to rules and terrible memory. I mean, he left us when I was eight and I can only remember his name; the name of whom has been prohibited in this household.
The same night about 15 minutes later on 1400 block of Oak Street NW, a 22 year old man was shot in the face and was partially blinded. His shooting was dismissed because of objectivity. On February 26, 1993, three days following the first shooting a man burst in a barbershop and murdered a customer with his shotgun. This was James Swann’s first slaying. Once again, police brushed the case off assuming it was drug related.
Is anything really being done? In April 2001, Timothy Thomas, age 19, was shot and killed by Cincinnati Police Officer, Stephen Roach. Thomas ran from the officer while Roach was trying to arrest him for violations that were brought against him in the past. Timothy Thomas was wanted for 14 various minor misdemeanors for driving without a driver’s license and two of those misdemeanors were for not wearing a seat belt. However, Roach had said that his life was in danger that dark April night, when Thomas ran to the threatening alley, so Officer Roach’s instincts told him to shoot the gun.
Times are tough as an American these days. Whether you’re a police officer, a government official, or just a citizen, you are feeling the effects of the Ferguson protests and they’re changing how you live your life. Earlier this year, police officer Darren Wilson shot and killed an unarmed black man named Michael Brown for reasons currently being disputed. According to the official report from the Wilson, Brown and his friend were walking in the middle of the street when the officer asked them to move onto the side walk. According to Wilson, Brown responded aggressively, using profanity and telling the officer to leave him alone.
They want people to be isolated from one another so that the concept of “we” is completely eliminated. If everyone keeps to themselves, they cannot come together as one and possibly overthrow Big Brother, which is something that the Inner Party is afraid of. To prevent this possibility, everyone has been more or less brainwashed by the Inner Party. They all follow the ominous Big Brother who rules over everything, even though they never actually see him. David Goodman even says in “The Future Is Here” that Big Brother is “seen only on television…he never appears in public,” yet the Party members still blindly follow him.
Justice was not served in the controversial nature of the Bernhard Goetz subway shooting trial. After shooting four black teenagers, Bernhard Goetz turned himself into the police in Concord, New Hampshire. He was denominated, “The Subway Vigilante”. This case was brought to court approximately two years later, where Bernhard Goetz would ultimately be voted guilty of one count of illegal firearms possession, and served just six months in jail. Following the trials, questions are still being asked if justice has been served.
Well, it turns out that Officer Wilson did not even know that Michael and his friend were suspects in the robbery when he stopped and shot him. Reports show that a reason why Officer Wilson had shot Michael was of racial profiling. This had a disastrous impact on the Missouri society as the fellow Afro Americans unhappy with the law enforcement, started rioting and looting the next few days after Michael's shooting. This incident clearly shows how racial profiling can affect society negatively and hinder its
