Many people believed that race discrimination was highly visible when comes to the law and order. Erik Wemple agrees that racism is “still alive and well throughout our nation.” He believes that black people receive inequality treatment on the issues of crime. The left wing supporters argued that police officers often used excessive force against black people who were suspected of crimes and often end up killing them. The matter of Travon Martin and George Zimmerman made black people insist that police’s racial profiling in apprehending a suspect led to the death of many blacks. It seems that the police officers who usually stop and search blacks disproportionately violate the Fourth Amendment ban on unreasonable search and seizure (“Search and Seizure Law”).
Police officers have been known to stop minorities over caucasians at traffic stops all over the United States. Instead of choosing random people at traffic stops, officials have been using race to pick who to stop, therefore they’... ... middle of paper ... ...be put under consideration for job termination. This policy will create a safe environment for all races, and eliminate all officers who chose not to follow the guidelines. In order to eliminate racial discrimination in the criminal justice system, officials must enforce strict policies and guidelines stating all races should be treated equally. To African Americans and other minorities racial equality in the criminal justice system is a fantasy.
Police brutality now in the year 2015 is focused more on blacks first hispanics second and other races third. This crime has to stop with police. Although, the police are intimidated by young black males there is no reason for anyone to be brutally beaten then the police the freedom to get away with this. Even though, police brutality is a big problem it is only proved the police wrong when it is clear they are trained to serve and protect with a lot of different protocols in the process of the whole situation. The police would only react to a perp violently and with force if they felt threatened and when this happens local news and internet makes it look as if police are the bad guys which in some situations they are, but others they aren 't they are just doing their job as officers to serve and protect.
How, besides protesting, can we truly make sure that there will be no more black people being killed, beaten or tortured by police officers? And how can we promote justice and equality in the law enforcement more often? Step 1. Body cameras on every officer will show a huge decrease in police brutality. Body cameras are not going to make everything stop but it will definitely help instill some fear in those who believe they are invisible and can do whatever they want.
Police Brutality It seems today that you can’t even go to the store, or out in public without being watched on by the police. It’s sad, but in order to not be harassed like that, you’d have to be light skinned. Latinos, Asians, Blacks and Native Americans are not the only ones, but they’re the majority that’re victims of police brutality in the United States. “Many in law enforcement argue that it makes sense to use race or ethnicity in criminal profiles because there is a strong statistical association between membership in minority groups and involvement in crime” (Harris). Instead of being equipped with their wits and abilities to calm down a situation, police officers are well protected with high-militarized weapons.
Hell yea! If a black cop shot an unarmed white person, the nation would be overturned with rage. The reason being: that isn 't the social norm. We 're used to the white police killing black Americans. The media does a great job at showing us what they want us to see!” Hall-Walker also believes that police officers need better
What most people would think is that only black men and women are killed by police officers. Yet this year there has actually been more white individuals killed by police officers than any other race. This is only a problem, because when you read about police killings it is almost all about how police target people of color. With this idea it makes it so that people of color feel more like a victim in the country and are then scared of police officers, who are supposed to be there to help. The statistic of white people being killed by police officers is not covered by the media, because it is not as intriguing or as controversial as the other stories.
The excessive force used by the police specifically towards African Americans is continuous; with the justice system doing close to nothing to change that. This is one of the reasons they continue to kill and harass African Americans. According to Propublica, young black males are about twenty times more likely to be shot and killed by the police than their white peers are. Murderers are walking free, and innocent lives are being taken. Over the past couple of years, thousands of people have been killed on the hands of the police, both black and white.
Instead the outcome of this is usually the opposite at the same time it is political ways to make the residence of the white communities feel secure and safe. If the police truly want to reduce crime, why don’t they stop treating black people as criminals and start treating them as victims. More than 80 percent of stop and frisk due to racial profiling were found
What was so suspicious about Trayvon? Was it his skin color? Since then, Black Lives Matter has been growing in supporters especially for all the police brutality that has been happening in 2016. Black Lives Matter as an organization need more support because not enough people realize that there is a problem with racial discrimination towards African American people in today’s society. African American people are getting killed by cops too often for people not to suspect anything.
