1. The new classical vocal form was created at the end of the 19th century that included the orchestra is etude (french word for study). Etude was written in the early 20th century and oversaw numerous collections of etudes. Major composers such as Claude Debussy and Franz Liszt achieve this form in the concert repertoires that features didactic pieces from earlies times like vocal solfeggi and keyboard.
This case involved seventeen year old Eric Clark who shot and killed Officer Jeffrey Moritz who responded to a complaint early in the morning about a loud noise in the neighborhood, the noise was reported that it came from a certain pickup truck. When Officer Moritz ran upon the truck that was reported as making loud noise, he turn on his siren and emergency flashers for the truck to stop. When Officer Moritz walked up to the car he asked the driver which was Eric Clark to remain in the car, but as it seems Clark did not adhere to what Officer Moritz request of him, instead Clark shot Officer Moritz to death and flee the scene on foot, but backup was already requested by Officer Moritz. Although Clark fled the scene he was found and arrested later that day and his hands still had the residue of gun-powder on them. The gun that was used to kill Officer Moritz was found in a hat not too far from where they picked Clark up from (2009, pg. 113).
The families of the “victims” and the deceased compile a compelling story which incurs the “out of hand” behavior and the “excessive force” tendencies of the Albuquerque police department, as described by Heinz (C2). Many of these claims in my opinion are rash and are out of pure emotional anger because of the immediate loss of a loved one; however, one case that caught my attention can bring the matter into dispute. In May of 2011, a 22 year old man was shot because he was believe...
Some police officers have the dangerous mindset that they are above the law and can get away with anything they do just because of their role and rank in society. In 2015, there were 965 fatal shootings by police. One of those shootings was of 59 year-old David Kassick. Kassick was tased three times and then shot twice in the back resulting in his death. Kassick cooperated with the officer and did everything he was asked to do yet still the outcome was death. The officer Lisa Mearkle was charged with the following: third-degree murder, voluntary manslaughter, and involuntary manslaughter. When Mearkle appeared in court for the charges held against her, the jury acquitted her of all three charges. When police officers are let off the hook for murder, like Mearkle was, it sets an example for other police officers that it is okay to do the same. It is very dangerous for police officers to think this way because it is causing many to abuse their power.
Murder is always a tragic crime, but even more so, when it has been committed by a police officer, who made an oath to uphold the law and protect the community. This was exactly the case during the early hours of the morning on June 5th 2010, when off-duty Baltimore police officer, Gahiji Tshamba shot an unarmed, Tyrone Brown, a former marine, repeatedly over an altercation outside of a local bar. The incident occurred outside of a bar in Mount Vernon, where the victim, Brown, touched Tshamba’s female companion inappropriately. The situation quickly escalated, but Brown tried to apologize and he had his hands up, when Tshamba fired thirteen shots, hitting Brown twelve times. Both parties involved had been drinking alcohol, and Tshamba had
In USA Today, “it mentions how a Balch Springs law enforcement officer named Officer Roy Oliver was fired for violating the Balch Springs Police department’s policy. USA Today also mentions how, Dallas law enforcement officers were responding to a report of a party that had intoxicated teens when the local officers heard shots being fired. USA Today said that Officer Jonathan Haber reported that the car was backing up towards them and that is when the police officer Roy Oliver shot a 15 year old boy named Jordan Edwards who was a passenger in the car in the head with a rifle killing him. However, USA Today mentions how Haber quickly changed his story after viewing the dash cam video of the scene showing the car backing up, but then moving forward and driving away from the scene when the victim, Jordan Edwards was shot. In other words, as the car was driving away this is when Officer Roy Oliver fired his gun towards the vehicle, killing the victim Jordan Edwards. USA Today then mentions how the chief of police stated that what was shown in the dash cam of the scene was a violation of the policies and values of the Balch Springs Police Department. Lastly,
On 01/10/2016, officer T.Cramblett ,CPD #1191, was working special duty at the Tequila Cowboy bar and grill, located at 1069 Polaris Parkway. At approximately 2:10 A.M. officer Cramblett was standing by the front door of the Luigi's Pizza parlor, the restaurant side of the establishment, when he observed one of the employees involved in a struggle with a male black who appeared to be intoxicated. Officer Cramblett observed the male to be holding a glass bottle in his right hand as he struggled with the employee who was attempting to remove him from the restaurant. Officer Cramblett feared that if he didn't act quickly the situation would escalate and somebody could get hurt. Officer Cramblett approached the male grabbing his right wrist
Violence against law enforcement has become an issue in the immediate history of the nation, and is largely be related to the alleged violence by police officers against citizens of the United States, particularly African American men. Frequent media emphasis on what they consider to be racial attacks by police officers and fulling the fire to seek retaliation on law enforcement. To some extent, this may just be a tactic of publicity; but violence against police officers may also be a legitimate concern in the context of the present political environment. The war on police has increased since mid-2013, even though there has always been animosity between officers and civilians. For example, the data presented by the Officer Down Memorial Page from January 2016 to July 12, 2016 there has been over 60 total law enforcement fatalities. There have also been 23 K-9 deaths as of July 12, 2016 which has an adverse effect on the handlers as well as the department seeing as the K-9 is considered a co-worker/friend. Many are thought to believe that if the officers themselves aren't being targeted they will attack the K-9 officers in the police officers place to hurt them in any way they
The stats show that 70% of police officers showed no sign of sight alignment when in a shooting and 10% can’t remember if they did or not. These stats show how stressful it is to be in that kind of situation. Some police officers don’t even fear in the situation until it is already done. Police officers have to make these split second decisions and the cause of these decisions have caused many deaths due to the assumption that a person had a gun or that they saw a gun and there was no gun found. My opinion on this is that police officers are going to make the wrong decision but we don’t have to look down at every police officer because of one’s wrong
Philando Castle, a school canteen supervisor, his girlfriend and her daughter driving through Minnesota, USA on the 6th of July 2016. The family were stopped by police due to a broken taillight on their car, however a routine search of the car seemed necessary to the officer, in which he found a firearm. The man tried to explain to the officer that he had a firearm license in his wallet along with his ID, and then… 4 gunshots were heard. At this point Philando’s girlfriend began live-streaming on Facebook, the horrific events that had just unfolded. In the video, you can hear the officer panicking after he shoots the man’s arm off and demand that the woman and child do not move. The 4-year-old girl was not fully aware of what had happened and can be heard saying to her mum “Mommy it’s okay” as her mother is sobbing in the front seat. The reason he was shot? Philando Castle was black. No other apparent reason.
