Jsp Profiling - 1,307 words
NEW JERSEY STATE POLICE RACIAL PROFILING Racial profiling is a law enforcement strategy that encourages police officers to stop and question African Americans simply because of their race. Although not raised as a major issue in the courtroom during the trial of the four police officers who shot Amadou Diallo (who were acquitted in February), racial profiling is often employed by police, officially and unofficially, and was likely a factor in the police shooting of Diallo. Racial profiling took off during the highly publicized explosion of crack cocaine in inner-city neighborhoods in the 1980s, which bolstered the perception of drugs as a black problem -- even though statistics showed most c ...

Who Was Heinrich Himmler - 841 words
Heinrich Himmler was Reichsfhrer-SS (Reich SS Leader) and Chief of the German police. In this capacity, he was responsible for the implementation of the Final Solution - the extermination of the Jews - as ordered by the Fhrer, Adolf Hitler. He was born in Munich on October 7, 1900.

... h emotion or introspection but require a level of conscious cognition to understand. 3/28/98 Dave Workman Bravo for John Lott's revealing research on the impact that concealed carry laws are having on crime. That such laws have been passed in 31 states, coinciding with passage of "Three Strikes" and "Hard Time for Armed Crime" legislation, is the real reason we are seeing a decline in reported violent crime. Those who have advocated restrictive gun control over the years, and other intrusions on the rights of individual citizens, are now being shown as the liars they've always been. In the wake of the Arkansas tragedy, I remain more firmly convinced than ever that gun control advocates ...

Why The Martin Luther King Jr Holiday Should Be Repealed - 5,133 words
... the FBI is out to get them. In some cases, where the people are criminals, they may be right. (For instance, Louis Farrakhan, who has threatened to lop off the heads of any undercover FBI agents in his organization in his speech Warning to the Government, is probably not rated too highly among FBI members.) There have been numerous attempts, recently, to defame the late J. Edgar Hoover-much of which borders on sheer insanity, the rest of which is an outright, licentious rumor-by leftist hatemongers. Why would they do that? It is quite simple: By attacking Hoover with their unproven, insipid jeremiads in an attempt to discredit him, they hope that all of his findings will be discredited ...

In the September issue of The Forerunner (Vol. X, No. VI ), we examined the relationship between pornography and violent crime in an article entitled "Mass Murder and Pornography - Are They Related?" Since the publication of the September issue, we have received a number of responses challenging the claim that pornography and violent crime are related. These responses implored us to use real, honest and acceptable facts in defending this position. As a follow up to the many questions generated by this article, we have decided to give a more complete overview of the research that has been done in this area. Defenders of pornography argue that it is not harmful, and thus should not be regulate ...

The Taxes We Pay - 821 words
In the United States, the history of taxes goes far back in time. During the Civil War, there was a tax on income for a short period of time. In the 1890s, the tax was ruled unconstitutional by the Supreme Court. In 1913, the 16th Amendment was passed which gave the United States the power to tax personal income. Congress imposed taxes to help raise money to fight wars. Before, the government relied on excise taxes on liquor and tobacco for its revenue. These taxes benefited American manufacturers by keeping prices high for foreign-made goods. During the Great Depression in the 1930s, the government also many income and social security programs. The federal income tax began as a tax on only ...

Racial Profiling - 768 words
We must ensure that stereotypes and prejudice, whether consciously or unconsciously, do not creep into the work we do - Attorney General Janet Reno What is race? In the colonial era, Western ideologies helped to build a dominant European society. The rise of the West had a dramatic effect on the rest of the world. A new Capitalist economy was adopted. It operated on the basis of oppression. Prior to this time, races did not exist. Yet, as the white man came into power, his superiority was enforced by a set of standards, a hierarchy of the races to which white Eurocentrism was placed above all and closest to God. Consequentially, blacks were valued below all others. It has taken years of stru ...

BOSTON A driver chatting into a cell phone as the car whizzes down the road is becoming a more common sight in this age of telecommunications. State legislators and federal officials agree that the use of cellular telephones while driving poses a distraction which may lead to car accidents. But they acknowledge that little is being done to address the issue. "Anything that takes your eyes off the road is a hazard," state Rep. Reed Hillman, R-Sturbridge, said. But Hillman, former head of the Massachusetts State Police, points out that there doesn't seem to be an appetite on Beacon Hill for any bill that would ban cell phone use by drivers. Currently, there is no legislation pending before th ...

Ending Racial Profiling - 1,446 words
The federal government should end racial profiling by requiring policemen and other law enforcement officers to keep detailed records of each individual they stop to question or search. These records should include the persons race; the reason stopped; how long the car was detained; and whether a ticket was issued, the car searched, or any illegal goods or weapons were found when the traffic stop was made. Racial profiling is the police practice of stopping and searching African-American and Hispanic drivers at rates far disproportionate to their numbers on the road. I personally, have repeatedly been an innocent victim of racial profiling in the city in which I reside and while visiting oth ...

Biography Of Adolf Hitler - 1,890 words
Adolf Hitler, aka 'Der Fhrer' ('The Leader'). Was born in Germany. He was directly responsible for the deaths of 66 million world wide, during the second World War. Following the First World War, the Treaty of Versailles penalizes the defeated Germany, annexing land, imposing large war reparations, limiting the size of the army and blaming Germany and Austria-Hungary for starting the conflict.

His Letter from Birmingham City Jail, which argued that individuals had the moral right and responsibility to disobey unjust laws, was widely read at the time and added to Kings standing as a moral leader.
