SAPI plates and rucksacks and knee pads and rifles and more gear that kept these warriors in step pervaded the vehicle. As Christmas neared in this far off land away from home in America, these men traversed the unyielding elements. The sixty degree weather remained welcoming, though. For all of the scorching summers with heat that would make Lucifer blush, the infantrymen of this Marine Division all focused on the main objective: ensure that cement trucks full of contractors reached a school zone.
Crime has been around for thousands of years- acts viewed as vile, evil and sometimes unexplainable by humans, have plagued our species since the pre-historic civilizations. The first attempt at creating a code of laws started in Ancient Mesopotamia with Hammurabi’s Code. Although humanity has come a long way from following Hammurabi’s idea of “An eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth,” we still struggle with finding fitting punishments for crimes, as opinions on the matter are widely subjective. However, over the recent years, with the development of criminology, the focus has shifted from finding a fitting punishment for a crime, to eradicate crime by starting with its root causes. Criminology is the field of Criminal Law dealing with attempting to figure out why crime happens. The practitioners and experts of this field have narrowed it down to nine main causes, though they widely debate what the main one is. The purpose of this research paper will be to go into depth about why poor parenting and broken homes are the root cause of crime- this being due to the fact that they have a negative mental impact on the child’s development, can easily lower the child’s altruism levels, and can ultimately lead into other causes viewed by researchers as root causes of crime.
In the Virtual Museum, I chose two objects from chapter 29, Malcolm X and Thurgood Marshall. I select these objects because there were active in the same decade and help to give blacks civil rights. They were both significant figures of the civil rights movement in the 1960s and had different views of blacks in the US. Marshal, and Malcolm X were the most influential figures in the public rights movement from 1960 to 1965. Malcolm X's view was to separate blacks from the population to have better rights, and Marshall used the law system to help blacks achieve to have the same reason as whites. They had different views, but they worked towards freedom for blacks. Malcolm X and Marshall are essential for history in the civil rights movement because of the use of motivation and action that made sense in a certain period in US history.
The problem with gun control has been discussed for decades. People have given arguments about gun control in the US. Some cases have been about the 2nd amendment, while others argued that owning a gun is essential for self-defense. Furthermore, the problem with gun control in the US is the Saws are not in every street, and the youth involved with gun violence.
