Three Strikes Youre Out Law
Three Strikes You're Out Law cv5199@hotmail.com We have all heard of the newest anti-crime law, the Three strikes and you?re out law. It wasn?t easy getting this law from the bill stage in Sacramento to the law stage, because it is not a criminal friendly law. Meaning that this law?s purpose is to bring pain, suffering, and intimidation to criminals. Our state government was basically ran by the Assembly Speaker Willie Brown, now mayor of San Francisco. Brown had the power to choose who sat on

Changes to the Bill of Rights Anonymous How many rights do you have? You should check, because it might not be as many today as it was a few years ago, or even a few months ago. Some people I talk to are not concerned that police will execute a search warrant without knocking or that they set up roadblocks and stop and interrogate innocent citizens. They do not regard these as great infringements on their rights. But when you put current events together, there is information that may be surprisi

Desperation by Stephen King debe1 Desperation, a recent Stephen King novel, is not just a book, but an experience that leaves the reader frightened, paranoid, and questioning his moral beliefs. Picture, if you will, a lone, crazed Nevada policeman who pulls over vehicles on a lonely desert highway and forcefully takes away their occupants. Whichever of them he doesn?t kill immediately, he locks up in the jail of the small desolate town of Desperation. Among those captured are the vacationing Car

The Inequality Of American Justice
The Inequality of American Justice N. LeVan David Cole wrote, our criminal justice system affirmatively depends on inequality (5). Cole has substantial grounds for making this statement. Race and class have long been issues in the criminal justice system, but does the system affirmatively depend on inequality? Does the criminal justice system depend on the disparities of the people that it serves? American justice is supposed to be blind. Despite this there have been many disparities in the

Drugs And Alcoholism: Why Are Teenagers Involved?
Drugs and Alcoholism: Why are Teenagers Involved? Newton Adolescence is much like a midpoint in ones life; when a person is neither a kid nor an adult. At this period, teens have passed the age when they were called kids but are not yet qualified to be adults. Teenagers want to think like adults, behave like adults and also start to view themselves as independent beings in decision making. All this hormonal changes also come with the negativity of maturity such as drugs and alcohol. The statisti

The Definition Of Definitions
The Definition of Definitions The sentence ?all cats are black? is evidently untrue even if only one cat in the whole universe were to be white. Thus, the property ?being black? cannot form a part of the definition of a cat. The lesson to be learnt is that definitions must be universal. They must apply to all the members of a defined set (the set of ?all cats? in our example). Let us try to define a chair. In doing so we are trying to capture the essence of being a chair, its ?chairness?. It is

This is a fundamental question that, in a way, I will attempt to answer in this paper, but I will never do it. Raving is a highly subjective experience. One person's best rave is another person's worst. Any attempt to analyze rave culture must recognize the highly personal factor of the experience. It is because of this fact that I start off my attempt to analyze rave culture with a series of quotes on

The lyrical component of rap music is thought to have been greatly influenced by Cab Calloway with his repetitive chants and scats, along with his call-and-response technique with the audience. Rap evolved and gained in popularity in the 1960's when a few revolutionary DJ's, including Kool DJ Herc, DJ Lovebug Starski, and DJ Hollywood, b

marijuana legalization
In my opinion marijuana should be legalized for medicinal purposes only. Marijuana has been proven to far outweigh the pain relieving benefits of other narcotics such as Oxicodone, Percocet, and Morphine. Evidence supports marijuana being used for medicinal use as far back as 2,737 BC. Marijuana is also an immediate pain relief. People who are in excruciating pain do not enjoy waiting an hour or more for their pain to be relieved by narcotic pain relievers. Medical marijuana also has short term

On Election Day, voters in Massachusetts took what they think will be a step forward for their state: They decriminalized possession of small amounts of marijuana. Before you brush that off with, Well, that's Massachusetts for you, consider that this is a state with not only a liberal bent but a strong Puritan streak. This is a place where you can't buy wine in a grocery store or pick up beer in a 7-Eleven. By two to one, voters decided that possessing less than an ounce of marijuana will net

When young adults finish high school the only thing that comes to their mind is freedom, the freedom of no rules and bossy parents. They imagine vivid pictures of what college might be like for them and for many young adults that freedom and college lifestyle means insane wild parties, no boundaries, and iniquities. These students believe that, much like high school, classes will be taken during the day and filled with all their friends. They imagine a lifestyle with no other worries besides an

Decriminalization of Marijuana
Decriminalization of Marijuana There are many arguments and points of view on whether marijuana should be legalized or remain illegal. The first question we have to ask ourselves is ?Do individuals deserve the right to decide whether or not they should use marijuana?? Is it right for the government to dictate what individuals do in the privacy of their own homes as long as it does not pose a threat to them or harm others? Marijuana, when used in moderation, is not anymore harmful than alcohol or

Why is Marijuana an illegal substance today? With all the research on the benefits of Cannabis as a medicinal drug, why is the government allowing the sale of tobacco - known for its addictive tendencies - and calling Marijuana a ?gate-way? drug?

To explain why I support the idea of legalizing Marijuana and why I do not agree with it being made illegal in the first place, I first need to provide some background information on
