Crime

The play "The Crucible" is about the Salem witch trials and how a group of girls decide to conjure the devil and them getting caught. One girl lies to save herself which leads to many people getting hanged for not confessing to practicing witch craft. The quote that led me to picking this topic was, "2014, Eric Garner was allegedly selling cigarettes illegally.Police show up and put Garner in a chokehold (which is prohibited in the New York police department) Garner tells the officers he cannot breathe. He later dies of a heart attack." The issue of police brutality is represented in the play because it targets certain people and uses violence against them without an explanation. The reason why I chose this topic is because I think the issue needs to be better addressed and dealt with....

I describe myself as an average girl in her 20s. Mid height, mid sized, mid smile. Asian looking asian girl. Let me first add some background to the story.. I myself work in a creative field, and often times it’s not the best paid industry. I am a starting designer and my salary is just enough to eat everyday. Not having enough money was a big stress in Tokio, one of the most expensive cities in the world, I decided to take up the second job just on the weekends. A friend of mine happened to know this person who was looking for a part time server at his bar. She introduced me to the bar manager and within 3 days from my decision, I got the second job. The bar is in Shibuya, the most or second most popular neighborhood among the locals, also among foreign travelers. My...

After seeing so many unexpected decisions taken by current Indian Government, which gave good results or will be beneficial for future of India. Today I want to discuss a point from my side, which is continuously making me restless. Although so many good policies and schemes came into action to give a better life to the citizens of India. But it will make more sense when the lives will be safe. According to me, Man Power is the Strength of our nation, Women are the Pride of our nation, and Kids are the Future of our nation. I really hope we could use our “Strength in such good way so that the Future of our nation will be safe and our Pride will remain secure.” Topic I wanted to discuss about is Child Trafficking. Although so many NGOs are working on it and there are so...

No, I don’t want to have sex with you. You don’t like that answer? That’s okay. Hold me down by my hair. Cover my mouth. Keep me in place. Don’t worry, I’m sure I’ll stop crying. I won’t fight back. Silly me, I thought the repeated “no” and “stop” would count. It doesn’t matter to you? That’s fine, I’ll freeze and take it. I wouldn’t want to make a fuss and wake my friend. I’ll wait for you to finish. Don’t mind me, I’m just running to the bathroom because I need to vomit from the terror, disgust, and confusion building up. I’ll be out in a minute, I promise. I’m sorry, I shouldn’t be so upset with you. You’re right, I could have gotten up. You’re right, I could’ve yelled for help if I didn’t like it. You’re right, I guess I was flirting too much and since I thought you were cute,...

First I would like to state some things that you are saying about my fiance, myself and our SON, is completely incorrect. I have never threatened you. I would love proof of said threats. And the fact you are bringing children into this and you're self pitty is rather childish. The harrassment for over 2 years is ridiculous. I've already called the police on you before and obviously you're just not smart enough to learn to leave well enough alone. I've never threatened to hurt you or you're child I HAVE stated that if "she" being you, if you would approach my in public starting things, of course I would make sure it comes to a complete stop. Now you are harrassing a unborn child and you're ex? and well the previous and on going harrassment with me for over 2 years. And you messaging my...

Dear Winchester Churches Nightshelter and Trinity Centre, Just to remind you of a complaint already made, that you have been reluctant to answer. The wrongdoing and complaint remain your responsibility. Do you remember when I came to you homeless in 2010? I was utterly destroyed, traumatized and destitute. I was made that way by Jane Fisher and Lou and Michael Scott-Joynt, who had me destroyed to cover up for the Church of England's wrongdoing relating to two serial abusers who were allowed to access, groom and abuse me, in the second case the abuser was supposed to be under a 'chaperoning policy' as he was a serial abuser, but he was a churchwarden and the vicar and his wife aided and facilitated the churchwarden's abuse of me. When I came to you, you were expressly told...

Dear Policemen and policewomen of Ohio, I am a Black male who believes that my life can be taken away because of my skin color. I have been Black for 15 years now and so far nothing has happen to me. In recent news around Ohio there was an arrest of a black male and the police brutally beat him for “resisting” the arrest. Then once they got outside one cop told the Black man that he would “kill him” and in hear that the chief fired him. But what about the officers that beat the Black man what’s going to happen to them? It hurt to see the men and women whose supposed to protect us hurt us because every time they yell get on the ground and stop resisting someone gets beats because they weren't putting there hands behind his or her back. I think when I hear news like that, what if...
