Crime

To whom it may concern: This past week has been so disheartening and mind blowing. To live in this daily reality is too surreal. Growing up I would have never imagined I would witness so many catastrophic events and right now we are in yet another phase of turmoil. I'm not writing this letter to complain but to be a voice of a possible solution to begin the healing process of the reality's of all police brutalities. There are a lot of individuals speaking out in rage, anger, sadness, hopelessness and are in turn hit with political jargon that has yet to propose a possible solution leaving people to feel like their words are hitting a brick wall and that there is no one to give them hope that some type of justice will come out of all of this. Marching's, rallies, online post,...

Within the past month I've seen more violence then I would hope to see in a lifetime. Growing up I was taught to be kind to everyone no matter who they were. I never understood why one human would hate another human just because of what they looked like, or their religion, or their sexual orientation....To be honest I still do not understand. The amount of senseless murders I have seen in the past month has not only scared me but has made me angry. Imagine being in that persons shoes who is looking down a barrel of a gun just because he got pulled over for a burnt out tail light. Or all of the men and women who thought going out to a bar would be fun that night. I am a straight white girl, I am not a part of the handful of groups being targeted lately. No I do not understand...

When I was a little girl, my dad used to go away randomly. He’d disappear in the middle of the night, or a family member would show up to pick me up from school. My mom would be awake, even if it was the middle of the night, and she always seemed upset about something. She’d tell me “daddy’s at work, he’ll be home soon”, but she didn’t seem any less worried. As a little kid, I didn’t get it. I just knew my mom was upset, and my dad wasn’t home, and I didn’t like it. In High-school, my dad was super athletic. He didn’t get great grades - although later when he went to college in his 40’s he graduated top of his class. His parents never emphasized college, and he was more interested in sports. He played anything: football, soccer, basketball, if it included a ball it worked, and he was...

Having watched Philando Castile's bereaved partner's 13 minute message, I must tell you it was heartbreaking to watch. How have organisations become so corrupt that they will go as far as to tamper with evidence, and try to cover up their crimes. The police are supposed to "protect and serve", but tragic events like these only prove they do no such thing. As a young black woman, I feel threatened and sad for the future generation of black people in particular. And then there will always be the statements..."it is with deep regret", etc etc etc. To be honest, I'm done. Action needs to be taken, because as the saying goes, actions speak louder than words. And all these words are doing nothing but cause more pain and tension between different groups. To the police, change your actions...

Dear McKinney, TX police, Thank you for beating the hell out of me for being suicidle at one point in my life, it really seems like the best option for someone that needs help. I mean that's what officer Wilkerson said as he approached me the night of February 21st 2016. He said "I hear you need some help." I told him no I am fine, which I was, otherwise I wouldn't have been back at my house. I guess he didn't like that answer, so he grabbed me. Well as a natural reaction since I didn't do anything wrong I tried to pull his hand off mine. I don't remember much after that but my brother told me you hit me in the face 2 times. I'm guessing that's the part where I stopped remembering everything. The next thing I do remember is being tasered in my driveway pulling it out and being...

I was locked out. I had no place to go. Hostels were full. “Friends” turned me away. You offered me a place to stay. You said you’d sleep on the couch. I awoke to the feel of your hands. The feel of your hands all over me. I froze. Didn’t know what to do. Was it me? Did I do something wrong? Did I drink too much? Did I wear too little? Did I make you believe I wanted this? No. It was not my fault. It was yours. Yes means yes and no means no. A vulnerable girl is not yours for the taking.

I am angry. I am upset. My heart is with the victim of the Stanford rape, as well as all other survivors of sexual assault. I am in shock that there seems to be so little anger in the courtroom towards rapist Brock Turner. I am appalled that someone who committed so heinous a crime has only been sentenced to six months. My stomach is sick as I read the victim’s letter to her attacker, as she describes through her own eyes the pain and suffering she has gone through. Yet, none of this seems to phase Turner as he shows no regret for what he has done. Instead he places the blame on something else. Alcohol. Most know what it is to be drunk, to be a little more giggly or to throw your cares away, but being drunk does not turn someone into a rapist. The intent was already there. Alcohol does...

In the war against campus sexual assault, why are we not talking about drinking? When dealing with intoxication and sex, there are the built-in complications of incomplete memories and differing interpretations of intent and consent. More than 97,000 students between the ages of 18 and 24 are victims of alcohol related sexual assault or date rape. Young women are getting a distorted message that their right to match men drink for drink is a feminist issue. The real "feminist" message should be that when you lose the ability to be responsible for yourself, you drastically increase attracting the wrong kind of attention. So, should the complainants word be enough to convict, even if her recollection of what happened is blurry or non-existent due to intoxication? Alcohol smudges the lens...

It’s time to start looking at all of these mass shootings from a big picture perspective. It’s not just about terrorism, or gun control, or hate crimes. It’s about how American society is, slowly but surely, dehumanizing people. Every time a tragic mass murder happens, everyone grieves together for about two hours, and then everyone turns on each other as people try to place blame: “ISIL is prevalent here. Let’s ban all the Muslims.” “More crazy white men have killed than Muslims. You are racist.” “This was a hate crime.” “It couldn’t have been a hate crime because the shooter identified with the victimized community. This was a matter of mental illness.” “We should have tighter gun restriction laws.” “How dare they threaten my right to the 2nd Amendment.” “The government...
