    Hey! Over Here! Look at this!

    No I understood and for the most part did not feel attacked by any of the responses as I recognised it was a discussion. I do appreciate the advice you have given me as it's something I have to strongly consider and be aware of if I am trying to produce work to have a positive impact. Thank you...

    Hey! Over Here! Look at this!

    Thank you as this is very valuable insight and not an attack on my views. My research does not aim to rely on opinions as i recognise this can also be misguided or ill-informed, however, i feel it is important to include a variety of views in order to expand beyond literature I also reference...

    Hey! Over Here! Look at this!

    And that's a pitfall I recognise with academia - it can lose touch with the real world due to the large scale of things to study.

    Hey! Over Here! Look at this!

    Statistics and questionnaires are open to interpretation. I have conveyed the truth about my education and interest in the topic. I don't distribute surveys for fun, especially on a platform where people views differ from mine. I am definitely do not feel victimised in the slightest...

    Hey! Over Here! Look at this!

    Education is a learning experience hence why I continue to engage in conversation with people who share opposing views. I am very open to constructive criticism in order to improve. Your failure to present scholarly contribution supporting your views and insult my education level makes me doubt...

    Hey! Over Here! Look at this!

    Social science research is often dictate by some form of bias hence why people continue to dispute it. I'd appreciate you suggesting scholarly contributions that argue against. I do not choose to ignore it as I'm against police brutality overall but my research is surrounding ethnic minorities.

    Hey! Over Here! Look at this!

    Why are blacks more likely to live in urban areas? Why are there likely to be more killings in urban areas? If black people with experience are saying they experience injustice and police brutality why are thousands of people who haven't asked them about their experiences disputing their claims...

    Hey! Over Here! Look at this!

    Why are 93% of black homicides committed by blacks? White people make up roughly 62 percent of the U.S. population but only about 49 percent of those who are killed by police officers. African Americans, however, account for 24 percent of those fatally shot and killed by the police despite...

    Hey! Over Here! Look at this!

    You should visit sometime and see what passes for university level work or would you like me to send you past essays to see what does? Constructive criticism is more helpful than questioning England's academic standards as it provides an opportunity to learn from others, so enlighten me on the...

    Hey! Over Here! Look at this!

    I would love to do this and hope to for a doctoral research project but do not have time time capacity or resources to do so for my postgrad. My work still has to be based on existing scholarly work which more or less take similar positions. By gathering opinions and views i aim to inject some...

    Corruption and Racial Injustice

    My bad misread the link, but my intial point still stands. I don't agree that a lot is their fault as we are often products of our society and various structural issues disadvantage blacks and ethnic minorities in general. Thank you for a healthy debate though and to those who did my...

    Corruption and Racial Injustice

    Yep, took me a while but for research purposes i have to. I understand that 13.2% (the accurate number) committing 52.5% of homicides is problematic. Nonetheless, does not justify the fear as though African-Americans are 8 times more likely to murder then are also 6 time more likely to be...

    Corruption and Racial Injustice

    Yes i agree being privileged in society leads to a lot of people avoiding jail time. And amongst those privileges is white privilege. Please can you take a few minutes to do my survey and contribute your views towards my research.

    Corruption and Racial Injustice

    There is an obvious problem looking at those statistics. If that is the case the next question to address is why do African-Americans commit more murders? Broken communities? And does that give the police reason to see every African-american as a reasonable threat? Expanded Homicide Data Table...

    Hey! Over Here! Look at this!

    Don't you think this is because of the history on non-white people dying due to the systematic oppression enacted by often white people? All lives matter devalues the fact that black people are more likely to be effected and targeted by the criminal justice system. If we believe this is...

    Hey! Over Here! Look at this!

    This is a valuable insight as economic factors do have a major part to play within the criminal justice system. Do you think the privatisation of elements of the system breeds more corrupt activities towards ethnic minorities, such as the requirement to meet arrest targets therefore targeting...

    Corruption and Racial Injustice

    I know in the UK police and military forces are trained to shoot to wound but recognise UK issues differ due to firearms not being legal. I have been told by a U.S. solider who fought in Iraq and someone who worked for a private contractor in Iraq they were told to shoot to wound in certain...

    Hey! Over Here! Look at this!

    Thank you for drawing this to my attention as though i have mentioned this in my research i think it is worth emphasising further the variety the criminal justice system has in the U.S. which could possibly pose problems in addressing corruption in the criminal justice system. In my research...

    Corruption and Racial Injustice

    I compared them because if top policing forces can be trained to not shoot to kill, why not the police? Is it because the average man's life does not matter but capturing terrorist for information does? I do agree the Federal Government play a large role in sustaining corruption in the criminal...

    Corruption and Racial Injustice

    Yes i agree socio-economic status heavily effects corruption, and as ethnic minorities are at the bottom of the socio-economic ladder, i think it often has an impact on them more than other groups. Also, the word terrorist is not exclusive to Muslims/Palestinians/Middle Easterns or anyone who...

    Corruption and Racial Injustice

    Why didn't the police shoot him in his arm then to incapacitate him? Why did they shoot to kill when there were already two officers on him? If the police have to shoot to kill to protect their own lives why aren't there more people being killed by the police daily? Is it okay for the police...

    3 black "men" shot live on facebook video

    These are the ones we are able to see imagine how many killings of people by the police go unmentioned? It highlights the hypocrisy in the United States foreign policy human rights stance if they cannot secure and protect human rights in their government-owned institutions and within their...

    Corruption and Racial Injustice

    What does it sum up? That having money and celebrity status can buy you a get-out-of-jail-free card? Or that being a terrorist that killed 168 people and injured over 600 people does not warrant a death penalty?

    Corruption and Racial Injustice

    I think both Sterling and Castile convey a criminal justice system that disregards the lives of marginalized groups, so Sterling for me is also relevant to the topic of corruption and racial injustice. What happened to Sterling and Castille could have happened to any one, white people included...
