Tiana Coach Pd.7 Topic: Racism in the U.S. Court System According to the dictionary, false imprisonment is a restraint of a person in a bounded area without consent. Eventhough false imprisonment is a common-law felony and tort, innocent people are still being wrongfully convicted. False imprisonments are often occurred because of someone’s gender, race, or a previous criminal record. For instance, Troy Davis was a victim of false imprisonment of a crime he didn’t commit. He was convicted of the murder of a police officer named Mark McPhail. Witnesses said they saw Davis with gun that shot and killed McPhail, but detectives weren’t able to find any physical evidence of Troy Davis. Unfortunately, Troy Davis was executed after Bill Clinton’s speech hit the air of him announcing to slow down the appeals process of the execution until physical evidence was present. Since there wasn’t any physical evidence to convict Troy Davis in the first place, the family of McPhail has never received correct justice for the murder of their son, father, and brother because Georgia police officials have never found his murderer. On the other hand, as an innocent man, Troy Davis’ family haven’t received justice either. Davis has been pleading innocent for more than fifteen years and has never received the right approach to his court appeals because of his ethnical background as an African American. Many believe that the execution of Troy Davis is equivalent to the history of any U.S. lynchings…
Racism comes in many different shapes and forms
Sadly I have had my fair share since I’ve been born
Judged before I have been even given a chance
Delaying my future and for my career to advance
My parents tell me of stories they have had to endure
I wish racism was a sickness with a dose of medication to cure
Thankfully there are good hearted and educated people
Who can look beyond skin colour and treat us all as an equal
Why would another person’s skin colour be such an issue…

Unlike baseball and apple pie, racism is a part of the country’s history that many would like to put to rest. The events behind racism have left the country with a black eye. Many may suggest that the nation is no longer a victim of racism, but it is and racism…

Racism is generally defined as actions, practices or beliefs, or social or political systems that are based in views that see the human species to be divided into races with shared traits, abilities, or qualities, such as personality, intellect, morality, or other cultural behavioral characteristics, and especially the belief that races can be ranked as inherently superior or inferior to others, or that members of different races should be treated differently.

In this essay I will consider the social, economic and political factors of racism . Underestimate racism at your peril. Given that its influence pervades our society, its influence on western cinema has not been given proper recognition. The juxtapositioning of racism with fundamental economic, social and political strategic conflict draws criticism from socialists, many of whom fail to comprehend the full scope of racism . Keeping all of this in mind, in this essay I will examine the major issues…
Definition essay Brian Hauschild

The court plays a very critical role in American Criminal Justice. Without the development of courts, those who violate the law would face no penalty and would commit crimes and walk free. In this paper I will evaluate and examine the American Criminal court system. I will describe the court and the purpose that it serves as so I will also define the dual court system. I will also describe the role that early legal codes, the common law and the precedent played in the development of courts.
