Crime

As a woman who was sexually assaulted by a man who had assaulted more than one woman before me I want enlighten you to what happens when you decide to keep silent. The very first message it sends to your attacker is that it really wasn't a big deal and without having to face any consequences for his actions it opens the door for him to feel like it was ok for him to do that once so it must be ok to continue to do it over and over. Without ever having to face any accusations or consequences you are sending a very dangerous message to all the sexual predators out there. And by not speaking up and filing a report as soon as possible after the attack you are failing to do your part to protect other women from falling victim to the same predator as you. While you may not get a conviction from...

To whom it may concern, My name is Lennie James. I am a 42-year-old father of three. I grew up in south-west London. I was brought up by a single mother. I was orphaned at 10, lived in a kids' home until I was 15 and was then fostered. I tell you this not to claim any special knowledge of how you've grown, but to explain how I have, and from where I draw my understanding. I want to talk to you about the knife you're carrying in your belt or pocket or shoe. The one you got from your mum's kitchen or ordered online or robbed out of the camping shop. The knife you tell yourself you carry for protection, because you never know who else has got one. I want to talk to you about what that knife will do for you. If you carry it, the chances are you will be called on to use it. It is a...

Dear Victim's Commissioner, Please accept this as a formal complaint against yourself from one of the many victims who you fail, although in my case this appears to be more serious than just 'failure' and more about deliberate protection of wrongdoers. Your actions are causing harm to an abuse victim and it is time for you to seek other occupation, especially as victims have found you useless and ineffectual, and a twitter poll was done on your effectiveness, and you were found to have failed, ignored and snubbed a majority of victims. Your role appears to be as a figurehead that the government felt under presssure to create, and who can churn out necessary PR material as needed. And that is a waste of taxpayers' money. You have only contacted me once regarding the very...

Dear, Policer Officers and the Public, We read a book in class called The Crucible. This book was a big mess and it was people getting accused of witch craft and getting killed for nothing. It was so bad and the courts were a disaster. This story reminded me of what is happening today with police brutality. They aren’t the exactly same but you can compare them in away. Like police brutality, the courts were killing innocent people for being “witches.” The girl that accused everyone, her dad was the reverend. Back then, that was a respected position. Everyone took her word for what she said about witches. Today, when police are on trial for brutality, shootings, or other misconduct, the courts mostly take their side. People in power are more trusted. So even back then the...

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...
