Suppose you are a sociologist studying alleged police brutality. Construct two arguments, one proposing that you ought to be as objective as possible in your work and the other suggesting that, while striving for accuracy, you should take a stand against any injustices which your research may uncover. Which position do you find more convincing? Why?

Answers

(a) Police brutality belongs to racism, religion and powerless, poor people

(b) Human rights should work on it and bring it to media

Explanation:

(a) Police brutality belongs to racism, religion and powerless, poor people

Police brutality means the wrong use of power wearing the uniform under the law enforcement departments. As a sociologist, my research says police use its power against the powerless and poor people as well as urge the racism and religious war in communities with confronting them without any legal orders. As an example, 24 March 1922, Irish officers of (USC) broke into a Catholic house and killed six catholic civilian families. On 12 December 2010, Douglas Zerby was killed by two California police officers. He was shot with 12 bullets and police claimed of mishandling of gun mistakenly.

(b) Human rights should work on it and bring it to media

I stand against this police brutality and injustice with people belonging different races, religion and who are powerless and poor. I will try my level best to keep this case in front of human rights activists, media and law enforcement agencies including courts with the suggestion that policemen on duty must be monitor through body camera with built-in time technology. The benefit of the camera and time technology is that headquarter will be able to see its duty officer's activities and keep an eye on them. Time technology will help to give an accurate time of incidents so no one can plagiarize it or change or remove the proofs.

Best position:

In my views media is the best place to discuss this issue because media has a strong impact in countries and its easy forum for a common people to get aware about issues because almost everyone has a tv in the house.
