Arguing Cause Essay In January 1993, Adolf Hitler became the chancellor of Germany and with this title came the harsh persecution and murder of 6,000,000 Jews and the destruction of 5,000 Jewish communities. These Jews were victims of Germany’s deliberate and systematic attempt to annihilate the entire Jewish population. In a time of economic hardship, after the loss of a large amount of territory in World War I, the Nazi party gained the advantage in the political system of Germany and used a vicious propaganda campaign against political opponents (Franklin). This government was soon consolidated and within a year of taking office, Hitler was in absolute control of Germany. With grassroots organization, a police infrastructure and secret police, the Nazis were blamed for Germany’s ills and terrorized, beaten, killed or sent to concentration camps in an effort to eliminate the race (Marrus). Many have questioned the motives of the Holocaust and tried to find a name to blame or an explanation for the actions the followers took who seemed to have no issues following their leader without questioning the actions they were being told to take. Naturally, people blame the key initiator and conceptualizer, Adolf Hitler (Marrus). Without hiding any hatred towards the Jews or showing any remorse or regret for his actions, Hitler lead a nation to believe that the Jews were a race of sin. Did one person shatter the ability of a world full of people to think for themselves? Was it the influence of religion, that was used in explanation and convincing, that made the murder of a race acceptable? Was it the fear of a leader who seemed to have unlimited power the cause of people becoming murders? What were the motivational factors of the Holocaust? What make it okay for a father to kill another man’s child because they were Jewish? Was the nation hurting so badly that it eased their pain to watch a race suffer to their deaths? To look back on the Holocaust, one must wonder how the events escaladed why they did. It makes one question why there was no one person, no one country and no combined effort that put a stop to the events that were taking place. What makes a nation, a region of the world, turn to one man and believe what he has to say? What makes it okay to kill? What influences people to forget the beliefs that they were taught as a child and act on the beliefs of a leader? Questions such as these have been studied for years. Research on new religious movements, the thoughts of those partaking in cult activity and the patterns of human behavior have been studied and analyzed. What does this understanding bring? It could help bring peace to nations of war. It could prevent groups from forming and causing damage, like acts of ritual murder, mass suicide and terrorist acts. Could events like Jonestown, Waco and September 11th been avoided? The past can only be studied. We cannot go back and reverse the groups, the logic, the actions of these people but we can study what the cause was. If we can understand the logic, can we prevent it in the future? There are different factors that are present in every case, but what makes people do wrong when they come together as a group of people and what makes that logic seem reasonable? People want to have a meaningful life. People want to serve God or humanity. People want to be taken care of, to feel protected and secure. People want to find a home. Research has been conducted and concludes these things are what lead people to try to better their lives. This search to better their own lives, to serve, to be taken care of, to find a home leaves people venerable (Zuesse). Groups have been shown to take advantage of just that. Alcoholics Anonymous provides a setting where venerable people can come and find a home. They can become a family who provide support to better their lives. They protect each other from judgment. Alcoholics Anonymous: a group providing good for a broken person. On the other hand, a prostitution rings give the ‘Pimp’ the power to give broken girls the ability to ‘serve humanity’. They are ‘cared’ for and ‘provided’ for by their Pimp. They find a family of sorts to be ‘supported’ by. Prostitution: a ‘family’ for girls who need to find home? Does the need for people to find a meaningful life erase morals, make torture acceptable and explain the ability for a world to murder a race? Leaders demand loyalty and suppress criticism, another theory presented and researched to explain people coming together with one intention, should it be right or wrong. Leaders have shown that there is a mindset of absolute power that is instilled, if a leader is given power without checks and balances. There are leaders who claim to have special knowledge that guides them and the power they hold. Research has proven that good leaders make people feel important and appreciated. The unnatural powers that some leaders claim to hold combined with the ability to make people feel important and appreciated has been proven a force strong enough to hold a group of followers together, following a corrupt leader (Tyrrell). Although unnatural powers cannot be proven as a cause of Hitler’s power and followers, a group in England was formed by a man named David Berg who was portrayed as a follower of God, who claimed to have direct communication with God. People began following Berg and all his decrees. His leadership led the group to change their names, unlinking everyone to their previous lives, move to rural areas with no neighbors and to partake in sexual activities, including sexually abusing the children of the group. One follower, who had been abused from the age of three by grown men of the group, was given the opportunity to escape the abuse and move away from the group but turned down the offer because “I was too scared to leave The Family, the only world I knew” (Jones). Fear kept the young girl from Berg’s group from leaving. Fear and intimidation have been researched and applied to situations and have been proven to play a role in the ability of a group to instill a certain mindset into its followers. Hitler ordered his police and secret police to kill, or send to a concentration camp, anyone who was helping a Jew in any way. This made those who were helping the Jewish race fearful for their lives (Franklin). Although fear, leadership and the need for a meaningful life have all been topics researched the sum of these combined early in life can be accounted for much of our behavior. Early on in life, our behavior patterns are established in the family. We comply with the way our family operates as a way to survive. Our leaders are our parents. Our group members are our siblings. We are taught to rely on our parents, our leaders, to teach us what we need to understand. We look to them to make decisions, we obey there authority and we don’t see ourselves as responsible for our actions (Tyrrell). These behaviors can be found in animals as well. In packs, animals are protected from predators. At times, the weak animal must be cast out to be eaten by the predators so the pack can live. As a group, the survival chances are much higher (Tyrrell). This can also be seen in people. There is an enormous power of the group. Watched and researched, studies have shown that if there is a mugging in the street, we are more likely to help if we are alone then when we are in a group. This is because if there are others around we look to others to determine how we are supposed to react. We watch and wait for someone else to take responsibility (Tyrrell). This study shows leaders are the people who detach themselves from this group and possess the ability to make a decision based on their individual judgment. Because they have stepped forward and lead the way they have exploited the group behavior and they may gain followers. People are fearful of individualistic views because of the embarrassment, and fear of being an outcast, that comes from thinking outside the box (Tyrrell). Without these individualistic thoughts there is no change or progress, good or bad. There have been many studies done, conducted in Germany, to examine why Germans let the mass murder of 6,000,000 Jews continue in their country. In the beginning of the study, one theory presented was the German people did not know of the events. This was proved false when the subjects were able to produce newspaper and artifacts that they had kept form the time period proving the public was aware of the cruelty. The Jewish race was being described as ‘internal enemies’. There were anti-Jewish programs on and anti-Jewish propaganda present everywhere. The concentration camps were described to the public as camps for “those with hydrocephalus, cross-eyed, deformed half-Jews and a whole series of racially inferior types” (Ezard).
The German people were aware of many of the event that were occurring and stood by to watch. The Germans were told the Jewish were an evil race. With programs, print and propaganda a nation was persuaded to believe that the Jewish race was unfit to live amongst the Germans (Ezard). We ask how this can happen, how a nation can believe something so wrong, but as a society we are very similar. We believe what are taught to believe without questioning the information presented. Our history books present one source of information and we memorize that. We dress the way that those who are leaders in the fashion world tell us to dress. We listen to talk shows and take in their opinionated facts as our own opinion. We hear about a diet that will help you drop pounds and try it because it is best to skinny and fit. We are who we are told to be. In one way or another, we are influenced by wanting to be a better person. We look to surround ourselves with those who will protect us and be a family. We look to our leader s to make the decisions we will live by and even if we disagree, we continue to go about our day. Our fears prevent us from speaking our mind and we follow the pack, because it is safer than standing independently. Our world is full of terrible events, happy celebrations and questionable judgment and we are taught to cry for the terrible events, celebrate the celebrations and to follow our leaders because they undoubtedly know better than us.

The Carr’s noticed the smell of the chemical and immediately complained of headaches, congestion, and runny noses. At the Trial Court level the Carr’s failed to provide expert testimony as a link between the chemical spill and the physical symptoms the Carr’s had experienced . The Suit: The trial court granted a no-evidence summary judgment in favor of the Appellee, Union Pacific Rail Road. The Appellants, (the Carr’s, et.al), failed to meet two of the four elements of negligence. The Appellants appealed, arguing that expert testimony is not required.

You Are a Police Officer

...You are a Police Officer. The task at hand was to read and interpret three different scenarios. Then write about how I would react to the situation if I was the officer on the scene. I have to determine if I would have probable cause, reasonable suspicion, and whether or not I would pursue the suspect or suspects involved in the scenario. I have thoroughly read and analyzed each scenario, and have come to a decision for each situation. In Scenario one a juvenile is spotted walking near a sports warehouse building that is being watched due to it being burglarized several times over the past six months. The juvenile is wearing a heavy luxury sports coat, and also has a pair of new sneakers on. As the officer on the scene I would determine that there was not sufficient probable cause to stop and pursue the individual. There is reasonable suspicion being presented in this situation, the juvenile is wearing expensive and new sports gear that could have very well come from the sports warehouse. Although I do not believe this is enough to stop the juvenile. The farthest I would go in pursuing the individual would be to tail him looking for any suspicious activity to further pursue him. In the event his actions provided sufficient probable cause I would calmly stop the juvenile and question him on what he was doing in the area. I would make a decision to arrest him or not based on his answers and my own personal observation. Scenario two presents a situation in which......

...the case of Mr. Margrieter V. New Hotel Monteleone, Inc are Duty, breach, cause in effect, proximal cause and harm (damage suffered as a proximal result of the defendant’s breach of duty). Duty refers to an obligation one has to another party. If duty “constrains and channels behavior in a socially responsible way” (Owen, 2007), then the Hotel Menteloene has a duty to take reasonable measures to protect its guests from harm. Breach, an improper act or omission, can also be viewed as an element that exists in this case. The hotel did not provide adequate security, as it did not replace the security personnel that had called in sick. It is particularly a breach if the hotel has determined that security is necessary to protect the property and its guests. It provided one employee to monitor the rear door, but the employee is not reported to have experience in security. Evidence of lack of security at exits and entrances, As well as lack of camera security monitoring and alarms are all actions that created a situation in which Mr. Margrieter could be abducted without notice, as could any other guest. Cause in Fact refers to the direct cause of one party’s action leading to the harm of another. If the lack of adequate security has led to Mr. Margrieter’s injuries, then cause in fact can be shown.

Drug Test

...Testing students for drugs In this section of the reading it states that drug testing in schools is valid and not violating the fourth amendment. I would say that I do agree with them because they are trying to keep drugs out of school. In my opinion this does not violate the fourth amendment because the children are choosing to be in sports even though they know there will be drug testing. I would say this is more of a search than a seizer. The school does have their rights to ask for a drug test for students who want to participate in sports. School have a rule that if you are participating in sports than you cannot be on drugs. They would not be drug tested against their will which means that it is not an illegal search. I have never heard of a middle school drug testing athletes and I feel that should not be done. Middle school children are too young to be thought of as children on drugs. If they are being drug tested then they are being introduced to the thought that drugs are out there and can be done. I think it is very inappropriate to drug test a middle school student. There should be an age limit on drug testing students. Squeezing luggage on a bus I am going to have to disagree with this section of the reading.

A damage exists, so the victim, Peter, doesn’t have to prove a fault, according to the strict liability principle. We need to identify the fact.

Terry’s defense argued the gun found on Terry was inadmissible in court as evidence, stating that his 4th Amendment right to protection from unreasonable search and seizures was violated. The court denied the defendants' motion on the ground that Officer McFadden, on the basis of his experience, "had reasonable cause to believe . . . that the defendants were conducting themselves suspiciously, and some interrogation should be made of their action." Purely for his own protection, the court held, the officer had the right to pat down the outer clothing of these men, who he had reasonable cause to believe might be armed.

No Hope for Perfect Research

...Name Course Instructor Date There is No Hope for doing Perfect Research (Griffins 1998, p 97) Do you agree? I entirely agree to Griffins allegation that there is no hope in perfect research. It is of great importance to understand the three major words that is hope, perfect and research before I delve deeper into the discussion. According to Sridhar, research is a logical effort to gain knowledge and a progress from the known to the unknown (Sridhar, 7). Research enables individuals to gain fresh insight, think intellectually, get answers to problems and therefore solve problems, (Sridhar, 7). Hope according to the McMillan dictionary is positivity about the future. It is the act of wishing that good things are going to happen in the future. Perfect, according to the American Heritage Dictionary of English language (fourth edition) is the aspect of having all the requisite characteristics and qualities. Just as the adage goes to err is human, the research process is not left out since it is undertaken by humans and is thus affected by human biases which in turn distort the results. Biases are methodical errors that lead to loss of validity since it limits the significance and applicability of a study, (Sica, 780). Other errors that affect research include errors associated with sampling which lead to variation since a sample population may not reflect fully the characteristics of the whole target population. Research is an incomplete process since it is a discovery...
