• To begin, the novel Uglies does connect to 2017 because it talks about how they separate two groups. The government of the book I’m reading decides to separate two groups which are the “ugly” group and the

    • Sounds like a very interesting book and I like the connection you made between it and the Muslim Ban!

    • The book sounds very interesting, I’ll definitely have to check it out. It was an outstanding connection though!

    • I’ve read the book uglies and really enjoyed it. It’s interesting to see the connection you made between the book and trump…

    • Dear Noyoltzin:
      I enjoyed your book “Trump’s Muslim Ban looks like Uglyville.” I found it funny when you said “Are you kidding me fattie? You can’t even read.” I believe this quote is funny because it’s true and is something alot of people are were thinking.

    • Trump had no reason to do the muslim ban. And he didnt ban the countries he had business with.

  • Dear Adanely, thank you for your comment. A well trained officer is a officer who engages with the community that they are working with. Right now police officers get trained for 9 months and then start working with a community that they don’t even know. What do you think it means to be a well trained officer?

  • Dear, Louis

    I am very moved by your post Bernie Sanders’ Socialism. One sentence you wrote that stands out to me is “Bernie Sanders is one of the only leading politicians in our country that supports strong government intervention and regulation of most processes” this is such a good sentence because you are talking about Bernie Sanders’ good…[Read more]

    Did you know that a professional hairstylist spends more time learning about their profession than a police officer? This should make citizens feel unsafe. Citizens are getting help from cops that have very

    • Dear Noyoltzin

      I am excited about your post What does it mean to be a well trained police officer? because you have really interesting facts about the training. One thing you wrote that was interesting was the fact that you put the training in your article.

      • Dear Adanely, thank you for your comment. A well trained officer is a officer who engages with the community that they are working with.

    • I completely agree with you on the fact that police officers should undergo additional training other than their physicality. Not saying that their physical healthy is not important, but what is also just as important is to be able to remain subjective and open minded when dealing with the public. No police officer or anyone working within the community should withhold certain types of biases and/or perceptions about certain groups of people regarding their race, gender, ethnicity, sexual orientations, or disability. Most of what we, as nation, have heard and seen throughout recent years about police brutality on people of all skin colors could have been easily avoided if officers were trained properly on different types of social situations.

      I really enjoyed your post. Thank You.

    • I agree that police officers need more training in aspects other than physical. It’s sad to hear about the prejudices placed upon people of color especially when it’s people we know and done by people of authority. I recently took a psychology of prejudice class and it really opened my eyes to the many stereotypes being created about people or color. I feel that if police officers were to take something away they should have a mandatory session about learning about their innate biases.
