Evil In The World Essay, Research Paper
Portraying Evil in the World
The article I picked to show the evil in the world today was about a man named Abner Louima. This man was arrested in 1997 and is suing the state of New York for being beaten in a restroom in the station while being questioned. The sole witness Conelle Lugg, 19, he heard loud screaming and banging noises against the wall of the bathroom while he was in his cell, he then saw a police officer push Louima into a cell pants down and blood rushing out of his open wounds. The officer then proceeded to tell Louima to get on his knees. After all this Lugg said, that Louima fell to the floor and screamed in pain and begged to be taken to a hospital.
Four officers are accused of brutalizing Louima, 32, a Haitian immigrant who was arrested in a fight outside a nightclub in August of 97 and was mistakenly accused of hitting an officer. When a paramedic crew got to the precinct and finally gave Louima a chair to sit in the officer who had placed Louima in the cell returned and told Louima to stop screaming in pain.
At the trial Lugg was asked by the prosecution to point out the man he had seen put Louima in his cell. Lugg quickly pointed to Officer Justin A. Volpe who is charged with torturing Louima by ramming a stick into his rectum and then into his mouth. Prosecutors say that Louima suffered a torn rectum and bladder. Louima required two months of hospitalization and three operations to repair the damage Volpe had done. The three other officers are being charged with joining Volpe in beating Louima in the police car while driving to the precinct.
This is one of the many stories I found in the newspaper that portrays evil in today s society. We as a people have become cold and callous, we show no remorse for our actions no matter how bad they are. This article proves that even the people who are supposed to uphold the law, the truly virtuous in which we lay our trust is beyond evil they are downright morbid. There isn t much good left in the world but it s a shame when we let those who would stab us in the back protect us.
