Our class was taken out on a normal day by a busy intersection. We took notes on current laws being broken, RIGHT IN FRONT OF US. People may not notice their actions, but our response states and describes them.
Ali Azooz Mr. Breen Sept. 16, 2012 Laws Affecting Society 1. Laws reflect the values and beliefs of people. Society can be judged a certain way based on which laws they break. Everyone thinks differently, while some people believe a law should be respected and followed, others might think differently. Laws are created by the government in an effort to keep and sustain a safe and happy living environment for everybody, and those few that break such laws may be a threat to our society. 2. Society sometimes accepts the breaking of some laws, while supporting others. A few examples that take place in our neighborhood are: -underage children smoking -riding bikes without wearing helmets -“J” walking through streets -parking their car taking multiple spots Those are just a few to list, but as you can see there is some sort of trend relating between all these examples. Most laws being broken around our area are not affecting the rest of society in a direct way. It is mostly a problem to the one committing these acts, which is why I believe society doesn’t necessarily care about them vs. other laws that could be broken. I assume it’s a bad thing as everyone is selfish in their own way, not caring about the greater good of their community. In another perspective, I would agree that I am okay with this as long as I’m not affected by their acts. Speaking for myself and the society, I think most people would leave it to the authorities to deal with those people, and wouldn’t get involved as it doesn’t affect us directly.
