Rewrite the following passage so that someone unfamiliar with law enforcement may understand it. "In the United States, law enforcement is required to read you your Miranda rights after you've been detained. Under these rights, a detainee can legally plead the fifth amendment and secure legal representation."
"United States law requires that a police officer remind you of your rights after you have been arrested. These rights include refusing to answer law enforcement's questions, requesting representation by a lawyer if desired, and being appointed a lawyer if you cannot afford to hire one on your own."
What is "diffusion of responsibility"? Provide an example of how this may occur.
Diffusion of responsibility occurs when an individual is less likely to take action on something when others are present. Example: You're attending a birthday party. One of the people eating birthday cake begins to choke, then faints. Someone giving CPR to the individual yells, "Call 9-1-1!" Because the order wasn't given to you or to anyone in particular, you assume someone else will call 9-1-1. Others make the same assumption—which results in nobody calling for help.
Subject: Gender Studies
What is the difference between sexism and prejudice?
Sexism, like any other "-ism" (i.e. racism), involves a class of people with power or privilege (like men) discriminating against a class of people with less power (women and other genders). Prejudice is discrimination against any class of people, regardless of power or privilege. A male hiring manager who does not hire a woman because of her gender would be engaging in sexism. A female hiring manager who does not hire a man because of his gender would be engaging in prejudice.
