My experiences with Military Life, Defense Contractor positions and the Contractor Lifestyle

My experiences with Military Life, Defense Contractor positions and the Contractor Lifestyle

Old Sarge here with a few words of wisdom. During the past several weeks there has been a drastic increase in violence towards police. As a retired police officer, I am appalled by what I have witnessed. To date it seems that the media as a whole has turned a blind eye towards the actual good that police perform and instead has focused on their own agenda. What about the police officer that digs in his pocket to help someone in need? Not newsworthy. The police officer that pulls a family from a burning building before the fire department arrives? Nope, they don’t make the headlines. The police officer that volunteers their time to assist community development? These things don’t get any published acknowledgment, so it’s like they don’t exist. And this isn’t even the first time in recent memory things went down this path. Let me tell you a story from my life in a blue uniform. In 1992, I was a young Police Sgt responding to a large fight in progress. This was 2 weeks after the riots in Los Angeles that happened in response to the Rodney King verdict. The never ending press coverage showing mob mentality was deeply etched in everyone’s minds. You can reason with an individual but when you get a group together, you get a mob mentality that can’t be reasoned with. I arrived at the scene and found there was a violent mob of approximately 300 people. This was not a mob attacking random individuals though. They werent burning and looting buildings. This was two rival fraternities that decided to have a rumble. They were battering each other with sticks and bats and batons. There were injured and bloody people everywhere.

Australian politics - contentious issues

Australian politics - contentious issues

Looking at marriage equality and what has been said about it on Q&A (with some clips to watch). Another Q&A clip about Independent Candidate Bob Katter (in an episode about mental health) where he gets challenged by Josh Thomas about his homophobia and his denial that there are any gay people in his electorate. This lesson also looks at immigration (particularly illegal immigrants) and looks at the language used to label them. It also looks at newspaper articles and political cartoons about a drowned three year old Syrian boy, Aylan Kurdi, whose lifeless body was washed ashore in Turkey. It includes scaffolding to write an analysis of some of these political cartoons.

Political cartoons

Political cartoons

A lesson used in a Senior Authority English class to teach students how to analyse visual images in preparation for the QCS test. It allows students to practise their use of the following core skills or common curriculum elements (CCEs): CCE 5 Interpreting the meaning of pictures; CCE 33 Inferring; and CCE 43 Analysing. This lesson provides recent political cartoons from Australian cartoonists David Pope (from The Canberra Times) and Mark Knight from The Herald Sun. Many are about the Double Dissolution election or the recent census but there are some about the great barrier reef and privatizing medicare. This lesson provides a brief overview of the history of political cartoons in Australia. It reveals how they work and what can be learned from studying them. It revisits the concept satire and defines many of the persuasive / satirical devices they use (e.g. symbolism, caricature, labels, analogy, irony, juxtaposition, and exaggeration). It has a few example analyses and then gives the students questions to ask themselves when analyzing a political cartoon. Students then answer these questions using the cartoons provided (mostly about refugee issues).
