This widespread galvanization over body cameras exemplifies the human tendency, in times of tragedy, to latch on to the most readily available solution to a complex problem. (p.1796) Police wearing body cameras should be able to prevent violence and show who’s right and who’s wrong in any situation. However, with the recent violent acts of police officers and victims, no officers have been prosecuted. Over the next years, the procreation of police body cameras will change the decisions and actions of officers in hopes of reducing police brutality. After all they are here to protect not harm.
This topic sentence and paragraph support my thesis because in my research paper, I am arguing why police body cameras should be worn. This clearly states my position and I have credible, reasonable facts that supports.

This widespread galvanization over body cameras exemplifies the
human tendency, in times of tragedy, to latch on to the most readily
available solution to a complex problem. But as the outcome of Garner’s
case demonstrates, even when high-quality, graphic footage is
available, officers may still not be indicted, let alone convicted.
Moreover, body cameras are a powerful — and indiscriminate — technology.
Their proliferation over the next decade will inevitably change
the nature of policing in unexpected ways, quite possibly to the detriment
of the citizens the cameras are intended to protect.

My topic sentence is there is a gender based income inequality in America, because men make more money than women while working in the same field. This form of inequality goes back for centuries, because men were taught that they provide for the household, while the women stay at home and raise the children.
In this paper I will discuss that even in this day and age women and men can have the same training and education and be of a different race for the same job but women get over looked for the job, because companies feel men are stronger and can hold it to together better, and women are emotional creatures and would not be able to prioritize work and home.
According to the article
When will America realize that women are just as qualified, hardworking, and focused as men, and should be compensated with the same pay and respected for it.
