Keating forces him to create a poem on the spot in front of the class, although he is well-aware of Todd’s resistance to speak in front of others, after he write a poem on his own as requested. Mr. Keating questions Todd and installs him with a sense of confidence in his own abilities, “Mr. Anderson thinks that everything inside of him is worthless and embarrassing. Isn't that right, Todd? Isn't that your worst fear? Well, I think you're wrong. I think you have something inside of you that is worth a great deal”. Mr. Keating teaches Todd to think freely for himself and that these thoughts and opinions he has are valued. In the end, Todd becomes self-reliant, confident in himself and his ideas and beliefs. He does not conform to society and distinguishes himself amongst the rest, maintaining his own voice, and he overcomes his previous shy and isolated self, becoming a leader, when introduced to these ideas of individualism and

Todd Beamer was a very courages person. Todd Beamer was one of the men that regained control of the plane that was hijacked on 9/11.

Keith Foster a former deputy police chief was sentenced to four years in prison for being a corrupt police officer that was profiting off of selling drugs. I do believe that since he is an officer of all that they gave him some sort of leeway. For example, Foster had three days to show up at the Denver prison by himself. If I were to get arrested I would have to be processed with the rest of the felons and be transported on a bus with other inmates. The fact that he was able to take himself shows that he already has special treatment, just because the title he used to have. I think that the reason why he was able to go on his own to prison is because he is a former police officer and he mostly has a higher risk of getting hurt while in prison.

The police have what Seth Stoughton calls a “warrior” problem (226).

This mentality has created problems for police departments causing the citizens be fearful and mistrusting the police. This is what is happening in Greensboro. Their ‘proactive policing’ strategies are that of a warrior mentality. So as part of the first recommendation GPD would have to change its mindset and adopt the guardian mentality.
