What's wrong with McDonald's?

This leaflet is asking you to think for a moment about what lies behind Pretrial and trial clean, bright image. It's got a lot to hide.

Why then do they design the service so that you're in and out as soon as possible? Why is it so difficult to relax in a McDonald's? Why do you feel hungry again so soon after eating a Big Mac? We're all subject to the pressures of stupid advertising, consumerist hype and the fast pace of big city life - but it doesn't take any special intelligence to start asking questions about McDonald's and to realise that something is seriously wrong.

The more you find out about McDonald's processed food, the less attractive it becomes, as this leaflet will show. The truth about hamburgers is enough to put you off them for life.

What's the connection between McDonald's and starvation in the 'Third World'? If you do send money to Band Aid, or shop at Oxfam, etc. It shifts the blame from governments and doesnothing to challenge the power of multinational corporations. The power of the US dollar means that in order to buy technology and manufactured goods, poor countries are trapped into producing more and more food for export to the States.

Out of 40 of the world's poorest countries, 36 export food to the USA - thewealthiest. Millions of acres of the best farmland in poor contries are being used for our benefit - for tea, coffee, tobacco, etc. McDonald's is directly involved in this economic imperialism, which keeps most black people poor and hungry while many whites grow fat.

This diverts attention from one cause: Cattle consume 10 times the amount of grain and soy that humans do: Of the million tons of grain and so fed to livestock, only 21 million tons of meat and by-products are used.

The waste is million tons per year at a value of 20 billion US dollars. It has been calculated that this sum would feed, clothe and house the world's entire population fo one year.

Globally, one billion people depend on water flowing from these forests, which soak up rain and release it gradually. The disaster in Ethiopia and Sudan is at leastpartly due to uncontrolled deforestation. In Amazonia - where there are now aboutbeef ranches - torrential rains sweep down through the treeless valleys, eroding the land and washing away the soil.

The bare earth, baked by the tropical sun, becoms useless for agriculture. It has been estimated that this destruction causes at least one species of animal, plant or insect to become extinct every few hours.United States Probation and Pretrial Services. Northern District of Florida.

Pretrial and trial

Statutory pretrial diversion is well established in 48 states and the District of alternatives reroute defendants away from traditional criminal justice processing after arrest but prior to adjudication or final entry of judgment. Pretrial diversion is designed to address factors.

PRE-TRIAL PROTECTIONS. Pre-trial procedures are critically important components of the justice process because the great majority of all criminal cases are resolved informally at this stage and never come before the courts.

During the last decade, research on practices to improve pretrial release decisions has increased dramatically.

This clearly demonstrates the need to move to a risk-based system, relying on actuarial instruments to inform decisions regarding the likelihood the defendant will appear in court or pose a danger to the community.
