To gain a sense of authority over his victims. An maybe he also likes to feel the consequences of the power that comes during the beatings and the destructive psychological damage to the POWs that he inflicts: “ ‘He did enjoy hurting POWs,’ wrote Hatto ‘he was satisfying his sexual desire by hurting them’ ” (Hillenbrand 242). His desire to hurt them and destroy them was not only to physically injure them, it actually pleased him sexually, which is twisted in every way imaginable. He gets so messed up and insane because he wanted to scar these men not only mentally but physically as well. The acts that the Bird did to the POWs shows that he wanted to haunt them in their dreams and drive them to the point of insanity: “Watanabe combined beatings with acts meant to batter men’s psych’s” (243).

Have you ever thought about the long-lasting argument over whether child soldiers should be given amnesty? Well there is no definite answer and in many ways is a complicated argument. To begin with, child soldiers are kids that are usually forced to join armed forces and commit violence to people all around them through false promises and poverty. In many cases, once they join, its almost impossible to change their mind and leave because they immediately get brainwashed through drugs and alcohol. From there, the kids learn how to kill and then all of the violence starts to happen to those around them.
For example, Luke Corcoran, stated that “What [juveniles] are not going to have is the opportunity to kill another person.” (Hernandez, Page 6) Additionally, although juvenile crime is on the decline, “persuading the public to soften its stance on youthful offenders… is a hard sell.” (Hernandez, Page 6) However, most juveniles feel guilty about their crimes and change their personalities in prison. For example, a juvenile “took part in a violent fight… Although tried as an adult, he served his sentence in Juvenile Hall, and by all accounts has turned his life around… Jose represents how kids, even those charged with violent offenses, can change when given a chance.” (“Four Kids, Four Crimes,” Page 1) Similarly, Jacob Ind changed his values by learning that his detention was what he needed to “heal himself” as a person (“Five Stories,” Page 1) As a result, juvenile detention alone can enforce a life lesson for juveniles not to commit any crimes. In conclusion, having juveniles tried as adults is an unfair deal. After all, they are influenced by their psychological malaises, such as the effects of extreme brain tissue loss in areas controlling compulsion. This, in part, is caused by adults directly telling them to commit a wrongdoing without thought of the consequences.
In the essay “Being Mean” from Living up the Street by Gary Soto, the tone is tense and mischievous based on the author’s diction and the use of repetition. Gary Soto describes his childhood as being very violent and gives details about how it is so: “Rick and I and the Molinas all enjoyed looking for trouble and often went to extremes to try and get into fights.” By Soto saying this, it represents how mischievous he was as a child. Moreover, the title of his essay “Being Mean” fits the tone of being mischievous perfectly because the definition of mean is for someone to go out of their way to cause you pain, which he does, but in a mischievous way. Furthermore, Gary Soto also uses repetition to let the reader know how he feels about certain

The capitalized vowel “I” holds the notion of self and person. This voice of I breaks the silence of Jim as he is usually referred to as a part of the group. The gang is obviously quite violent as they like “picking fights” and “swinging fists,” making Jim more violent in nature. Jim finally sings, “I’m tiring,” for he is aware of his corruption but cannot help his new material driven lifestyle. Where at first Jim is singing and there seems to be a sense of excitement from the rowdy nature of the gang, Jim’s “grim” starts “wilting” and he is “sighing” in this “sinking light” at the end of the poem.
The fight lead him to being bloodied and beaten up. Both kinds of violence had an effect on Holden though in different ways. The first example had a more long term effect on Holden, the story of the boy drove home Holden's idea about how hard it is to be truly yourself when you are always being pressured into conforming or becoming a phony, and the boy becomes a symbol of the struggle to Holden and perhaps fuel for his hatred of phonies and maturation. The other kind effected Holden in the short term but still caused him to make rash actions shortly after the fight. Though most of the damage done to Holden was external pain and didn't have a totally lasting effect on his
