Gacy was a murderer in the making. “Gacy was born March 17, 1942, in Chicago, Illinois to an alcoholic, often abusive World War I Veteran and a homemaker.” Gacy’s cruel murders stemmed from, not only pure evil, but also from his childhood.

In the scene ROGER OUT OF HIS MISERY, Jake is pulled in with the crooked cops lead by Alonzo to “tax” Roger. This is part of the crooked cop business. They get themselves in a bind and they make others pay for it. Alonzo is the head that abusing his power as a cop. He uses his power to kill his own friend Roger for their gain.
In another outrageously violent scene, Sonny is murdered point blank by multiple gangsters firing guns at him from all angles. The ending is another example of excessive violence. When Michael becomes the new Don, his first act is to murder the leaders of some of the biggest crime families in the city. The sequence is very dark and very violent. It’s no wonder that this film is not allowed to be viewed in some Italian households; it’s these particular scenes that account for the Italian’s perception of this film: that it is an inaccurate depiction of the mafia that uses violence to real in audiences.
Capone’s men were instructed to monitor their targets’ habits and whereabouts, so they rented an apartment opposite from the Moran Headquarters on North Clark Street. Capone’s men were disguised as “police” to start a raid at the headquarters of their rival gang. The men lined the victims up along a wall and shot them all with machine and shotguns without a struggle in broad daylight. Ordinary citizens in Chicago were horrified and blamed Al Capone for this Massacre, which ultimately destroyed his reputation completely. (Source A and F).
Tom and Daisy are careless people who “smash up things and creatures and then retreat back into their money” as they have no remorse for the pain and death they have caused in Gatsby and the Wilsons (Fitzgerald 179). C. Tom’s carelessness is shown through his affairs, not only with Myrtle, but also with the chambermaid a week after he married Daisy. His carelessness is shown through his relationships as well as his careless driving as he crashes his car while with the chambermaid (Fitzgerald 77). D. In chasing the American Dream it is assumed that Gatsby has become corrupt as it is rumored that he is a bootlegger, “a German spy during the war,… (and that) he killed a man” (Fitzgerald 44). E. According to Roger Pearson’s literary criticism of The Great Gatsby: As a prophet of the American Dream, Gatsby fails – miserably – a victim of his own warped idealism and false set of values.
Was the old world end? Writers reacted to this question by turning toward Modernist emotion. Modernist fiction spoke of the inner self and consciousness. Instead of progress, the Modernist writer saw a decline of civilization. Instead of new technology, the Modernist writer saw cold machinery and increased capitalism, which alienated the individual and led to loneliness.
Adams lost faith in the political virtue of his countrymen. Adams saw them repeating the mistakes of Europe, especially in the pursuit of luxury, with its unavoidable social and political corruption. A lot more control and authority were needed to govern a society dividing into the aristocratic few and many democrats. John Adams hardly wrote three volumes of A Defence of the Constitutions of Government of the United States of America. (Biography 1) The works stated that a strong, independent executive was essential to mediate between opposing interests.
Frank Lloyd Wright By: Maryam Al-Mughaizwi 2872015 Introduction The process of defining modernism has been considered complex. It is considered less rational as a style, since its boundaries appear looser as compared to classicism. Many critics would come have with contradicting view that modernism is can be classified differently rather than a style, but an amalgamation of aesthetics and receptivity. A good example is Frank Lloyd Wright who vehemently went against the grouping of a style but perceived his work as the modernist architecture. In fact, he believed that he brought eh change that is already existing in this platform.
History Vs. Hollywood: The Untouchables The Untouchables is an action packed movie, set in Chicago, 1920s. Crime controls the city, the system has gone corrupt, and people are dying.

This means that there are no appropriate measures in place to curb drug trafficking, crime and violence. He documents various incidents in which the police rob the citizens. For instance, where a police gang in which Officer Terry was involved, rob a CHA home. He himself was a victim of this violent crime when he was with JT. The head of the neighboring Girls and Boys club is also used to show the real image of the Chicago police.
Since Grendel was born from evil he could never be happy which angered him when he heard all the people in Herot having a good time. Grendel was always sinning by murdering every night. In lines 1-2 it backs up my stating of Grendel being evil it says “A powerful monster, living down in the darkness, impatient.” Grendel was smart in many ways. One way Grendel was smart was because he knew when to strike. Grendel killed many of people undetected.
The media has blown the slogan “black lives matter” way out of proportion, creating an image that all cops are racist against innocent black people. I read an article titled, “Political correctness almost costs an Alabama cop his life,” and it is devastating to learn how this detective hesitate using force on the suspect in order to protect himself from imminent harm. In summary, an Alabama detective was pistol whipped with his own gun, used by a suspect that he stopped on traffic. According to Slippers (2015), “The police detective says he chose not to use force against a man attacking him because he didn’t want to be another headline. The brutal beating occurred during a routine traffic stop” (p. 2).
During the twentieth century, liberals were anxious to distance themselves from anything that might possibly be perceived as being associated with communism, which resulted in many cold war liberals abandoning their original concerns. Not only did the nation’s cultural and intellectual life suffer as a result of the weakened noncommunist left, but the institutions of American democracy suffered as well. Rather than arguing against issues, such as McCarthyism, that were occurring and would have originally concerned left-wing ideologists, those issues now became irrelevant. Therefore, in my opinion, the weakening of the noncommunist left can be partly blamed on liberals and progressives who reacted poorly to accusations that they were communist
It is made clear that even those with wealth and opportunity did not have the perfect lives they were portrayed to have. In this way, The Great Gatsby effectively shatters the facade of the American Dream and changes the way Americans view our history and that time period. The actions of people during the 1920s contributed to the Great Depression and by having this novel to illustrate the issues in society at this time period, another depression of the same magnitude has, so far, been avoided, despite times of similar
