He didn 't do so as calmly as Atticus, in fact, he questioned Tom in his cross-examination very rudely. On the other hand, he questioned his witness, Mayella, gently and spared her feelings. This trial was never about justice, it 's about race. It was just a distraction, Tom was a dead man since the
When it comes to racial profiling people automatically believe that it is harsh and inhuman as well that the victim had nothing to do that caused racial profiling , when it comes to being frisked and detained. In an article written by “National institute of Justice” it stated “What is clear from the research is that race is a consistent predictor of attitudes toward the police. Hence, some researchers argue that what happens during the stop is as important as the reason for it”. when it comes to law enforcement people always blame the police officer for taken a little more action on detaining someone. What people don 't know is why that officer took that extra action to the person being detained.
Proctor’s case is ultimately not believed by the court because Elizabeth did not tell the truth, therefore he will pay the consequences of his actions according to the court. The morning before his conviction, he speaks to his wife Abigail and confesses by saying “I cannot mount gibbet like a saint, it is fraud, My Honesty is broke, Elizabeth, I am no good man, nothing's spoiled by giving them this lie that were not rotten long before.” (Miller 126). By this quotation in the text the reader is able to tell that Proctor, who knows is going to die, expresses his disappointment in himself and asks Elizabeth for forgiveness for his crime of adultery. This in turn shows the sporadic change of proctors situation. Starting as a secret, later becoming evidence and finally being used as a
This leaves them speechless. While they were boasting before about how they would find and hunt down the killer, they are now confused. This may be questioning whether this is really a matter of free will or if it is out of their hands. In addition, Sophocles unites the chorus by using the word “I” instead of viewing them as multiple people like before. By doing this, it shows that everyone is extremely confused and unsure of what to believe.
Danforth responds saying “ I cannot hear you.” His response shows that he could not bear to hear the truth of the situation. The conflict in The Crucible could have had a different outcome, if Judge Danforth had seen through the facade that was presented to him. He was fed lies, beginning with Abigail’s wild stories. As people realized he was easily convinced, they used this to their advantage to take down people they did not like. Even after having his judgment questioned by people of the religious establishment he would still not face his arrogance and ignorance and make the trial
“We wished to know… about all the things” (23). He has asked so many questions- unlike the others- which the teachers forbade it. According to the council, curiosity is selfish- since it cannot give rest and once answered, more questions come. The Council does not like curiosity; it could lead to the revelation of the Unspeakable Times. Equalitys intelligence was also one of the reasons why he was given the job he did.
Ozymandias portrays the conflict as the power that can be arrogant and cruel but ultimately can’t last forever. The traveler’s perspective reveals how changeable power and influence can be over time. The poet of Ozymandias has used structural devices to show how power can cause arrogance. This is further justified as a conflict between man’s superiority vs. religion. This is exposed when “trunkless
”Take Scout and Dill home.” We were accustomed to prompt, if not cheerful acquiescence to Atticus’s instructions, but from the way he stood Jem was not thinking of budging. ”Go home, I said.” Jem shook his head,”(p203). He disobeys not petulantly but maturely, as he grasps Atticus’s difficult situation concerning the case and therefore fear for Atticus’s safety. Later in the story, during the trial, the jury wrongly finds Tom Robinson guilty despite Atticus’s capable and intense defense. Jem is shocked by the verdict: ”His [Jem’s] face was streaked with angry tears as we made our way through the cheerful crowd.
She even wonders if God is just a powerless creator who has no power to save those who suffer from atrocities. According to Dillard, “If he abandoned us, slashing creation loose at its base from any roots in the real; and if we in turn abandon everything-all these illusions of time and space and lives-in order to love only the real: the where are we?” (24). Occasion The larger occasion is in a world where tumults, chaos, riots, accidents, and incorrigibly miserable fate happen to people that are innocent and faithful to God. According to Dillard, “Of faith I have nothing, only if truth: that this one God is
In the beginning of the story, Judge Danforth is a highly respected judge that was brought in to settle the craziness of salem, but throughout the story he seems to have to accuse others to keep his authority.On page 79 Judge Danforth says“ Do you take it upon yourself to determine what this court shall believe and what it shall set aside” and also has to accuse John Proctor of “undermining the court” when Proctor is trying to prove his friends innocent. This is Danforth getting defensive and feeling attacked by anyone who has a differing opinion than him.And rather than looking into Proctors friends who are uptight citizens, turns the doubt onto others. In the middle Proctor says the Danforth “A fire, a fire is burning! I hear the boot of Lucifer, I see his filthy face! And it is my face, and yours, Danforth!
Jay started to get paranoid about the situation, Made up a story with Jenn about what happened, and called the police. Except Jay’s story is wishy-washy because it isn’t real, everybody was always saying how much of a liar Jay was, and Jen’s story doesn’t match up at parts because Jay doesn’t have it together. The only way for him to be sure that Adnan was the one to blame, is to make up a story about how Adnan was angry at Hae. But how does Jay know all this information? Jay has to put himself in the story also, put himself in the position where he can’t get in too much trouble, but in a position where he knows everything.
It was not only the system that had flaws but also the people on the board. The prosecutors "opposed testing, arguing that it would make no difference" whether or not those being convicted got DNA tested (Garrett 1). Confessions was one of the causes that often led to the downfall of those innocently convicted. In the case of Jeffrey Deskovic, the police officer was supposed to conduct the polygraph examination. The detective for this case explained that he did not actually conduct the examination but only tested "Deskovic 's truthfulness" and to "get
It isn’t enough to pray to the Dark Lord for something...you must also put forth some effort on your end; It is a popular belief that Satanists do not believe in the Christian God. Atheistic Satanists (LaVeyan Satanists) do not believe in God, they do not even believe in Satan as a real entity. To believe in Satan, you must believe in God, and visa versa. As much as the Dark Lord despises the Christian God, Jehovah, he will tell you that he is the true Creator. Satan cannot produce life.
I personally feel like if he is telling the truth about Adnan and if he honestly wanted to help Hae then he would have told the police. You can 't just sit there knowing that someone you know is going to be murdered and not do anything about it, you would have that on your mind. I don 't believe Jay 's story at all, he is a sketchy person who can 't make his mind up about certain things.He keeps changing details in his stories, and his alibi doesn’t seem right to me. Jay keeps going back and forth on his word and how things actually happened. He doesn’t seem trustworthy to me.
Edwards says that it is “nothing of your own, nothing that you have ever done, nothing that you can do, to induce God to spare you one moment” (Edwards 43). This is another instance that he uses logos to show common sense by saying that we do not deserve God’s forgiveness, but we have received it, and the unconverted could not care less. Ethos, pathos, and logos: from ancient times and still being used now due to their relevancy and accomplishments. Jonathan Edwards uses all three of these appeals in “Sinners in the Hands of an Angry God” to get his point across and to persuade the unconverted to turn o Jesus Christ. When truly analyzing this sermon
