The wooers were also plotting to kill his son, Telemachus. So taking their life wasn’t too harsh considering all the things they were doing wrong. Ergo, he was just protecting his son, his wife, his home and all his other possessions. To continue, most of the wooers killed deserved what they got. The hand maiden’s punishment of hanging might have been a little less deserved.
Another characteristic that made Harrison's character stand out is how he had the same stance and position against the government which shows his determination to make things better and free people from how the government is suppressing them. On the other hand, even though Harrison had similarities in both versions of the story the differences are the ones that help the audience decide which one they like more. The movie showed Harrison as a 20 year old but the book showed him as a 14 year old, which plays more with the audience’s sympathy. The movie showed Harrison’s violent side more than showing pity like the movie, which shows when Harrison threatens the
In this PBS documentary, The murder of Emmett Till, Stan Nelson illustrates a racial hardship and crime against the African-American community. Lynching is a mob of Caucasian people that hang in African-American in a public place to show white supremacy. Emmett Tills murder trial was completely tried in a completely biased courtroom and there was even circumstantial evidence which places JW Millam and Roy Bryant kidnapping young Emmett Till, whose body was later found.I believe that in this murder and trial we see truly how far hatred and racism can rise by just one simple act. The murder of Emmett Till caused an uprise in the civil rights movement. Working Americans now knew that if there was going to change there would have to be a fight.
Then in 1928, during this year Crystal night occurred. This was when all Jewish synagogues, houses and shops were attacked. This occurred because of the murder of a Nazi by a Jews, this lead to 30,000 Jews arrested. After this event they were forced to wear a yellow star on the clothing. Then Jews were forced out of Germany into concentration and POW camps in Britain, France, USA, Australia and Japan.
One of the biggest questions people ask is how can one person influence hundreds of people to kill. Many people think of Joseph stalin, Adolf HItler, and Jim Jones. According to ibtimes.com, Joseph Stalin killed about 35-49 million people. Adolf HItler killed roughly 11 million people (historyrocket.com). And lastly, Jim Jones killed around 900 people (jonestown.sdsu.edu).
Murder, that’s who Jack the Ripper was. They gave him this name through the media because of a man who wrote fake letters. He was given many nicknames one of them was, “the Whitechapel Murderer” (Leen). They say that he brutally slashed open his victims and cut out there vaginas and parts of their organs. The removal of internal organs from at least three of the victims led to proposals that killer had some anatomical or surgical knowledge (Jones).
He even kidnapped hundreds of people, put them in the boats that were stolen, then incinerated the ships with people still in them. Was what he found really worth honoring him for? Was it really worth slaughtering all of the people he did just to reclaim lost ships and to find a new route? Vasco da Gama is guilty of committing 2nd degree murder.
Those people who had hatred against another race thought that they were more supreme. Both things had lots of people dying and lots of incidents happened because of hatred. They both had “groups” of people who tried to be more supreme and hated all other kinds of people. In the rise of Hitler it was the Nazi Party, and in To Kill a Mockingbird it was the farmers and some of the white residents. To Kill a Mockingbird is a book that expresses racism and hatred that affects people.
The bitter defeat of Germany in the World War 1 and the humiliating Treaty of Versailles gave rise to an indigenous and extreme form of fascism in Germany called Nazism. This ideology leads to one of the worst genocide in the history of mankind, known as The Holocaust, in which approximately six million Jews were killed by the Nazi regime under the command of Adolf Hitler and its collaborators. These killings took place throughout Nazi Germany and German occupied territories. During and after World War ll, i.e., between 1941- 1945, Jews were targeted and methodically murdered in the largest genocide of the 20th cent. Every arm of Germany’s bureaucracy was involved in the logistics of the genocides, turning the Third Reich into “a genocidal
Even more Cubans were killed by state forces when they tried to flee the country, which occurred during the 1980 Canimar River Massacre and the Tugboat Massacre of 1994.” Any person who kills others for his/her benefit is not a good person. “Fidel Castro’s 49-year reign was characterized by a ruthless suppression of freedom of expression”. So Castro ultimately left a legacy of failure. Castro held his power not by popular demand but through brutal dictatorship. A dictatorship in which executed and imprisoned thousands of
