This proves to be significant because this shows the lengths that Ronnie is willing to go to in order to keep his friend safe. Withholding information from the police about a murder can make you an accessory to the crime, despite knowing this he was willing to lie and possibly endanger himself. Obstructing justice so that your friend can be safe is a very difficult decision to make, as it affects more than just you. The parents of Gene Hanlon would be devastated to not know how their son died, the police will have spent lots of their time and money on a case that only two people truly understand how it unfolded. The soldier in the story “Gregory” also made many sacrifices for his friend, but in a much more subtle way.
Don’t you remember… Miss Tretheway came along and you all ran” (Buckler 114). If Miss Tretheway would not have been there to alarm off the bullies, Wes would not have been able to get the wash to Mrs. Banks with the possibility of worse actions.

Misunderstandings As represented in the story “A Good Man Is Hard to Find” by Flannery O'Connor, a good man was hard to be and had different ideas of how to pursue it. Going through the journey with the grandmother and her family learning about the Misfit, the audience can witness the actions being made by different characters to witness their fall and/or their triumph. When looking into the grandmother more deeply, the audience can detect the intensity of her self absorption. She would consider herself a lady with high standards of herself. “In case of an accident, anyone seeing her dead on the highway would know at once that she was a lady” (O’Connor 297).
Without machismo many of the events that occurred would have never taken place, especially the murder of Santiago by the Vicario brothers. Machismo is what influenced the some of the townspeople into believing it was Vicario brothers’ duty to kill Santiago because he allegedly made their sister impure. Although their mother approved of them killing Santiago, she still thought of it as a sin; they thought it was not sinful to defend their family’s honor. “they had so far recovered and were so convinced that they right that they didn't want to be taken out by night, as had happened with the family, but in the broad daylight and with their faces showing.” This is the scene that occurs after they are jailed for the murder and were about to be transferred to Riohacha. They showed no remorse for murdering Santiago

He was accused of rape, but he was actually helping Miss Mayella because she looked like she needed help. It was not Tom who raped her, it was Bob Ewell who hurt Mayella.The reader knows this because she was acting fishy when Atticus asked the question “when he’s riled--has he ever beaten you?” (Lee 210). She acted suspiciously by looking around and pausing until the judge asked her to answer the question. This shows the reader that Miss Mayella was hesitant about answering because she wanted to say that her father did beat her, but did not want to lose the case. By understanding that Tom was kind to Miss Mayella and innocent of raping her because Bob Ewell hurt her, the reader knows that Tom is like a mockingbird.

And how will this justify the issues of male sex offenders from repeating their sex crimes. While there are many pros to chemical castration, the side effects outnumber the real issue. Chemical castration goes against a person’s human rights, it also is an option the government hands out so that the offender can avoid jail, yet they are still suffering due to their health’s side effects.

The process of administering a Depo-Provera injection or pill to sex offenders is to lower their testosterone levels and decrease the sexual desires to preventing them from repeating the criminal acts.
The way I viewed his heart’s desire made me feel like he is less of a bad person than people might think. I thought his heart’s desire was to be the best king he could be. This is an important reason because all he wanted to do was be the best king he could be, while others thought otherwise. In this case, he thought it would be best to kill Antigone because she broke a law and he wanted to protect the people of Thebes from a felon, even if it was somebody else. In line 1228 he says to the leader: “Oh it’s hard giving up on the heart’s desire… but I will do it” after he is convinced to let Antigone free.
