The issue of who’s at fault between Sonny and his older brother is one that cannot simply be answered by pointing figures. It is hard to blame Sonny for the events that have occurred throughout his life. At the same time it is difficult to put the blame on Sonny’s older brother. He was hurt, confused and afraid that someone who he loved was making decisions that could potentially one day ruin that loved one’s life. Though Sonny’s brother was there to help his brother, whether it was because of his promise to his mother or not, Sonny’s brother never took the time or effort to fully understand Sonny’s addiction or Sonny’s passion for music.
He knows he made the mistake and believes he deserves proper justice for his mistakes. Also, when Elizabeth and John talk about the new court, Elizabeth mentions that they have put fourteen people in jail already, and “Proctor simply looks at her unable to grasp it” (52).

Juror number 3 went off knowing that they’ll spend some time in the room debating whether the boy was the murderer of his father, along with the other jurors. The way juror number three was displaying in a way was that he was judging the boy since he was in the courtroom and mentioned he looked as guilty as ever, but this preconceived notion goes more into depth with the same juror commenting about his background. When someone has the mind of bias thinking, that person is entitled to only see the flaws of others and not the positive qualities one possess, yet can’t see their own mistakes committed noticed. As this continues, juror eight viewed this case and led some other jurors to think and dramatize the evidence they were given by the testimonies from what they saw. Little by little, the jurors start to change their opinion about the case of the young man and have been supporting juror eight by the facts he has stated in the room, yet juror three still wouldn’t reason correctly and thought the guy should convicted of the
Fourthly, Mr. B confessed that he paid out of pocket for his father’s previous fender benders rather than contacting the insurance company for fear of legal repercussions. This piece of evidence is key because it shows guilt and that he knows that allowing his father to drive is wrong.

Finally, Mr. B agreed to take steps to prevent his father from driving, but failed to stay true to his word when his father got into yet another accident. The difference with this particular accident was that it obviously was damaging enough to be published in a newspaper.
Many authors convey powerful, civil messages through novels. Walter Dean Myers does that through his novel, Monster. Monster is a story about young sixteen-year-old, Steve Harmon, who is on trial for being an accessory in a murder-robbery.

The Belmont Report was written to protect human subjects in research studies. This report led to the creation of the Institutional Review Board Guidebook, which was last updated in 1993 (IRB Guidebook, 1993). Protection for human subjects began with the Nuremberg Code when judging the human experimentation done by the Nazis (IRB Guidebook, 1993). Other studies had been conducted using human subjects that led to the Belmont Report. One such unethical study is Johnson’s Monster Study that was conducted in 1939 on a group of orphans (Reynolds, 2003) that violated the Institutional Review Board guidelines, and should not be repeated.
Is it cruel to expect a person to go on with life whose fate is sealed by the monster inside them? Technological progresses have been developing over time with new inventions and new ideas.

Monstrosity is something that is unpleasant to look at.
From the emergence of literature and arts to contemporary times, monsters have served a dual purpose of both inciting fear and awe. This duality is reflected through the vastly different reactions of humans to the presence of monsters. For the young, depictions of horrific creatures often haunt their dreams, creating feelings of anxiety and terror in times of loneliness. Adults, conversely, frequently dismiss the notion of exotic beings, but rather imagine the dejected and deplorable of society as true “monsters”. The latter distinction is critical; Jeffery Cohen in his work “Monster Culture (Seven Theses), presents an intriguing claim that monsters represent their cultural body, specifically the context in which they were conceived or have
