We can limit this response by making these situations benign. An example of this is the following joke: “ How many cops does it take to push a black man down the stairs? None... he fell.” The first statement reminds us of police brutality against African Americans and thus is a violation of the way that we think the world ought to be, while the second lightens the mood and makes the situation benign. Therefore in order to be humorous during blatantly offensive situations, one must find a means to make the situation less threatening to the individual. This can be done by creating distance between the audience and the violation, which explains why the death of Alan Pinkerton (the inspector who caught John Wikes Booth) as a result of biting his own tongue is comedic to someone hearing about it 150 years later.
In the years since Frankenstein’s release many readers of the famous narrative have come to regard Victor Frankenstein with little affection. They cite his selfish and reckless behavior, which frequently cause the misery which torments him. However, Victor’s self-centered nature, goes beyond simply a flaw of character, it is indicative of a deeper affliction, narcissistic personality disorder; or NPD. NDP is characterized by an over inflated sense of self, beyond what is developmentally appropriate.

This article demonstrates how Bill Bratton, as the Commissioner of the New York Police Department (NYPD) from 1994 to 1996, William J. Bratton fought crime throughout the city of Ney York with legendary achievement, leading a national revolution in attitudes toward policing. Bratton adopted a “broken windows”1 community policing strategy of zero tolerance for minor offenses and championed statistical analysis to prevent crimes before they occurred. In the 70s and 80s, as Bratton continued his career in policing, institutional theories seemed dominant. Nixon’s brand of “tough-on-crime” and “law and order” conservatism meant that community relations were largely ignored by police. In 1982, James Wilson sought to re-establish some balance.
In the novel To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee the term mockingbird symbolizes innocence in a person. In the novel it focuses on the fact that innocence, represented by the mockingbird, can be wrongfully harmed. There are two characters: Tom Robinson and Arthur “Boo” Radley that are supposed to represent the mockingbird. In the novel, Tom Robinson is the best example of a mockingbird because he is prosecuted for a crime he did not commit. Also, he was judged unfairly based on the color of his skin in his trial.

Instead, they thought it was easier to charge him with murder and ruin a fifteen year old life. This film demonstrated a lot of the issues we have learned throughout the semester. This film showed how the procedures in the justice system need to be addressed because law enforcement make a lot of mistakes when they do not follow the producers correctly. The mistakes law enforcement made in this film demonstrated how a person is either innocent or guilty depending the way law enforcement does their job. Overall, this was a great film demonstrating the mistakes the justice system
1. Freud would explain the personality difference between Mike and Marty Scanlon using the psychoanalytic theory, a mapping the unconscious mind. Where he argued that most behavior is motivated or a result of the unconscious. This is the part of the personality which contains urges, drives, beliefs, feelings, memories, knowledge and instincts totally unaware of by the individual. Another explanation from Freud in terms of personality differences is that Mike had a fixation in the development of one of the five psychosexual stages namely the phallic stage which is the period beginning around age three where the pleasure of a child is focused on genitals and they unconsciously harbor sexual interest in their mother, sees their father as their rival and even wishes to kill him.
