And though the reader is by no means in a place to diagnose and right off all of his flaws and acts of violence as mental illness, we also can’t dismiss Hyde as a purely evil man. Additionally, since it is Hyde committing the crime and not Jekyll, it leaves the reader to wonder if this is Stevenson’s way of saying that all people, or possibly just the more creative ones, have a repressed side of themselves with traits similar to that of a mental illness, even if they themselves don’t present with one. Hyde was an extreme, he was a man who “trampled calmly over the child’s body and left her screaming on the ground” (50), having no regard for human emotion. However, repressed personas are often only depicted as extremes, and it is possible to say that if we all allowed our deep, unknown inner emotions surface, we could have the potential to be just as violent and
In The Dark Knight, the Joker is wicked and vile to the city of Gotham killing lots of people and can be seen as a hero because he exposed all the corruption in the government. Although they have similar experiences in adulthood Caesar and the Joker are opposites because of how they grew up, as a result Caesar is a hero and the Joker
This demonstrates that he greatly cared for his children and their safety but was prone to having psychotic episodes that muddled his mind and led him to commit dangerous and unusual acts. There is also an inclination to believe that if he had not suffered from this state, then the offence would not have been committed, specially not in the barbaric way it was done. Thus, it cannot be concluded that the accused willfully preformed the act, nor that the mens rea and the actus reus coincided while he was not in a psychotic state. (Roach, 113) Related to this finding is another element that supports the verdict of the Honorable Judge, which is the Principle of Fundamental Justice that states that no one should be “punished for morally involuntary actions.” (Roach, 82) A person who successfully raises the mental disorder defence is considered to be morally innocent of the act because they were not acting freely, in this case, free from psychotic ideations. (Roach, 83).
Although many people feel that teens should not be given severe punishments because they are immature and innocent, they have not considered the problem teens are creating by committing these crimes.. In reality, if teens are old enough and mature enough to commit violent and vicious crimes, they should
It does not make a criminal a better person, however, the chances are that either he will come out as a better person with regrets of his past or he will have a grouse against the society and come out as a person with revengeful feelings. No one is born a criminal; it is the society and certain conditions that compel a person to commit crimes. Punishments are given to criminals, aiming to reform them and turn them into good citizens. Inmates are placed in these isolation units for a number of reasons ranging from protecting the other prisoners, to providing justice. Solitary confinement prevents from any harm.
Police Officers Stereotypes are widely circulated oversimplifications of people, they stem from characteristics when looking at groups or individuals. On the other hand, a misconception is a view or opinion that is incorrect because it is based on faulty thinking or understanding. In short, it is an opinion that assumes the worst due to misleading information about groups. We stereotype people because it is cognitively effect, meaning once you have categorized you no longer need to consider information about each individual member of a group. In law enforcement, police officers are seen as racist crooks looking to cause harm and ruin lives of others, when in reality that is completely false.

But even though Cherry tolerated some of the greasers the rest of the socs just thought that they were dirty liars, cheats and thieves. Although that may be true there is no reason for them to be mistreated. It’s just like in today’s society, if a person is from the hood they are seen as lesser than
Although that the possibility should also be there, there are a few that will completely rehabilitate. But most will not and should deserve to stay incarcerated for the rest of their life for taking a life or other monstrous crimes. These juveniles that commit horrible crimes are not brain dead, but the violence-loving culture that is a part of our society is a part of it. It is not a solid argument for juveniles that commit heinous crimes. Knowing what is right and wrong is not hard to grasp.
We open the door to potentially violent drug crimes due to people who are high on drugs who use poor judgement, and could easily hurt someone or possibly injure or harm themselves. "Nonviolent" offenders sent to prison are not nice people. They could have committed any of the following crimes and still be classified "nonviolent": burglary, breaking and entering, grand theft auto, identity theft, drug trafficking, and the list go on and
