The judge was trying to influence the kid and to breed the idea of eternal violence, and the scene with Elrod shows that he did not succeed completely, since the man is trying to avoid violence in first stance, but rather to calm him down. Unfortunately, it does not work out, and it seems that there is vicious circle, and to stop violence one need to posses this quality himself. A plotline that appears here again is the judge’s “sins of the fathers” story about the shopkeeper and the traveller. Dead father or the father who is not interested in his child harms in the same way as the father with evil intentions does: the man and Elrod are close to the traveller’s son and they try to live up the masculinity idea, but they will never reach the
This is accurate to the movie as well, though it could be argued that her mom was much worse in the movie. On a side note, her dad never made an appearance in the book, but was represented as a “goofball” in the movie. Arnold Friend differed from the book in his representation of the film. In the book, Arnold Friend was much more threatening. He said many sexual things, that he was going to burn down their house if she did not come out and even threatened his family.
In the article Child Soldiers Should Be Prosecuted, it states “ In Sierra Leone child soldiers committed acts of rape, mutilation and mass killings of civilians.”(na some people will think that they should be held against their crimes but they were forced to kill by the commanders they would have not done any of these stuff if they weren’t forced to do it they were kids and believed in everything so when they got taken the commander could have told them he's their dad so they look up to him as a leader and do everything they say so they will also do it for food because they don’t get to eat if they don’t kill and go out to war. Also, it must be said that they are just little kids and they don’t know what is right from wrong in the article armed and underage, it states, “He is shouldering an automatic fully loaded rifle.” This shows that they are little and they are forced to carry the gun or they will be made an example of by the commanders or some of the commanders solder and then they will use that to have more control over them because they will be scared and they will know what will happen if they try to display him. This is why some people think that they should be prosecuted but they should be given amtey because they were young and they were forced into
In the article " Boy, 13, charged 'wrestling ' death of girl,5" by Kennedy ryan, he states that the 13 year old boy killed his half-sister. The boy should know whats good and bad but in this case it wasnt his fauly. Because he thought he was just playing with the 5 year old girl. The victimed moms just left the boy to babysit his half-sister but instead she should of took them with her to the store, if thats where she was going. The boy didnt want to kill the girl but to him it was a wrestling game but he didnt know that by playing like that he was gonna killed the 5 year old girl(Half-sister).
For example, when he explains why he calls himself “The Misfit”, “…because I can’t make what all I done wrong fit what all I gone through in punishment” (366). He claims that he did not kill his father. If he truly did not kill his father why would he kills innocent people? He acts like a victim in the whole conversation with the grandma. He says that “..if I had of been there I would of known and I wouldn’t be like I am now” (367).
This is absolutely psychotic and down right scary. No father should ever take action of killing their own kids on purpose. Some citizens wanted to believe that “It must have been an accident”(35), this is because what Jim did is horrifying. He could have avoided killing her and solved his problems in so many ways. Jim could have worked harder and earned more money and then
For somebody to tell him ‘No.’ To have somebody lay down the law… give him something solid to stand on’” (Hinton 116). Without their guidance, Bob turned to violence in a desperate attempt for his parents to pay attention to him. On the other hand, friendship is another aspect of culture that further affects people. In The Outsiders, both greasers and Socs have formed negative friend groups called cliques. According to the article “Click or Clique: Positive and Negative Teen Social Groups,” cliques are, “organized around power and popularity” (Hartwell-Walker & Grohol).
However unlike Victor, the creature never developed the ability of self-control. He was able to develop the intelligent aspect by listening and learning from the De Lacey family, but he did not know how to control his anger against mankind when they lashed out violently towards him. Trying to save a little girl from drowning, her father thought the creature was trying to harm her, and shot the creature. This caused the creature great pain and “[he] vowed eternal hatred and vengeance to all mankind”(Shelley). The creature thought if “I am miserable” why shouldn't “[mankind]... share my wretchedness” (Shelley).
The creature’s immediate reaction is to kill William. Murder is never justifiable and as a result of not having a relationship where Victor teaches the creature right from wrong, the creature does all he knows; which is hurting people. An identical reaction is seen in John Sharry’s article about a misbehaving four-year-old, “When I ask him why he does this he says he is angry and mad” (1). Even though their response to what they feel is drastically different, both the boy and the creature react in anger, which is interestingly suggesting that the creature is comparable to a
Imagine the family of the boy he murdered. Nathaniel shot the boy and imagine the horror and sadness on the faces of the boy’s family when they learned that he would no longer be with them, that their beloved brother, son, or grandson who had yet to live his life was dead. In another article on juvenile justice, it was written, “If offenders believed juvenile courts wouldn’t hold them fully responsible for their crimes, they would be likely to commit serious crimes.” Kids needs to know there are consequences. If they only received a warning or a lighter sentence, they would not care and would be a threat to others. In order to prevent more serious crimes from happening, the youthful criminals need to be stopped early on and learn that adult courts would hold them fully responsible for their
Manitowoc County did not abide by the law on the Brendan Dassey murder trial. Investigators pulled Brendan Dassey out of class to question him without his parent 's consent. Investigators coerced Brendan´s statements to make Steven Avery look guilty. Manitowoc County District Attorney Ken Kratz did everything in his power to make Manitowoc County seem like they were abiding by the law when they really did not. “He said I declined to go in with Brendan but I wanted to go in with Brendan, the police wouldn 't let me."
Pedophile in Penn State The general argument made by Maia Szalavitz in her work, “Bystander Psychology: Why Some Witnesses to Crime Do Nothing”, is that it is wrong when people view crime, and they do not take action. More specifically, Szalavitz argues that people tend to keep quiet for each other as a conglomerate. She writes, ”Mike Mcqueary… witnessed child rape firsthand in 2002... How is it that a powerfully built ex-quarterback could watch the rape of a 10 year old boy and do nothing to stop it?... And why did the team and the university fail to act at every possible step? ” In this passage Szalavitz is suggesting that during the Penn state child rape cases by Jerry Sandusky, even close colleges who clearly knew of the situation, but
I believe in favor of the teenagers, that giving them a life sentences without parole is not the best option. Teens haven 't lived that long in order to learn from their mistakes and fully experience the real world and being on their own without their parents guidance. In the case of Jacob Ind, I believe he was wrongly accused of murder and was mentally scarred due to the abuse of his parents causing him to commit this crime. Jacob and his brother would be sexually abused almost every night by their stepfather and emotional abused by their mother 's hate of the two boy 's existence. He saw no way out of this situation and had to free himself from this torture before it would kill him.
Firstly, the students need to aware of and understand the magnitude of the massacre. The lack of information could lead to many misconceptions. For example, in the Jim Keegstra case of 1985-1992, Keegstra was claimed to have taught students that, “an International Jewish Conspiracy is working to destroy Christianity and create a new world government based in Israel.” (Calgary Herald)These type of ideas can create confusion in young people’s minds and make them think that it never occurred. They should be taught the whole aspect and realize that not all German people were Nazis. Critics claim
The West Memphis Three was a trail convicting three teenagers: Damien Echols, Jason Baldwin, and Jessie Misskelley of killing three little boys; Michael Moore, Stevie Branch, and Chris Byers. This trail was considered to be a satanic ritual because Damien Echols wasn’t considered normal to the other members of society in his town. He did “dabble in many religions” and Satanism being one with admiring photos of torture and death, but it was not a satanic ritual. The court used members that were far removed from any alleged "Satanic Panic" in West Memphis to give the defendants a better shot at a fair trial and unbiased juries. Damien Echols was sentenced to solitary confinement for eight years from his 20 years in prison.
