Clearly he did not have the right coping skills and support to teach him how to deal with them. He took his feelings out on other people and their families thinking it was just a way of revenge and that it was normal. Which is why we call Allan a serial killer and a sociopath. The definition of a serial killer is a person who murders 3 or more people. A sociopath is someone who kills or harms another person or thing without feeling any
Some people might think in the opposite side that George should not killed Lennie because Lennie did not mean to anything. He has done it without knowing how strong of himself. Lennie made many troubles this might be because of his disability, but this is the reason that he deserves to live. He has done many thing that make George get into trouble and It is better if Lennie has to die because of George shoot him not the other. "All the time he coulda had such a good time if it was not for you” (Steinbeck).
I disagree with Hammurabi’s code because most laws were to cruel and targeted certain people. Although the code sculpted the culture in 1797 BC, the code would have no chance of surviving in any modern country to this day due to the harsh punishments received from breaking the laws. According to Hammurabi, he stated “...the strong might not inquire the weak, in order to protect the widows and orphans, I set up these my precious words...etc” (Doc B). Although I do not agree with Hammurabi’s code, I do believe that he was trying to create and maintain a healthy and safe environment for his people by trying to prevent crime with such a harsh set of laws. However, the consequences for not abiding these laws were too harsh.
In Gerard Jones’ essay “Violent Media is Food for Kids,” he forces the reader to decide whether the argument that there is a direct correlation between violent media and violent children is valid, or if that by denying children the freedom to experience violence through media, society is harming a very important foundation of finding one’s self. I find it similar to the Jude Priest case because two parents banded together to sue a band for allegedly putting subliminal messages in their heavy metal music that caused their sons to commit suicide. While most of the expert witness concluded that there was not enough scientific research to prove that subliminal messages can truly influence someone, nor can Vance or Belknap could really be considered
Another moment of morality is when TimHead was feeling bad about shooting a kid in the face. He thought about his brother instantly when he shot the kid, because his brother was around the same age as him. TimHead knew it wasn’t the right thing to do. “He was trying to kill you. Us.
Have you ever had an opinion on if child soldiers should have consequences on their actions or have u ever thought that it is not all their fault? Many people say the kids should be prosecuted because they know what they were doing while others think differently. I believe that it is not the kids fault, the first reason i think this is because when kids are kids they can’t tell grown ups what they want to do. The second reason i think that they should not be prosecuted is because while they are being recruited they get drugged. The last reason i think that kids should be set off free is because when the children are fighting they can be in serious danger.
A normal person probably wouldn’t feel “an impulse to cry aloud with joy” when they hear a scream of pain. This also links back to my claim that he changes over the course of the story. It relates to the claim because my first quote showed him saying he does not approve of Zaroff murdering people yet this quote shows he is very violent himself. “ ‘Splendid! One of us is to furnish a repast for the hounds.
The author’s tone in this quote is violent and bitter. Eric saying that he “hated almost everyone “, would support the reader’s thinking towards what kind of person Eric is, and what Eric is thinking. Eric’s use of language almost immediately gives the reader a hint of what he is capable of, not in the sense that he would literally “rip is head off and eat it” but in the sense that he is capable of doing bad things. Given the fact that people throughout the United States have already heard of the mass shooting in Columbine, the reader would promptly identify Eric as the killer and they would be right. The author’s purpose could be to keep the reader thinking: who is the killer?
He also uses these devices to show that society is partly to blame for this butchery and could have avoided this ridiculous situation had they changed. His most powerful device, however, is emotion, by reminding the court of how these boys’ families will be crushed and their future generations shamed, should the court decide on the death penalty. Darrow’s perspective is that war transformed society, which then taught these boys to place a cheap value on human life. Darrow uses historical references to establish that the world has been drastically influenced by brutality and these ways of violence have been taught to the younger generations. He states: “These boys were brought up in it.
In Law 195 it states, “If a son has struck his father, his hands shall be cut off.” This law seems, as well, too harsh. The son should get a punishment but getting your hands cut off for hitting his father would lead to son being scared. In conclusion, Hammurabi 's code is unjust. The evidence shows that the Personal Injury Laws didn’t protect all people equally, the Property Laws punishments were too harsh, and the Family Laws can cause someone 's death. Most of Hammurabi’s laws are not just to the people or society of Babylon.
