Her point is valid in that juveniles cannot be excused for their crimes, however Jenkins lacks the insight that much like how the brain changes through age, a teenager can transition from immaturity to maturity. Furthermore, if sentencing most juvenile to life sentences, it prevents them from learning their mistakes. For example, Greg Ousley during his adult years expressed his regret in killing his parents, and hopes to reconcile with his family members. Ousley comes to a realization, “ what he interpreted in his father as disinterest, even disgust, more likely stemmed from a paralyzing self-consciousness” (Par. 86).

George and Hazel’s fourteen-year-old son has been arrested, but on page one it reads, “It was tragic, all right, but George and Hazel couldn’t think about it very hard.” In Guy and Mildred’s society, there is war getting ready to happen and people around the world dislike their country since they’re better off than others. But, just like George and Hazel, no one thinks about the war in Fahrenheit 451’s society. On page fifty-five of Fahrenheit 451, Captain Beatty says, “We must all be alike. Not everyone born free and equal as the constitution says, but everyone made equal.” This quote is similar to “Harrison Bergeron” because their society was made equal to each other just like in Fahrenheit’s society.

Do Rich People Get Off Easier When They Break the Law? If an intoxicated motorist was driving, had a head on collision with one’s parents, murdered them, and got away with it all because they had a large sum of money. How could the close relatives and family members of the deceased victim be satisfied with that? The law states that all in the United States is to be treated properly and given the same Constitutional rights as everybody else. Any middle-class plaintiff would attempt to search for justification as to why the upper-class defendant was let off easier.
Beverly conveniently points out that he was too unstable to be an FBI agent in her first conversation with Will. Bev: “Never been an FBI agent?” Will: "Strict screening procedures.“ Bev: "Detects instability. You unstable?” He is treated sensitively and cautiously by many of the main characters on the show. Alana warns Jack, “Don’t let him get too close.” indicating that Jack should take responsibility for Will’s well-being because he is not strong enough to take responsibility for his own well-being. There is apparently some precident for worrying about Will that the audience does not know, so we take the characters’ word for it.

He does provide compelling information concerning the teenage brain development but is not an expert in the field nor does he relate the source of his information. The wording of this piece demonstrates the perspective of Michael Schultz being just a kid and is aimed at getting people to react on his defense due to his age. Peters does remark that Schultz is not completely blameless which tends to evoke that leniency should be given and that the police are wrong to charge him (2013). From a political vantage his wording about a stupid lie is used to emotionally generate with people that it is unfair and that the lie is what caused police to charge Schultz. Peters goes on to say that Schultz should have known better but due to his developing brain that he did not and that it was his impulsivity that led him to point a gun at his cousin (2013).
After months of testifying the trial comes to the end on July 11th, when jury deliberates for over 10 hours before coming back with the verdict of not guilty of first degree murder, aggravated child abuse and aggravated manslaughter of a child. Casey was found guilty of four counts of providing false information to law enforcement. I personally believe Casey should have been found guilty of first degree murder of her daughter. If Caylee did accidentally drown, why would they place duct tape over her mouth and dump her body in the woods, why did they call the police and report a accidental drowning? Another piece of information that father supports that Casey did indeed kill her daughter, was her search history before Caylee went missing, why did she google so many ways to die?

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.
